Now that this has been published on Style Me Pretty, I’m super excited to finally share part 1 of Caitlin and Mike’s wedding which was held at The Farmer’s Museum in NY!
Caitlin was kind enough to share her wedding inspiration board with me, which you may remember seeing earlier this year, and was aiming for a wedding full of rustic elegance with a touch of vintage throughout. The overall design was done by Jessica of Jessica’s Country Flowers and she came up with some amazing design elements and beautiful floral arrangements to complement the venue and Caitlin’s vision! (Here’s a peek at what Jessica created)
When I saw Caitlin’s inspiration board there were so many ideas and cookie designs that came to mind. However, after hearing more about what Jessica was planning I settled on doing 2 different cookie designs. The first was inspired by vintage shadowboxes filled with dried flowers.
I wanted them to be elaborate and overflowing with flowers so I made a variety of different sugar flowers to go on each cookie.
I chose a creamy ivory as the background color and added leaves and ferns.
I really wanted to balance the elaborate floral cookies with something pretty and simple so I chose periwinkle circles and added a delicate border and monogram to match Caitlin and Mike’s invitation font.
I loved how the two designs worked together! There was just something so sweet about Caitlin’s colors and the mix of elaborate with simple … a perfect combination of rustic, elegant, and vintage!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Caitlin and Mike’s wedding…a little behind the scenes at what went into their vintage sweets display!
