Beautiful Vibrant Flowers For A Barn Wedding
Alison Welch (Bride) Grant, MN
We got married on July 25, 2015 at the Dellwood Barn and knew that having our wedding ceremony outdoors and the reception inside a historic barn, we would need a lot of flowers to add some (beautiful!) color. We purchased red anemones, ranunculus, and green hypericum berries from FiftyFlowers; in addition, the bride's mother and cousin planted several pots of plants for the aisle AND a wedding flowerbed so that we had some supplemental stems, including carnations, dahlias, roses, mums, and gerbera daisies. On the day before the wedding we had a crew - cousins, sisters, nieces, friends, grandmothers, and even some of the bride's nephews - filling vases, cutting flowers, and arranging them; meanwhile,
Thomas--the bride's cousin--made all of the boutonnieres, bridesmaid bouquets, and bridal bouquet. The end result was absolutely amazing! We used carnations to create strands of flowers for the arch for the ceremony, and then vases and vases of flowers lining the tables throughout all of the barn. It was the most perfect day and the flowers made it look absolutely spectacular!
