As you may know, Cedar Grove Gardens loves, loves, loves to feature our bides here on our blog. I recently put out a call to Brides past and present to be featured and have gotten a few submissions. (Exciting)! This one comes to us from Kate and Pat.Their venue was the gorgeous Seaport Hotel. Their Vows were recited under one of our 4 post Chuppah’s that we decorated to the nines with graceful trailing greenery, garden roses and cymbidium orchids. All of the photos featured below are from Kate Joyce Photography
Kate’s bridal bouquet was stunning and a bit unconventional while boasting a warm color palette of green cymbidium orchids, gold mokara orchids, russett calla lilies and baby green hydrangea. The subtle touch of a freesia floral comb was the perfect hair accessory.
Her bridesmaid’s carried a cluster of green cymbidium orchids. Some had a rich burgandy throat and others were solid green, they were nestled above baby green hydrangea and had a collar of ladies mantle to soften the edges.
This sweet flower girl held her bouquet of russet calla lilies like a princess.
Our bouquets look great creatively displayed on top of the piano
…and the cake was from the award winning Konditor Meistor we decorated each tier with theme flowers…cymbidium orchids and roses…i bet it tasted as delicious as it looks!
The centerpieces that Kate and Pat decided on were split level highs and lows, they look great at the Seaport Hotel. Beautiful peonies, hydrangeas, garden roses and mokara orchids set atop a glass pilsner vase with curly willow insert.
… the low arrangements were designed in a 6″ glass cube with thai leaf insert and feature gerbera daisy’s, asiatic lilies, roses, gerbera daisy’s, spray roses and cymbidium and mokara orchids. I love how the Seaport Hotel installed pin lighting on the ceiling, it always showcases our flowers beautifully!
Thank you to Kate and Pat for submitting these great photo’s so that we can add a resource to brides from all over.
