Grace and Eric’s rustic October wedding started out rainy, but the cloudy weather made the colors of their bright florals even more vibrant! River Farm is one of our favorite venues – as the home of the American Horticultural Society, it is filled with beautiful gardens and vistas and is a flower lover’s dream. The bride carried a loose, draping bouquet in peach and ivory tones, accented with deep purples and burgundies, and filled with unusual textures. Flowers included ‘Juliet’ garden roses, pale pink ‘Sweet Eskimo’ roses, white stock, and stunning ‘Cafe Au Lait’ dahlias, studded with eggplant calla lilies, burgundy scabiosa, seeded eucalyptus, burgundy agonis foliage and trailing jasmine vine. The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets with slightly more touches of the deep purple.
While the groom’s boutonniere included a rose from the bride’s bouquet, the rest of the men’s boutonnieres simply featured the lush greens that were woven throughout the wedding. Perfect!
We loved the hand made signs that the bride and groom provided to us to put in the large floor standing urn arrangements to direct guests between the ceremony and reception. They really added a unique touch to this adorable wedding! And nothing beats a gorgeous table centerpiece of spilling greens and lush textures in a silver mercury glass bowl. Love showcasing those amazing dinner plate ‘Cafe Au Lait’ dahlias!
