Whimsical Chuppah

This weekend the Hidden Garden was honored to do the wedding flowers for Lindsay & Adam, at The Four Seasons Los Angeles. The bride loved the look of a natural and whimsical chuppah design. She said, "I want it to look like it just grew there...". Lindsay also loved orchids. So, her chuppah was created from natural curly willow branches completely covered in green and white dendrobium orchids.

Since blossom branches aren't available in October, the combination of the curly willow and the small blooms of orchids created a magnificent and dramatic display. Everyone ooh-ed and ahh-ed over the chuppah, including Lindsay, Adam, and their whole family. Lindsay's bouquet was in all green and ivory flowers, with orchids, roses, stephanotis, and hydrangea. The bridesmaids all carried beautiful fall tones of rust and orange, including golden cymbidium orchids, leonidas roses, and orange makara orchids.

The centerpieces were a tall, dramatic display of orange, yellow, and green orchids with green hydrangea, orange/rust toned roses, and curly willow. More pictures to follow...
