The simple palette of the wedding flowers added to the classic elegance of Alexis and Brian’s Hotel Monaco wedding, Oct 2015. Bridal flowers include: pastel pink and ivory rose, white hydrangea bouquet and floral arrangements with pink garden roses, white peony, seeded eucalyptus, and greenery.
At Amaranth Florist we love the incredible architecture that provide a backdrop for many of the photos. The bridesmaids in black continued the elegant and classic theme at this Philadelphia wedding.
Megan and Erik were married almost a year ago at Pomme Restaurant in Radnor, Pa. Her flowers were simple and had a rustic, garden-like feel to them which fit quite well with the atmosphere of the restaurant.
Her bouquet was all soft colors with white hydrangea, peach spray roses, cream garden roses with pale yellow centers, pale pink peonies, and white ranunculus. Megan’s bridesmaids had simple bouquets of all white hydrangea with the stems wrapped in twine.
For her centerpieces, Megan wanted multiple smaller arrangements rather than one large arrangement, which I think looks great on those long tables. Each one was a little different. Some had just hydrangea, some had just roses, and some had a mixture of the two, but all of them were in terra cotta pots and accompanied by a few votives in mercury glass.
Lauren and Tim were married in August at the Phoenixville Foundry, PA. They had wonderful end-of-summer weather which made for some beautiful outdoor photos at the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The bright colors Lauren chose worked so well together–her centerpieces popped perfectly against the blue of the tablecloths. Coral and blue is quickly becoming a new favorite combination of mine!
The bridesmaids’ coral dresses were a great backdrop for their bouquets of gerbera daisies in shades of watermelon and hot pink as well as ivory roses. Lauren’s all-white bridal bouquet had hydrangea and fragrant garden roses.
Lauren and Brad were married earlier this year in April at The Old Mill in Rose Valley. The Old Mill is a fantastic venue, and one I always look forward to doing an event at. The interior of the building is so charming, and there are a million beautiful photo opportunities around the grounds. They even have a little waterfall! Lauren’s color choice went so well with the sunny, spring day she was married on. For her centerpieces, she really wanted blooming forsythia branches to bring the outdoors inside. As the forsythia was just beginning bloom, amassing such a quantity was challenging, but turned out so well! The tall yellow branches perfectly suited the atmosphere of the reception room at the Old Mill.
The bridesmaid’s bouquets included daffodils, roses, ranunculus, tulips, craspedia, and matched the centerpieces in shades of sunny yellow. Yellow flowers against dark navy dresses always looks so good!
The bride’s bouquet was a traditional mixture of white and ivory flowers, but had so much interesting texture to it. Flowers such as garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses, tulips, waxflower, and hydrangea made a wonderfully springy bouquet. Lauren also brought heirloom lace from a family member’s wedding veil for us to wrap around her bouquet handle. I love little touches like that!
Lisa and Doug were married on May 10th this year at the Fairmount Park Horticultural Center in Philadelphia, Pa. The Horticultural Center is a beautiful place to have a wedding! The interior is incredible, and the exterior is just as beautiful. Their long reflecting pool is a wonderful focal point for a ceremony, and while the greenhouse comes practically pre-decorated with all of the greenery, it’s amazing seeing the transformation once all of the tables, flowers, and guests arrive.
Lisa’s simple, elegant all-white bouquet was composed of garden roses, spray roses, calla lilies, lisianthus, ranunculus, and lilac. It was so fragrant! The garden roses and lilac have such a wonderful scent to them.
Her bridesmaids bouquets were very vibrant in lavender, purple, light blue, deep pink, white, and a little burgundy. They had standard and garden roses, ranunculus, delphinium fleurettes, hydrangea and peonies. Again, between the garden roses and the peonies they smelled so good!
