The color palette for this wedding, held at a local winery, was one of my favorites…champagne and aqua.

The bridesmaids wore beautiful aqua dresses and carried blue/green Hulk hydrangeas,’Sahara’ roses, ‘Sandy Femma’ roses and white ‘Majolika’ spray roses hand-tied with Midori ‘Cameo’ dupioni silk ribbon. You might recognize this bouquet from my blog header…

And, finally, one of my favorite parts of working with brides…the personal details that set one wedding apart from another. This bride chose to remember her late mother with a magnolia blossom picked the morning of her wedding and a photograph of her mother at the sign-in table. She said magnolia blooms always reminded her of the large magnolia tree in her mother’s yard…which reminded her of her sweet mother.
