The Land of Weddings: September

School has started, there is a chill in the air and although I wish for just a bit more sunshine and warm weather I welcome the opportunity to curl up with a cup of java and catch up on the paperwork, review the summer season and dream a bit. I recently ran into a friend and we were chatting about how quickly the summer months flew by and yes, I was reminded that I didn’t post anything in August. But sometimes that is how it goes. August was incredible and in the next month or so I will take you back to those events but right now I will highlight the 2 events I did on Labor Day weekend, September 4th & 5th.
The ceremony for the September 4th wedding took place at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church. The inside is beautiful and ornate so we just did a few pew swags at the front rows. Unfortunately I was unable to get a photo of these hanging inside. Below is a photo of the outside of Holy Rosary as well as the red orchid swags.
The reception took place at the Hotel Murano. We delivered the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres to the hotel and set-up the ballroom.
Brides Bouquet:  black bacccara roses, schwarzwalder mini callas, red mokara orchids, fern curls and dried lotus pods
Bridesmaids Bouquets: black baccara roses, schwarzwalder and red mini callas, fern curls and dried lotus pods
Boutonnieres
Mother’s Corsage: designed on a keepsake pearl bracelet
Centerpieces: glass cylinders with black baccara roses and a floating candle

On the 5th I had the opportunity to work at Kensington Gardens.  The colors were smoky blue and white so we brought in blue hydrangea and a variety of white flowers along with white ostrich feathers and peacock feathers.

Brides Bouquet: white asiatic lilies, white mini callas, white roses and stephanotis surrounded by white ostrich feathers.
Bridesmaid Bouquet: blue hydrangea, white asiatic lilies, white mini callas, white roses and peacock feathers.

The boutonnieres and corsages were accented with peacock feathers except for the grooms which had a white ostrich feather as an accent.  The boutonnieres are shown below (left) as well as the corsages (right).

For the ceremony we used swags of blue hydrangea and peacock feathers at the ends of the rows and also draped white and navy tulle down the aisle.

It was wonderful to be a part of these events.  I wish much happiness to these beautiful couples.
