Last summer I had the pleasure of working with Leah and Mike on their Whidbey Island wedding flowers. Leah is a sunny, Seattle bride who wanted seasonal garden flowers with a friendly, comfortable feeling for her flowers. Her wedding colors were rose and turquoise. For the centerpiece, we used a collection of vintage vases in both clear and aqua, and filled them with Sunflowers, Scabiosa, Dahlia, Zinnia, and other summer favorites. I’m proud to say that all of them were sustainably grown in the Pacific Northwest (and mostly in the greater Seattle region). The bride’s dress was gorgeous – a lovely lace with a pale turquoise blue underlining. For the bridal bouquet I wanted flowers that would echo the dress, so I chose white Dahlia and fragrant pink Garden Roses as the main blooms, with accents of white Asclepias for texture and blue Tweedia to echo the color of the underlining. I finished it with Maidenhair Fern – I love how that delicate leaf looks with the lace. The bridesmaids all wore turqoise (David Bridal’s “Malibu” just in case you are shopping!), so for the bridesmaids bouquets I used pink Dahlias, blue Scabiosa, and golden Helenium. The vibrant colors match the intensity of the dress color. I think the flowers went well with the gorgeous sunny day they had! Don’t they all look so happy and pretty?! Aren’t the little flower girls cute in their flower crowns? The fans were a great touch; it was one of the hottest weekends of the summer! They held the festivities at Jenne Farm. This is the house; it is a B&B – a great spot for the bridal party to camp out! The big lawn is perfect for the ceremony. Behind the house there is a sweet, lovely little barn – great for first dances. Leah and her family did a great job decorating! The cake by JW Desserts was beautiful – and delicious! There are no photos of the food by Serendipity Catering, but I heard it was fabulous. Speaking of photos, thanks to Tonic studio for thier great images!
