If you love flowers, and umm, who doesn't, you're gonna love this next little beauty from the good old Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It's so overflowing with amazingly beautiful flowers that I can practically smell the tuberose and hydrangea from here! Captured by the super talented Eric Limón, this wedding is sure to make you a wee bit jealous of its gorgeousness. Head to the gallery, but don't say I didn't warn you!
Our ceremony took place in a perennial garden with an aisle lined in hydrangea trees and underneath an iron arbor entwined in white flowering vines. The abundance of existing flora reduced the amount of additional elements needed, thus reducing total cost. My bouquet was filled with mostly white roses, hydrangea, anemones, and tomato vine. My sister’s mirrored mine while the bridesmaids held smaller versions punctuated with bright pink anemones. Tim, the groomsmen, and our fathers wore tuberose and sedum boutonnieres.
Cocktail hour was simplified with variegated fig leaf, thyme, and moss topiaries potted in Campo de’Fiori containers at each cocktail table and one either side of the bar. The favor table and existing well were adorned with large urns filled with flowers similar to my bouquet. These arrangements were quite large, giving a nice juxtaposition to the smaller potted plants on the tables.
For the reception we went for looser arrangements filled with vines, opened and unopened dahlias, hydrangea, thistle, roses, and dusty miller (just to name a few) punctuated with chocolate cosmo. My mom came up with the ingenious idea of having two different types of containers; formal mercury glass vases (that went beautifully with the slate grey bridesmaid dresses) and concrete urns. We spent the year collecting vessels from Campo de’Fiori, antique stores, Homegoods, and even the dollar store! Each rectangular table became unique with different vessels of varying height that ran the entire length. Personally, I am not a fan of tall centerpieces; why create something gorgeous only to lift it to a height that only Shaq could really enjoy? We couldn’t be happier that we purchased our own vessels; they are a constant reminder of a great and beautiful day.
