Danielle and Logan’s outdoor wedding in the woods was very special to me personally. I have known and loved Danielle since she was a teenager in the youth group I was volunteering for. For many years since, Danielle has been a great family friend, loving my kids, popping in for visits with my husband and I whenever some major life moments were happening, and of course sharing with us all about Logan, the one who stole her heart.
A Spring Wedding in the Woods of East Tennessee
My floral meeting with Danielle was the first in-person meeting I’ve done with a bride in over a year. Ahh… how refreshing. We’re still doing most of our meeting via Zoom for both convenience and covid safety. However, since Danielle’s a friend who is around our family often, it made sense to have her over for the meeting.
As we scrolled through her Pinterest board, she shared with me how she wanted some ivory, blush, and champaign colors to coordinated with the various blush tones in the bridesmaid’s dresses. However, I also noticed that there were some plum and muted purple/mauve hues in some of the pictures she loved. And since Danielle and Logan’s wedding was in early April, I knew that Hellebores would be at peak beauty then. I absolutely LOVE using hellebores in bouquets because they’re kind of bouncy and delicate. But their prime season is short. They come in a variety of muted blush, mauve, wine, and plum colors, and they bring a dreamy garden-y style into any bouquet. We also chose an Amnesia Rose to incorporate that plum/mauve color into all the whites and blushes being used. I truly love the result. This set of bouquets might be in my top 10 favorite list!
I love Hellebores!
Here is a preview of a Hellebore. I actually don’t think they’re that beautiful by themselves. And when they’re growing in the bush, I think they’re even more unattractive. But something happens when you add these delicate plum blooms into a bouquet or floral arrangement.
Danielle also decided on a wooden triangle arch that her dad built. The arch was a perfect way of bringing floral color and texture up, while still avoiding anything that would distract from the natural beauty of their wedding in the woods. We brought a little Pampas Grass into the arch installation, just to add a tiny bit of boho flare. Danielle chose simple bud vases and candle centerpieces, all from our rental inventory, and a delicious buttercream cake with fresh florals added.
