What can we say… we are a sucker when it comes to orchids (who isn’t, really?). So when you are asked to work with some of Nashville’s best wedding vendors to bring a super sweet bride’s dream to life, we were stoked. Lindsey and Zach’s big day was definitely a show stopper with a bridal bouquet of white phalaenopsis orchids, accented by a reception filled with dendrobium orchids (so many, we finally lost count!). Using the already dramatic backdrop of the War Memorial Auditorium and the keen design eye of Nashville wedding planner, Angela Proffitt, the final look was over-the-top, take your breath away, spectacular. We even suspended a 4-teir wedding cake by Jay Qualls on the stage of the auditorium… the couple loved it, the guests were wowed and we were so honor to be apart of this special wedding!
The gorgeous pictures below are from pro wedding photographer, Laurie Carpenter. You can see more pictures of Lindsey and Zach’s wedding here but be sure to also check out Laurie’s website… her work is amazing. So happy were could be a part of this one… who’s going to be our next dream wedding? 🙂
With Spring in full bloom, many of us are happily putting Old Man Winter’s dark and cold days behind us. That is until you see these stunning wedding pictures from Stephanie and Josh’s white winter Nashville wedding at the Loveless Barn. Maybe it’s the photographer, maybe it’s the happy couple, maybe it’s the gorgeous all white bridal bouquet… sometimes we even surprise ourselves. We hate to boost, but the images captured by the very talented Angela Disrud are simply breathtaking.
Stephanie’s bouquet is a mix of white hydrangea, gardenias, and stephanotis, accented by silver brunia. Together the blooms create the perfect winter wedding look, which we carried to in part to the bridemaids’ bouquets and Josh’s boutonniere. We love white for all seasons and can easily swap elements of this look to fit other seasons. If you are a fan of white wedding flowers you’re not alone as this is proving to be a hot trend for 2012 and we look forward to creating amazing looks like this one for our brides and grooms to come! Best wishes to both Stephanie and Josh… great to work with you both 🙂
Kate’s royal wedding last spring was guaranteed to set future wedding trends. One of our favs for 2012 is all-white weddings… such a glamorous, elegant and timeless look. This trend started to take hold in immediate following the British nupitials as many of our brides opted for gorgeous all-white bridal bouquets of peonies, orchids or roses and 2012 promises many more white weddings. Keep your venue and style of wedding in mind when putting together your all-white color palette… with so many shades of white and great matching neutrals (like silver or beige) to tie everything together the options are endless and can have very different results.
Brides on a budget will want to think in season when choosing flowers (tulips in the spring) but more popular flowers like roses and even carnations are available year round but if you are looking for wow-factor, white full peonies are the way to go. Consider adding ostrich feathers, your mother’s favorite brooch or other non-organic pieces for texture (and a personal touch). Even the slightest pop of color can work to enhance the all white feel (take the yellow or added greenery above, for example). Can’t wait to share many of the white weddings we have in the works for this year… Until then we would love to talk with about your ideas for an all white wedding. Feel free to leave your comments/questions below or contact us here.
Big thanks as always to all the great photographers that send me these pictures… including The Collection, Adele Reding, Phindy Studios, ImageTrick, Divine Images, and lots more! If I missed you, please leave a comment and I will be sure to add your credit 🙂
We really stepped outside our comfort zone a few weeks ago, creating a entirely new look for the Nashville Pink Bridal Show… one entirely devoid of color. The end result was an all white show-booth taking our urban chic concept and infusing it with tropical florals, greenery and a little bling. Our team really knocked this one out of the park (though I had total confidence that they would!), bringing to life an amazing display full of great wedding inspiration. Brides at the show loved the end result and we wanted to share the pictures we captured with you. While this uses tropical blooms (like orchids), many of the techniques can be used to style a similar look for your wedding using the colors, theme and wedding flowers of your choosing. Have other questions or feedback? We love comments… leave one by clicking the link at the top of the post 🙂
Also, mark your calendar for our next Nashville bridal show… the Perfect Wedding Guide Show at the Gaylord Opryland Resort on February 5th… we will have a whole new booth and lots of wedding inspiration. Stay tuned for our preview next week!
