This was a first, a throw away bouquet of 5 different smaller bouquets each with a special sentiment attached. We created a willow “wishing tree” display where guests left there sentiments for the married couple. The bride carried a delicate and gorgeous cascading bouquet that complimented her dress perfectly. The colors of the wedding were navy blue and yellow. A toile print was used as an accent cloth to bring in a colonial feel. The tables were mixes of stoneware pottery, wrought iron and glass. This was a wonderful wedding to create with such a creative bride!

Sherbet plaid linens accented with coral and green, flowers just picked from the garden. The bride wanted an elegant garden feel . It was really beautiful.

For the first time we worked at Rodeph Shalom Temple this past June. The entire family made this wedding celebration so incredibly special. We assisted with the last months of planning an did the flowers. It was a warm and fuzzy feeling the entire day. A mummer troupe was a surprise for everyone arranged by the bride. Such fun and such a lovely family. I would like them to adopt me! The flowers were understated yet beautiful. We made floral and ivy crowns for the mezinka -her Father kept his crown on throughout the evening. The brides bouquet was an exact replica of her grandmothers 1920’s bouquet, simple white calla tied with white satin ribbon and studded with pearls. The table arrangements were understated with lots of candlelight. It was simply perfect. Congratulations Cara and Chuck!

It was a picture perfect day for the outside ceremony and the wonderful seated dinner reception. The colors were whites with shades of purple. The bridal bouquets were stunning. The room looked beautiful. The style was romantic with a touch of modern. LOVE IT!
