Orange And Blue Flowers At Grand Isle Lake House

I usually post one wedding per week during my busy season, but I’ve got a twofer for ya this week.  On Tuesday I shared a blue and white wedding and today I’ve got some orange and blue blooms to brighten your Thursday.  We had two blue weddings in two weeks and the next two weeks also include some blue flowers…it’s kinda my “blue period” this year.

Jacquelyn and Jeremy’s “orange & blueberry” colored wedding took place over Labor Day weekend at Grand Isle Lake House.  You may have seen me bragging about my super talented couple’s DIY save-the-dates which were made by the groom.  Their overall style was a vintage, ’40’s-esque, travel theme with orange and blue tones represented throughout the day.

First, I’ve got a couple shots of the bridal bouquet.  The bride carried an orange and white bouquet with a few blue accent tones including orange callas, white and orange dahlias, ranunculus, freesia, crocosmia, thistle and delphinium.

I love an orange and white flower combo and the touches of blue really complement them nicely.

 Her four attendants carried slightly smaller bouquets of dahlias, callas, freesia, ranunculus and spray roses with crocosmia and thistle accents.

The boutonnieres were made of orange callas with a touch of myrtle and crocosmia buds.

All packed up and ready for delivery!

The ceremony took place under the arbor with the lake in the background.  Gerberas, dahlias, snapdragons, spray roses, delphinium, thistle and bupleurum framed the space.

I love their super cute placecards.  Their ’40’s inspired details were fantastic.

I added a few floral details to the display.

The wedding programs were also waaay cool and displayed with vintage handkerchiefs.

In step with the vintage theme the centerpieces were designed in blue mason jars borrowed from a friend.  Hey, that’s something borrowed AND blue!

The couple also made the table numbers.

Don’t you just adore this cupcake display by BakeAria?!

Congratulations to Jacquelyn and Jeremy on a beautifully crafted destination wedding!  I’m sure you and your guests danced the night away to Ella Fitzgerald, relaxed on the porch and sipped mint juleps (or something equally old-timey).  I absolutely love your handcrafted, vintage style!  (Below is their save-the-date postcard designed by the groom…in case you missed it!)

    Beautiful, beautiful work as always Alison! Jacquelyn and Jeremy’s vintage touches fit in perfectly with the history of the Lake House. The flowers tied everything together and the colors really popped. Gorgeous!!
