BoldKristen McDonald from Blush by Brandee Gaar introduced me to Tracy Jenkins. One of my six weddings for the May 2nd weekend. Tracy had one goal for her wedding, to create a Southern wedding that was so individual and elegant that Southern Weddings Magazine would pick up her wedding for publishing. Good Luck Tracy, I hope our designs will assist you in making your dream wedding more dreamy. When I first sat down with Tracy I had no idea what was in store. I thought maybe you'll have to drag me by a leash (as evident above). Just kidding, couldn't pass up a pink collar and leash photo op. We often create one or two designs for a wedding. We often use client's containers to create these designs in. Well a mix of her containers, her accessories, our containers and at least 20 individual designs made for a wedding that surely can't be passed up by Southern Weddings Magazine. Janice (one of our fabulous designers at GP) and I worked together in creating the designs you see below. Thanks Janice for a remarkable interpretation of a southern wedding. The bride carried a pink peony and champagne colored rose bouquet with rhinestone handle embellishments. There is nothing more southern than ivory hydrangea which is what the female attendants carried.
Tracy made her own runners, provided the votive holders, chargers and crystal chandelier atop the thick cut cylinder vase.
Our signature 28" palace vase with antique green hydrangea, deep pink spray roses and white dendrobium orchid sprays arranged atop a crystal chandelier.
The beautiful Cypress Grove Park was the ideal backdrop for the wedding reception.
I don't often use carnations and baby's breath, but when designed properly, the flowers take on a whole new light. Our aged gold candle sticks are complimented by a low centerpiece of roses and spray roses in multiple pink & ivory shades.
This is probably my favorite design with spray roses and baby's breath designed atop our aged gold candles sticks. The table announcement was pictures of their black labs. The party favor was a suggestion to make a donation to your local Humane Society. The napkins were tied with gold tassels and accented with white ostrich plumes.
The white arbor was dressed with white fabric. A 6 foot arrangement flanked the post created with hydrangea, roses, delphinium and natural greenery. These were later moved to flank the sweetheart table.
Thanks again Kristen and Tracy for the opportunity. It was such a wonderful experience to participate in your very special day.
