Fresh and Fuchsia
Late last year I decided it was time for Just Fresh Concepts to branch out into decor. As excited as I was about the idea I never expected that our first full decor and floral wedding would fall only five days after the due date of my second pregnancy. Of course I had lots of support and nonetheless I was there in full gear, five days overdue setting up and taking down. Thank you to all of my helpers, this was one incredible wedding.
Our bride and groom are beyond perfect for one another and have quite a romantic story of how they’ve know each other since childhood, in the end were reunited and are now married. Cindy had only a few specific requests for her wedding she wanted fuchsia and silver after several meetings the rest all magically came together. Just about everything for Cindy and Jason’s wedding was custom made, from the napkin rings to the seating chart, the candle holders, table numbers and all other decor. Nothing was overlooked. When you entered the venue on your left was the guest book table accented with flowers and a chair for guests to comfortably sign their congrats and well wishes. On the right was a customized seating chart with pink and white mints for guests. The hall was dressed with ceiling decor including a floral chandelier lined with cascading crystals. The tables were draped with silver pin-tuck linens and topped with bronze charger plates, napkin rings each hand made and every other different, table numbers with different frames for each table but all blending well together. And of course no wedding is complete without lots of candles.
The centerpieces consisted of white hydrangea, fuchsia stock, roses, garden roses, spray roses, anemone, wax flowers, and cascading tulips. The center of the over 30″ tall vases were filled with interesting kiwi willow that was designed to look as though it extended through to the top where fuchsia dendrobium orchids sprouted. The ceremony flowers were all reused at and around the head table and a fresh thick layer of rose petals was placed in front of the bride and groom. Dendrobium orchids were placed next the napkins for all of the wedding party and apothecary jars were used to hold the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets but in the meantime were accented with floating dendrobium fuchsia orchids. To the right of the head table on the floor sat a basket with fuchsia and pink flip flops with custom made size tags and a sign marked “Dancing Shoes – Are your feet sore? Kick off your heels and get back on the dance floor – Compliments of Cindy & Jason”. The bathrooms were even accessorized with useful products for the ladies and men. Although I love how fresh and vibrant the room turned out my favorite part was later in the evening when the sun went down, the fuchsia backdrop uplighting appeared at its brightest, the light in the middle of the floral chandelier was dimmed and the crystal candleholders sparkled throughout the room.
I loved designing this wedding. I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to help pull together Cindy’s vision and look forward to all the brilliant weddings we have to come this year.
