Lace and Lavender: A Perfectly Private Estate Wedding

For Sarah and William, meeting and getting to know each other seemed as easy and natural as a lakeside breeze. Sarah explains, “My husband and I met at a gathering I had over the summer of 2013. His cousin, who was my roommate, invited him to come up to our lake house one evening. From there, we just continued to hang out and got to know each other.” William later popped the question on what would be a life changing trip for them both to Quebec City, Canada.


The pair had a pretty solid idea of what they wanted: to be married exactly a year from when they got engaged, great food, drinks and an amazing band to match. The couple proceeded to book Merry Me Events on which they relied on heavily for everything from inspiration to execution.

The dress

Sarah found her way to “the one” by trying on one of every type of dress they had at Blushing Bride in Elkhart, Indiana. She ultimately fell in love with a strapless beauty by designer Sophia Tolli.

The Florals

Purple has always been the color Sarah wanted for her wedding. Her palette blossomed into one that included multiple shades, with a lighter, more summer-inspired hue selected for the bridesmaids’ dresses. The groom and groomsmen wore gray, the perfect complement. The mesmerizing florals included purpleberry roses, lavender cool water roses, Sweet William, deep plum mini calla lilies, grape purple Anemone, Lavender Lisianthus and lavender stock.


The Venue

The venue location was also an easy pick. The private, Bristol, Indiana residence where the couple held there gorgeous nuptials was also the very place where William grew up and always envisioned himself getting married.

Special Touches

Sarah says, “The thing that made my wedding day special to me was probably all of the hard work and effort Merry Me Events went through to make this day as special as it was. They really went above and beyond for our day. Of course, having all of our family and friends there to share our dream wedding with us was very special. We had a lot of different things going on throughout the entire day, and everything had its special time to shine. Our photographer, Katie Whitcomb, couldn’t have captured our wedding day any better than she did. We are lucky enough to get to look back on all of these special moments and relive our night.”
