Well, we did it! Our day started bright and early with our first trip to the venue for set up. Sally continued to make trips while Isabella and I set to work completing the personal flowers; bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, ring bearer pillows and flower girl baskets. A few photos of the bouquets, the groomsmen boutonnieres and the ring bearer pillows.
Once the personal flowers were completed we all headed to the venue to finish set-up. I love how our hydrangea tree turned out. We wired water tubed hydrangea to the branches of the tree that served as a backdrop for the ceremony. We also created a scrolled design with rose petals down the aisle.
For the cocktail hour space we tucked hydrangea around the base of two potted olive trees, had arrangements of hydrangea in mason jars for the cocktail tables and added large hand-tied bouquets to the stairs leading up to the reception site.
At the reception site the sweetheart table was draped with a garland of greens and hydrangea while the guest tables had centerpieces consisting of one large center arrangement and three smaller arrangements.
Once our set-up job was completed we were able to sneak a peak at the starting of the ceremony before heading back to our “studio” to unload and clean up. On our way to dinner we ran into the happy couple taking photos…so beautiful! The bride had her mothers wedding gown altered for the occasion.
We had a wonderful dinner on the deck of Madrona Bar & Grill and will head back to the reception site to grab a few things a bit later tonight.
We have had an incredible time in Roche Harbor. Tomorrow I will share a few final thoughts about the weekend!
