I had my final meeting with my florist yesterday. Uhh that total was a little shocking, but I guess flowers are an important part of the ceremony and reception :)
Our ceremony is taking place in the museum gardens, so we really didn't have to get too crazy with the flowers. The main focus will be the jackson vine and floral archway, a few large arrangements and the floral stakes that will go on the end of each row of seats.
Here are some venue pictures of the courtyard and then the restraunt looking out to the terrace:
The reception is where most of our floral budget went. We are having the hors d'oeuvres and mingle area in the actual museum restaurant. The main reception will take place under the restaurants tented terrace which will be lined with a silk liner. This is the look I'm going for with the tented reception:
Here is an example of what most of my tall table centerpieces will look like (just not quite as elaborate at the picture, but similar style and color scheme):
