The beautiful purple lilac was absolutely gorgeous this past spring–this is one of those varieties that must be utilized as a seasonal flower–the tulips, lilac, roses,stock and anemone completed this monochromatic bouquet.
The bouquets were used as centerpieces during the reception–I am very mixed on this idea. I’ll elaborate on this more in a future post.
The flowers completed a very monochromatic look with the dresses– I will verify this – but I believe this shade of bridesmaid gown is Lapis.
I couldn’t pass up discussing this bouquet and the post editing.
This is a professional image– it is obvious since they are presented side by side that there has been some color correction.
The bouquet on the left looks more red, the one on the right more burgandy/magenta. Could be the natural light or could be post production–my point–be flexible, be specific but know that sometimes the flower colors in magazines, blogs, albums could be “corrected” to fit in context of the photo–talk to your florist about the reality of a “perfect” match!
We don’t see alot of 5 tier wedding cakes, but this one was definitely a show stoppper– I loved the simplicity of it–that is a sweet ruffle detail in the center of each tier –finished with the hydrangea wreath and a few flowers on the top–could be one of my new favorites.
Couldn’t pass up these peonies submerged–even prettier that I thought they would be–they looked like poofs of cotton candy suspended in the water–that sounds very technical:)
And a centerpiece–the pillar candle is lit with an LED, a requirement for this venue–
Purple has been and will be popular for a while–this was a spring wedding earlier this year-
I loved the combination of purple flowers– orchids, lisianthus, stock and sweet peas.
How great is this suit? I did not see this in person–our bride and groom chose to have the flowers picked up from our studio on the day of the wedding. This can sometimes be an option depending upon the scope of the event–in this case, personal flowers and 5 centerpieces.
