Early fall, a bit hot and hazy but such a beautiful wedding day at the Admirals House in Seattle.  East coast vibes with a garden touch meant blue hydrangeas in basket of course and garden inspired table settings. Working with the dynamic mother and daughter duo we chose a simple wood arbor, natural linen tablecloths, rustic terra cotta compotes, and beeswax candles to create this colorful but soft wedding flower plan.

If you think east coast you think blue hydrangeas for sure. The Bride and her family purchased these beautiful baskets for Pottery Barn and we filled the with masses of hydrangea in blue. A large peegee hydrangea plant was so fun to use. I am sure it is planted in the garden

It is so nice to have a place where guests can sit and visit in comfy chairs. We added just a small flower arrangement and a few beeswax candles, plenty of room for wine glasses

wedding centerpiece made with fall flowers, terra cotta compote, peach and blue flowers

Centerpieces made in terra cotta compotes were so good on the natural linens. We added beeswax votives as well. The flowers include snowberry, clematis, garden roses, cosmos, foxglove, lisianthus, my favorite rubus foliage and other autumn flowers

Lots of neutrals, linens, table number, napkin, dishes, compote then we add the color. Color but also subtle and peaceful

Round tables need just not centerpiece but long tables need a bit more. It was fun to create this long head table with a mix of elements. Oval Terra cotta containers, small arrangements in between and bees wax pillars and votives is what we used on this special table.

Repurposing  ceremony flowers at the reception, there are always a million places they could go. We placed two of the hydrangea arrangements in front of the bar and the others near the dessert table.
