When Allie & I first met to talk floral and event design, she told me wanted her wedding to be soft and romantic- blushes, ivory and greys and very natural. And, for some reason she mentioned she had a love for A Little Shop of Horrors. From then on all I could think of were soft beautiful blooms and giant leaves- and to get the leaves I wanted, I knew I had to grow them myself because my wholesalers weren't offering what I was wanting in that season. I grew dark sweet potato vine (yea, a sweet potato really does grow at the roots!) and rex begonia leaves, and used cafe o lait dahlias, a bit of eucalyptus, astilbe, and mojalica roses in their bouquet and arrangements. I loved bringing a natural look into The Henry Clay since it's typically filled with a more traditional design for weddings.
Chris was a big part of the design of this wedding and I would be a terrible wife if I didn't give him credit! Thank you, Chris, for climbing that tree and cutting down branches so you could build the arch these two got married in front of. Thank you for building the structure Allie walked out of to meet her grom at the altar. And thank you for never thinking my ideas are too crazy- thank you for thinking nothing is impossible and always figuring out a way. I couldn't do it all without you! xoxo
Thank you to Weekend Wedding Warriors Maggie & Morgan! The executed the logistical/coordination side of the event so I could take on all things creative. I love working with them- they are vital to this industry...and to me! ALSO, thank you Amanda Jacobs for assisting with the florals and to Charlotte Turtle, and of course, my mom for assisting with set up.
