Our Mid-Century Urban Garden Party Wedding – PT 1

Weddings & Events

Hi friends, our wedding has just been published on Style Me Pretty! I don’t know what girl doesn’t dream about being on SMP, I’m so beyond thankful and appreciative that I was a blogger bride and that our wedding is featured. With that being said, it’s full of various DIY projects, budget ideas, and that mid-century modern vibe that I dream about.

We got married in Wilmington, North Carolina and stayed a beautiful beach house in Wrightsville Beach. The entire week was so great (stressful, but great). Since it was a small destination wedding we had to do a lot of the stuff while in NC that week. But since we only had 32 guests we were able to really dig into the details for the day! You can see more photos here, and I’ll be sharing another post of our wedding too (with more details)! 
Angela and Kiley-90Not only that, but I’m a big DIY girl..so it was inevitable I would pull that into our wedding. From my pre-owned wedding dress, DIY wholesale flowers from FloweMuse, custom made gold urchins, leaves for centerpieces, and banana bread for wedding cake. Wherever I was able to budget I did it so I could splurge elsewhere. We got married at The Atrium by Ligon Flynn and really had a space that was beautiful on it’s own, it had the perfect urban garden party feel. With the string lights, tons of candles, laughter, and delicious food I really couldn’t have asked for a better day!

    I LOVE the leaves as centerpieces. They are so clean and simple, but such a great pop of beautiful color. You posted where you got your wholesale flowers and I was wondering if your leaves are from there as well? Or, can I ask, are they fake? They definitely look real, but I feel like it is easy to make fake leaves and succulents look real (sometimes). I am getting married in the spring. My colors are black, white, and gold, and I only want real color coming from plants/flowers.

      HI there, the leaves/greenery are from Salt Harbor Designs (so real) I believe some of them came right from The Atrium where we got married. So, depending on where you live you can probably do the same thing with big greenery. And yes, I have a lot of fake greens in my house (leaves/succulents/plants) and they look pretty real!

    This is so beautiful! What a wonderful way to spend time with those you love…renting a house together. Im curious when you hosting a large crowd how you split ip meals so you arent in the kitchen all day and can enjoy your guests. Any tips? I think I may just use your wedding as inspiration for my own. Congrats to the happy couple!

    • Angela S says:

      Thank you so much Elizabeth! The week of the wedding their was only 3 couples (including us) staying at a small beach house, so we just went shopping at costco and they just threw in some money. For the wedding, all guest arrived the day before (so before the rehearsal), we had snacks at the house, but then just had the rehearsal dinner. The morning of the wedding a couple bridesmaid just made a few pans of egg bake, and then just leftovers to snack on until the wedding!
