from day one i knew we had to use succulents in our wedding. what's more "modern organic" than succulents? plus they are native to the desert so it was a nice ode to our love of Palm Springs as well.
topher and i knew what we wanted for the centerpieces and felt like we could do the planting ourselves. after a few rounds of unsuccessful test centerpieces (yes, we somehow managed to kill the unkillable), we finally got it down to an art. we found the grey vessels at ikea (i heart you ikea!) and dealt directly with the nursery buyer at Home Depot to custom order our favorite types of succulents. oh, and the AMAZING table numbers are from the heavenly Anthopologie. swoooooon.
two weekends before the big day, our friends offered up their home as ground zero for Project Succulent. I can't even imagine what a colossal mess it would have been in our apartment! Thank you Mick and Seema! A potentially tedious project turned into a fun day filled with sunshine, a few bottles of Pacifico and lots of dirt!
we were incredibly happy with how they turned out and love that our friends took them with them and gave them a home after the wedding! we've got ours sitting on the coffee table - i smile everytime i look at it.
i'll be sharing the lovely bouquets, bouts and other floral masterpieces created by our florist/coordinator Meg @ La Partie Events in upcoming posts...
