Pewter and Pink...

Monday, July 12, 2010

Here's another lovely pink wedding, courtesy of Morgan with Cornerstone Photography. (YES, lots of pink this year... although I PROMISE that's not all I've been doing, it just seems that way!) Julie chose to use a deep pewter gray as the background for vibrant, romantic pink blooms that really spoke of spring on what ended up being a cloudy, rainy day in Kansas City.

Julie's bouquet featured roses, peonies, ranunculus, and calla lilies, along with touches of dusty miller to pick up on that perfect tone of gray. As you can see in the photos below, they didn't let the rain damper their spirits on the big day!

Although the ceremony was originally planned for outside, Mother Nature thought otherwise; thankfully, their "plan B" involved a beautiful indoor scenario. We used large, aged black columns and urns filled with stunning pink florals to flank the "altar" that was placed on a stage in front of large windows, stone columns and a fireplace.

We chose to do three different types of centerpieces for the reception. A grouping of cylinder vases, filled with a variety of submerged blooms and floating candles added a lot of glow to the room. The other tables were square vases (accented with pewter satin ribbon) and filled with lush floral arrangements... both high and low tables shifted the focus throughout the room. I love the mercury-glass votive candles and pewter pin-tucked linens that she chose!

Above, the head table was a gorgeous focal point... I love the wash of gray light across this table, it really showcases the moody light of the day! Thanks for the gorgeous pics Morgan, and thanks Julie for choosing me, I had so much fun with your flowers!
