wedding flashback: flowers

Today I wanted to share some pictures of the flowers from our wedding.  Our vendor was Grass Roots and I cannot recommend them enough.  My husband and I know very little about flowers and had little ideas on what we wanted for wedding flowers other than that we liked hydrangeas and wanted flowers in blues, greens, and whites.  With little direction, the talented ladies at Grass Roots made beautiful arrangements that were perfect for our wedding.

One of best things they did was provide us with a proposal that included a low, middle, and high price for each item with different size or floral combinations so that we could combine or modify our choices to fit within our budget.  They also recommended that we go to the LA flower district to get the glass containers for the tables.  Although they had these containers for us to rent, they gave us a tip that buying these containers ourselves would be cheaper than renting them.  I appreciated them looking out for us and our budget!

Here are the main ceremony flowers that were at the front and center of our ceremony.  We later moved these into the reception area at both sides of the fireplace in the dining room.

My favorite flowers were the bride and bridesmaid bouquets.  They were beautiful and matched the dresses perfectly.

My mother tied my grandparent's wedding rings to my bouquet as my "something borrowed."  It was a lovely personal touch and I was happy to have a piece of them there in my wedding.

The groom and groomsmen boutonierres were made of green and blue hydrangeas.

The tables arrangements were a mix of roses and hydrangeas.

Finally, the cake!  For the cake, we chose simple roses as decoration for the top.  The cake was made by the Four Seasons hotel baker with a simple fondant icing, ribbon to match our wedding invitations and bridesmaid dresses, and swiss dots in icing to match my dress.
