The weekend's weather was something less than desired for a wedding or most anything. However, the dreary rain and cold temperatures would not dampen the spirits of the events. The past few days were filled with weddings and festive formals. Each event had its own tempo and theme. I loved them all for what they were. I will post photos of each. Since tonight I am wide wake (where I should be sound asleep after this weekend), I will start off with a soft, dreamy and most definitely romantic wedding of :
Shelby & Ernest
at the hidden gem: Barclay Villa (http://www.barclayvilla.com/) in Angier, NC. Rocky Top Hospitality (http://www.rockytophospitality.com/) catered the event and as always they are a dream of a team to work with...special thanks to Kevin D....you are the best! The cake looked too good to ever eat and I must give much compliments to Sweet Memories http://www.sweetpmemoriesbakery.com/. Donna is a true artist. And, lastly, the woman that pulled it all together, Tracey Adams. http://www.adamsandevents.com/ Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication and ability to smile through it all.
Here are a few photos of the flower arrangements from Shelby & Ernest's wedding. I am anxiously waiting for the "real" photos from the great team of Carolian Media Star http://www.carolinamediastarweddings.com/. I finally met them in person. What a fun team and super professional.
The bride's bouquet was an unstructured mix of viburnum, green hydrangeas, white parrot tulips, green scabiosa and helleborus/ lenten of rose. I love this combination for an early spring wedding. Shelby sent me a photo that gave me the inspiration.
The maid of honor's bouquet was a mix of soft pink, coral and spring green. Garden Roses, Peach Parrot Tulips, Freesia, and 'Mozart' Antique Peach Callas were just the right colors to help warm up the cool day.
The warm color scheme carried onto the centerpieces. Low bowls and apothecary jars were filled with flower similar to the maid of honor's bouquet.
Tall Vases of Cherry Blossoms were ultimately places on banquet tables. The wedding was initially proposed for the outside garden. However, last minute changes happen in life and the wedding was moved inside to the great hall. The centerpieces provided color and ambiance to ceremony/ the dinner tables flanked the chairs during the ceremony. After the ceremony, the tables were moved and arranged by the very efficient Rocky Top Catering team. Quick thinking and the ability to go with the conditions made for a very beautiful wedding.
