The cold weather we were experiencing broke on Saturday so that the sun could smile upon Emily and John's wedding. It was a lovely day at Montrose Mansion in Villanova. Emily's colors of regal red and passionate purple transformed this site into a festive setting for a fabulous party - just what Emily wanted. We placed wonderful family pictures, tons of red and white candles, and lots of fun flower creations throughout the rooms creating a warm and loving atmosphere. Emily's beautiful teardrop bouquet was a "nod" to her 1920's wedding theme. I'm really anxious to see professional pictures of this wedding. I'm sure that Emily was a breathtaking bride. She even looked adorable in her veil and "sweats" when I dropped off her bouquet!

My flash was just not working right so I can't show you just how bright the variety of arrangments we placed around the mansion were. We used feathers and beads and bubbles, everywhere. A large tropical flower arrangement graced the serving table in the Cuban room.
A vibrant mix of red and purple flowers in a silver trumpet vase sat on the placecard table. A smaller version sat on the baby grand in the livingroom.
Purple gathering vases were wrapped in red boas and contained a mix of purple and whtie flowers. Red gatherong vases were wrapped in purple boas and contained a mix of red and white flowers. Tall vases, pictured at the beginning of this entry, contained floating and standing dendrobium orchids. Red and purple ostrich plumes sprayed from the top along with gorgeous standard white calla lilies wrapped in textured gold wire. The newly re-done ballroom looked outstanding - just waiting for happy guests to arrive and get this party started!
