On November 28th I had the pleasure of creating the flowers for a wedding at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma. The bride and groom share a love for succulents, fall, and white ostrich feathers. In the photos below these elements are represented.
The brides bouquet (above) was very soft in color. Peach mini calla lilies, cream roses with yellow undertones, velvety succulents, seeded eucalyptus, fern curls, curly willow, and berries. The bouquet was wrapped with thin bark and tied with velvet ribbon.
Each bridesmaid in the wedding wore a different dress so I made a different bouquet for each of them and they got to choose which one they wanted. The flowers I pulled from were: mango mini calla lilies, orange and yellow bi-color roses, orange freesia, red hypericum berries, fern curls, seeded eucalyptus, and preserved fall leaves. Like the brides bouquet, the handles were wrapped with thin bark and tied with velvet ribbon.
For the centerpieces, we elected to keep them all tall and in beautiful “flower tower” vases.
Half of the tables had centerpieces made up of curly willow and orange vanda orchids (above). I wired the orchids to the branches and also to longer pieces of brown bullion wire (by Smithers Oasis). I hung the strands of orchids from the branches.
The other half of the tables had centerpieces of white ostrich feathers and red james storei orchids (below). The white ostrich feather holds special meaning for the bride and groom of this wedding as they purchased one on their first date.
What a pleasure to share in part of this memorable day. Congrats to a beautiful couple!
