Blue & White Wedding Inspired by Delft Pottery

Greenacres Art Center is an absolute dream of an event venue.

 With stone walls, lush grounds, and unique architectural elements, Greenacres' ability to recast itself through florals, linens, lighting and design always delights.

Details...

For the wedding ceremony we created a floral arch woven with eucalyptus, rose, peony and hydrangea that stood in front of a shallow, stone pool. The bride carried a hand tied, pale white and blush bouquet with smooth, rounded barely opened peony, white and pink roses and silvery dusty miller. Bridesmaids wore navy and carried smaller bouquets with bright pops of magenta and brilliant white hydrangea.

Magenta, blush, vibrant green and brilliant white carried through to the reception. Table arrangements were a harmonious mix of the floral palette in a variety of clear glass vessels, silver vases and delftware inspired blue and white pottery. White paper lanterns hung from the open tent hovering above tables covered with white table cloths and blue monochromatic ikat linens.

Keeping blue out of the florals allowed both the pottery and fabric designs to play a larger role in the overall design. The white of the florals bridged the gap between the decor and the flowers. The blue patterns added a light, watery and relaxing mood to the evening and were a perfect artistic compliment to the robust peony, rose and hydrangea.

Floral Abundance Garden Wedding at Smale Riverfront Park

Evelo_Wed_526.jpg

Caroline, the bride said it all when she said "If you dream it, it can be done!".

Florals and miles of greenery took center stage at this bright, summer garden wedding on the Ohio River at Smale Riverfront Park. From macaroon sized succulents tucked into tiny glass cases to verdant runners cascading over the ends of long dining tables covered in sparkly fabric - every detail lent itself to creating a lush, alfresco garden atmosphere.

Caroline and Shane exchanged vows under a romantic floral ceremony arch with the iconic Roebling Bridge in the background. We wanted the ceremony's floral elements to balance the strong geometry of Smale Park's landscape. The asymmetrical ceremony arch was created using blush and white roses, peonies and a variety of greenery including the broad leaves of the hydrangea.

At the tented reception in the park's Anderson Pavilion we constructed hanging gardens thick with the same floral combinations we used in the floral arch.  Pale lime and white hydrangea orbs hung from satin ribbons, suspended in midair like perfect spherical blooms. 

Caroline envisioned flowers everywhere so in addition to tablescapes robust with garden beauty, we created an abstract floral wall of flowers that hung on the wall behind the wine bar. Dense clusters of silver dollar eucalyptus, almond blossoms, layers of roses in blush, white and cherry pushed against peony and hydrangea to create a truly memorable work of art.
