What a wedding! We were eagerly anticipating the wedding of Pitch Perfect stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin and we were not disappointed in the least! The handsome due was hitched on Saturday September 10 at the gorgeous Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. Anna looked pretty perfect herself in a Reem Acra gown, while Skylar was handsome in his Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo.

The details were superb! And the flowers are truly drool worthy, designed by Lotus and Lily Floral. There were flowers, flowers and more flowers, which apparently Anna can’t get enough of. We loved this amazing backdrop of assorted pastel blooms and greenery used to frame the guest welcome sign.We also adored the vine and flower covered wedding arch, the beautiful romantic table settings, and this stunning and highly romantic vignette of flowers peeking out of a vintage dresser (swoon)!

The ceremony took place outdoors, beneath a stunning floral arch, and more mixed greens were used to accent the aisle. If you would like your own floral arch it’s not out of reach! Order bulk flowers and DIY a version yourself. Check out our Floral Backdrops blog to learn more. The couples’ Puggle, Rocky, did duty as ring bearer.

A cocktail hour followed, and then guests moved to the reception area which was adorned by small lights. A similar mix of pastel flowers adorned the tables, in soft  and romantic shades of peach, pink and lavender. Apparently the couple was inspired by the natural beauty of a sunset and wanted colors in similar shades. They incorporated these shades into every aspect of their wedding from the invitations to the linens. The flowers on the tables were absolutely superb!

We LOVED this simple but elegant escort presentation! Grab this idea and try it for your own event; you can even find accessible bud vases at the local dollar store, and buy your roses in bulk from a reputable online vendor such as BunchesDIrect.

These beautiful accents wee enjoyed by about 100 guests, including fellow cast mates Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks and Brittany Snow, who served as bridesmaid. After sunset, the after party took pace down in the caves of the winery, which was transformed into a disco complete with red lights and disco balls.

Anna and Josh looked ecstatically happy after their very special day, and we also love yet another look at her amazing pink, lavender and peach roses.

We wish them all the best! .

From the last days of August throughout September we saw some big celebrities tie the knot, with some amazing gowns, venues and wedding flowers. Here are the highlights—enjoy!

August 30: Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg

Actress and former View co-host Jenny McCarthy married actor and former New Kids On the Block star Donnie Wahlberg at the classic Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois. It was the second marriage for both. (Jenny’s son Evan helped Donnie with the proposal by delivering notes to his Mom.) The guests included Sherry Shephard and other members of NKOTB fame, though Donnie’s big brother Mark was a no-show. Mark Tweeted his good wishes. His excuse for missing the wedding? His daughter Ella’s birthday. Jenny looked very happy (bountiful cleavage and all) in a strapless gown she bought from Bergdorf Goodman.

For Jenny’s wedding flowers and decor, she opted for a glam red and white theme. Red is always a dramatic, high contrast choice with a white gown, and black tux. If you love this look, check out our BunchesDirect picks (at a fraction of the cost). You can also purchase gorgeous bulk red roses for your cake.

(And in the latest news, Jenny has revealed that she already lost her wedding band…while “enjoying her honeymoon” at the hotel. I don’t think Donnie will be too angry.)

 

 

 

 

 

August 31: Gabrielle Union & Dwayne Wade 

Actress Gabrielle Union married NBA star Dwayne Wade in a sunset ceremony at Chateau Artisan, a private, castle-like estate in the Miami area which boasts a private lake and a moat. The couple celebrated with family and friends, including Dwayne’s two oldest sons and his nephew. Gabrielle was stunning (as always) in a strapless gown by Dennis Basso, while Dwayne rocked a white tuxedo from Dsquared2. If you are blinded by the photo, it’s probably a result of the rock on Gabrielle’s finger: her engagement ring is a whopping 8.5 carat diamond that is worth almost a cool million bucks. This is the second marriage for both.

If you love Gabrielle’s look, try the BunchesDirect Classic White Rose bouquet, or Snowy Night, with less greenery if you prefer that option:

September 8, Ashley Tisdale & Christopher French

 

 

Ashley Tisdale of High School Musical fame married rocker Christopher French at a venue just outside of Santa Barbara, California. Ashley wore a lovely gown by designer Monique Lhuillier with a fairy-tale wreath of wedding flowers in her hair, while Christopher looked handsome in his John  Varvatos suit.

 

 

 

The pair had 6 bridesmaids including pal and fellow actress Vanessa Hudgens. The bridesmaids wore unmatched gowns in different shades of pink, slate and nude, with crown braids in their hair.

The wedding was described as “rustic and romantic” by their wedding planner, and included wooden farm tables with lace runners. Garden roses were a feature of their wedding flower selections. The 100 guests tossed white flower petals on the couple after the ceremony.

September 13: Lauren Conrad & William Tell

 

The star of MTV’s hit The Hills, who is now a style maven and clothing designer, married musician-turned-lawyer William Tell at a mountainside vineyard in Santa Ynes, California. Lauren has revealed that her lacy, sheer-backed gown was designed by famous duo Mark Badgley & James Mischka. They describe the ivory Chantilly and Alencon lace gown as “simple and classic, yet glamorous.” Near the end of the fittings, Lauren had the sleeves removed for greater comfort and a more suitable balance for her frame. She added a stunning 10-foot-long train and an ornate gold leaf barrette to complete her look.

Lauren provided her nine bridesmaids a choice of gowns in two shades from her own Paper Crown bridesmaid collection. Bridesmaids included BFF and Paper Crown co-founder Maura McManus and former co-star Lo Bosworth. Lauren gave her bridesmaids gift bags containing nail polish in nude and pale pink to coordinate with their dresses.

She based some of her decor choices on an “apple” theme in a play on her husband’s name (in case you forgot, the original William Tell, according to popular legend, split an apple on his son’s head using a crossbow. Don’t try this at home). She found a brass apple at a flea market and sourced brass vases to match; she also baked 50 apple pies for the reception (now that’s dedication). The guests received welcome canvas bags with an apple and arrow logo on them. Party favors included a special “game night box” with a custom “Crazy In Love Eights” deck and a “Recovery Kit” for the morning after.

The couple’s 230 guests were treated to cocktails upon arrival. Lauren entered with her father to the strains of the Beatle’s “In My Life.” Her aisle runner was burlap scattered with gold eucalyptus leaves, and the couple spoke their own vows during the nondenominational ceremony.

For the flowers, Lauren insisted that sweet peas be included in the blooms, as these were the first flowers that William gave her (awwww). They exited to the Beatle’s song “The Two of Us,” which was the first song that Lauren ever heard William perform. Another romantic moment came when William sang to his new bride partway through the reception.

For a similar look to Lauren’s wedding flowers, try Bygone Glamour Centerpieces, perhaps customized with your personal preference of white flowers, with a choice of a delicate white bouquet.

Although there have been few successful relationships from the Bachelor/Bachelorette, we enjoy celebrating the few which have lead to marriage. Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, tied the knot last night, at a beautiful ceremony in California. Ashley’s wedding dress was a custom made mermaid style dress with beaded shoulder straps accenting an elegant exposed back. JP and Ashley where absolutely cute in planning their wedding, splurging on wedding cake tasting and enjoying the beauty that their wedding flowers brought to their reception and ceremony.

JP and Ashley had a stunning huppah (a traditional Jewish wedding canopy) over flowering with white and light pink roses, white hydrangea and dark greenery. It seems the couple was on exactly the same page when it came to the color theme. Ashley wanted accents subtle of light pink through-out the wedding and the wedding planner incorporated this beautifully in the wedding flower arrangements including the bridal bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquets. JP’s tux was accented with a very simple white boutonniere. Their backdrop of their wedding included an evergreen wall spotted with roses hydrangeas and other soft flowers that blended perfectly with the rest of their wedding flowers.

The elegant floral arrangements continued into the reception. The couple had tall centerpieces decorated with light pink roses, white hydrangeas, white roses, some white orchids and beautiful green-jade flowers as accent. These beautiful centerpieces are sure to be a trend in many weddings, this upcoming spring.
