October 27th: Jill & Nick

Another one to add to my list of favorites! Jill wanted a very natural, botanical look for her flowers. She really didn't want them to be to "flower-y" at all! I picked up everything I could find at my wholesaler that I thought fell into that range. The only identifiable flowers I used were mini callas, champagne roses, & hydrangea. Everything else was some kind of foliage, pod, berry, or unusual flower type.
I used berzilla berry, arabicum, stars of bethlehem, leucadendron, bush ivy buds, magnolia leaves, smoke bush, & even a few things that I don't know the name of! The bridesmaids wore chocolate brown dresses, so the various shades of greens, cream, & browns looked gorgeous!
The reception tables housed a few different centerpiece styles. On some tables I filled cube vases with chartreuse moss & inserted stems of stars of bethlehem & curly willow. They had sort of a natural, unstructured, whimsical appeal to them.
Other tables had a wide glass cylinder vase that served as a hurricane to 3 assorted size pillar candles. The candles were accented with hydrangea blooms, canella pods, & magnolia leaves.
The pew flowers at the church were clusters of hydrangea, berzilla berries, champagne roses, & smoke bush. The stems were placed in water picks & covered with chocolate brown ribbon. The bride took these from the church & placed in cylinder vases that were on the remaining tables at the reception.

The wedding was held at Country Club Christian Church & the reception was in the Broadway Room of the Uptown Theatre, both in Kansas City, MO.

Help!!!! I have been searching for cylinders just like that for my sons upcoming wedding. They want to do a simple centerpiece of 3 ivory pillars on a gold charger with red rose petals, but the venue wants all flames enclosed. Can you let me know where you found yours? Thanks so much!
