Two Fabulous Weddings this weekend !!

Well, I must say, we do have the opportunity to create flowers for some of the area's most beautiful brides !!

Kelly and I had two wonderful weddings this past weekend. She was over near the Douglas Loop and I was at Garden Court. I do promise to have some photos up this week. Kelly was definitely able to snap more shots than I. She gave me a sneak peak late Saturday. We had alot more decor to set up which cut into our photo time.

Kelly's bride, Sara, went for a traditional romantic wedding.. she carried a hand tied bouquet of imported English and Equadoran roses, blue and white hydrangea and delphinium accent. Her attendant's carried mixed English garden bouquets of plum mini calla lily, lavender hydrangea, blue delphinium, with some additional blossoms and variegated tree ivy and hosta foliage. Her church decor included large traditional arrangements of garden flowers to compliment the bouquets with single white lilies on the pews. She had complimentary styles at the reception for her buffet and guest's tables. A variety of blossoms adorned the cake. It looked amazing and Kelly said Sara was delighted with everything.

As for my wedding at Garden Court... Nicole our bride, opted for a more contemporary presentation. Her bouquet consisted of creme cymbidium orchids with raspberry roses and purple lisianthus as the accent. Studded throughout her bouquet were oversized pearls with crystal studs in the center. Her attendants carried contemporary hand tied bouquets of Green cymbidium orchids, cranberry dahlia, raspberry and orange roses, kangaroo paw and raspberry stock with a yellow craspedia accent.

Her reception consisted of various arrangements on all the guest's tables. The bride's and bridal party's tables enjoyed elevated arrangements of assorted orchids, roses, trumpet vine, dahlia, stock and other florwes as accent colors. The 'Hundley Hall' was draped with assorted fabrics to accent the party's colors. Also installed just for Nicole's event, were illuminated fountains and reflective glass walls which totally enhanced the atmosphere of the room. She selected a luscious chocolate stacked square cake. Her cake topper was a special gift from her father, a metal craftsman. He designed for her the monogram of her new last name. It was a lovely and precious gift.

We will post photos from both of these weddings. I will also post some photos from another wedding we had a few weeks ago.

Thanks for visiting.

Speaking as the photographer at Nicole's wedding: you did a wonderful job! It was gorgeous. Your flowers were the first thing that caught my eye and I was enamored with their color and the thoughtfulness of the arrangement.
