My lovely bride choose her gown at an antique store and had it altered. It had a slight lavender hue to it, so beautiful. To fit the vintage gown we created a presentation style bouquet using calla lillies and garden roses. Then wrapped the stems in real satin. I think it is one of my all time favoirtes! For her bridesmaid we went with multiple colored calla lilies in purples. then added fall colored roses and tied it with silver satin. The Chuppa was constructed out of birch and done simply to not compete with the beautiful ceremony area at Hans Fahden. Guests went from the ceremony area by the pond up the hill to the tea room for cocktails and the into the beautiul wine cave. Rather than placing centerpiece down the table, we construced a runner of twigs, succulants, flowers, grapes and hundreds of candles.
