Friday night weddings are becoming more and more popular, especially with popular venues like B & A Warehouse that books months in advance.
Morgan & Matthew married in September at the beautiful Trinity United Methodist Church in Homewood, Alabama. These lovely photos were provided to us from the always wonderful Ann Wade Parrish of Ann Wade Parrish Photography. You can check out more of her work at http://www.awweddings.com.
Morgan wore an ivory lace a-line gown with a sweetheart neckline and a chapel length train. She chose an all white and cream bouquet made up of white calla lilies, hydrangea, roses, and touches of dusty miller.
The most important ladies in Morgan’s life wore charcoal dresses and carried what we feel might be the most beautiful bouquet we’ve ever made. Composed of a mixture of roses including hot pink & blush garden roses, cream roses, yellow roses, as well as pink ranunculas framed in by dusty miller and what might be the most stunning detail of the entire bouquet: a dark echevaria succulent that matched the girls’ dresses perfectly.
Matthew and his groomsmen wore white calla lily boutonnieres with dusty miller.
Blush roses, white oriental lilies, green hydrangea, white stock, seeded eucalyptus, gerbera daisies, and dusty miller were used in pew markers, unity candle flowers, and the altar arrangements. The same flowers were also carried through to the grapevine wreath that hung at the entrance of B & A Warehouse as guests arrived to the reception.
If you have never been to B & A Warehouse in downtown Birmingham you should visit soon! It is across the street from the wonderful Railroad Park and is rustic and contemporary at the same time. Hors d’oeuvres were served as guests arrived and the food table centerpiece was in a silver urn and was made up of colorful roses, daisies, hydrangea, lilies, hydrangea, bells of Ireland, and a little baby’s breath.
Morgan chose two different looks for her centerpieces. Each table had a classic white linen with burlap runners. The first arrangement was mason jars with stems of individual flowers in each. These consisted of baby’s breath, dusty miller, and circus roses with votive candles around them. The second arrangement was a mixture of birch branches and white hydrangeas in a birch container also with votive candles.
Many of our brides choose to repurpose their bridesmaids bouquets and this can be done several ways. Morgan’s bridesmaids bouquets were placed in birch vases on hi-boy tables throughout the reception area.
The bridal cake was placed in the center of the room and was topped with a mound of flowers that coordinated with the wedding. Morgan’s bouquet is displayed on the cake table in a silver vase.
