What a beautiful day this was in early May! May tends to be my busiest month of all – even surpassing the “wedding month” of June.
The wedding was, at that time, my biggest one yet! I was a little nervous but it all turned out lovely. The purple and green colors carried well throughout the wedding.
Bridal bouquet – all purple hydrangeas, lisianthus, stock, and ‘Cool Water’ roses wrapped in white satin ribbon with purple and white rhinestone bracelets (bouquet bling).
Bridesmaid bouquet – green hydrangeas, ‘cool water’ purple roses, purple carnations, purple lisianthus, and green hypericum berries.
Entrance to sanctuary. Aisles flanked with trailing flowers and greenery leading to the candle garden and cross garland.

Reception decorations: each vase stood approximately 5.5′ tall and contained various flowers. White dendrobium orchid stems were inverted into every vase.
