Real-Wedding Inspired by Pinterest

I love finding out from our brides how they heard about Petal.  When I met Kelly, I thought she was too good to be to true.  Her story goes that she, like most brides, spent time pinning photos of what she hoped her wedding day would look like and fell in love with one photo on Pinterest. This one to be exact...

She went about her planning and even started doing a little flower designing on her own for fun because she loved this photo so much. 

Then she came across Petal and learned that I (Elisha) had actually made THIS exact arrangement. Crazy!  This never happens.  Like ever. The stars aligned and we were obviously a match made in heaven just sitting in her own backyard. 

We had the chance to work some flower magic for her wedding day at Oak Ridge and we loved how her garden-inspired wedding flowers looked on her wedding day! She was the sweetest Bride and we wanted to share her flower story of working with Petal and a few photos from her wedding day!

Here is an email we received from Kelly after her wedding:  

We absolutely were thrilled with the flowers you designed for us for our wedding. You perfectly understood our vision. The color palette was stunning, the balance and symmetry of the arrangements, and the variety of the flowers selected was better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much for your thoughtful work and for your professional approach that made us feel comfortable and understood. You clearly approach you work both as a craft and as an art.

One of my favorite parts of my wedding day was when Jason and I were riding back in the golf cart to go inside after taking our portraits in the rain. I looked down at my bouquet in my lap, and was stunned that this was my life, in full blown technicolor. The flowers were so perfect, I couldn't even fathom it. I memorized the moment and the way the flowers looked. It was surreal.

The day after our wedding, after all our guests were gone, I looked at the arrangement you did for us that was sitting on our kitchen counter, and I cried that I was so lucky and had a better wedding than I could have imagined. I just kept saying, "those flowers are so beautiful, I can't even believe it!" 

Jason and I have reflected that if we won the lottery, we would want our wedding to be exactly, EXACTLY how it was, and we wouldn't change a thing--except we would have ordered more of your flowers. TONS and tons and tons and tons of your flowers! :D

Truly thank you, and I look forward to following all your future work online!  Thank you so much!

Fall Wedding Flower Inspiration for 2017

I know it's a bit premature but... if you're planning your wedding, more than likely, it's still a few months out.  And with October taking the spot as the official busiest month of the year for weddings, beating out the classics like June & May, I thought I would give the Fall brides some planning inspiration!  

This isn't a photo shoot.

 None of that prissy one table stuff that isn't real-life and completely unaffordable.

 This was one of my favorite weddings from this past Fall.  And when you see the attention paid to the details and the moving color palette,  you'll know why!  Not even a little ol' hurricane could stop this wedding from being a day of celebration, joy, a few tears, and a whole lot of love.  You can tell these are good people and I was incredibly fortunate to be able to work with Jeanie (MOB) and Margaux to create garden-inspired, romantic, flower magic.  I can't wait to hear how you take their wedding and use it to inspire your own falltastic wedding ideas!
