Bella Bride: Michele Ammann and Aaron Eastwood

Here at Bella Flora, the end of a wedding is always a bitter sweet moment -- we are so happy for the new bride and groom, but a bit sad to say goodbye to the wonderful clients we have been working with for so long. That's why we were extra excited for Michele Ammann's special day. Team Bella did her sister's wedding and loved getting to know their great family, so working with them again was such a treat! 170 of Michele and Aaron's closest friends and family came out to celebrate the happy couple August 20, 2010. Check out their stylish wedding and the great group of people that made it possible at the end of the post.

The pair exchanged vows at The Rotunda in Dallas in a chic ceremony. Michele chose a trendy color palette of deep violets, fuchsias, golds, and touches of black and incorporated vintage accents throughout the decor. Glass cylinders filled with violet and fuchsia submerged orchids and floating candlelight lined the aisle for a soft glow along the path.

The altar area was adorned with a collection of floor standing glass cylinders of varying heights, each filled with a graphic violet and fuchsia orchid garland and topped with floating candlelight. Select vessels also had stemming presentations of fluttery fuchsia orchids that added a lively tone to the ceremony decor. Hot pink toned petals were sprinkled at the base to complete the romantic setting.

She is gorgeous! And the bouquet isn't half bad either! Michele was given a unique and charming bouquet designed from delicate ivory rose petals. The overall styling was made to resemble a large camellia blossom, which tied in beautifully with the vintage feel. The pop of feathers really made the bouquet stand out!

The bridesmaids were given stylish bouquets designed with a violet, fuchsia, and lilac toned palette. Stems included hydrangeas, varying orchids and rosettes. A chic collaring of black plume feathers was designed around the base, giving the bouquets a unique look.

Love this sweet picture of Michele and her mom.

Sealed with a kiss!

"What did I do?!"

The Petroleum Club in Dallas was the perfect location for the reception. The purples and violets really sparkled in that space!

Placed atop selected tables was a collection of glass cylinders of varying heights filled with alternating combinations of violet orchid garland, submerged plum callas and raspberry garlands. The central cylinder was placed atop a custom light box that illuminated the arrangement and added a cool and swank accent to the room.

The remaining tables were adorned with a glass bubble bowl elevated atop a low lying glass cylinder. A mound of rich purple hydrangeas were styled within the low lying glass cylinder while the bubble bowl held fluttery stems of fuchsia toned orchids. A quartet or candlelight completed with modern table setting as well as smaller bubble bowls holding plum toned calla lilies.

Purple is the new IT color!

The beautiful purple orchids cascading down the cake worked perfectly with the yummy creation from Audrey Ross.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Eastwood! Thanks for letting Bella Flora be a part of your fun day!
