We had the pleasure of working with Bonnie and John at the Loft on Lake. Michelle Durpetti from Michelle Durpetti Events had created an inspiration board for Bonnie and John with lots of bold colors, candles and peacock feathers. Bonnie, the bride, was not afraid to use bold colors. Her colors were white, teal, saffron orange, hot orange and touches of yellow.
Bonnie carried a gorgeous bouquet of white dahlias, yellow cymbidium orchids, unique orange roses, white peacock feathers along with flamed mango calla lilies and touches of seeded eucalyptus. Bonnie’s gown had a beautiful rhinestone buckle at the waist so we decided to add an adornment to her bouquet handle to match. There is nothing wrong with a little sparkle.
The bridesmaids wore teal dresses therefore we decided to do lots of unique orange roses, flamed mango calla lilies and seeded eucalyptus. The bouquets popped against the teal dresses.
John was such a fun groom so we decided he would be the perfect guy to wear a peacock feather within his boutonniere. He wore a saffron mokara orchid along with a peacock feather.
Bonnie and John wanted an intimate feel to their ceremony. MDE suggested a ceremony in the round to give guests a front row seat to the action and surround them during the ceremony. Bonnie also had a vision of paper lanterns to soften the room and give it a warm glow in the evening. In addition, we draped the backdrop in white chiffon fabric to hide the built in kitchen (which was hiding the cake and sweet table) and also serve as a way to frame the ceremony with our two tall arrangements of james storei orchids.
Paper Lanterns Galore in Yellow, Orange and White
In keeping with Bonnie and John’s love of bold colors we decided to add peacock feathers, hot orange asiatic lilies, white dahlias and pincushion proteas along with yellow alstroemerias to the the orange unique roses.
Tipsycake provided their dainty and delicious cake
Congratulations Bonnie and John!
