Amanda & Mike - Bubbling Over With Joy

Amanda chose a wonderful color pallete of pink, white, and black. We worked with some beautiful orchids and some fun centerpiece ideas using Aquagems - which I call bubbles. I think the results are fabulous and Amanda was a delight to work with.
Her gown - which I will get a picture of - was spectacular. The beading work all over it was especially pretty. Even one of the male waitors at Normandy Farms told her how pretty her dress way. She looked so beautiful!

Amanda carried a bouquet of gorgeous Esperance roses. I painted the pins in her stephanotis to match the pink of the roses. It looked fantastic! Yet another way to show off one of my favorite roses.

Mike's boutonniere matched Amanda's stephanotis in her bouquet and we added painted greens as an accent.

Bridesmaids - in black dresses of course - carried pink and white bouquets of alstromeria and roses. Groomsmen wore spray rose boutonnieres to match.

It looked like Normandy Farms planted those flowers climbing up the trellis just for this wedding. They matched perfectly. And we made a spray of pink and white flowers for the top of the arch to balance out the sides.
Cute arrangements of orchids and mini gerber daisies were put on the cocktail tables.

A fun "lamp" sat among the black and white placecards. The crystals inside looked very much like bubbles. The vase was lit up from both the bottom and the top.

We used three different square centerpieces for the tables consisting of two low and one high - and of course bubbles! The first centerpiece with white bubbles in the base contained trachelium, dendrobium orchid blooms, and hydrangea.

The second low centerpiece consisted of "greens" , pink roses, hydrangea, and pink bubbles.
I couldn't believe how many beautiful pink cymbidium orchids came on the stems that we ordered. They were gorgeous. In the bottom of the vases we used the bubbles in black and surrounded the outside of the tall vases in polished black river rocks.

This cake is too cute. There are even bubbles on the layers. I love it!
