Kelly and Dan, the Bride and Groom were both really sweet and surprisingly calm. They had their dog with them and Steve made a corsage for his collar, as he was a Groomsmen.
We alternated the centerpieces with olive colored ceramic Urns and low dishes with pillar candles and clusters of flowers.
The Urn arrangements had purple and green Kale, peach/orange Dahlias, purple Stock, ivory Roses, Ivy and Seeded Eucalyptus. For the low dishes, we used purple Delphinium, peach Snap Dragons, Ivy and Orchids.
The Cocktail Table arrangements were really nice. They were in black Deco style Urns and had purple speckled Orchids, purple Lisianthus, lavender Roses, lavender Stock and Ivy.
There was no bridal party, just the Bride and two Mom’s Posies.
For the Bride we used lavender Stock, lavender Roses, Amnesia Roses, purple Lisianthus, Orchids, and lavender Freesia. I used pretty brown ribbon.

Both Moms got purple/pink Cymbidium Orchids, lavender Roses, purple speckled Mokara Orchids, lavender Stock and ivory Ranunculus. I used Taupe ribbon for the Mom’s.
It was also a nice opportunity to do something different. We have done plant arrangements before; it is a nice alternative to floral design.
OK I may be posting too many of these aisle chair arrangements but I cannot help myself. It is so hard to choose which ones to post. They all have something slightly different to them. The flowers we used were peach Dahlias, purple Lisianthus, purple Stock, Amnesia Roses, peach/yellow Parrot Tulips and Ivy.
We drive through the Ashokan Reservoir when going to an Onteora job. I find so much peace and inspiration there. I stopped by with Scarlett to take in the view and to take photos. I spotted a Blue Heron standing by the shoreline. It’s also nice to end each Blog post with a Hudson Valley inspirational photo. I think I may start doing that from now on.
