It was a Ludwig family wedding reception at the National Aviary on June 30! Dana and Mark chose flowers in a subtle color pallete of blush, white and ivory. The flowers were offset with containers, votive candles and chargers finished in metallic silver and rose gold.
White hydrangea, white roses and white majolika spray roses filled out the centerpieces for the round tables.
The long tables featured oblong centerpieces with the same flowers.
The long tables also had table runners of greens and baby’s breath.
Three of our brides this week chose low centerpieces of roses and hydrangeas for their reception tables. Yet even using similar flowers, each wedding is a unique vision. When it comes to flower arrangements, a change in color can mean a major change in the final result!
Our first centerpiece features a stunning color palette of purple hydrangea, ivory roses and green hypericum in a 6″ bubble bowl. In order to keep the price within budget, these hydrangea are actually blue hydrangea tinted with purple floral dye. Blue hydrangea are less expensive than the natural purple ones, and we think the paint actually gives the flowers a richer depth of color.
This centerpiece also uses tinted flowers. Here green tinted hydrangea are combined with natural white hydrangea. Spray roses and babies’ breath complete the arrangement, all in a 5″ glass cube.
Our third centerpiece also uses hydrangea and roses. Pure white hydrangea are paired with vibrant Cherry Brandy roses and Stargazer lilies. All are arranged in a 6″ bubble bowl.
Our featured wedding this week was a spectacular vision of white with gold and crystalline accents. The bridesmaids carried white hydrangea studded with cream and blush roses, crystals and pearl strands, with gold and rhinestone ribbon wrapping the stems.
The flower girls carried silk pomander balls, finished with fresh pink mini spray roses, rhinestones and gold ribbon.
The reception centerpieces at the elegant Saint Nick’s Cathedral Room were designed with white hydrangea, cream and blush roses, carnations, baby’s breath, feathers and metallic gold greens. Crystals hung from the tall centerpieces, which alternated with low centerpieces.
