A touch of Country French for this wedding.

Putting this wedding together was fun because it was unusual. The bride’s reception was outside on long tables with burlap table runners and a mountain venue. A collection of old jars; canning jars and blue vases grouped together in little clusters along the table were her choices for centerpieces. She asked for a big variety of blooms and wanted all the arrangements to look casual and unplanned.

To insure there was enough bulk and color we ordered three colors of stock and dark pink spray roses, then for whimsy and a wildflower look we added a variety of things from lily grass to sweet peas, a total of twenty seven different flowers and greens.

The bridal bouquet remained somewhat traditional with all white flowers but arranged casually as though she had gathered things herself from a field. Because her gown was dressy, her bouquet was stem wrapped in ivory satin and pearl studs. . Seven different white flowers were used in her bouquet, featuring white lisianthus, white sweet peas, veronica and phlox, star of Bethlehem, ranunculous and lily grass.

Her bridesmaid’s bouquets were in all lavender with fresh lavender, sweet peas and lily grass in very casual arrangements.

The bride’s escort cards were very colorful and a collection of busy patterns so we repeated all those colors in the table centerpieces.
