Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to help transform a beautiful backyard of a local Ocean City-area family... all for a wedding ceremony and reception! Brookes and Neil tied the knot in the backyard of a stunning home on the Fourth of July. The view of the bay was nothing but extraordinary.
With a color scheme of dark purple, grey & silver, the couple chose to incorporated calla lilies, picasso lilies, lavender roses, plum orchids, purple hydrangea & deep purple stock flowers into their wedding day.
The bride's bouquet was so pretty. The slightly cascading shape of the bouquet and the mix of textures made this arrangement extra romantic-looking. The bouquet was wrapped in greyish-silver ribbon and pinned with silver pins.
Her groom's boutonniere was nothing but original! One of the first things Neil asked for when I met with this couple for their initial consultation was, "Could you make a boutonniere with a carnivorous plant?" I pulled some strings and (with the help of family members and friends) created this pitcher plant boutonniere. The groom had asked for a 'minimalist' styled bout. I paired the pitcher plant with some simple greenery and ribbon matching the bride's bouquet.
A purple and white wrist corsage also featured a small pitcher plant and was paired with purple stock and white spray roses.
The father's wore picasso lily boutonnieres; also of a minimalist style.
The tented reception was marked with mason jar centerpieces placed atop grey linens. They were filled with deep purple flowers and tied with plum ribbon.
Overlooking the water, the couple placed two wooden antique doors to serve as a backdrop for their wedding ceremony. I created two cascading swags to accent the doors. The greenery and flowers used in the alter pieces matched the bride's bouquet: large white lilies, purple roses and calla lilies.
Congratulations, Brookes & Neil! Thank you for having me play a part in your wedding ceremony. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you!
