Real Weddings: Sara + Jeff

A beautiful early spring wedding with flowers by Fiore Blossoms, fabulous photos by Azzura Photography.
Sara did such a beautiful job of planning the little details. Gorgeous paper, table markers with photos of their travels, and a tastefully carried out theme of cherry blossoms. She wanted to evoke the cherry blossom season in Japan, so we used dried petite rose petals from Flyboys Naturals on the table--they looked just like fallen blossoms. We also hung over 50 strands of white orchids from the ceiling of the Shilshole Bay Beach Club, reminiscent of the actual blossoms falling from the trees.
My favorite picture of the day...Sara and her bouquet of the palest pink peonies and pink cymbidium orchids.

Sara's bridesmaids also carried pink peonies, but in a slightly darker shade mixed with pink ranunculus.

Reception details. The tables had mounds of white hydrangea with blooming cherry branches and petite rose petals. Sara labeled the tables with cities that she and Jeff have visited.

And a sweet closing shot. Azzura does such an amazing job of capturing the day. To check out more of their work, drop into their new blog, The Azzura Cafe!

This wedding is beautiful! Those peony bouquets are spectacular and I love the centerpieces. Your talent amazes me!

Aww, thanks Robin! But really, you don't need too much talent when you've got peonies to work with.
