An Eggplant & Emerald Wedding

Megan and Jeremy were married at St. Christopher Church in Midlothian and their reception was at William Tell Banquets in Countryside afterward. Megan and Jeremy’s colors were dark purple and emerald with white and flowers included 3 different varieties of orchids, hydrangea, stock, Bells of Ireland, football and spider mums, and sweet pea.

For the personal flowers, Megan wanted a white and purple bouquet of hydrangea, peonies, cymbidium orchids, sweet pea and vanda orchids. It looked fabulous and smelled awesome! The handle was wrapped in a piece of her Grandmother’s dress and there were 2 charms with photos of her Father and Grandparents in them. The bridesmaids wore plum dresses with eggplant waist bands and carried bouquets of mostly purple with green accents and emerald green handles. They also got an initial charm tied around their handles as an added accent. The corsages and bouts consisted of orchids, orchids and more orchids!

For the ceremony, we just did a monogrammed aisle runner and DIY bride Megan made silk pomanders for the aisle.

For the reception, we did a quad of square vases at different heights for the escort card table. In each height was a different look and flower type. One was cymbidium orchids wired to curly willow branches, one was submerged vanda orchids with a floating candle on top, one was Purple Crown Dendrobiums on silver sculptural wire, and submerged hydrangea in the last. Orchid heads were scatted on this table as well as the head table and cocktail tables. The centerpieces were done in 2 styles: one was a short, round mixed arrangement and the other was a trio of submerged orchid cylinders surrounded by a floral rim. They both were awesome!

I loved working with DIY bride Megan to plan her wedding flowers and decor! She had a lot of great ideas and it was nice to see them all come together!

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Christoffel!
