Wonderful wedding flowers

92912  Another auspicious double number wedding date…

Set on an historic Mennonite farm in Pennsylvania, the many  rectangular and round tables provided a wonderful canvas for the florist’s art.

The bridesmaids carried orange hued bouquets which lit up the overcast day and perfectly complemented their taupey-gray organza dresses.

This dramatic structure gave height to some of the round tables using mottled green/wine hydrangeas with green moss and sprigs of orchids scattered on curly willow branches.

A charming assortment of glass bottles are corralled into line and filled with roses, orchids, dried dock (tall brown), bupleurum (chartreuse flower left) hypericum berries, and grasses.

Various birdcages soared from other round tables.  They were filled with roses, orchids, dock, and blue/green eucalyptus which echoed the color of the cages.

This is the MOG’s own piece of driftwood nestled with more of the same plant material and some interesting grasses.  You can see the beautiful color of  the tablecloths.

A wonderful farm table served as head table.  Three arrangements were linked with birch branches.

These linked arrangements had even more combinations of materials – adding mushroom caps, dusty miller, white roses, mosses and seeded eucalyptus to the mix.

Split logs held floral still lifes of things farm and woodland.  The orange hypericum berries were sparks of color in this textural fantasy.

All of the designs created a magical setting – 92912 Double Happiness to the Handsome couple!
