Kirstin found me on Wedding Wire. She knew exactly what she wanted and booked me very quickly after the first contact! Turns out Kirstin was a teacher at the elementary school where I had done my student teaching and LOTS of subbing back in the day and where my Mother In Law use to teach pre-school! What a small world! Even better was that Kirstin was currently teaching my friends younger daughter and had taught her older daughter the year before! Needless to say I was very excited to book this wedding and very much looking forward to actually meeting Kirstin in person!
Kirstin’s vision for her wedding flowers was very simple and elegant- all white with lots of greenery. She had sent over her Pinterest board and I quickly fell in love with what she wanted for her bridal bouquet. Typically I try to get brides away from all white flowers as they tend to blend into the dress and aren’t seen very much in photos, but this one worked as it had greenery mixed in and a large collar of greens that helped the white pop. Kirstin’s bouquet was made with stunning and super fragrant white garden roses, white spray roses and a large collar and cascade in the front of seeded eucalyptus and lambs ear greenery. I was in LOVE with this bouquet! Even better, so was Kirstin!
Kirstin’s bridesmaid’s bouquets were a stem of white hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus and lambs ear greenery and stem wrapped with a white satin ribbon. Such a simple yet lovely bouquet, especially against the girls dresses!
Collin, the groomsmen, fathers and grandfather’s boutonnieres were made with white spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and lambs ear greenery. The moms pin-on corsages were also made with white spray roses, seeded eucalyptus and lambs ear greenery and a an iridescent bow. I loved how the corsage popped against Kirstin’s moms charcoal gray dress!
For the centerpieces Kirstin and I had collaborated and came up with doing two different types of centerpieces. I love doing two different centerpieces as it gives something interesting to look at! The centerpieces fit within the simple yet elegant theme and white with lots of greenery theme. Half of the rectangular tables’ centerpieces were a garland of greenery that included eucalyptus. There is something so pretty about all greenery down the middle of the table! It’s also very much the trend at the moment! For the other half of the centerpieces three cylinder vases with a stem of white hydrangea and both seeded eucalyptus and lambs ear greenery lined the middle of the table. So pretty! The centerpieces looked so lovely inside the ground of the beautiful Hacienda venue.
Lovely wedding for an even lovelier couple! Thank you for trusting me!
