Sneak Peek of Ashley + Rob’s beautiful Treasury on the Plaza Wedding!
St. Augustine Wedding Vendors (check ’em out on Facebook):
We recently created this lush purple centerpiece for a home-session for a few of our industry friends and just had to share the beauty with you! We actually want to let you in on a little secret too- this lovely arrangement is a mix of real and fake flowers! Gasp! We bet you wouldn’t have known if we didn’t spill the beans. But, we like to give you the truth around here, so there it is!
Our client had a specific color palette in mind (you guessed it, purple + plum) that can sometimes be challenging to create without a little help. See below for the details on what you see!
Fake Floral Choices: purple hydrangea, lime + deep plum/eggplant ranunculus, lavender waxflower
Real Floral Choices: Roses, greenery, thistle, status (the fluffy deep purple-blue filler), aster (the petite purple flower with a yellow center), Alstroemeria (the delicate freckled flower in the same shade as the rose)
Now, we will be the first to say that we always prefer and encourage the real deal. Nothing truly compares to fresh florals. But, sometimes we have to stretch the boundaries a bit to give our clients the visual look they want. So, silk it is!
For Kayla & Jonathan’s winter wedding, it was all about winter white! The couple hosted their ceremony in the courtyard of the Lightner Museum, during the annual Nights of Lights celebration in St. Augustine (this runs from late November to January). We handled their personal flowers for the wedding day.
Bouquets: For the bride, we used a mixture of white garden roses, brunia berries, dusty miller, anemone and stock in a free-form, natural style (what some might refer to as garden style). For the bridesmaids, we used less white and more textures (extra dusty Miller and dried floral for color contrast)
Boutonniere: White spray roses and dusty miller.
