Here are some photos from my latest wedding on July 2nd. I couldn't get a good shot of the ceremony arbor due to the chairs being in the way. There was garland on the arbor, with three sections of flowers, and two big urns on either side.
The cake had white chocolate curls all over it; when they first rolled it into the ballroom, I thought it was seashells.
The stair railings in the club had to be swagged with tulle, and tied off at intervals with sprays of foliages and blue hydrangeas.
Each table centerpiece was in a silver plate container. I have a collection of Victorian teapots, bowls, cachepots, etc. that I use for these. The bride requested French blue and raspberry colored flowers, and I used snapdragons, lilies, bells of Ireland, phlox, bouvardia, roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, blue delphinium and dendrobium orchids.
This wedding presented an odd situation for me: I was initially contacted by the bride's mother, who lives in PA. The bride's father lives here in our area, and the bride was in CA. I never got to meet the bride or her mother; my meetings and all communication were with the father and his current wife. I always feel sort of funny about not being able to speak with the bride before the wedding. It is hard to know exactly what she wants if I have to imagine it through the voice of her father (in person) and mother (via email). I do know the father was happy with everything, but until I hear from the mother or the bride, I will not rest on my laurels.
