Wedding at Linfield College
A wedding of all white flowers was the first of our August weddings. It was a beautiful - but hot! - day for the ceremony on the lovely campus of Linfield College in McMinnville. In this photo our floral designer is putting the finishing touches on one of two feature arrangements. They sat atop 5' garden stands. I wish I could have photographed them in place, but it was such a hot day we opted to leave them in the relative cool of the indoors until just before the guests arrived. You couldn't ask for more perfect orchids than these white dendrobiums.Simple and elegant is an excellent choice if you ask me. This bride chose a clean bouquet of just 8 white calla lilies for herself, and 3 for each of her bridesmaids. No greens, no fluff! Flowers as beautiful as these callas make a statement all by themselves.These little arrangements were hung on shepherd's hooks to define the ceremony site. Mother of the bride designated a helper to hang them just before the ceremony, so they would be fresh and lovely despite the 100 degree day. Congratulations to the bride and groom! I know you had a wonderful day.
