Jamie & Andrew: The Villa at Ridder Country Club, East Bridgewater, MA

Jaime and Andrew's wedding was the ultimate definition of a "winter" wedding.  They got married on February 8, 2013, the same day the blizzard of 2013 decided to hit!  I haven't heard how the wedding went with the driving/travel ban starting at 4PM, and power outages starting a few hours later around the South Shore, but as of 3:30PM when I finished my final delivery stop, the wedding was still on and set to start at 5PM!  The wedding coordinator, Katelyn, and the staff at The Villa were amazing.  They had the room set and ready to go like it was any other day, and were extremely professional and calm with handling the situation.

 The bridesmaids bouquet was made up of burgundy and plum carnations, gerbera daisies, and roses.
 The centerpieces were made up of roses, lisianthus, carnations, cremon, calla lilies, and gerbera daisies.
 The guest book and card table both had a taller arrangement of stock, orchids, lisianthus, cremon, gerbera daisies, and roses.  We decorated the fireplace mantels at each end of the room with varied height vases filled with submerged purple dendrobium orchids and floating candles on top (picture not shown).

I don't have any pictures of the church flowers which was my last stop of the day, because to be honest, the roads were starting to get pretty bad, and I just wanted to get my butt home and off the roads!

Colleen & Tim: Pinehills Golf Club, Plymouth, MA

Colleen and Tim kicked off my 2013 wedding season with their January wedding at the Pavilion at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA.  Colleen and Tim wanted their wedding to have a vintage, wintery feel.
The bride's bouquet was made up of roses, spray roses, dusty miller, calla lilies, hydrangea, and lisianthus.
The bridesmaids carried a slightly simpler version of the bride's bouquet.
 The bar and place card table had small arrangements of roses, freesia, hydrangea, lisianthus and dusty miller.  The centerpieces were made up of white dendrobium orchids submerged in varied height vases with a floating candle on top (picture not shown, but similar to the centerpieces for Kerry & Adam's wedding in 2011).

The Last of the 2012 Weddings

This post is about 4 months late, but I can't start the new year off without finishing up the last couple weddings of 2012.  My second to last wedding on 2012 was for Grace and Jason, who got married in Harvard Square, and had their reception at the Sheraton Commander Hotel.  Grace was such a fun bride to work with!  Here are a few pictures from their wedding last October.

The bride's bouquet was made up of calla lilies, roses, orchids, celosia, pin cushions, hypericum berries and safari sunset greens.
The MOH carried a slightly smaller and simpler version of the bride's bouquet.
The table centerpieces were made up of a mix of high and low arrangements.
The tall arrangements were made up of curly willow branches, calla lilies, and mokara orchids.
The bride found the unique bronze urns used for the low centerpieces.  We filled the urns with a mix of seasonal fruits, flowers and greens, which included, roses, celosia, dahlias, pin cushions, berries, pomegranates, orchids, safari sunset greens and more!
 The place card table arrangement was filled with large dahlias, orchids, celosia, safari sunset, and curly willow.

My last wedding of 2012 was Emily & Joseph, who had their reception in the Tirrell Room in Quincy, MA.  The main wedding colors were red wine and gold, but we kept the bride's bouquet on the lighter side with ivory and champagne roses mixed with white ranunculus, accented with gold ribbon.
The bridesmaids carried a mix of roses, spray roses, ranunculus, mums and cremon.
The toss bouquet was made up of a mix of flowers from the bride and bridesmaid bouquets.
 The mothers carried posy bouquets of ivory roses with hypericum berries and accent greens.
