We were excited to participate on once again in Indie Wed, held on Saturday at the Ravenswood Event Center! Indie Wed is “THE alternative to traditional wedding expos.” Traditional wedding expos are not our thing, so we’re happy to have this opportunity to meet potential clients who also have a more independent spirit.
Pollen’s 2014 Indie Wed display
Amanda joined me (Lynn) again to person our booth. Our grey backdrop was accented with flowering branches framing the structure. On display, we featured three different wedding looks, with a centerpiece and bouquet for each. All three were in our signature gardeny style, some more whimsical than others!
Bouquet in purple, orange, and pink, with Dark Milva roses, purple lisianthus, scabiosa, allium, and jasmine.
One look was gardeny and bright, in tones of purple, orange, and pink. Ornamental kale, dahlias, and roses were the focal flowers, with scabiosa and hanging amaranth adding interest. I created a loose, tall piece in a clear vase, as well as a bouquet in a a complementary style.
Another vignette was soft, romantic, and vintage-y, in a muted color palette of grey, peach, and ivory. A low centerpiece of spray roses, dusty miller, amaryllis, and anemone in a gold mercury glass compote was accompanied by a bouquet, boutonniere, and mercury glass votives.
Centerpiece with artichokes
The third set was a bit more dramatic, with artichokes, ranunculus, and scented geranium in a dark, rich color scheme. The centerpiece’s container was a bronze footed urn. I ended up wearing the boutonniere I made for this vignette. I unintentionally wore an outfit that matched it quite perfectly!
Thanks to all who stopped by! If you missed us at Indie Wed, we’ll be at Committed at the end of the month.
