Fall has finally arrived here in New Jersey and PA. With temps in the low 50's in the early am and sunny skies, it's the perfect time of year for a wedding. Yesterday we had the pleasure of creating pretty floral designs for bride Jennifer and her now husband Eric. It took a bit of work but finally their vision was transformed into flowers and as you'll see below, with wonderful success! Below is Jennifer's bridal bouquet. Green garden roses (called Super Green), white hydrangea, ranuculus, gardenias and touches of silvery dusty miller. Hand tied for a compact design, we can't wait to see her professional photos!
Now here is where the colors come in wow, what colors they were. Deep blue delphinium, orange spray roses (that were a bit two toned, similar to Circus Roses), Santana roses which were a deep orange, orange mokara orchids, yellow craspedia (billy balls) and accents of dusty miller. Each bouquet had their stems wrapped in an antique gold ribbon secured with tiny gold pins.
Next came the amazing floral centerpieces. With much discussion on the size and complexity of the arrangements we decided on rich red Black Magic roses, Circus roses (2 toned), more of those two tones spray called Orange Mambo, blue thistle, orange dahlias, red hypericum berries, craspedia, deep blue thistle, elegant ruscus foliage and draping ivy trails. All were created in cream colored ceramic compotes that have an intricate scrolling design. We thought the centerpieces were perfect for the venue which was the Brownstone up in Patterson, NJ.
Blues, reds, golden yellows and deep rich orange, what an elegant and vibrant color combination. Our guess is that her floral arrangements will be remembered for a long time to come!
