Fall wedding at La Provence

For this La Provence wedding we used the lower ceremony area under the beautiful old oak tree. We placed a moss covered heart on the tree and then 2 french provential stands.
The aisle was adorned with large rod iron stands with large florals for a dramtic walk down the aisle.

Rebecca's dad and brother walked her down the aisle

For the bride, antique garden roses, bouvardia, snow berries, rosemary, and ostrich feathers.

The flower girl carried antique roses, with ping pong scabiosa and ostrich feathers

Scottish Wedding with Family Plaid

For the mothers we went with Victorian Tussie Mussies

My first wedding of 2010 was a small intimate affair. The lovely bride, Margaret, flew in from New York and was married at the Monte Verde Inn.
Margaret is from Scottish Heritage, and so we used her family plaid to wrap her bouquet and the boutonnieres.
Flowers used, Amarlyis, roses, dusty miller, rosemary, ranuculus and various berries.

Tropical Summer Wedding with Lady Slipper Orchids

The wedding took place on the brides property the Palm Lake Retreat.
The evening started out with a ceremony under the tent on the lawn and them moved over to the sand area for dinner and dancing. There were Margaritas on the boat dock and boat rides around the lake for guests.
A great way to have a beach wedding without travling to the beach.
