Purple Blue Flowers

This is a recent addition to my mother's garden and I really like the colors of these flowers.

They have white-purple centers with the outer petals being blue.

UPDATE: These flowers appear to be of the genus Delphinium. After looking for similar pictures on the Internet they might be the Delphinium elatum aka 'Dasante Blue'. It might also be known under the name Candle Larkspur.

Can you tell me what flower this is?

I'd originally picked a purple-blue orchid for my wedding flowers, but, was a little disappointed to learn they were dyed. I'm hoping I can find a flower just like this. Are these the natural colors of the flowers?

I do not know its name. Yes, it is natural.
I will ask my mother and aunt if they know its name.

Congratulations on your wedding and I hope all goes well for that special day!

Oh, thank you so much! I was able to find a lot of pictures of these beautiful flowers. They're likely to be available for my late summer wedding & I think they'll complement my white orchids so well.
