As the artist and owner of a candle and witchcraft supply store, Lily had a specific vision for her and Joe's October wedding which included some Pagan elements. When her florist went out of business just before the wedding, Lily decided to do all her own decor. She reached out to a flower wholesaler and created all of her own decor, incorporating her personal collection of skulls and cauldrons. She created so many bouquets, centerpieces, wedding aisle decoration, that it took five cars to get them all to the venue!
Here's a little more from Lily about the day…
“Our inspiration was to stay true to ourselves. We had pictures from our engagement shoot framed and hung, we made sure to have elements of the cats around since they couldn't be with us. I arranged all of our decor and flowers — I have some prior experience with floral arrangements and I went to college for Design & Merchandising. I was able to source from some wholesalers as well as local farms to get all the different types of stems I wanted. Honestly, I couldn't have been happier with our arrangements.”
Keep an eye out for the candles with glittery sigils, a flower petal circle to get married in, and the besom they jumped over.
