Caleb's shades of blue

Our first wedding of August was last weekend, and they were Caleb's clients.  You might not realize this but Caleb, in addition to being hilarious, handsome and an incredible painter, is a wonderful designer.  There was only a month's notice with which to plan.  The bride and her mother came in with their only request being blue.  Here is what he came up with!

Beautiful hydrangea, vanda orchids, delphinium, veronica (the name of the bride!), callas & more.

Also some viburnum berries & dusty miller are added in!

The contrast of dark plum is gorgeous next to the blue & white!

The reception took place at the Women's Club of Evanston, a truly beautiful venue.  It has that old Southern Charm flair, and whenever we walk through the doors with expect to see potted ferns and ladies & gents sipping sweet tea and bourbon.

Both the high & low centerpieces were surrounded by sweet satellite vases, filled with hydrangea, wildflowers and orchids.  The colors popped so amazingly in the room.  Sorry the photo above is a bit blurry!

Mercury glass & crystal candelabras added a little bit of sparkle & shine.

The tall centerpieces (below) were lush and fill of texture and beauty!

Congratulations to Veronica & Nelson!!!
