Pretty in Plum...

Sunday, April 11, 2010

Here's some more blooms for all my fall brides! This one was a gorgeous mix of deep oranges, burgundy reds, and yummy plums. These flowers were elegant and somewhat formal for this evening church wedding, but with a really rustic touch that was so much fun and added just the right element of surprise.

The bride's bouquet, above, contained various shades of orange roses, burgundy/plum and rust dahlias, hypericum berries, monkey tails, chocolate cosmos, calla lilies and coppery cymbidium orchids. The groom's boutonniere was a single orange rose with a foliage wrap, and the groomsmen wore monkey tails with hypericum berries and foliages.

The church was really simple inside, so we fluffed it up with tons of fall blooms. The aisle had these charming poofs of fall (antique) hydrangea, accented with roses and lilies, seeded eucalpytus and chunks of curly willow. Each pew marker was tied on with a long, draping and knotted piece of antique gold tulle.

We also added a ton of decor on the stage where the bridal party stood for the ceremony. Fresh arrangements inside pumpkins, along with a ton of various colors of pumpkins, gourds and more of the antique gold tulle, really helped make the stage a feature.

These romantic "tree" candelabra from Something Borrowed make such an awesome statement, and when they are lit up they provide really romantic mood lighting! I love them as centerpieces as well as large pieces to flank your altar and fill in empty space effectively.

I'll leave you with a few parting shots of the bouquets... I especially loved the wrap and handle of these... we used a raw, rustic burlap as the background for taffeta and organza plum ribbons. That mixture of elegant and rustic is what makes fall weddings so much fun... it's a great time to play with the unexpected!
