Shannon & DeShun - Rockin at Rivercrest

Shannon wanted her wedding flowers to be soft, full, and asymmetrical! She wanted blooming branches and flowers that looked like they were just picked from the garden. So we used lots of hydrangea, stock, snapdragons, and other wonderful, soft bloomed flowers in pinks, white, and green to achieve the look she wanted for her wedding at RiverCrest Golf Club.

Shannon's gorgeous bouquet was made up of calla lilies, peonies, lisianthus, roses, and mini hydrangea. A big thank you to the lovely - and talented - Jenn Childress for sharing some of her beautiful photos with me. It's easy to tell which are Jenn's and which are mine!

DeShun wore a double white mini calla lily boutonniere.

Bridesmaids carried bouquets of two shades of pink spray roses. Groomsmen wore a single white mini calla lily.

The ring bearer carried a "present" of green button mums wrapped up in pink ribbon.

We made adorable flower wands for 5 flower girls with fresh roses and Baby's Breath and lots of pink streamers.

Lots of mock orange branches and a mix of pink and whtie flowers were arranged in a beautiful, huge glass vase that sat on the entry table for placecards.

Cocktail table arrangements were made up of pink roses and green dendrobium orchids sitting on clear acrylics in rectangular glass containers.

Due to a very early blooming season, I wasn't able to use the cherry blossoms that we wanted for the higher centerpieces. Fortunately, I found some pear, some mock orange, and some other blooming branches from California to use. I gathered the branches into bouquets with snapdragons, stock, and hydrangea and dropped them into the large glass vases that Shannon had purchased.

Low centerpieces consisted of hydrangea - in either pink or green - plus salal. Very simple - very pretty.

Shannon and DeShun wanted to honor their relatives and friends who could no longer be with them. The vase of roses represents the men and the iris the ladies. I placed them on the fireplace mantle in the seating area at the club.
