Real Weddings: Corinna and Hide / Yamashiro, Hollywood, CA

It was a colorful wedding in red, purple, and pink at Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood. Corinna carried a hand-tied bouquet of purple hydrangea, pink cymbidium orchids, purple mini calla lilies, and deep red roses.
Each bridesmaid carried a similar, but simplified, bouquet of purple hydrangea and deep red roses.

Hide wore a pink cymbidium orchid boutonniere accented with horsetail, while the groomsmen and family members wore purple mini calla lily boutonnieres, also accented with horsetail.

The mothers wore wristlet corsages made of pink cymbidium orchids and purple mini calla lilies.
For the centerpieces, Corinna and Hide requested bright and vivid colored flowers arranged in a unique and modern design. Each table sat six guests and we placed a rectangular centerpiece in the center. We topped the surface of each black wooden box with purple or plum carnations and arranged a row of short pieces of horsetail down the mid-line of the box. Then we arranged, in parallel, red and fuchsia ranunculus, plum anemones, and magenta dendrobium orchids around the horsetail. As a finishing touch, we weaved several lengths of purple midollino around and throughout the flowers and horsetail. These unique and colorful centerpieces were a big hit!
