the most popular wedding date of the decade...maybe even the century. Here are scenes from my 7-7-07 wedding. I didn't get shots of the bride's bouquet or the altar flowers, but these are from the reception at Carolina Country Club. I have a collection of silver plated containers, which have proven popular with my brides over the years. Everytime I deliver them, I wonder if they will all return, but I have been lucky and only one or two have disappeared.
You can't tell it from this angle, but there were three teapots on this table. I'm sure it was a good conversation-starter, as usual (not for the flowers, mind you, but the whimsy of the teapots).
The main buffet centerpiece is in a tall silver urn, and it holds larkspur, bells of Ireland, hydrangea, allium, roses, iris, snapdragons, freesias, lilies, springerii, salal, ivy and moss.
This is my favorite silver piece. It is a Victorian container, which once held a glass insert. Click to enlarge and see the whimsical details on the base of it. You can't see it, but the handle, which is down, has a very detailed stag's head at its center.
Details from the buffet flowers. The purple fluff ball - allium - is always a big hit. The women of the altar guild at the church all flocked around the altar arrangements to see the allium. Would you believe it is in the onion family?
The acuba came from my yard.
