She had some criteria - BIG centerpieces, tall glass containers with green fruit in them & color - lots of color! My dream! So we set half the room with tall glass cylinders & filled them with bright green apples that had a beautiful blush across them. (I'm still eating them!) You can sort of see them in the back of this picture below... The rest of the tables were set with lush full arrangements in compotes filled with the same apples and topped with open red and orange roses, pink Vanda orchids and red Mokara orchids.
They had a crew that partied - so she booked a school bus - and we all thought that was hilarious! I convinced her to toss the bouquet from the bus as they left the party. I ran across her email a little while ago where she said...
"Just so you know people continue to compliment the flowers from the wedding, the centerpieces and bouquets were gorgeous, really stunning! I absolutely loved them. Also, the last picture of us on the bus is really great - you were soooo right!"
I have no idea who this little cutie is but it I thought it was so funny! It is a testament to Simon of Simon Jon Photography that he doesn't miss a thing at the reception! I ran into the father-of-the-bride the other day & he was talking about the wedding - he was gushing about how Simon was so unobtrusive & amazed that he got so many awesome shots.
Oh yeah - here's a shout out to Megan - she totally rocked the giant hair flower! For you ladies out there in search of hair adornment - she said she got it from a company called "ban.do" check them out ! You can look this good too!
