5 Secrets to More Color at Home

Larissa + Tony’s Offbeat Garden Inspired Wedding


Larissa and Tony’s wedding may have been in September (see those to die for dahlias?!), but the floral inspired and herb infused details have me feeling springy! This is a non-traditional, offbeat wedding through and through. From the groomsmen’s hidden super hero tribute to the throwback noise makers and finally the atypical reception dinner (of my dreams), DIY weddings like this catch my eye because I know the couple just made it about them. And fun, of course. My favorite detail has to be the vintage Vera Neumann napkins Larissa collected for every place setting. It may be one of my favorite little details to date in fact. I love a cohesive appearance but, when you look closer, you see a perfectly unique touch for each and every guest. Now, I’ll let Figlewicz Photography’s photos do the rest of the talking…

I’m so in love with the noisemaker idea as opposed to rice, bubbles or other traditional celebratory items! What do you think!?

I love the use of herbs in these DIY centerpieces. As a bonus to their beauty, the plants were left in their pots so guests could take them home at the end of the night. Nothing was wasted there! And, did I tell you or did I tell you!? Those napkins are beyond fantastic!

If you have In-N-Out for dinner at your wedding, you are most certainly a winner in my book. A perfect end to an awesomely offbeat night!
