The Please Touch Museum, March 2013

| Philadelphia Museums, Wedding Flowers


Another blast from the past! Suzanne and Kirk were married a while ago now in March of 2013 at the Please Touch Museum. I cannot stress enough how much fun the Please Touch is for a wedding venue! Suzanne managed to get it during their Alice in Wonderland exhibit which was fantastic. There are so many spots for some really unique photos and a carousel to ride (and have your ceremony in front of!).

Suzanne’s flowers were all about color, texture, and uniqueness. For her and her maids, Suzanne had gathered tons of broaches to have made into bouquets. The variety of textures, colors, and styles really worked together for a very eclectic look. The boutonnieres were bright orange freesia with seeded eucalyptus for texture and bright blue ribbon around the stems.

The centerpieces matched the boutonnieres in shades of orange and bright blue. Rather than the standard green leaf lining the glass vase, we used blue ribbon (again matching with the boutonnieres) to bring even more color to the centerpieces. The centerpiece flowers were orange gerbera daisies, blue irises, orange pincushion protea (texture!), orange cymbidium orchids, orange lilies, Santana roses (one of my favorites) and blue agapanthus.

This wedding was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed doing something a little different for the bouquets, hopefully this trend continues!

Franklin Institute Wedding

| Philadelphia Museums, Wedding Flowers


Franklin Institute Wedding FloristI had the pleasure of working with Naomi and Josh on their wedding last July at the Franklin Institute, and I must say everything looked spectacular! This was our first event at the Franklin Institute, we really couldn’t have asked for a cooler place. From the ceremony under the stars in the planetarium, to cocktails around the giant heart, and the reception in the main hall with Ben Franklin’s statue, I’m sure the guests won’t soon forget this wedding!

Naomi’s bouquet was elegant yet fun, in shades of white and yellow. White stock and Creme de la Creme roses accent the delicate cattleya orchids that are the focus of the bouquet. The frills of the orchids wonderfully matched the skirt of Naomi’s dress!

Amaranth Florist of Philadelphia and Narberth was glad to be a part of this special wedding!
