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 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

It’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.

We are so digging yellow…why yellow?…because it simply makes you happy. This cheerful hue adds that perfect “pop” of color to every occasion. So, after a recent spring wedding- chalk full of sunshine yellow details- we knew it was time to shine some light on this great color and present a color story all about the sublime bliss of incorporating this festive color . Doesn’t it just make you smile?!
Yellow’s Color Story: Whether it be the main design inspiration or that perfect little pop of color in the details, this bold choice always adds the element of fun to a party. Blissful yellow was the main guest at Jessica & Brandon’s lovely spring wedding…even the sun came out to play. What’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). Don’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. Divine. It’s all in the (yellow) details. Infusing your color story into the first elements your guests sees is just plain old fun, from the invitations to the wedding signs, creating a cohesive look is simply sublime.
…Oh pretty yellow, you’re so not mellow.

We had so such fun working with Hannah and Christian! Hannah wanted a very natural look, she chose to use mason jars and colored vases filled with Stock, Dahlias and Cabbage Roses for the guest tables. Hannah’s bouquet was a combination of Cabbage Roses, Dahlias, Ranunculus and Stock. Her Bridesmaids carried Montecasino wrapped with twine.
Congratulations Christian and Hannah!
