We 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.

There is a reason the Juliet cabbage rose is so popular amongst our brides. This fragrant rose has the most exquisite petals, layered in delicate ruffles that exude beauty and romance. Our lovely September bride, Katelyn, tastefully chose this breathtaking rose as the main component to her timeless peach and white bouquet set among varieties of roses, peach hypercium, dusty miller, and rustic texture. Katelyn and Jeremy’s wedding was a surprise…literally! This lovely couple pulled off what most couples do not dare to try, a surprise wedding for all that attended. With an eye for timeless style and a color palette of peach & mint, it was a pleasure to design our sly and lovely couple’s wedding flowers, from the rustic infused twine details to the antique pink hydrangea centerpieces, this was one celebration worth waiting for!
What was our favorite design detail? You can probably guess by the intro, the beautiful bride’s bouquet. Designed to complement Katelyn’s stunning lace wedding dress, this bouquet takes the cake for timeless romance. Enjoy.

This wondrous Southport, NC wedding had us all swooning over our bride’s seasonally chic color choice of emerald green and a wintery mix of white flowers. Gush. Gush. Gush. It’s no wonder Style Me Pretty just had it up it’s blog! Mary Margaret and Tim said their “I Do’s” just days after Christmas, and even the sun wanted to be a prominent guest at this elegant affair. Hydrangea, peonies, roses, stock, freesia and evergreen were all designed in lush, captivating bouquets to complement the classic style of this beautiful wedding party. “Timeless Appeal” best sums up this lovely wedding’s overall aesthetic, from the lovely couple’s sophisticated attire to the tasteful, understated use of the holiday season’s most beloved color. Oh, how we loved every tiny bit of this wintery wedding design! What was out favorite design detail? Our beautiful bride’s design vision of mixing a splash of southern charm (magnolia leaves, gardenias and sunshine) with a hint of the season (pops of green) and a whole lot of fragrant white blooms! Enjoy. VVENDOR ACCOLADES: Photography by Katelyn James Photography

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.VENDOR ACCOLADES: Eric Boneske Photography, Planner: Shindig Events
We’re a sucker for a man in a uniform; place him next to his glowing bride and bring on the tissues! Sarah and Dana’s fall 2012 wedding was one of timeless elegance and crisp, white details. The bride’s vision of a clean, sleek look was complementary to the couple themselves (literally, just look at them). Sarah’s round bouquet was bursting with a variety of roses and white ranunculus, as her bridesmaids carried white callas. The bride’s vision for ‘sleek’ was exemplified in the monochromatic white floral designs at her reception at the Country Club of Landfall. Understanding Sarah’s vision, and adding a touch of modern, we had a blast showcasing some of our most beloved flowers in glass vases to keep the room open and the look crisp. What was out favorite detail? Allowing each stunning, sophisticated flower to stand alone on display. This design detail allowed all the other design elements to ‘pop’ per say; just look at those chevron menu cards and those orchids…Simply Divine.
DESIGNER’S TIP: There’s nothing bland about white. Sarah’s wedding is a true example of creating a design to match the ‘feel’ of the party. We were able to keep the room airy and sleek by designing a monochromatic look and using varying glass vases for guests to see through. Her generous eye for detail (shown in the chargers, etc.) allowed her monochromatic vision to be a timeless showstopper. Essentially, we love a good design adjective.
