Several weeks ago we worked on the very beautiful wedding of Camilla & Richard. The couple married in a church in Great Falls and their reception was held at the Halcyon House. This wedding had a very romantic and soft feel and it was one that I was dying to create.

I used cream sarah cabbage roses, pink sarah cabbage roses, candy bianca roses, sahara roses, and pale pink spray roses to create this bouquet a touch of dusty miller was added to give us a pop of grey.

Photographer Peter Bang caught this wonderful image as I gave Camilla her bouquet.  I will always cherish this image. Camilla’s delight that day was so rewarding as a designer. Many thanks to Peter Bang for sharing all of these wonderful photographs, and also to Megan Beth, who shot a lot of the detail photos of my flowers.

The front doors of The Halcyon House were decorated with the days flowers.

Mounds of baby’s breath were designed to hold the place cards. We also twisted up all of those pretty little silver wires to hold the cards. Working with baby’s breath is quite the experience, due to its dainty and wispy nature you must insert hundreds of extra stems to make a significant design. Its more than a little tedious however we were on a baby’s breath roll for this wedding. Baby’s breath will always be considered chic, and sexy in my mind after designing for Camilla. The head table also featured a mass of baby’s breath. We created a 20 foot long runner of baby’s breath. The flowers and candlelight were inserted into the babys breath runner. This design was truly spectacular. Many thanks to event planner Teresa Lee of Rex & Regina for coming up with this idea and for styling and planning such a beautiful event.

Guest tables featured gatherings of the cabbage roses and dusty miller. The linens alone on this wedding were drool worthy.

As you can imagine this was absolutely beautiful to see in person and guests must have been so pleased to be in attendance. I know I personally was blown away with the beauty around me.

Happy married life Camilla and Richard, your wedding was magical!!!
