Louis + Delta were our first wedding of the year in January. We loved that they chose lush winter whites and reds, especially those orchids cascading down the wedding cake! We also loved our first opportunity to work at The Mandarin Oriental and what a gorgeous venue it was. They incorporated their sweet girl pup to be included in the wedding ceremony for a little flair and everyone could not stop talking about how cute she was in her little tutu!

The Art of Love Styled Shoot

(Photography by: Lindsey LaRue)

The morning of a wedding can be the most precious time for the bride to connect with her family and friends. So when Melissa, founder of eMBee Events, came to Bloomin’ with the The Art of Love styled shoot we fell in love with her idea to draw focus to these special moments. The shoot was an intimate look into the brides morning before she takes her vows. The bride’s bouquet consisted of soft ivories, pinks, and greenery with pops of cabernet. Our bridesmaids bouquets were a reflection of their individual necklaces, given to them by the bride, to show her appreciation for their support in the past, that day, and the years to come. Each bridesmaid wore a different element. Basil, symbolizing love; Carrot, health; Chili Pepper, strength; and Olive, peace. While incorporating the elements into the bouquets proved to be a challenge we loved what each element symbolized and were thrilled to be a part of such a special shoot.

Spring Foraging Workshop

I’ve been working in the wedding industry for a grand total of five years now. More specifically, working with flowers for two and I’m sorry to say that I had not attended a workshop until this past month. Terrible, I know. In my defense I’ve been focused on the task at hand rather than committing the extra time to networking and learning ventures such as workshops. Nevertheless, Amanda Jewel’s Spring Foraging Workshop opened my eyes to a whole new facet of the creative industry that I was obviously missing out on.  

Amanda grew up on a farm and is simply inspired by nature. She’s been designing flowers since high school and more recently has opened the most mesmerizing studio in Tucker, where her workshop was held. The friends of Johns Park Homestead and Amanda Jewel Floral Design collaborated to host the forging workshop. I asked Amanda what her vision was for the workshop and this is what she said, “I want people to be confident in creating their own masterpiece. It doesn't take skill but it really just takes a whole lot of confidence. My goal is to teach people confidence and knowledge of what is in their own backyard.” 

After spending the first part of the workshop foraging, gathering and creating, we wrapped up the afternoon back at the studio. We ooh'd and ah'd over what Amanda and her team have done with their studio space, nibbling on cheese and crackers, and chatting with other flower lovers. After I left I couldn't stop thinking about the day. I felt very inspired, I made a beautiful spring arrangement, I learned about new foliage, and met some very cool people. Thank you to Amanda Jewel Floral Design for being a huge inspiration and inviting me to my first flower workshop. It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday.

We were not surprised, but overjoyed to see Drew + Alex's Swan House wedding featured in the February issue of Modern Luxury. Alex had a beautiful eye for the designs she wanted and the colors she chose. We kept things elegant yet modern with ivory tones complimented with rose gold touches. We loved streaming orchids down the cake tiers as well as the brides bouquet. Pick up a copy of Modern Luxury's February issue before they are all gone to see more stunning photos!

Grant + Jessica

Grant + Jessica had a simple winter wedding at Little River Farms. We loved the combination of Red Campanella Roses with the blush tones of Rose Quicksand and hanging pepper berry for Jessica's bridal bouquet. We just cannot seem to get over the winter reds in bouquets...and we are okay with that because it is always beautiful. (Check out that amazingly large bridal party!)

Matt + Kaitlyn

Matt + Kaitlyn had a rustic wedding at The Foundry. Kaitlyn's vision was to bring the outdoors in for this November wedding. She wanted a woodsy, yet elegant aesthetic in this natural light filled venue. The couple had the arbor custom built and wood stumps that were used throughout the ceremony and reception covered in moss. We loved incorporating the dark red hues of the amaryllis, dahlias and draping pepper berry. Some of our very favorite color combinations for a late fall wedding.

What an honor to have this very special wedding featured over on The Celebration Society. Sarah's bouquet is quite possibly one of our very favorites of all time. We of course love Summerour and you will not want to miss looking at more photos and the description from this wedding (including the absolutely best vendor list in Atlanta!)
