Kasey & Matt - Perfect Polka Dots

Kasey and Matt are the most adorable couple and were a joy to work with. They wanted a wedding using a green, white, and black color pallete.... with polka dots. Fortunately their are a lot of great green flowers and we managed to add accents of black with ribbon, feathers, and some paint. What a fun color combination! Kasey chose a bouquet of Avalanche roses which are white roses with just a tinge of green to them. We added calla lilies and some stephanotis with light green pins in them. Matt wore the same stephanotis in his boutonnniere.

Bells of Ireland played a prominent role in the attendents' flowers. Roses sat upon a floret of Bells for the groomsmen and were mixed in among other green flowers for the bridesmaids. We used green on green polka dotted ribbon for their stem wrap.

We decorated the arch at Normandy Farm with a garland of fresh greens and "dotted" it with white roses. It added just the right touch to the setting for the ceremony.

I encourage my brides (and grooms) to take on a project for their wedding. I think it adds such a personal touch. Kasey and Matt did a fantastic job on their aisle buckets. They painted them and added the beautiful green ribbon. We filled them with white roses and green limonium. They looked perfect leading up to the arch. Great job!

White fugi mums sat atop squares full of green bubbles. They look like polka dots to me! We'll be using them a lot more in some of our upcoming weddings.

Black and white ostrich feathers made their appearance among the flowers in the placecard table arrangement. The placecards were really pretty. Kasey and Matt added a lot of wonderful details to this wedding in their programs, menus, and polka dotted wrapped favors.

Three different contemporary centerpieces highlighted the color scheme. We filled squares with equisetum, hydrangea and hypericum berries. A pyramid of green roses was also constructed in squares. We repeated the equisetum in tall squares topped off with a mix of green and white flowers. We also painted some tropical leaves black to add some extra interest.
