In June, I had the pleasure of being a part of a GORGEOUS wedding for Tiffany and Lance.  Tiffany loves color and flowers, which always makes me excited when planning floral designs!!  Her color scheme was coral, with shades of oranges and pinks...and, oh was it beautiful!  This is one of my favorite color combos because orange and pink compliments each other so well and makes each other just POP.  And, the star of the show were these A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. coral peonies...oh my!!!
The wedding took place at a super cool venue - an old log cabin gymnasium on the bluff of the mountain...the ceremony was outside, and the reception inside.  Tiffany's vision was a very vintage feel, and I worked hard to make the flowers look very natural and fresh picked out of the garden.  I loved how the outside set up turned out!
Front door arrangements...
I couldn't get a wide angle photo with my phone, but there were 2 arrangements on each side of the steps...
Inside, Tiffany had some ADORABLE details.  She and her mother made homemade strawberry jam (her grandmother's recipe), and this was the guests' favors!  Love the "spread the love" sign :)
Tiffany also made ribbon wands for guests to wave in the air as they left in place of bubbles, rice, petals, etc.  Cute!
The tables were dressed in white and burlap, with the arrangements in Ball jars...
I almost didn't put this picture, because it does not even give justice to the beauty of the flowers - not my design, but the pure beauty of the flowers...the peonies were just out of this world BEAUTIFUL!  This was on the food table...
The handsome groom...
...and, the stunning bride!
And, these little guys have nothing in the world to do with flowers, but I just thought they were all cute as pie in their suspenders and bow ties!  Love it!!
It was such a FUN wedding to be a part of - I absolutely LOVE to work with brides that love flowers and color as much as I do!!
Congrats Tiffany and Lance!
