9/26/10 Katherine & Jonathan

Another early fall wedding at Lairmont Manor. The bright apricot colored flowers looked beautiful on the grounds & really "popped", despite the clouds & drizzly rain. Katherine & Jonathan's color scheme consisted of brown, apricot, white & accents of bright green.
Professional pictures provided by Martin, a local photographer. Look for more of his work on his website: Photos by Martin.

White mini calla lilies, green mini cymbidium orchids, apricot colored dahlias &roses. A touch of seeded eucalyptus & sage added the blueish green foliage for Katherine's bridal bouquet.

Single white mini calla lilly, light pink/peach spray roses, green hypericum berry & a touch of fragrant rosemary for greenery.

Don't these bouquets look great with the chocolate brown dresses! I love this photograph too!! Bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bride's bouquet only with white hydrangea instead of the mini calla lilies.

All of the dahlias for this wedding I picked at a local dahlia farm just a mile from my shop. I always enjoy trucking around the 5 acres to find the perfect dahlia variety to use. For Katherine's aisle, I made small clusters of bright apricot dahlias, green hypericum berry & seeded eucalyptus. I then attached them to a few of the chairs down the aisle. Above & below pictures are a work in progress. The final product had brown ribbon trailing down to cover my mechanics of the bouquets & to bring in the brown accent color into the ceremony flowers.

If you look closely you can see how wet the chairs were...hence the bad hair :)
