This vibrant wedding full of summery flowers took place at the uncle of the groom. Luckily, the weather couldn't of been more perfect. Not too hot, with a little breeze. The couple exchanged vows under the pergolia which we adorned with an abundance of green hydrangea, 'milva' and 'hot lady' roses with just a touch of Italian ruscus greenery. Those perfect colors of lime, melon and raspberry making your senses come alive with feelings of summer.
I always say it's a great idea to use what ever is already on site at the location and add to it. The surroundings of this entire property were simply stunning! The oversized pergola made a wonderful backdrop for the couple, so we just added a ton of seasonal flowers.
For the flower girl, we had a custom designed mango color raw silk purse with Swarovski beading which was from Belle Bags. Then, simply added orange mokara orchids. A lovely keepsake for the flower girl and something rather unique.
The bride carried an absolutely stunning collection of mango color mini calla lilies, cinnamon color cymbidium orchids, 'milva' and a few 'hot lady' roses. We wrapped with a dark copper ribbon and added ivory raw silk French knot detailing. Simple yet so very dramatic! The gentlemen's boutonnieres were simple, with a single mango color calla lily wrapped with galax leaf and twisted with a touch of wire.
