When Ryen reached out to me to begin planning the flowers and decor with a winter wedding theme at The Peyton in Chattanooga, she shared with me that they had originally planned for a Fall wedding. However, had recently found out that her brother, who is in the Army, was being deployed in the Spring. So, they decided to move their wedding date up to early March, to ensure Ryen’s brother could attend. However, since their first concept was a fall wedding, Ryen’s wedding style leaned a little bit fall-ish.
Flowers for a Winter Wedding Theme
As Ryen and I looked through specific flowers to coordinate with a now winter wedding, I assured her that I thought with just a few slight color changes, we could make her fall flower inspiration photos look a little more “winter-y”. With the addition of some eucalyptus, some white anemones with dark centers, and some beautiful super muted lavender roses called amnesia, the flowers fit a March wedding perfectly. We leaned a little more toward the lighter colored blooms for the bridesmaids, since they were wearing Navy, floor-length gowns. And just look at these beautifully simple flower girl crowns, using thin gunni eucalyptus, and just a few strategically placed blooms.
A Family member custom-built the wooden cross for Ryen and Adam’s ceremony at The Peyton in St. Elmo (Chattanooga). We decided to do a floral installation that was modern and a little asymmetrical on it, without overpowering the cross itself.
We love how the flowers turned out, and how everything was cohesive with the other decor, the cake (by Toni at Sweet Angel Cakes), and the bridal party attire. Also, did you notice the Yeti cooler Groom’s cake (also by Sweet Angel Cakes). It looked so real, even in person!
Shortly after the wedding, Ryen told me that she receive rave reviews from her wedding guests about how fresh and beautiful all the flowers looked. We were so honored to work with Ryen and Adam on their winter wedding, and wish them a lifetime of blessings in their marriage!
