Refreshing Summer Whites...

Thursday, August 14, 2008

I've got to say, this wedding was a really fun departure for me this summer... not that I don't totally love all this pink of late (I've got two girls after all)! It does seem like there has been a LOT of the various shades of pink in this summer's weddings... so it was fun to do something a little different! Lindsey's bridesmaids wore a pretty aqua color, but her flowers were entirely white... and at the reception she really pulled in that fun black and white damask print for a beautiful graphic element! Check out the gorgeous details!

Above is the bride's stunning bouquet, composed of white sweet peas, pearl-headed stephanotis, and mini white calla lilies. This was one of the most involved, delicate bouquets that I have ever made, and I was super-proud of the end result. I overheard her telling her mom how much she loved her bouquet as I was walking in the room... this is always a good sign! :)

The maids' bouquets, above... stephanotis, hydrangea, callas, and freesia. Fragrant, feminine, summery and gorgeous!

Mom's nosegay, above... she wanted some sparkles! :) Petite and fragrant!

Above and below, aisle markers and the altar at the Kansas City Downtown Public Library. Kirk Hall is absolutely stunning for wedding ceremonies... unexpected and a great "downtown" vibe!

Super-fun centerpieces at The Sawyer Room. Oh my goodness this is also a gorgeous space! This was my first time to work there, and the people were wonderful, the windows and light are gorgeous, it's utterly beautiful and charming. Check out the black and white fabric squares that Lindsey's mom made for the tables... so cute! The tall centerpieces are these gorgeous new square vases that are now a RENTAL ITEM thanks to this incredibly awesome bride! We also floated gardenias and orchids in the low bowls for the ultimate fragrant centerpiece.

And I had to include a shot of her candy buffet, since so many girls are doing these now, and looking for inspiration shots! Aren't those containers just the cutest? Somebody needs to start a business of renting/setting these up for brides according to color scheme or something, don't you think? I know it must be expensive to buy all those containers and candy (not to mention a lot of work), but it's so stinking cute! Thanks so much, Lindsey, for being such a fun bride for me to work with, I can't wait to see the real "pro" pics when they come up!
