Make of it What You Will

I am in love with these florals. In love. It's like the bride gave the florist a couple adjectives of what she wanted and told him/her to "make of it what you will" and run with greens and whites with hints of yellow. In turn, she received the most beautiful creations. Ever.
The bride's bouquet (above right) complimented the groom's boutonniere (above, left center) perfectly. The groomsmen's boutonnieres were similar but not matchy-matchy. The bridesmaids bouquets (below, left) had punches of yellow that glowed against their black dresses yet blended perfectly into a soft bouquet. Touches of lemons were added throughout the day (below, right)and were a welcomed detail. I won't even begin to tell you how much I adore the bridesmaid's lemon shoes!The place cards were pinned to a lemon which made them sweet and far from sour. Rustic table numbers were flanked by yellow flowers that made quite the statement.

The tables were and are a delight. The lemons did all the work in giving the tables that "wow factor." Simple leafy centerpieces flanked the tables and added texture to the tablescape.
This wedding is just another example of how the vision of the wedding was shaped through the bridal party flowers, the brides bouquet and the groomsmen's boutonnieres. What's not to love?!

I really love the idea of a mixed variety of floral arrangements, rather than all of the bouquets and centerpieces being the same. Creates depth and personality.

And, I love the yellow you've been featuring lately, too!
