Abbey & Joe ~ October 16th


Unlike any other wedding I have ever done!! Well mainly because surprise my son decided to show up a month early when I only had one wedding left for the season before taking some much needed time off with my newborn!! It was a challenge but in the end it all worked out so well and the bride was in tears talking to me about how much she loved her flowers and decor!! This is truly why I LOVE what I do!! Abbey & Joe's wedding was all about bold fun colors in hot pink, cobalt blue and a mix of hot orange and bright green! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Hilton Garden Inn in St Paul! While I was unable to go and set up (a big THANKS to Kelly and Mary for making this happen) the room was absolutely stunning in pictures.

Abbey wanted a all pink rose bouquet and her bridesmaids to have a mix of all the bold colors against their bright cobalt blue dresses!! The groom and groomsmen all had orchids and family had a mix of calla's, roses, dahlias and daisy's all in a variety of colors!!

We did a couple different centerpieces the first being these cobalt blue wine bottles with a 3 simple stems of Gerbs in hot pink!!

The others were our votive stemmed candles with piled rose petals at the base in orange and pink!

She wanted to do a different style for her parents tables so to mirror the votive candles we used an enlarged version of these on their tables with floating candles and flowers!!

Lastly they went with the harvest style head table and I always suggest to my brides to do a large centerpiece of some sort being these tables are so big and can look bare with just the bouquets or something simple. I LOVE how this head table turned out with the new candelabras that CME got this season!!!

Congrats Abbey & Joe, thanks for letting me help create such a beautiful wedding! Have a blast in Mexico. More pictures to come from the professional, can't wait to see them :)
