The flower I get the most requests for from brides is the peony. Since the tour was during the peonies short season, I had to feature them! One of my favorite varieties is the bright Coral Charm peony, which went well with the color palette choice of shades of pink with gold accents. The venue has a lovely arbor they use as a backdrop for ceremonies, with burlap curtains and vines growing on it. Focusing on adding color to the aisle, we hung gold vases filled with peonies and gold tinted leaves. The other chairs received ribbon details, which blew beautifully in the wind.
For the reception, the tables were draped in a bright watermelon colored linen, to add color to the large venue room. Each table was adorned with a collection of vases, some tall and low, in shades of gold and white. The low vase had a planted sedum. The medium gold vase had peonies. The tall white vase had gorgeous poppies and sweet peas. Next to peonies, poppies are my favorite. People had to touch them, not believing they were real!
Thanks to the lovely Dana Chrysler of Bella Vita Creative for many of these photos. She does such an amazing job, much better than me! And thank you to the other vendors who helped make this wedding look possible: Greenfield Farm and Garden, Pacific Party Canopies and Lola Leigh Events.
