Jordan and Rob December 2013 Wedding

October and December 2013 proved to be a surprising end of the year for my sister and her family.  I think my sister and brother in law were amazing to be able to pull off two back to back weddings! It is hard to believe Jordan and Rob's wedding was a little over a year ago, only one month after Jordan's sister, Zoe's wedding.

It isn't easy planning a wedding when the bride is in Savannah GA, her parents and florist live in Virginia. My sister is the QUEEN of organization. She planned and coordinated everything, along with the bride and groom to make Jordan and Rob's wedding a memorable and fun day.  Two days before the wedding the groom drove the florist/aunt to the flower wholesaler to pick up the flowers. Putting together wedding flowers in a hotel room, well, there just aren't words for how creative everyone has to be!

Jordan and Rob were married in Savannah at Skidaway Island State Park, WOW, what a beautiful setting for family and the closest of friends to gather underneath the gorgeous Spanish Moss to witness their wedding vows.  The temperature was warm, but the shade was perfect for a December afternoon.

My sister put together this impressive drape that covered a not so beautiful wooden board that serves as a back drop for the outdoor theater.  Her best friend was kind enough to put the finishing touches after the guys attached the drapery. 

Milk glass vases filled with evergreens, seeded eucalyptus, lemon leaf, pink roses, pink lilies, ornaments and pine cones flanked the pink and white backdrop. Lanterns with white candles added a bit of atmosphere and were also used at the reception.

The Matron of Honor's bouquet consisted of pink roses, pink carnations, seeded eucalyptus, pittosporum leaf, pink hypericum berries, pine cones, and evergreens. The bride carried pink and white roses, pink lilies, seeded eucalyptus, pink hypericum berries, pine cones, evergreens, and pearls to match her pearl necklace, a gift from the groom.

A Christmas wedding wouldn't be complete without a Christmas tree filled with frosted pine garland, grapevine spheres, pine cone ornaments, glittered letters and a bird's nest for good luck.

Thank you Jordan and Rob for allowing me to make your wedding flowers! It was such a joy.  Skidaway Island State Park was the perfect place for your wedding and reception.  You had a lovely day, with delicious food, dancing, family, and friends. It couldn't have been any nicer!  We also won't forget having lots of fun trying to get those extra fresh lilies to open!  ;)
