The Casa di Fiori at Leola Village Inn was the venue of the day. After 3 days of gloomy, rainy, cold weather, we were happy for all those couples getting married today.
I forgot to take bouquet pictures, but we got a few of our reception centerpieces. The bride wanted earthy items and fall colors of oranges, purples and greens. The head bridal table was a large square for 16, so we filled the center from corner to corner with moss, orchids under glass and succulents with lots and lots of candles, plus large vases of Curly Willow branches with Cymbidium Orchids hanging from them.
Some tables had unique candle holders that we added Circus and Black Bacarra Roses and Orange Freesia with Green Hypericum. One table had all Freesia, one had all Orange Dahlias, one had all Green Spider Mums, and one with Purple Picasso Callas. All centerpieces were on a bed of moss with roses and candles.
The wonderful staff at Casa Di Fiori with Stephanie Lambert and Scott Hengst made it easy for us to work creatively on this unique wedding. We were given 'design freedom' by the bride and that is always so enjoyable, but it takes a great venue and staff to allow us to do our creative best.
My 'Team Beautiful' designers Joyce, and daughters Amy and Lindsay did me proud today-thanks girls!!!
It's always a pleasure to be teamed up with Jonnaysa and Diana from Planned Perfection.
Special Occasions provided the gorgeous linens.. they always do a great job suggesting the perfect linens for the venue. Thanks Cynthia !
And our best wishes and congratulations to Jessica and Greg. Wishing you a whole lifetime of love, health and happiness.
Later I'll blog our first 'halloween wedding!
