Brianna & Jason - Regal Red Roses

Brianna and Jason wanted a dramatic look to their wedding and chose a red, white, and black color palette. Brianna's very favorite flowers are red roses, so we decided to use them almost everywhere. To the red roses in her textured bouquet we added white freesia, greens, and variegated lily grass. The groom obviously wore a red rose boutonniere.

Bridesmaids wore long black gowns. Free form bouquets were primarily made up of red roses and white freesia, but we added some whimsical hot pink alstromeria into the mix. We grouped gaylax leaves on the back and tied everything up with white satin ribbon and black pins.

This placecard arrangement was made in a large silver trumpet vase. We constructed a large "head" of red roses, all with crystals in the center. Red rose petals were scattered at the base and in between all of the rows of the black and white placecards. All of arrangements were set up on tables covered with black overlays. White napkins and white china added a wonderful contrast. Brianna wrapped her favor boxes in black/white damask paper tied with a red ribbon and set them up in the center of the white dishes. They looked perfect!

Submerged red roses combined with red acrylics made up the cocktail table arrangements. We surrounded the cylinders with red rose petals.

Low centerpieces consisted of red roses, red votives, and red rose petals. The light from the candles bounces off the glass and looks beautiful.

Brianna wanted dramatic high centerpieces so we brought in her color palette by adding red roses to red, white, and black ostrich feathers set into a container filled with red, white, black, and clear marbles. At the base of the vase are four squares of red roses which alternate with candles.
