I truly consider myself lucky to have a job that elicits compliments on my work and thank you’s from my clients, but the biggest compliment by far is when I am hired to work on more than one wedding in a family. I designed the flowers for the sister of the bride’s wedding in 2009 and when their mom contacted me about Stacey and Justin’s wedding at Spruce Peak in Stowe I was both flattered and excited to have the opportunity to work with the family again.
The colors for the wedding were a clean, crisp palette of whites, greens, yellows and blues. The bride carried white lisianthus, roses, sweet peas, freesia, mini green hydrangea and fresh oregano tied with a band of green silk dupioni ribbon.
The bridesmaids wore blue dresses and carried bouquets with yellow accent tones of ranunculus and freesia.
I’m kinda loving these bouquets paired with the antique tin ceiling background.
The weather was absolutely perfect for their July wedding on the natural stone patio at Spruce Peak.
Centerpieces in birch containers were filled with white and green hydrangea, poppy pods, yellow snapdragons, spray roses, cottage yarrow, bupleurum, curly willow and blue delphinium for a fresh, summery look.
Perrin Williams of Vermont Cake Studio created a lovely display for dessert.
Wine corks greeted guests with their table number.
For their rehearsal dinner at Stowe Mountain Lodge I designed centerpieces of yellow irises, fresh mint, roses, sweet peas and green hydrangea to complement the style of the next day’s designs without giving away the entire look of the wedding.
The majority of the wedding planning was handled by the mother of the bride since the couple lives in Colorado and due to the timing of the day I never got the chance to meet the bride or the groom (crazy, I know!), but I can say that it was a genuine pleasure to have the opportunity to be a part of both daughters’ weddings! Congrats to Stacey and Justin who had one of the most beautiful days of the summer for their outdoor ceremony. (And congratulations to MOB, Carole, for planning two destination weddings in VT over the past few years!) I look forward to seeing your smiling faces in pics from Kathleen Landwehrle!
