The beauty of a bloom is sometimes best highlighted by featuring it alone. While baby’s breath earned a not so nice reputation in weddings back in the 80’s it has made a HUGE comeback as a a stand alone flower portraying a strong vintage quality. This bloom was the focus for a gorgeous wedding at the Liberty Grand for our couple Alicia and Sheldon.
Ironically the ONLY element of this wedding that wasn’t baby’s breath was the bridal bouquet. A combination of hydrangea, white roses, blush spray roses and white calla lilies created something special for bride Alicia.
EVERYTHING else about this wedding was baby’s breath! Bridesmaids carried bouquets of the featured flower, baby’s breath, tied with ivory ribbon and detailed with gold crystal trim and pearls, carrying the vintage theme. Groomsmen wore baby’s breath boutonnieres as well.
The Artifacts Room at The Liberty Grand was the site for both the ceremony and reception. For the ceremony Daniel Barker House of Design created a magnificent canopy at the altar. Trailing up from the floor to the tie backs we placed clouds of baby’s breath to create a whimsical detail. The aisle was lined with flickering candles and more baby’s breath of course!
While cocktails happened in the front portion of the room, the room was flipped for the reception. Always a feat in itself as we only have an hour to transform the space! Tables featured a pewter candelabra with a globe of baby’s breath on top. These were placed on mirrored boxes also filled with baby’s breath and lots of pearl wrapped votive candles.
The long head table was divided into a sweetheart table for the couple on a riser and one long table for the bridal party. Framing the sweetheart table was a birch log frame covered in more baby’s breath. Filling in along the front of both tables was more of our featured flower and lots of candles too. The effect was breath taking!
A huge congratulations to Alicia and Sheldon on their wedding and a lifetime of happiness to you both! We were so happy to hear how thrilled you were with your baby’s breath filled wedding day!
