Delaware Wedding Florist: Jennifer & Dan at Harry’s Savoy

I loved working with Jennifer and Dan for their wedding!  It was like a mini high school reunion.  Jennifer and I went to high school together along with her photographer, Brownlee Honeycutt of Honeycutt Photography, and her DJ, Mike Simmons of Must Be The Music DJs.  Their wedding took place at the beautiful Harry’s Savoy Ballroom in Wilmington, Delaware.

Jennifer and Dan decided to get married on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.  I thought it was a brilliant idea since all of their family and friends would be in town for the holiday.  Plus, all of the dancing would help burn some the calories from eating so much turkey!

Their weddings colors were plum and white. The plum added a richness and regal feel to the wedding.  I adore the orchids, roses, hydrangea, freesia, lisianthius, and stock used to create the gorgeous round bouquets.  For an added touch, we trailed Picasso calla lilies through Jennifer’s bouquet.

For Jennifer’s something old, she tasked me with the “nerve-racking” job of cutting lace from her mother’s wedding veil to wrap around the base of her bridal bouquet.  I can’t remember how much reassurance I needed before I cut into her mother’s veil. Ugh.  However, I absolutely love bringing a special and sentimental touch to a wedding.

Delaware Wedding Florist: Snowy Day Bouquet & Boutonniere

It is cold, wet, and miserable outside today. But compared to all of the snow that we got last year, this winter has not been that bad. I was looking through some pictures from last winter and came across these. I was inspired by the snowy weather to create an untypical winter bouquet and boutonniere. I love the colors and textures.

What would you like in a winter bouquet? Does all white speak to you? Or red and green?

Newark Wedding Florist: Tereesa & James at White Clay Creek Country Club

You could just feel the love between Tereesa and James.  They were planning their wedding here in Delaware, but they lived in Arizona.  So, you can imagine each meeting was very important.  I loved bringing Tereesa’s vision to life.  She wanted a classic, elegant look with a touch of country.

The patio at White Clay Creek Country Club is like a blank canvas just waiting to be decorated.  What started as a concrete slab was transformed into a gorgeous ceremony place.  Between the white chair with navy chair sashes to the navy and white striped aisle runner, each of these items brought a layer of Tereesa’s dream alive.  The aisle was lined with copper lanterns flickering with candlelight and hydrangeas and bear grass.  The altar was anchored with a trio of lanterns on each side around a wooden crate.  Flowers were tucked in around the lanterns and on the arbor with white sheer fabric draped around.

Congratulations Tereesa and James!  Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!
