The Flower Lab recently helped set up another wedding at the extraordinary Saddle Rock Ranch. It was another perfect Saturday with clear blue skies. The horses were frolicking, the zebras were snoozing, and the llama didn’t spit at anyone.
In the Persian tradition, the bride and groom sat at a table laden with nuts and sweets during the ceremony. Here, we decorated the canopy with sheer organza draping and accented with white hydrangea and green cymbidium orchids. Centerpieces of white hydrangea lined the front of the table and two tall manzanita trees framed the bride and groom. The trees were decorated with puffs of hydrangea, cymbidium orchid blossoms, hanging crystals, and floral spheres comprised of green kermit poms.
Individual green cymbidium orchid blossoms accented with a crystal and tied with ivory satin ribbon adorned each aisle chair. I love how effectively simple (and economical) this method of decorating the aisle chairs is.
Marjan carried a gorgeous, large bouquet of all green cymbidium orchids. Triumphal!!
Petite poseys of soft white peonies were carried by the sisters.
Cute floral spheres made of kermit poms were topped with white cymbidium orchids for a couture look.
One of my favorite style of arrangement for a long, rectangular escort card table, this arrangement of bleached corkscrew willow branches, white hydrangea, dendrobium orchids, and cymbidiums is interesting and unique.
Fluffy, bulbous centerpieces of white hydrangea have an asymmetrical flair of green dendrobium orchid stems and curly willow branch accent. They look so haute couture to me that I wouldn’t be surprised to see them jump up and prance down the catwalk!
