Barbara & Tom - Hot Colors at the Downtown Club

The Downtown Club in Philadelphia is one of my very favorite places to work in Center City. The view from their large windows is outstanding. On Friday, the Spring weather was also picture perfect. What a fabulous day and a fantastic place for Barbara and Tom to choose to get married.
Barbara and Tom wanted to use bright colors to jumpstart the Spring season. We mixed oranges, pinks, and corals to accomplish this. Bridesmaids carried bright bouquets of orange roses and hot pink alstromeria. Barbara carried a beautiful bouquet made up of ivory roses, coral roses, and pink lilies. The ivory rose was used for Tom's boutonniere and groomsmen used the coral roses from Barbara's bouquet.

Since the DTC has such a large table for placecards, we used three vases on it for this wedding. Folded tropical leaves, pink and orange gladiolus, and palm leaves sprayed from a vase of green acrylics. Flanking the large vase were two smaller versions of the same vase filled with palm leaves and tulips in opposing colors.

The sweetheart table displayed vases of orange floral foam with ivory roses and pink floral foam with coral roses. These vases alternated with votive candles for that special glow.

Hot pink vases sported orange bow ties. We placed orange tulips and bear grass in each of them for the cocktail tables.

Tall vases of blooming cherry blossoms looked great in the ballroom with the beautiful high ceilings. We tied on ribbon streamers of orange and pink on the branches. The other two centerpieces consisted of hot pink orchids over orange acrylics and bouquets of orange and hot pink roses sitting on hot pink acrylics. Spring was in the air!

We used orange and hot pink spray roses to finish off Barbara & Tom's wedding cake.
