Kristy & Cliff - Waggin the Wagon!

Kristy and Cliff wanted a bright color pallette of bright pink, white, black, and silver for their wedding at Columbia Station. I love the outdoor ceremony area there. We set up pedestals with silver trumpet vases full of pink and white flowers. I painted the "greens" a black color to complete the look. These pretty containers set the tone for the ceremony and reception.
Amidst the sea of color, Kristy carried a lovely all white bouquet made up of white roses and pearled stephanotis. Cliff's boutonniere was made up of stephanotis.
Bridesmaids carried bouquets of alstromeria and spray roses. Groomsmen wore matching spray roses boutonnieres.
Three year old twin flower girls carried pomanders of bright pink carnations with black pins.
Since Kristy and Cliff's son was too little to walk down the aisle, Kristy found a wagon for him to sit in. I had a blast decorating it for him with a black boa and silk flowers!
Martini glasses were filled with black bubbles. On top of them I sat a white gerber daisy with a black center and made a bright pink heart "stirrer" to complete the arrangement. Simple and so cute for the cocktail hour room.
Since Cliff loves orchids, I filled a large glass cylinder with a stem of beautiful cymbidiums for the placecard table.
I filled small champagne buckets with an array of pink and white flowers. These were placed on some of the tables.
I painted birch branches black and hung crystals and pink roses among them for the other tables.
I think that the hot pink petals looked awesome laying on the black tablecloth. Kristy bought pretty candles and bouquets were placed in all of the vases across the front of the head table as well.

I love the silver on this cake. We just added some bling around the base and ...voila! Pretty as well as delicious!
