Congratulations Skyler and Jared!!

On Saturday, I got to deliver flowers for Skyler and Jared's beautiful outdoor wedding!  It was a perfect, summer day and they were beaming as only newlyweds can.  I have LOVED working with Skyler and I'm so happy with how all of the flowers turned out.  It was a big wedding, but so very FUN too!!
Picture perfect Mr. and Mrs.
This was the wonderful color scheme that I got to work with!  When we first met, we settled on this bright and bold scheme and I'm so glad we did.  It was just gorgeous for a July wedding!
The handsome groom, Jared.  We coordinated his bout. with Skyler's bouquet.  I used a yellow calla lily and an orange spray rose.  Love the way it popped on his sand colored suit!
The beautiful bride, Skyler!  Who was being serenaded by her groom in this that sweet or what??  She wanted a mostly yellow bouquet with touches of orange.  
So, I used yellow calla lilies, yellow roses, orange/yellow combo roses, orange mini gerbera daisies, and lime green spider mums.  Bright, bold, and fun!
Oh and a few of those cute little kermit button mums too!
Now these darling girls, are just about the cutest bridesmaids I have ever seen!!  Can you believe those tangerine dresses and patterned shoes???  What a GREAT dress to work with!  We basically built the entire color scheme around these dresses and shoes and I LOVE the way it all came together.
The girls had multi-colored bouquets with yellow, orange, and touches of red, lime green and purple.  
So cute wrapped in the same tangerine ribbon.  That purple was just stunning in there with all of those bright colors!  I kept thinking of Hawaii while we were making these!
We used yellow roses, orange/yellow combo roses, mango mini callas, orange gerbera daisies, lime spider mums, red mini carns and purple lisianthus.  
And just look how beautiful those girls looked with all that color!!  
The guys wore these great sand colored suits with orange vests and ties.  We put Jared (the groom) in a yellow mini calla and the rest of the guys in mango mini callas.  Very citrus like, don't you think??  Is it any wonder I kept craving oranges all day???
A Mango mini calla and a kermit button mum make a simple but elegant bout.
The darling little ring bearer wore an orange mini gerbera daisy with a kermit button mum as well.  So cute!  Wish I had a picture of him, he was adorable in his little orange vest and tie!
Two of the sweetest parents on earth!  
The bride's parents.  
We chose a very simple and understated gardenia for Skyler's mom and a yellow rose with an orange spray rose for her dad.  I'm really happy with how their look came together.  I think I'm going to recommend gardenias for moms from now on.  It was a great way to put a corsage on a mother of the bride without it looking like she's going to prom.  Plus, they smell amazing!
These are corsages and bouts for the grandparents and below for a personal attendant.  These colors were so easy to work with, it was fun to make all of these.
This vase on the right, was a memorial arrangement for the platform of the gazebo.
Beautiful wedding party!  
Pretty gazebo.
We decided to do 4 spray arrangements instead of trying to swag a garland.  They wanted to highlight the gazebo, but not take away from the backdrop of the lake or the bridal party standing up there.  I think these achieved that!
The big moment!
Love those bright colors!!
They were married by Jared's dad, who is a Pastor.  Love that!
Inside the reception, this was the seating chart table.
These were on a dozen tables scattered throughout the room.
Aren't those yellow orchids great???
Really love when I get to do big, tall arrangements at a reception.  They make such an impact and aren't as expensive as one might think.  It just depends on what kind of flowers you use!
On a dozen more tables, we put these arrangements in bubble bowls.  
A nice contrast to the bigger, taller arrangements.
And on the rest of the tables, we used my cylinders wrapped in her tangerine ribbon.  
This was the pretty cake.
And the cute cake topper!  
I love every wedding I do and I always get to know each bride, so I'm always so happy to help them achieve the look of their dreams...But I have to say, this wedding was one of my absolute favorites because it was so happy and fun!!  What a dose of sunshine these girls were!!  Those dresses with the flowers and the green backdrop of the golf course....Makes me happy just looking at it all over again!!
Congratulations Skyler and Jared!  
It was a gorgeous day and we wish you many blessings for years to come in your marriage!!
