The bride and groom started with a love of greenery and all things gray, and we built the day around that.
The flowers were mostly whites and greens, with a few earl grey roses tucked in here and there to bring out more grey tones. The bride’s bouquet included some blush roses in homage to her late Grandmother, who favored a particular blush rosebush in her garden. Memories are one of the things that make flowers so special.
The Evergreen Museum has this stunning fountain and columns, but it often proves a design challenge for our clients. The columns are so high that arrangements up top get missed, and pieces in front of the fountain can look busy. So, we decided to make the fountain look like it was being overtaken by a rose bush, rambling across and around it.
For the ceremony chairs, we wanted greenery but didn’t want anything as formal as a garland, so we tucked in what appeared to be errant, vining greens.
The vining greenery look was continued into cocktail hour…
And the reception, where we used greenery to dress up these orbs provided by Revolution Event Company. The orbs are normally accompanied by crystal chandeliers, but we wanted the day to have more of a Restoration Hardware vibe, so we nixed the crystal and filled them with greenery instead.
For the sweetheart table, the ladies at Lemon & Lime considered incorporating a clock on the wall, as the groom, Adam, is a clock afficianado. We planned to do clocks with wreaths but then decided to nix the clock and stick with the wreaths. I’ve said it before, but I always love circular pieces at weddings because there’s so much symbolism.
Here’s to an eternity in this wild garden we call life.
