Andy & Mikey and Julie's bouquets

Last weekend we did the flowers for a couple’s ceremony at The Emerson. It is a gorgeous place to have a wedding ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner or after hours party. Call Marcilene Smith, she is nice to work with and check out their website
They only needed a Huppah and the Bridal party flowers. Steve set up the Huppah in the morning and dropped of the bouquets and boutonnieres. They had a good photographer so I am waiting until I get her photos to post.

The bride’s bouquet had ivory Stock, white Scabiosa flowers, Scabiosa Pods, peach Calla Lily, Amnesia Roses, Lady’s Mantle, Chamomile, Thyme, Sage, Stars of Bethlehem and white and Raspberry Cosmos. I wrapped the bouquet in an antique style ribbon. The Bridesmaids had similar flowers but more Raspberry color. We used Raspberry Roses, lavender Scabiosa flowers and Cantaloupe Ranunculus.

Then we were off to a wedding at a private residence in Chappaqua.

 The ceremony spot had a gorgeous view. We used our metal arch, which is made of metal twigs. Steve added Kiwi vine and green Hanging Amaranths. On either side of the arch were stonewalls. We had two large pieces of driftwood. Steve used potted Orchids and plants mixed around the driftwood. On every other aisle chair, we hung green glass vases with green Hydrangea, green Button Mums and variegated Ivy.

The Bride wanted her bouquet to be shades of green with white and yellow accents. For the Brides bouquet, we used green Button Mums, Green Tea Roses, Lady’s Mantle, Stars of Bethlehem, defoliated Scabiosa flowers, white Cosmos, Chamomile, Scabiosa Pods, green Hanging Amaranths, white/green Lisianthus, and yellow Freesia. In the end, we felt it needed a little bit of color and Tweedia would be the perfect fit.

The Maid of Honor’s bouquet was similar. It had a different type of Chamomile and green Hypericum. We did not add yellow or lavender accents.
We wrapped the bouquet in Green Tea ribbon. The bride wanted us to add rope so there are photos with both.
On the escort card table, we used a large clay Urn with Belles of Ireland, Ivy, green Hydrangea and Green Eyed Susan. The bride made these cool escort cards and we placed them in wine crates.

The reception tent was on the tennis court and there were long wooden farm tables with burlap runners. Each table had a wooden crate with Hanging Amaranths, ivory Stock, Green Tea Roses, Lady’s Mantle, green Hydrangea, Moss, Variegated Ivy and a Cymbidium Orchid. We alternated Sage and Thyme.
As companion pieces we used glass jars with three types of Chamomile, Green Tea Roses, white Scabiosa flowers, Lady’s mantle, Billy Balls and Ivy. The bride really likes Billy Balls, Hanging Amaranths and Chamomile so we wanted to incorporate these elements into the tables and throughout the wedding.

Each guest got a sapling wrapped in burlap.

This couple was really nice and fun to work with. The colors were very fresh and the wedding looked so elegant. The weather could not have been nicer. The caterers were Main Course so the food was also great.

I can’t wait to see the professional photos as their photographer is a really good one we have worked with before. I will post his photos once I get them.
