Maya and Jon's wedding

Maya and Jon got married on 9/22.  This wedding was one of the most creative I have had the pleasure to working on.  I have been collecting vintage silver plate and sterling pieces for years but have had little use for them.  Maya and her mother came over and selected many pieces from the collection as well as other metal containers for the reception flowers. We collected 14 different pairs of candelabras as well.  Maya chose farm tables with no linens in different sizes.  On the small square tables we put a pair of candleholders and 2 bunches of herbs - lavender, rosemary and sage tied with a grey ribbon.  On the longer tables I made 2 arrangements in different silver containers.   I used blue veronica, Quicksand and Amnesia roses, lavender, pink and white astrancia and dusty miller foliage.
I spray painted goblets with blackboard paint and wrote the table numbers in chalk on them.  Mercury glass votives filled the tables as well.  We hung glass votive holders from the trees around the tent and laid oriental rugs to create a runner for the bride to walk on.  Lots of lovely details for this wedding.
