Robert and Patricia - Pretty Purple Posies

Patricia and Robert wanted lots and lots of purple, with accents of white, for their wedding decor. My favorite color is purple, so I was more than happy to oblige. I don't think you can ever have too much purple. We came up with some great ideas to carry through their colors.
Patricia's bouquet was a beautiful combination of purple lisianthus, purple tulips, and stephanotis with pearls in their center. Robert wore a matching lisianthus/stephanotis boutonniere.

Bridesmaids carried bouquets of pretty purple carnations and white tulips. We wrapped their stems in their dress fabric.

It may be difficult to see but we have floating silver angelhair wire inside the placecard arrangement vase. It looks really great in person and we received a lot of compliments on this piece when we brought it into the Townsend Room. We topped it off with orchids, alstromeria, and various tropical leaves.

The three centerpieces we designed were simple, but highlighted really pretty purple flowers like floating orchids, alstromeria, carnations and hydrangea. We added purple votives, wrapped tropical leaves inside vases, and added a Monstera leaf placemat to make them all a little more unique.
