Modern Rivers Wedding

Posted on December 1st, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. No Comments

This modern rivers wedding proves that different can be beautiful. When Susan began her process with us, she had a unique vision for her wedding. She wanted a modern and natural wedding with many architectural elements like hanging terrariums, succulents, and manzanita branches.

The bouquets were a gorgeous combination of peonies, roses, freesia, anemones, and brunnia berries. Susan and her bridesmaids looked stunning in all white with hints of grey, navy and greenery from the bouquets.

Hanging from the ceremony arch were floral-filled terrariums, such a unique and stunning addition to the ceremony. Trickling into the cocktail hour were details of succulents that ultimately led to the modern arrangements on the reception tables. With planning by Amelia Cole Events and photography by Greyes Photography the wedding had a wonderful vendor team and a seamless day throughout.

We wish Susan and Matt the very best for their new chapter together, here are some of our favorite photos from the big day:

Mary Ellen & Chris came to us with a jewel tone color palette, perfect for a Fall wedding!  They were looking for modern, colorful centerpieces that would provide a wow-factor for their guests.  We covered the tables with gunmetal-gray table runners to help bring out the deep, rich colors of the floral palate.  For the centerpieces we used a variety of square vases, ranging in size, to give a modern look, and filled them with lush, tropical blooms and foliage.  The delphinium that we used was some of the most beautiful delphinium I have ever seen!  The head table was quite possibly my favorite part of the wedding to design.  We created a very unique, linear centerpiece with the large … Read More »
