Holly came to me with a more unusual color palette: purple and pool/teal blue. She fell in love with dyed dendrobium orchids, which contain these colors, so I made as much use of them as I could. We were all so pleased with the results - especially Holly!
For Holly's bouquet, I used a mix of white roses, purple lisianthus, and lavender mini-carnations. Brian wore a matching rose boutonniere.
Holly's bridesmaids carried bouquets made up of white spray roses, lavender lisianthus and purple carnations - a variation of Holly's bouquet. I used lavender lisianthus for the groomsmen's boutonnieres.
At church I used primarily purple and white selections for the altar flowers. I was able to add the touch of blue with a big bow in front.
For the cocktail hour, I made up some fun martini glasses filled with blue bubbles and a white fuji mum. We made our own purple/silver wire heart stirrers for these pieces.
The first location to show off Holly's dendrobium orchids was her placecard table. I filled an Eiffel tower with purple bubbles and sprayed the orchids from the top. They looked great with Holly's purple placecards.
I did some tablescaping on half of the guest tables. Three different sizes of glass cylinders were filled with flowers in different forms. They were seated on silver chargers.
For the rest of the tables, I floated orchids in a glass bowl that had a pillar candle in the center decorated by Holly. I think she did a great job!.
Vases to hold bouquets were set up across the front of the head table alternating with candles. I scattered lavender rose petals to tie it all together.
I think that the cake turned out fantastic tying the colors together so nicely with ribbon and fresh purple lisianthus.
Congratulations to Holly and Brian. Thanks for making me a part of your fabulous wedding!
