For the Love of Flowers: Jenna and Stephen’s Stunning Soiree

January 12, 2019

There is no denying it…Jenna loves flowers.  And pairing that love with the love her and Stephen share was nothing short of magical when it came to their wedding on January 12, 2019 at The Alfond Inn.

The couple, who met in dental school and share a new practice, knew from the start that they envisioned a timeless, clean, yet modern look. It would be all white flowers with no greenery.

Lana and their wedding planner, Andrea Grier of Weddings Unique, knew it would turn out to be the perfect choice for their garden backdrop as the white contrast within the greens of nature would be breathtaking.

And it was.

Jenna and Stephen’s ceremony design was dramatic.  The women all carried lush complementing bouquets to accenting the overall look. Large planters filled with tightly packed white hydrangea welcomed guests at the beginning of the aisle and a large square arch at the altar with matching packed white hydrangea and roses was the piece de resistance - the perfect structure under which to say “I do!”

This structure was a quite a feat for the Fairbanks Florist team and one which would only get more purpose as the wedding continued.  Designed to be taken apart in three sections, this skillful design allowed the square arch to be transitioned into the ballroom for the reception.  

Boasting itself behind the sweetheart table and providing an exquisite vignette for the wedding cake, this hydrangea-packed arch donned hanging crystals and candles with romantic drapery created behind it by Swag Decor for the reception - a complete wow for the couple and the guests!

To complement this jewel of the reception, tablescapes consisted of white hydrangea and roses, uniquely detailed glass and candle pieces, as well as mirrors and crystals to give just the right amount of sparkle.  

The overall look was sleek, buttoned-up, and modern - yet, it all has a classic feel that will be awed for years to come.

Grand and Gorgeous: Lindsay and Dustin’s New Year’s Eve Wedding

December 31, 2017

There’s nothing that celebrates love quite like a New Year’s Eve wedding and Lindsay and Dustin’s Tuscawilla private home affair did just that.

As the sun shone perfectly through the trees that last day of 2017, the setting was perfect for a ceremony under a family-made wood arch that Lana accented with roses, hydrangea, and olive tree branches. Lindsay carried a complementing bouquet with muted soft tones and Dustin donned a matching boutonniere.

When day turned to dusk, guests retreated inside where the main living space had evolved into a reception for royalty. A variety of roman, circular, and square tables filled the room in which layers of design materials graced each one. Some tables boasted eucalyptus garland with rhinestones, pandora vine, and olive branches while others showcased a beautiful arrangement of smilax vines, dusty miller, wax flower, lisianthus, quick sand roses and hydrangeas in blush tones.

But no New Year’s Eve wedding is complete without a little sparkle - and the mercury glass candle holders, gold glitter tablecloths, and gold beaded chargers added the perfect touch to the dazzling wintery look.

As the new year drew closer, guests danced the night away around the outdoor pool in which Fairbanks Florist gave a glowing feel with fairy-light filled lanterns and greenery garlands with twinkle lights that surrounded the pool.

It was a new year’s that welcomed 2018 with love and happiness - and one that will not be forgotten.

The Air of Romance: Julianne and Garrett’s Isleworth Country Club Wedding

April 14, 2018

If there is one thing that we remember about Julianne and Garrett’s April wedding at Isleworth Country Club, it’s the sweet romance that filled the air from dawn to dusk. Julianne and Garrett chose a pink, ivory, and natural greenery palette that Lana created a design board for - inclusive of open garden roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. Julianne’s handtied bridal bouquet was filled with pink garden roses and peonies accented with loose greenery for a soft touch. Julianne’s Bridesmaids wore blush pink dresses and carried smaller versions of Julianne’s bouquet. The Bridesmaids also wore delicate floral halos - perfect for the outdoor garden ceremony!

Stunning blooms on grand pedestals and a framed welcome mirror greeted guests as they took their seats along the rose petal aisle for the ceremony under a gold wrought iron arch adorned with flowers and greenery. After the vows, Lana and her team redesigned the ceremony flowers to bring the beauty inside. A lush sweetheart table splashed in pink light and surrounded by the garden flowers with greenery accents made a stunning impact in front of the fireplace. The mantle was adorned with candles and a custom faux botanical monogram which the couple commissioned for their home after the wedding.

Planned and coordinated by Michele Butler, from Michele Butler Events, the wedding was exceptionally prepared and executed - making for a wedding day that “was the moment of our lives,” says Julianne. Even though the day was warm, everyone stayed calm and cool - primarily because of the extraordinary planning and efforts of Michele. Michele is a consummate professional and remains joyful and positive throughout the entire pre-planning and day-of coordination process. It is truly a delight to work with her as she makes it seamless for a vendor (such as ourselves) to do our best work.

When it comes to romance, it doesn’t get much better than a couple that is as beautiful inside as they are on the outside, add in a beautiful ceremony overlooking the lake, highlighted by soft pink hues and lush arrangements and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a romantic wedding!
