Color and Palette of Wedding:
Who says getting married in the fall you need to chose gold, reds, and oranges for your colors? Explore the color palette of the wedding we just finished yesterday that had a gorgeous color palette of magentas, purples, greens and silvers.
The couple also wanted to incorporate ‘green’ aspects wherever possible so we focused our flower choices on those that could mostly be found locally – dahlias, mint, dusty miller, and lavender all came from local growers.
The Bride’s Bouquet
We love this bouquet, primarily comprised of deep purples, bright magentas, silvers, and greens – then accented with one of the most fragrant, special, and highly prized flowers – gardenias.
The Table Design
The venue was unbelievably elegant – the Commandant’s House in the Charlestown Naval Shipyard. With its gorgeous rooms, tall ceilings, fireplaces and chandeliers, we went for a mix of two styles of table arrangements, Apryl and I love to do this, it gives a room a varied and subtle appearance. One design used pedestal iron containers filled with moss and “Cafe au Lait” Dahlias, magenta and purple dahlias, ornamental cabbage, purple smokebush, “Mokara” orchids in magenta and purple, mint, lavender, and dusty miller. We also found the most incredible passion flower vine that we intertwined on each piece.
The other table design involved potted lavender topiaries potted in pedestal containers filled with moss and surrounded by bud vases filled with dahlias, nerine lilies, and mint. These added a charming, slightly whimsical touch to the overall design.
The Other Personal Flowers
We worked with many of the same flowers in the bride’s bouquet and table arrangements for the rest of the wedding party. The Maid of Honor’s bouquet is below along with the darling gardenia handheld corsage for the bride’s mother.
I took WAY too many photos yesterday and had a hard time deciding which ones to include, so we’ll end with a few more from the reception at the Commandant’s House.
