A Classic, Garden-Inspired Wedding at Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro, Oregon
From garden roses and tulips, to sweet peas and orchids—this garden-inspired wedding had flower arrangements and designs in every corner. "Our wedding was inspired by my love for flowers and color," Emily Apeland (24 and a marketing specialist) says of her marriage to Preston Kelly (30 and a fan relations account executive). "I didn't choose a specific palette, but went with white bridesmaid dresses and neutral accents so the flowers would pop. I wanted to keep it classy, but add a touch of my personality." Since the theme stemmed from Emily's love for gorgeous blooms, her bridal bouquet made the largest statement, with vibrant colors and wide variety of flower types. Similar colorful flower arrangements of goldenrods, poppies, stock and lilacs decorated dining tables at reception inside Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro, Oregon. Upon entering, guests selected a flower from the pick-a-flower table to wear throughout the evening. The dessert table had a spread of purple and pink sugar cookies, chocolate-covered miniature pineapple pies and, our favorite, the pink champagne cake covered in buttercream frosting with raspberry filling—decorated with fresh flowers, of course. What a treat! See more details that flourished at this wedding, below.
