Spring has sprung all around us here in Sacramento. The weather is amazing, warm and breezy and truly perfect. But as soon as I put the disc I received from The Memory Journalists into MacAttack (yes, my computer has a name) my thoughts and heart were back at Christmas time. The wedding reception of Stacey and Mark took place on December 27th at the The Hyatt in downtown Sacramento. It was a warm and romantic affair filled with candlelight and laughter and of course, amazing flowers.
I loved Stacey’s hair band. It was a little gold bow- so perfect for her and the season.
We added a smidgen of red berries and gold branches to the bridesmaids’ bouquets just to give them a little “pop”.
Stacey’s bouquet consisted of three varieties of roses, Vendela, Sahara and Blizzard and was accented with wisps of cedar and eucalyptus berries. I also added a few buds of Snowflake chrysanthemum.
I loved the theme of the reception, The 12 days of Christmas. Instead of traditional table numbers they placed decorative plates, each depicting one of the 12 days, on the guest tables. The centerpieces consisted of hydrangea, football chrysanthemum, dusty miller, roses, carnations, stock, eucalyptus, sugar pine and just a touch of gold branches and red hypericum berries.
The head table was a round table mixed in with the other round guest tables. We placed a low floating dish in the center of the table filled with candles, pearls, red gems and floating flowers. The empty vases placed around the centerpiece were waiting to hold the bridal party’s bouquets after they made their entrance.
