Ashlee & Mark at Kimberton Inn

Ashlee and Mark's wedding took place at the lovely Kimberton Inn. She wanted to use a color palette of red and white with accents of silver. It fit in beautifully with the holiday decorations already displayed. Ashlee's bouquet was made up of gorgeous red mokara orchids in a more non-traditional bouquet. Mark wore a mini-white calla lily for his boutonniere.

Ashlee wanted a more "untamed" bouquet of red daisy mums and white lisianthus for her bridesmaids to carry. . Groomsmen wore boutonnieres of red hypericum berries.

At Kimberton Inn, the indoor ceremony takes place in the beautiful reception area. We set aside the centerpieces and set up the ceremony flowers as Ashlee requested. On white pedestals, I filled two silver trumpet vases with hydrangea, carnations, calla lilies, and white branches. It looks so pretty sitting in front of the fireplace.

Ashlee chose to use my tall silver vase with red lilies and winter branches for her placecard table.

We used two centerpieces for the wedding reception. The tall centerpieces contained red berries and white branches in the base. The winter greens and flowers topped off the containers with some white winter branches and burgundy snapdragons.

I mixed lots of white hydrangea with red carnations in glass squares. I topped off the flower arrangement with a few white branches to keep the look of winter.

Congratulations to Ashlee and Mark.  May you always be as happy as you were on your wedding day!

Prerana and Nithin - Top of the Tower

I first met the adorable Prerana and Nithin at my Bridal Blossoms event at Bolingbroke Mansion. They liked the flower display that they saw and the information that I had to share with those that attended.  At our meeting, Prerana told me that her wedding colors were bright pink, blue, and silver. She also mentioned that she was crazy about anything with "bling" and we gladly made that happen. What a fun party to work on!

Prerana and Nithin were married in a traditional Indian ceremony with a luncheon at her aunt's home in New Jersey on a Friday. But the couple also wanted to celebrate with a non-traditonal wedding party.  So they celebrated again at the Top of the Tower on a Saturday night. The room is amazing and the view of Philadelphia can't be beat. There are large glass windows surrounding the entire room. Just gorgeous!

 I had pink glass containers with matching votive candle holders that worked out perfectly for the cocktail tables. Notice the shimmering pink and silver medallion on the front of each glass holder.

Prerana loves everything bright, shiny, and with  lots of "bling", so I made sure she had it, while not breaking the bank.  Here are two views of the first type of low centerpiece I used at this wedding party.  I filled crystal lined containers with lots of white hydrangea, bright pink roses, and matching bright pink carnations. Favors in colored bags were added to all of the tables.

The second of the low centerpieces involved only nine hot pink roses! I added a bright pink and blue ribbon wrap and, of course, a bit of "bling" to the container. Contemporary, simple, and pretty!

To add some height to the room, I used very tall crystal candleholders to add that touch of crystal that Prerana loves.  Bright pink rose petals were scattered at the base along with more votive candles.

The evening was topped off with this fabulous sweet table. What a great ending to a great evening!

Thank you to Prerana and Nithin for having me be a part of your fabulous wedding party!  I hope the two of you live and long and happy life together!
