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.
What’s not to love about Kerrianne and Seth’s dark-themed December wedding? When we first met, Kerrianne shared with me that her and her fiance were very outdoorsy and she had always dreamt of getting married on a remote mountain top somewhere. However, since they were getting married in December in Tennessee (which can bring a whole range of bad weather like rain, snow, ice and cold temperatures), they made the wise decision to book an indoor wedding venue. The Church on Main is an old historic church-turned-wedding-venue built in 1904. It is situated in the Southside of downtown Chattanooga, and offers gorgeous brick backdrops and vintage details.

Eucalyptus greenery in all of its forms has taken the wedding industry by storm. It’s muted blueish-green color fits perfectly with the grey tones and soft color pallets that brides love for their 2021 or 2022 wedding. As a wedding florist in Chattanooga, TN, we have worked on so many eucalyptus themed weddings including bouquets, centerpieces, garland, floral installations, even eucalyptus themed wedding invitations! So we’ve created basically a “BEST OF THE BEST”, as we show you how to pull together the most cohesive and modern touches for a beautiful eucalyptus wedding!
As owner and lead florist of Lang Floral Designs, a wedding floral studio in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I see a very wide variety of budgets. So here’s the super easy answer to the question: “How much, on average, should my wedding flowers cost?”
We have worked hard to collect a fabulous TOP 15 list of wedding venues in TN (Tennessee). Here at Lang Floral Designs, we do wedding flowers and event design in the Chattanooga area. We have had the privilege of working on over 100 weddings spanning the entire state of Tennessee and beyond.
Needless to say, we’ve worked at some GREAT wedding venues…and some not-so-great ones. We have taken note of some elements that are essential to a great wedding day for not only the couple, but also the bridal party and guests. A wedding is all about the experience, and we’re so excited to present to you 15 amazing venues that could become the place where your dream wedding comes to life!
As Brooke and Tyler planned their May wedding at The Barn at Faith Farms, they studied Pinterest for all the best rustic wedding ideas for summer. They chose a simple but modern style and color pallet to coordinate with their barn venue and casual personalities.
Here at Lang Floral Designs, we have created wedding flowers for more than 100 weddings. I have been in the industry for almost a decade. The first several years, I ran this business on the side of my full time Graphic Design career. Then, when I had my first baby, I decided to quit my full time job and build this business into more than just a side hustle. This business has followed my through my twenties, and well into my thirties. So, I have worked weddings under many different scenarios;
When I was younger and working full time, I would stay up almost all night before a big wedding arranging, because I didn’t get off work until 5pm. Those early years, I remember doing wedding set-up days completely exhausted from a “being tired” prospective. However, I had my youth on my side, so physically I was some how able to handle that. I’m 36 now, and let me tell you, there’s NO WAY I would try to stay up all night working before doing a wedding. I think I would literally pass out the next day.
I’ve done weddings while in the first trimester of pregnant when exhaustion is beyond what any normal person experiences. And then in the third trimester when I was doing that wonderful pregnancy waddle thing just trying to make it from one side of the venue to the other. I spent the entire first year of motherhood nearly throwing my back out after every single wedding. There were so many difficult and unhealthy seasons, and if you’re in the wedding industry in any capacity, you know that weddings are HARD WORK.
Through the years, I’ve learned some valuable tips and tricks to help get through a busy wedding set up day, and ultimately, wedding season! I’ve even asked some wedding industry friends of mine for their go-to resources so I could share them with you. Several gave me one very valuable trick that I hadn’t even thought of (tip #4). At this stage of my business, I feel like I’m at the healthiest I’ve ever been in terms of knowing where my limits lie physically, knowing what steps I need to take for a quick recovery so I can do it again the following weekend, and knowing when I need to call in the troops for help.
These days, an intimate “micro” wedding is becoming so much more appealing to many couples. So earlier this year, some wedding vendor friends and I got together to create this styled shoot to represent a beautiful intimate wedding using earthy colors and textures, with a few boho details. We chose a cottage-style wedding venue, with a mix of indoor/outdoor spaces, and that rugged vintage charm that makes for that perfect intimate feel. If you would like to learn more about what a styled shoot is in the wedding industry, and hear the full story behind this photo shoot, click HERE. And, if you’re considering an intimate “micro” wedding, take a look at our TOP 10 MICRO WEDDING IDEAS.
My nickname for this color pallet is “Butterscotch Sunset”, haha. I chose these colors to compliment the natural elements of this gorgeous cottage-style wedding venue, like the rugged wooden features of the open-air tent and the stone detailing of the on-site cottage. We knew that including items with a more natural, organic feel would be key to create this charming and earthy look to accompany the intimate feel of a micro wedding.
Scroll down further for links to every single items that we used to pull together the look of this intimate wedding shoot.
It kind of blows my mind that this eucalyptus winter wedding was our 100th! I can remember each and every one of the 100 weddings we’ve done, and have a great sense of appreciation for each wedding. It’s an absolute honor to be chosen to work on a wedding, and I never take for granted the weight of each event. Two people are getting married and starting their lives off together…and I get to be a part of it. It’s really amazing that we have been involved in 100+ at this point.
