A wedding in Hyannisport. So windblown and wholesome!

A person would be hard pressed to find a more picture-perfect East Coast beach wedding spot than the Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport, MA.  Apparently the location comes with the option of a Supreme Court Justice as officiant, and your own paparazzi.  In all seriousness, congratulations to Patrick and Amy Kennedy, who were wed, yes, by Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.  (Who were you expecting, Scalia)? We didn’t get the best view but, we’re going to talk about the flowers as best we can.  Note to the AP – zoom in on the bouquet when Maria’s daughters tie the knot, ok?

The bouquet:  Though from afar, looks quite beautiful – hydrangea, miniature green calla lillies, and we’re willing to bet white roses and bells-of-Ireland.  Bells of Ireland are a lovely nod to  the family’s Irish heritage, and they can be seen in the altar-pieces as well.  The Irish history nod is a classic Kennedy bride move – check out the shamrocks on Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg‘s custom Carolina Herrera gown. But back to the bouquet – it is “composed,” or “english garden” style meaning the flowers are grouped by type rather than all mixed together. We frequently design in this style.
