Color Trend: Purple and Green

I can't even begin to count how many weddings we have had this season with these colors.  It seems that green is the color of the decade, and I don't think it's going anywhere for a long time.  This chartruese green makes all the other colors more vibrant and looks great with  purples in shades from lavendar to eggplant.
The bride's bouquet was made of purple Stock, lavendar Hydrangea (which appears blue with my camera),  Cool Water Roses, Hypericum and Pittosporum.
Bridesmaids carried green Hydrangea and Spider Mums.
The couple collected wood frames, sprayed them silver, loaded them with all sorts of votive candles and I added Stock blossoms and green Spider Mums.  A picture of the couple was added to each table.

Like Watermelon and Sunshine

I'm crazy about this bright summery color combination, and this bride wasn't afraid to mix bold colors for her 8 bridesmaids with a pastel palette for her bouquet. The colors and flowers just make me smile.
There are so many beautiful berry and watermelon shades to pick from, and Ashley had Gerberas in mind, so we went for bright, bold Mini Gerbera.  Loops of Bear Grass added some whimsy and texture to the bridesmaids bouquets.  Coral Roses, light pink Freesia and lemon ice mini Gerbera made up the Bride's Bouquet.   Thank you for kindly sharing some images with me. 
  Reception flowers were cylinder vases that were filled with colorful daisies and a watermelon -colored band of ribbon around it for a finishing touch. ( No pictures yet.)
Beautiful Bride, beautiful attendants, beautiful colors, and a beautiful day for a very, very, very special couple.

Next week we're at Country Club of York and excited to work with KMPhotography, Lavon Films and a gorgeous couple from Texas.
