I have such a wonderful treat in store for everyone today from the lovely husband and wife team, Erin Hearts Court. Courtney sent over a ton of beautiful images from Charles and Nadia’s wedding last week, and I’ve been itching ever since to upload these lovelies onto the blog. Their amazing event planner and florist, Meg, was also sweet enough to join us today and share a bit more information behind their wedding…

Nadia has a fun, romantic, vintage-inspired style.  We started with the floral print cloth napkins from Anthropologie to place in the middle of the guest tables and frame the centerpieces.  We chose a collection of vases in different sizes and shapes to give the centerpiece an eclectic feel and incorporated slices of fire wood for an organic element and white “granny doilies” to give the look a romantic edge.








For flowers, I used dinner plate dahlias, antique hydrangeas, spray roses, peonies and garden/cabbage roses.  To complete the centerpiece look, we turned kitchen glasses from Anthropologie into candles and picture frames from Anthropologie into table numbers.  Overall, we aimed to have an organic, vintage-inspired, romantic and eclectic decor scheme.





Nadia is of Russian heritage and Charles is of Venezuelan heritage so they wanted to include some elements of those cultures into their wedding decor.  The matryoshka doll favors were brought from Russia by Nadia’s family, the fiesta banners were bought from the Etsy store “Ay Mujer” and the tissue pom poms were bought from the Etsy store “Pom Pom Love.”








Oh, and the image above is what did it for me. Have you ever seen a more heartwarming photograph? It puts a huge smile on my face just looking at it…

Nadia or OnceWed-

First – what a breath taking wedding! Second: Was that fabric used under the centerpieces? I was curious about where she may have gotten that fabric or if they are scarves. Thank you :)

nadia | Reply

to ALEJANDRA – hi! the fabric squares are napkins from Anthropologie. took forever to find but was worth the search! i’m looking to sell most if you’re intersted!

Alejandra | Reply

Yes Nadia! Will you contact me at aamador07@gmail.com ? I would need anywhere from 8-12 (maximum 12). Just let me know how much you’re looking to sell them for :)

Dana | Reply

Nadia, any interest is selling your glassware/frames? I love your centerpieces, and is a perfect idea for our garden wedding. Contact me at dtomaszewski23@yahoo.com if you are interested. LOVE your wedding, so inspring!

Liz | Reply

These photographs are beautiful! And I just have to say her veil is also very pretty. I still don’t know what kind of veil I want, best to wait until I pick the dress! I’m struggling right now trying to decided whether we want a live Chicago Wedding Band to play at the reception or if we just want a DJ. Has anyone had a live band at their wedding? If so, what was that like? Better than just a DJ?

Tara @ Pacific Wedding Guide | Reply

That tree dripping with lights is so so beautiful! What a lovely reception!

Dana | Reply

Nadia your wedding is beautiful and genuine,I am so inspired! I love the glassware you used for centerpiece. Are you looking to sell these pieces?
