Fall Wedding Classic

A white and pale green bridal bouquet featuring mini callas, hydrangea, ranunculus, dahlias, roses, and bunny grass.

My favorite part of this bouquet (besides the bunny grass!) is the personal touch on the handle. The bride's mother snuck me a piece of lace from her mother's wedding gown, so that would be from the bride's grandmother's gown. It was a piece cut from the "V" at the front of the bodice.

I tucked the cut edges under and held it in place with pearl headed pins. Mom wrote a note to her daughter, the bride, to explain the significance of the lace, which we presented to the bride with the bouquet. A few almost tears were quickly blinked away - no raccoon eyes! I love when something is that kind of personal, as a wedding should be.

Pretty fall maids in a row, packed to go!

The reception was at The International in Bolton MA. Glass cubes filled with fall colors in dahlias, large mums, orchids, berries, roses, yarrow, and amaryllis. I had a heck of a time getting those amaryllis open! Flowers can be temperamental and I bet those amaryllis were even prettier the next day. Getting the flowers to open and be at the peak of perfection is one of the many logistical challenges in planning flowers for an event, and the flowers don't always cooperate.

There were no lights on in the club and it was gloomy and misty in the wooded location that day, so these pics don't do the colors justice but I'm sure you can imagine the classic New England fall combo of red, orange, gold, and rust!
