Christie & Bill in Beautiful Cape May

Christie is the second sister's wedding that I worked on from one of my favorite families.  I was sooo happy to work with her and ended up in Cape May for a gorgeous weekend. Hey, if I'm going to travel that far I'm going to take a mini-vacation too!

The shore is all about soft colors - pink, white, and aqua blue - and hydrangeas - and we used a LOT of those.  The combination turned out to be really beautiful.

For her bouquet, Christie chose soft pink roses with green hypericum berries to contrast and some Queen Anne's lace for softness.

Her bridesmaids carried the same soft pink roses combined with white lisianthus. I had fun with the groomsmens' shell boutonnieres.

It was a very windy day in Cape May, so the ceremony flowers were brought down to the beach much later in the day.  I had to get the blue in those so we made bows!

There were several cocktail tables both inside and outside of the Hotel Alcott.  I painted boxes an aqua blue - spray painted shells silver - and added hydrangea to them.  What a great place to relax and have a drink!

I added shells to the vase upon which I did an pink and white arrangement for the placecard table. I felt like Queen Anne's lace belonged in Victorian Cape May!

Carolyn and Bill used an underlying baseball theme - so their tables were named after their favorite players . For half of the tables I used glass squares of white hydrangea.  I tucked in pink mini-carnations along with shells among the flowers.  I used pink hydrangea with white carnations on the other half of the tables and filled those squares with aqua blue acrylics.

Again I used my little blue boxes to decorate the sweetheart table.  I added spray roses to the hydrangea.

A huge THANK YOU to Christie and Bill for having me help them with their wedding. Not only were you wonderful to work with, the whole weekend turned out to be wonderful!.  I wish your life together to be as fabulous as your wedding day!
