Indian Style Wedding - Our last wedding of the season

The last wedding of the season was on November 20th at Round Hill House. We would like to take the time to THANK all the couples, locations, and vendors who gave us their trust and support making this year the most joyous successful year to date. We especially want to thank Eileen, Amanda, and Craig for all of your loyalty and hard work, you have our hearts and gratitude, and we could not have done it without you.
 The Bride was American and the Groom was Indian. This wedding was fun because we could use lots of color. For the reception, the Bride chose Teal table linen with gold runners. She was inspired by the colors of Peacock feathers.
For this ceremony, Steve created a beautiful “Mandaap” (an Indian ceremony arch). He used fabric from the Bride, garlands, flowers, feathers, branch, hanging budvases, jewels, and a garland with faux floral lights.

We alternated two sets of table arrangements. We used antique rusted Urns with green Hydrangea, blue Delphinium, rust Lilies, Spider Mums, purple Stock, Mango Calla Lilies, eggplant Carnations, and Peacock feathers.

In the black ceramic Squares we used eggplant Carnations, rust Lilies, Spider Mums, green Hydrangea, blue Delphinium, purple Stock, feathers and moss balls.

The Bride liked the idea of mixing Magenta and Teal. For the Brides Bouquet we used Stars of Bethlehem, ivory Stock, green Parrot Tulips, dark wine Peonies, dark red Garden Roses, purple Anemone, Mango Calla Lilies, rust Yarrow with Peacock feathers and jewels. I wrapped the bouquet in teal ribbon with a corset style magenta overlay.

The Maid of Honor had similar flowers to the Bride with teal ribbon and magenta pins.

Round Hill House - November

This wedding was at Round Hill House. We alternated three sets of table arrangements. You all know we love to alternate. Here are Bubble Bowls again (see how diverse they are?). It is fun to do the arrangements inside the bowls (something we got from England) and then it is also nice to do arrangements that are more traditional as well. For these we used green/burgundy Hydrangea, coral colored Peony, green/ white Parrot Tulips, cream/white Kale, white Cymbidium Orchids, ivory Roses, Mango Calla Lilies and Ivy. Each table had a large Bubble Bowl with three small ones. In each small Bubble Bowl was a Cymbidium Orchid, Ivy and milk – yes, milk.

The other table design had a pillar candle set on a glass plate with a mix of Calla Lilies, Peonies, Cymbidium Orchids, Snap Dragons, Tiger tail Orchids, Quicksand Roses, baby blue Delphinium, purple Stock, and Ivy. The third set had multiple glass and candles.

I really liked the Bouquets a lot. I was so excited that I could alternate really cool ribbon. For the Brides Bouquet we used coral Peonies, dark burgundy Calla Lilies, peach Stock, Quicksand & Cherry Brandy Roses, Anemones, rust Ranunculus, and wine colored Spider Mums. I added polka dot Guinea feathers and tied the Bouquet w/ black and white polka dot ribbon. I love how the feathers match the ribbon.

Maid of Honor

Brides Maid
There were seven women in the Bridal party so I alternated striped and polka dotted ribbon.

The cocktail arrangements were in ceramic urns and squares. We used Kale, Roses, Hydrangea, Parrot Tulips, Calla Lilies, and Seeded Eucalyptus.

Since the wedding was in November, we set up the ceremony where the dance floor is located. We had two urns arrangements on either side on our handmade stands made by Richard Serra’s assistant. They had large Ferns, Belles of Ireland, Delphinium, Curly Willow, and Italian Ruscus. We also had aisle chair arrangements with Quicksand Roses, green Spider Mums, Tiger tail Orchids and Anemones.

Steve made a pretty display with Ferns, blue Delphinium, peach Snap Dragons, Mango calla Lilies, Curly Willow and Italian Ruscus.
