| The Hammond Wedding @ Foundry Hall |
Foundry Hall in Athens is an icon wedding venue for that industry chic setting filled with great places for all your photo opts. For this wedding the bride chose the traditional UGA red for her roses, in which I used Freedom Roses, hand tied in a full satin ribbon wrap. Her bridesmaids carried a very chic 3 stem arm held long stem Calla Lily bouquet bound together with a simple silver cuff. To match the boutonniere accordingly we made the groom a red rose boutonniere with a bear grass loop accent to match his bride, and all the groomsmen, fathers and ushers received a white mini calla to match the bridesmaids. The mothers corsages were also white mini callas and white dendrobium orchids, which were another focal flower used in the large ceremony urn and the buffet centerpieces. The ceremony aisle was lined with red rose petals and the ceiling was draped with a sheer white linen and twinkle lights. Two candle operas were also used to create a alter area and were entwined with green ivy, which was also used to drip out of the modern asymmetrical altar floral arrangement of red and white roses, full size calla lilies, willow stick, bear grass shoots and dendrobiums orchids. A matching piece was also made for the buffet table. The large 3 tier raised cake allowed 6″ of space for stacked roses to be filled in between each of the layers for a very grand and stately look.
