A Summer Chapel Wedding with Organic Garden-Style Flowers

Rachel & Cesar’s wedding took place at one of our favorite Tennessee wedding venues, Howe Farms. The property has several different wedding venues on site, including a couple of barns, a couple of more industrial-style spaces, and the Highlands Chapel, the venue Rachel and Cesar chose. This cute white chapel is one of their newer buildings, and this was our first time getting to work their!

When Rachel and I met over Zoom, she described to me her vision for her wedding flowers, being light and airy to coordinate with the aesthetic of the Chapel. She also loved the idea of using color in a subtle way. We decided to use a primarily blush/apricot/mauve color pallet for the flowers, but with hints of ivory & pale yellow. Then, Rachel loved the Pinterest inspiration she had found of gold candlestick with varying colored taper candles. So, we mixed these in with lots of floral bud vases and gold tea-light candles, all from our rental inventory.

I absolutely loved that Rachel gave me the freedom to be a bit flexible with the exact flowers we used. She was in love with an overall style rather than and exact match of one inspiration photo. This gave me the ability to shop for most of the flowers locally, at Creekside Flower Farm, hand picking what was in season and would bring that look to life.

Rachel loved the simple beauty of the ceremony space at the Chapel, so she chose not to do anything floral in there. Just the presence of the organic, garden-style bouquets for the bride and her 6 bridesmaids brought plenty of beauty and color into the ceremony.

We also got the opportunity to custom design the couple’s fabric wedding welcome sign. It hung from our Copper sign stand and it was accompanied by gorgeous wild-looking greenery at the entrance of the chapel.
