twilight wedding flowers




This past weekend I may or may not have gone out for girls night to see breaking dawn. Ok, I'll fess up... I did. I am no twihard, but I did read the books 3 years ago and enjoy seeing the movies with my friends who first got me to read the books. So we giggled like little girls, sat packed in a full theater and of course discussed the movie afterward in comparison to the book. Bella and Edward marry in this movie. A Twilight wedding? You better believe it was huge and beautiful. It was held almost as much a secret as the royal wedding. The whole feel was very organic, woodland and romantic with the canopy of white wisteria cascading from the trees (40- 50 feet in length!) and moss covered stumps flowing with white flowers. The floral designer in charge was Tammy Polatsek.

So I put together a collage of the flowers used in the wedding:

.

Bella's bouquet:
I still can not even find a photo of Bella's bouquet so from what I remember it had all mostly white ranunculas, stock, freeshia and possibly roses and sweet peas mixed in.

Boutonnieres:
I believe they were small freesia florets. It was hard to tell though without getting up close.

The cake:
5 tier, sweet peas, cream roses and green viburnum.

Centerpieces:
Green viburnum, white delphinium, stock, white ranunculus and sweet peas with moss and ferns and manzanita branch-like candelabras.


so if you want to go-ahead and comment that I am a huge dork and you've lost all respect for me... or that you vomited in your mouth upon seeing the title of this post... or confess you saw the movie too ;)

  4. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I've seen enough of this scene to know I'm completely smitten buy all those gorgeous flowers hanging like that. I've always wanted a simple wedding, but now... And I love that collection of flowers you created -- how gorgeous they'd all look together!
