Danielle and Brett's Wedding Saturday June 12, 2010

Today's wedding was so much fun! I met Danielle awhile ago and she and her mom were awesome to work with! It's so nice to work with people you can end up truly becoming good friends with! Danielle's mom Sally was probably holding Ethan while we set up this wedding or took pictures after set up! It felt like family since our neighbors were there and one of them was officiant! The photographer was even the girlfriend of my neighbor, it was just very cool to see so many people you know and not expect to see them all together. It was great! I can't wait to see the pictures of the the bouquets with the dresses. Everything was gorgeous and everyone was super happy! Then I found out that Danielle and Brett live about 3 blocks away, so I know we will definitely see each other on a normal basis!

I loved her colors! Lavender, coral, and orange! We draped lavender chiffon fabric over the purgola at Running Deer and hung crystals of different heights. The fabric looked gorgeous flowing in the wind, which made the day feel great since it was pretty hot.

Her flowers were coral Movie Star roses, orange dahlias, orange ranunculus, Ocean Song roses, and lavender sweet peas. I added hanging green amaranthus, coral gerberas, and also some warmer Meritime lavender roses for depth.

Movie Star roses were tied to the chairs with a soft lavender double face satin ribbon.

The cake smelled so good! Wayne from Century did a fabulous job and I know it tasted awesome too, because he made my wedding cake almost 6 years ago (wow, that went fast). I LOVED these colors!!!

The card table arrangement was so much fun! I used amaranthus, dahlias, roses, gerberas, eremurus, peonies, sweet peas, and ranunculus. I also suspended 3 Ocean Song roses with lavender wire. So you have 3 choices when it comes to using single blooms: submerged, suspended, or floating. It's always fun to mix it up!

Congratulations guys! I hope you had a fabulous day, as I am sure you did! Ps. Thanks for taking Ethan for a bit Sally! I think he loves you too!

Sneak Peak At Kristie's Wedding This August

I am so excited about these colors! Kristie's wedding is this August and she came in this week to see samples. I'm posting this for her and her mom to look back for later on, but also because I am doing a lot of weddings in this color scheme this year and next. The dark violet sweet peas, lisianthus, and hydrangeas are combined with lime, fresh green, and white flowers. The cube above has violet water with all the shades of purple and green.

Kristie's bouquet will be like the one above with more lime added. The bridesmaids are wearing an "obnoxiously bright purple" so we did a lot of lime and white with only the dress fabric over the stems. These will pop against the dresses perfectly!

This centerpiece sample is designed in a silver bowl with a hint of pale yellow to contrast against the shades of purple and compliment the lime.
