Hyerstay Wedding

This stunning wedding from last April was fun to do and I was so pleased with the final result. These photos from Wendy Gregory Photography highlight some of my favorite images captured from the day. The bride, Liz, utilized flowers and decor to create a stunning backdrop for the ceremony from a space that was otherwise dark and bare. Shimmering candles, mercury glass and fluffy white hydrangeas made a spectacular setting.

Liz’s bridal bouquet was  a mixture of hydrangea, freesia, coral David Austin roses, ranunculus and lots of rhinestones. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets that were color grouped with purple, coral and green. The coral gerondo gerberas added fun texture and were just the right shade! At the reception (40 tables!!) Liz purchased bulk hydrangeas and vases and submerged single white hydrangea blossoms in large cylinders for a simple and elegant DIY centerpiece.

Fall Bridal Bouquets

If you’re planning a fall wedding the season is quickly approaching. The colors in autumn are so gorgeous and September/October weddings here in Oregon tend to be fantastic. Yes, the weather in October is a bit dicey…but the leaves!! So pretty. Here are some ideas and inspiration for wedding bouquets if you are exchanging vows this fall.

A beautiful mix of tropical flowers with dahlias and sunflowers

Sunflowers are available in both standard and minis- combine both sizes for more interest

Shades of orange gerbera daisies, carnations, roses and alstromeria

Fiery orange tones are quite stunning against the champagne and ivory dresses

The miniature calla lilies are used to create the in-out look for more interest and texture

Haley didn't want white for her bouquet and chose a larger version of her bridesmaids' bouquets

I love the combo of blue and orange (Photo by Blue Castle Photography)
