I had the pleasure of working with the Keogh's for their May 01, 2009 wedding at Paradise Cove. The mother and daughter work at Disney and had already been to the design team at Disney. After several meetings with me and comparing our creative proposal with Disney's I am pleased to tell you as evident below we were chosen to provide the floral. We put our spin on what their vision was to create the beautiful floral and decor as seen below. Soon I will replace these images with professional ones provided by Garrett Nudd who is an absolutely amazing photographer. As I hoped and recommended, the family hired Blush by Brandee Gaar. It is always great to work with Stephanie, she is so sweet.
The first centerpiece was also a 12" square x 4" tall vase is lined with turquoise and cobalt blue crushed glass. The base of this design was blue thistle surrounding hollow tubes that would have fresh cut phalaenopsis orchids cascading over. Orange gerbera daisies surrounded the tubes. Thanks to our designer Val for making sure every centerpiece was mechanically sound and each flower placed just so.
The second was a 12" square x 4" tall vase is lined with turquoise and cobalt blue crushed glass. Layers of floral included hydrangea and thistle are the spring board for orange gerbera daisies.
The bride carried a bouquet of orange dahlias, blue thistle, cobalt hydrangea and Asclepia Tuberosa.. The leaves where to be hosta, but the hydrangea leaves had such great texture and deep lines it was a shame not to use them.
The female attendants carried a bouquet of light blue hydrangea, orange mokara orchids, blue thistle, Asclepia Tuberosa Orange Silk Weed and coxcomb.
The flower girl carried a moss covered ball with blue thistle and Volkenfrieden Delphinium. The male attendants wore a boutonniere with blue thistle and orange coxcomb.
Framing the aisle where blue thistle pomander balls hung from black shepherds hooks. These would later be placed atop round and square vases for the food stations.
An artistic designed escort card table arrangement pulling all the elements together including color to create a one of a kind floral design.
