As I have said before, it is one of the rarer colors in nature in terms of flowers, so finding hardy blue flowers to withstand summer heat can be a bit tricky. Delphinium is not traditionally a strong flower, but I got lucky for this summer wedding and I had bunches of the most brilliant (and hardy) delphinium.
My bride wanted all blue and whites and silvers - blue is both a favorite color and a salute to her groom who serves in the US Navy. The colors looked great against the grey stone and flagstone of the terrace and structure of Greystone Hall. On a clear summer day, the vista from the terrace to the ceremony site was simply lovely.
Flowers pictured include: blue and white hydrangea, blue delphinium, vivian spray roses, tibet white roses, casablanca lilies, white snapdragon, peonies, white alstroemeria, freesia, Israeli ruscus, salal, seeded eucalyptus, pittosporum, and silver branches.
