For a beach themed boutonniere, seashells adorned the arrangement of ming fern, hypericum berries, white lisianthus, and thistle.
For the bride's bouquet, white lisianthus, green hypericum berries, agapanthus, and thistle was used to create this beautiful seaside arrangement. 
For the centerpieces, hydrangea, agapanthus, green hypericum berries, thistle, white lisianthus, dusty miller, and ming fern was used.  Seashells were leaned against the vases while the table numbers were created with photo frames. 

For this centerpiece, craspedia was added for a fun color pop. Vintage blue glass bottles were used around the centerpiece to hold smaller arrangements of flowers.

An example of a smaller flower arrangements included white lisianthus with craspedia.  Seashells can also be adorned to this arrangement for a beach theme.

For a smaller arrangement on outdoor tables, seashells with wax flower, white lisianthus, and ming fern inside were placed on crystal plates with crystal candle holders.

Spring Wedding

This beautiful spring wedding was held in Mystic and had a stunning backdrop of the Mystic River.  All photos are courtesy of Carrie Roseman.
A ranunculus flower surrounded by monkey tail fern and bells of Ireland was used for the boutonniere. The monkey tail fern created a heart behind the flower.
The bride's stunning bouquet was made from tuber roses, tulips, ranunculus, geranium leaf, jasmine, pink roses, with accent of monkey tail fern tied together with a ribbon.

For a taller centerpiece look, this flower arrangement was placed into a large glass vase that added height.  White and green hydrangeas, roses, wax flower, variegated box wood, godetia flower, and Esperance roses were used with ivy hanging down and flowering quints as an accent sticking out at the top.  
A vintage hand painted plate on a wooden easel was used as the table numbers.

For a shorter centerpiece similar flowers such as godetia, Esperance roses, mini green hydrangeas, wax flowers, and variegated box wood was used to create this arrangement.  The colors go well with the coral bloom linen from Rentals Unlimited.

Jonathan Edwards Vineyard Wedding

This beautiful May wedding had a gorgeous backdrop of the Jonathan Edwards Vineyard.
For the groom's boutonniere a freesia flower with grape vine around the back was used.  It creates a more manly look while still using the beautiful flower.  

The bride's beautiful bouquet was made from white peony flowers, purple tulips, lilacs, wax flowers, spray roses, dusty miller, and accents of maiden hair fern. The purple flowers went very nicely with her green sequin dress. 

 For the rustic farm theme this wooden "Wedding" sign is a good accent.

When having a vineyard wedding, there will most likely be barrels such as this one.  Here it is decorated with a floral arrangement that includes roses, hydrangeas, pittosporum, white larkspur, lilacs, and an accent of curly willow.  This arrangement was placed with a wrought iron stage coach lantern which goes along with the farm theme.  The bride brought in the hitching post next to the barrel that was decorated with ivy and lilac.  

A good idea for a centerpiece flower holder for this farm theme was the use of brown paper bags.  It is different and unique.  The flowers arranged in the paper bag were lilacs, white and purple tulips, hydrangeas, and roses.  The cornucopia was also a good decoration for holding chips.

This is an idea for making well-wishes.  Guests fill out the tags and place them in the bowl.  Later the bride used them to hang on her Christmas tree.  This went along with the rustic farm theme.
For the table set-up, burlap was used for the runner with flower arrangements going down the long tables.  The flower arrangements included hydrangeas, white roses, white veronica, white delphinium, tulips, trachelium, and curly willow. The green and white flower colors with the burlap really added to the rustic theme.
For table seating cards, burlap bags with wine charms inside were used.  It was creative and included a little gift for the guests.

White and green hydrangeas, white roses, lizianthis, wax flowers, thistle, and veronica were placed in an arrangement in a vintage antique shelf.  Wrought iron stage coach lanterns were placed on the tables with the flowers to keep the rustic theme and add a different look.  Mercury glass votives were used for the candles.

A ladder was a creative way to show pictures of the family and to hold flower arrangements of roses in vintage Victorian maple syrup holders.

The different wines that were offered were written on a chalkboard which is a creative way to be unique when presenting the wine or drink list.

Table numbers were placed in crystal doorknobs that had a clip placed at the top.

Ocean Commotion

Ocean Commotion is a perfect example of how you can decorate in a tent setting and use the most from the space that is available.

The centerpieces were beautifully created using black baccara roses, freedom roses, black magic roses and a touch of lemon leaf and silver tree fern.  This beautiful arrangement was accented with black feathers and little rhinestones within the roses.  The vase has a satin ribbon with vintage rhinestone clasp to tie together the piece and give it an elegant look.

If the roses are too much of a dramatic look then this centerpiece could be of interest.  The cymbidium orchids are tied with silver cord to beautiful silver manzanita branches and is accented with vintage crystal chandelier crystals.

If looking for a centerpiece that really stands out from the rest then the roses can also be adorned into this beautiful glass candelabra. 
The red and black centerpiece colors accent the silver chairs and tablecloth well. The feathers add a pop of elegance and darker shade in contrast to the red roses.

Rose petals scattered on the table help to bring down the color to the silver tablecloth.

Crystal chandeliers were hung from the tent which was a beautiful touch.  This allowed to create an elegant atmosphere and to enhance the tent.
