Stephanie & Jarrett – The Bradford Estate

Stephanie was so much fun to work with. Her designs definitely reflected her sweet personality. Stephanie loved succulents, so we added a few into her mix of hydrangea, roses, tea roses, eucalyptus, and sweet touches of silver brunia pods. She rented our “Welcome to our wedding” chalk sign, which added a cute personalized touch to their ceremony entrance. We couldn’t of imagined a happier couple, and we wish them all the best!

Paige & Derek – Sea Isle Yacht Club

Paige had a beautiful garden vision for her day at the beach. We used hydrangea, roses, tea roses and lots of draping eucalyptus! The centerpieces were so fun to make, we had a variety of vases, footed bowls and tall fluted vases. The mixed designs really created a fun garden mix, accented with rustic wood slices. We love this design style that is simple, beautiful and timeless.

Quinn & Brian -Franklin Institute

Franklin Institute- Frog Commissary Catering

Quinn & Brian had gorgeous weather for a rooftop ceremony overlooking the city sky.  The Franklin Institute is a truly unique event space. Quinn loved classic white flowers, hydrangea, tea roses, garden roses, dahlias and snapdragons but she wanted to add lots of texture with greens, thistles and plum tones. The centerpieces vases were mixed metals, mercury, gold and silver to add interest to the room.
