Honoring Those That Have Passed

Amanda+Nick's Wedding Day

Ceremony and Reception: Western Lakes Golf Club, Pewaukee
Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers
Month: August

When honoring important people that have passed on, most bridal couples have used flowers as a representation of the deceased be it a single rose or an arrangement of flowers. Sometimes a candle is lit in their memory.  Amanda and Nick decided to use lockets to honor Nick’s father.

Nick’s bouttoniere of a peach spray rose and babies breath was wrapped in ivory ribbon and a locket with his dad’s picture was added.  His groomsmen, 1 of the ushers, the ring bearer and 1 of his grandfathers (all his relatives) wore babies breath with the stems wrapped in mint and had his father’s picture added to the stem.  The rest of the gentlemens bouttonieres were matching without the locket.  Nick’s mother and grandmothers corsages, a mix of spray roses and babies breath on an ivory pearl band, also had the locket incorporated in them.

The overall theme of their wedding was Vintage. The flowers Amanda chose for her bouquet were soft and romantic, a combination peach stock and spray roses, soft pink dahlias, fragrant gardenias, lambs ear and babies breath.  The stems were wrapped with fabric from her mother’s wedding dress and veil and we added her 
grandmother’s brooch to finish it off.

Amanda’s bridesmaids wore mint green dresses and carried a mix of peach and blush spray roses and babies breath and the stems were wrapped in matching mint ribbon.  A locket with each girls’ name finished off the bouquet.

For the reception flowers, Amanda and Nick brought in to us milk white vases that we added a single spray rose stem and babies breath.  Each table had 3 vases in the center which added to the romantic ambiance to their reception.  

Congratulations to Nick and Amanda,  all of us at Bank of Memories & Flowers were so thrilled to be able to share your wedding day.
