Burgundy Brewery Casual Winter Wedding

I love winter weddings!  When my friend Alicia asked me to do her bridal party flowers, I jumped at the chance!  They had a suckling pig pull for the reception at a brewery... I wish I was half that cool when I got married 10 years ago.  Their laid back style was such a joy throughout the entire planning process and I loved how the flowers turned out.  The contrast in her color palette and her sweet fur shrug...  She is glowing!  And did I mention we share the same name? We're both "lish".  

Her photographer was Emily Sacra Photography and she did a fab job!  

Please disregard my CHICKEN SCRATCH for handwriting. I had a stencil when I was in 1st grade to help me write, y'all. I still need it.

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!

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!
