Elaine and Aaron

This wedding was at Clermont Historic Site, which is a Livingston home on the Hudson River near Tivoli.
This Bride is a singer/Vocalist and her Husband is an artist. We were able to be very creative with the bouquets and centerpieces.

The Bride wanted a lot of Hanging Amaranthus in her bouquets so it created and interesting look.
For the Brides Bouquet we used green Hanging Amaranthus, green Hypericum Berries, Hosta Leaves, Jade Roses, ivory Stock, defoliated Sunflowers, white Veronica, white Dendrobium Orchids, and Casablanca Lilies.

The Bridal party had green Cymbidium and Dendrobium Orchids, Jade Roses, dark rust Sunflowers and James Story Orchids.

Down the aisle, we had Teddy bear Sunflowers on our wrought iron candelabras
For the Reception, we alternated sculptural style table arrangements.
We used low glass dishes with Sunflower buds, Belles of Ireland, green Dendrobium Orchids, red Dahlias, burgundy Calla Lilies, Kiwi branch, and moss.

For the other set of tables we used a low metal dish with Manzanita branches, Sunflowers, Belles of Ireland, James Story Orchids, red Dahlia’s, burgundy Calla Lilies, and green Dendrobium Orchids.

I am posting a photo of the Registration table before it was completed. We used textured moss, Teddy Bear Sunflowers and Mushrooms to create a woodland feel.

The Buffet arrangement was in a tall glass. We used James Story Orchids, rust colored Sunflowers, and green Hanging Amaranthus.
The Bar arrangement had white Dendrobium Orchids, burgundy Calla Lilies, Belles of Ireland with moss and Sunflowers submerged in water.

Julie and David - Fall Wedding

This Buttermilk Falls Wedding took place the first week of November, so we had to do the ceremony under a tent. The couple was very nice; the Bride is a Dog trainer so that had their cute little Pug in the wedding party. I used her bouquet as the opening photos of this Blog. I love the colors and textures. Especially the contrast of green and dark reds/ burgundy. These photos were taken by Juliana Thomas.
We have worked with her a couple of times and shes great. Check out her website:
In the Bridal party Bouquets, we had green Spider Mums, Seeded Eucalyptus, Mango and burgundy Calla Lilies, red Mokara Orchids, Rosemary, Black Baccara Roses, and ivory Stock.

The Chuppah we used was birch; we covered it with green Hanging Amaranthus, branches, garlands, red James Story Orchids, and greens. We also used dried leaves down the aisle.

In the cocktail tent, we had a large arrangement in a copper bowl. We used Italian Ruscus, Curly Willow, James Story Orchids, Cat Tail, Calla Lilies, green Spider Mums, and green Hanging Amaranthus.

The cocktail tables were in small frosted square glass. We had mango and wine colored Calla Lilies, green Spider Mums, Italian Ruscus, James Story Orchids and burgundy Hypericum Berries.

For all the tables we used dark stained wooden crates. Inside, we used Terra Cotta potted Succulents, green Spider Mums, James Story Orchids, Italian Ruscus, Mango Calla Lilies, green Hanging Amaranthus, and Kiwi Vine.
