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.
