Carolyn's bouquet consisted of a mix of orange and purple flowers including Picasso calla lilies, silver brunia, orange ranunculus, lavender roses, purple lisianthus and white freesia. If you look closely you'll see the rhinestones among her flowers. Dan wore a calla lily boutonniere.
Bridesmaids carried bouquets of orange roses, lavender lisianthus, and purple Moon carnations. Groomsmen wore lisianthus boutonnieres.
The ceremony was held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Phoenixville.
When you enter Rivercrest you'll walk through a small room and then into a multi-purpose room where the cocktail hour is typically held. There is also a small seating area where people can relax. A fireplace is at the far end has a lovely mantle which we decorated for the Fall. Carolyn brought in sparkly pumpkins.
Vases surrounded in purple ribbon - and a silver buckle - were placed on the inside cocktail tables. I used purple baskets to hold hydrangea on the outside tables. I hesitate to use glass outside.
I really liked Carolyn's memory table display. The inscribed candle holder was lovely. We added a bit of color with rose petals and a vase of flowers.
I used two varieties of orchids in the placecard table arrangement that has a sparkly candle holder to each side.
We used four different designs for the guest tables. The first were my favorite. I have silver/crystal table candleabras which I think are very pretty. Instead of using 5 candles in the 5 holders - I made round pomanders of flowers in two of them. I just love how this looks!
On the second set of tables we put a mix of flowers in some pretty silver compote holders to which I added hanging crystals to match the chandelier crystals.
Buckles again appeared on purple ribbon surrounding the glass cylinders of hydrangea, roses, and Moon carnations. I also wove crystals through the hydrangea.
Finally we added some tall pieces to the tables. These consisted of tall glass cylinders decorated with wide rings of purple ribbon and added rhinestone bands. I used a mix of flowers on the top and ended with sprouting orange ting ting.
Carolyn used lettered mugs to spell LOVE on her sweetheart table. I filled them with matching flowers as well.
Bridesmaids' bouquets were put in vases of water after their entrance. We had them ready and waiting for the flowers in vases surrounded in purple ribbon with buckles, of course!
Lastly, the cake! It was gorgeous! The topper of the couple with their pets is so unique. And the "icing on the cake" is the buckle on the middle layer.
Thank you Carolyn and Dan for having me help you with your wedding decor. It was a pleasure to work with you. Your thought and details added such a personal touch to your special day. Congratulations!
