Morgan Taylor Wedding

This was one of my ABSOLUTE, MOST FAVORITE weddings EVER!!!  Our bride, Morgan, had a sense of style that was totally different than any other bride that I have ever worked with, which made her wedding so much fun to design.

Morgan and Zach were looking for a very natural and organic look with the flowers for her ceremony and reception. We used lots of succulents, garden roses, dahlias, zennia, peonies, and hypericum berries, campanula, lambs ear, dusty miller, and a small variety of other types of foliage to accent.  

 We wanted to keep it simple, so instead of using tons of different varieties (like you typically see in the "wildflower" style) we used only a few varieties in her color scheme. 
 This beautiful little girl wore a halo of baby's breath and ranunculus.  To stick with the organic theme, we opted not to put ribbons in it so all you see is the natural beauty of the child and the flowers.

   The boutonnieres were awesome!  They had a little bit of quite a few different things in them, but all in neutral colors, so it didn't look to busy. In this one we see lambs ear, grapevine, bear grass, hypericum, succulents, spanish moss, and little bit of twine to tie it all together!

As Seen on The Knot

Kristy Taylor Wedding

The Taylor Wedding took place in downtown Decatur at on the the oldest chapels in the city, First Baptist Church Chapel.  The beautiful bride requested a bouquet of lush white hydrangea and plum dianthus, with a collar of purple wax flower and salal tips, tied with white ribbon.  

Her four lovely bridesmaids carried bouquets of mixed shades of purples in the flowers of tinted purple hydrangeas, plum dianthus, fuschsia purple stock, dark purple stock, purple wax flower, and weeping potocarpus. 

Kristy's altar flowers were a beautiful mix of tinted purple hydrangea, white casa blanca lilies, green hanging amaranthus, white dianthus, purple larkspur, fuschia purple stock, and mixed garden greens

The reception for the newly wed Mr. and Mrs. Crosswhite took place at the Magnolia Room in downtown Decatur.  The entrance doors were decorated with two beautiful wreaths of garden greens, tinted purple hydrangea, lavender roses, and dark purple snap dragons.  

The centerpieces alternated with purple potted hydrangeas and Eiffel tower vases (they did honeymoon in Paris afterall!) with green hanging amaranthus and tinted purple hydrangea

 Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Adam and Kristy Crosswhite!!

The Reception was at Sykes Place and it was AMAZING!  On some tables there were gorgeous arrangements of lilies, roses, and hydrangea that cascaded of funky vases surrounded by tea candles

Other tables had curly willow shooting out of the top surrounded by clusters of the bride's choice flowers and encased by variegated lily grass and surrounded by tea light candles
