Peaches and Cream North Carolina Wedding

I’ve been waiting for these photos to come in and they’re every bit as dreamy as I hoped the would be! This breezy October evening was filled with the sweetest moments between friends and family celebrating the love of one of my favorite bride and grooms, Baili and Seth. They’re so smitten with each other it’s contagious and they had a beautiful ceremony in a large open field with nothing but a cross and the support of their loved ones behind them. And a tree. There was tree.

David and Sarah did just a flat out amazing job with these photos so you have to check out their work if you’re on the photographer hunt. And the venue was spacious and the perfect blend of an outdoor tent meets barn vibe, so check out Summerfield Farms.

Romantic Winter Elopement

organic whimsical wedding flowers elopement

When one of your favorite photographer friends asks you to make a bouquet for an elopement, you jump on it!  And that's exactly what I did when Kelsey from the duo, Kelsey & Nate asked me to make a bouquet for a secret elopement.  

There wasn't a lot to choose from locally in the dead of winter, but that didn't hold me back!  Yes, even in the winter you can have beautiful, bold flowers that add texture, color, and interest to your wedding photos!

So here's the question, if you were to elope, do you think splurging on a bouquet like this is a good idea?

Let us know what you think!  

Special thanks to Kelsey & Nate for the amazing photos, as always!

Most of our brides spend an average of $2500-$4500 on wedding flowers and we have a $1,000 minimum.  

 

We can also focus on greenery for brides who love the bohemian style and provide a full wedding of flowers for $1500 if you are inspired by this design (like the bouquet seen in this picture).

 

I hope this helps when planning for wedding flowers and sticking to your wedding budget!  The bride in the example above will have plenty of room to include the flowers she wants in her wedding and her flowers will be spectacular within the above budget (like our Fall 2017 Wedding Flower Inspiration).  Just remember, this is only an example, but use it as a guide to plan for your wedding flowers.

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!
