Our bells are ringing over Mia + Scott’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty today! 

Shortly after Scott Lembke proposed to his darling bride Mia Deterding, their friends quickly coined them “The Lem-dingers” and their new mash up name seemed to be ringing with inspiration. We set out to create a “Lemdinger” of a day for our sweet duo with antiquated bells and rustic romantic touches among a gorgeous country setting. Swoon by Katie photographed the day beautifully.

Mia and Scott were wed under a birch, bloom and bell structure that we created in collaboration with Twigg Botanicals while guests waved ribbon wands of mini bells at the conclusion of their ceremony to celebrate.  

Following cocktail hour and lawn games, the dinner bell was wrung and invited guests to wash up at our water basin station and escort card display where each person was given their own tea towel and table assignment. Table names from Peanut Press perched in cut birch logs were named after various flowers with the description of their meaning such as Camellia, which in the language of flowers means “longing for you” and the California Poppy which means “Sweet Dreams” or the Lily of the Valley that means “you complete me.” 

Guests were favored with homemade strawberry jam by our bride with tied tags that read “the more the berrier.”  In exchange, guests left hand-written letters and memories to Mia and Scott that they tucked into old wood mail slots. After dinner, the party took to the dance floor, while some cuddled by the fire in warm handmade quilts by the bride. Hey There Cupcake tied it all together with a wafer flower cake in our colors of light coral, soft pink and periwinkle blue. It was an evening as comfortable and warm as the two of them, filled with the kindest of people and a love that we know will last a lifetime!
