A Beautiful Summer Wedding

This weekend, I had the pleasure of doing the floral designs for a sweet bride in Guntersville.  The color scheme - pink, lime, and cream.  She LOVES flowers, and adores "Old South" heirloom kinds of flowers - peonies and hydrangeas were the 2 stars of the show!  And, as any good Southern lady should, she loves monograms - so we did moss covered "W"s on the front door for her new last name.
I used lots and lots and lots (did I say lots??) of green moss on the containers to keep the focus more on the flowers than the containers themselves.  This little topiary arrangement was on the Bride's Book table in the foyer of the church.

More monogrammed sashes were used on the Mother's and Grandmother's reserved seats - my mom makes these (she's the best!!!)
The rest of the pews in the center aisle had a mix of hydrangeas arrangements in the cone shaped baskets.
These candelabras do not belong to me, but I absolutely love them!!  They are real rusty looking, and just look like an antique, but are really not.  My daddy and engineer-minded husband were discussing how we could have some made - I sure hope that works out! :)
The reception was at Dream Ranch which sits on top of the mountain overlooking the lake - isn't the view just beautiful??!!

Arrangement in the foyer - lots and lots of beautiful pink peonies!!

I only added the flowers to the cake, but I had to show it to y'all - it's hard to see in the picture, but those shiny circles on the cake were broaches!!  It was absolutely gorgeous!

And, I could just shoot myself, but I got busy and did not get any pictures of the bouquets!!!!!  Since the amazing Bentley Gray was the photographer for the wedding, maybe I can get some pictures and share - Lindsey, maybe you can work on that ;)...
