Stratton Mountain Resort

Last Saturday was picture perfect for Juliann and Kevin's wedding at Stratton Resort. Juliann and I never met each other in person, but did all the planning through many emails. Their colors were blue, green and white and flowers included primarily hydrangea, peonies, ranunculus and garden roses. She was going for the "fluffy" look. Fluffy is definitely in this season!
Her bouquet consisted of all white ranunculus, peonies and hydrangea.
The groom's boutonniere was made with two peony buds. All the groomsman wore hydrangea boutonnieres to match the attendant bouquets.

Attendants wore gorgeous royal blue dresses and carried bouquets made entirely of white and green hydrangea wrapped with green ribbon.
The ceremony took place next to one of the small ponds on the Commons at Stratton. The couple rented the birch arch from me for the ceremony. Small buckets filled with blue hydrangea and small garden roses lined the aisle. The original plan was to hang all of the buckets from shepherd hooks, but as you can see, the way the site was set up, we had to make some last minute adjustments.
The arch was decorated with hydrangea, peonies and roses with large hydrangea and rose arrangements in sap buckets set on each side.
Closer view.
Arrangement at top of the arch.
The reception area at Stratton has a huge fireplace with an equally huge mantle just begging for someone to decorate it. We put white hydrangea and greenery among the votive candles on the mantle. The two large ceremony arrangements were brought to the reception and placed on each side of the hearth. The sweetheart table was placed right in front of this stunning background complete with candles burning in the fireplace.
The centerpieces used the same hydrangea, roses and ranunculus.
Blue/green hydrangea was used on this oh so delicious looking, gorgeous towering cake.
This wedding was one of my favorites so far this year. Love the colors, style and use of all the flowers and working with Juliann. Congratulations Juliann and Kevin!!

July 4th Weekend Wedding

Blue dresses, blue and white flowers, red and white gingham tablecloths complete with a lobtser bake! That was last weekend's wedding which took place at Hawk Inn and Mountain Resort in Plymouth, VT.
The bride carried a bouquet of blue hydrangea with white calla lilies. Her 6 attendants each carried a single large calla lily stem and wore various shades of blues dresses.
The couple used arch available at the Hawk Inn and asked for just 2 large blue and white hydrangea arrangements in sap buckets. Their ceremony took place next to the bridge crossing the Black River.
A closer view of the hydrangea arrangements set in place.
Another view of the bride's blue and white bouquet.
I've noticed that every couple does something a little different than the last. I love different! At this ceremony set up, I found a bell hung at the top of the arch, presumably to be used somehow during the ceremony.
Unfortunately the reception tables were not set up when I delivered the flowers so I didn't get a chance to photograph them. Hopefully I will get some photos to share!
Congratulations Jenn and Jon! All the best.
