Yeah! Summer is officially here (well, it’s not techinically June 21 but close enough for us!). This time of year, Team Enchanted is busy, busy, busy creating wedding flowers for our beautiful brides. Many embrace a long standing trend in summer weddings – a bright and colorful bridal bouquet. Today we are sharing some favorite inspiration from past weddings 🙂
As a summer bride you’ll be looking for bright and colorful blooms to create a fun, youthful, and exciting wedding. Keep in mind that just because you’re using bright colors doesn’t mean you can’t mix and match. If you’re not too keen on all that color you can mix in a more muted palette and keep a single bold color, like a bright pink or dark purple. Mixing different colors will get totally different and awesome results. Use cool colors (like blues) for a softer romantic tone, or warm true colors (full reds or yellows) for a lively and electric feel. One of the best parts of using bright colors is that they go with almost any venue or style that you dream of having. We’d love to talk to you more about making your dreams come true, and we can’t wait to bring your bright, bold look to life.

We’ve been noticing that outdoor weddings are becoming increasingly more popular, and we wanted to show off a few of our recent favorites from some of the best photographers in the city. Even though you’re thinking about the outdoors for your wedding, that doesn’t mean you have to be limited to just “rustic” or “farm” weddings. The weddings we’re showing off stylistically encompass everything from Black & White Elegant to White & Classic to Rustic Farm and everything in between! These pictures are all great examples to show case just how much you can do with your Outdoor Wedding. Your imagination is the limit, and as always we are here to help you determine what will work best for you, and the venue, so please don’t hesitate to send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a consultation. We’re so excited about bringing your vision to life!

You are pretty lucky if you can host a wedding at Legacy Farms during their busy fall months… the rustic buildings, changing leaves on the surrounding trees, and the short drive out to Lebanon takes one just far enough away from the city to breath in sweet county air necessary for a perfect Fall wedding. Lindsay & Christen’s were indeed one of the lucky ones, celebrating their October nuptials with friends and family at Legacy Farms. Their vision used classic fall elements like pumpkins and warm rich colors, but then we punched things up mixing in the texture sharpness of blue thistle, tropical orchids, and green sunflowers. Apart, these contrasting fragments may not make much sense, but together – WOW!
Erin Lee of the The Collection shot the pictures you see below and as usual she did not disappoint. Capturing both the warmth and love of the couple and their guests, she has an uncanny knack to photograph detail from a unique and fresh perspective (plus she’s a doll to work with). We are fans to say the least.
Congratulations to the newlyweds – thank you for letting us share in your special day and bring your beautiful vision to life. Wishing you many, many happy years ahead 🙂

Every bride and groom starts with a vision… for Mallory and Corey rustic romance was the perfect theme for their Southall Eden wedding. Not only did the couple have a unique vision but they assembled quite the team of wedding professionals from the Nashville area. Of course there was Shannon from Southall Eden as well as Meredith with Bridal Blueprints – with both behind the scenes you sort of knew Mallory and Corey’s weddings was going to be one for the books. For florals, we mixed classic elements with bold color choices and dramatic textures resulting in bouquets, boutonnieres and reception centerpieces that were truly unique and gorgeous! Add Josh and Amber of Nashville’s Ulmer Studios and their indie style of photography to the mix and an already breathtaking wedding is forever captured as such on film.
Check out Southall Eden’s blog for more brilliant images of Mallory and Corey’s wedding day. Best wishes to you both… we so enjoyed sharing in such a special day and know you will have many happy years ahead. Congratulations! 🙂

Okay, we have a really good one for you today 🙂 It was one of the team’s favorites of this past fall, combing delicious colors and textures (including succulents!) for Corey and Jason’s early fall wedding at Legacy Farms. The end result was nothing short of stunning. The bride’s amazing bouquet showcases succulents, hydrangea, thistle, billy balls and lilies all in shades of dusty blue with pops of yellow and white. Rustic details could be found everywhere, including their birch tree inspired wedding cake – studded with succulents!
On top of everything, we have the superb photos by Jenny Lindsey Photography to relive this gorgeous wedding again and again. You can all see more images from Corey and Jason’s special day on the Wedding Wire Blog and be sure to also visit Jenny’s website – her talent is jaw dropping. Such a wonderfully lovely couple – we so enjoyed bringing your awesome vision to life and taking part in such a special day. Biggest congrats to you both and may you have many happy years ahead.

All right folks – today we have a swooner for you… we are so excited to share Chantel and Erich’s gorgeous Southern wedding at CJ’s Off the Square. This fun-loving couple was a blast to work with as we got creative with their flowers, keeping the color palette muted and simple while adding textures accents of dried wheat, succulents and baby’s breath. Burlap, paper pinwheels, chalk boards and mason jars bring everything together for an end result that is fresh, creative and romantic… all with a good dose of Southern charm. What can we say – love it!
Brandon Chesbro took the most awesome pictures of their wedding… his talent is really remarkable. Check out his website for more of his work or you can visit CJ’s blog for more pictures of Chantel and Erich’s big day. Congrats to the happy couple… wishing you many blissful years ahead 🙂
