These were Mel Day's weddings (Dogwood Tree Floral), and unless otherwise noted, I did all the arrangements and kissing balls.
The first wedding was held at Crenshaw Hall, which I have told you about before.
There were five tables like this, five that had 3 arrangements each and five that had one centerpiece in white ceramic containers.
The taller centerpiece is viburnum, and the two lower ones are green roses and hydrangea.
The centerpieces had: bells of Ireland, snapdragons, hydrangea, viburnum, dendrobium orchids, tulips, anemones, roses and calla lilies.
Mel did this; one of a pair. For the ceremony, they were placed on top of the lattice background.
Here is the larger kissing ball; hanging in the center of the ceremony backdrop.

The "candy bar", put together by the wedding cake baker, Cinda, of Cinda's Creative Cakes.

The ceremony aisle, with six smaller kissing balls hanging on shepherd's hooks and rose petals lining the walkway.
The second wedding was at Duke Chapel in Durham, and the reception was held in The Cotton Room, a newish facility which used to be a loft type warehouse. It has been remodeled and is a lovely place for a wedding or party!
Mel did all the flowers for this one; I just placed them on the tables.
The tables had both tall and low centerpieces; the tall ones in shades of pink and hot pink with cream. They looked good enough to eat! The raspberry colored hydrangea was exquisite!!
The low centerpieces were square vases of three colors of tulips. What says spring more than tulips??? They were so cheerful!
