Winter Wedding #1

This is the Winter Wedding season for us, and we begin with Amy and Matt's wedding which was held at Santee Chapel. The reception was at the Eden Resort's Grand Ballroom. Amy's bouquet was wrapped with her Grandfather's necktie. Such a sweet way to remember a loved one. The tie matched the Swartwalder Mini Callas perfectly. The bridesmaids wore a platinum colored dress and carried spheres of burgundy Mini-Carnations and white Hypericum, studded with crystal accents-(we forgot to take a picture of them!). I love adding fluffy white feathers to winter bouquets. It looks like a warm furry muff.

Toss Bouquet made with white Lisianthus and white Hypericum.

Some centerpieces were a standard Calla Lily in a pilsner vase with crushed ice and a submersible light down inside and surrounded by blue, silver and white Christmas balls. Snowflakes hung from the vases. The table number cards stood in beautiful snowflake stands.

The other centerpieces were glass balls inside of sphere -shaped bowls with Hydrangea, Spider Mums and frosty-pearl berries. I'm not a big fan of mirrors, but this is when a mirror is really worth using!
Another winter wedding to do this week before Christmas.....then a little break.
Try to slow down a little bit to savor this wonderful time of the year. (Yep, I need to take my own advice!) Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-laaaa!
