Coral and Pink and the Symphony Center

We had the pleasure to work with the Premier W.E.D. team to produce the florals for a fantastic wedding at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Ceremony was held in the lobby, with seated dinner on the main floor of the Symphony Hall. Ceremony colors were kept all white, with corals and pinks and whites on the dinner tables.

Party at the Marriott Vanderbilt

One of our events this year was to provide florals for an event for Marriott Vanderbilt. They invited industry professionals to come see the new renovations there. Thanks to Details Nashville for providing the photos! Glitz and Glam was the theme…so we used our glass pedestals topped with battery lamps..our large glass urns, gold containers,etc. to pull of this look.

Wedding at Home

Jessica and Jon opted to have their wedding at the home of her parents..using the front yard with a tent for the ceremony, the driveway with a tent for the reception, and the pool area for cocktails. The weather was cooperative for the ceremony and cocktail hour, but then the heavens opened up and a deluge of rain fell during the evening………but that did not deter the party…they had a wonderful time. We so enjoyed working with this couple. Thanks to Jen & Chris Creed Photography for the photos! Jessica wanted the softest of blush colors in roses, stock,etc. and our mercury glass containers and antique white lanterns…soft and romantic. We added fresh florals to the iron arch the bride had rented from Liberty Party, to make a romantic ceremony look. Isn’t the flower girl too precious for words? She loved loved wearing the halo of baby’s breath we made for her…and still had it on at the end of the night!

On the Family Farm

One of our fall weddings was so laid back and happy on the family owned farm. LOVED the birch arbor that the groom and his father built, which we decorated with fresh florals and greens. Lots of white pumpkins and vintage containers were used in the decor as well. The tree that is in the bucket will be planted in the new Mr. and Mrs. Bell’s yard…it was a memorial for the bride’s mother who passed away. So sweet and sentimental.branching out hoyal wedding ceremony branching out hoyal wedding arch

Fall Farm Wedding

Enjoy the photos below from a wonderful fall wedding. The location was Lilac Farms in Arrington, Tennessee. Due to inclement weather that day, the ceremony had to be moved inside…but still turned out great. The cross was built by the bride’s father, and made such a significant impact. Kelsey, the bride, wanted lots of sunflowers for her decor…such a happy flower!

Rich Colors Warehouse Event

We recently participated in a style shoot with Jewels Photography using rich colors of teal, gold, green and purple. The location was Cannery One, which is a wonderful warehouse look venue. We wanted to bring in gold containers to compliment the color scheme, along with peacock feathers as touches.

Nashville’s Pink Bride Show

Branching Out Floral booth August Pink Bride Show

Branching Out Floral booth August Pink Bride Show

We were delighted with the turnout Sunday August 24 for The Pink Bride Bridal show in Nashville. Thank you to all the lovely brides who stopped by our booth for a chat, to ask questions and to book appointments for their upcoming weddings! We look forward to working with you! Thanks to my great team for their talent in making our small booth a delight for the floral senses!

Contemporary Opulent Event

Orchids, orchids, orchids…….love them for their beauty and simplistic design. Featured below are some shots of a recent event we designed

for  Vanderbilt University. Clusters of white phal orchids and white hydrangea in our mercury glass cylinders, with varying heights of candles

to give a glowing effect to the room. Draping by Visual Elements, lighting by Tech Works, rentals from Liberty Party rental and fabulous food

by Clean Plate Club combined to make a magical evening. This look was for a corporate event, but would also be stunning for a wedding.

Love the paper mache palm trees!

Pretty in Pink Spring Wedding in Nashville

When Kelly Cordelli came to us to discuss her florals for her upcoming wedding to Bert Hoover, she told us she is a “Pink” girl….and boy did

she mean it! Kelly loves the color pink and wanted her flowers and linens to reflect that fact. She also wanted touches of gold, along with silver

mercury glass. We worked together to come up with lush designs of pink hydrangea, shades of pink garden roses, pink lillies, pink orchids and

other garden flowers to reflect her style. The pink wreaths on the doors were used first at the church, which was Woodmont Christian in

Nashville, and then moved to the doors of Richland Country Club for a seated dinner and much dancing to a hot band! Hope you enjoy a few of

these photos (taken with my cell phone no less) as much as we enjoyed working with Kelly.
