Knightly Wedding at Higgins Armory

            In August the Floral Elegance team had a blast designing the florals for a wedding at The Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, Mass. The contrast of the metallic armor and sharp implements dueled against the soft textures and warm colors of the flowers. This set the tone for this medieval wedding.

               The bride carried a hand tied bouquet of green cymbidium orchids, green hydrangea, red and black baccara roses, red hypericum berries, finished with black feathers for a touch of goth.
               The bridesmaids wore black dresses in various styles. Their bouquets featured the same flowers as the bride, but without the feathers. The stems were finished in black satin.



The reception felt grand with eye catching tall silver trumpet vases dripping
with foliage and mokara orchids. The cool feeling of the metal vases and the
surrounding metal artifacts contrasted beautifully with the heat of the red roses,
red hypericum berries tempered with lime green accents. The black baccarra roses
added a rich sophistication. The bride and groom cut down on the cost of their
wedding flowers by renting the tall silver trumpet vases from Floral Elegance.
Renting props is always a nice way to cut down costs, and still achieve the look
of your dreams.
