Zinnias, beautiful zinnias!

This colorful wedding took place last Saturday at Hawk Inn and Mountain Resort in Plymouth, Vermont. All of the arrangements and bouquets included mixed colored zinnias with the focus being on yellow. The birch arbor was the perfect backdrop for this ceremony held in a field with a view of  the mountains in the background. Large side arrangements were made in old sap buckets.

Bright yellow rose petals were scattered in front of the arbor.

The bridal bouquet was made with all different colored zinnias, including some white with white caspia.
All seven attendants wore bright yellow dresses and carried bouquets of brightly colored zinnia and greenery wrapped with yellow gingham ribbon.
I made a wreath of bright yellow daisies for the couples dog who was included in the ceremony. So cute, can't wait to see photos! 
Simple centerpieces of mixed wildflowers, including some zinnias of course, were made in quart size mason jars with yellow gingham ribbon wrapped necks.
Unbeknownst to me, the couple named all reception tables after Michael Jackson songs!
I reminisced while setting the flowers in place:)
Congratulations Tanya & Tim!

  1. Love your bower - if you don't mind, what are the dimensions? (looks like about 6' x 8')
    Thanks!
