Lime and Orange

I had two weddings this past weekend after resting up over the 4th!
I did some fun arrangements for one wedding held at a private residence in Brownsville, VT with a gorgeous view of Mount Ascutney. The bride wanted primarily green and orange flowers with just a punch of fuchsia. Her bouquet, shown below, consisted of orange dahlias, two different varieties of orange spray roses, white lisianthus, fuchsia garden roses, green hypericum berries and clematis leaves.
Below is another photo of the bridal bouquet shown with the groom's boutonniere. Orange spray roses and white lisianthus buds were wrapped with raffia.
The tent was decorated with dozens of orange, green and white chinese lanterns!
Centerpieces were made in three different shape and size glass vases. The bride wanted to incorporate oranges and limes, so some vases were completely lined with citrus slices with others having ti leaves wrapped around the inside of the vase with a few citrus slices added for color.
My cooler smelled absolutely wonderful!!
Candle trios were wrapped with green handmade paper with a swirl pattern. I chose this particular paper because it reminded me of the orange and lime slices. 
All the centerpieces waiting to be placed on the tables.
The flowers included green spider mums, orange long stemmed and orange spray roses, fresh almond pods, green "kermit" poms, orange dahlias, green hypericum berries along with fresh mint and oregano.
Congratulations Shana and Sean!!
