I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! Mary and I took a week off to get ourselves ready for Christmas and it sure felt strange not working! I have been working on this blog post off and on for days. It is a lot harder to blog from home with two little kids 'helping'! We LOVED this wedding. Bridget and John were a joy to work with. She came to use wanting untraditional wedding flowers, but gave us lots of leeway in flower choices and design concepts....we love creative freedom! They were married in Stone Harbor in October, with their reception following at The Princeton in Avalon, NJ. I loved all the extra little details and how south Jersey beachy their wedding felt!
Bridget carried a bouquet of cream garden roses, dill (yes, the herb dill!), ivory dahlias, nigella, succulents, and pitcher plants. The pitcher plants and dill were a last minute add....and I really think they made the bouquet!
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of soft green hydrangea, ivory dahlias, yellow zinnias, white nigella, dill, and succulents. I loved the soft colors with the pops of the yellow zinnias in front of the yellow gowns.
Bridget's bouquet was wrapped with burlap and had an ivory lace accent. The bridesmaids were wrapped with yellow satin and accented with twine.
The flower girl carried this adorable pomander of yellow button mums with green pins.
The bouts featured a succulent, pitcher plant, dusty miller, and a touch of the white nigella. They were wrapped with the twine as well.
At the church we tied yellow oncidium orchids to the pews with ivory satin ribbon. I love these orchids and they were the perfect shade of yellow for Bridget and John's wedding.
Looks like a fun bridal party!
Check out all this stuff they had set up! All we had to do was come in and dress it up a little with flowers. A few dahlias, touches of moss, and a candle and the table was perfect!
For their card box they used an old lobster box...so cute! We added sandblasted manzanita, succulents, and button mums.
They strung this burlap banner between two manzanita trees that we set up. Extra details like this are what really makes a wedding memorable!
I am obsessed with their lobster card box!
Instead of a guest book, they had their guests sign this surfboard!
Amazingly delicious looking appetizers!
The Princeton is a bar so it wasn't set up like a traditional reception. We made these smaller arrangements for all of the hightops. They were done in these sleek tin containers and filled with zinnias, roses, dahlias, air plants, succulents, and touches of moss.
I loved these arrangments. They weren't your typical centerpiece, but were gorgeous, and fit the venue perfectly. Each arrangment was slightly different and the guests/family got to keep them at the end of the night!
Yet another adorable sign! They didn't forget even one little detail!
The pitcher plants were added because a local supplier mentioned them in her availability earlier that week and I just couldn't resist. I love being able to add last minute finds like that!
On the other tables we did a larger version on the tin container filler with air plants, succulents, roses, dahlias, protea, and dusty miller.
All the different textures in these arrangments were truly amazing.
This wedding was so fun to work on. Looking back on it has really made me feel ready to get back into the flower shop! Thank you, Bridget and John, for letting us be a part of your wedding day. Your wedding was one of a kind and we were honored to be a part of your day!
