For this fall wedding at Congressional Country Club, the color palette was full of juicy berry tones with pops of orange and peach. It was Halloween weekend after all so we had a subtle nod to the holiday with orange persimmon fruits and bittersweet vines, and of course, moody black taper candles. The flowers included luxurious garden roses and locally grown dahlias, accented with textural scabiosa, ranunculus, and nandina foliage from my own garden. The nandina foliage was the perfect viney accent for the cake - which was one of my favorite cakes to date - I loved its simplicity and how the icing perfectly echoed the bride's textural wedding gown and the floral accents mimicked her bouquet. The centerpieces complimented the club's Mediterranean architecture - with aged terra cotta footed bowls nodding to the terra cotta roof tiles, and burnished brass tones mirroring the intricate ceiling detail and tones of the hanging tapestries in the ballroom.
Thanks to the very kind and talented Jacqueline Patton for sharing these photos of the day!
