Weddings- Courtney and Nick

March is such a splendid month for weddings! And last Saturday was a delightful day for Courtney and Nick's wedding. I met with Courtney and her Mom, Evelyn, last fall, and she definitely knew the look she wanted for her bouquet- classic white with calla lilies and roses and freesia and stock. It was a beautiful bouquet with a sweet delicate fragrance.
For her bridesmaids she wanted rich jewel colors that would compliment her all white bouquet and set off their watermelon pink dresses.
The bridesmaids' flowers included bright pink gerber daisies, yellow spray roses, purple stock and lavender carnations.

Little details add a lot to the wedding. Here is a row of pew markers, tied with moss green ribbon, waiting to be packed for the trip to the wedding site. The flowers included fuchsia stock, purple larkspur and yellow spray roses. Notice how the yellows make all the colors sparkle.
The ceremony arrangements were set upon metal planters and included all the colors found the bridesmaid bouquet. In addition, I added some Bells of Ireland which fit in well with the family's Irish heritage. The ceremony, though slated for outdoors, actually took place inside the reception hall at The Matthews House because the ground was too wet after last Thursday's afternoon rains.. But here's a shot of how the design would have looked if the grounds had permitted.
I am so happy for you, Courtney and Nick, and I wish you all the best as you begin that wonderful journey as husband and wife.
PS: I can't wait to see the wonderful pics that Michael of Michael's Memories captured of your special day!!!
