Jen & Joe - Skippack Rocks!

I had the honor of working my first wedding at Hotel Fiesole in Skippack with Jennifer and Joe. It's right in my own neighborhood! I was particularly excited when Jen first contacted me and absolutely thrilled when I met her in person. What a lovely person she is! She wanted to use pink and we needed to make it look more like "Fall" than Spring. And with the addition of burgundy, I think we accomplished it beautifully. I really enjoyed working with this color combination and a couple that were enthusiastic about doing things "a little bit differently". Congratulations to the two of you!

Jen's bouquet was made up of burgundy roses, pink sweetheart roses, pink spray roses, and green mini hydrangea for a texture and color contrast.

Joe wore a boutonniere of sweetheart roses and hypericum berries.

Jen's attendant carried a bouquet of pink roses and burgundy gomphrena.

An example of a pink and burgundy corsage for this wedding is included.

The wedding ceremony took place in an upstairs room at the Hotel. I made one large pink and burgundy arrangement in a green urn to sit in front of the large window.

Jen loves to cook. So we put our heads together and came up with an unusual placecard table arrangement The glass is filled with brussel sprouts, eggplants, and peppers. In addition to the burgundy seeded eucalyptus, I added flowers and winter cabbages! We all loved it!! I recommended that Jen not cook with the veggies in the glass because I coated them with LeafShine - but I gave her all the leftovers so she could do just that later. I hope she made something yummy!

I gave instructions to Jen and she had her dad make these cute golf containers for Joe for the cocktail tables. He was so proud of these! I think they came out great. I added a "golf bag" to the top of each and filled them with fall hydrangea.
Flowers in the centerpieces included mini gerber daisies, dahlias, hypericum berries, and hydrangea in different colors. The containers of both versions were filled with burgundy chipped glass pieces.

I made smaller versions of the guest table centerpieces for the sweetheart table and added a frothy bow and rose to the back of the bride and groom chairs.

Hotel Fiesole's baker makes their wedding cakes. I hope it tasted as good as it looked!
