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!
For Jessie and Taylor’s wedding, they chose a gorgeous mint color, an urban venue as the setting, and tons of white flowers and fresh greenery! This was one of our first weddings in our HUGE Spring wedding season this year. And, we absolutely loved starting our season out at the Turnbull Building in Chattanooga. This 4-story historic building downtown has tons of urban charm, and we love that the ceremony space is pretty much a blank canvas. So, we often get to create something non-traditional as the ceremony floral installation.
Jessie loved the idea of incorporating tons of wedding greenery into the classic color pallet she chose. The fresh greenery looked awesome with the mint bridesmaid’s dresses and napkins, a boxwood champaign wall, and all of the warm tones of the venue’s wooden & brick interior. We loved how the floating greenery installation turned out for the ceremony. And, the couple decided to flip the 4th floor ceremony into the reception layout during the cocktail hour. So, they even got to repurpose the floating greenery around the cake table. How perfect!
Using eucalyptus greenery in wedding flowers is extremely popular right now. We do a ton of weddings with it each year, and our brides love the muted blue-ish green tones of the greenery. I personally love mixing a few different types of eucalyptus with some more green foliage like ruscus or nagi. But, some brides love just eucalyptus for the greenery in their bouquets and floral arrangements. However, not all eucalyptus is the same. There are several different varieties that we love using for different reasons.
Below, I’ll show you the most common types of eucalyptus, and how they look used in bouquets or other wedding floral elements.
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.
Planning a wedding in 2020 was no easy task. When Emily contacted us about her big day, Covid-19 shut downs were in full swing. She shared with me that they had booked the Waterhouse Pavillion in downtown Chattanooga, for it’s open-air and Covid-safe features. She explained that her and her fiance Jaren had decided that they would move forward with planning their wedding whether it included 100+ people or 10. They just knew that on September 12th, they were getting married no matter what!
I just love every single detail of this Fall wedding we recently did at the Turnbull Building in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. From the boho flowers to the vintage details and warm tones, the Turnbull was the perfect setting! This industrial style wedding venue has been a long time favorite of ours for so many reasons. The restored historic building features an abundance of natural light, hardwood floors, exposed brick and original wood beams.

Several years ago when my sister got engaged, they chose a moissanite engagement ring instead of a diamond. At that point, I had never heard of this stone, and knew nothing about the conflict in the diamond industry. When I first saw her ring in person, I thought it looked exactly like a diamond and didn’t notice any difference at all. The stone had all the beauty and clarity I was used to seeing in a diamond, and I was truly impressed with it’s stunning sparkle-factor!
I am a wedding florist in Chattanooga, Tennessee, so I interact with a ton of brides each year. And since my first interaction with moissanite years ago, many of my clients have chosen moissanite. So, I started doing research to find out all the reasons why a couple would choose this alternative stone, and here’s what I found:
Whether you’re planning a micro wedding (A.K.A. intimate wedding) or an elopement, we have some great ideas on how to make your big/small day super special.
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. In 2020, we saw a massive change in the wedding industry due to COVID-19. Many of these couples had already begun planning their larger weddings (150-250 guests), and had to make the very difficult decision to move forward, cancel or postpone. However, now that we have seen how this pandemic-plagued year has progressed, many couples are loving the idea of a smaller “micro” wedding to decrease the risk of having to make such difficult decisions about their wedding day.
