i first met cameron and her mom last year and we hit it off immediately! i'm sad the wedding is over, because it means our planning time together has come to a conclusion but the result was beautiful! clean, simple and beautifully blush.
the ceremony was originally set for the italian gardens at the crane estate, the weather was not cooperating so, inside it was! down the aisle we added white cylinder vessels with white satin ribbon filled with blush pink peonies (cameron's favorite flower, and mine as we all remember)
to set the alter, 2 white cast iron garden urns were placed at the front of the aisle. local rose bushes (light link, of course) were used as ceremony arrangements. the rose bushes were such a nice idea, plants that you can add to your garden as such a lovely reminder of your wedding day!
black and white family wedding photo's in silver and mercury frames were really nice for guests to look at!

white cylinder vases with pale pink hydrangea and miranda garden roses on each cocktail table
|think outside of the box for table numbers... cameron fell in love with silver make-up mirrors with delicately painted white numbers for each table under the tent|
under the tent along the stone patio walls, groupings of white pillar candles in vases added ambient lighting at another height. the tent had great up lighting and votives on all the tables, bringing the glow of the pillars to the outline of the patio is a great idea!!

under the tent the guests were sat at round and long rectangular tables. each table was dressed in white linen with silver napkins. centerpieces brought just the right amount of pale pink to the tent.
on each round table set a grouping of 3 vases, a small filled with garden roses, medium with peonies and a tall with hydrangea.
down the long tables, a similar just slightly larger arrangement of vases added nice color from one end to the other. when doing multiple vases per table you price with increase as you are adding more flowers and vases. a nice way to soften the price point is to add in bud vases with large blooms in the gaps down your table scape. cameron's long tables with 6 bud vases each with pale pink peonies
a closer look at the centerpieces...
