Jennifer & Jason - Bubbling Over With Happiness

For her wedding and reception at Concord Country Club, Jennifer wanted to use a color palette of yellow, white, and blue. She also wanted to personalize her decor wherever possible. The couple was very fortunate to have some very talented family members who did just that for them - as exemplified by the charming flag that marked the entrance to the church. I wasn't able to get a photo, but there was also a personalized aisle runner inside. Just beautiful!

Jennifer's bouquet was made up of blue dendrobium orchids, white roses, and yellow calla lilies. Jason also wore a yellow calla lily as his boutonniere. My photos of the bridesmaids' bouquets were dreadful, but they carried light yellow roses with blue dendrobium orchids. The groomsmen wore light yellow rose boutonnieres.

Our artist personalized a tin container for the wedding to place on the altar. Jenn & Jason plus yellow flowers were painted on the front. The wedding date was added to that back. What a wonderful keepsake for them to have.
As a nod to their love of good wine, I decorated the placecard table with wine bottles that Jenn brought to me to fill with flowers. I also scattered some mercury glass candle holders and yellow rose petals between the placecards.
Jenn and Jason both attended the University of Delaware. Go Blue Hens! I used blue and yellow rubber bands around each container and pinned the decal that Jenn gave me onto the front. A blue hydrangea topped off the cute vase.

As more and more couples are doing these days, Jenn & Jason chose to sit at a guest table. To differentiate their chairs, I slipped a ribbonned yellow carnation into their chair bands.

I made three types of centerpieces for this wedding based on blue, white, and yellow flowers with ribbonned or bubble filled cylinders. The tall arrangements were made up of blue hydrangea, yellow carnations, and standard white calla lilies. White bubbles filled the tall cylinders.

Low centerpiece cylinders were wrapped in blue ribbon with a yellow overlay and filled with yellow bubbles. Flowers consisted of white hydrangea, yellow carnations, and blue delphinium.

And the third type of centerpiece consisted of table-scaped cylinders with either bubbles inside or ribbon outside. Each vase had it's own color of flowers to match the others in the room.
The ballroom looked so bright and happy with the vivid blues and yellow placed throughout. And even though the sun wasn't shining outside, Jenn and Jason brought the sunshine inside! Congratulations to both of you!
