Bright Summer Wedding

reddish-1195.jpg

This wedding was a joy to create. I get a lot of requests for ivory and green wedding flowers, so I welcomed the change of color palette. I also wondered how the bride found me! Her requests were to use flowers that have a lot of petals (garden roses and peonies, hellllllooo!) in varying shades of pink, with a rustic but classic feel to them (cue the burlap wrap and eucalyptus).

As always, the vendors are listed below from this colorful Enterprise Mill wedding. Hope the flowers make you smile when you see them like they did to me!

Southern Plantation Wedding

IMG_9810.jpg

Being able to work at such uniquely southern venues has been an unexpected perk of this job. I grew up in southern California so every time we roll up to a traditional plantation home, I get all googly-eyed at the sight of it.

Quinney Oaks Plantation didn’t need much as far as floral accents go. It was cleanly overgrown with English ivy and Spanish moss hung from the grandiose oak trees. Our bride was all about textural elements so we focused on bringing those into the bouquets and simple bud vase centerpieces using thistle, brunia berries, and Queen Anne’s lace.

The highlight for me, design-wise, was a massive pergola that the bride and groom were married on. Y’all (I can say that now, right??), we used a total of 32 feet of garland on that baby! Shoutout to my work husband/real husband that climbed atop and was perched like a freakin’ gargoyle tying it to the border, while my mom and I alternated holding my little one as it was drizzling on and off most of the morning (because why wouldn’t it be?).

The end result was a beautifully modern take on a traditional wedding scene. Scroll through to see the work we put in on this one.

I N G R E D I E N T S

Escimo + vendela roses, ivory spray roses, white ranunculus and hydrangea, disbud mums, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus, variegated pittosporum, Italian ruscus, Queen Anne’s lace, gypsophila, dusty miller, brunia, and blue dynamite eryngium (thistle!).

A Rustic Spring Wedding

byrd-1020.jpg

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This wedding was so fun to work on! I met Holly and Jamie over a year prior to their wedding date at My Unreal Wedding Expo in 2018, and soon after we sat down to talk over their wedding vision in its entirety. They worked so hard to make their wedding unique and personal.

They had handmade lanterns stained to match their wedding entrance and arbor, honey from the groom’s father’s bees as wedding favors, and a plethora of goodies they collected and customized in the months leading up to the big day. It was an honor to help bring Holly’s vision to life with flowers, foliage, and other accents like the feathers and cotton you’ll see throughout.

I N G R E D I E N T S

Vendela roses, ivory spray roses, white hydrangea, sword and leather leaf ferns, silver dollar eucalyptus, myrtle, pittosporum, pom daisies, scabiosa pods, gypsophelia/babies breath, pheasant, duck, and turkey feathers, antlers, a skull, cotton stems, burlap, and twine.

Peachy-keen Winter Wedding

Rachel + Ben Wedding 2019 (Honeycomb Gallery)-0007.jpg

This beautiful couple kicked of my 2019 wedding season and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Rachel was a dream to work with and I loved all of her ideas for her color palette and decor. We were even able to add accents from both her and her husband’s grandmothers onto the stem of her bouquet. I LOVE adding personal touches like that on wedding day!

White peonies, elegance peach, orange, and white ranunculus, vendela roses, blushing majolika and white spray roses, silver dollar eucalyptus, salal leaf, olive branches, gypsophila/babies breath and Italian ruscus.
