Behind the Scenes: The Making of a Wedding

We at Flora Nova Design wanted to share something a little different with you. We love showcasing the gorgeous weddings that we are so honored to be a part of, but we haven’t ever shared what it looks like to build and design. So we decided to have one of our Design Assistants document our creative process! Here is a behind the scenes look of what goes into creating our designs!

Designing a bridal bouquet: Probably our favorite! The prettiest blooms go into the bouquets for the bride and her bride’s maids. In the photos below our designer creates Lauren’s bridal bouquet using a mix of peonies (yes, it was a June wedding), English garden roses, spray roses, scabiosa, rice flower, Dusty Miller, raspberry foliage, and white tweedia. How yummy is that bouquet?!

 

Building a ceremony arch: Lauren and Jake envisioned a lush garden arch for their ceremony. Since they opted for clear lucite ghost chairs, we used our clear lucite pillars and adorned them with long trailing smilax vines and large garden blooms in cream and blush. The outcome was a stunning organic design with a modern touch.

Creating table designs:¬†When you’re planning a wedding, there are so many options for what you can do with the design of reception tables. For this particular wedding, our lovely bride and groom chose to have several longer dinner tables with an array of smaller vases lining the table center. You don’t always need large arrangements to achieve a dramatic look. As you can see in the photos below, we designed using all different shaped low silver mercury vases. Paired with lots of candles this created a stunning table scape!

We hope you liked this behind-the-scenes look of Lauren and Jake’s beautiful June wedding. Let us know if you’d like to see more of these type of blog posts – we would be happy to show you others.
