Lauren was such a sweet bride to work with! We both had young daughters so we could instantly relate to one another! The look Lauren was going for was an elegant yet rustic mix using the colors burgundy, white and navy. I think we nailed it!
Lauren’s bridal bouquet was made using white stock, burgundy roses, burgundy red spray roses and a lemon leaf greenery collar stem wrapped with a navy satin ribbon. So lovely! The six bridesmaids carried similar bouquets made with white stock, red spray roses and a collar of greenery that included lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus.
Gary wore a boutonniere made with a burgundy rose with both lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus greenery while his six groomsmen wore similar boutonnieres made with red spray roses and both lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus greenery.
The ceremony site looked on to the beautiful lake and mountains and had a bamboo arch to mark the spot. The bamboo arch was decorated with two floral pieces each placed at a top corner. The two pieces were made with white hydrangea, burgundy roses and spray roses, dark blue delphinium and lemon leaf greenery. So pretty against an already incredibly beautiful backdrop!
For her reception Lauren chose to do two different centerpieces. We used mason jars for both looks and Lauren sewed little cozies for the jars made of burlap and lace, a navy blue ribbon and a burlap and lace bow adorned with a pearl button in the center. The first centerpiece was more of the “rustic” look and was made with white stock and both lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus greenery. The second centerpiece was the more “elegant” look and made with white hydrangea, red roses and both lemon leaf and seeded eucalyptus greenery.
Lauren chose to have a sweetheart table for her and Gary as well as a long head table for the rest of her bridal party. I love to save my clients money and repurpose things from the ceremony to the reception! On the sweetheart table we repurposed the two floral pieces that were on the arch on either end of the table. Along the head table we lined six mason jars down the table with Lauren’s handmade cozies and placed the bridesmaid’s bouquets in them! What an easy way to make a table look lovely!
It was such an honor to create the flowers for this amazing couple! I look forward to seeing what is in store for them and their family and look forward to our children running around playing together!
