Spring at the Crysalis

This past weekend I worked on a wedding at The Crysalis Inn & Spa in Bellingham. I had beautiful weather & some amazing fragrant flowers to work with. I had so much fun with the location, the flowers, & most of all working with the bride & groom. Congratulations Toby & Dan!
Peonies, Freesia, Lilly of the Valley, Rannunculus, Tulips & Oriental Lilies were the main flowers. We were hoping to get some lilacs too, but the early spring & wonderful warm weather made us miss out on that by just one week! However, even with out the lilacs, these arrangements were still packed full of spring flowers & lots of fragrance.
Both the ceremony arrangements above & the mantle arrangement shown below at the reception had Fairy Lights incorporated into them. A request the bride made for these LED lights after she saw them online. Once the ceremony arrangements were taken indoors, then the lights were more visible.
A submersable LED light was also incorporated into each of the centerpieces to add more dramatic lighting for the evening reception.
