Green and White

25 Jun

I can’t believe it is already June and the long awaited summer has finally arrived here in the Pacific Northwest.  Granted, it is hit and miss – I think we were spoiled by the wonderful May we had and now that we are seeing the rain again we are whining about it!  I bring this up because when I was working on this wedding (out in my driveway, under my tent) I battled a crazy hail storm with high gusts of wind, which, since I had not been able to tie down the tent, forced me to stand out in the elements while holding the tent and praying it wouldn’t fly away on me!  It’s moments like this that I realize being a home based operation can sometimes be a challenge.

This wedding was back in March and  the colors were green and white with accents of gold.  When I first met the bride it was only three weeks prior to her wedding, so we had to scramble and get things figured out.  Since budget didn’t  permit us to do large arrangements on every table,  we alternated with clusters of candles placed on gold chargers surrounded by small votives.  Since she loved candles as well, the balance was overall very pleasing.    The wedding was held at Pickering Barn in Issaquah which is an old dairy barn converted into a great event space.  The room is long and high ceilings so the tall arrangements complimented  the space.

The brides bouquet was made using white roses, pale green roses, mini green hydrangea, white hydrangea, green parrot tulips, white ranunculus, green ranunculus,white lisianthus, green hypericum berries, white freesia and maidenhair fern.



Centerpieces consisting of the same flowers with the addition of Bells of Ireland.





As always, my wonderful friends Meredith and Alissa of Maris Events did a wonderful job bringing everything together and making things run smoothly.
