Jessica and Bill - Vivacious Villanova

Jessica wanted to use a color pallete of various shades of pink for her wedding which worked out nicely because there are so many to choose from. And Jessica made it so easy to work with some new shaped containers and ideas. I loved working on this wedding! I am so sad that Villanova will no longer allow ceremonies to be performed in the gorgeous patio area of Villanova Conference Center. You couldn't ask for a prettier setting.

Jessica's bouquet was made up of Esperance roses and pink calla lilies with rhinestone inserts. I incorporated tiny rhinestones into Bill's boutonniere as well. Bridesmaids carried a mix of pink roses. My pictures of these did not turn out at all.

Flower girls carried the cutest buckets of rose petals. Jessica found these on Etsy.

I made a variety of small arrangements of roses and acrylics in martini glasses for the cocktail hour. We made the cocktail stirrers out of different shades of aluminum wire.

Sitting pretty on the piano in the livingroom of Montrose Mansion is an arrangement of sunken roses plus a variety of pink flowers on the top.

One of my favorite arrangements is the colorful topiary I made for the gift table. I used a variety of pink and green flowers for the top, lots of curling ribbon, and green sisal and beading in the hot pink base.

The high centerpieces consisted of tall glass gathering vases filled with three shades of acrylics. In the top of the vases I layered hydrangea, Malibu roses, and larkspur.

I used three different shades of pink gathering vases for the low centerpieces. Each vase held hydrangea and roses in various shades of pink and white. The ballroom looked so beautiful with all the pink highlights throughout the room.
