But first - I had to show you this "Shadow Shot"!! I don't participate in that meme, but I see it regularly on Bobbie's blog. I was fascinated by the strong shadow produced on that table top!! Since Bobbie has been showing shadows, I have noticed them more and more. Thanks, Bobbie! (all photos from Mel Day's weddings this past weekend.)
One of the tall centerpieces for a wedding at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. Rhonda (another of Mel's designers) made these. The eucalyptus was donated by the bride's family for use in the wedding. I love the smell of it, but poor Rhonda is allergic to it.
The same wedding had some shorter centerpieces as well. That's a growing trend: some tall and some short. It makes the room more interesting, I think, and it usually cuts the cost.
I had to show you this flower. In the lobby of the country club, there is a round table with cut flowers. This week, they had purple allium - the BIG ones! They are 5-6" in diameter. It's a bit blurry, but I had to show you anyway. We don't get to use these often, and I love them.
The main ballroom at Prestonwood Country Club; a beautiful venue.
The altar arrangement I made; in place at the church. They had very specific size requirements there: 30" wide and no more than 18" tall.
A centerpiece at Bay 7, in Durham, NC. A vase of corkscrew willow with purple vanda orchid sprays attached. Some of the other tables had 3 vases (all different heights), each with submerged orchids or purple calla lilies.
Another reception centerpiece; this one at The Marriott at Crabtree Valley, Raleigh, NC. They also had some shorter arrangements, seen below this one.
I hope you enjoyed the wedding photos. Since I post them so often, please don't feel as though you have to comment on them ( but we love it when you do!)
