Airlie Gardens Wedding ~ Wilmington NC

March 13th, 2016

Airlie Gardens was the perfect setting for this modern chic fall wedding. One of our favorite details was the head table inspired by Vincent an Gogh’s  Starry Night. Ayla’s bouquet was a combination of white  hydrangea,  garden roses and beautiful anemones.  Not even a rain storm could damper this beautiful Wilmington NC wedding.

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

A Colorful Celebration: Orange & Turquoise

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!

Beachfront Hues Navy & Green: A Blissful Bash

November 20th, 2013

9605004458-R1-E003This handsome couple made our day, kicking off our summer 2013 season with a wedding located right where we all love to be…the beach! They also were just featured on the blog Equally Wed, a great feature all about their coastal wedding.

Michael & Kyle knew exactly how to complement their breathtaking beach surroundings, incorporating a contemporary twist to the classic colors of navy and green. Their vision was to create an overall look that was as natural as their coastal setting, as well as infuse a modern element for style. And oh boy, did we love designing this wedding! Coastal classic met contemporary seamlessly with voluminous bridesmaids’ bouquets full of lush textures, pops of green viburnum, and the unexpected texture of succulents. They were perfect for those divine midnight blue dresses the bridesmaids donned. Inside the ballroom tall cylinders with willow swirled about, accented by low mirrored cubes of white hydrangea to create a clean but dramatic look.

What was out favorite bit of this wedding? The Grooms’ boutonnieres. Styled to complement this handsome couple’s tailored suits and a nod to southern living, a gardenia boutonniere and a sage & cotton boutonniere were both as sophisticated as the couple were themselves. Congratulations Michael & Kyle!

DESIGNER’S TIP: To envision a clean, cohesive design doesn’t mean it can’t be a show stopper. E.g. You don’t need to add all the trimmings in the box to be fantastic. This couple’s wedding flowers stood out just as much as their quality threads did (literally). Their color scheme and the complementing designs allowed every detail to ‘pop!’-from their setting, to their wedding party’s attire, to their nautical cake. It all seamlessly tied together!

The Classic Hues Of White & Blue

October 23rd, 2013

Wilmington NC wedding photosClassic never goes out of style. N-e-v-e-r. Especially when a beautiful bride chooses an assortment of lush, fragrant white peonies, ranunculus and freesia, all accented delicately with a touch of green and bit of blue. Our lovely bride, Sarah, wanted a traditional, classic design to complement the couple’s style and the timeless appeal of the Landfall Country Club. The bridesmaids’ delicate blue dresses were a great inspiration for a romantic design of garden fresh, bountiful blossoms. Voluminous peonies were the perfect flower for this enchanting wedding. Sarah’s classic style was representative across the (party) board, from her beautiful dress and pearls to that jaw dropping china blue cake. This summer wedding was simply delightful. What did we notice most? The church doors and that elegant cake of course. You know we’re all about the details, and dressing the doors in classic, lush hydrangea wreaths was the best “Welcome” around. And that cake, where do we begin? Tall, china blue, scrolled filigree…stupendous!Wilmington NC wedding photos Wilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosWilmington NC wedding photosTALENTED VENDOR ACCOLADES: Photography: KMI Photography, Venue:Landfall Country Club

English Garden Hues: Blues, Whites and Pinks

May 29th, 2013

0041.Stephanie + KellyStephanie and Kelly’s fall 2012 wedding was all about the details and incorporating the couple’s personality into their big day. What a delight it was to design for a couple that was playful enough to incorporate their signature margarita drink into glass beakers that represented their passion for science. Now, that’s detail! With Stephanie’s vision of blue incorporated into a lush, delicate design we had a blast complimenting all the details of the coordinating aesthetics all about the party. Soft pastels and lush arrangements presented an elegant appeal.  A strikingly large moss arch, fastened in white hydrangea, served a dual purpose for the ceremony and the reception. Oh, do we love when our brides add statement pieces to their design! The overall look resembled an English garden complimented by personal details and delightful color coordination. What a delight! 0042.Stephanie + KellySONY DSCSONY DSC0028.Stephanie + Kelly0013.Stephanie + Kelly0044.Stephanie + KellySONY DSC0025.Stephanie + KellyDesigner’s Tip: 1.) See the arch above? A visual statement piece like this is a smart way to draw the eye away from which you wish something not to be seen and draw it to something you love.   2.) Oh, those hydrangeas! This pretty, lush bloom is a designer’s dream when you wish to “fill” space in a delicate way.

Hues of Coastal Blues: Figure 8

April 4th, 2013

September 15, 2012 – Brianna + Brian, Figure 8 Island NC

There is nothing more delightful than a lovely mix of blue hues offset by the complimenting contrast of white. Brianna and Brian “Tied the Knot” at Figure 8 Yacht Club with a crisp and classic aesthetic that left us pining to stay a wee bit longer and dance the night away.  Brianna’s vision for incorporating a coastal, natural design was the perfect inspiration for her venue’s understated elegance and her nautical inspired details. From Brian’s seersucker suit, to the to-die-for monogrammed cake, to Brianna’s sumptuous bouquet, this wedding was simply breathtaking!

Allison + Aaron: Outdoor Fresh

August 1st, 2012

October 22, 2011 – Supply NC

Allison and Arron left the hustle and bustle of New York City for a down home Coastal Carolina wedding. Being a professional chef Allison wanted herbs used throughout the arrangements in stead of traditional greenery.  Allison’s bouquet was made of Stephanotis, Orchids, Calla Lilies, Thyme, Sage and Mint. Wood bark wrapped vases filled with Hydrangea, Cornflower, Thistle, Blue Stock, Queen Anne’s Lace and Herbs were used as centerpieces.

Congratulations Allison & Aaron!
