Morningside castle, summer wedding.

I've got a few back to back posted because I am playing catch up from this summer's weddings. This was an August 13th wedding.

I LOVED this bridal bouquet. It was a small/medium scale using the sought after David Austin garden roses, red Piano roses, spray roses, dahlias, ranunculous, and coxcomb. We used a Daffy blue ribbon and a butterfly memento pined on to the handle. The centers incorporated hydrangea, hypericum berries, white lisianthus, red piano roses and stock.

The chuppah for the ceremony had lots of thin birch poles attached to steel structure, red berries and greens in the upper corners and white delphinium coming up from the base.

Bicycle love, summer wedding.

This was an August 5th wedding for two lovely fellow Irish folk that loved to bike. The bride requested her flowers to incorporate lots of herbs and wild flowers in addition to any sort of Irish element we could think of. As I scratched my head.... it came to me to use Jameson, Tullermordue, and Guinness beer cans as the containers! I carefully ripped off the tops o the cans, foamed them up and popped in the flowers. They were super fun and great for guests to take home.
