Another green and white wedding done in February for a couple getting married out at the Oregon coast at Salishan Resort. They had an intimate wedding - 18 of their closest friends and family with a late afternoon ceremony and a lovely dinner afterwards. So everyone got flowers of some sort - bouquets, corsages or boutinieres... Here is the bride's bouquet - white lisianthus add romance and the andromeda at the edges gives a soft wildness. Below is a little treat for the couple's bedside table.
More bouquets from the Bridal Fashion Show with The English Dept. This one is dramatic - it features gorgeous Waltzetraum garden roses, Mi Amor roses, pink ranuncula, and Green Tiger orchids all topped off with a dip-dyed satin pink and chocolate ribbon.
This one was more woodland inspired and the whie and green neutral palette went with every dress...
This one is exotic - it was made to go with a stunning pomegranate chintz print dress by Elizabeth Dye. I used pale yellow/burgundy mini cymbidium orchids, Safari Sunset leaucadendron, blushing berzellia, andromeda, bonzai eucalyptus, tropical leaves, and striped flax leaf loops. The bottom pic shows the flax leaf loops from the side.
And last is this very romantic feminine bouquet. It features Mi Amor and Biedermier garden roses, and Mimi Eden spray roses. A collar of Queen Anne's Lace and sweetpeas as well as the sage green satin ribbon add a softness.
Lovely woven goods from Toast UK. Top - copy of an antique Welsh blanket, made of Shetland wool - woven on
traditional looms by a Welsh woollen mills. Bottom - indigo and ecru striped cotton hammam towel
Here are some of the bouquets I did for the Spring Bridal Fashion show with The English Dept. My favorite dresses of the show were at the beginning and featured a pale yellow dress and a few in greys. Here is are some bouquets that went with this group... this one is all shades of pale yellow and ivory - Moonstruck and Alexandra roses, Limoncello spray roses, fragrant white hyacinth, and blushing tulips. it is accented with drapey andromeda at the edges and a brown and ivory striped grosgrain ribbon.
This one featured the marigold and grey trend - very eclectic with these giant juicy marigold ranunculas, Tara and Sphinx Gold roses, Moonstruck roses, echeveria succulents, grey brunia, yellow kangaroo paws, and large dusty miller leaves.
This one featured peach and grey - very romantic but still modern.
Again those giant lush ranunculas in peachy green, Augusta Louise and Vendella roses, Porcelana spray roses, some early Spanish Dancer roses (they are usually more bright), grey brunia, and large grey dusty miller leaves. Tied with a titamium grey satin ribbon.
This is the scene of a wedding I did 3 weeks ago up at The Viewpoint Inn in Corbett, Or. It had been very cold in Portland and as I drove out into the Gorge I saw snow on the peaks. I took my exit slowly and entered into this wonderland. Being from California originally it was a bit hair-raising delivering a wedding in the snow. Thankfully, the road was well plowed and when I pulled into the circular driveway to the inn I saw this lovely site. A cozy inn with a view of the gorge adrift in snow. It was lucky as the bride had wanted there to be snow on her wedding day! Inside the inn was a large stone fireplace roaring away - everyone bustling to prepare for the occasion.
The colors for the wedding were white and green and here is what I designed... This is a large arrangement for the mantelpiece - they were married in front of it...
Avalanche and Supergreen roses, kale, Green Goddess calla lilies, hanging amaranthus, gooseneck, hypericum, magnolia leaves, bonzai and seeded eucalyptus, curly willow, and moss clusters.
And here is the bride's bouquet...
green kermit poms, white Avalanche and Moonstruck roses, Supergreen roses, white freesia and ranuncula, seeded eucalyptus and hypericum berries all tied off with a silk dupioni handle in khaki. The pic below it shows all the bouquets together - bridal, maid of honor, and flower girl.
Here are the boutinieres with Supergreen roses and a khaki ribbon tie as well as the wrist corsages - each with a wide dupioni ribbon (ties like a ballet slipper) and 3 Supergreen roses
And the table arrangements - low so people can talk at the table... The moss really added some of that woodland feel.
and finally what everyone waits for - the beautiful cake...
