Nicole and Tyler were married on Saturday in a ceremony at the First Baptist church followed by a lavish reception at The 23rd Floor. What a gorgeous couple! Their colors were green and black with accents of white. Design wise, this has been one of my favorite weddings of the season. It will eventually make it on my featured weddings page...if I ever find the time to update the site.
The bride's bouquet was simple and clean -- Akito roses with a collar of green hypericum and white bouvardia. The bridesmaids' carried bouquets of Super Green and Akito roses, Star-of-Bethlehem, hypericum berries, and green Fuji mums. The flower girls carried pomanders of green kermits, which matched the wedding party's boutonnieres of kermits, berries, and bear grass. Fast forward to the reception and we had three separate table designs. Design #1 was a grouping of three square vases: green goddess calla lilies, and either a mass of green hydrangea with Akito pave' roses, or a mass of white snowball mums with Super Green pave' roses. Design #2 was a mixed arrangement of hydrangea, snowballs, aspidistra leaves, green goddess and white callas, Akito and Super Green roses, chocolate cosmos, white bouvardia, Star-of Bethlehem, green hypericum, kermits, Bells of Ireland, Camillia, seeded eucalyptus, buplerum, and ruskus (phew!!!). Design #3 was a large cube containing black river rock with a floating snowball and cosmo nestled among Bells of Ireland florets. And lots and lots and lots of candles -- everywhere! (I think we provided somewhere in the ballpark of 85 candles in various sized cubes...) Kathy from An Unforgettable Event coordinated this wedding and did a fabulous job! Big thanks to Kate Benson who was a second shooter on this wedding and provided the amazing wedding party photos.
