Some couples have a hard time deciding on a theme for their wedding. This bride asked herself “if Josh and I met on an old country road in 1952, what would our wedding look like?” I think this was a great way to define their theme! “A handful of wildflowers” was the outline for the centerpieces, with the bridal bouquet being a little more formal and suited to the bride’s vintage 50s gown. The color theme was purple and champagne; I chose to pair creamy spray roses with purple Lisanthus, Verbena and Phlox.
Late summer is the perfect time for a wedding using all sustainably and (almost all) locally grown materials. With the exception of the Roses for the bridal bouquet and Baby’s Breath for the bridesmaids, both of which were grown sustainably in California, all the flowers for this wedding came from small flower farms within 50 miles of Seattle, like Jello Mold Farm . I love supporting local agriculture! I chose Dahlias, Zinnia, ‘Black Knight’ and white Queen Anne’s Lace, Mint, Verbena and Phlox in tones of purples and creams. To add to the casual, rustic feeling, I made each centerpiece different. It was fun! Here’s a sampling – enjoy!
