Jeff & Marta had a winter themed wedding. White, silver, purple & black was the color theme. Above is the beautiful bride standing at her aisle entrance. I babysat Marta years & years ago so it was fun to be part of planning & designing her wedding flowers. Below is one of her sisters Katrina. Bridesmaids carried white roses, hydrangea, lisianthus & dusty miller bouquets.
The ceremony.Manzanita branches were set on my metal stands for the ceremony then transferred to the reception and used as some of the centerpieces. The copper wire you see are fairy lights that were turned on right before the guests arrived.

Yoli & Ted's wedding was so much fun to be part of! Another Libolt wedding & they are all so fun! Here are just a few pictures last minute we remembered to take. Many fun details about this wedding, just didn't capture everything. Details not seen are cultural details from both Yoli & Ted. A little bit of Mexico + a little bit of Scotland + add a woodland, elegant, winter feel, + music & food = one good time! Guests were seated at the dinner tables for the ceremony as space is tight at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal. I love this option for tight spaces and it can be a very elegant option as well.
Half of the tables had tall centerpieces, & the other half low centerpieces. Lots of thistle was incorporated into this wedding. Did you know it's Scotland's state flower?
Oh how I love fall arrangements. Texture, color & beautiful foliages! What was more exciting about this wedding was making a new friend who might be in my neighborhood in 2012! Thank you Shannon for letting me use wheat, millet, lotus pods, apples, fall leaves & lots of flowers! Congratulations Dave & Shannon!

Moss ring bearer pillow...loved it!
Fall twist on a curly willow arch. Originally was going to use vine maple leaves, but a windstorm took care of that! "Plan B" was cutting the last of the japanese maple branches hanging on to these beautiful yellow leaves. For me, I find it funny that when my first plan falls through, I always like replacements better.
