This is such a lovely time of year for weddings! And yesterday was the wedding day for Kimberly & Randall.
I love the excitement of that first meeting with the bride-to-be, and this was so true about meeting with Kimberly. She had a wonderful vision of soft, subtle Christmas whites with touches of cranberry and wine, and accents of a variety of Christmas greens.
And then there were the feathery blue-greens of Arizona cypress, above, and pungent stems of Rosemary below.
I had dried crested celosia in a rich cranberry red that would work beautifully in the Matron of Honor's bouquet as well as corsages for the mothers.
Kimberly wanted the frothy delicate blooms of baby's breath for the ceremony designs.
So two pedestal urns were filled with masses of baby's breath for the front St. David's Chapel in Raleigh.
Pew bows were created with billowy clouds of tulle that encased a single ivory rose with Christmas greens and a touch of baby's breath and holly berries.
In addition to dried celosia flowers, the Matron of Honor bouquet also included dark red spray roses, pink alstromeria blooms and cranberry colored chrysanthemums with seeded eucalyptus, blue cypress greens and touches of baby's breath.
Kimberly's bouquet was filled with ivory Vendella roses and Majolica spray roses, wax flowers, green hypericum berries, seeded eucalyptus, blue cypress and cedar and touches of baby's breath. It was the perfect combination of flowers and greens for the Christmas season.
Now there is a new Mr. & Mrs. Praying God's blessing for you two as you start your lives together.
