ASHLEY + MASON | COUNTRY LANE LODGE WEDDING | DES MOINES, IA WEDDING FLORIST

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects,always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres. Love never fails.
— 1 Corinthians 13

Bride in white wedding gown with fitted waist and white lace stands with bridesmaids in blush and green floral dresses. All the dresses of the wedding party are sleeveless with a tie at the top of each sleeve. Hair is pinned in buns with streamers of curls framing face. Flowers from Lavender Blue Floral in Des Moines, are a mix of blush garden roses, white vendela roses and eucalyptus greenery. The bride wears a medium sized crown of blush and white roses, which encircles her head.

Ashley poses with her court of beautiful bridesmaids, each holding a bouquet of blush and white roses and eucalyptus. Ashley asked for a crown of small flowers to encircle her locks of dark hair that curled and fell beautifully to frame her smiling face. Ashley and Mason put so much heart and passion into all the details of their day. The bridesmaids dresses were so in-trend with this season’s wedding styles and looked so light and comfy as they easily flowed and swayed in the gentle Iowa breeze this day.

The bride smiles as she sees the image of herself in the mirror with her freshly placed flower crown by Lavender Blue. Lots of bobby pins were needed to secure the crown in her beautiful thick locks of dark , curly hair.

Lynda, of Lavender Blue Floral is more than thrilled to get to place the flower crown on the bride’s head! So much time and heart goes into every single piece we create, and sharing that joy with the wedding couple is a priceless moment!

Bride Ashley stops to “smell the roses” on the beautiful wooded property at Country Lane Lodge. The rustic venue has so many outdoor areas that are perfect to tell the story of your wedding day and show the bride and groom in a natural, relaxed environment.

So many smiles and bursts of laughter were caught by photographer Brooke Cagle. It was obvious that they shared many memories of time spent together as Ashley dreamed of the day she would marry her prince. The families involved in this day were so fantastically gracious and appreciative of every detail that came together to make it extra special. As the florist, I typically don’t get the chance to share moments with the bride and groom like a planner or photographer might. Usually, the time that I arrive on the site to start placing flowers and hanging floral arches, is the time that everyone is scurrying to prepare for pictures to start. Every hair is being placed and pinned, every cheek is being highlighted, and each eyelash is being accentuated with care . For the brides who decide to do a “first look” photo, these moments are culminating in the set up of introducing the soon to be united couple. Hands of fathers are grabbed and eyes of grooms are quickly covered as the bride passes thru in her wedding gown and freshly coiffed curls.

Ashley and Mason start off on their marriage adventures today and their faces show their feelings about that. Surrounded by loving family and friends, they are off to start a brand new chapter of their lives, so full of hope and excitement. The attention to details by the bride and her family were clear evidence of their priorities. For them, it is all about faith, hope, and love, and we could not have been more blessed than to be a part of their celebration.
