Emily Simms of The Bachelor Marries
Emily and Pierre have similar taste, so when it came to planning he trusted her in all the details. Fortunate, as it only took less than eight months for her to secure an A-list team of vendors to create a magical and unforgettable day to celebrate. But, Emily did all the planning beginning with scouring the internet and Pinterest for her inspiration. The style at the reception unfolded with an antique feel. Simple garlands were used as accents down the center of the long tables, arrangements around the welcome sign, seating chart, bar and wedding cake. Working with Foxy Evergreen, she wanted to go beyond the standard flowers - you can imagine her disdain for the average rose. Being quite specific that when Emily Simms of The Bachelor marries no roses will be handed out or seen. As apposed to this day. Instead, she went with phalaenopsis orchids in a magenta color. She also did not want floral native to Australia. All whites, soft pinks, deep pinks and lots of greenery were used in a cascading effect. The result was pure perfection. And hands down to her as with the launch of her own makeup, she of course did her own.
