We defined our “vibe” for this wedding as light and airy. Pale pinks, rich mauves and soft peaches, creams and whites created the base of our floral recipe with accents of magnolia foilage and abundant greens.
The wedding took place in the Celebration Gardens at Herman Park Conservancy. If you haven’t been here, it’s open to the public (when there is not a private event) and it’s an absolutely breathtaking environment. My husband and I actually took our kiddos there for an afternoon play session. It was perfect…fresh air, wide open spaces, fences….and flowers. I digress…
Lauren had such a classic vision for her wedding that she was able to articulate well, and we had a blast collaborating with her and our good friend Sabrina Lee from Lillie Jane Designs to execute her wedding design.
Lauren’s bridal bouquet was designed in a classic round shape that we spiraled into a hand-tied confection. The single variety recipe of Mother of Pearl roses created this super dreamy bouquet. We picked this rose for it’s multi-dimensional color gradient. The blush petals on the outside transition to a pearlescent sherbet shade center.
We used our acylic pedestals to create an alter focal area in 3 levels on each side. A compote arrangement designed in our Lita compote was placed atop the pedestals.
Our Full Service clients have access to our entire rental collection to utilize as decor elements for their wedding. We are constantly updating our rental inventory based on the current trend, so let us know if you want something, and we’ll see if we have it!
We placed more of the compote arrangements on our 12″ acrylic cube at the entrance to the aisle. Swags of greenery and blush blooms hung on the chairs lining the aisle.
When parsing out your floral needs, make sure to think of areas where you need a little “something.” We call a tiny arrangement like this design on the communion table a “petite votive.” These can go in places like restrooms, on the bar, lounge tables, cocktail tables, or any area that you want to bring some color and texture to.
Remember we like to suggest repurposing. Lauren and Zack were able to repurpose all of their ceremony arrangements sitting on pedestals to the guest tables for the reception. If you’ve already paid for flowers for the ceremony, think of places you can repurose those items for the reception.
