i know.. i know... i haven't updated my blog for 2 weeks. i apologize. but i had such amazing and exciting 2 weeks because i was working on this wonderful project - decorating a wedding! this post is not directly related to furniture or home decor, but i decided to show you what i had done for this wedding. sorry there's no professional photos in this post though.the bride is one of my best friends; it was truely my pleasure to become her wedding decorator and coordinator. i have designed furniture, interior spaces, gardens and show booths but the only wedding decorations that i designed was my own. it was great to know that she had such faith in me. we all know how it is - all girls want beautiful weddings in spite of the sizes of the weddings. the more she trusts me, the bigger pressure i put on my own shoulders. i promised to give her something a bit different from what she has seen in other weddings. the boutonniere shown above was designed for the groom, bestman & the parents.
this boutonniere is designed for the ushers and the MCs.
'teejay's flower shop' - all the flowers in my kitchen. getting ready to work on them.
the bride's bouquet. this fragrant bouquet is consisted of lisianthus, salal leaves and a variety of roses.
i created this simple and light bouquet for the maid of honour. used lisianthus, roses, and salal leaves - same as the bride's flowers.
2 flower arrangements on the sanctuary's center stage. i wanted to give a bit of decorous feel in the santuary, so i kept the colours to the minimal. still wanted elegance and not overly festive. i chose lilies, snapdragons, carnations, roses, and hydrangeas. submerged aspidistra leaves to cover up the messy stems in the vase.
teejay working on the 'cones' for the pews. after the ceremony, we transferred all these flowers from cones to glasses; re-used them as the centerpieces for the banquet in the evening. for those of you who extremely dislike baby's breath (i'm one of you), you can consider of using waxflowers instead. bigger and more interesting blooms makes fuller arrangements but less lacey (cheesy).
aisle runner with rose pedals (required by the bride). glued rose pedals and rhinestones on the runner to form their initials.
pew flowers and sparkly initials.
garland and ribbons for the sanctuary entrance.
festive flower wreaths for the church entrance. used carnations and spray chrysanthemums. thanks to my favorite 3M Command adhesive and hooks, we could easily hang these wreaths on the glass doors.
flower arrangement at the santuary entrance to welcome guests. the droplets of roses enchoed the bride's bouquet.
centerpiece for the head table. i named this 'sushi.'
flowers are connected by the fishline for the wedding car decorations. we are car lovers - absolutely against sticking pom pons on cars. no sticky substance was used on the car surface.
the couple decided to give daffodil bulbs as their wedding favours. we put them in brown bags, printed the thank-you's and planting instructions on colourful paper
anquet setting. we reused every bloom to decorate the restaurant. that beautiful artistic cake topper was made by the groom! it's the bride with her violin, the groom with his artist brush and their puppy.
place cards. i stapled satin ribbons onto a canvas with wood frame then slipped the place cards between the ribbons and the canvas. the couple can use the them as bulletin boards after the wedding.
congratulations to my dear friends! i love you guys!
