Vibrant Poppy and Green Wedding at The Hobbs Building

Sunday, July 1, 2012

So this is a really picture-heavy post. I can't really stop myself when the photographers get SO MANY AMAZING IMAGES of my flowers! Woo-hoo! Big thanks to The Solars, who take really beautiful images of happy people in love.

This wedding featured a backdrop of a vibrant, bold poppy color (dresses from J Crew, by the way!). I love complex colors like this one... it wasn't coral, wasn't red, wasn't orange, exactly... it was somewhere in between! We used a vivid spring green for a dramatic fresh pop against that color, and it made a stunning statement! See for yourself:

Above, the girls carried whimsical bouquets of green orchids, green mums, hydrangea, roses, bupleurum, green trick, and a pop of the perfect color of godetia to tie back into the dresses.

The guys wore green button poms for a cool boutonniere! The groom's was a single cymbidium orchid. Don't be fooled by how delicate orchids look... they are actually one of the very sturdiest blooms for personal flowers, perfect for corsages and boutonnieres!


Ellen's bouquet featured hand-wired cymbidium orchids, hydrangea, green trick, peonies, roses, and wrapped grasses for a modern edge. Love her green shoes!

The bride and groom were so happy and so so cute! 

The ceremony... oh how I loved this ceremony! Some of my favorite ideas for ceremony decor ever. The Hobbs Building has a gorgeous patio space with an amazing rusted metal wall for a backdrop, and Ellen wanted to recreate a flower wall that she found in a magazine:

The other super fun thing that we did for the ceremony was this ribbon treatment on the back row of chairs... what an awesome color impact! We also added green button and hydrangea pomanders to some of the chairs.

The reception was equally beautiful. The vibrant green was perfect for this space... natural but yet still dramatic against the raw, rustic backdrop of The Hobbs.
