Peach, Yellow, and Ivories at Willowdale

December 18, 2011 | Posted By: | Weddings |

This is a fave color palette of ours – soft peaches blended with yellows and ivories. Pops of green to keep everything looking crisp, fresh, and organic.

Thanks to our lovely bride Allison for sharing these images from Avenna Studios

Some of our favorite flowers are here: yellow tree peonies and double white clematis. Working with such quality blooms as these, the design work is really just a meditation on beauty. Lucky us!

Weddings at the Willowdale Estate are pretty magical affairs with the lovely historic mansion that has been lovingly restored to the beautiful tent at the rear of the property. For this wedding fete, we hoisted bright yellow and blue banners in the tent, evoking the groom’s Southwest upbringing with New England flowers.

Our bride collected gorgeous vintage containers from lots of sources, cut glass style goblets and votives – they were just perfect for the full lush summer blooms of Coral Charm peonies, Mock Orange, Juliet garden roses, and yellow tree peonies.

Thanks to Allie for being such a treasure to work with, to Willowdale for letting us work through the logistics of hanging the banners in their lovely tent, and to Avenna Studios for their beautiful documentation of the day!
