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.

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.
