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

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

Our Lovely Wedding Designer’s Divine Wedding Day!

December 18th, 2013

chelsea and logan-018It’s time…We have been sitting (literally) on our hands respectively waiting to show off our very beautiful manager, and lead wedding designer’s, wedding! Chelsea married her main man Logan this past June here in Wilmington, and as expected, our lead wedding designer pulled out all the stops. Their sublime wedding was just featured on the wedding blog A Paper Proposal!

Designing Chelsea’s lush, loose bouquets was beyond memorable. Our design floor was buzzing with anticipation and good vibes as Jean crafted a drool-worthy chandelier of soft sherbet blooms and Kristy joyfully designed bouquets in a soft palate of orange, sherbet hues full of voluminous peonies, roses and blooms. Having a keen eye for style and being a florist (of course) our bride wanted her main color choices to come through in the flowers. Chelsea and Logan’s overall design was as inviting and artistic as the couple themselves.

With such creative DIY details and a nod to southern living (muslin packaged shrimp & grits favors, oh my!) this wedding left guests grinning ear to ear all night. And oh goodness, those personal touches…the monogrammed accents, the custom painted signs, and those romantic flowers accented perfectly by the custom chevron runners. Simply gush-worthy details, all mastered by a wedding designer who understands personal is pretty at it’s best. What was our favorite bit? Logan’s boutonnière, made by his bride, we love this!

CHELSEA’S DESIGNER TIP: “Our wedding was an extension of the style we share.” Weddings are a joyful, intimate celebration all about the couple; so showing off what makes you unique is the best design tip we could share. Enjoy all the loveliness below and check out A Paper Proposal for even more eye-candy on this wedding. chelsea and logan-043 chelsea and logan-050 chelsea and logan-007 chelsea and logan-073 chelsea and logan-023chelsea and logan-017 chelsea and logan-015 chelsea and logan-014 chelsea and logan-072 chelsea and logan-071 chelsea and logan-060 chelsea and logan-024chelsea and logan-091chelsea and logan-006VENDOR ACCOLADES: Photography: Jennifer Priddy Photography, Venue:The Atrium, Wedding Planner: Jill White

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!

Wedding Color Story: Yellow & Gray

July 10th, 2013

0498IMG_0416_arianajuan_amanda - CopyWhen we received the images on today’s color story, we literally flipped! Nothing is more playful (and sophisticated) than a wedding showcasing the couple’s personalities and cohesively tying in a custom color scheme…it just makes a party pop! Ariana and Juan’s design concept was as distinct as was this lovely couple. -Unique and modern, with a hint of vintage.

With a modernly refreshing color story of Mustard Yellow & Gray, our design team had a blast creating eclectic, textured filled floral designs to complement the bride’s details.  Ariana and Juan get a round of applause for their whimsical paper details and smart mix of linens.  I think the most fun was creating the custom baseball boutonniere for the groom (and yes, we used a baseball). This wedding needed its day in the sun, I mean look at that cake! We’re lucky to be surrounded by local vendors as talented as our brides and grooms are stylish.

Designer’s Tip: Creating a cohesive color scheme allows you make your party a showstopper without having to go overboard in abundance. It’s a little known trick of the trade, cohesive color details tie everything perfectly together.  0394IMG_0442_arianajuan_amanda0489IMG_8811_arianajuan_brent - Copy0496IMG_0397_arianajuan_amanda - Copy0460IMG_9769_arianajuan_amanda0458IMG_9767_arianajuan_amanda0454IMG_8662_arianajuan_brent0471IMG_9784_arianajuan_amanda0384IMG_0386_arianajuan_amanda

0052We are so digging yellow…why yellow?…because it simply makes you happy.

Doesn’t it just make you smile?!

Blissful yellow was the main guest at Jessica & Brandon’s lovely spring wedding…even the sun came out to play. 00530036What’s the best thing about picking a color story? Remembering that your choice color comes in many, many great shades to choose from. We’re drooling over this trending Ombre style cake ranging from a soft shade of white to a buttery yellow hue. It’s so pretty, we wouldn’t even be tempted to eat it (maybe).  stylemepretty.comDon’t you just love when you get an “eye full” of the unexpected? Whether it be the bride & groom or one very sharp-looking wedding party, we’re giddy over adding a touch of playful flair to a bold statement color like yellow. Divine. Divine.
