Real Wedding in White and Blue with a Touch of Bling

It’s been forever that I posted anything on the Flora Nova blog – I am so sorry for the delay – t’is the season I guess…
So, today just quickly some pictures I recently received from Olga and Damien’s gorgeous and intimate wedding at Hotel 1000 last month. I had never worked with the photographers from Lucid Captures, but I was stunned at Michael’s beautiful work capturing the beauty and emotions of the day. Thank you Michael – I love these photos!

Lots more pictures are on Michael’s blog – check them out!

Real Wedding – Candace and Don

On a Saturday this past February we had the pleasure working on Candace and Don’s wedding at the Palace Ballroom in downtown Seattle. Their wedding ceremony and reception was a beautifully romantic affair with lots of candle light and a touch of bling.

Candace wanted us to create a bouquet of “richly muted texture” and requested to incorporate her favorite flower – peach colored calla lilies. These beauties were unfortunately not in season, but we were able to get enough stems – specially flown-in from Holland – to use in her bridal bouquet. The combination of peach and mauve colored blooms with a touch of plum complimented her dress perfectly.

For the ceremony we created a gorgeous backdrop of orchid garlands, crystal hanging votive candles, and sparkly crystal candelabras, which were propped onto softly draped pedestals. It couldn’t have been more romantic than that!
The reception tables were draped in gold embroidered overlays and two variations of table center pieces created visual interest. One centerpiece style was lavish and mixed in a footed glass bowl, the other was a composite design using various glass vessels of different style. We used flowers in mainly peach and ivory mixed with just a few pops of light green. Gold Chivari chairs completed the look and added to the elegant and romantic feel of the reception.

Thank you so much, Stephanie Cristalli for sharing these beautiful photos with us!

Luna & Yanda :: Elegance in the Park

Luna contacted us on fairly short notice (relative speaking…). She was still living in Vancouver when she first emailed me, and moved to Seattle only a few weeks before her wedding day in June. Her sweet personality and really fun ideas for her wedding day made this project fun from the start.
The wedding ceremony was held at Queen Anne’s Parsons Gardens right off of Highland Drive – it was our first time there: a very idyllic beautiful little park overgrown with large rhododendron bushes (which were in full bloom on her wedding day – even in the colors of her wedding!).
The intimate reception for close family took place at Canlis Restaurant – we created a fun table scape featuring pink peonies (Luna’ favorite), wheat grass bowls with a few blooming branches, and lavender sprigs on each place setting.
The truly artistic and gorgeous photography is from one of Seattle’s finest: John & Joseph Photography.
