This Spring 2019 wedding is a favorite of mine for several reasons. An extravagant ceremony installation, a super laid-back couple, a wildflower look with lots of color, and beautiful weather. This one checked all the boxes to make it one of our favorites in 2019.
It would be easy to think that if you’re having a fall wedding, that your flowers would need to fit a traditional fall decor style (think pumpkins, wheat, burnt orange and yellow blooms). However, there are SO many different amazing modern styles and color pallets that work in the Fall. As a floral designer, it is always my job to help by clients find a floral and decor look that fits their personal style perfectly. You don’t have to wear cowboy boots and get married in a barn with your guests sitting on bales of hay to throw a seasonally appropriate event (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
The most popular floral color we see in the fall is burgundy. But as you can see, there are SO many beautiful ways to play with that color pallet!
As a wedding florist, I try to take good pictures of my work at an event. I have a professional camera, and some minor photography skills. But they are ALWAYS trumped by the professional photographer’s shots from the day.

It’s completely understandable why a guest would attend a wedding of a great friend or family member, and cry during the special moments they get to experience, right? Well, I’m going to tell you why I cried at this wedding of essentially strangers back in March.

Well friends, this Valentine’s week was an epic success! I’m going to be completely honest…we don’t usually do a TON of business for Valentine’s Day. I mean…we do okay; it’s just not primarily what we do. We spend a few days delivering arrangements to people in the Chattanooga area, but as far as the “daily delivery” set-up is concerns, we are NOT a well-oiled machine like some local floral shops.
I absolutely adore this new venue, the Turnbull Building, in Downtown Chattanooga. We do a lot of barn, farm, and outdoor weddings…and they are lovely. But a country style isn’t quite right for everyone. For this more modern couple, the urban style of the Turnbull Building was a perfect fit. I’m so excited that we already have a few other Turnbull weddings coming up in 2019.Continue reading “A Boho Wedding at a new Industrial Venue in Downtown 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.
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.
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 these gorgeous blooms!
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.
