The bride's dress was blue, the groom wore a skull tie and the arch was adorned with Creep, a spider/skull creature that was the first gift the bride bought the groom when they started dating. Quirky but totally them.
Choosing the colors blue and purple, the bride let me design the flowers from there. I adorned the arch, which they made, with gorgeous large purple and white tipped dahlias. The blue was brought in with iris and additional greenery was added with hops and clematis vines. The vases on the stands held similar flowers, with the addition of cosmos and butterfly bush.
A closer look a the arch and flowers. Pictured are the groom and his mother, having a bit too much fun while taking pictures!
The corsages were made with these really cool purple and white dahlias. The colors were streaks, like someone had painted them on. Also included hops and verbena.
Dining tables were topped with vases of garden flowers: dahlia, iris, cosmos, oregano, pineapple sage and caryopteris. I wasn't sure how the blue and purple would look together but was really pleased with the final designs. Definitely helps to have such beautiful flowers to work with, all locally grown in Mount Vernon, WA.
