Peach and Coral Garden Roses and Poppies for Taylor and Grant's Wedding

Love, love, love this color palette!!! It's so fresh and so perfect for a mid May wedding.
And such a lovely setting... Snipes Farm in the spring time... Thankfully the rains held off, and everything looked wonderful for Taylor and Grant's outdoor ceremony yesterday.
I met with Taylor and her Mom, Tammy, last fall around State Fair time. We talked flowers and colors for a while, and then they set off for the State fair with their family. In the next few weeks the color and flower choices were firmed up. Some of Taylor's favorites- baby's breath, garden roses or peonies and soft green succulents. She wanted her bridesmaids to carry all white bouquets to set off their seafoam green dresses and for her bouquet she wanted corals, peaches, and pale yellows, oh yes, and succulents!
This is when I start to think about what can I grow that will be in that color palette. My first thought was zinnias in corals and salmons, (this year it just wasn't meant to be- too cool in March and April!). But there is always something else and I was so excited that I had also mentioned poppies- they came through beautifully.
Taylor decided to use small pails filled with white hydrangeas and coral and peach roses and spray roses to adorn the aisle chairs. She and her sister decorated each pail with burlap ribbon accented with a single white  flower.
Tables for the reception were fitted with burlap runners and a collection of flower filled bottles and votives. Flowers from the garden included poppies, a small gathering of late blooming ranunculus, Chantilly snapdragons, and yellow flower stems from garden kale.
Lots of love went into the decorations... Tammy created a beautiful wall of flowers with bottles and zinnias (I would love to get to know her source!)...
I can't wait to hear all the wonderful details.As Sandy and I were leaving, a joyful crowd was gathering to celebrate a wedding.
And today there is a newly married couple! Taylor and Grant, praying God's blessing for  you as you begin your lives together!!!
