The Delight of Coral and White: A Downtown Wedding

May 14th, 2014

julielivingstonphotography-3736 copySome weddings are too good not to share twice, and this lovely celebration is one of them. Just look at that coral color above —accented by the most charming wooden table number ever— we know you’d sit right down! From our beautiful bride to the final detail of the pale pink monogrammed menu board, this wedding was bursting with color and style. Our beautiful bride, Laura, delivered detail with a gush-worthy punch. Taking the soft, feminine elements of romantic coral and white blooms and accessorizing them with modernly natural textures of wood and burlap. The outcome was as breathtaking and as timeless as our bride and groom were themselves. What really caught our eye? It was Laura’s effortless chic style. That show-stopping hem of her dress was as ruffled as our beloved blooms and the “Mr. & Mrs.” chairs were simply sublime. Blissful. 

DESIGNER’S TIP: A “Pop” of color goes a long way. Look carefully at the picture below, Laura gifted her bridesmaids with turquoise earrings. This is a great example, as is our incorporation of coral in the flowers, that a punch of color can still be subtle for a softer appeal. It’s in how you choose to use the color that will decipher its varying degree of soft  to bold. Enjoy. julielivingstonphotography-4369 copy julielivingstonphotography-4396 copy - Copy julielivingstonphotography-3839 copy julielivingstonphotography-4433 copy - Copyjulielivingstonphotography-3726 copy julielivingstonphotography-3721 copy julielivingstonphotography-3714 copy julielivingstonphotography-4093 copy julielivingstonphotography-3810 copyjulielivingstonphotography-3855 copyjulielivingstonphotography-3715 copyjulielivingstonphotography-3742 copyTALENTED VENDOR ACCOLADES: Photography: Julie Livingston Photography, Event Coordination: Social Butterfly, Venue: 128 South

Crisp & Classic: Navy, Yellow, and White

April 30th, 2014

Brick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCWe fell hard for this May wedding delight! There’s something so appealing about the delightful combination of yellow, navy and white. This color combo is hands down timeless, and consistently delivers a refreshing pop of color that leaves guests smiling. I mean, who doesn’t love a classic stripe on a ribbon accented with a little sparkle? With the bride’s vision of romantic and classic, the bouquet was designed in a clean palette of white and texture galore-incorporating large, lush flowers such as peonies, mums, hydrangea and ranunculus. Yellow was the reigning accent color for the wedding party’s boutonnieres and bouquets. But can you guess what left us smiling from ear to ear? The deliverance of detail of course. Understated, outdoors elegance was the aesthetic for our wood and hydrangea chuppah, as was the groomsmen’s nautical shoe choice and groom’s tie; it perfectly tied the look together!  Did we mention how utterly sweet those flower girls looked in their halos of yellow flowers…love this.

DESIGNER’S TIP: Never forget the little things. Our savvy bride understood that the wedding party’s attire was the perfect accent to classically pull together her overlook look. This is a great tip in how coordinating your wedding party can be just as aesthetically pleasing as setting a great table. Brick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NC

April 9th, 2014

Carr_Smith_Heba_Salama_Photography_carrwedding606_lowSpring has sprung and we thought it was the perfect time to show off our fun loving May bride’s oceanfront bash. Oh, how color set the tone for this festive wedding! Lauren’s main colors were the delightful Caribbean hues of orange and turquoise, accented with splashes of yellow, green, and pink. This eclectic, creative wedding design centered on the couple’s personal elements of pop art meets beach side, exemplified from the innovative alter to Lauren’s distinct broach bouquet…throw in those beach balls and you have one festive party! What was our favorite detail? Lauren’s conscious choice to incorporate her bold pops of color into every last detail. This wedding takes the cake for its design colorfully representing our delightful couple’s personalities. Enjoy!

There is a reason the Juliet cabbage rose is so popular amongst our brides. This fragrant rose has the most exquisite petals, layered in delicate ruffles that exude beauty and romance. Our lovely September bride, Katelyn, tastefully chose this breathtaking rose as the main component to her timeless peach and white bouquet set among varieties of roses, peach hypercium, dusty miller, and rustic texture.  Katelyn and Jeremy’s wedding was a surprise…literally! This lovely couple pulled off what most couples do not dare to try, a surprise wedding for all that attended. With an eye for timeless style and a color palette of peach & mint, it was a pleasure to design our sly and lovely couple’s wedding flowers, from the rustic infused twine details to the antique pink hydrangea centerpieces, this was one celebration worth waiting for!

What was our favorite design detail? You can probably guess by the intro, the beautiful bride’s bouquet. Designed to complement Katelyn’s stunning lace wedding dress, this bouquet takes the cake for timeless romance. Enjoy.bouquet

Enchanting Evergreen: A Southport Winter Wedding

March 5th, 2014

Tim and Mary Margaret-5199This wondrous Southport, NC wedding had us all swooning over our bride’s seasonally chic color choice of emerald green and a wintery mix of white flowers. Gush. Gush. Gush. It’s no wonder Style Me Pretty just had it up  it’s blog! Mary Margaret and Tim said their “I Do’s” just days after Christmas, and even the sun wanted to be a prominent guest at this elegant affair. Hydrangea, peonies, roses, stock, freesia and evergreen were all designed in lush, captivating bouquets to complement the classic style of this beautiful wedding party. “Timeless Appeal” best sums up this lovely wedding’s overall aesthetic, from the lovely couple’s sophisticated attire to the tasteful, understated use of the holiday season’s most beloved color.  Oh, how we loved every tiny bit of this wintery wedding design! What was out favorite design detail? Our beautiful bride’s design vision of mixing a splash of southern charm (magnolia leaves, gardenias and sunshine) with a hint of the season (pops of green) and a whole lot of fragrant white blooms!

Ethereal & Romantic: A Bountiful Garden Deisgn

February 20th, 2014

Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-14 - CopyEthereal. This is the word that always pops into our heads when we see the pictures from our lovely bride, Natalie’s, wedding.  It’s no wonder Style Me Pretty showcased this wildly romantic wedding this past winter (click on link to check it out). With a floral design full of deep coral and blush tones, and a billowy garden look that would make any gardener gush, this wedding takes the cake for whimsical and romantic. Just look below at that marvelous moment captured of this handsome couple walking in the sunlit woods, divine. Natalie’s eye for soft, feminine details were displayed in her wedding party’s delicate chiffon dresses and her floral direction of a “Lush and Natural Garden” aesthetic.  We used bunches (tons) of varying roses, dahlias, anemones, and greens were to perfectly design this lovely bride’s  “Spilling” bouquet. What was our favorite detail? All of it. No joke. We were so taken a back by the utter romance of this wedding design—from the bouquets to the lead arrangements—that to only pick one detail wouldn’t be fair. Natalie’s overall feel was so apparent in her details and design choices we were simply giddy over everything! Enjoy. Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-24Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-22Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-21Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-34Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-11Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-18Natalie and Patrick_Fiore-9 - CopyNatalie and Patrick_Fiore-7 - CopyNatalie and Patrick_Fiore-5 - CopyNatalie and Patrick_Fiore-30VENDOR ACCOLADES: Photographer-Eric Boneske Photography, Wedding Planner Social Butterfly Events, Venue- Brooklyn Arts Center

Sherbet & Sparkle- A Figure 8 Island Wedding

February 5th, 2014

I_0367Don’t you just love a little sparkle in your life? Our ultra-glam bride, Corina, shone bright for her wondrous spring wedding at Figure 8 Island Yacht Club. The bride is a friend of ours, so it’s no wonder we were a bit weepy as this handsome couple exchanged vows. Corina’s vision of a sherbet color story and a clean, romantic aesthetic was a delight  as we selected all of our favorite peach and cream roses we could get our hands on. The bride’s color choice of “faded sherbet” allowed the flowers to pop against her bridesmaids’ coral peach dresses and the bride’s miles of glamorous tulle. Corina and Gordan’s wedding was that perfect mix of romance and sophistication. What was our favorite part? The petal peach wrap adorning a little sparkle. Everything looks better with a little sparkle!

DESIGNER’S TIP: Mixing a subtle, but similar, palette adds an element of depth so each blended color can perfectly ‘pop’. When you incorporate in a variety of complementing colors, all your details shine bright! Corina’s bouquet was a variety sherbet hues which allowed all her stunning details to stand out—such as the bouquet’s ribbon wrap and that drool worthy jewelry.

Eclectic & Enchanting: Mint, Peach and Coral

January 15th, 2014

Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-19 There is nothing that makes us smile more than a happy bride, and sweet Elizabeth had us grinning from ear to ear! The bride’s overall vision matched her personality to a tee (we love this)! With a design request for a wildflower, eclectic look, we focused on incorporating her color palette of pale peach, yellow and mint into varying textured flowers such as billy balls, succulents and fragrant Juliet cabbage roses. The look was as effortlessly lovely and enchanting as the couple themselves. With a nod to the vintage, varying sized bud vases adorned the family style farm tables and vintage lace table runners. With a hint of playfulness, “LOVE” was spelled out in floating gold letter balloons as one of the many sweet accent details. What was our favorite bit of this Wilmington wedding? Um…hello?! Just look below at that flower girl holding Elizabeth’s bouquet! Now there’s a girl who understands you can never have too much tulle when it comes to twirling on a dance floor. Enjoy!

DESIGNER’S TIP: Never shy away from incorporating your color story into your texture. Elizabeth’s accent color, mint, is a perfect example of when a textured plant, such as a succulent, can be the perfect design element for color and texture.Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-24Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-25Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-13Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-18Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-17Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-3Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-5Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-2Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-10Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-31Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-29Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-12Elizabeth and Forrest Eric Boneske Photography-6VENDOR ACCOLADES: Eric Boneske Photography, Planner: Shindig Events

Regal Raspberry: Plums, Purples and Pantone’s Color Choice 2014

January 8th, 2014

caf-219a

Did you hear the (color) news? Radiant Orchid is the official Pantone color of 2014…we couldn’t be more excited! There is something so enticing about the regal hues of purple and plum, combine that with a recent bride who called for this trending palette in her floral design and we were smitten! We’re pretty sure our lovely Bald Head Island bride, Christine, had no idea that her raspberry tones would be hailed the color choice of 2014, but it sure is fun to post her pictures the same week of the press release!

Christine’s bouquet was simply enchanting; blended shades of deep pink, fuschia and purple textured dahlias, roses and callas created a captivating blend of her wedding hues. Her keen eye for the celebration’s finer details, such as the linens and accent arrangements, fashioned a cohesive look to the festive day. What really took the cake? Our bride’s regal shades of raspberry set amongst Bald Head Island’s natural surroundings. Just look at that picture above with the sea grass’ soft wheat and purple/gray tones staging her bouquet- absolutely spectacular!

“A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”-Pantone. We couldn’t agree more, enjoy!

Our Lovely Wedding Designer’s Divine Wedding Day!

December 18th, 2013

chelsea and logan-018It’s time…We have been sitting (literally) on our hands respectively waiting to show off our very beautiful manager, and lead wedding designer’s, wedding! Chelsea married her main man Logan this past June here in Wilmington, and as expected, our lead wedding designer pulled out all the stops. Their sublime wedding was just featured on the wedding blog A Paper Proposal!

Designing Chelsea’s lush, loose bouquets was beyond memorable. Our design floor was buzzing with anticipation and good vibes as Jean crafted a drool-worthy chandelier of soft sherbet blooms and Kristy joyfully designed bouquets in a soft palate of orange, sherbet hues full of voluminous peonies, roses and blooms. Having a keen eye for style and being a florist (of course) our bride wanted her main color choices to come through in the flowers. Chelsea and Logan’s overall design was as inviting and artistic as the couple themselves.

With such creative DIY details and a nod to southern living (muslin packaged shrimp & grits favors, oh my!) this wedding left guests grinning ear to ear all night. And oh goodness, those personal touches…the monogrammed accents, the custom painted signs, and those romantic flowers accented perfectly by the custom chevron runners. Simply gush-worthy details, all mastered by a wedding designer who understands personal is pretty at it’s best. What was our favorite bit? Logan’s boutonnière, made by his bride, we love this!

CHELSEA’S DESIGNER TIP: “Our wedding was an extension of the style we share.” Weddings are a joyful, intimate celebration all about the couple; so showing off what makes you unique is the best design tip we could share. Enjoy all the loveliness below and check out A Paper Proposal for even more eye-candy on this wedding. chelsea and logan-043 chelsea and logan-050 chelsea and logan-007 chelsea and logan-073 chelsea and logan-023chelsea and logan-017 chelsea and logan-015 chelsea and logan-014 chelsea and logan-072 chelsea and logan-071 chelsea and logan-060 chelsea and logan-024chelsea and logan-091chelsea and logan-006VENDOR ACCOLADES: Photography: Jennifer Priddy Photography, Venue:The Atrium, Wedding Planner: Jill White
