Summer

  • Classic Navy and Fun Fuschia

    November 10, 2012 | Posted By: | Summer · Weddings |

    What a powerful combination of color!  A classy and bright palette really elevated the “wow factor” for this wedding at the Peabody Essex Museum.  The bride’s draped and shirred dress beautifully complemented the delicate ruffly peonies and bright blush garden roses in her bouquet.  Some sweet peas and a little ‘something blue’ was tied with a handle of ivory lace to coordinate with her gown.

    The photographer for this wedding, Channing Johnson, beautifully captured not only the wedding, but got some great detail shots of the beautiful flowers.  We loved this shot of the groom’s boutonniere wrapped in black grosgrain ribbon–it perfectly sets off the white blossom against the lapel.

    How stunning is this color combination!  We simply adore it.

    Willowdale in Summer

    November 4, 2012 | Posted By: | Summer · Weddings |

    Jacqui and Josh were married this July at the Willowdale Estate.  What is always surprising about the Willowdale, is their variety of spaces; no two weddings are alike.  The lush gardens and beautiful flagstone pavilion lets the celebration take the stage and provides that beautiful, natural background we love.  Soft and lush definitely describes the look and color palette of the bouquets and arrangements.  Soft ivory, pale peach, and some lovely coral blooms with touches of fresh mint green give a balanced and romantic feeling to the bride’s bouquet.

    The plump, velvety petals of white orchids, ivory garden roses, and even a cally lily or two definitely combine for a soft and beautiful bouquet.

    The bridesmaids’ bouquets showed all the lovely peach, corals, and dusty rose that complemented the bride’s bouquet.  We also added some scabiosa and poppy pods for a bit of sage coloring and some great texture.

    Since details are our specialty, check out the treatment of the bride’s bouquet handle.  We have a great collection of vintage lace and antique ribbons and pearl-head pins that adds to the uniqueness of the arrangements.

    The color scheme carried into the reception arrangements, too, and we liked the pretty mint green runners.  These colors just work!  The low arrangements give the tables an intimate feeling.
