Yesterday's post gave you the birth of probably my most creative bridal bouquet. This is the rest of the wedding - I hope just as creative!
Maids' bouquets like no other - swirly and springy and texturey. I know, not really a word, but they're definitely loaded with texture. From the almost plastic like pin cushion protea to the soft moss and wool, everyone wanted to touch these bouquets.
Ranunculus boutonnieres for the groomsmen and orchids for the groom. A tuft of green dianthus and wool wrapped on the stems to finish them off.
This wedding was in the Lenox Hotel in Boston and the ceremony and dining room were one and the same, so we needed to create a setting for the ceremony to frame the couple that would bring a bit of the outdoors in. Do you remember the Facebook post I made showing giant pussy willows in my tiny hatchback? Well, these are them, all woven into a simple structure covered with viney foliage and pretty blooms.
We didn't get to see the dining room all laid out since it was set for the ceremony and would be converted afterwards, but here's a peak of behind the scenes.
Dining tables sans chairs, tucked away in a side room, waiting to be carried out during the cocktail hour. Yes, I said carried out. They are not on wheels.
The table centerpieces were an eclectic mix of tall and lower florals, some with branches, some without. All in the on trend purple and orange color scheme.
And this is the bridal bouquet inspiration that started it all! Those vanda orchids were much more purple in person than they are showing here. The frustrations of taking pictures - sometimes the color just isn't true. Some day, in my free time, when I have free time that is, I will have to work on my photo editing skills.
