Vintage Backyard Wedding

Chris & Chelsea were married September 14th, 2013.  They have been partners for many years and were ready to make it official!  The couple chose a vibrant color scheme of yellow, red, blue & brown.  We made the flower bouquets and boutonnieres for their special day.

Chis the groom wore a very cool vintage vest in place of a traditional suit.  Chelsea the bride had been collecting vintage millinery flowers for us to use for the boutonnieres.  We used these vintage flowers and leaves and added delicate yellow waxflowers to give it some life.

For the bridesmaid bouquets we used blue hydrangea, tweedia, red ranunculus, cornflower, marigolds, dahlias, zinnias, and some rose hips accented with yellow waxflower.

Chelsea found the perfect vintage dress in Vancouver, B.C.  She also found this amazing blue fascinator that inspired us to use the blue hydrangeas in the floral designs.

For Chelsea's bouquet we focused on large blue hydrangeas.  We added in large yellow garden roses, red zineas, red ranunculus, blue tweedia, cornflower, red dahlias and some yellow waxflower.

We added some delphinium blossoms to the flower
girl's hair.  She passed out fresh flowers to seated guests including dahlia blooms, delphiniums and zinnias.

We also made a ton of crepe paper flowers for party crowns the guests gave as favors at their reception party at Full Tilt in Ballard.  The couple supplied quarters for pinball and had a variety of homemade pies served with Full Tilt's ice cream.
