floating roses - an elegant white wedding

Elegant and classy, but with a unique twist.  So many weddings have round tables, so it was fun to do long tables - they allow for a different style and a little more room.  Instead of just one centerpiece, we went with a row of centerpieces down the length of the table.  And those of you thinking "yeah, but that would totally blow my budget! I can't afford more than one centerpiece per table!" - definitely not the case here.  Each vase had only a single flower in it - a large white garden rose floating on top of the water.  We did mix it up a bit so some tables had a taller centerpiece in the middle, but the tables with only the floating roses looked just as lovely.  And the little glass votives, lace tablecloths, and delicate china gave it an even more romantic feeling.

The taller centerpiece was actually on a glass cake stand - white roses, some greenery, and a taller candle in the middle

Retro Wildflower Themed Shoot

Here are just a few of the pictures from the awesome shoot I worked on a few weeks ago.  Thanks April from Bladh Photography for the gorgeous photos!  They were going for a very retro/vintage look, with the flowers looking very natural and organic, so we used some wildflowers, and some things you might find growing in your own garden.  We also used mason jars and some vintage looking vases and pitchers to hold the flowers and tie it all together.  Enjoy!
