A recent wedding at the University Club we did with Courtney Hammons of A Magical Affair had a bit of a rustic look. There was an abundance of flowers and rustic details like birch bark containers, honeysuckle vine and a wrought iron arch to mark the entrance to the dinning room.
Don’t forget, if you need the arch or any of the containers for your wedding or event, just let us know.
One of the newest modern venues in Nashville is the Bridge Building. If you want some great views of downtown with out the hassle of the downtown parking nightmare, this is the place.
It really lends itself to a contemporary look, so that is what we did. Here are just a couple of the grand centerpieces we used to decorate this wedding.
Don’t forget, we have all these containers to use for your event too!
There was so much to love about this wedding. Lovely pastel colors combined with silver to create an elegant look for a tented affair.
Isn’t it amazing the difference that the right container can make? If you are looking for something similar contact me about our huge collection of silver and crystal containers to use for your event.
We were delighted to find the wedding we did for Dean and Shawn featured on the incredible Maharani Weddings. Also thrilling, is that we are not proud to be recognized as Maharani Weddings Platinum Vendors. Click the image to see the entire post. You may also want to read PartII here.
Well……even though the temperature is still in the 90′s, event pros look to the upcoming season and what are the trends. August 16, 2012 was the event sponsored by Perfect Wedding Guide and Cheekwood for the event industry. It was a contest between 3 designers, Branching Out being one of those. Happy to report that we won all the decor divisions, plus Best of Show. We mixed velvet, satin and burlap..along with mercury glass, crystals, birch covered containers, pine cones and deer antlers to give a warm winter’s evening feel. Enjoy!
One of our many beautiful brides this summer season was Bailey Briggs, pictured above. Bailey chose The Governor’s Club as her wedding and reception venue, and a soft color palette. She wanted a romantic southern garden look..as if we had just gone to the garden and cut flowers for the centerpieces. We loved it..and so did Bailey! Enjoy the photos..compliments of Becca YagerPhotography. Thanks, Becca, it was great to work with you.
Purple was our bride, Katie Hoppel’s favorite color..and wow did we use a lot of it. This was a beautiful outdoor wedding held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Snodgrass in Brentwood, Tennessee. The weather was perfect, the bride was beautiful and I think the decor turned out just as she wanted.
These iron centerpiece containers (that belong to us) make a fantastic statement. Katie wanted a wildflower look as the reception s was an outdoor event.
The bride had a fabulous bouquet made from vintage jewelry that she had custom designed and we designed bouquets for her bridesmaids using fresh flowers.
The cupcake stand was custom designed and made by the bride’s father!
A beautiful day for a beautiful couple!
Lara, one of our brides this year, loved the look of a southern wedding and chose Belle Meade Plantation as her location. Her planner, Karen Kaforey of Signature Events, helped her achieve that look, along with our team here at Branching Out. Lara loved the color blue, with accents of black and wanted that expressed in her florals. We used some of our black iron containers to achieve the plantation look.
- I have not painted furniture in several years and I forgot how much work it is! Our other shabby chic pieces came to me already painted/aged and worth every penny!
This buffet piece will be used in a wedding in August as an ALTAR TABLE, as the bride and groom are not having their ceremony in a church, but rather a warehouse venue. Can’t wait to show photos from that one. Another bride has this rented to use as a BAR.
Did you realize that all of our shabby chic decor is available for rent..to brides, florists, planners..even if we are not designing the flowers?
