Tanda and Neil's Reception

Tanda and Neil's wedding was very unique. They held their reception at the rustic Broken Oar Restaurant in Moab, Utah. For her wedding, Tanda wanted her decor to look natural, yet elegant, with white oriental lilies. Her wedding had a fishing theme, and her colors were cobalt blue and lime green. This wedding proved an enjoyable challenge.

For the centerpieces, I used fragrant white oriental lilies with greenery. Each vase has a different and unique fishing lure attached to the ribbon around the vase. On the longer tables, I used 3 vases. The other tall vase has a white fish in it.

In this picture, the fish are actually white and not orange goldfish. Two of these were placed on the cake table.

This was an area near her sign-in table. We decorated this area with a green garland, cream votives and black and white photos of Tanda and Neil.

Here is her sign-in table. Her sign-in album was genius! The quilt was sewn by her mother to match her wedding colors. It was so intricate. We set up the arrangement and a set of candles to set off the arrangement, and used the quilt to hide the restaurant's cash register.

Other Flowers: Corsages, Boutonnieres, Hairpieces

Hairpieces: For her bridesmaids, Tanda wanted lily hairpieces. I found lilies that had lime green centers on their petals, and created a jeweled center for each one, gluing the flowers onto alligator clips. For the babies and really little girls, I created headbands.

I loved the bouquet's handle. I used pleated white ribbon, with a button and ribbon in the center. The bouquet had white lilies, green hydrangeas, white peonies and roses, and some little blue flowers. Boutonnieres: I used mini lilies and eucalyptus to make the boutonnieres. They were adorned with green ribbon, little blue flowers, and jewels in the center of the lilies.

The mothers' corsages were made of the same lilies as the hairpieces and jeweled centers, but with the addition of blue and green organza ribbon. A brooch pin was fastened onto the back of the flower.
