Church Basement wedding florals

Ashley Fox Designs created a bouquet that is elegant, easy to carry and beautiful at every angle, yet different at every angle as well. Whether it is right side up or upside down, the bouquet is stunning. The flowers used are relaxed and look like they were pulled from the garden with pops of color from ranunculus, ever a favorite on the flower scene. Using grass seed heads to complete the bouquet makes it feel like it could have come from a Minnesota prairie adding to this bouquet’s sense of place.


Guest Book Alternative & Foodie Favors {Hearten Magazine Feature}

Hopefully you have already seen the IWA’s new online magazine, Hearten. For our inaugural issue, we brought a new twist to the church basement wedding reception, complete with a recipe card guest book & wedding favor combo that is too good to pass up.

The paper was all custom designed and printed by Armato Design & Press – from the MN-inspired invitations, to the food tags, to the recipe cards. Instead of a traditional guest book, a vintage recipe box is used to hold guests’ thoughts and hopes for the couple written on recipe cards. Guests also receive recipe cards as a favor. Both are inspired by motifs on the recipe box and the vintage Pyrex used on the buffet table.
