Wedding Sneak Peek!

Here is a peek from our July 17th wedding! The bridesmaids carried a colorful mixture of orchids, roses, dahlias, hydrangea, and sweet pea. For the reception decor, Ian suggested the addition of sugar cane into the centerpieces to incorporate an element that is special to the Bride's family as they are in the sugar cane industry. In addition, we used lilies, orchids, birds of paradise, and tropical foliage to help round out this beautifully unique design. Enjoy!

Colorful Detail Idea

We came across this whimsical photo and loved the different strands of fabric and ribbons swagged above the happy couple. It is such a neat way to add visual impact to an otherwise bland space. Enjoy!
