Wedding Bliss

No, this is not a model from a bridal magazine, this is Heather Foley, and I had the honor of creating all of the flowers for her & Shane's wedding, which was such a joy. Not only is Heather stunning, but she is extremely intelligent and sweet as the day is long. She and her family were amazing to work with over this past year, and I just felt so blessed to be able to contribute to their day of joy. I hope that you enjoy looking at some of the photos from their wedding!
This is one view of Heather's bouquet. I used peonies, roses and wax flower with gold wire ribbon woven underneath for a more formal look...
I also surprised Heather with this antique brooch as an extra embellishment. It is something that she can use and treasure for the rest of her life and possibly hand down to one of their children for their wedding day.
Here Heather shows Shane the brooch on her bouquet. I was so touched when I saw this photo. I knew that she was thrilled when she first saw the bouquet, but it made me so happy to know that she loved it this much!
This is Heather's mother Linda who is just as sweet and loving as Heather, and is the epitome of southern sweet and a true lady. I made small bouquets of pink & white spray roses, freesia, wax flowers and greens, for the mother of the bride and groom to carry instead of the traditional corsage and they both thought that it was very special.
The bridesmaids bouquets were made of pink spray roses with pink lisianthus and were wrapped with gold ribbon...
The flower girl carried a basket filled with fresh pink spray roses, wax flowers and greens.
The pews down the center aisle of the church were adorned with bouquets of pink and white roses, pink lisianthus and variegated ivy trails and plump white ribbon and tulle bouquets.
The altar was decorated with large bouquets of baby's breath and a centerpiece created in a large vintage milk glass bowl filled with pink & white lisianthus, pink and white roses, and lots of pretty greens. It was given to Linda, the mother of the bride, after the wedding as a gift.
The unity candelabrum flowers were a larger version of the aisle bouquets...
Heather wanted low centerpieces so that all of their 200+ guests could speak to one another without anything in the way. It truly was an elegant room! The cake, as you can see, was quite elegant with simple flower bouquets and sprinkled rose petals. All in all, the evening was amazing from start to finish, and I do feel truly blessed to have been able to contribute to such a special day in two such incredible people's lives.
I hope that you enjoyed these photos! If you have any questions, just send me an email to sanya@inthepinkantiques.com, or just leave me a message on the blog!

I love how your flowers were so simple and elegant. And I really love the color choices - very traditional. The flowers on the cake were a nice touch too - and the bride is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing - and yes, I will most likely use a little brooch on my bouquet....thanks for the idea!

Love,
Elizabeth
