Stockton Seaview Wedding

This Stockton Seaview wedding was full of personalized touches and late summer flair!

We designed the centerpieces with locally grown flowers included sage hydrangea, sunflowers, dahlias, zinnias with lush eucalyptus.

 

Dusty Miller

Dusty Miller is a white plant which looks like it has a dusting of snow on its leaves, hence the name Dusty Miller. Dusty miller is native to the Mediterranean coast.  Some varieties of Dusty Miller, have tiny yellow flowers that bloom from it stems, but the flowers are not considered show worthy.  The real star is the plant itself.  This attractive plant is long lasting and drought resistant.  It will leave your garden bed gorgeous all summer long.  It can handle the heat, but it prefers the shade that the afternoon brings.  There are many varieties of dusty miller. Here are a few of the more well-known varieties.

 

  1. The first is “Silver Dust”. It has silvery white foliage with a finely trimmed edge, as its name implies. It grows 12 to 18 inches tall. Silver Dust is often planted with annuals in containers and flowerbeds, making the color contrast striking.

 

  1. The second, is “Silver Lace”. It has decoratively cut, lace-like leaves. It does not grow as tall as other forms of Dusty Miller. It grows only 6 to 8 inches tall. “Silver Lace” is the most delicate-looking of common dusty millers.

 

3. The third, is Cirrus. Unlike its counterparts, Cirrus has less finely cut leaves.  Its dusty covered                    leaves are a bigger and bolder.  They are used in garden beds as ground coverage.  They only grow between 6 to 8 inches tall.

 

Dusty Miller is a beautiful foliage that is used in wedding bouquets and centerpieces.  It gives the bouquets a very soft, romantic look.

Late winter (January- Feb) You cant go wrong with classic all white, or white and light blue. However if classic white isn’t your look, white, blush and burgundy look so romantic among soft candle light.

For early spring (March – April): a huge trend is a pallet of blue, purple, peach and blush tones.   It lets people know you’re ready for winter to be over, and the warm of spring to begin.

All through the summer (May – August)  nothing makes you happier, then it’s sunshine and the bight colors it brings with it.  Very popular are the colors of bright orange, pink and blush.  It will really bring a happy fun element to your wedding.  Another great choice is Purple.  Having a monochromatic theme, with the different shades of purple from lavender to a deep royal purple look gorgeous in a lush garden setting.

“Stephanotis- (stephanotis florabunda)

stephonits

Pure white this petite wedding favorite can be the perfect accent to wedding bouquets, corsages, or the groom’s boutonniere. So popular for the elegance and sweet perfume fragrance, brides love these cute star shaped flowers!

Stephanotis is in the Jasmine vine family, they are native to Africa and green house grown in Tropical Temperatures. Good news.. They are available all year around for all wedding seasons! Despite the delicate nature of these blooms they hold well in warm temperatures due to there growing needs.

We love stephanotis for weddings to accent roses, hydrangeas and gardenias. They are a sophisticated and a touch of class they can also be jeweled.  The centers are hollow and can be adorned with pearls or crystal rhinestones to accent your gown.  So popular among celebrity and royal weddings they are always classic beauties. ”
