Cream and Pale Gold Wedding

This bouquet was for a woman who wanted classic elegance - all creams and ivories. We used every shade of ivory we could find, from the peachy to parchment, cream to camel, buff, and biscuit.

Roses, ranunculus (I know! In the fall! From South America...loving the other hemisphere for giving our winter and spring flowers a whirl for fall), and gardenias. A pearly touch in the gardenias gives them the feel of millinery flowers from a vintage hat maker.

The ceremony was supposed to be outdoors, but the weather was sketchy. Seems to have been a lot of that this year...so the archway was moved indoors for the vows.

Lots of luscious blooms to float above our happy couple's heads.

A simply hydrangea cluster to mark the aisle.

The get away "car"!

The reception was at the International Country Club in Bolton MA.

Some of the tables had low centerpieces with an abundance of lovely blooms, more is more.

Other tables had clouds of babies' breath on pedestals, floating above the tables.

OK, I really, really love amaryllis. Sigh...they make everything rich and sexy.

Sure, there were also roses, hydrangea, and stock, but they were ladies in waiting to the regal queen amaryllis.

Cake by Enchanted Wedding Cakes - love Gretchen's work!

Can you see the little pearls like in the bride's bouquet?!

Weddings are all in the tiny, pearl sized details.

These flowers were even MORE beautiful in person--I should know because I'm the bride :-) Thanks so much Sprout for doing an amazing job on the flowers for my wedding! ~Sarah

Just love cream colored flowers - they are so elegant. The green apple place cards are a great twist, especially for a New England wedding.

YAYYYY!!!! Thanks Sarah - you made my day!

And MAWG - the apples were all Sarah and her dad. We agree on the subtle fall touch! ;-)

Well you can take some credit Kathy! the apples came from the company in an all wrong, bright green color. Thanks to Sprout, we figured out a way to spray paint (using floral spray paint!) the apples lightly and subtly to make them look like real apples!

Ha ha! Now you and your dad know all my tricks!
