Outdoor Fall Wedding

Vicki Grace (Cousin of Bride) Huntley, IL
I had the honor of creating my cousin's wedding flowers. I, of course, suggested we use FiftyFlowers. This is the 13th wedding I have worked on in the past 17 years and for almost all of those weddings, I have used FiftyFlowers. The quality and selection of flowers are outstanding and FiftyFlowers customer service is the best I have ever experienced. My cousin Sarah and her groom Mike are outdoorsy people and they had a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony. I only wish I had more pictures of the background. Sarah asked me to create flowers that would tie in with the bridesmaids wine colored gowns. I contacted one of FiftyFlowers professional consultants to discuss which of the mini callas would work ... best. I sent her a pic of the bridesmaids' gowns and she suggested deep purple wine mini callas or purpleberry mini callas. The purpleberry mini callas were exquisite. I included wired pearl pics in the brides' bouquet to set off that gorgeous color. Sarah's wedding colors were wine and nude. For the nude, I had a choice of Sahara Roses or Quick Sand Roses. I chose the Quick Sand roses because they have a slight pinkish hue which would complement the purpleberry callas very well. The burgundy carnations were used in mason jars along with the seeded eucalyptus and some baby breath. Sorry, I don't have any pics of those. The groom's boutonniere (also no pic) was a single mini calla with seeded eucalyptus and the groomsmen had Quick Sand Rose Bouts with seeded eucalyptus. As you can see in the pictures the flowers turned out great. Thank you FiftyFlowers for another successful wedding. Show more

Deep Purple Wine Bulk Mini Calla Lilies ( 100 Tall Calla Lilies )

The deep purple wine mini callas were not available by the date of the wedding. FiftyFlowers advised Purpleberry Mini Callas and they were stunning.

The Quicksand roses are so beautiful. We received them on Wednesday for a Saturday wedding and they opened more quickly than I preferred, but they looked beautiful in the bouquets.

The seeded eucalyptus is a fall favorite for it's beautiful sage green leaves and textured seeds.

These rich, dark burgundy carnations were used in pint sized mason jars as aisle decorations for the outdoor ceremony. They were lovely for a fall wedding.
