Happy Anniversary Honey! by Ashley

One of the signs of a happy marriage is when time flies.  This week, I am celebrating my two year anniversary with my wonderful husband Will, and it feels like just yesterday.

By definition, an anniversary is “a date that is remembered or celebrated because a special or notable event occurred on that date.” So today, I would like to dedicate this blog to reminiscing about the flowers that made our wedding so unique and visually fantastic.gloriosabouquet

Sometimes, “more is more,” and the bouquets, constructed differently for each individual bridesmaid, certainly reflect this philosophy.

Will, the Groom, is indeed a creative man, and took on the task of researching and designing the men’s boutonnieres.

This arch, with full stems of purple vanda orchids, was the perfect frame for the most important words of the day.

We went with two varieties of cocktail decor – the ever classic floating candle grouping, and an abstract aluminum wire sculpture. The sculptures were inspired by Will’s Paul Smart Ducati motorcycle, which had its own place of honor at our wedding, after all, marriage is about compromise:)

Extremely lush, the colorful, voluminous table arrangements were made even more whimsical by the fastening of gloriosa lilies and orchids to curly willow branches.  Another lively detail was the use of brightly colored wire in the flutes of the trumpet vases.

When all is said and done, it is the people who are there that add the true magic and love to the day.

I love my Enchanted Girls!

    Nice blog post. I have never seen such a wedding concept. very nice seen accessories and the beautiful flowers. Is that Ducati motorcycle? is it the motorcycle with style cafe racer? I really like it. looks more classic, powerful and luxurious. such as merging two different things, strong and soft.
