Wednesday Wedding Do’s! — Side Table Scape

Awwwww, ❤

Brittany Lauren Photography

Either I’m slowing down or time is speeding up. Wednesday just keeps coming faster and faster each week!

This week’s Wednesday Wedding Do is from Jasmine Star’s creativeLIVE inspiration shoot I attended a couple of months ago. I’m feeling super nostalgic and missing all my friends so I thought I would highlight my trip again and take a little walk down memory lane. Plus, these side table scape’s are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Every bride should do this even if it is just for the wedding party table! Seriously…just do it and then watch everyone ogle and awe over them.

To view the table in all it’s glory check out Jasmine’s Blog post about it: here
Or the feature it received on Grey Likes Weddings: here

Not knowing a thing about the company, I did some digging and found that the history of Detmer Woolens is a pretty tragic tale, which is perhaps why so little about the company is still known. Detmer Woolens was an NYC textile business founded in 1985 by Ohio native Julian Francis Detmer. Through it’s history, the company met with a series of misfortunes including an unfortunate involvement in the notorious fire that destroyed NYC’s Parker Building, and being accused of what was essentially marketing fraud. Despite all this, the company and family saw a good deal of success, until the founder died in 1958. In his memory, Detmer left only a plot of gardens, Detmer Nurseries, near his home in Tarrytown, New York…
