A Garden Wedding Pt. I

The bride chose navy bridesmaid's dresses but still wanted a Spring look for her wedding at Norfolk Botanical Garden.

I chose to lighten everything up with pastel colors - petal pink, butter yellow, and spring green. Each goes well with navy and look great together!

For the bride's bouquet I used Sarah Bernhardt peonies, green hydrangea, yellow/green parrot tulips, and Skyline roses. I collared the bouquet with Lemon Leaf and a simple wrap of ivory silk satin.

The ceremony site is beautiful on its own so we kept it simple. Urn arrangements held pink Larkspur, Bells of Ireland, Curly Willow, hydrangea, Esperance and Skyline roses and Sarah Bernhardt peonies. I also included greens - Salal, Variegated Pittosporum, Myrtle, and Fatsia leaves.

The altar arrangements frame the fountain and accentuate the stone balustrade. Our votive lanterns line the aisle.

The ceremony was at dusk so we used candles and tied them with a simple, clean satin bow. For a daytime wedding moss and a few blooms would be another option.

I love Renaissance Court at Norfolk Botanical Garden, beautiful from any angle.

Stop by on Tuesday to see the reception. Thanks!
