We’re continuing our blog post from the other day on our most recent weekend wedding at the State Room. The style of the arrangements was garden-y, loose, and lovely in a color palette of chartreuse, lavenders, greens, and ivories. We did a few varied styles of arrangements with a different kind of fruit filling the interior of the large square glass containers: kumquats, clementines, lemons, and pears, all of which you can see below:

We love the look achieved by using different fruits – in some cases, the fruit brightened the overall look and feel of the arrangement (with the lemons especially); in others the fruit added a subtlety and nuance (as seen in the pear arrangements above).

And kumquats:

I know we posted an exhausting amount of photos for this wedding – but the images came out so pretty, I had the hardest time deciding!

A note about the flowers – we used a fairly large variety of flowers for these arrangements. Almost all arrangements had almost every kind of flower or foliage, but the trick was using them in different amounts so each felt unique and different from the next.

Purples were incorporated through the use of mokara orchids, scabiosa (or pincushion flower), and lisianthus.

Ivory through the viburnum, peonies, jasmine vine,  and mock orange.
