purple, silver, and white wedding

I'm excited to share this beautiful wedding with you today! The colors were purple, white, and silver.

One of the fun things about this wedding was that instead of bouquets for the bridesmaids, we did wrist corsages with gorgeous dark purple anemones.

I absolutely love anemones! So I was excited to get to use them in this wedding. They are such a statement flower that they worked really well for the bridesmaids' corsages.

The bride's bouquet was a mix of dark purple, lavender, and white flowers, with lots of different shades and textures. And the stems were wrapped in white with a sheer silver overlay to tie in the silver.

Here are all of the wedding party flowers

Purple anemone wrist corsages, white and purple pin-on corsages, white boutonnieres, and a purple boutonniere for the groom. 

White rose and purple freesia corsages for the mothers, with silver ribbon (although it looks a little gold in this picture...)

And finally, the groom's boutonniere: dark purple lisianthus

white flowers and christmas greens

I thought I'd bring in some Christmas spirit by sharing some pictures from this wedding today.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work on this gorgeous wedding this weekend! Often December brides try to shy away from traditional Christmas and wintry looking wedding themes, but this bride embraced it, and I'm so glad! It was such a perfect fit for her lovely vintage ivory dress (it was her grandmother's) and the snow lingering from the last storm.

For the bride's  bouquet we used a mix of "Christmas" greens - mostly pine and cedar, with white roses, baby's breath, wax flower, and pine cones. And of course finished it off with sheer gold ribbon.

The groom's boutonniere was pine and cedar, with mini pine cones, and a touch of baby's breath and wax flower. So perfect for this elegant winter wedding.

Here's a close-up of the bouquet (for some reason the color is a bit off... but hopefully you get the idea! And hopefully I'll get some beautiful pictures from the photographer soon!)

I just love how it looks in the snow! 

Well, I've got a few days off before my post-Christmas weddings. More pictures of all these December weddings coming soon!

Merry Christmas!
