I haven’t done a traditional fall wedding in a while, so I was thrilled when I met with Kathy and autumn was the theme. She thought of everything down to every last detail. I just had to make my design fit in with all of the design elements she already had planned.
For the bridal bouquet, I used burgundy dahlias, orange mini calla lilies, orange roses, green mini hydrangea, hypericum berries, preserved fall leaves, yellow solidaigo and seeded eucalyptus. The bouquet was wrapped in burlap and white lace. The groom’s boutonierre is burgundy dahlia with hypericum, preserved fall leaves and seeded eucalyptus wrapped in twine.
The reception took place in a barn that had long rectangular tables so I did five smaller centerpieces on each table. I love doing monochromatic designs, so I did two smaller jars filled with yellow solidaigo, two taller jars filled with orange roses and curly willow, and a large mason jar filled red chrysanthemums and pittosporum greens. All of the jars were decorated by the bride. I loved the use of snapple bottles with the painted “S”- the bride and grooms last name starts with a “S.” Wine bottles filled with curly willow stems and snapple bottles filled with orange sunflowers decorated the gift and placecard tables.
