Camille and Sam – Elegant Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel

22flora-nova-design-elegant-wedding-four-seasons

Camille and Sam had such a soft romantic wedding at the Four Seasons Seattle last December! We love designing classic weddings like this in a palette of creams and blush, with ruffles, sparkle and tons of candlelight! It is truly a timeless look. And their wedding got even more magical with spirit of the season.

Camille and Sam married almost a year ago, during the holiday season: It is almost time for their first anniversary! Congratulations, you two!

To set the mood for this beautiful wedding we lined the staircase with candles to usher all the guests up to the ballroom. All the arrangements were kept simple and effortless in style but received a splash of drama from the gold and sparkly accents. Can we just talk about that MIRRORED HEAD TABLE?!! Super glamorous, especially paired with ghost chairs. A perfect place for Camille, Sam and their bridal party to sit and enjoy this lovely wedding. And what a great choice to fully drape the walls of the ballroom in delicate sheer fabric! In combination with the soft uplighting it created the perfect atmosphere for this beautiful winter wedding.

It was a pleasure to finally be working with Travis from True Colors Events again! And the photos by the ever so wonderful team of O’Malley Photographers are to die for. Rentals by Pedersen’s Event Rentals, linens by BBJ Linens, mirrored tables by Sal Floral, lighting by GreenLight Events.

Elle and Colby – A Romantic Winter Wedding

Elle and Colby’s Sodo Park wedding this past January was a super romantic affair featuring lots (and LOTS) of ferns, mosses, garlands, and greenery. I mean, just look at their ceremony aisle covered in greens and the large wreath above the reception tables!! Just wow!

Elle and her mom – in collaboration with the ever so awesome Holly-Kate Foss – were a pleasure to work with: though Elle’s mom was a little hesitant with Elle’s vision, she was quickly convinced. Even with minimal flowers you can create stunning bouquets and centerpieces and create a very warm and inviting atmosphere.

I received the sweetest card from Elle’s mom which puts it all into words perfectly: “Kent and I are still in the clouds after Elle and Colby’s breathtaking wedding. It truly was exquisite and had your magic fingerprints all over it. The bouquets, the church aisle candles + greenery, and the reception!!! Absolutely a stunning, elegant evening! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

It is for sweet notes like this, that make all the hard work pay off.

Elissa and Upshur – Stunning Chihuly Glasshouse Wedding

12Flora-Nova-Design-Luxe-Chihuly-Seattle-wedding

I am so very excited to finally blog about this beautiful and amazing wedding of Elissa and Upshur! When you look at the stunning images by Barbie Hull Photography you’ll understand why. This wedding will be remembered here as one with the sweetest couple, the most impeccable style, at one of the most beautiful venues in town, and with an A list vendor team led by the ever so amazing team of Sprinkled In Seattle. As a designer what more can you want from a dream job!

In the many planning meetings with Elissa and her mom Donna it soon became clear that this spring wedding at the Chihuly Garden and Glass would be simply stunning. I loved Elissa’s style: modern elegance of clean lines paired with organic floral and greens. The designs with an abundance of local tulips and poppies were a perfect fit for the Chihuly Glasshouse and complimented the ceiling art beautifully.

One of my favorite elements of this wedding was the custom designed clear lucite arch: it created an affect that made the flowers on top appear to float … So dreamy! But now, enjoy all the details …

Hallie and David

I can’t believe it’s been a year since those two lovebirds tied the knot at Suncadia Resort last Labor Day weekend. Happy Anniversary, Hallie and David!!

I loved working with these two! Ever since our first meeting, many months before their wedding day, I knew these two were made for each other. They are the most loving, warm, gentle-hearted people you will ever meet.

 

I was excited to hear they were planning their wedding at beautiful Suncadia Resort – a two hour drive east from Seattle just across the Cascade mountains. This gorgeous destination venue offers stunning mountainous backdrops – perfect for an outside wedding. The beautiful images by The Popes Photography give a glimpse of their perfect day, flawlessly planned and coordinated by Prive Events.

Christine and Mark – A Unique Wedding at the Seattle Aquarium

Beautiful Seattle Aquarium Wedding

Happy First Anniversary, Christine and Mark!! A little over a year ago this super-awesome couple celebrated their beautiful and unique wedding at the Seattle Aquarium. Christine was the dream bride and a dream client – I surely miss our meetings together in which we planned, laughed, created, and came up with so many lovely details. We incorporated elements like succulents and fern curls to create an event that feels very northwest but with unexpected touches of luxurious orchids.  The chartreuse and purple floral color palate with lots of gold accents was so sharp and so fun!

We custom built her wedding arch and adorned it with silk, lots of greenery, and purple flowers. And we were in love with the long guest tables decorated with elevated and low centerpieces and tons of candles! And how unique is that ice curtain as divider between lounge and dinner reception?! And those little succulents for guest favors?!

Christine didn’t shy away from texture, unusual floral elements, and unique flowers. We incorporated a huge succulent into her bouquet, and she used large orchids in her hair. Just wow!!

This awesome wedding was flawlessly planned and coordinated by Merry Beth of Aisle of View and photographed by Kim and Loren of Alante Photography. Party Rentals by Cort and BBJ Linen, ice features by Creative Ice!

 

Beautiful Indian Wedding at Kiana Lodge

Anita and Ab were so lovely and certainly are not afraid of bold, bright colors! For their late spring Indian wedding we were able to include some of our favorite flowers, peonies, ranunculus and poppies! What a stunning bouquet they made!

The weather was not quite cooperating – it drizzled all day out at Kiana Lodge – but how could you be upset about that with such a fun wedding party and those cheerful colors surrounding you. We love these images by the ever so fabulous Shane Macomber!! I am especially in love with the pictures of the couple holding fun umbrellas!!

For the ceremony we scattered a lush bed of thousands of rose petals and lined the aisle with beautiful urn arrangements. Along with the talented gals at Perfectly Posh Events we were able to create a wedding that is a brightly colored feast for your eyes! One of our favorites this past spring!!

Shelly and Dave – Elegance at Sodo Park Seattle

Sodo Park with Herban Feast Wedding by Azzura Photography

Any wedding we get the pleasure of using gorgeous Cafe Au Lait dahlias is bound to be one of our favorites of the season, Dave and Shelly’s wedding at Sodo Park was no exception! What beautiful colors with the pops of juicy berry reds, muted pinks, and lots of greens, trailing ivy, and mossy elements. We had so much fun planning and designing this beautiful wedding with Shelly and her lovely mom! Their exquisite style expressed itself in every single design element and detail – we loved it!!

With all the sparkle of sequined table cloths, gold accents and candle light this wedding shone bright! We especially love details like their invitations matching the look and feel of the floral used in their wedding!

With a delicious meal prepared by Herban Feast and lots of dancing the guests and the Bride and Groom had a lovely evening to remember! With Day-of coordination by Perfectly Posh Events, all was captured by the talented Azzura Photography, enjoy looking at all these beautiful images!

Justine and Bryant – A Romantic Wedding at DeLille Cellars

Flora-Nova-Design-Seattle-Romantic-Delille-Wedding-18

Wow! What a handsome couple these two make! I think you’ll agree that these on-point moody photos by the talented Ben Blood perfectly capture the feel of these two beautiful people and their equally beautiful wedding.

With a venue as lovely as DeLille Cellars we didn’t need super elaborate flowers and instead focused on the wedding arch which we created using white lace and big clusters of flowers on either side and other special details such as the brides flower crown. Justine loves babies breath and we loved her for it! We were able to use touches of it everywhere: the flower crowns for her sweet flower girls, in the composite style centerpieces, the arch, and of course her bouquet!

Herban Feast catered a delicious meal for everyone, along with a mariachi band and dancing into the night this was one FUN, unique party!!

Classic White Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

Luxurious Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, by Flora Nova Design

What a lovely couple and a beautiful wedding we have to show you today! Melissa and Andy’s wedding was truly a classic and tasteful event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, photographed by the talented Yours by John.

We used roses, hydrangea, dahlias and phalaenopsis orchids in a white color palate with hints of champagne and dusty rose. By designing large pavé style tall arrangements, using gold elements, and lots of candles we were able to create a truly timeless, romantic event! Beautiful weddings like Melissa and Andy’s will never go out of style!

The ceremony featured a gorgeous arch we designed using dupioni silk, topped with hundreds of flowers in a compact style and strands of crystal hanging down. An over-the-top and stunning focal point for their special day! The aisle was lined with more beautiful flowers and candles! What a perfect wedding for such a beautiful couple!

An Elegant Seattle Outdoor Wedding at The Admiral’s House

bridal bouquet

Oh, this wedding of Caroline and Patrick!! Just wow! As soon as I saw these terrific images from La Vie Photography I was over the moon! I mean – just look at this gorgeous couple and the location of their reception! The couple chose to celebrate their wedding day at the Admiral’s House which offers a fabulous view of the city, the sound, the mountains, and the Seattle harbor.

We had a fantastic time collaborating with Holly-Kate and Company and the bride coming up with a color palette and a decor plan matching Caroline’s very own style and vision. We designed lush garden-style pieces incorporating muted pastel colors with lots of trailing greenery and blooming spring foliage. And luckily it was peony season too! Swoon – I’m so in love with the outcome – dreamy designs using so many of our favorite spring elements: anemones, garden spray roses, peonies, clematis, ranunculus, and lush garden greens.
