This weekend I had the honor of working with one of my favorite couples of all time on their wedding. Liz and John, whom I have known for almost three years, entrusted me with their flowers for their special day: a beautiful mix between classic and out of the box.
Opting for a DIY Floral Class, we and some of their closest friends and family created each of their centerpieces with beautiful white hydrangeas and a wild accent of feather and silver dollar eucalyptus.
The ceremony was decorated with tall vases exploding with baby's breath and greens, accented with white garden roses, lisianthus, and anemones. The aisle of their family church was lined with baby's breath and feather eucalyptus wrapped in tulle along the pews. A ceremonial arrangement was also created by Liz's sister and maid of honor for the altar.
Each bridesmaid was given a white and green overgrown bouquet. Their bouquets had an arrangement of roses, ranunculus, anemones, lisianthus, dahlias, baby's breath, as well as feather and silver dollar eucalyptus. For the family -- rose boutonnières and corsages made from carnations and spray roses.
Anyone who knows Liz knows that she has impeccable taste that can be quite dramatic. She truly is the epitome of "go big or go home." To give her a bouquet short of show-stopping would be a disservice. Inspired by her mother's bridal bouquet, Liz's arrangement was a large, organic teardrop shape made of two different varieties of roses, dahlias, peonies, ranunculus, anemones, veronica, lisianthus, baby's breath, dusty miller, and feather, baby blue, and silver dollar eucalyptus.
To round it out, I made a custom wooden "C" monogram to celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs. Clancy decorated in silk hydrangeas for them to hang in their home and remember their day by.
The entire day was beautiful and seamless, and not a single person made it out of there without tears in their eyes (myself included!). I wish both Liz and John nothing but love and happiness for all the years to come. To have such a role in this day was truly a privilege!
