A beautiful example of a garden themed wedding, Roya and JB divided their day by color; bright purples, blues, pinks and blush for their ceremony and a softer palate of peaches, ivory and white for their elegant reception in the Pink House Ballroom.
Guests at Roya and JB’s wedding were greeted initially by cones of ti leaves filled with a lavender, sweet pea, thistle, hyacinth and freesia, hanging from the doors of the church.
Sweet bunches of pink wax flower, ranunculus and heather, as well as white roses and magnolia leaves, tied with ivory satin ribbon marked the pews .
In contrast to the small cone arrangements on the doors and the pew markers, the ceremony site was decorated with large arrangements of blue delphinium and thistle, green bells of Ireland, green hydrangea, pink wax flower, heather and magnolia leaves.
The littlest attendant was given a darling halo of fragrant lavender to wear.
Roya’s waterfall bouquet contained the same bright blue delphinium and soft purple sweet peas as the bridesmaids bouquets, but overall was softer with blush roses, as well as white roses, and white lilac.
Petite centerpieces of pedestal votive holders accented with blue thistle and hanging amaranthus were the perfect decoration for the cocktail tables at the reception.
The elegant, classic charm of the Pink House Ballroom was the perfect backdrop for the arrangements Roya and JB selected for their reception.
The guests tables were decorated with arrangements of peach stock and roses, white roses and hydrangea as well as variegated parrot tulips and green hanging amaranthus in gold pedestal bowls. The napkin at each place setting was dressed with a single piece of purple lavender.
The long banquet-style head table was both graceful and dramatic with alternating taper candles and low arrangements of peach stock and roses and white roses, ranunculus and hydrangea in light-catching mercury glass containers.
The only bright color at the reception came from clever and budget-conscious reuse of the bridesmaids bouquets on the cake table.
Another highlight of the reception was Roya and JB’s wish tree. Manzanita branches decorated with white cymbidium orchids, green hanging amaranthus and crystals made up the tree on which Roya and JB’s guests hung their best wishes for the bride and groom.
Harvey Designs wishes Roya and JB all the happiness in the world in their future.
