Nadea & Esat: Hampshire House

When Nadea first contacted me about flowers for her September wedding, she asked me to meet her at a little place called Bread and Chocolate.  Are you kidding me?  There's a place called Bread and Chocolate?  Why didn't they just name the bakery Heaven!?  If you live in Newton - check it out.  Their hot chocolate will knock your socks off!

The bride carried a soft bouquet of hydrangea, roses, ranunculus, dendrobium orchids, and cymbidium orchids.

Nadea came up with such a great color scheme of white, eggplant, cranberry and blush, and it worked so perfectly with her and Esat's venue, The Hampshire House, a historical mansion in Beacon Hill.

Nadea and Esat were able to use the centerpieces for both the ceremony and the reception.  For the ceremony, the arrangements were placed around the room, on the piano and tucked into the floor to ceiling bookshelves.  The arrangements were made up of hydrangea, orchids, berries, roses, ranunculus, calla lilies and safari sunset greens.

For the ceremony we also decorated the mantle, which is where the ceremony took place.  We wanted to create a soft, elegant look with lots of orchids and candlelight to have a backdrop for the ceremony and pictures.

A close-up of all those orchids!  We used white dendrobium orchids in addition to the white and blush cymbidium orchids.
