It’s time for another wedding-related post and this week I’d like to share some photos of the gorgeous flower arrangements that our florist, Toni Ogborn, put together for our wedding a few months ago. Aren’t the pinks, oranges, greens and succulents beautiful together?
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may remember that back in April I posted about painting my own blue mason jars for our wedding. That’s one of my jars in the photo above… it looks pretty real, right? 🙂 If you take a look at that older post you’ll also see my wedding flower inspiration photo. I knew that I wanted my wedding flowers to look just like the bouquet in that photo so I gave a copy of the photo to Toni and asked her to make something similar. I think she did a perfect job!!
I liked my bouquet so much that I brought it home the day after the wedding and used it as the centerpiece on our kitchen table until we left for our honeymoon. Here’s a closer look at the flowers and colors in my bouquet:
My bridesmaids each had bouquets that were wrapped in blue ribbon to match their dresses. I love how bright and bold the flowers were!
Our reception was in a barn so we opted for long tables with burlap runners and lots of small floral arrangements in blue mason jars and quilted jelly jars. These arrangements were simpler, more rustic versions of our bouquets and featured soft garden roses, crazy snap dragons, peach-colored roses and hot pink dahlias.
If you’re getting married in the western Philadelphia suburbs and you are interested in talking to Toni Ogborn about doing your wedding flowers please feel free to send me an e-mail at anne.elizabeth.mcmanus (at) gmail.com and I will be happy to put you in touch with her. I loved the flowers that Toni put together for my wedding and I highly recommend her work! 🙂
Please note: All photos in the post with the exception of the “closer look” at my bouquet were taken by Melissa Hassey of Melissa Hassey Photography. The closer look photo was taken by me with my iPhone the morning after the wedding.

I loved your wedding flowers, Annie. We bought special issue blue Ball pint jars and used them for the table arrangements for Ian’s wedding – which was easier than your very clever trick of painting the canning jars. I especially loved your succulents in the bridal party bouquets, bringing in that blue color. Your flowers were spot-on perfect for a country wedding. You did it all right!
Thanks Jeannette! Yes, I think those special issue blue jars were released right around the time I finished painting my 50th jar… bad timing on my part! Nevertheless, I still had fun with my arts and crafts project. 🙂
I love your wedding photos, and these are no different. Perfect choice on the flowers; they’re gorgeous!
Your flowers were just gorgeous! Love the color combination.
