A Timeless Slate Blue Outdoor Wedding | Tennessee RiverPlace, Chattanooga

I think Tennessee RiverPlace will forever be one of my favorite venues in the Chattanooga area.  The entire venue is situated right on the banks of the Tennessee River, with the mountains positioned as the most perfect natural backdrop to the ceremony.  On several occasions when setting up, I have been accompanied by several ducks passing by in the field behind the arbor.

The bride Alyssa chose a slate blue color pallet and decided she wanted a classy and timeless combination of white and soft blue for her flowers.  Ignoring the trend to go overboard and wild with greenery, Alyssa stayed true to her classic style and simply wanted a lush, full bouquet for herself and her bridesmaids.  With the selection of  several types of blooms and greenery to add lots of texture and subtle color, we created Alyssa’s bouquet just as she envisioned.  We decided to do a few pieces of jasmine vine draping away from the bouquet to bring in a somewhat whimsical feel.  This bouquet will be stunning in her wedding photos for years to come, regardless of what wedding trends may come and go.

To add to the whimsical and romantic feel, Alyssa and I decided to do something on the arbor that I have never before seen at the Tennessee RiverPlace.  I have worked many weddings there over the years, but never have I dressed up the arbor quite like this.  We did a “curtain” of long white wisteria, green hanging amaranthus, and eucalyptus greenery.  The wisteria was just stunning blowing in the wind during this September ceremony.

Fall Outdoor Wedding at Howe Farms

When I met with Hannah almost a year ago, I sat and drank coffee with her, and felt like I was chatting with an old friend.  She went to my alma matter (shout out Lee University) and I loved every single ideal she had for her wedding flowers and decor.   It was clear we had a lot in common.

I was so excited to find out that she had booked Howe Farms’ new venue, the Apple Barn, for her wedding.  We’ve worked at Howe Farms many times before.  It’s one of our favorite Chattanooga-area venues.  But we were itching to get our hands on this brand new venue they had just built at the farm.

I’ve been thinking about these rich fall burgundy flowers for months now.  Making sure I ordered the exact right blooms to confirm that Hannah and Ty’s vision for their wedding day came together perfectly.  My favorite choice of Hannah’s was her bridal bouquet with big funky burgundy Protea, and cascading red Hanging Amaranthus.

I have to admit, the day of the wedding, I was a bit disappointed about setting up in 90+ degree weather.  I soooo wanted it to be a crisp, cool fall evening to compliment the burgundy, grey and blush colors for this September wedding.  There was a little rain that came through to cool things down before the ceremony, which was nice.  And regardless of the temperature, the bridal party and couple were perfectly upbeat, beautiful, and so much fun to be around.  Just to give you a little inside view of how great Hannah and her family/friends were, as we arrived and started unloaded, the first thing Hannah said to me after giving me a big hug was “Is there anything I can do to help?”  Her sister and mom did the same thing, followed by her father insisting on helping us bring some boxes in.  I had to force the girls not to try to help.  We have literally never had a bride offer to “help” on her wedding day.  They are gems, for sure!

Now, a few weeks after the wedding, I’m so excited to share some photos of the wedding day.  And I will probably be Facebook stalking this sweet couple to keep up with everything new happening in their lives.  Hannah, Ty, and Family, it was so great getting to know you guys and working on your wedding.  It was a beautiful day, for sure!!!

A Colorful + Vibrant Latin Wedding in Chattanooga, TN.

A few weeks ago, we worked with something that we’re not very used to these days…COLOR!!! Lots and lots of COLOR!  Right now, the color trend in weddings is very soft and muted.  We often get asked to do blush, white, and/or ivory blooms, with a ton of greenery.  Don’t get me wrong, I like a soft color pallet for a wedding.  But when I sat down with this super sweet couple to talk about their wedding, the brides eyes lit up while we looked at her colors and ideas for flowers.  Due to her Latin heritage, it was clear she wasn’t a “Blush and Bashful” bride, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with all the gorgeous blooms!

Fast-forward to the day of Rosa + Brandon’s Wedding:
As my team and I started unloading the vehicles with our floral arrangements choked FULL of color, close behind came the Margarita guy delivering a frozen Margarita machine (Yum!)  Just a few minutes into set-up, and we started to notice the amazing aromas coming from the Venue’s kitchen. The bride’s family was doing the food: Traditional Mexican Cuisine!  To complete the theme were a Mariachi Band, a beautifully extravagant 11-piece wedding cake, and of course, the Margaritas y Cerveza station (Margaritas and Beer!).

Check out the photos.  These colors did not disappoint, and the bride and family raved about how much they loved it all. Oh, and how stunning is the bride, Rosa?  Brandon, you’re a lucky man!  These two were so sweet, and I celebrate with them on their beautiful wedding and marriage!

A Whimsical Outdoor Wedding in Cleveland, Tennessee

This was a wedding we did the flowers for last May, and I wanted to add it to my blog because I love the way the photography turned out, and the pictures of the bridal bouquet are just too good to not share! The bride was on a little bit of a budget (aren’t we all), and had the additional challenge of a large wedding party and guest count. We chose to splurge on the bridal bouquet, and do modest arrangements for the rest of the bridal party and centerpieces. Since this was a laid back barn venue, I think the combination and boho wild style fit perfectly.

Just look at all these beautiful shots by the photographer, Stephanie KozickI can always tell when a photographer loves flowers.

The wedding day featured beautiful weather, lovely and strategic pops of color, an outdoor ceremony and a reception in the casual open-air barn in Cleveland, Tennessee with bistro lights as an enchanting backdrop.

Classic Wedding Flowers | UTC’s Patton in Chattanooga, Tennessee

I wanted to post this wedding from last year’s wedding season, because I loved the beautifully dramatic cascading bouquet, with the classic mixture of white blooms with simple greenery.  The bride asked for the length of the bouquet to be extreme…and that it was.  When I delivered it, I assured her that if it were TOO MUCH, we could always scale it back.  Her eye lit up, and she answered, “no it’s perfect!”  This amount of drama may not be for everyone, but for her, it was just what she wanted.

In my 8+ years of doing wedding flowers, I love getting the opportunity to do something different.  Whether it be unique flower types or a different style of bouquet and/or centerpiece, I have been blessed with brides who put so much trust in me to take their vision for their wedding, and put a unique and customized spin on it.

The ceremony was at UTC’s Patton Chapel, in Chattanooga Tennessee, and the reception was right up the road at The Venue, Chattanooga.

How cute is this couple leaving the church!  It’s clear, they’re so in love!

A Modern Dusty Lavender Wedding in Chickamauga, Georgia

When I first met with the bride, Jerelyn, I knew she had a modern style, and wanted her wedding to be beautifully unique.  She and her fiance DIY-ed the hexagon and geometric elements of their wedding.  In our meeting, she drew out the ideas she had for the custom built floating hexagon shelves and the gold and grey geometric centerpieces.  I knew the flowers needed to match the modern feel.  So we kept the color pallet soft and dusty (to coordinate with the beautiful dusty lavender bridesmaid’s dresses), and we chose flowers and greenery that weren’t too traditional looking.  My favorite was the blackberry and the white scabiosa that were perfect to stick up out of the arrangements, calling attention to themselves.  Second favorite was the lilac, perfect to add texture and length to the bride’s cascading bouquet.

The wedding day at beautiful Magnolia Pines in Chickamauga, Georgia featured beautiful weather, lovely music, a heart-felt christ-centered ceremony, and of course, beautiful flowers by yours truly, Lang Floral Designs.

My Favorite Wedding Vendors

Every year around this time, I post a list of my favorite wedding vendors. In the 8+ years I have spent in the wedding industry, I have crossed paths with some amazing people who put their hearts and souls into what they do. My favorite thing is to run into old friends from my college or young adult years, and work with them side-by-side as wedding professionals. If you are recently engaged, planning a wedding, or know someone who is, I hope you can use this list and other resources to seek out small businesses and entrepreneurs striving to provide for their families, follow their dreams, and ultimately make yours come true for your dream wedding! Here goes:
