Wedding Chicks

Rustic Elegance

A romantic, rustic and elegant wedding, with just a touch of whimsy.  We were hired by the lovely couple to not only provide their floral and decor, but also to design the overall wedding, which featured a color scheme of white, ivory and juniper green.  This North Shore wedding, with it's many details, was so much fun to design!  Floral designs featured romantic peonies, roses, hydrangea and freesia, as well as playful flowers like anemone, scabiosa, veronica and cymbidium orchids.

The wood ceremony canopy featured sheer juniper green fabric with hundreds of orchids hung from the ceiling and canopy legs. Rustic wood barrels filled with flowers and eucalyptus lined the aisle.

Cocktails following the ceremony overlooked the stunning blue ocean.

Since the bride and groom are such avid travelers, it was only appropriate for their guests to show where they flew in from by marking a giant map as they signed in.  As you can see, all over the world!

The bride and groom wanted to incorporate activities for their guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour.  Horseshoes and Bocce Ball, as well as a "photo op" area, kept the guests entertained and amused.

A custom candy bar with the bride and groom's favorite treats from around the world served as an excellent favor for their guests to take home.

The rustic theme continued to the dining tables where mason jars were used for the centerpieces.  Orchids strands and ribbons hung from ivory manzanita branches in the dining tent ceiling.  These, along with white paper lanterns, created a whimsical feel under the tent.
