2 Wedding Weekend

We started on Friday with Meredith and Dan's wedding in Mt. Joy at St. Mark's UM Church. It's a beautiful old church with stained glass windows and curved pews. Here are some details. Spray rose petals fill lacey cones in a white pail for the exit photo. Mini bouquets of green Cymbidium Orchids for the Mothers.Loading up the van with the flowers.....................
Bouquets for the Bridesmaids were blue Hydrangea, peach roses, green Orchids and Hypericum.

Bride's bouquet is white roses, white mini Callas with tiny crystals and white Cymbidium Orchids.
Back at the shop, Amy is preparing the Curly Willow branches with Orchids for centerpieces.

Reception decorating for this wedding was so much fun. It's energizing playing 'beat the clock' to glue hundreds of Orchids on branches and Lily grass before the guests arrive. The bridal table had white Orchids and the guest tables had green Orchids.
Another one of Rene's masterpieces.........always a work of art! (Bella Manse)

Hamilton Ballroom

Bride's Bouquet, being held by a bridesmaid, has her late grandmothers tennis bracelet and heart pendant attached to her stems. Nicole misses her grandma very much and wanted to take something of hers with her down the aisle. Her bouquet was simply white Dendrobium Orchids.

Bridesmaids carried bouquets of Purple Hydrangea, Alstromeria, Cymbidium Orchids and Carnations. The colors looked beautiful with their periwinkle dresses.

Just a couple reception pics. before my batteries gave out. No cake pictures, but once again, Rene of Bella Manse made a beautiful cake with purple Hydrangeas on the top and layers.

The delicate Smilax garland is a dainty tropical vine. We added orchids all the way across the long Bridal table with lots of green votive candles.

The popular Pilsner Vase with a submersible light and a Blue Bon Dendrobium Orchid submersed inside the vase of water.
**Thanks to Amy and Lynne for making this a successful 2-wedding weekend.
Caterer: Old Greenfield Inn-always a nice staff and the fare looks and smells wonderful.
