I realize this title is a wee confusing-but Julie was our intern from Fox Valley Tech over last fall's semester. With her daughter Kelley's wedding around the corner, we spent a good amount of time talking wedding plans as she learned to wire and tape corsages (one of her favorite tasks! Hee Hee!) And while we had the pleasure of really creating Kelley's vision, we just happened to chat with the Mother of the Bride a lot on this one!
The bridesmaids wore clover, almost "kelley" green dresses that were so cute! They had pockets! Cute and functional-you can't carry a purse as a bridesmaid and as a bridesmaid, you need lipstick. I honestly wanted one-in black of course! (Those who know me, know my fondness for wearing black-but the green was lovely!) To see more pics, check out their photographer, Erin Jean's blog. Some amazing pics on there!
Kelley's bridal bouquet of white hydrangea, roses, callas, stock, freesia, hypericum, and orchids. (Say that three times fast.)
Bridesmaid's bouquets of stock, roses, hypericum, callas and orchids (and bear grass loops too!)
Kelley really had a heard time pin-pointing the color scheme she wanted to go with. At one point, purple was being boycotted due to the groom's dislike for the Minnesota Vikings. While I can relate to that, it wouldn't convince me to give up purple! We convinced her to disregard his viewpoint on that! (And I think the end result was worth it!)
Centerpieces of dendrobium orchids, branches with suspended votives and bear grass.
This was the first time we created this look with the bear grass-it was love at first sight for me! I love the added green it provided-so fresh.
The cake adorned with dendrobium orchid blossoms and little twigs of birch. Votives bound with knots of bear grass.
And a very special presentation of the cake knife and server-on a bed of wheat grass bordered by orchids.
Congratulations Kelley and Scott!
