Just peachy!

Right now in Pennsylvania the peaches are in season. This wedding palette of peach colored blooms is a stunning choice for late July.

BW-182 Bride's bouquet

The bride’s hand-tied bouquet included peach Juliet garden roses, peach dahlias, pink carnations, white ranunculus, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus. The bride wanted to incorporate white anemones into the bouquet, so we used silk flowers for the best show and value.

Centerpieces for the reception followed the same color theme with white and light peach hydrangea, peach spray roses, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Dahlias, dahlias, dahlias!

We love that we have a local Pittsburgh area grower for dahlias! Alpha Dahlias is located in Sewickley and is our weekly source for these beautiful cut flowers. We recommend these exquisite blooms to our summer brides for their bouquets and centerpieces.

We snapped some photos at Alpha Dahlia’s open house this past weekend. This is only a small sampling of the dozens of fabulous varieties growing on their property. Enjoy!
