A Well Dressed Man: Color and Boutonnieres

April 2nd, 2014

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.

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!

Styled Shoot: An Artist’s Watercolor Wedding

November 6th, 2013

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. wilmington wedding photoswilmington wedding photosOur 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.wilmington wedding photos wilmington wedding photos 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.

It truly was a sweet day in May for this gorgeous couple.  After our first meeting with the bride and her mother, we had a hunch that this soiree would be picture perfect down to the smallest of details.  Fortunately for us, Chris Lang Photography brilliantly captured the eclectic mix of vintage and southern style from the bride’s stunning bouquet to the playful array of flowers and containers atop those extra long guest tables.

Congratulations to Jennifer and Mitchell!
