Radiant Orchid Wedding at Tupper Manor

Kristin and Rob, April 24, 2015, Tupper Manor, Beverly

Kristin and Rob chose the Pantone Color of The Year for their wedding, Radiant Orchid!  Mixed with Black, it made for an vibrant, striking nighttime affair.  We used some of the most beautiful Orchids I have ever worked with to make the colors pop and everything feel really special.

Tupper Manor was the perfect backdrop for this wedding. It is a very elegant, sophisticated seaside Estate in Beverly.  Outside there are amazing gardens and water views, and inside, every room is intricate and glamorous.

Kristin and Rob held their ceremony in the beautiful Ballroom and it was one of my most favorite parts of this wedding.  lined the aisle with white rose petals and created a multi-level arrangement of orchids and candles.. I have had the vision for this design in my head for a long time and  was waiting for the perfect client to create it for!  I’m so happy that it was such a perfect fit for Kristin and Rob’s wedding.  At the end of the ceremony, guests tossed white and radiant orchid colored rose petals that I placed in little paper cones and placed on each seat. It was spectacular.

Kristin’s hand-tied bouquet contained a mix of Venda Orchid, Mokara Orchids, Dendrobium orchids and Phalaenopsis orchids. The color against her white dress was perfect, while the bridesmaids, dressed in long black gowns, were the perfect backdrop to this beautiful bride!

Guests were welcomed into the reception by a wishing tree I built using Manzanita Branches.  There were pretty cards on which guests wrote special notes to the bride and groom and tied to the tree.  This was a fun guest book alternative that doubled as a beautiful piece of decor for the cocktail hour!  A really nice keepsake.

We tied everything together by carrying the color scheme into the reception.  The centerpieces were staggered height glass cylinder vases with submerged dendrobium orchids and floating candles.  I loved the way the color of the orchids worked perfectly in each setting of the evening; from the bright pop of the bouquets  against the bride’s white dress, to the deep, vibrant color of the centerpieces set against the glow of candle light.
