I met Eleni and Peter at an open house at the Belvedere back in March. They were a super cute couple that seemed really excited about their October wedding. The Belvedere was the perfect location for this classic, yet modern couple.
The bride carried a bouquet filled with white and dark purple/burgundy dahlias. The girls wore beautiful eggplant dresses with bouquets that were similar to the brides. In every picture I’ve seen from the wedding, Peter looks like the happiest man alive. He wore a elegant tuxedo with a simple boutonniere made from a dahlia and a splash of eucalyptus.
For the centerpieces, the couple wanted something low to the table that wouldn’t complete with the grandeur of the ballroom. Since they had purchased cylindrical table numbers (that also doubled as a votive covers) we decided on floral wreaths. While floral wreaths seem like a very traditional centerpiece, we modernized it by using bright green monkey balls, burgundy, white and purple dahlias, and lots of rich colored greens including smoke bush and purple basil. I love how they turned out!
Thanks to our growers for the beautiful flowers-especially Wollam Gardens who provided most of the dahlias. Thank too to the wonderful ladies at Truffles who were a joy to work with. Finally, special thanks to Borrowed Blue Photography for the beautiful photos.
