The turn of the year is a good time to reflect. As I look back over 2012, I realize that in the busy-ness of the summer there are some weddings that stand out whose photos I never got around to posting! One of those was the July wedding of Breanne and Andrew. Breanne is a beautiful Whidbey Island girl who was a pleasure to work with. She always wore a smile; she knew what she wanted and gave me the creative control to provide it to her. She and Andrew got married at the Lynnwood Convention Center. The theme was peach, pearl and blush with accents of silver. All these gorgeous photos are compliments of Travis Cobb of Fragile Works Gallery in Dallas, Texas, a friend of the bride and groom.
Breanne’s bouquet featured purplish Succulents, Roses in peach, pink and cream (“pearl”), with accents of Lamb’s Ear to reinforce the pearl theme and sprigs of pink Lysimachia.
The Bridesmaids wore beautiful blush dresses and carried bouquets of Rose, Lysimachia, Hydrangea and Artemesia, wrapped in Hosta leaves.
I had a blast making the centerpieces. There were three styles of centerpieces. One was a lush arrangement of Roses, Hydrangea, white Sweet Pea and Scabiosa that floated atop a glass trumpet, so seated guests could see each other below the lovely tendrils. Small silver spheres on the table held singular elements from the mixed bouquet above.
The other centerpieces were lower, either a simple dish of mixed flowers or a clustered grouping of bud vases with submerged Baby’s Breath & floating candles with singular stems of pink Larkspur, Dahlias, Sweetheart Roses.
Finally I would like to mention that most of the flowers were sustainably grown! Many were locally grown, and some even came from my own Whidbey Island garden. It was among my favorite weddings of the summer!
