Maren and Steve pulled together one of those stylish weddings that most brides dream of. Their ceremony and reception were held in a fairytale estate with beautiful grounds. So here’s a little inspiration from their special day.

Part 1- The Special Touches

First off, pinks were the order of the day- from mauve to pastel- subtle shades and hues of luscious pink. More on the flowers in a later post (also pretty in pink).

The full compliment of paper products- invitation, save the dates, name cards and more.

Maren’s shoes with a hint of turquoise. This was a beautiful accent color to the pinks, and only used in two spots. Her something blue.


Her purse also with turquoise. She added the little hummingbird pin, a nice touch of whimsy.

Now check out their venue. The Glen Manor House is nothing short of stunning.

Loving the period details throughout, reminiscent of a French country estate.

The back patio. Maren and Steve bought all of the lounge furniture and pillows to ensure it would have just the feel they were going for.
