Laura and Lorenzo’s waterfront wedding at the Woodmark Hotel was a July dream. Our lovely couple chose a beautiful pallet of blush, creams, and peach with accents of blue. The bride’s elegant bouquet featured garden roses, dahlias as well as the sweet and delicate scabiosa. They brought in some of the groom’s Italian roots by adding olive branches and beautiful blue linens. We loved how the final look of the ceremony space came out, and especially the look on Laura’s face when she saw it for the first time (Clane Gessel caught it on camera, as you can see in the photos below)! So many special touches went into making this wedding possible, thanks to the coordination of Simply by Tamara Nicole. This beautiful day will be one to remember!
Ashley was everything we admire in a bride, laid back, sweet, a bit sassy, and she has the best taste(that dress!!!! Swoon!). This perfect couple got married last September at one of our favorite beautiful garden venues, DeLille Cellars.
The ceremony took place in the garden up on a hill surrounded by enormous trees, we loved the way their gardeny arch turned out(you can even see one of our designers hard at work creating it in one of the photos!). Late summer is always such a lovely time for flowers, we took advantage of the season by incorporating the huge peegee hydrangea and cafe au lait dahlia you can only get at this time of year.
For the reception space in the tent we covered all the chandeliers in our favorite Texas vine called smilax to incorporate the garden in the reception space as well. I know you’ll love these images of all the impeccable beauty this wedding included.
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.
Madeline & Ryan’s Wedding
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.
