This was a smaller pared down COVID version of our couple’s original plans! (Don’t worry, every single guest was tested before the wedding, and not one person tested positive afterwards… we are VERY serious about COVID safety and take no risks).

The bride wanted soft and romantic, with mainly white and greens with elements of taupe, cream, and neutrals. That giant white flower in the front that looks like a peony? A garden rose! And a favorite one at that, from Ella Rose Farm- a local small rose farmer who I use for almost every event (:
For the ceremony, we did two long garlands down the aisle (which were then repurposed for the sweetheart table) and two sizes of arrangements for dimension (also repurposed for the reception)
For the ceremony altar- we kept it simple. Two large candelabras with greenery adorning them.
For the cocktail hour and refreshments table- we did a large installation that I fell in love with! Originally, there was supposed to be a wood sign with their last name on it (and we were going to do flowers surrounding their name) but it didn’t ship in time.
Faced with a big, empty blank wall, we decided to get funky with it. We used leftover flowers to make the installation WAY bigger than it was originally intended to be- and these pillars got brought up to the reception space by the venue.
As always, we love repurposing! That arrangement that sits atop the refreshments table is for the reception- but why not extend it’s usefulness, AND decorate a table at the same time?
We <3 corsages!! The bride had two main bridesmaids (her two sisters), but still wanted her friends to be apart of the ceremony- but wanted her two sisters to have extra. So we made them corsages! They still get flowers, but it’s a cheaper option than standard bouquets.
Just want to reiterate how much I love garden roses! The cream ones are called “Honey Dijon” and the white is “cream abundance”
After setting everything up, sometimes we STILL have leftovers- and I absolute abhor waste- so we’ll use the leftovers in little forgotten spots as intentional design!
For instance, we put floating florals in the couple of fountains for added color, texture, and event cohesion.
Cake flowers are my absolute favorite to design!
Here’s the garland from the ceremony repurposed to the Head Table
There was more garland down the ceremony than Head Table space- so we put the remaining flowers in front of the DJ’s table. Sometimes we’ll decorate the entrance to the reception, on welcome/gift tables, or at the bar.
