Sumptuous dark purple tulips tied with lively green satin ribbon mark the pews at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.
Instead of corsages, the mothers of the bride and groom carried little tussie-mussies of flame and yellow calla lilies and mini green cymbidium orchids, so sweet!
Smaller bouquets of green cymbidium orchids, dark purple tulips and orange calla lilies, as well as red hypericum berries, are set off against the vibrant red bridesmaids’ dresses.
Abigail’s bouquet was a generous gathering of deep red standard roses brought to life by twigs of silver with delicate crystal buds.
Abigail’s bouquet wrapping was champagne satin with a band of taupe on which was tied an heirloom brooch to commemorate loved ones.
The groomsmens’ boutonnieres were a yellow calla lily and red hypericum berries to coordinate with the bridesmaids’ bouquets.
Ed’s boutonniere coordinated with Abigail’s bouquet with the exception of being accented by red hypericum berries instead of crystal twigs.
The cocktail tables at the private residence where Ed and Abigail celebrated their wedding were cylinder vases of striking green cymbidium orchids topped with a floating candle.
Candlelight continued to decorate the reception space with beautiful lanterns placed around tall arrangements of birch branches decorated with green cymbidium orchids.
The cluster of lush green cymbidium orchids was the crowning glory on Abigail and Ed’s simple white frosted wedding cake.
