Sunflowers are just one of those flowers that make every one smile. They're bold and they're bright! When you pair up their beautiful golden yellow color with red and bright blue - I believe you then have a party! It's such a terrific color combination. So when Lucy told me that this was her color palette and she wanted sunflowers all over her wedding - I was only too happy and delighted to oblige!
Lucy's bouquet was a large beautiful grouping of sunflowers, blue delphinium, blue iris, red hypericum berries, and solidago all wrapped up in burlap and lace. Kevin's boutonniere consisted of Viking mums - which I think look like little baby sunflowers - and hypericum berries.
Bridesmaids' bouquets also were made up with sunflowers and solidago, but I added red roses and cornflower as well. Groomsmen wore boutonnieres of Viking mums.
Lucy had to have sunflowers down her ceremony aisle, so we filled her mason jars with just that and added delphinium and hypericum berries. These were later re-distributed in various locations inside the reception.
Lucy came to me with a lot of jars. We decided to use her jelly jars for the cocktail tables. I filled these with blue hydrangea and Viking mums.
I also own a wonderful replica vintage can with sunflowers on the front. I knew this was perfect for this wedding and filled it with flowers for the placecard table. This container is available for rental or sale.
We filled Lucy's mason jars for the guest tables with a combination of sunflowers and other blue and red flowers. Lucy used chalkboard labels for her table numbers.
For the sweetheart table, I used two of Lucy's blue mason jars and filled them with similar flowers.
Lucy added a lot of wonderful details to her wedding. I really liked the way she displayed her memory photographs. I used up her blue jars for this table and filled them with all white flowers.
Lucy and Kevin's cake had not yet arrived but I had to snap a picture of her topper of their little family. How cute is this?
And lastly, this is one detail I have never seen before. I love the sign on the toss bouquet jar!
What an adorable, happy wedding. I hope the two of you are always as happy as you were on your special day.
