Manuela & Marco at Romantic Ridley Creek Park

Manuela was an absolute delight to work with. How lucky her elementary school students are to have such a sweetheart of a teacher. Ella chose a color pallete of purple, lavender, and white for her wedding at Ridley Creek State Park. She also felt that she wanted to decorate Hunting Hill Mansion in a way that was appropriate for the era of the mansion. She decided that she would use urns and thought it would be fun to hunt for them herself. And she did a wonderful job too!

Manuela's bouquet consisted of purple lisianthus, lavendar lisianthus, white stock, and purple godetia. She also wore a lovely white gardenia in her beautiful dark hair. Marco's boutonniere was made up of a purple and lavender lisianthus.

Unfortunately I accidentally deleted my photo of the bridesmaids' bouquets, made up of various shades of stock. Groomsmen wore boutonnieres of godetia.

Tubed heads of hydrangea with lavender bows were placed on the pews at Holy Savior Church in Norristown.

I used three shades of stock to fill up the urn which went on the placecard table. This was similar to the flowers that the bridesmaids carried.

Ella bought three different styles of urns to use for her centerpieces. We decided to fill each with her favorite flower - hydrangea - plus a contrasting flower. The first type of urn was filled with beautiful purple hydrangea and white godetia.

I filled the second type of urn with huge stems of lavender hydrangea and purple carnations.

The third urn was filled with white hydrangea and lavender roses.

The cake sat in a nook on an upper level at the mansion. I decorated it with lavender roses, lisianthus, and purple carnations. I'm looking forward to seeing professional pictures of this beautiful purple wedding.
