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

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!

Nothing is more attractive than a well-dressed man (nothing).  Throw in a boutonniere and we’re left swooning.  In a brides’ world, we thought it was time to shine some light on their handsome other half and show off some great options from rustic & rugged to dapper & distinct. Enjoy this Wedding Wednesday post all about the groom! Swoon. Swoon.

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

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

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

Vibrant & Tropical: A Waterfront Wedding

December 4th, 2013

kourtney and jay-012Who needs to travel to the Caribbean for a wedding when you live in Wilmington?! Our September bride’s vivid blooms and picturesque waterfront wedding reminded us of a beach getaway somewhere warm and tropical. With an overall look of beach chic, and texture galore, our design team couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear as each lush and colorful bloom was cheerfully fastened into this design. Just look at that arbor! Filled to the brim with hydrangea, roses, orchids, and lilies, it was the perfect backdrop for this adorable couple’s nuptials. Kourtney and Jay’s sunset color palette was a magnificent choice amongst the blue hues of the intracoastal waterway. What was our favorite part? Hmm…it’s a toss-up between those swoon-worthy orange dahlias’ in Kourtney’s bouquet and this lovely couple’s infectious smiles. It’s a definite tie (wink). No matter what, we knew this wedding was perfect to brighten up your day!

Fiore’s Ideas for a Blooming Mother’s Day

May 8th, 2013

blog3Calling all mamas...Mother’s day is this weekend and we love celebrating mom! So as a mom, I knew it was the perfect time to share some simple, stylish ideas that my fellow mothers would appreciate. See the bouquet above? It’s what I call ‘Pink Peonie Perfection’, this flower is stunning, strong and enchanting. So, it is no wonder why I feel it is a direct reflection of moms everywhere. Peonies are delicate but never frail, they compliment any fellow flower but can also stand stunning alone, and they are utterly endearing. Check out these ideas below and become inspired, there’s something for everyone…and remember, we’re always here to help. Enjoy!

1.) Simple & Sweet: Never negate how far a bit of color and pretty paper can take you, a simple bloom wrapped easily in a band of colorful, patterned paper makes for the most delightful presentation. decor8blog2.) Why, hello gorgeous. This astounding amount of tulips (just a few bushels), set in one color palette and a galvanized water bucket, makes anyone mom wish to stay home and host all day long!3a129da23a7a8bdc594be9aa0e93dc5d3.)Cheerfully Dressed: Let mom wake up to color and whimsy with a band of ribbons cascading down a door. This is a great project for the pint size crew! And a fabulous surprise for mom. a9e0f2b656196b300d6c9e47a8c916644.) Garden Chic: Texture and abundance is key here, we love this birch vase (we use them a lot) full of all the wonder of a garden. And green thumb mama would swoon over this. poppytalk5.) A Card As Big As Mom’s Heart: So simple and enadearing! Take any color poster board, string (or ribbon) and let the kiddos have at it. Homemade can still come out chic if the design has structure. c15735fa37edd93e5e6a16caf2111a646.) Cones + Carnations = Charm: Yes, we said it…carnations. This flowers doesn’t get much love, but as designers we know that a bushel of this very textured flower is brilliant for adding a bit of easy charm to decorative accents. These easy-to-make paper cones are a perfect example of thinking outside the box. appetitespoiler.blogspot7.) Lastly… Nothing is a better treat than a Tussie Mussie (petite bouquet) of brilliant blooms for mom. How special would it be for her to receive a mini version of this bouquet we made below?fioreThere’s still time to create something special for mom, hopefully these ideas will inspire you a bit. We’re busy on the design floor building, creating and constructing some mighty pretty arrangement all in the name of (Mom) love if you need some help!

Happiest Mother’s Day wishes to all the lovely moms everywhere.

Christian + Hannah: Color & Whimsy

September 26th, 2012

August 10, 2012 – Wilmington NC

We had so such fun working with Hannah and Christian! Hannah wanted a very natural look, she chose to use mason jars and colored vases filled with Stock, Dahlias and Cabbage Roses for the guest tables. Hannah’s bouquet was a combination of Cabbage Roses, Dahlias, Ranunculus and Stock. Her Bridesmaids carried Montecasino wrapped with twine.

Congratulations Christian and Hannah!

A special thanks to Eric Boneske Photography, Social Butterfly Events and The Brooklyn Arts Center!
