Aqua and Cobalt: Lindsay and Chris's Cape May Wedding at The Grand Hotel

I am beach lover so any chance to "work" at the shore is a chance to relax, even
 if I am "working". I met Lindsay years ago, as she is one of my neighbors in the town of Elmer 
and her mom has an amazing little sign company that we love to use. So I was thrilled when 
they approached me about doing their flowers for their Cape May wedding! Lindsay and Chris 
chose to incorporate different blues into the wedding, so they chose a cobalt blue for the
 bridesmaid's dresses and also the men's ties. I loved her bright bouquet of aqua dendrobium orchids and white phaelenopsis orchids. All of these gorgeous photos are by the amazing Tami Melissa Photography!

Lindsay looks stunning and her bouquet turned out awesome!


Her bouquet was created with dark purple hydrangeas as a base, then 
designed  with massed blue dendrobium orchids. The white phaelenopsis 
orchids soften the color.


I love these dresses! Lindsay's bridesmaids carried bright
 white bouquets of roses, stock, and mini callas.


Lindsay's bridesmaid Shannon, pictured here, was also one of my
brides. She and Lindsay's brother had a gorgeous Cape May wedding too!!!

Chris wore a blue orchid, while the men wore white mini callas.


I love Cape May and the water looks amazing here.

The ceremony and reception took place at The Grand Hotel in Cape May. Lindsay 
and Chris had a rooftop ceremony overlooking the ocean and it was gorgeous. We decorated
 the space with arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, and orchids. These tall silver pedestals
are available to rent from Savannah's Garden.

The chairs were lined with more blue orchids.

The centerpieces were so pretty. We created tall arrangements with white
hydrangeas, blue dendrobium orchids, white Tibet roses, and a ton of white
phaelenopsis orchids. Adding blue orchids into our rented pilsner vases 
brought the blue down to the linen, were more blue orchids were sprinkled.

The cake was decorated with more blue orchids and it looked super pretty. I was so happy 
to be part of your wedding day! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your family's day for a 
second time!!! Congratulations again!!!

Pearls and Peonies: Mallory and TJ's Wedding at Running Deer Golf Club

 I was in love with this wedding from the very start. A classic ivory and blush wedding is always a great choice and Mallory was so awesome to work with! All of these gorgeous photos by Tami Melissa Photography. Enjoy!!!

 I wrapped her bouquet with a strand of ivory pearls and it looked perfect.

 Mallory's bridal bouquet was created with hydrangeas,
 peonies, spray roses, mini callas, and roses.

 The bridesmaids carried bouquets with more blush and a pop of ivory.

 I really love the navy dresses with the ivory and blush, you cannot go wrong!

 Mallory looked stunning. Her hair and makeup were done by Jessica from 

 I absolutely LOVE this bouquet!

 The ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Running Deer Golf 
Club, in Pittsgrove, NJ. This venue is one of my absolute favorite 
places, and it's where my wedding was!

 We created a spray of pink roses, stock, hydrangeas, ruscus, and more pearls.

 The chairs were adorned with a fluffy, open blush peony.

They had the most gorgeous day for a wedding!

 We used the venue's provided cylinders for the centerpieces and added
 a clean bunch of fresh magnolia leaves with a faux magnolia bloom and 
tied it together with a pearl garland.

 The cake was to die for! Apron Strings Dessert Boutique once again did a gorgeous job. 
We added some open peonies to the cake for a pop of color and to add some texture. 
LOVED IT! These girls are amazing!

 Such a fun spring wedding that turned out gorgeous! Congratulations guys!!!
