For clients looking to take their wedding or event to a whole new level of drama and “wow,” hanging floral installations are often the way to go.  From adding green vines to existing chandeliers to suspending large floral wreaths to designing one-of-a-kind natural structures, we have done it all!  It is always so much fun to push our creativity and ingenuity in coming up with new and exciting ways to bring our clients’ vision to life.  And, if you’re looking to add that extra punch to your upcoming event, here are some fun ideas for you!

Tents are often the perfect place to add hanging floral.  For this wedding at DeLille Cellars (pictured above), the existing tent already had great chandeliers – they just needed a little greenery to take them over the top.  Now when the guests enter the tent for dinner, instead of a blank white tent ceiling, they eyes are drawn to a lush hanging garden.  The whole space seems more inviting and cozy with the addition.

Hanging floral installations can be dressed up or dressed down, as you can see in these next examples.  In the first picture (above), the hanging wreaths suspended from the peak of this sophisticated sailcloth tent add a touch of romance to this elegant backyard wedding.  In the next example, strung vines across the ceiling of this enclosed tent add a touch of summer to a winter corporate event.  And finally, in the last two examples, grapevine and floral wreaths are the perfect addition to these two informal events – the first on a dude ranch, and the second on Orcas Island.

Each event has its own particular style and atmosphere, and hanging floral installations can often serve as statement pieces that epitomize that unique, individual style.  In the first example (above), a long floral and greenery bar suspended low over the head table creates a focal point in the dining room and highlights the intimate, romantic, and sophisticated feel of this wedding.  In the next example, the dance floor becomes the focal point, with a custom willow, greenery, and floral installation centered over this first dance.  This is an intimate moment, yes, but this installation points ahead to the joyful, colorful, larger-than-life party that is about to break out after this first dance finishes.  The clean, spare lines of this last example perfectly compliment the tasteful, understated architecture, linens, chairs, and table settings for this elegant wedding of two creative professionals.  Individual tulips suspended in a ring on filament hover over each table like a halo.  In each example, these hanging floral installations help to articulate the clients’ vision and bring their dream event to life.

What a lovely and elegant couple these two make! We loved designing this wedding for Sarah and Nick, they have such wonderful style. Sarah’s bouquet made with garden roses, ferns, lisianthus, and other beautiful blooms, was designed in a loose hourglass shape with trailing silk ribbons, all reasons that made this truly one of our favorite bouquets this last summer! They wanted an event filled with greens and designed in a loose and un-fussy way. Bearing that in mind we created an arch out of dupioni silk fabric and covered it in vines and roses that they were married in front of and later used behind the head table. These beautiful images by Manchik Photography really capture all of the loveliness of this perfect wedding!

For their August wedding at DeLille Cellars, our lovely couple Tami and Steve chose to embrace the greys: cool blue-grey bridesmaids’ dresses, warm grey eucalyptus foliage, fuzzy grey dusty miller leaves, grey slacks and suspenders on the groomsmen, even grey-toned wine barrels!  All of these greys were paired with classic white linens and floral under the dramatic white reception tent. Alex of  Taylor’d Events provided the coordination, and Ben B Photography captured the whole event in the photographs below. Lovely!

Noelle and Jesse were a little ahead of the curve when choosing the color palate for their beautiful purple wedding last July. When we saw the color of this year was Ultra Violet we were itching to be able to show you these images from that special day. Purple, when paired with plums, blues, and fuchsias, can be a lovely and interesting combination for your wedding. All of our brides are so different and diverse, it is a joy to put together a unique medley of flowers for each of them.

Outdoor summer weddings in the Seattle area can not be beaten, the season is so short and perfect. We love garden weddings! The pictures of these two in the Lakewold Gardens are so sweet and romantic, plus what could be better than having your reception outdoors under a wisteria covered arbor that we hung loads of purple orchids from?! We especially loved the vine and floral covered circle arch we created for the front entrance, when the guests entered through it they no doubt knew they were in for a memorable evening.

Megan and Neil got married last March (one year ago!) on a cool gray late-winter day. These beautiful pictures by Sullivan & Sullivan make it seem ultra worthy of craving a cold dreary day. It all looks so dreamy and moodily romantic in all the best ways possible. Speaking of the photography, if you click on that link you can look at the post they did that has soooo many more delicious photos of these two beauties and their fun reception.

One of our favorite parts of this wedding was the two beautiful tunnel circle arches we got to create, both of them brimming with greens and roses. One at the aisle entrance that they walked through, and a second to frame Megan and Neil that we suspended candles and succulents from. We used both of these later for the reception behind the head table and to frame out the dessert table. When we make a beautiful focal point like these we always try and think about how we can use them in the space for the ceremony and the reception as well. We did the same with the candles down the aisle – transferred to tables after the I Do’s! It’s easier on the budget, less waste and gives you more time to enjoy the beauty of the wedding flowers.

Happy One Year of marriage Megan & Neil!!

Wishing you both the very most happiness, love and many, many returns of the day!

We are so excited to share Kim and Anthony’s September wedding at The Golf Club at Newcastle here! It was a visual feast of creamy peach and green against the white and cream backdrop of this popular Seattle-area venue.  Delicate clematis vines, smilax, spirea, seeded eucalyptus, and raspberry leaves partnered with garden roses, dahlias, Queen Anne’s lace, and four different kinds of late summer hydrangea in lush, romantic arrangements.  Gold candelabras, mercury glass votives, and charger plates lent an air of rich sophistication to the creams and greens.  A tall dupioni silk and floral arch framed the tent ceremony and then moved indoors behind the sweetheart table at dinner.  Claire of Simply Tamara Nicole  ably coordinated the whole event, and Laurel McConnell Photography captured it all in the photographs below.
