Carrie & Christian's Canfield Casino Wedding

Last month I had the pleasure to design for Carrie and Christian's wedding at The Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs. The flowers used throughout were soft and classic.

Wedding Bouquet - Pink and White - Canfield Casino - Splendid Stems

She carried a fluffy bouquet of antique hydrangeas, peonies, and garden roses.

It smelled incredible, is it strange to confess I wanted to eat it? Peonies can illicit craziness - in a good way.

A magic "wand" for the flower girl. I think it is a nice alternative to the traditional petal basket

Corsages, corsages, corsages!

Carrie supplied the lanterns used throughout the wedding. I was in love with the local cherry blossoms this year- very local, thanks to my generous neighbor. I love to prune, just saying.......

It is a little hard to see, but they had their engagement photos made into a guest book. I loved this idea.





Centerpieces of antique hydrangea and English David Austin garden roses - the groom is from England so I tried to be as authentic as I could, not sure if anyone but me would know though.

The cake tiers were separated to make room for the lush antique hydrangea.

The Canfield Casino is somewhat unassuming on the outside.



Just a little picture of the van packed and ready to go. A lot of thought and care (dare I say stress????) goes into  transport and delivery - a process that is customized for every event.
Congratulations Carrie and Christian! We wish you every happiness in the world. Cheerio!

  2. I wanted the David Austen garden roses for my wedding, but didn't know the name and the person we worked with had no idea what I was talking about! I got some nice garden roses, but they weren't the same. These are beautiful flowers!
