Happy color, Happy day!

The setting is a beautiful property where the bride grew up.  Leslie Gilbert photographed the day.
The bridesmaids wore 'Raspberry Lipstick' colored dresses, so the bride chose purple and raspberry flowers.  We used Stock and hot pink & Red Peonies.Colorful centerpieces using oranges, grapes and all sorts of flowers went so well at Casa di Fiori at Leola Village.The bride's bouquet was hot pink Peonies, Orange Mokara Orchids, green mini Cymbidium Orchids, red Spray Roses and purple mini Callas.
The aisle was lined with daisy heads.  The flower girl carried a sphere of white daisies.  Lots more pictures to follow later.

Two beautiful outdoor weddings.

Wedding One was in Mechanicsburg at the Orris House Inn.
The bride carried a bouquet of white Peonies, white Sweet Peas and Champagne Roses.
It was a vintage style wedding, with no attendants, just simply the Bride and Groom.
Kate brought me a vintage brooch that her grandmother allowed her to
"borrow for something blue".  Her cake is the last picture at the bottom with the Peonies on it. Next, to the  Cameron Estate for
 another outdoor wedding. The bride carried a bouquet of white Roses, Angelique Tulips, Sweet Peas, white Dendrobium Orchids, and Lilies of the Valley.
Her bridesmaids wore light pink and carried bouquets of Miracle Roses, Angelique Tulips and Privet Berries.  Bridesmaids bouquet stems were wrapped in natural leaves and bound with silver wire.
Dear friends, Kris and John of  KMPhotography were documenting the day; lucky for Kari and Kyle!
Wedding planner Lori Hemphill took care of all the details.

I don't know who to give credit to for this beautiful cake at Orris House Inn, (but Jessie put the Peonies on).
More pictures to come later.......
Thank you to Amy, Lynne and Jessie for 2 jobs well done!  Oh, how I love what I do!
Till next week................ta ta for now.

Spring Wedding #3

The Bride carried Yves Piaget Garden Roses, Sweet Peas, Ranunculus, Parrot Tulips, Lilies of the Valley and Daffodils. 
Lime Spring Farm was the location for Katie and Nick's beautiful May Day wedding.
The bridesmaids wore J. Crew dresses in my favorite color:  ........coral
   My workshop had the fragrance of heaven with Sweet Peas, Daffodils, French and Parrot Tulips, Garden Roses, Freesia, Lilies of the Valley, Ranunculus, Hydrangeas.  Katie chose all my personal favorite flowers, and colors. 
The bride and her dad  planted Daffodils together around their home since she was a little girl; dreaming of someday having those very daffodils for her wedding day.  Well, they bloomed about 3 weeks too early- so in a desperate effort to save those flowers; Katie, her mom and I spent an evening cutting, wrapping and refrigerating those unbloomed stems in hopes that in almost a month they would still have enough life in them to bloom for her wedding day. Well, some of them did make it.  Enough for a bridesmaids bouquet, some for Katie to carry, some for her mom to carry and a couple for each centerpiece.  We were elated that it worked!  It was sentimentally very important to Katie.

  We hung spheres of flowers with long ribbons on either side of the ceremony pergola.  Rose petals lined the aisle, and a large "V" for their new last name was written in rose petals.

Each bridesmaid carried a different color and flower.  Pink Ranunculus and Lamb's Ear, Orange Parrot Tulips, Purple Sweet Peas, and Yellow Daffodils.

KMphotography was there to document the day.  Katie and Nick will surely LOVE their wedding pictures with Kris and John behind the camera!

House of  Clarendon provided the wedding cake- which hadn't arrived when I left, so I didn't get a picture, but I'm sure it was beautiful.

Vivian Lando of Premier Planners was the wedding coordinator.

Special Occasions supplied the luxe linens.
Shumaker PDT provided special lighting and pole coverings for the tent.
(before) Cosmos
Mother of the Bride bouquet.
Blog break next week- It's Mother's Day weekend- and I get a little break.  Next wedding is May 15th at Cameron Estates and Orris House Inn.
