Rich colors and branches at the Oxford Hotel
Late September is a distinct season in Colorado... temperatures fluctuate and fall colors begin to show in the trees but summer still lingers. We feel Michelle's flower choices for her 9.19 wedding at St. Phillip Lutheran and at the Oxford hotel reflected this time perfectly.
Michelle opted for a bright combination of fall tones including oranges, reds, greens and browns with splashes of gold. We included flame and eggplant mini calla lilies, red and hypnose (latte) roses, orange ranunculus, spray roses and freesia, vibrant green and antique green hydrangea and hypericum berries, gold cymbidium orchids, wheat sprigs, chocolate cosmos and green hanging amaranthus. We added dark brown manzanita branches to her alter pieces and to half of her centerpieces... also complimenting her centerpieces with flower "nests" in the branches. Her bridal bouquet (top right) included ruffly ivory garden roses to compliment her dress while her bridesmaids' bouquets contained more brown (hypnose roses and chocolate cosmos) to compliment their chocolate dresses.
We look forward to seeing images of the day from one of our favorite photographers, Susan Pacek. Susan always captures the details and beauty of the day far better than we could! Congratulations Michelle!
