Brookeside Gardens, The Carnegie Institute and Woodend

As many of you know, in addition to running my own business, Sweet Blossoms, I am also lucky enough to assist Lisa Sommer of Petals and Promises in several of her wedding designs.  The images below are designed by Lisa, and created by me.  All images are used with her permission.

The wedding below took place at Brookeside Gardens.  I created several tall arrangements to flank a beautiful water fountain and we also decorated a stunning gazebo for the ceremony to take place under.

These arrangements are made with curly willow branches, Bells of Ireland, white hydrangeas, and white roses.  The gazebo is decorated with curly willow, white stock, and white roses.

 This next wedding took place at the Carnegie Institute!  I helped to create a beautiful floral arch filled with flowers and candles for the ceremony, as well as several grand arrangements for the reception.
 The arch is covered in several garlands of greenery, green hanging amaranthus, white stock,and white roses.  The aisle arrangements are with green hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus, white dahlias and hung with a white satin ribbon.  The tall arrangements are a 30 inch glass trumpet vase filled with curly willow, Bells of Ireland, white calla lilies, and purple liatris.

This final wedding took place at Woodend.  These beautiful outdoor ceremony arrangements contained curly willow, yellow calla lilies, yellow gerber daisies and yellow oncidium orchids.  The lighting was perfect!

I am so privileged to be able to learn from Lisa.  Her designs are lovely and I am thankful that I'm able to gain such experience by carrying out her designs!
