So this is the post all of our winter brides have been waiting for! I just got the digital prints hot off the press from Tina and couldn’t wait another day to share them with you! Thank you Tina for ALL of the great photos from Sarah’s January wedding, you amaze me more and more with each wedding (or Lee photo shoot!). For those of you who don’t know who this beautiful bride is, she is my best friend and partner in crime, Sarah. I felt honored to design the flowers for her wedding day (and serve as her Matron of Honor!), she gave me all the creative freedom I wanted and only gave me one tip, “I like lots of candlelight!” Well, we didn’t burn down Waterfall Banquet Center, so I would consider that a success! Dawn and I put candles in every facet of this wedding, and the warm glow really lit up the happy couple. Let’s just get right to the good stuff…
Sarah's bouquet is one of my all time favs…I wanted to capture her sweet and simple personality so I choose white and cream garden roses, white fringed tulips, white cymbidium orchids and ranunculus. White feather trim added the perfect amount of texture and style to this classic bouquet.
Bridesmaids carried green and white orchids with fringed white tulips, of course we added feathers and crystal trim too!
The bridal party adoring Sarah…that was an easy shot!
Sarah and Joe share their vows….doesn't the background look magical? I took inpiration from an episode of Platinum Weddings, and I think my version looks better!!
The aisle was lined with our new pedestals, which were linked with a crystal strand and a feather boa. Floating candles and orchids added some more drama!
A screen of willow trees decorated with crystals, votives, mirrored garland, snowflakes and orchids. Vases of pinecones and candles added some extra warmth to the ceremony location.
Windowsills were dressed with our diana candleholders, pinecones and orchids to warm up the room.
Adore the steamy lighting here in front of the waterfall!
The fireplace in the lobby was a perfect place for a big show of candles, roses, ornaments and my personal favorite, amaranthus!
Manzanita trees with orchids, crystals and hanging votives are taken to the next level with a lush floral ring at the base. Guests were able to take the ring home!
Coordinating candlelit centerpieces in a classic silver bowl, these were so elegant! The bowl is a rental item and the arrangement is designed to be given away to guests at the end of the party.
A simply beautiful cake stamped with snowflakes and adorned with orchids.
I know this has nothing to do with flowers, but I just had to include this shot! Silversound DJs (Dan Breslin was awesome!!) even got Gram Brooks out on the dance floor! Best wedding DJ I have ever heard!
I just had to include this one because I love when couples do this! She made her thank you cards with this shot!
That was just a selection of all the great photos from her wedding day, I hope you enjoyed a look into their special day! It was my pleasure to do what I love for the lovable Sarah, thank you for your total confidence in Dawn and I, but more importantly, thank you for our friendship. Love you 620 McKean (our freshman dorm at PSU!)
Stay tuned for my next blog entry about my wedding toast to the lovely couple…I have had lots of requests to publish it! There are more farmer’s wives out there that need to hear this!
