Shelby and Zeb

I met Shelby and Zeb last fall when they came in for a consultation to talk about their wedding flowers. They were a lot of fun and I really enjoyed our meeting. I was so excited when I got a text from Shelby a few weeks later saying she wanted me to do the flowers! Shelby knew exactly what she wanted and what she liked and that happened to be SUNFLOWERS! I love taking the Bride’s vision and ideas and bringing them to life!

Their wedding & reception took place at the beautiful 701 Whaley and was photographed by Clark Berry Photography.  The videography was done by Absolute Wedding Films and the lighting was done by Big Time Entertainment. The beautiful cake and cupcakes were made by Vicki at Vintage Bakery.

Shelby and Zeb are a special couple! I am happy to know them and thrilled that we got to be a part of their big day!

Take a look at some of the beautiful images that Clark and Becki captured!

 

Spinner’s Resort

Recently, I had the opportunity to meet with Theresa LeJohn, owner of Spinner’s Resort to check out their resort on beautiful Lake Murray. What a neat venue to have a wedding or event. The lakeside clubhouse is gorgeous and a great option and there is also a  private beach to have a  lakeside wedding as well.  Another great feature of this venue is that they have accommodations for you and your guests with the neat cottages they have on the property.  Check out their website for more information and contact information – Spinner’s Resort.

Once you book Spinner’s for your lakeside wedding, be sure to meet with us to discuss flowers for your special event!

 

Jessie and Will

Jessie and Will were married on Friday, September 21, 2012 at The Millstone at Adams Pond (what a neat venue)! Jessie and Will were so easy going and it was a pleasure to be their wedding florist!

Jessie carried a bouquet of all white flowers that included roses and hydrangeas. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous navy blue dresses and carried bouquets of yellow flowers that included roses, alstroemeria, lilies, craspedia and solidago.

Will wore a white rose boutonniere and the groomsmen’s boutonnieres were made with craspedia. We made corsages for the Mothers and Grandmothers with yellow roses. There were three adorable flower girls and they carried yellow kissing balls! 

Red Apple Tree Photography did a fantastic job capturing their special day and I have included some of their awesome photos. Enjoy!

The 2013 Color of the Year goes to….

Pantone, “the worldwide standard for color communication and inspiration since 1963” has named “Emerald”  the color of the year for 2013. It is a lovely color and I am excited to see it used in upcoming weddings! There are so many color options for flowers that coordinate with Emerald. Orange, peach or yellow quickly come to mind but shades of pink would be really pretty too! All white would really stand out against Emerald colored dresses as well! Oh my, there are so many different directions you can go! Tell me, what do you think of the color Emerald? What color flowers would you pair with it?

Mandy and Nolan

Mandy and Nolan were married on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at Four ‘O Three North Lake, in Lexington, SC. Mandy was a pleasure to work with. She has such a great personality and is a lot of fun to be around! Even a big rainstorm on her wedding day couldn’t wipe the smile off her face!

For her bouquet she chose blue hydrangeas, orange lilies, iris and white roses. We wrapped lace from her dress around the stems for the finishing touch. The bridesmaids were Mandy’s two sisters and they carried  blue hydrangeas and orange lilies.

For the reception, we added a few flowers around the lanterns that Mandy provided for each guest table. We also added flowers to the cake and made a large arrangement for the food table in the wedding colors.

Corey Potter was their photographer and I’ve included  a few of the great photos he shared with us!

We were so happy to be a part of their wedding day! Best wishes to the happy couple!

 

 

Susan and Jonathan

Susan and Jonathan were married on Saturday, October 22, 2011. Hard to believe it’s already been a year! I so enjoyed working with Susan and her Mom, Carol.  They are such sweet people and after our first meeting I felt like I had known them a long time. I was thrilled to be a part of Susan and Jonathan’s special day!

The ceremony was held at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in West Columbia. This is one of my favorite churches In Lexington County as it is so pretty to look at as you are driving down Emmanuel Church Rd. It also has a beautiful altar area and I love that we get to make altar flowers there often for Sunday services! Susan chose all white for the ceremony flowers and we also attached bows to the pews.

The reception was held at Lexington County Municipal Center and catered by Rusty’s Catering.  Susan chose bright colors for the reception flowers. We made guest table centerpieces and a large buffet table centerpiece in oranges, yellows, purples and hot pinks.

Clark and Becki Berry photographed the big day and took amazing pictures, as always. James and Marianna Player of Absolute Wedding Films did the videography. They always do an awesome job too and I love watching their wedding films!

Happy 1st Anniversary, Susan and Jonathan!

Blair and Britt

Blair and Britt were married on Saturday, September 18, 2010. As they celebrate their 2nd wedding anniversary I wanted to share some of the details of their special day! The ceremony took place at Red Bank United Methodist Church and the reception was held at Country Club of Lexington.

I so enjoyed working with Blair and her Mom Sheila throughout the planning process! What a treat to work with such nice people! For Blair’s bouquet she selected white hydrangea, white roses and white calla lilies. We wrapped  her bouquet stems with lace from her gorgeous dress! The ten bridesmaids wore “Expresso” (brown) dresses and carried mango callas lilies.

For the church, we used white flowers such as lilies, roses, hydrangea and calla lilies. We created “Entrance Wreaths” for the front doors, placed a garland on the guestbook table and a large arrangement for the table in the narthex. In the sanctuary, we designed the altar arrangements and flowers for the candelabras and clustered roses with satin ribbon to mark the pews.  We also added a vase of white roses in memory of loved ones.

For the reception, we used flowers in rich fall tones such as roses, mango calla lilies, mokara orchids, brown gerbera daisies and more. We created “Entrance Swags” and attached them to the front railings. Then in the foyer we added a vase of flowers as guests entered the reception. We also designed a large vase arrangement for the food table  as well as centerpieces for the guest tables. On the mantle at the country club, Blair’s gorgeous bridal portrait was displayed and we added a few vases of flowers to the mantle.

Clark Berry Photography did a wonderful job and captured beautiful shots and as always they were very kind to share several of them with us! I’ve included a few, to see more click here.

I was honored to be the florist for their wedding! Happy Anniversary, Blair and Britt!
