Beautiful Downtown Church Wedding

Congratulations Hannah!  I loved working with this bride, she had a beautiful style, and I can't wait to see her professional photos from her photographer!  Simple, English garden, natural style using cream and eggplant purple, and accented by dusty miller, vintage lace, and burlap.  Ceremony was downtown San Luis at the First Presbyterian Church, which is a gorgeous stone church in the heart of San Luis.

The bride carried a rich and vintage feeling bouquet of eggplant calla lilies, purple and ivory lizianthus, accented by dusty miller and baby's breath.  The stems were wrapped with burlap, pinned with pearl pins, and tied with ivory lace to match her dress.  Loved it!  The bridesmaids had simple clutch bouquets of white garden roses and baby's breath, also wrapped with burlap and a simple knot of thinner lace to coordinate with the bride.  They looked amazing against their purple chiffon dresses!

Centerpieces were a simple 'just picked' style, using Avalanche garden roses, lizianthus, seeded eucalyptus, and hints of baby's breath.  The wooden riser was perfect to anchor the stone-filled vase in the center of the table.  I am all for any type of anchor for your centerpieces, be it fabric, wood, stone, tile, or petals.  Having this really draws in the eye of your guest and adds interest to any floral arrangement.  Great job Hannah!
