Rick & Laura Christenhusz - July 17th 2010

I was so excited to do this wedding inside the Kresge Court of the Detroit Institute of Arts in downtwon Detroit. I love all the history and character in this place! Once again Lauri Philippo and her staff at the DIA were amazing and we as a team worked through some last minute floor plan changes flawlessly!

Their personal flowers were made of White Mini Calla Lilies, Escimo Roses, Blue Hydrangea, Blue Delphinium, White Freesia w/Tai Leaf Collars.

The flower girl basket was a smiple white wicker basket that I filled with White Mini Calla Lilies, Escimo Roses, Blue Hydrangea, Blue Delphinium and White Freesia.

Rick lost his Mother suddenly two weeks before their wedding on July 2nd. Needless to say the family was devestated. The groom wanted to memorialize his Mother in his own special ways. So I came up with ideas to incoperate her into the decor aspects of the ceremony and reception. Petit Fleur donated a floral wreath made of Purple Lilac, White Lily of the Valley, Spray Escimo Roses, Blue Delphinium and White Freesia.

Rick's Mother collected Waterford Vases and so we used one of her vases for a few sprigs of flowers to place at her place setting. The Groom also decided to place her corsage on her chair at the ceremony...

The table cloths were Navy Blue Satin Pin-Tuck. We had White Satin bustle chair covers w/Silver Organza Sashes. The tables were finished off with Cobalt Blue Glass candle globes, Silver Charger Plates and White Linen Napkins. We used Globe Style centerpieces in Silver Urns with Escimo Roses, Blue & White Hydrangea, Blue Delphinium, White Freesia and White Casablanca Lilies on one half the tables and then sets of cylinders with crushed glass on the bottom of the cylinders filled with stems of Blue Delphinium on the other half of the tables.

Thank you again Laura & Rick for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
