Psst…we have a (not so secret) design tool we rely on when meeting with perspective brides and talking colors…The Perfect Palette blog. This popular blog is a fave in the shop because the easy to well styled inspiration boards, categorized by a mecca of color combos, are all perfectly designed to help brides and grooms easily envision their ‘perfect palette’. We love this blog! So, when we saw our watercolor inspired style shoot as a feature color combo last week, we nearly flipped.
Our floral inspiration came from our coastal love of watercolors and its delicate method of blending color. This was the perfect design element for showcasing sunset hued roses and hydrangea ‘bleeding’ into the next shade subtly. Our bride’s appreciation for art and all things modern was displayed in our furniture choice of lucite and lacquer. Tied together with feminine touches seen in the tablecloth, mirrored accent pieces and white vintage frames. Our lovely bride’s bouquet and headpiece was designed to exude her assurance and love of bold color. Bleeding hues of sherbet to bold pops of fuchsia were designed to complement her confidence. Bright, distinct texture galore. The main elements were to show our hostess’ eye for detail and appreciation for the unexpected. The flowers were all designed in sunset hues, blending subtly into the next sunset shade. The lucite stools, white lacquer furniture and that show stopping mirrored bar, all from Pomp, were selected to complement our overall design in a way of ‘reflecting’ its surroundings and to sleekly showcase the blossoms’ colors like art on display. And of course, the cocktails and watercolor guest gifts were also set in our signature party colors. But…One Belle Bakery’s cake was a centerpiece in itself! Taking the theme of watercolor, femininity and art and creating a mini masterpiece we dared not slice. They painted the cake?! Swoon.
From the setting on that breathtaking patio, to the great vendors on board, this shoot was everything we had hoped for and more. Oh my, how we love our job as floral designers!

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!

October 8, 2011 – Balcony on Dock
The Balcony on Dock provided the perfect setting for JoAnn and Jay’s fall wedding. The brightly colored dahlia’s combined with an eclectic mix of bottles and lanterns complimented the exposed brick. The flower girls carried moss covered baskets filled with bright colored roses.
Congratulations to JoAnn and Jay!
