This winter has been so long and grey. We all need a dose of color to remind us that we will have spring and summer again. The wedding of Becky and Andy this past October is a wonderful example of the colors we have been missing!
Becky and Andy’s inspiration was a rainbow colored wedding. Everything in the wedding followed this theme, from the bridesmaid’s bouquets and groomsmen’s boutonnieres to the vased single flowers on top of the fireplace and the table runners at their reception.
Each of Becky’s bridesmaids wore a black dress of their choosing and carried a hand tied bouquet with flowers of a single color, red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple. Each bouquet was slightly different from the next due to the availability of flowers for each color. The red, orange and yellow bouquets were carnations, roses, gerbera daisies, and gladiola blooms. The green bouquet was made with hydrangea, fuji mums, carnations, hypericum berries and gladiola blooms. The blue bouquet included hydrangea, iris, delphinium and dyed gladiola blooms whereas the purple bouquet consisted of hydrangea, stock, carnations and glad blooms. Becky carried a bouquet of hot pink roses with rhinestones added to each rose blossom.
Their ceremony took place in the Somerset Room at Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee. The room faces a wonderful fireplace where we placed clear vases with a single flower of each color alternating with a votive candle. At either side of the aisle a simple white pew bow was adorned with gladiola blooms of each color, one color per set of bows.
Bank of Memories & Flowers would like to wish Becky and Andy a future together that is as colorful as their wedding day!
