Samantha & Joe - A Circus of Roses

We used hundreds and hundreds of Circus roses for Samantha and Joe's beautiful Fall wedding. The two-toned Circus roses are one of my very favorites - a bright yellow edged in a vivid orange. Samantha's bouquet was made up of Circus roses, mini Mango calla lilies, Harley mini gerber daisies, and mini sunflowers. We bound her stems with gold satin ribbon with an overlay of brown striping secured with yellow pins. The Matron of Honor carried a bouquet of mini sunflowers and greens with fall colored streamers. Bridesmaids carried a similar bouquet of Sunway and Mexx standard gerber daisies. Boutonnieres of a Mango mini calla, Goldy mini gerber daisies, and Viking mums matched the bouquets perfectly. What a wonderful combination of beautiful Fall colors.

Our placecard piece cylinder was filled with green, yellow, and red apples in keeping with the surrounding favors of candied apples.

Simple budvases of various two toned mini gerber daisies graced the cocktail tables at Normandy Farms.

Half of the tables had beautiful Circus roses in cylinders with orange and green banding around the center. The other half of the tables had taller cylinders of Circus roses banded in brown and gold ribbon. The insides of both cylinders were lined with aspidistra leaves. Smaller versions of these vases alternating with candles graced the sweetheart table.
The beautiful mocha colored cake was finished at the bottom with lots and lots of Orange Unique and Malibu roses. I love the look of a chocolate cake in the Fall.
