| The Carlson Wedding @ The Bradford House |
This summer wedding filled with colorful flowers from start to finish. While the picked a traditional white and ivory bouquet for her flowers and ceremony area, featuring white mini calla lilies, Vendella roses, and Pearl head Stephanotis with a galax leave cuff. The groom wanted Auburn football colors incorporated for the wedding, so the compromise was made to have some orange flowers with the featured mango callas and blue dresses. Since the bride was not thrilled about it being all blue and orange, we added in the the fuchsia of roses to break up all of the orange tones. The bridesmaids wore blue and carried a colorful mix of Latin Lady roses, with golden yellow and mango mini callas. The mothers corsages and all botoneries were the feature mango mini callas with burgundy hypericum berries. The flower girls kissing ball or pomander was created in white Gerbera Daisies to keep it light in weight since roses can be heavy, and the venue did not allow for petals to be scattered. The ceremony area was all white, with sheer white tulle draped over the covered porch to create an arbor effect, with two greenery bow tie to secure them in place. Matching aisle marker lined the the reserved rows for the family seating and two large entry urns welcomed the guests with white Casablanca Lilies, Gerbera daisies, Vendella Roses and Alstromeria. The reception area had large bubble bowls arrangements of Latin Lady roses, mango calla lilies, orange Spray roses and Orange tiger lilies, surrounded by votive candles. While outside there were small highboys with Auburn orange spray roses in specimen jars. The cake had a lovely cascade of white mini calla lilies, Vendella roses, and Pearl head Stephanotis to match the brides bouquet, which was placed in front of large multi colored mantle arrangement.
