Traditional fall colors are always a good choice for a November wedding. Earlier this month, we combined reds, oranges, and burgundies to create an autumn theme.
The bridal bouquet was created with orange and red roses, burgundy calla lilies, safari sunset, red hypericum berries, and green pittosporum.
The bride and groom were great to work with. They were open to ideas within their fall color palette but did request burgundy calla lilies for the boutonnieres. We paired them with red hypericum berries.
The mothers’ corsages echoed the look of the boutonnieres.
This was a second marriage. The bride and groom have five sons between the two of them. Their boys had their own special boutonnieres (that we think are so cute!).
The wedding and reception was at the Audubon State Park Museum in Henderson, Kentucky. This is a great venue for a smaller wedding. The outdoor area is a perfect backdrop for a ceremony and the rotating art galleries in the hall provide great decor.
Each table had a cigar box filled with painted daisies, hypericum berries, pittosporum, ornamental grasses, and sticks. Assorted pumpkins and gourds also decorated the table.
We provided other arrangements around the reception hall as well.
When planning for an event, we always over order flowers. Some flowers are damaged in shipping, which we account for. Some flowers come in smaller than normal, so we account for that as well. Also, we have to order some flowers in larger quantities than needed. So, what do we do with the extra flowers? The arrangements above are an example.
We placed arrangements around the hall, at the entry table, on the cake table, and wherever we found a place!
This was a great way to end our fall wedding season!
