Lisa and Brandon - Belle Voir Beautiful Blue!

 Lisa wanted to incorporate a color palette of pink, yellow, blue, and white into her wedding at Belle Voir Manor in Bensalem.  She wanted a vintage look to her bouquet to go with her gorgeous vintage style wedding gown (and her stunning blue shoes.)  I made a bouquet of blue and white dendrobium orchids surrounded by a collar of salal. When Lisa looked at her bouquet for the first time she cried and said "I want to hold it now!"  She really loved it which pleased me no end.  Brandon wore a matching orchid boutonniere.  Bridesmaids carried bouquets of mixed pink and yellow flowers.

It was so windy on the day of Lisa and Brandon's wedding that we weren't able to set up the ceremony flowers outside on their pedestals. The gracious staff at Belle Voir took care of that later for us. I used lemon yellow lilies, blue larkspur, and white and pink larkspur in blue vases for this wedding.

Lisa and Brandon met at college so we thought of a way to highlight that fact. I wound blue wire around cylindrical bud vases and Lisa made the mini Pitt pennants for them. They were filled with golden yellow mums which combined with the blue wire represented Pitt's colors.
We hand-painted a monogram on the couples' placecard table container featuring a manzanita branch of white orchids.
Lisa wanted all of her wedding colors represented in her centerpieces, so I created three different ways to show them off. The first of the three groups contained flowes in all three colors - blue, pink, and yellow - in glass cylinders with pink acrylics in the bottom.

The second set of the centerpieces were tablescaped. I used three differently sized glass cylinders with different colored acrylics in their base. Each vase either had blue, yellow, or dark pink flowers in them.
For the taller centerpieces, I anchored a stalk of cymbidium orchids in a glass container of blue acrylics.
Lisa loved the idea of her bouquet that we "featured" it on her sweetheart table by sitting it in a table bouquet holder. It looks almost like a heart!

Congratulations to Lisa and Brandon.  Planning with you living in California worked out really well.  Your family and you were a breeze to work with.  And I'm most pleased that you loved your bouquet so much.   I wish you two the very best on the West Coast!
