Kara and Dan chose Memorial Day weekend to celebrate their wedding with their closest family and friends in Salina, KS. They met in college and then later in Med School finally deciding that they were each other’s better half. Since both Dan and Kara choose to do their residency in Salina they thought it would be the perfect location for their wedding as well.
Kara’s bridal bouquet included hydrangea, dendrobium orchids, freesia, jasmine vine and her favorite flower…tuberoses.
The bridesmaid bouquets included purple hydrangea, purple stock, deep purple carnations, wax flower, and seeded eucalyptus.
The pews at the church were decorated with coordinating purple flowers and place in mint julep cups.
Up at the altar we placed a medium-sized floral piece on each candelabras to bring in their purple and turquoise color scheme.
The unity candle was surrounded by purple/turquoise dendrobium orchids for a simple but elegant pop of color.
The larger reception held for their many family and friends was held at the Sheraton there in town. For their centerpieces we decided to go with a few different options to give an overall look of variation and height.
The tall centerpieces included white hydrangea, purple stock, deep purple carnations, purple/turquoise dendrobium orchids, and curly willow both inside the vase as well as gracefully coming out of the top to give the piece extra height.
For the low round centerpieces we wrapped each vase with green ti leaves and then topped them off with white hydrangea, purple tulips, deep purple carnations, blue thistle and seeded eucalyptus.
As a third option we had a centerpiece made out if many different types of bud vases and various sizes of pillar candles to really set off the mood and overall feel of a wedding. This centerpiece really looked great when the lights were dimmed and the dancing was happening in full force!
