Local Driftwood Centerpieces Take Center Stage

July 20, 2017

Sharon and Patrick’s Earth Day wedding is a nature lover’s dream. With petal pinks, gorgeous greens, and the hints of nature all throughout (we’re talking driftwood archway + centerpieces!) these local blooms from Little Miss Lovely were certainly a VIP at this wedding–all perfectly captured by Nicole Babcock Photography!

From Ami of Little Miss Lovely: When Sharon & Patrick planned their wedding on Earth Day, they made sure nature was infused in many elements of their special day. From tiny potted succulents used as place cards and guest favors to driftwood collected locally and used to create a ceremony archway, Mother Nature’s importance was prominent. 

Sharon and Patrick used elements like driftwood, greenery, salt grass fronds, succulents and florals to bring a natural feel to their wedding at The Cove at Mumford’s Landing. The Cove overlooks the bay and the Ocean City skyline. Dark grey clouds and scattered showers chased the wedding ceremony indoors, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of those in attendance. The soft pink, white, and mint green color scheme made the reception space feel light and airy in contrast to the dark, heavy skies outside.

Carefully placed inside of the bride’s bouquet and all of the boutonnieres were small succulents. Months after the wedding, the couple can still enjoy those plants as they grow in their garden at home. April on the Eastern Shore is early peony season. Sharon’s favorite flowers are dahlias and peonies. Both of her favorite flowers were grown locally and incorporated into the wedding florals. Some other flowers used to bring the bride’s vision to life were O’hara garden roses, dusty miller, a mixture of eucalyptus varieties, white hydrangea, and ranunculus. 

The wedding theme was described as “Rustic Beach”. Driftwood pieces were used as centerpieces on each table. Greenery and florals climbed off of the driftwood and cascaded onto the reception tables. Vases covered in smaller driftwood pieces centered other tables. Candles placed inside votive holders wrapped in mint and gold paper added a touch of glamour to each guest table. A mobile made of tealy blue sea glass hung over the cake display.
