Brilliance describes these fall colors. Circus Roses, Red Mikado Spray Roses, Shiny Red Hypericum, orange Mokara orchids, Green Mini Hydrangea for the Bride.
The ceremony took place between the pine trees on the lawn at Cameron Estate.  Lots of orange and yellow rose petals line the aisle and a bed of petals for the Bride and Groom to stand in.

Curly Willow and orange Gladiolas.
Hydrangeas and roses in mason jars hang from the shepherd hooks.

Autumn's Warm Colors

Time to get back to blogging.  So many weddings, so little time to blog.
Here are the pictures, not too much time to write. 
Oregonia, white Lisianthus and white Freesia~ this bouquet looks like a hand-full, but is very lightweight and smells like heaven.  One bridesmaid told me that Kelly was holding it so she could savor it's fragrance during the ceremony.  When I went back that night, she was still holding it. (smile)  Warmed my heart.  No way was this pretty bride tossing her bouquet!
Bridesmaids carried Lisianthus, roses, Kangaroo Paws, Spider Mums, China berries & mini Gerbs.

       Reese's Pieces are the perfect fall colored candy.  I loved these clear leaf -shaped favor boxes.  
                                ...............and white mini pumpkin place card holders
                       Pottery Barn lanterns with Wheat Grass, candles and fall flowers.

Vintage Wedding Style

Katie, a photographer from Philadelphia and her fiance Jason were married in the Cobblestone Courtyard at Lauxmont Farms.  They love vintage items; perfect for a rustic barn reception.  So shopping they went, then brought me boxes and boxes of really old rustic crocks, blue Mason jars, teapots and cups, old drinking glasses, and tons of old, old books.  Some children's books and elementary readers, some old Bibles, one titled "The Devil In Bucks County", and "Runaway Ralph".  Each table was different and definitely made for interesting table conversations.  So we stacked them up, and filled all the vessels with flowers in lots of colors.  Katie's bouquet was white Mini Callas, Freesia and white Majolika Spray Roses with silvery-white Artemesia/Dusty Miller.  I wish I had a picture of Katie in her wedding dress.  She was a picture of modern/vintage loveliness.
Bridesmaids wore  beautiful chocolate brown satin dresses and had bouquets with Miracle Roses, Lemon Drop Roses, mini Sunflowers, Asclepias, Motso Moto Asters, Lilies, Dianthus, Artemesia, Dahlias and Athos Poms and Mini Gerbera. 
Boutts. were Craspedia (aka Billy Balls) and Kangaroo Paws

Handmade details make a wedding so personal.
One of the best handmade details I have ever seen,( of which I have a picture on my cell phone), is a cake topper made of paper.  It is  bride and groom that seriously look just like Katie and Jason, clear down to her dress and his suit!  Whoever made that could market them and make a boat-load of cash!  Truly adorable.  When I figure out my new phone I'll post it, but don't hold you're breath.  Not only am I not a photographer, I'm not a techie either.
Best of everything to a very adorable couple. Here's to Katie and Jason!
