These photos are scattered throughout the site, but there's something special about seeing them all together. We took a buggy and botanical leap to set up the ceremony and reception space to reflect a nature-inspired and down-to-earth theme. 

This wedding has also been published on The Overwhelmed Bride Blog and Aisle Society, but we kept a few photos hidden for ourselves ;).

Lotus pods, craspedia, scabiosa pods, leather leaf fern, plumosa, seeded eucalyptus, white wax flower, dried zinnias, vintage amber and glass medicine bottles, and bugs of all sorts encased in acrylic (my apologies to those that were grossed out at the dinner tables).

Why so much greenery?!

I feel it's only fair for a florist to explain why they might work with so much greenery. Read: are you even a florist?! My reasons might differ from many that are going for the green purely for aesthetic reasons. BUT here are a few:

  • Working with foliage is much more sustainable than solely using blooms. Greens grow faster and are replenished more easily than flowers.
  • I'm able to source many of my greens directly from semi-local farmers in Florida and surrounding areas, as opposed to shipping from Columbia, Ecuador, and the Netherlands, as many traditional wedding blooms are.
  • Let's be real- it saves me money on cooling costs, which translates to saving you money on your order.
  • Greenery seems to be popular with down-to-earth brides, the kind I just love working with.
  • Texture and tone: different types of foliage beautifully bring these elements into play in different designs.
  • It looks natural. My goal is to give you beautiful arrangements and bouquets for your event, but not have them take over the space. Using combinations more readily found in nature is how I like to accent you on your big day! 

I am always up for creating a traditional, flower-filled bouquet, but those greens will forever have my heart. Stay tuned for our full feature on our botanical wedding from last fall and see why!
