Real Wedding : Romantic and Shabby Chic with Peonies

Today's gorgeous shabby chic Real Wedding comes to us from Ariel Yve Design in California and was photographed by Raya Photography. The wedding took place at the Rockwood Women's Club with the main colors being ivory, pale pink and grey with bits of green. The bride's gown was designed by Melissa Sweet. And, wait until you see the chandeliers hanging from the trees . . . so romantic.

I LOVE this ring shot! And, it's on a Ring Bearer Bowl™ from Paloma's Nest.

Aren't the bridemaids peony bouquets gorgeous? The perfect shabby chic flower, I think.

Centerpieces consisted of hydrangeas, peonies, garden roses, viburnum and tulips. They were all arranged in a variety of "vintage" silver and crystal containers.

I have to say, I really do love the idea of ending the wedding with a sweet treat for your guests to take home. For this wedding, it's a cookie bar. It's such a lovely and unexpected surprise for your guests.

Thank you so much Ariel for sharing your beautifully shabby chic wedding with my readers today. To see more from Ariel Yve Design, please visit her web site. Her gallery photos are simply stunning.
