Southern Colorado Mountains Destination Wedding

Check out this amazing destination wedding that we planned, designed and setup in the mountains near La Veta, Colorado at a gorgeous lodge!  Many items including the chair ruffles were handcrafted by Water To Wine. It was a crazy day dealing with high winds of 35+ mph and we had to adjust the setup a bit in the tent and lay the arch on the ground just until the ceremony. Luckily the winds died down by reception time.  Catering was done by the Food Designers out of Colorado Springs and the entertainment came in from Utah, Dueling Pianos!

If you are interested in having similar decor we are more than happy to help you have your dream wedding.  We are available with no travel fees for north Florida and most of Alabama, and Southern Georgia.  Other locations will incur travel fees. Call or email today and let’s get to work on created your beautiful wedding!

 

Also, we do have the custom hand made chair ruffles in our stock available for weddings!

Destination Wedding at Lake Martin Alabama at the Children’s Harbor

This post is from the wedding of Jeremy and Destini who traveled to Lake Martin in Alexander City, Alabama at the Children’s Harbor.  The ceremony was held in the Children’s Harbor Chapel with the reception in the Gazebo lakeside as well as dinner being dished up at the Hank Williams Cabin where the bride and groom also took turns getting ready for the big event.  The theme was Southern Vintage and touches of shabby chic.  Check out all the customized and hand made decor!  From the vintage mason jars, to hand painted antique vanity, signs, to hand crafted table linens.  The flowers were out of this world!  And the brides bouquet was the largest we had ever made with a mix of white peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, and dripping with a train of streams of single strands of leis flown in fresh from Hawaii!  Check the blog again for a post with just the flowers and details of each variety.

Micah & Cristie Destination Wedding in Destin Florida

This is the gorgeous destination Destin wedding of Micah & Cristie in Florida that we set up in the middle of terrible thunderstorms, tropical storm force winds, lightning, thunder, beach erosion, and the panhandle receiving record rainfall. We weren’t able to place the chandelier due to wind and we had to wrap the chiffon around the bamboo, the chair sashes were blowing in the wind, the chairs actually were blown over during big gusts of the storm…we were afraid at one point we wouldn’t be able to set any flowers out. However, just several short minutes before their ceremony as they were about to arrive, we got a break in the storms. We wish them the best! Watch for the next post with their reception photos.

Wedding Flowers used in this event: white hydrangea painted in shades of purple, green hydrangea, white mums, purple calla lilies, purple tulips, purple stock, lavender roses. The brides bouquet was purple calla lilies and purple tulips, the bout was calla lily and tulip, in the flower girls bouquets we used baby’s breath and purple stock, the corsages were from the mums, roses, tulips and a touch of green limonium. Roses for tossing were a mix of white, lavender, vendela, and painted purple rose petals for a pop of color.

If you are looking for Destin wedding planners or perhaps all you need is a Destin Wedding Florist, then give us a call and let’s discuss all the delicious details of your dream wedding.

Painting Flowers for Destin Weddings

This past weeks destination wedding in Destin Florida was in purple, green, white, and black. Instead of ordering purple hydrangea and possibly not receiving the proper shade; we ordered white hydrangea from the farm and purchased purple and lavender floral spray paint. Once we painted one lavender it looked more pink than we wanted. So we painted the purple lightly on top of the lavender and it gave us just the shade we were looking for next to the purple. The really stunning thing about the hydrangea is you still see some of the white coming through just like happens naturally with hydrangea that are colored. If you are considering DIY painting flowers for your wedding, be sure to hold the can 15 inches away from the flowers and shake the flower as you spray. This technique will not work with all flowers. The good thing about this is that if you are having a wedding with colors that don’t occur naturally you can get floral spray paint in nearly every color. Use caution when placing painted flowers in bouquets as they could possibly bleed on your clothes. We only used our painted flowers in the decor so it wasn’t an issue. We are very pleased with the results of our painted flowers.

If you are planning your Destin wedding, give us a call to discuss the options for custom painted flowers in your wedding design. We can serve as your Destin wedding planners or just hire us as your Destin beach wedding florist.

Jill Lauren Wedding Photography - okay – I seriously didn’t know you could do this to flowers! It wasn’t until a recent photo shoot that I saw the florist spraypaint the flowers the color she needed. It was one of those DUH moments.
What a great idea – I guess the secret is out now…you can have hydrangeas in any color of the rainbow…I love giving my clients exactly what they want!
Thanks for the post. The flowers look Fabulous when they are purple!

Kyle + Amanda Destination Destin Wedding

Check out this gorgeous beach wedding in Destin that we designed and set up for Kyle and Amanda.

The colors were tangerine orange and hot pink. The bamboo arbor was draped with tangerine orange and hot pink organza and topped off with a gorgeous centerpiece filled with tangerine and hot pink roses, tangerine and hot pink tulips, hot pink nerine lilies, tangerine and hot pink celosia, tangerine and hot pink carnations, pink veronica, one giant pink peony, lambs ear, and palm leaf branches, the sides had tulips tied at mid pole. The aisle was lined with shepherd’s hooks and kissing balls of tangerine orange and hot pink carnations flowing with streams of organza ribbon. We tied white chiavari chairs with hot pink organza chair sashes. There were heart shaped baskets filled with tangerine and hot pink rose petals to shower the couple as they exited the aisle as newlyweds. The brides bouquet was completely stunning!!!! We hand tied large pink peonies, hot pink mini calla lilies, hot pink nerine lilies, hot pink tulips, hot pink roses, pink veronica, hot pink and tangerine orange celosia, tangerine roses, and lambs ear. The bouquet was wrapped with hot pink organza and a small braid of tangerine and organza ribbon. The bridesmaids bouquets were hand tied with tangerine orange and hot pink carnations, hot pink and tangerine orange tulips, hot pink and orange roses, and hot pink nerine lilies. The bouts were made with hot pink mini calla lilies, hot pink nerine lilies, lambs ear, and the grooms had one stem of pink veronica. The flowers were simply fabulous and the perfect touch for a Destin beach wedding.

Wedding Arch for Destin Beach Weddings

The Wedding Arch

There are many different ways you can choose to decorate your ceremony site and one way would be with the traditional wedding arch. Once the arch has been put together, you will be able to decorate it however you like. I think we are all  accustomed to the photos we see of the old typical white arch with fake plastic flowers.  Nothing says 1985 like a fake floral decorated arch!  I think it may be one of our most hated items to be used in weddings.  However, as reviled as the dollar store arch is in our opinion, the arch can be a simply magnificent focal point done in a vintage or modern style.  You can use ivy, flowers, flowers, flowers, and more flowers, or use more earthy items like branches and grapevine, or you can add pearls and crystals to bling it up or even add starfish and seashells.

Our Destin wedding planners can help you come up with the perfect wedding arch to compliment your personal style and design theme for your Destin beach wedding. Like a gazebo, this is a great way to frame the photos of your wedding. Here we have an example of one of the arches we designed for a destination Destin wedding on the beach and some other great arches that inspire us.  If you don’t need our full services as your Destin wedding planners, then consider us as your floral designer and supplier.  We are the premier Destin wedding florist providing all of your wedding day and reception floral needs and can create a beautiful arch just like one of these for your Destin beach wedding!

The above two photos are of an arch we did for a destination wedding at Inlet Beach near Destin, Florida for an Atlanta couple.  The following photos are for inspiration.

Anemone Bouquet & Boutonniere

Today we have photos from Michael and Melissa’s destination Seaside Florida wedding of the bouquet and boutonniere.  The boutonniere is made from a dark centered white anemone, white tulip, and dusty miller.  The bouquet was filled with white spider mums (the brides favorite), a few white roses, white tulips, and with dark centered white anemones.  The bouquet was hand tied.  One bit of advice I can give if using anemones and tulips is to be gentle!  Both tulips and anemones have a fat yet tender stem.   The brides bouquet held up well but by the time the reception rolled around there were a few outer stems that were leaning a bit.  One way to avoid this would be to wire the stems.  Another way to deal with tender floral choices is to place the more tender stems in the center of the bouquet and use hardier flowers for the outer stems.  Talk with your Destin wedding florists for the proper design of your bouquet for Destin beach weddings.  And for all of your Destin wedding flowers, just give us a call!

Michael + Melissa Destination Wedding Part 1 – Ceremony

Today we present part 1 of the absolutely stunning destination wedding of Michael and Melissa near Destin, Florida! Their wedding is truly eye candy! We have had the pleasure of working with Melissa for the past 6 months to create her dream Destin area beach wedding. We like to call this Beach Chic – Rustic with a twist of Vintage! When Melissa first contacted us she had just booked her reception venue at Bud & Alley’s Pizza Bar in Seaside, Florida; a very quaint beachside town on the Beaches of South Walton. We helped them to locate a beach house in Seacrest and held the ceremony just down the street at Walton Dunes. Melissa had several must have items in her design, she loved grapevine/twig balls, spider mums, burlap, raffia, and she wanted a lantern card/gift holder. She shared several inspiration photos with us and we ran with her inspiration to create this stunning design. Some of her wishes were parasols, a sign with quote, and hanging flowers and lights. We used mason jars, old vintage bottles, vintage crates, burlap, raffia, lace, lanterns, starfish, and many fresh flowers. Her invitations had a touch of navy blue ribbon and lace so we decided to include blue lace in the design and soften it with just a touch of white lace. The colors of white, ivory, beige, dark brown, and navy blue complimented each other well in the over all theme and design.   A must have flower for Melissa was the spider mums but she gave us the design freedom to choose the other flowers that we felt would best give her just what she was looking for. So we chose dark centered anemones to bring out the touch of navy blue, white roses, white hydrangea, white spider mums of course, and the final choice that gave that last little pow was the addition of white tulips.   Melissa’s bouquet was hand tied with anemones, roses, tulips, and spider mums.  The groom’s bout was made with an anemone, tulip, and dusty miller.

We hand crafted most of the items in this wedding, from the creation of the grapevine balls, to hand painting and crafting of signs, to painting the lanterns, all of the jars and burlap/lace/ribbon, to the table cloths at the reception. We couldn’t be more pleased with the final product and the most important part of the whole event is that two people in love were joined in marriage. It turned out that we had bad storms coming in for the scheduled day of their wedding and 48 hours prior to the event we called our bride who was about to get on a plane and advised her to move the wedding up one day. The reception venue, the baker, and our company were able to work together and move her wedding at the last minute and Michael and Melissa had a beautiful sunshine filled wedding day. On the day of their originally scheduled wedding it stormed and it stormed something fierce. Thankfully our couple’s Destin area beach wedding did not happen in the midst of bad weather!  Stayed tuned for part 2 with reception photos at Bud & Alley’s.

Matt + Lauren Florida Destination Wedding in Grayton Beach

We had the pleasure of designing and setting up the destination wedding of Tennesee couple, Matt and Lauren. It was a beautiful sun drenched day on the Emerald Coast in Grayton Beach, Florida just a few miles from Destin. It was quite windy which was a little hard on the floral arrangements but they still looked just simply beautiful and elegant! The arrangements were filled with white Peonies, white Freesia, Jumbo white hydrangea, blue hydrangea, and mini green hydrangea. The brides bouquet was a cascade style show stopper! We can’t even put into words just how beautiful the peony filled bouquet truly was.  Our description just doesn’t give justice to it’s beauty and the photos are pretty close but can’t impart the fragrance from the fresh peonies! If only you could smell the flowers through this post!  The wedding was simple and elegant with colors inspired from the sea to create Lauren’s vision of her big day. Matt’s Dad performed the intimate ceremony in front of family and close friends who traveled to Florida with them for their destination wedding.  Make sure and check for the full post of wedding images to come from Destin wedding photographer, Micah Jones, and the highlight film from Destin wedding cinematographer, Dakoda Jones from Studio Eleven One.

Pam Archer - I am enjoying looking at your blog and website. I saw your comment on Preston Bailey’s blog and followed the link here. You are very talented!

I haven’t thought of using Freesia as a trailing flower, but it works beautifully in this bouquet. I will remember that for my own designs. Thanks for the inspiration.

TomMarie Jones - Thanks so much! Checked out your site and your work is beautiful!
