It's all in the details of this Villa stunner.

If you love beautiful film photography, then you're in for a treat!  Brian and Shannon chose their wedding vendors very carefully and their smartest decision (besides hiring us ;) was to hire Lane Ditto.  We love working with Lane, he makes everything look perfect!  And you're about to see all the beautiful details of this stunning September wedding at our favorite spot down the street, The Villa.

Amazing, right?  We loved all the details and working with Shannon and Brian!  They were a fun and very sweet couple.  We wish them all the best.  We definitely spread some floral love on this one!  Look for a new blog post next Wednesday.

A Post Full of Thanks and Romantic Villa Details

This Thanksgiving week, we are thankful for all of our followers and couples. What better way to say thanks then to feature one of those very couples who gave us the opportunity to create and be a part of their special day? Nicole and Elan's wedding had our favorite garden roses, sweet-smelling stock, and our signature birch arch. There was romance in all the lace details and soft colors, yet beautiful galvanized lanterns and natural wood chairs brought in a rustic flair. As your reading, be sure to see their unique table numbers. LOVE! A huge thank you to Troy Grover Photographers for the photos. They always bring out the beauty of the weddings they shoot. See their website here.

As it comes upon Thanksgiving, we just want to say that we are also grateful that we get to work with such talented artists for a living. We are also grateful for our supporters because we wouldn't be where we are without your glowing recommendations. Have a happy Thanksgiving, and spread some floral love!

Boho-Chic Inspired Wedding

The moment we met Paige, we loved her style. We called it "Free People" inspired. We're talking lace embellishments, organic-inspired materials, and very casual--yet elegant and chic. The process of creating this wedding was also a blast! We loved the wood and tin plant boxes mixed with tin cans (covered in lace). The whole wedding had a casual and fun vibe with the perfect mix of a black tie event.

For the flowers, we used a lot of succulents, grasses, airplants, and other earthy elements. Green and brown bottles helped to enhance the organic color scheme. Most bridal bouquets have lots of flowers, but Paige wanted something with grasses, pods, airplants, and almost NO flowers. It was truly beautiful, and an honor to be part of a wedding that was different from anything else we have ever seen.

A big thanks to Paige's amazing wedding coordinator Stacie Truitt of Gatherings by Stacie

The bride surprised the mothers with fresh flower bracelets. We think these are a great alternative to corsages, so we teamed up with Wedding Chicks to create this DIY.

We are wishing Paige and Chase the very best! Working with them was an amazing experience, not only because they are so sweet, but because they incorporated their unique style into every aspect of their wedding. Definitely spreading floral love at its best!
