Marcy's Wedding at The Chelsea in Atlantic City

Yesterday we went to Atlantic City to The Chelsea Hotel, and created a really pretty beach wedding for Marcy, a bride from Virginia whom I never met and only spoke on the phone with a few times. Kristin, from Bel Momento, and I work together a lot and this was a fun, destination wedding with a lot of creative freedom. Marcy's wedding was so pretty and we did red, purple, plum, and lavender. Her centerpieces were made with hydrangeas, cockscomb, roses, orchids, dahlias, scabiosa, and lots of other flowers.
The cake topper was made with mini callas, orchids, roses, fiddles and some other varieties.
We had a lot of freedom as far as what flowers to use. I just went with personal favorites and went from there.
We hung flowers from the curly willow and also from ribbons. I wanted to capture the "ocean breeze" as much as I could, and hanging flowers and ribbons in the wind is a great way to do it!
The family seemed very nice and everyone was really excited. Congratulations to you both! I hope you both have a beautiful time visiting in NJ and a wonderful life together!

Lauren's Wedding on Friday, August 13, 2010 at Lucien's Manor

Lauren's Wedding on Friday was GORGEOUS!!! We decorated Pitman UMC, which has AWESOME natural light, with these 2 large urns filled with hybrid delphinium, curly willow, roses, hydrangeas, and gerberas. The aisle were decorated with white hydrangeas and we draped long white tulle and tiffany blue satin ribbons with long crystals. These gave a hint of what was to come for the reception!
We decorated the Venetian Ballroom at Lucien's Manor with these gorgeous centerpieces! All of the tables were high glass pilsner vases filled with aqua gems and a tiffany blue LED light and I know these looked amazing once the sun went down!!! We draped lots of crystals from the top of the flowers and designed the top of the vases with hydrangeas, roses, gerberas, dahlias, freesias, and delphiniums. Crystals sprinkled on the mirrors finished the look and this room looked awesome when we walked out! Even the owner of Lucien's Manor was showing another couple the room and they were all really impressed!

Sara's Wedding at Bellevue State Park August 7, 2010

Sara's flowers were so pretty! Her colors were white and cobalt, so we did some contrasting gold and purple with bright blue hydrangeas. White cymbidium orchids broke up the color and also made a great flower for the groom to wear!
The ceremony took place at the Friends Meeting House at Bellevue State Park in Wilmington, Delaware. It was really close by and looked like a great place to visit with the baby on a sunny weekend! Sara wanted something really simple for the ceremony. Since there was a lot of yellow light coming in from the stained glass windows, the flowers didn't compete with anything in the room, but helped reflect the yellow. A simple garland with greenery and white dendrobium orchids draped the front railing and 2 cylinders with floating candles made up a memorial table. Thanks so much and congratulations Sara! I loved working with you and your mom!

Maggie and Richard's Wedding on July 31, 2010 in Cape May

Mt. Vernon Beach is a great spot for an intimate wedding!
Gorgeous Antique Amnesia Roses are still an awesome choice for bride's who like a warm lavender!
 Thank you guys so much for letting us watch you tie the knot! Your wedding was beautiful! The release of the doves was super cool and you guys looked so happy together! Congratulations!
