I am sooooo excited to share this wedding today. Any one that has read our blog before has read about Tina. She is a great friend of ours and a truly talented photographer based out of Philly. She has photographed many weddings that we have done, and has even done personal photo shoots of our kids (they love her too!). When Tina and Jeremy got engaged we knew that their wedding would be one to remember; they know how to have a good time! Tina hired fellow photographer, Jamie Delaine as her wedding photographer (she flew in from Vancouver Canada for the wedding!) and I was beyond thrilled to see the shots that Jamie caught of Tina and Jeremy’s wedding day. Tina knew she wanted a modern wedding with some traditional touches. This is a couple that LOVES Philadelphia, Jeremy even popped the big question right in Rittenhouse Square, so it was no surprise when Tina picked Top of the Tower for their wedding to take place. We used phalaenopsis orchids (we always love an excuse get our hands on these), limes, dahlias, and lots of fun little details to make Tina’s day extra special.
We knew Tina would be a gorgeous bride so we had better make a bouquet to match. I think Mary nailed it with this all white bouquet. She used dahlias, white polo roses, ranunculus, parrot tulips, brunia berries, maidenhair fern and stephanotis with a rhinestone accent. We wrapped the bouquet with ivory satin and champagne lace. A crystal brooch completed it (LOVE!). When ordering her bouquet, Tina said “I want it to be so big that I can barely fit my hands around it!” OUR KINDA GAL!
Tina sure made for one HOT bride! STUNNING!!!
Finding the lace for this bouquet took me hours…I think it was totally worth it.
Since their wedding didn’t take place at a church, we helped define the aisle with these lanterns. A green cymbidium orchid tucked in the top of these lanterns and a scattering of rose petals were all it took to make their ceremony room glow.
To create a backdrop behind the couple as they said their vows we used our pillars filled with curly willow, phalaenopsis orchids, crystals, and hanging mirrors.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of green cymbidium orchids, parrot tulips, green trachelium, brunia berries, and maidenhair fern. All the green looked so pretty against their black dresses, but seriously, the flowers can’t compete with these beauties!
Check out this adorable vase we used for their cocktail tables. We are able to slide in a picture, so Tina gave us a bunch of her engagement pictures to use. What a great way to get some more use of your engagement photos! A mound of white dahlias made this the perfect size for the cocktail tables.
For the place card table we covered the table with wheat grass and then added bells of Ireland, ranunculus, maidenhair fern, and cymbidium orchids. The cards were nestled among the flowers – so cute!
The cake was decorated with bells of irelend and cymbidium orchids – totally modern and gorgeous!
We did not want to compete with the jaw-dropping view at Top of the Tower’s reception room, so we decided to keep the centerpieces simple. We filled our chic vases with limes (the perfect shade of green) and had stems of phalaenopsis orchids cascading from the top of the vase. We added a band of black ribbon with a rhinestone brooch to the top, and placed a single flower at every place setting. Only the best for our Tina!
I love, love, love these orchids!
Tina and Jeremy, you two are such a sweet couple and we really enjoyed doing your wedding flowers and being a part of your day. Best wishes to both of you on your future together!!! XOXO <3
