Blue and white is a classic wedding palette and this design uses several classic wedding flowers. To be honest, I didn’t plan the design to look like this. I was going to use thistle as a blue accent. But, the thistle did not come in. That happens sometimes and I have to improvise. So, I used classic blue hydrangeas and delphinium and the results were beautiful.
Along with blue hydrangea and delphinium, I used white roses, spray roses, wax flower, and local gooseneck loosestrife. The gooseneck loosestrife adds interesting shape, texture, and a burst of pure white into arrangements. I just wish the season lasted longer!
The green accents were made of fuzzy dianthus balls, elegant Italian ruscus, and two other foliages from my garden. The green and white variegated solomon’s seal adds brightness and lasts most of the summer. The other greenery is a mystery to me. I have asked so many people to identify it with no luck but it is thought to be some form of honeysuckle. All I know is that it is prolific, has incredible vase life, and I’m lucky to have an entire hedge of it.
This was an intimate wedding with the wedding party consisting of the bride, groom, and the groom’s two children. Pictured here are the boutonnieres for the groom and his son.
The groom’s daughter wore a flower crown.
Two arrangements were created for the altar and then transferred to the dining table at the reception.
The ceremony was held in the chapel at Trinity United Methodist Church in downtown Evansville.
Congratulations Lauren and Neil! I wish you all the best!
