After their photo session at Union Station, it was time for the ceremony! Photos by Dayna Schroeder Photography. Grace from Vale of Enna did a spectacular job creating the aisle and faux alter. I typically don't see gladiolas used that often in wedding florals, but I'm really loving how they looked! And FYI, they are also a very economical flower.
Vases of submerged gladiolas in shades of fuchsia, purple and orange, topped with a floating candles lined the long aisle. At the alter, lush arrangements of tall gladiolas, willow branches and hanging candles atop clear acrylic pillars flanked the Unity Candle table.
A close up of the low and tall arrangements.
The simple tea-length wedding programs I created for the ceremony.
Blanca looked radiant on the arms of her father and her brother.
TIP: A 5-foot wide cloth aisle runner makes a huge difference in creating an elegant look, especially when the ceremony is in a brightly carpeted area.
The new Mr. & Mrs.!
