Flower petals are key in terms of wedding tradition and nothing beats the enchantment they can cast. If you feel like your outdoor wedding space is missing just a little something extra, connect the dots by tossing some loose petals about! You can blend several colors to create a cohesive and romantic theme or stick with one color & go wild with your inner flower child!

FROM THE BRIDE: There has always been a special place in both of our hearts for summertime in Nebraska. Hot summer days are typically accompanied by comfortable evenings. Conversely, rain and thunderstorms can roll in at the blink of an eye. For our special day in June we decided to take our chances with an outdoor, tented wedding. We were so happy with our venue. We tried to keep things tucked away in the country, and found an amazing property with room for our guests to roam and beautiful landscapes. As the sun set on our venue we felt that “summer night in the backyard” kind of vibe. This was a really special feeling for us because we knew that this is the type of environment that our family and friends felt most comfortable with as well. I think we would both say, hands-down, that our most memorable part of the day was seeing each other for the first time. Cliché, I know, but walking up behind Brady and tapping him on the shoulder and watching his reaction when he saw me in my wedding dress totally put me at ease and calmed all the anxious jitters and butterflies in my stomach. From that point on, I knew no matter what happened, this was going to be the best day of my life.
