more tillandsia and pincushions

The bride and her family provided most of the props and containers for this wedding, which was a nice personal touch. I really enjoyed the synergy that happened between their vision and my ideas. For the entry area I rented an antique mirror from Mancino Iron, which perfectly echoed the venue's aesthetic. Palm Door is a renovated loft-style building, and I can't wait to work there again.

My lovely assistant Amanda set up the wishes table...

The bride created the terrarium centerpieces shown below, with vintage ceramic figurines nestled into the succulents! I love these.

For the sign-in table we used a mix of lab glass and vintage pieces.

The ceremony area was set with a screen with votives flanked by two clusters of flowers and plants. Materials include birdnest ferns, succulents, alocasia, and tillandsia plants, wasp nests, spanish and reindeer moss, orange pincushions, kangaroo paw, red blooming passionvine, and mini pineapples.

The very long bar was flanked by two large arrangements and 3 clusters of modern glass votive holders with lab glass and plant materials.

I forgot to include this in the last post about the personal flowers-a fascinator pin for the bride to attach to her dress at the hip where the skirt gathered. Real ranunculus!

This is totally out there and totally amazing. You can tell just by the flowers that this was a special event--and that's not easy to do. Excellent work!
