BRITTANY AND JOHN AT HILLENDALE COUNTRY CLUB

The Wedding of Brittany and John

I knew as soon as Brittany walked into our first meeting that she was going to be a stunning bride and as you can see, I was right. But I also loved that she wanted something simple and elegant, romantic, soft, traditional with a twist.  We chatted for a while and she showed me pictures of pieces that she loved and it didn’t take long for me to see that that ethereal look that can only come from the once maligned Baby’s Breath was perfect for this bride.

For the bride and her maids we went soft and traditional with blushing pink Bridal Akito roses, white Calla Lily, fluffy white Ranunculus, Dusty Miller foliage and just a few touches of Baby’s Breath. The bouquet was creamy-sweet and the maids’ smaller nosegay pieces were perfect against their charcoal grey dresses.

The boutonnieres were the perfect complement to the bouquets–white Ranunculus set in sprigs of variegated Pittosporum and backed with textural soft Silver Brunia Berry. But the real show-stopper (other than the bride) had to be the Baby’s Breath centerpieces.

Baby’s Breath, once known as the “filler flower,” is making a comeback, but this time it’s playing a lead role in some of our most beautiful weddings. This is not your mother’s Baby’s Breath! The new varieties of Gypsophilia are fluffier and thicker than the prom varieties I remember from days of old. For Brittany’s reception we created these centerpieces atop crystal stands for elegant high pieces on her tables. The overall look was stunning–like clouds floating throughout the room.

Since Brittany and John’s wedding we have used Baby’s Breath in other weddings–for wreaths, place card table pieces even maids’ bouquets, and I’ll be sure to post those pictures as they’re made available to us. It’s fun, an affordable choice for high pieces, and it just looks pretty!

Congratulations to Brittany and John and thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

It’s all in the details…


It’s all in the details, and what could be a more lovely detail than  bright white anemone with that adorable blue-black polka-dot center? Lindsay’s January wedding was simply beautiful and we couldn’t have been happier with these beautiful bouquets and centerpieces.


Dusty Miller is the perfect foliage accent to a mix of Cool Water Roses, Ranunculus, and those stunning local Anemones. And they were just perfect with the maids’ beautiful dresses.


We lightened the color palette just a bit for the centerpieces and added romantic gold mercury glass votives to the table–perfect touch for a winter wedding!
