August 6th, 2014

0064 Katie and Josh Theo Milo PhotoDo you believe in love at first sight? When it comes to flowers, we do. Oh, the ongoing love affair of the Peony; this bloom is captured (24-7) on instagram feeds, magazine covers, and anywhere this flower blossoms. It clearly is a “true lady” amongst it’s fellow flowers; elegant, fragrant, and always welcome to a party. Combine this stunning bloom with a variety of roses, hydrangeas and coral ranunculus and you have one of our favorite bouquets of the new 2014 season! This lovely bouquet was the stylish vision of a beautiful bride’s love of lush blooms and a pop of color…we couldn’t have agreed more! We were so inspired, we squeezed in every delicate flower possible to create that perfect ‘sigh-worthy’ moment for our bride.

As for those peonies...whether in the bouquet or sitting pretty on the cake…this ruffled bloom was ready to party.

A Figure 8 Island Style Shoot: Vintage & Romantic

June 11th, 2014

0033 Figure 8 Styled Shoot Theo Milo Photo

Working with a range of talented wedding professionals in Wilmington, North Carolina is one of the many lovely perks about being a floral designer; setting up a style shoot at the breathtaking Figure 8 Island Yacht club is just a pretty bonus! This vintage inspired—wildly romantic—intimate wedding shoot was as lovely as it was inspiring. Theo Milo Photography captured all the fine details of the day. Soft, pale shades of pink and yellow roses, tulips, and ranunculus were our main floral inspiration, all romantically set in heirloom china on vintage linens. This shoot was representative of how sweet and timeless can still be breathtaking and lovely.

Our Design Tip of the week: Make use of the unexpected while creating flowers. Look at that gold-rimmed china serving bowl, piled perfectly with fresh blooms…a centerpiece doesn’t always have to be in only a certain container or vase, sometimes the best design details come from using a little imagination. Enjoy.

Crisp & Classic: Navy, Yellow, and White

April 30th, 2014

Brick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCWe 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. Brick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NCBrick Landing wedding photos Ocean Isle NC

March 19th, 2014

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.bouquet

March 5th, 2014

Tim and Mary Margaret-5199This 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!

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!

Sherbet & Sparkle- A Figure 8 Island Wedding

February 5th, 2014

I_0367Don’t you just love a little sparkle in your life? Our ultra-glam bride, Corina, shone bright for her wondrous spring wedding at Figure 8 Island Yacht Club. The bride is a friend of ours, so it’s no wonder we were a bit weepy as this handsome couple exchanged vows. Corina’s vision of a sherbet color story and a clean, romantic aesthetic was a delight  as we selected all of our favorite peach and cream roses we could get our hands on. The bride’s color choice of “faded sherbet” allowed the flowers to pop against her bridesmaids’ coral peach dresses and the bride’s miles of glamorous tulle. Corina and Gordan’s wedding was that perfect mix of romance and sophistication. What was our favorite part? The petal peach wrap adorning a little sparkle. Everything looks better with a little sparkle!

DESIGNER’S TIP: Mixing a subtle, but similar, palette adds an element of depth so each blended color can perfectly ‘pop’. When you incorporate in a variety of complementing colors, all your details shine bright! Corina’s bouquet was a variety sherbet hues which allowed all her stunning details to stand out—such as the bouquet’s ribbon wrap and that drool worthy jewelry.

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

Crisp & Sleek: An Elegant White Wedding

December 11th, 2013

I_0651We’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.
