Back in December I started to work with a sweet couple for their January wedding at Lakeside Ranch in Inverness. They hired me for their reception tables, vintage dish settings, ceremony design, a photo booth, and all of their wedding flowers. We had less than 6 weeks to pull everything together, but I was excited! There were two very important elements, a set of swinging white doors, and a large cross for the Ceremony area. Both items were NOT in our collection. Thanks to my talented husband, we now have both! When the bride came over to view our inventory, I was able to give her some options of how we could set her reception tables. That day I put together a sample set up for her, you can view it HERE. I must say I was sooooo happy to see it all together. For brides who come to us with a smaller floral budget, or not really knowing IF they want flowers, or if they like flowers, but "their not really that important", we offer limited services to help in this situation. A budget saving tip is instead of having a large variety of flowers, stick to a small selection of just a few types. My personal preference is always creative affordable ways to use fresh flowers, verses silks! We were able to help this bride by doing all of her flowers. We used dark red roses with a mix of blush spray roses, cedar, burgundy Hypericum berries and my personal favorite Silver Dollar Eucalyptus which offers a lovely texture. We used different vintage crochet pieces down the center of the tables for a runner. Fourteen tables, thank goodness we have lots of crochet pieces in our inventory! Instead of a thicker garland, the bride requested stems of greenery on the table which was really pretty! Also used were vintage brass and silver pieces. I love how the dish settings turned out! We used a mix of white, gold, pink and red dishes. The head table had beautiful red and pink colored goblets. For the ceremony, the bride loved a photo from another ceremony we did were we used wooden stumps, so we decorated the aisle of the ceremony with wood stumps with white lanterns and other pink and red items. We hung a garland on the white doors the bride entered through, a small table for communion, and the cross looked lovely front and center decorated with flowers. It was a beautiful wedding, and I feel so honored to be apart of the creative process!
