Yesterday, I met with my lovely florist, Kristen from Kio Kreations, to view the ceremony site in full bloom and decide if we need to add any more arrangements. We decided that we really need nothing besides petals, and a piece of fabric for the arch. I'll explain that once we hit the right photo...
The entrance to the park, with the ceremony tent peeking out:
This looks like the same shot, but I really just walked to the other side of the garden (so the tent is at my back, and took a picture of the entrance.
The tent! Straight ahead is where we'll be standing, with chairs filling up the grassy area...
This is where we'll be standing in less than 8 weeks!
The black arch you see has been primed for clematis growth, but it doesn't look like it will fill up completely in time for the wedding, so we're going to secure green sheer fabric (that will match the sashes on the chairs) and stretch that across the top of the arch. It won't be draped, as Kristen thinks that will take away from the simplicity of the garden itself.
There will be large amounts of petals, however. They will line the aisle, outline the circle, and then fill it to create the "pillow carpet" that I had talked about previously.
Magic, I tell ya.
