Nat­u­ral Beauty

Martha Stewart Weddings - - STYLE -

For a rus­tic cer­e­mony arch that looks as if it sprouted up on its own, Love starts with a sim­ple wooden frame and adds arm­fuls of grasses, ferns, heuchera, lamb’s ear, dahlias, lisianthus, rud­beckia, hy­drangeas, clema­tis, and to­mato vines. Build­ing a nat­u­rally asym­met­ri­cal look, she places pot­ted green­ery along the ground to serve as a foun­da­tion, then se­cures other flow­ers and fo­liage to the arch with a bit of wire. “I’m sort of the queen of ‘or­ganic’ in­stal­la­tions,” she says, “so I try to keep the me­chan­ics min­i­mal.” Need a lit­tle ex­tra at­mos­phere? Throw in a flock of fine-feath­ered ducks.
