Alaska Weddings: Peter + Philly

Oh, how I love Alaska weddings! There’s something about an Alaska bride. She loves to incorporate her home state into her most special day. Philly was no exception. Her vision was simplicity for the bridal party and big and wild for the bridal bouquet.

The photos can’t do this bouquet justice. There are peonies from every angle. The wholesaler’s peonies were small, but thanks to an old friend with a big peony garden, I was able to compensate with two HUGE blooms, which are what take up most of the photos. While snipping these two gorgeous flowers I sneaked a couple of poppy pods, which add some vintage green to the arrangement. I foraged many wildflowers including clover blossoms, yarrow, cow parsnip and grass berries. Wrapped in lace and twine and you’ve got a soft beauty with a twinge of wild. Utterly romantic.

The bridesmaids each have a small arrangement of baby’s breath — a simple elegance that makes an impact.

The groomsmen have a miniature version of the bridesmaids’ bouquets: tiny bouquets of baby’s breath wrapped in twine. I love it.

The bride and bridesmaids each will don a flower crown made with spray roses and baby’s breath. I would wear this to a tea party any day!

And wrist corsages of spray roses, baby’s breath, eucalyptus leaves and carnations. So delicate and romantic.

And last, but not least, even the dog gets to dress up! This was a first for me, but not unusual for an Alaska wedding.
