Some images from a wedding we did in McKinney, Texas on September 12, 2009. Held at the historic Heard-Craig Hall, it was a gorgeous evening affair, despite the raging thunderstorm outside! The bride chose chocolate, teal & diamond white as her colors, and what a stunning combination it was! She wore a diamond white strapless dress accented by a mocha beaded sash. Her bridesmaids wore chocolate dresses, and her maid of honor a gorgeous teal dress to match the vests that the groomsmen wore.
The Bridal Cake & Groom's Cake were made by the talented Annie Hall of Annie's Culinary Creations in Murphy, Texas. One of the most talented bakers I have had the privilege to work with, not only are her cakes works of art, they taste as good as they look!
The bridal cake was a 3-tier Italian Cream cake with buttercream icing. The groom's cake was a classic Chocolate, except the shape took it from a yummy cake, to a spectacular LOOKING cake as well!! Add in all those hand-dipped tuxedo strawberries, and it becoming a simply delicious cake cutting.
The bride ordered gorgeous arrangements for her centerpieces, consisting of Antique Green Hydrangeas nestled at the mouth of large 20" cylinder vases with 6" tall Curly Willow branches sprouting from the center. We also hung crystals to reflect the candlelight from below.
These are quickly becoming my "signature" centerpiece....they really are gorgeous, and do make a nice statement, especially if your reception is held in a location with tall, tall ceilings. We help keep the costs reasonable by renting the vases & crystals at prices lower than any other vendor (that we know of!!). Depending on the size of willow & amount of hydrangeas (or if you want additional flowers nestled in the hydrangeas), these range anywhere from $45-$150 per table.
For the bridal bouquet I used dark purple calla lilies nestled among the gorgeous hydrangeas, and accented with Polar Star white roses. The handle was wrapped french-style with teal & chocolate satin ribbons. The groom wore a single dark purple calla lily wrapped in teal ribbon.
The bridesmaids carried a combination of Polar Star Roses & assorted colors of hydrangeas wrapped in chocolate & teal satin ribbons.
