Trisha and Andy were married at the beautiful Wilder Park in Elmhurst and had their reception at the contemporary & chic Westin Lombard. Their colors were shades of purple with green accents and some white. Flowers including orchids, sweet pea, spray roses, roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, peonies, hanging amaranthus, and foliage like maidenhair fern and silver sage.
For Trisha’s bouquet, I mixed peonies, ranunculus, vanda orchids, cymbidium orchids, lisianthus, hydrangea and sweet pea together to a perfect mix of purple and white blooms. The bridesmaids and Jr. bridesmaid bouquets were made with roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, spray roses and dendrobium orchids. The bouts and corsages were all made with vanda, cymbidium or dendrobium orchids with silver sage foliage. There were also floral wands for the flower girls that were adorable and we also provided 2 white cymbidium orchids for the bride’s hair to match her bouquet flowers.
The ceremony site was so beautiful that we did not have to do flowers–I mean, it was in a garden–problem solved!!
For the reception, I made a huge weeping willow tree–the couple had a special place in their hearts for willow trees! So I made a fake one with a large manzanita branch and hanging amaranthus inside of a floral base. We also provided a birdcage card holder with floral accent on top and moss mats for the escort card/gift table.
I decorated the cake with orchid and rose clusters and we put petals on the cake, cocktail, and sweetheart tables.
The centerpieces were two styles–one was a medium rectangle vase with mixed arrangement and manzanita branch with orchids and hanging votives and the other was a short mixed arrangement in square vase.
The flowers for this wedding rocked and so did the venues!! It looked so awesome!
I wish Mr. & Mrs. Delacruz a lifetime of happiness! Congrats!
