Traditional meets Artsy Chic = Gorgeous pastels at the Curtis House in Ashfield

Meghan wanted all blushes, whites and creams…but she’s also an art designer, has one or two tattoos, and her hair makes me think of a unicorn (not to mention their wedding hashtag was #megbreaksben – courtesy of her fun and personal instagram feed!), so I knew that while a traditional color scheme was in order to go with her beyond-gorgeous lace dress, I could add a creative touch here and there to add a little extra style to these romantic flowers, starting with the bride’s bouquet.

Location: Gloriosa & Co. at The Curtis House, Ashfield, October.
Photography: most by Tim Mackay Design (unless otherwise noted.)

My own variety of white dahlias: l’Ancresse, Beaucon White, Colwood Hope, and the every cheerful pinky-blush Valley Porcupine, mixed with pink astilbe, scabiosa stellata, pale yellow stock, and a variety of eucalyptus. Photo by me.
The wedding party’s colors were blues and greens, which are my absolute favorite, and I LOVE how the pale flowers popped against these seaglass tinted dresses and not-quite-navy blue suits.
They were married outside with the gate as a backdrop, so I created a flower-filled greenery garland to set the scene.
The aisles were lined with sweet little jars of dahlias, heirloom chrysanthemums and snaps.
Cute bouts for a handsome groom and his groomsman. Every boutonniere I made was a little bit different. I love doing that!
The wedding – the reception, the location, the people – all were gorgeous! But now to the best part: a happy marriage!
