Summer Country Club Wedding

Summer Wedding Anna Lee Media Bride and Blossom

Watching my dear friend Marissa walk down the aisle as a stunning bride was one of the best moments of my summer. Creating wedding flowers for this quintessential, summer, country-club wedding was a true pleasure. I wanted to make sure this bride had the gorgeous flowers – and perfect wedding day – that she deserved.

One of my favorite details from this wedding was a special touch added to the grouped floral arrangement we created for the card table. We suspended light pink, cymbidium orchids, on clear wire, from an arrangement of cream hydrangea and Vendela roses, blush Esther roses, white phalaenopsis orchid blooms and cascading, white, Hawaiian dendrobium orchids. Incorporating hanging florals, into tall card-table floral arrangements and centerpieces evokes a sense of magic and grandeur. We love getting creative in this way.

Bouquet Recipe: Pretty Peach & Purple Petals


Rich, vibrant hues and unexpected contrast made this bridesmaids’ bouquet stand out.

Wedding-flower color schemes are always carefully considered by brides and wedding florists. In fact, color is often the first thing our brides mention in our conversation about types of wedding flowers. To achieve the layered, painterly look of this bouquet, it was essential to select exactly the perfect shades of peach and purple.

Cool-toned purple hydrangea formed a lush base. Pale-peach garden roses brought softness to the color palette, while ranunculus, in a brighter, sunset shade of peach, infused the bouquet with warmth. Deep-purple dahlias added richness. We finished the bouquet with accents of silver-green dusty miller leaves.
