Today’s wedding is so drop-dead gorgeous! From Ilana’s amazing bouquet (and we do mean amazing) to the tin can centerpieces wrapped with lace, we just love everything about it! And the photography by Lizelle Lotter? Absolutely perfect.

We love how Ilana wore her hair in a casual side-swept ponytail. So cute!

Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Isn’t that bouquet stunning? We especially adore the giant protea.

The guys wore fabric hearts instead of traditional boutonnieres, and they all had different colored ties to coordinate.

We know that a lot of you are planning indoor weddings. This room is a perfect example of how an indoor reception can be just as beautiful as an outdoor one–if not more so! The bunting draped across the ceiling adds so much.

Tin cans wrapped with lace are inexpensive and surprisingly chic vases!

What a beautiful couple, beautiful wedding, and beautiful photography! Congrats to Giele and Ilana.

    I think I just found my inspiration for my own floral arrangements! Are those in fact, grey billy buttons or craspedia? I have never seen that color and I LOVE it. Anyone have any ideas on what those are and where I can get my hands on some?

      Hi Maren! The grey flowers are called silver brunia.
