Scott and Jessica's Wedding, July 2009

Beautiful bride
The color scheme for this wedding was so unusual. I LOVED it!!
Olive green, dark purple and a wine/berry color as an accent.
Jess wanted a very contemporary, modern look and I think we achieved that. Although I love those pastel color schemes, this one was SO much fun to work on. It was a challenge and so different, I enjoyed it and was very happy with the end result. Enjoy!!
Corsages and bouts. all ready to go!
Arrangements from the Groom's Dinner that we also used at the reception.
The dominant flowers for this wedding were green roses, mini-green hydrangeas, dark purple mini-callas, green orchids and fiddlehead ferns.
Super fun choices!!
Bridal bouquet.
White roses, white hydrangeas, white mini-callas, white stock, and white gardenias.

So soft and feminine, loved the textures we combined here.

Guest book Arrangement-Are those purple mini-callas stunning or what??
Piano Arrangement 
5 cylinders with flowers and 3 with candlelight
Flowers on the dance floor.  The live band was set up behind the piano, on the stage, so we had to come up with a better place to put these flowers.  I loved them in the curve of that piano.
Centerpieces.  So beautiful when they were glowing in low light.
We used 6 of these for centerpieces.
One of the hallways where the guestbook and gift tables were.  Don't you love that carpet?  This hotel was just recently remodeled and it is very contemporary.  I loved it.
Gorgeous green dendrobium orchids
Green roses, green mini-hydrangeas and white stock
Green roses, white roses, allium, and dark purple carnations
These hallways were brimming with people when the food stations were in full swing.  We ate at the fajita station, but there was also a pasta station and a mongolian station too.  Yummy!
Lots and lots of glowing candlelight when we came back for the reception
Although I was about to drop over, Travis and I re-grouped and made it to the reception.  Ava stayed with her grandparents and we stayed out until midnight, dancing!!  It was crazy :) Even though I was exhausted, we kept hanging on for one more song!  
A great way to wrap up a busy, busy week.
Cute bridesmaids
Father of the bride.  Love that bout. on that black tux!
Jess and her Dad

Fun Wedding Party
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Darling!  
(Yes, that is their last name!)

Jocelynn and Justin's Wedding, July 2009

Here are some pictures of the first wedding I did last week.  It was a beautiful and intimate backyard wedding, with a big, gorgeous reception afterwards.  As you can see, pink was the color of the night!  It was a pleasure to work on and I loved how everything turned out.
A view of the reception.
The head table.  
They rented all of my large cylinder inventory for this wedding, so there was lots and lots of candlelight.  It was a very romantic look.
I loved this candy table that they created.  Definitely all the rage right now in receptions.  It was very detailed and just beautiful.  It was hard for me not to sample it while I was working!
The family of the groom.  We go to church with them, but I had never met the groom and only talked to his beautiful bride over the phone.  It was fun to finally meet them!  
Grandfather's bout. and Grandmother's corsage.
Father's bout. and Mother's corsage.
Groomsmen's bouts and Groom's bout.
Bridesmaid's bouquet.
We chose lavender as the dominant color for the girls, as they were wearing all pink.
Bridal bouquet.
Jocelynn wanted a very colorful bouquet.  
I usually prefer an all-white bridal bouquet, but I  really did like this when it was all done.  
And as always, whatever the bride wants, she gets :)  
Because the wedding was in the backyard, overlooking a lake, we didn't need much.  Jocelynn wanted a very simple touch, so I wired white cherry blossoms to the arch.  
Simple greens for the aisle.  They also spread pink rose petals down the sides.  
Such a gorgeous look!
Hard to call that a backyard, huh?  
It was really quite breathtaking.
The bouquets and bags of rose petals.
I loved the bouquets with the bridesmaids' dresses.
I did 8 large arrangements like this one to scatter throughout the ballroom.
It's always important to have some height in a large room for balance and variety.
It was a perfect summer night.
The happy couple!  
Congratulations Justin and Jocelynn!
