FALL in love: Green & Purple Seasonal Hues

November 13th, 2013

20131005_mcknight_0178Look at all this seasonal loveliness! We just can’t get enough of this fall bouquet from our lovely October bride, Catherine. Look at all that texture and subtlety in the altering shades of green. Catherine’s design vision of elegant, simple and harvesty left us giddy over the fact that this wedding would show why we love fall celebrations! Texture. Texture. Texture. Our elegant bride’s dress was the perfect contrast to our seasonal bouquet, it left this unexpected appeal of nature matched with sophistication (we loved it!) With the seasonal chic color choices of deep purples and a mix of greens, all of our favorite fall flowers came to the party, from purple kale (yes, we said kale), to hydrangea, to calla lilies, lavender stock and succulents. All these alluring fall flowers were designed to elegantly bring the outdoors in! The bridesmaids’ eggplant dresses were a great inspiration for autumn filled kale & hydrangea bouquets, as was the elegant satin tablecloths that were the perfect detail to juxtapose our harvest filled centerpieces. This wedding was simply sublime. Enjoy!

Succulents and a Southern, Soft Palette

August 20th, 2013

Gwyn and Mike-15Sometimes the best part of designing wedding flowers is seeing all the wonderful moments of our couples’ big day captured on film. Gwyn & Mike’s wedding was just that type of moment, full of Southern charm and loads of personality. Gwyn’s sea-foam green/gray hued bridesmaids’ dresses allowed us to infuse the subtle pop of peachy pinks into a palette of creams and a mecca of textured greens. The fabulous element (and texture) of succulents was the perfect match for our bride’s romantic, natural aesthetic. Not to mention, the tiny detail of twine around the boutonnieres to compliment the burlap bouquet wrap. We love when we get to play. FYI- We can’t get enough of the bridal party shot above “just hanging” on a live oak tree…southern charm at it’s best.

DESIGNER’S TIP: Never shy away from the juxtaposition of two opposite textures or feels. There is a creative delight when you complete a look that infuses a visual surprise. Example: the succulents mixed with the large, peach cabbage rose.

Southern Wedding Romance: Soft Pinks & Crisp Whites

June 12th, 2013

0261_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo“Simply lovely,” This was our motto about Meagan and Matt’s May Wilmington wedding. We just adored how this pretty bride’s design was tied into all the tiny details from the pale pink & sage paper accents, to the natural table numbers and birch containers, to that dreamy chiffon dress.  With Meagan’s floral design adjectives of ‘southern, natural and romantic,’ we had a blast creatively incorporating baby’s breath into bridesmaids’ bouquets, infusing Spanish moss for a bit of the south and playing with an array of the soft hues and lush textures of the gush-worthy peony and cabbage rose. This Wilmington wedding provided a perfect example of how breathtaking can also be sweet and natural…Oh, this truly was a simply lovely wedding. ** Designer’s Tip: Never shy away from the unexpected! The subtle use of succulents in this floral design added the perfect complement to the natural wooden details and the delight of the unexpected.  0061_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0245_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0542_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0060_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0513_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0503_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0525_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0543_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_Photo0498_Meagan_and_Matt_Theo_Milo_PhotoVENDOR ACCOLADES: Photo Credit: Theo Milo Photography, Planner: Social Butterfly Events, Venues: ceremony at Airlie Gardens and reception at 128 South

We love making unique bouquets for our lovely brides!  The following are just a few of our favorites.

Whitney + Steve : 128 South

March 9th, 2012

October 23, 2011 – 128 South

128 South provided the perfect setting for Whitney and Steve’s vintage wedding.  Whitney was looking for a vintage farmer’s market look.  We loved her very unique bouquet, she chose herbs, berries and chocolate cosmos.  Sunflowers and billy balls in mason jars and vintage vases completed her look.

A special thanks to Theo Milo Photography, 128 South and A Shindig Events.
