Avalon Wedding Florist : Melissa & Tom at the Avalon Yacht Club

Today we are featuring Melissa & Tom's Avalon Yacht Club wedding from back in November.  It's hard to tell this event took place in the fall, because the vibrant orange and blue color scheme teamed up with the nautical touches truly make this beach wedding feel like summer.

Diamond Street Photography took these amazing photos - you can't even tell by looking at them just how cold and windy this wedding really was!  It doesn't hurt that this couple outshines professional models - we've never seen such pearly white smiles and luscious blonde locks!

Of course, the wildly talented Kristin Barse of Bel Momento Event Planning was there to make sure this event was nothing but smooth sailing (pun intended, ha!)  What greater luxury could a bride have than to have a wedding coordinator there to help her enjoy it as much as she can??

Check out this nautical November wedding, below!

Melissa's bridal bouquet was a fun and festive mix of different colors and textures.  We used a combination of white polo roses, white majolica spray roses, orange dahlias, orange zinnia, anemone, lambs ear, dusty miller and blue thistle

Melissa's bridesmaids carried bouquets of white hydrangea, with a navy blue and white striped wrap and finished off an orange ribbon.

The lucky groom!  For Tom, we made a bout of white spray roses, red berries, and blue thistle.  We are loving his orange trimmed pocket square - very dapper.

Tom's groomsmen wore bouts of white gomphrina, blue thistle, viburnum berry and orange bittersweet.   We gave them a little more pop by wrapping them in orange ribbon.

We kept the aisle arrangements simple and classic, adding these giant, sheer ribbon bows to the pews.

Guests were welcomed with our tall metal vase, filled with white hydrangea, viburnum berries, and greens.  We tied it off with a knotted rope and more blue and white ribbon to match the linen.

We love these adorable accents to fit with Melissa's theme.

Melissa had a combination of tall and low centerpieces to add some dimension to the room.  For her high arrangements, we used our tall vases and packed them with sand and curly willow, and then flanked them with cubed vases of white hydrangea.

How awesome are these table number holders?!  We couldn't get enough of the couple's attention to detail.

Of course, who can resist a little knotted napkin tie

The only hint of the fall season were a few potted mums to accent the cocktail area, wrapped in burlap and tied with an ivory ribbon.

Melissa and Tom had this sweet little set up for their sweetheart table.  Melissa's bouquet was placed here, and we scattered a few votives to enhance the look.

Melissa added her own touches with these cool globes, and a hanging rope sign that we are only a little bit jealous of.
