Sam and Juan are Married!

November 7, 2010

Last month we did flowers for a wedding at The Pres House, downtown Madison, WI. The reception was held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Middleton, WI. It was a blast, and I finally have time to show you some pics! Sam and Juan decided on red and ivory roses, and I added seeded eucalyptus as an accent. The pieces were really simple and elegant. We got to create the brides bouquet, the grooms bout, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, 4 groomsmens bouts, bouts and corsages for the parents, alter arrangements, a memorial arrangement, a toss bouquet and an absolutely magnificent cake… the hightlight of the wedding for me!

Onto the pics:

The Bride’s Bouquet: A simple hand tied bouquet in a mix of ivory and red roses collared with seeded eucalyptus. The stems were wrapped in ivory ribbon and accented with red pins.

The Groom’s Boutonniere: An ivory rose boutonniere accented with seeded eucalyptus and a simple tape wrapped stem.

The Bridesmaid’s Bouquets: Hand tied bouquets of red roses collared with seeded eucalyptus. The stems were given the same stem treatment as the brides.

The Groomsmen’s Boutonnieres: A simple red rose bout with a kick! This basic red rose boutonniere with seeded eucalyptus has a tape wrapped stem accented with black bullion wire. This wire adds a nice glimmer. A very inexpensive way to spruce up a bout.

The Toss Bouquet: A simple mixed flower toss bouquet.

And last, but certainly not least, the cake. Sam had given us an inspiration photo of how she wanted her cake to look. It was a lot of fun recreating this beautiful cake. Roses in different shades were placed layer after layer, and the table was covered in ivory and red rose petals.
