The reception featured 4 different centerpieces–each designed for a specific area–when you hire a professional florist, they should be familiar with your venue to help make the perfect selections. The above centerpieces were low with the explosion of peacock feathers placed on the double runners to match the color scheme.
Another selection was the submerged cymbidium orchids-all the flowers were either green or white–the feathers provided the inspiration and the turquoise/teal:) was displayed in the fabrics.
The cake sat on a ring of peacock feather eyes while the top featured a small cluster of green flowers.
I loved the color of these bridesmaids dresses ( okay, I’ll admit, this is the same color that my attendants wore 2o years ago!)
Back then, we called it teal–today it is peacock blue/turquoise–anyway, I loved it paired with the bright green flowers! Yes, there are peacock feather accents featured in this event starting with the handles of the bridesmaids bouquets.
The brides bouquet featured white (albino) peacock feathers–she resourced them herself, so I do not know where they originated from, but I love her bridal bouquet–lush white peony, exquisite garden roses, scabiosa and ranunucla– gorgeous in all white–not to mention she is cute as a button!
We do not design many church pieces, so I was thrilled to design these arrangements– not only do they feature peacock feathers but they have a perfect touch of formality and flare for this Catholic sanctuary.
this is a great example of bridesmaids having flowers similar to the bride. I am asked all the time – should bride and bridesmaids be the same or different. I always have a few things I take into consideration, but ultimately it is the bride’s decision–some brides have a vision of all white including the flowers, sometimes it includes a pop of color.
The ceremony– one of our favorite spots- the gazebo at Vintage Villas.
Comple with wedding cake–I thought this was a very unusual pattern– with all the pattern on the cake, the flowers were just a final complement.
