Amy & Jamie - Fabulous Felt Flowers

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this wedding.  Everything about it. I loved the bride.  I loved her hidden talent.  I loved the venue.  I loved the colors.  And I loved how the flowers turned out!

Amy decided on a color palette of green, white, and blue with touches of lavender and purple.  Amy's bouquet contained  a wide variety of flowers including Picasso calla lilies (my favorite calla lily) and purple lisianthus - my favorite flower.  Blue was represented by simply adding pins to the stephanotis.  I love that!  As per Amy's request, I added a wooden bracelet around the stems.  Jamie wore a Picasso calla lily boutonniere.

Bridesmaids carried lavender, green, and white bouquets.  I used the lavender cushion mums for the groomsmen.

Meadowlands Country Club has a gorgeous outdoor space for ceremonies.  I love the fountain.  In front of it, I placed two pedestals holding mossed, wire urns full of green, white, lavender, and blue flowers.  Down the aisle I filled my rental white baskets with lavender and white flowers.  Such a pretty setting!  A lot of the outside plantings at the club included white, lavender, and purple flowers - it's like we planned it that way!

When I said that Amy had a hidden talent, I meant it.  She creates daffodils from felt and material.  So naturally, I put her to work.  I filled glass squares with wheat grass and three of Amy's daffodils for the cocktail tables.  Look how many she made!  How cute are these?

I used a replica of an old, old dark green urn for the placecard table.

One of my favorite things about this wedding was how open Amy was to ideas.  We utilized some pretty unique containers for this wedding.  Some tables sported green mason jars of flowers.  I used some wonderful green crocks that I had for one third of the tables.  And for the rest of the tables we used some fabulous green jugs spraying flowers and grass!

I placed two small, green ceramic vases on the sweetheart table for a touch of color.

Thanks so much to Amy and Jamie for having me help them with their wedding flowers.  I had a great time working with Amy and was so pleased as to how everything came out.  I wish the two of you much love and happiness!!
