Wait, when are wildflowers not pretty? That was a bit of our inspiration in this bouquet from late August with color palette of plums, peaches, load and loads of pretty greens and touches of bright pink.

Bride’s Bouquet – we both just loved this bouquet, Apryl added Akebia vine for air movement, I think that add so much. Old fashioned scabiosa or pin-cushion flower for the dark colorful touches and of course the lovely Juliet garden rose that is regular fave.

And another shot, because it’s too hard to pick just one pretty picture.

Reception Flowers – we did a lovely theme of romantic garden flower surrounded with mercury glass candles and lanterns for the wedding which took place at Glen Magna Farm in Danver. Also the site of the Danvers Historical Society, this lovely old gentleman’s farm has the most beautiful gardens and property, perfect for a tent wedding.

The color palette for the tent was a bit softer with antique blue-green hydrangea that picked up on the lovely steel color of the lines, touches of peach and lavender, and lots of green bits.

I just liked this pretty photo of the table flowers with the lovely front porch at Glen Magna a bit blurry but lovely.

And a parting photograph of one of the table designs with the most beautiful sky-blue hydrangea. I’d love to sleep on a pillow made of those…

Our thanks and best wishes to Meredith and Brian!
