Justine and John were married in the Century Chapel at Naper Settlement and had their reception at Carriage Greens Country Club in Darien. Their colors were black and ivory with accents of red. There was a subtle bird and damask motif throughout the event. Flowers included anemones, hydrangea, dendrobium orchids, roses, sweetheart roses and tulips.
For the personal flowers, Justine carried a beautiful bouquet of white hydrangea, lisianthus, sweetheart roses, roses, parrot tulips and anemones with black centers. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of anemones a with hydrangea base. The bouts were made of anemones and the corsages had sweetheart and regular roses in them.
For the ceremony, I made a custom monogrammed aisle runner and parent offerings.
For the reception, we made 2 styles of centerpiece. Style one was a tall pilsner vases with hydrangea, manzanita branches decorated with bling and orchids with an up-light in the bottom. Style two was a 12 inch cylinder vase with submerged white dendrobium orchid stem inside, black bear grass accents and a floating candle on top. They sat atop damask circle runners that I sewed. I also made a damask runner that we put across the head table along with a vase for the bridal bouquet. We put the monogrammed part of the aisle runner on the head table as well. One of the best details of the day was the awesome cake which was beautifully decorated with bird silhouettes and intricate scroll-work. I added some fresh anemones to complete the look.
It was a beautiful event and Justine loved everything from her bouquet to the centerpieces–she could not have been happier! I really enjoyed working with her on she and John’s wedding. It was a beautiful affair!
Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Wilson!
