Botanical Wedding

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 ;).

I N G R E D I E N T S:
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).

Springtime Bridal Portraits

JPP_6826-2 copy.jpg

A few weeks ago I was asked to design a bridal bouquet and boutonnière for a styled photo shoot at Savannah Rapids, in Augusta, GA. Little did I know, I would be working with a real couple! 

These two lovebirds absolutely worked it, and I'm overjoyed I was able to participate as they recreated their wedding day. I might be biased, but I think there's something so special about couples that can renew their commitment weeks, months, or years after the fact. It was colder down at the river than any of us expected, but you definitely can't tell from looking at these! *insert fire emoji here*

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Ohara & spray roses, anemones, wax flower, gunny eucalyptus, bear grass, and dusty miller & snapdragons from my garden. I loveee adding in home-grown elements!

"Into the Woods" Styled Shoot

styleds-1068.jpg

Last month the Honeycomb team trudged into Hitchcock Woods in Aiken, SC for an afternoon of styling with Dailey Alexandra Photography and Baked by Lex. We ran around in the mud (aka horse poop) for about 3 hours while Dailey brought my floral designs to life with her gorgeous photography. Shoutout to Alexis for running around barefoot in that as our model, and to all the equestrians we confused with our 'pop up wedding' in the middle of their trails.

This day was one for the books. Whose idea was it to fashion a real-wood arch, sweetheart table and its fixings, bouquets and arrangements and lug all the supplies about a mile into the woods? Certainly not I........... (sarcasm goes here). I am oh-so-thankful my husband knocked some sense into me and talked me out of carrying our 6-seater pine dining table back there! Although that might have been selfishly motivated on his part.... hmm. Moving on.

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Sahara & spray roses, curly willow, bupleurum, brunia, scabiosa pods, dried yarrow, ruscus, wax flower, and alllll the eucalyptus you can think of (silver dollar, willow, gunny, & seeded eucs) 

C R E D I T S:
Florals & Arbor: Honeycomb Florals (that's us!)
Photography: Dailey Alexandra Photography
Cake & Bride: Baked by Lex
Moral Support: Our dear hubs that helped wherever needed. I'm sure it was just what they wanted to do ;)
