Wedding Blessings....June...Together...like Peaches and Cream!

Your Inspiration... Welcoming summer..the warmth of the sun and calm colors....
The June birthstone is the pearl symbolizing love, success and happiness.
June's flower is the Rose Honeysuckle symbolizing generosity.

The month of June is the most popular month out of the year to host a wedding. Summer can be very warm right at the beginning of the June month depending on your area of the country. If planning an outdoor wedding, it may be best to host the reception inside the venue chosen. For our June wedding, we are selecting a soft shade of peach, accented with sage green and ivory.

 Four our wedding party  gowns, we are accenting the bride with soft sage....flower girls accenting both colors...
The venue for our June wedding selected is The Forth Worth Botanical Garden venue. What more romantic image does a botanical garden convey? It is breathtakingly beautiful, fragrant and peaceful.There are a variety of garden areas to choose from, among them are The  Fuller Garden which is a secluded area featuring a stone gazebo and a waterfall with a grassy area for guests. The Oval Rose Garden where you may surround yourself with roses in a quiet area just off the North Vista, the Lower Rose Garden containing a sparkling fountain and the Reflecting Pool also graces this area and the Fragrance Garden, an intimate area with a small fountain and overhanging trees, suitable for wedding parties with fewer than 30 guests.

For your reception, a summer menu would include...
A round table with a fruit and bread centerpiece displaying seasonal fruit to include cantaloupe, honeydew and pineapple, displayed with grapes, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, mango, papaya and other fruit and herbs and the best of European cheeses both soft and hard ripened chosen from the following: Cornilly, Aged Gouda, Manchego, Livarot Petit, Epoisses, Gorgonzola Dolce, Blue d’Auvergne, Brin d’Amour,Camembert Reaux, Chevrot, Munster, Pie d’Angloys, Pont l’Eveque, Reblochon, Selles Sur-Cher, Vacherin, Morbier, Stilton, Tomme de Savoie or P’Tit Basque served with breads and crackers garnished with berries.
