Purple and Blue Blooms at Riverside Receptions

Rachel and Jason were married and had the reception at Riverside Receptions in Geneva, Illinois. Their colors were purple and dark blue and flowers included hydrangea, orchids, roses, and lisianthus.

For the Personal Flowers, I designed an all-color bouquet for Rachel that had dendrobium orchids, vanda orchids, purple lisianthus, lavender roses, and dark blue hydrangea. The bridesmaids carried bouquet of white hydrangea, lavender roses, dendrobium orchids and lisianthus. The Jr. Bridesmaid carried a white hydrangea pomander and the bouts and corsages all consisted of orchids and roses to match everything else.

The Ceremony was set up in the downstairs of the venue in a beautiful room with chiavari chairs and cobblestone floor surrounded by windows. Blue hydrangea was hung from the chairs going down the aisle and lavender petals were put down the lining the main aisle. The arch was decorated with foliage and flowers as well to serve as the perfect setting to exchange vows.

The hydrangea from the chairs was later reused in vases around the venue. They also rented our signature rectangle card holder with monogram. The monograms also went on half of the centerpieces, which were squares with ribbon wrapped around them and hydrangea in them in purple or blue tones. The other style centerpiece was a trio of short cylinder vases filled with floating purple and blue hydrangea and floating petals. The cake was also decorated with hydrangea, roses and orchids and the head table got petals, orchids, and vases for the bouquets.

It all looked SOOO beautiful! I really loved the chair sashes that the Bride’s grandmother sewed just for the wedding. They were the perfect shade of purple!

I wish Rachel and Jason a lifetime of happiness and am so glad that our team could be a part of their big day!

Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Busch!
