Yesterday Mary and I attended Delaware Valley Wholesale Florists Florapalooza. We had such a good time and came back really excited and energized about 2011. It was amazing to be there with approximately 800 people that loved flowers just as much as we do. We got to check out some of the newest up and coming flowers from all over the world…and of course we made sure to take detailed notes and lots of photos. Our 2011 brides are in for some really amazing stuff!!! Last week I got a photo CD sent over from one of our October brides, Kerry. This girl is GORGEOUS so I knew her photos would rock…and I wasn’t disappointed. Kerry and Garrett had their reception at Running Deer and, as usual, the room looked beautiful. We really love working at Running Deer, the wedding coordinator, Heather, is a dream to work with and the staff there always has everything set up and running so smoothly. Kerry loved purple, so we used purple tulips and purple callas…sometimes using just one or two kinds of flowers, done right, really makes the boldest statement. Sarah Schulte Photography really caught some amazing shots of the flowers….check them out for yourself!
LOVED her dress, her hair, her veil….well basically I loved it all!
Kerry carried a bouquet of calla lilies in two shades of purple. We accented the bouquet with bear grass loops and a rhinestone studded brooch.
Gorgeous photo – love the lighting!
Good looking bridal party!!!
The bridesmaids dresses were adorable. I loved the length, the sweetheart neckline and the deep eggplant color.
The back of Kerry’s dress was just as amazing as the front! The bridesmaids carried bouquets of purple tulips and purple callas wrapped with black satin ribbon, a perfect match for their dresses!
I like how the callas are different shades of purple. Monochromatic bouquets can be so sophisticated.
Tulips are perfect for dressing up the place card table. We used flats of wheat grass and picked the tulips in among the cards. LOVE.
Half of the tables were done with our Diana candle holders and pedestal vase. We swirled in bear grass, filled them with water and river rocks, and floated ivory candles in them. A handful of lavender rose petals finished the table.
The other half of the tables were done with manzanita centerpieces. We used a cylinder with some river rocks, a single picasso calla lily and added manzanita branches. On the branches we hung hanging votives and crystal garland.
Thank you so much Kerry and Garrett for sharing these photos with us. You were gorgeous and we loved being a part of your day. XOXO!
