This just might be the sweetest way we’ve ever seen a bride ask her best girlfriends to be in her wedding! Angela Margolis and Erin Sprinkel of Sterling Social orchestrated the perfect boho-chic ladies picnic in Orange County’s O’Neill Regional Park. The gorgeous floral centerpieces designed by JL Designs and the loveliest personalized place settings made by Pitbulls and Posies make us wish we could pull up a pillow and join in the festivities.
Erin and Angela give us all the details, “A twist on the casual afternoon picnic, the Bride invited eight of her closest friends to the park with the intention of intimately asking them to be a part of her wedding. Set beneath a large shaded tree, a residential oasis of tufted furnishings, quilted blankets, floor pillows and ottomans in vibrant colors and mixed prints, created a cozy environment for lunch. A low distressed wood dining table was sweetly set with petite collections of floral and eclectic accents. “
“Each personalized place setting was adorned with botanical-inspired china, blush glassware, gold flatware, and place card names made of laser-cut wood. ”
Guests love when thought has been put into their attendance. Even with a small gathering, include personalized seating at the dining table. This doesn’t have to be traditional place cards, so have fun with writing guest’s names on decorative objects, glassware or even edible pieces.” – Erin Sprinkel & Angela Margolis
“As the girls spent the afternoon eating mini desserts and toasting with pink champagne, the sentimental moments began to unfold. Charming hand-made wooden boxes were presented to each girl with the words ‘I Choose You’ inscribed on the outside. Filled with meaningful mementos and whimsical bridesmaid dress swatches, each bridesmaid-to-be was given a heartfelt note from the bride asking them to stand by her side on the wedding day.”
“In celebration, the girls set off on a playful adventure throughout the park riding vintage Schwinn’s, carrying oversized balloons with tassels, and dancing in the rain that showered them in the late afternoon.”
I don’t know about you, but after seeing all the joyful and heartfelt moments these ladies shared, I’m ready to call up all my close girlfriends and plan a fun-filled picnic asap! Sanctuary Seekers – what does your perfect picnic include?
