Though Danai and Barak had originally cut this stunning wall of flowers (which served as the background for their vows during the ceremony and the band during the reception) out of their budget, the bride’s mother, with the help of Amaryllis Inc., surprised them with it at the last minute.

2. This asymmetrical arch.

Big, beautiful dahlias really steal the show in this wedding arch by Holly Heider Chapple Flowers at Lally and Kyle’s vineyard wedding.
