Laura & Joe at the Fabulous Fonthill

I enjoyed working on this wedding immensely. I loved Laura's choice of wedding colors - orange, green, and white - and really appreciated her attention to detail. My photos don't do her hard work justice, but I wanted to share some of her great ideas. Working at Fonthill - a place we've toured several times - was wonderful! I was so happy to be there.

Laura's bouquet was made up of SuperGreen roses, ivory lisianthus, and green hypericum berries. It looked stunning against her wedding gown.

I made Joe's boutonniere out of ivory lisianthus and hypericum berries.

I filled mason jars with green fuji mums hung from shepherds' hooks. These lined the aisle, upon which I scattered orange rose petals. Laura arranged her programs in vintage wooden boxes for guests to take.

I made sprays of circus roses for the Moms to carry down the aisle.

Bridesmaids' dainty bouquets of Circus roses and green hypericum berries. I loved how they "popped" against their dresses.

Groomsmen wore matching boutonnieres.

Laura made containers of golf pencils for the cocktail tables representative of Joe's love of golf. I filled them with yellow, white, and orange alstromeria.

I arranged green dendrobium orchids and white hydrangea in a cylinder filled with green apples for the placecard table. Laura set up her placecards in moss-filled vintage suitcases which looked adorable!

I LOVED working on these centerpieces. Our idea was to utilize only flowers that came in green, white, and orange - which I have to admit were sometimes painted. The centerpieces were then done in pairs. One set were arranged in leaf wrapped squares while the matching ones with those same flowers, were tablescaped in square vases. Roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, calla lilies, gladiolus, and hydrangea were used.

Laura's mom loved my wire decorated vases so I made one for her to enjoy.

Touches of green and white roses decorated the wedding cake. What a lovely end to a lovely wedding. Congratulations to both of you!
