Flower Friday! A Beautiful Backyard Wedding

12:12 PM

Most couples really touch my heart but this wedding was so amazing for me because the bride gave me complete creative freedom. When I would run something by her she would respond; "If you like it I know I will!" The wedding was at their fabulous home with the most manicured grounds I have ever scene. It made a perfect backdrop for the elegant but laid back vibe of the wedding.

The flowers were purples, whites and greens in mason jars and eclectic vintage glasses. The blooms are roses, stock, wax flower and football mums. 

The bride's bouquet was made entirely of calla lilies which are her favorite flower. I made the groom's boutonniere a calla as well. 

 The wedding arch was covered with curly willow and had hanging mason jars int he center filled with flowers.

 Two large pieces on pedestals marked the beginning of the aisle.

 Although I didn't make the desserts I had to show them due to their out of this world deliciousness! The catering Sterling Affair was perfect. These cake pops still haunt my dreams!

The distressed wedding sign courtesy of my husband was a great way to greet guests. Much better than the usual Valet Parking sign.

 A very talented friend of mine always makes me proud with her fabulous parties! Her most recent one was a surprise birthday party for her Fashionista mom. Take a look at this amazing dessert table that was the center of the party…

She made (yes, SHE MADE) cake pops and chocolate covered Oreos which were displayed in pretty hat boxes. She ordered from etsy cupcakes and mini fondant purses in Dooney and Burke and Coach!
