Lauren and Donal’s Rupert on Rupert wedding is a flower lover’s dream! Featuring show-stopping florals in a fresh and vibrant color palette, florist Salt Flower showcased unique arrangements that perfectly complemented their warehouse restaurant venue’s lush botanical decor and tropical industrial vibe.
While the plant-filled Conservatory provided a breathtaking backdrop for their ceremony, the big and bold floral installation at the altar was the statement piece. For the reception that followed, long-stemmed blooms in clear vases softened the urban yet quirky aesthetic of the Main Hall.
A gorgeous celebration like this calls for equally stunning attire. The bride’s pearl-detailed wedding dress hit all the right fashion notes, while the groom went for a timeless look with a classic suit and pink tie. If you’re in search of wedding inspo where the florals take centerstage, then look no further. Scroll through and swoon over these beautiful details as captured by Kyra Boyer.

Personalizing Their Wedding By Writing Their Vows And Weaving Their Love Story Into The Ceremony
The ceremony, officiated by Wendy Does Weddings, was amazing. We wrote our own vows, Wendy was great at weaving in our personal narrative, and our ceremony felt like it perfectly captured the feeling we wanted. It was full of laughter and joy. She made it feel like she’d known us forever and wasn’t just reading off a script about a pair of strangers.
Their Wedding Photographer Made Them Feel Confident And Relaxed In Front Of The Camera
Coming from two people who don’t like taking photos of themselves, the process of finding a photographer was daunting. We spent a lot of time researching to find someone that fits our style. We found Kyra and knew we had made the right choice because she was amazing! She provided the perfect amount of direction while keeping the process natural and not feeling awkward. We enjoyed our time with her, and she was fantastic at finding candid moments to capture throughout the night.
Using Spreadsheets To Stay On Top Of Planning Their Wedding
Our advice for couples who just started their wedding journey is to have a good excel spreadsheet to track costs and planning and to stay organized so you can have your pick of vendors. It really matters to get the right support on your big day so you can enjoy it without the stress.
Proud Of Their Rupert on Rupert Wedding Vibe
We wanted the wedding to feel like “us,” and we followed our intuition. We think it’s important to stay true to yourselves and not try to please others. We’re so proud that the overall vibe matched what we envisioned and how much people enjoyed themselves.
