Orchids and more Orchids for Spring Wedding #2

 The gorgeous Phalaenopsis Orchid, otherwise known as Moth Orchids.  What could be more beautiful for a bride than these?
  This week's wedding took place at St. John Neumann Church with the reception at the Historic Strasburg Inn.  I'm excitedly waiting for Jamie of Epic Photography to post all the pictures.
  Bridesmaids wore bright blue and carried white Dendrobiums, Altar arrangements- also Dendrobiums. Centerpieces were both Dendrobium and Cymbidium Orchids- all in white.
            Congratulations to Amy and Mike.  What a beautiful couple!
Next week's wedding will be very colorful and taking place at Lime Spring Farm. It's gonna be gorgeous!

First Spring Wedding

Cork Factory weddings are so warm and intimate. With it's brick walls and lots of natural light, it can wear any color palette you would like for a wedding.  Harry and Kathy have a great love of nature; so elements of that were seen all over the room. The cake stand made of a slice of a large tree, and the table numbers were made of slices of smaller trees.  Lots of candle- filled lanterns added an amber glow to the rooms.
We used moss and pebbles and turkey feathers (compliments of the groom!).
Bridesmaids wore moss green dresses.  A nature inspired all green and white wedding for our first one of the season.  With the fragrance of lots and lots of Tulips in my shop, I didn't mind working a single bit!

The wedding cake and cupcakes were made by Jasmine Clouser of Couture Cakery. in Camp Hill

Wedding Coordinator was Leah McMaster of Fashionable Affair 

The Bride carried a bouquet of white Hydrangeas, white Tulips and White Lisianthus with green Hypericum.
The Bridesmaids bouquets were white Tulips, Hypericum and Curly Willow tips.
Best wishes for a lifetime of married bliss to Kathy and Harry!

Let the 2010 Wedding Season Begin!

I have been waiting for this week since Christmas was over!  Time to get my hands on all the beautiful flowers that this year's brides have carefully chosen.  I haven't had time to post blogs in a long time because
consultations, quotes, contracts, orders, shopping for new items to offer....on, and on.
  Yesterday was like opening Christmas packages as the gorgeous white Tulips, Hydrangeas, Roses and Lisianthus arrived. A breath of Spring, and my studio is happy once again!  This week's wedding is at the Cork Factory Hotel;  the hottest new venue where we LOVE to work.  We'll be there several times this season.  I'll be posting pictures and you'll be able to see why so many couples are having their reception there. 
  On a personal note:     My little grandson Hudson is 2 years old today!!  He's quite the little man already.  He has re-named me "Gig-ee".  I'll post his birthday pic. tonite after the party.

My what a good birthday!
