Good Morning!

We just couldn’t wait to share yesterday’s wedding with you:

 

 

The beautiful outdoor ceremony took place at the Tree of Life in Audubon Park.  We constructed dozens of paper lanterns (thank you Chris!) so that they would ‘spill’ out of the tree, meeting hundreds of ivory rose petals  at the roots of the tree.  Burlap aisle runner decorated with rose petals matched the outdoor setting perfectly.

Along the aisle we set up shepherd’s hooks with ball jars filled with wildflowers.  The limbs of the Tree of Life were strung with more paper lanterns and the natural Spanish Moss that fills the tree year round.

The reception was held at Rosy’s Jazz Hall– a perfectly intimate space with enough room for a stage and dance floor.  On the tables at Rosy’s we topped the tables with ball jars filled with dahlia’s in autumn’s shades, and votive candles in a light blue glass container.

Our bride’s bouquet was filled with roses, tulips and a selection of wildflower.  We wanted this outdoor wedding to reflect the couple’s great energy.  We think this one was a wedding for the books! You can check out more photos of this wedding on our Facebook page.

Hello friends!  Just so you know, since our studio is closed on Mondays, we are one day behind you and today is our Monday.  We’re just getting back from a whirlwind weekend of flowers and photoshoots with new friends.

We had two totally different looks for our weddings; one whimsical at the Rice Mill Lofts and the other inspired by the change of season at Southern Oaks Plantation.

Check out the bouquets below and tell us who is who :)

Then, on Sunday morning we headed over to Mrs. Vintage for a VooDoo photoshoot!  San Francisco photographer Jennifer Michelson of A Girl and A Camera shot our bride, P.S. Creative made some fabby menus and invitations, Mrs. Vintage offered the gorgeous furniture and backdrop and we of course provided the flowers!

Here’s a sneak peak from the shoot

Doesn’t that make the rainy day totally worth it?!  We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!

Hope the rest of you had an excellent weekend.  Will we see you tomorrow at the NOLA Wedding Guide Bridal Extravaganza?!  We’ll be there!

Next week is all about a themeing it up.  We love brides who have refined and traditional taste but sometimes a little wacky is good.  Sometimes a little wacky is great.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. – Mark Twain

In researching themed events this fun Superhero wedding caught our eye.  This couple looks like they really had some fun getting this all together!

We can wait for a bride to come to us with this idea in mind!

Would you do a theme wedding? What kind?!

We wanted to add some photos from the Windsor Court Wedding that was featured in myneworleans.com so you could see a bit more of the summer wedding flowers for our lovely Texas bride.

During setup it was a little bit rainy (see our post about New Orleans rain) but as soon as the wedding began, the clouds parted  and the party got started!

Our bride and her fiancé wanted a soft and classic look so we used tons of pale pink and white roses and hydrangeas.

Mirrored square vases used here reflect the mercury glass votives we dispersed on each table. Candlelight and roses make everything more romantic, don’t you think?

The candleabras that held our centerpieces created a perfect canopy for conversation and dining.

We decided to create this for a bride who is getting married at the Montegut House on Royal Street.  These in the dark alley, perhaps a little taller with a few more votives would be really neat!  The fact that it brings your eye from the ground up is a winner to me.  So often it’s just pillars on the ground, in different heights (which is cool!) but this is being green, utilizing shutters from local homes and recycling unique vases so that there is a cohesive look but it’s not cookie cutter.  (And we can paint the shutters to brighten it up even more… a silver metallic?)  Nice, nice!!!
