White Wedding

I love working with white - it always looks clean, fresh, and elegant - no matter what time of year.  Using various flowers in a single color creates a richness and pleases the eye as one is drawn to the textures and the subtle layers of color within the arrangement. I love it!

This wedding was primarily white, with a few pink highlights in a few elements - the bridesmaids' bouquets, the boutonnieres, the church pieces, and the cocktail tables. I used greens as a framework to highlight all of the white as well as this gorgeous, thick, silk greenish and buttery white ribbon in all of the arrangements.

On a crisp October evening, Overbrook Golf Club seemed to be glowing with all the white and soft candlelight.

I used lots of white Tibet roses, white Eskimo roses, snapdragon, white hydrangea, Fresca hydrangea, greens, various exotic leaves, and curly willow.  For the pink elements, I used Blushing Akito roses - I had to match a photo from ten years ago and it was a challenge to find the exact match because rose varieties come and go! We did it though, and it all looked gorgeous.

Some bridesmaids and flower girl bouquets - see the lovely Blushing Akito roses!
