September 12, 2010 - Nicki and Richard's Wedding

On Sunday afternoon, the soft afternoon sun streamed into the 10th floor windows of the Grand in downtown Fresno, creating an ethereal feeling of excitement and peace all at the same time. For their wedding, Nicki chose a soft and romantic color scheme of champagne and gold with dark purples, magentas, and fuchsia pinks with a hint of green. 

I loved making Nicki's bouquet - it had these luscious purples, deep pinks and magentas with super romantic ivory spray roses.

Her attendant's carried smaller versions of Nicki's bouquet, just without the ivory spray roses.

For her two flower girls, we create silk kissing or "pomander" balls for them to carry. Silk flowers are often used to avoid any breaking or loss of flowers and to also ensure that the child has a special keep-sake from the wedding.

As the guests entered the ceremony, they were greeted with an elegant arrangement of purple stock, dendrobium orchids, dahlias, and hanging green amaranthus.

For their ceremony, we used our two silk Bay Laurel trees in large chocolate urns decorated with fresh antique hydrangeas and magnolia branches.

In the adjoining reception room, we created a taller centerpiece using Manzanita branches with attached magenta dendrobium orchids with a "pop" of color in purple lisianthus and green hanging amaranthus. The base of the vase was filled with fuschsia rose petals to give it a bit more color. The centerpieces looked beautiful atop the champagne overlays.

On the remaining guest tables, we used Janet Seibert's metallic candle holders and created a lush arrangment to sit in the middle.
