Oak Tree Manor

We were thrilled to design for Tara and Jeremy’s wedding in April.  They got married under the huge oak tree at Oak Tree Manor.  Many thanks to Brittney Melton for the beautiful photos and to Brittany Sunday who did a fabulous job coordinating that day!

Navy and Mustard

Well we’re in the middle of summer and it is HOT.  These are photos from a wedding we did last December.  It was a nice chilly day and at least when I look at these, I feel a little cooler.  This bride went a bit away from the norm and embraced a navy and mustard yellow color scheme.  Enjoy!

 

Bridesmaids carried bouquets of baby’s breath and craspedia.

The Bridal Bouquet was a combination of ivory roses, white ranunculus, navy privet berries and craspedia.

Ashton Gardens

Twice a year we have the privilege of providing arrangements for Ashton Gardens’ quarterly tasting event.  Since we have creative freedom with these designs, we enjoy getting to choose a variety of flowers to showcase different color schemes.  Just thought we would give a little glimpse of the one this past May.

Belle Rose Maison

We did this pink and blue wedding last fall at Belle Rose Maison.  A blue and pink color combination can sometimes be tough to pull off – we had one bride say, “Make sure it doesn’t look like a baby shower!” – but when done right like at this gorgeous bride’s wedding, it is beautiful!  Here are some pics of the table arrangements, the boutonniere, and the bridal bouquet (held by my favorite model – my daughter!).  Enjoy!

Olive, Tangerine, and Plum Flowers

Sara and Anthony were married at Ashelynn Manor this past December.  They chose a beautiful color scheme of olive green, tangerine orange, and plum purple.  That fun combination of shades gave an amazing, unexpected pop of color to this winter wedding.  Congratulations, Sara and Anthony!

Walkin’ in A Winter Wonderland

While we may have experienced a crazy snow storm this week…okay, more like snow drizzle, we usually don’t experience white winters of any kind here.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a winter wonderland wedding.  Our bride Allie wanted a winter wedding and with her love for the creative and unique, we got to design some perfectly winter arrangements.  We used blends of whites, grays, blush pinks, succulents, silvers, and branches to create a warm winter wonderland wedding at the beautiful Ashelynn Manor.  Below are some photos to give you a taste of what a winter wedding can be (these are not the professional photos…just our iPhone…we will share the professional ones when they come in)!

Anemones, silver brunia, roses, dusty miller, succulents, and ranunculus created this lovely wintery bouquet!

By far one of my favorite arrangements we have designed…vases filled with birch branches, rock salt and topped with beautiful florals and silver branches!

We created and arch for the bride to walk through using a mix of white, blush and gray florals at the base and silver curly willow branches arching out.

The Bold and The Beautiful

No, we are not talking about the soap opera, but these flowers have just as much drama!  We love pops of bold colors to add dramatic flair to any floral arrangement.

Centerpieces don’t have to be big to make a statement. The contrast of color makes these stand out!

Behind every arrangement is…well, a floral designer. And in this case, one that didn’t want to part with the bridal bouquet of stock, eucalyptus, dahlias, roses and garden roses.

Something Blue…..

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!  It’s that last one that can be the trickiest for a bride to come up with.  And it’s no different with flowers.  There are very few blooms that are naturally blue.  But if you are open to a variety of shades and floral options, the results can be “bluetiful” (yes I went there).   See for yourself…we think these something blues are perfect!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We are so thankful for this business that allows us to meet the greatest brides in the world.  Here are some photos from a fall harvest/pumpkin themed wedding we did this fall.

 

Beautiful “just gathered” fall bouquets…

Aren’t these tiny pumpkin bouts the cutest?

This was the sweetheart table.  Ashley hand-painted the bride’s and groom’s initials.  The table looked awesome decorated with pumpkins, leaves and fall berries.

Sunflowers!

Even though it has not really cooled down here yet, I still miss the summer.  It is my favorite time of year!  So I thought I would share these photos of a late August wedding we did at Ashton Gardens that featured the sunflower, a bloom that always reminds me of summer.  The bride chose a coral and deep yellow color scheme which you don’t see very often, but we thought it looked great!

And I like to take photos of Ashley in action at almost every wedding.  She’s photo bombing the first photo….
