Audubon Hall at Independence Grove is a long, narrow room, which can present a challenge to any floral decorator. (The first thumbnail shows the north half of the room.)

By placing eifel-tower arrangements (top photo) on half of the guest tables and smaller table arrangements on the other half, the room was given more dimension.

A lattice backdrop with fresh greenery and Baby's Breath framed the bride and groom against an otherwise plain wall.

The bride and her attendants carried upright bouquets of Stock, blue Dendrobrium Orchids, Freesia and Roses. The bridal bouquet featured pearl-tipped Stephanotis.

Our second bride for the day carried an upright
bouquet of Roses, Dendrobrium Orchids, Freesia
and Calsinia (the first thumbnail shows an alternate view of the same arrangement).


 

 

 

 

The attendants carried the same flowers with more
color (second and third thumbnails). Two of the
flower girls carried small upright bouquets and two
more carried basket arrangements (fourth thumbnail).

Boutonnieres and corsages were of Calsinia and Dendrobrium Orchids (fifth thumbnail).

The "Matte" Gerbera Daisy (which matched
the color of the attendant's dresses) was the
feature flower in this wedding.

The bride carried a hand-tied bouquet of
Roses, Gerbera Daisies and Calsinia wrapped
in ivory chiffon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flower girls carried baskets that featured  arrangements in the front and a pouch of fresh Rose petals in the back. The girls also wore hair combs made to match the arrangements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The attendants (first thumbnail) carried three Gerbera Daisies and three Roses. 

 

 

The last thumbnail shows the toss bouquet.

For our second wedding of the day, the popular
Sterling Rose was the feature flower.

 

 

 

 

The upright bridal and attendant bouquets included
Sterling Roses, Bullet Allium, Statis, Freesia and
Dendrobrium Orchids.

 

 

 

 

At left, thumbnails show the altar arrangement, table
centerpieces (each with a dozen Sterling Roses and petals scattered at the base) and our decorated
gift mailbox (available for rent).
