When bride Ginny and her groom Adam met with me to discuss wedding flowers I realized right away that this couple was easy going. Though they both had an idea of the overall feel they wanted for their big day, they were happy to hand the reigns over to the pro’s and let us “run with it”. This kind of approach always leads to the best results, since creative license allow us, the wedding professionals, to do what we do best.
Ginny wanted a soft and vintage inspired palette of peaches and blush with pops of coral for contrast. For her bouquet we selected the most perfect peach rose, the Juliette Garden Rose as the main focal point and accented it with coral cabbage roses, spray roses, blush dahlias and cinnamon cymbidium orchids. Hand tied with blush ribbon, wrapped with twine (as per the brides request) and finished with a vintage pin, her bouquet was truly luxurious!
Bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of the roses and dahlias in shades of peach, blush & coral. They contrasted beautifully with the blush bridesmaids dresses.
Originally the plan was to have an outdoor ceremony on the garden grounds of Graydon Hall Manor. Unfortunately mother nature was not co-operating, so the ceremony was transferred inside to the onsite chapel. Mason jars filled with hydrangea and roses hung from iron shepherds hooks lining the aisle with a scattering of rose petals.
The ballroom of Graydon Hall Manor is an intimate and romantic space, and the couple wanted to keep that feeling. Low bountiful centerpieces in silver containers graced each guest table with a combination of blush hydrangea, coral cabbage roses, peach spray roses and cymbidium orchids.
The head table was styled in the center of the room as a gallery table with floral placed along its center. Two large arrangements of hydrangea, roses, orchids and dahlias flanked the ends with lower arrangements in the center. Each bouquet (8 in total) was also incorporated, lined up in glass vases.
The two working fireplaces, filled with candles, is a beautiful feature of the venue. Small clusters of hydrangea and roses with groupings of floating candles and rose petals were set along each mantle for an added romantic touch.
We truly fell in love with the romantic nature of this wedding. Despite the rain, you could feel the warmth and love this couple and their friends had in every inch of the space. Best wishes on a long and happy marriage to Ginny & Adam!
