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.

Pretty in Pink Wedding with Rustic Touches at the University Club

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.

Blush colors for a romantic look

Soft and romantic….those were the words our bride, Elizabeth Lombardino expressed for the look she wanted for her wedding at the Factory. We used lush garden roses, astilbe,dusty miller and mini callas in the bouquets. Thanks to Andrea Hallgren for the fantastic photos! Also a big thanks to Suzanne Jeffers, owner of Belle Events for planning another beautiful wedding.

Classy and Elegant Wedding

Our beautiful bride, Taylor Mosely, posing above with her lovely bridesmaids at Scarritt Wrightman Chapel, just prior to her walk down the aisle. Taylor chose a pretty shade of purple for her bridesmaids. We brought in a touch of that color in Taylor’s bouquet by using white cymbidium orchids, that have a purple “throat”. Very classy and elegant to be sure. Don’t you love her little flower girl?

Thanks to Cali Ashton Photography for these! Also thanks to Taylor’s fabulous wedding planner, Suzanne
