Red and White Wedding Flowers

Time sure is flying by! I cannot believe how fast 2011 has gone. I still have SO many beautiful weddings to share! This wedding was for a wonderful couple that I had the pleasure of working with back in May.

The wedding colors were red and white with touches of black. I love the bride’s bouquet since we played with textures! Yes I am obsessed with texture! We used, roses, hypericum berries, anemones, gerbera daisies, cox comb and touches of white dendrobium orchids.

The bridesmaids carried a mix of white and red gerbera daisies with white roses.

For the flowers to wear there were many different styles so it is best just to show them! We used black tape to cover the stems to bring a touch of the color as well as bring in the elegance.

For the flower girl, how cute is this crown?!?! The spray roses are accented with hypericum berries and Italian ruscus with a satin bow at the back. She also carried a white basket filled with petals that she tossed down the aisle. A satin band and bow were added to the basket for a uniform look.

The couple had a beautiful dramatic aisle way with a classic white runner. We placed two pillars at the back of the aisle with a lush arrangement of flowers in a black box. A few of the chairs were accented with clusters of gerbera daisies to add a splash of color and life. At the front of the aisle an arch was accented with red flowers and red wired tulle.

The reception was a traditional Vietnamese dinner. Because there was a large “Lazy Susan” in the center of the table that would be filled with food the couple thought it would be best not to have an overwhelming centerpiece. I completely agreed! The last thing we wanted was to have the flowers interfering with the dinner! A low dish was filled with a topiary inspired centerpiece made from gerbera daisies and roses accented with rocks and folded leaves. They were just the right amount of color on each table and worked perfectly!

For the head table the aisle pieces were reused as well as the pillars added to each side. The bride’s bouquet was placed in the center for the final touch! Who would not LOVE this sweetheart table!!

It was such a pleasure to work with this couple and I can tell they are going to have a wonderful life together! They seemed to be a great compliment and completely in love! Thank you for me be part of your day.
