Melissa & Robert - Black, White, and Red All Over

Melissa and Robert held their wedding ceremony at the chapel in Valley Forge Park and then moved the party to the Plumbers Union Hall for dining and dancing. Melissa chose a color pallete of red, white, and black which was so much fun to work with and added so much brightness to their reception. I take no responsibility for the photos below however. Anne takes even worse pictures than I do and she set up (lol). If Melissa reads this and has better photos - PLEASE SHARE!

Melissa carried a bouquet of my favorite red roses - Red Intuition. If you look closely, the roses have darker red veins on their medium red petals. Just gorgeous! I also added stephanotis to the roses.

The Maid of Honor carried a bouquet of red and white roses. Bridesmaids' bouquets were made up of just white roses.

The ring bearer carried a "present" of red carnations and black and white polka dotted ribbon.

I hung test tubes of red roses and glass crystals from painted black birch branches for the placecard table. I had also done an adorable arrangement of Macy gerber daisies (red, white, and black mixed) which was not photographed.

Melissa and Robert have two adorable bulldogs. I used black and white vases to hold red gerber daisies. Melissa took photos of her babies and I added different poses to each vase.

Gathering shaped low vases were filled with red acrylics and tied in the middle with a black and white polka dotted ribbon. They were filled with white gerber daisies, red roses, and other flowers. These arrangements were MUCH cuter than this picture!

Tall vases were filled with clear acrylics and a red rose. Ivy dripped from an arrangement of red roses and other red and white flowers.

Touches of roses added just a bit of color to the wedding cake highlighted by a Lalique topper. Congratulations to Melissa & Robert!
