Janet & Louis - Normandy Magic

Janet chose a beautiful color palette of white, blue, green, and lavender for her wedding and marriage to Louis. The soft colors and soft flowers that she chose blended together so wonderfully. Janet paid a lot of attention to the details of their wedding and included several of her family members in the making. Dad was in charge of the placecards! MIL chose the fabric for the chuppah. Louis' daughters helped with the wreaths for the outside doors. And Janet herself was busy painting ceremony buckets! It all paid off in the end and looked terrific! There will be much better pictures than these soon available on her wonderful photographer's blog -

Janet's bouquet was made up of a variety of flowers including lavender lisianthus, white lisianthus, white mini calla lilies, blue delphinium, green mini hydrangea, and mini green cymbidium orchids. Lots of texture and lots of color. Louis wore a boutonniere of a green cymbidium.

Five bridesmaids' bouquets were made up of lisianthus and blue delphinium. The groomsmens' delphinium boutonnieres matched perfectly.

The Moms each carried a standard white calla lily down the aisle. Dads wore matching mini white calla lily boutonnieres.

A ringbearer carried a "box" made from Kermit mums with two silver rings in the lavender bow at the top.
Two flower girls carried moss "purses" filled with three shades of stock.

The ceremony was held on the grounds of Normandy Farms. I decorated their arch with a garland of greens and white roses. In order to use the arch as a chuppah, we wove fabric through the rungs of the arch. Janet painted cute buckets for the hydrangea that lined the aisle.
A mix of lavender, white, and blue flowers arranged on a tall glass vase was added to the placecard table.
I used four different colors of hydrangea for the guest tables. The cylinders containing the flowers were each color coordinated with specific double ribbons. The pin spotting chosen by Janet highlighted each centerpiece and was the perfect finishing touch.

Colorful hydrangea and candles chosen by Janet decorated the sweetheart table.

And delicate blooms of dendrobium orchids were the icing on the cake! Congratulations to Janet and Louis!
