For Jo and Andrew’s wedding we stuck with a color palette of rich reds, deep eggplant purples, and the deep hues of the autumn leaves from the many beech trees that cover Ireland. I think building the ceremony arches for this wedding is right up there with my favorite flower memories of all time. It was so wonderful to work with such a creative and smart team. Pearl and Godiva and Hana were incredible partners for this design. We covered the existing arches in the conservatory with ivy and hops, and then build the most colorful autumn arch for Jo and Andrew to be married beneath. The materials for the arch were top notch, many of them grown by Hana herself. It included autumn beech branches, hop vines, roses, crab apples, hydrangea, and an assortment of miscellaneous vegetable leaves that were transitioning into autumn colors.
