A Gathering of Greens..
Organic, earthy, natural. These were the three words Madeleine used when describing the florals for her wedding day. Fitting because her maiden name is...Green! I love when brides incorporate names, experiences, or items from their everyday life into their design. It's authentic & really helps create that perfect day they have always dreamed of. Keeping the blooms simple and sweet while really focusing on the greenery & foliage was something I thought would create that earthy look she was going for.
Imagine you were walking through a field of green, green grass up to your waist and as you're walking through, you find little blooms along the way....THATS what we were going for. The delicateness of the sweet peas to the boldness of the anemones gave this that organic look while adding in lisianthus and ranunculus allowed us to create wispiness to this design.
Did I mention that this entire design was planned in 2 weeks? Now I'm not saying you should wait that long to contact us or...your florist (which should be us) but it has been done! With unfortunate circumstances from her previous florist
(sh** happens) we were able to step in and help Madeleine and her fiancé out to create this magical day for them!
TEXTURE, TEXTURE, TEXTURE. All I could think about when planning her decor options. Don't be afraid to shake it up and mix & match your decor for your tables! We sure weren't...and if I do say so myself, IT WORKS! The herringbone vases, paired with our cut crystal votives give it that natural effortless look that we were ultimately going for.
When it came to the furniture, I wanted to keep it simple. Let the flowers do the talking. The Astorian is an amazing space to add lounge areas into. There are plenty of nooks & crannies to create that intimate lounging experience for your guests. The end tables, coffee tables, chairs and sofas elevated this wedding and made for plenty of comfortable seating areas..and with places to set your cocktail while you're boogying on the dance floor. 10/10 would recommend renting furniture for your big day!
All in all, this wedding was absolutely incredible & we are OBSESSED with the entire design aesthetic.
