That loose, romantic garden look that is all the rage now was completely embraced by Sydney and Adam’s wedding last July at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. The wedding color palette of red, ivory, peachy-champagnes and gold was at once warm, sensuous, romantic and light. Accordingly, the bridal bouquet featured red Piano garden roses, champagne and ivory roses, burgundy dahlia, red spray roses, peach hypericum berries, burgundy scabiosa and the lush greens of geranium leaf, olive leaf and jasmine vine. The bridesmaids carried slightly smaller, simpler bouquets of similar flowers. The groom’s boutonniere was designed using a simple champagne rose accented with red hypericum berries and olive leaf, while the remaining boutonnieres incorporated red roses and olive leaf.
The ceremony took place at the gazebo on the Omni Shoreham’s grounds. Red rose petals lined both sides of the aisle, creating a lovely framed walkway for the wedding ceremony.
The covering on the frame was designed using past bridal gowns from the couple’s family. We further accented the asymmetrical design with a lush posy of red hydrangea, peach stock, champagne roses, burgundy dahlia, ed spray roses, and peach hypericum berries with loose touches of geranium leaf, seeded eucalyptus and jasmine vine complementing the design with texture. Chair posies of roses, spray roses, geranium and olive leaf lined both sides of the aisle on every other row.
The wedding reception took place in the Palladian Room, with a mix of tall and low centerpiece designs complementing the grandness of the room.
Low wedding centerpieces were created using a classic garden urn filled with a hydrangea, stock, roses, spray roses, dahlia, berries, scabiosa and artichokes in shades of red, peach and champagne accented with geranium and olive leaf. The tall designs were elevated on a cathedral candle stand. Lush rounded arrangements of antique green hydrangea, peach stock and hypericum berries, champagne roses, burgundy dahlia, and red roses and orchids were finished with burgundy hanging amaranthus to lend an old world feel to the design.
