As Lana pulled up to the Bramble Tree Estate that November day in 2017, she was anxious to get designing. Not only did she have beautiful, unique pieces with her that Megan and Kevin had purchased themselves, but she had luck on her side when going to the floral market. Her inventory included a plethora of rich reds, delicate pinks, and the most stunning hanging amaranthus she had ever seen - all waiting to create the perfect upscale, rustic, and vintage look.
It would be a wedding design dream - both for her and for the couple.
The flowers weren’t to be wildly extravagant and ornate. They were to create the feeling of soft, vintage-inspired chicness in a spectacular country estate setting. But even though the flowers weren’t to be overdone, it did not mean they would be understated.
Rather, the flower design Lana would create would perfectly fit into the environment the couple selected. It would have an elegant abundance like no other.
The selected color palette, choice of flowers, design freedom Megan and Kevin provided Lana, and the collaboration with The Busy Bee Events and Design would prove to be the perfect combination for a wedding that would wow.
Without the bride knowing the bouquets would be adorned with hanging burgundy amaranthus, Lana made sure to have a plan to remove it if need be. However, it wasn’t needed as Megan was absolutely crazy about how beautiful the bouquets were.
Her trust in Lana had reaped its rewards and in effect, she and her bridesmaids carried one-of-a-kind designs that were standout pieces throughout the day.
Megan and Kevin were deeply involved in the planning of their wedding and purchased a black wrought iron arch for their ceremony. After brainstorming with Lana, the arch would be painted gold and accentuated with whimsical greenery and flowers, creating an eye-catching vintage elegance in a country chic setting.
Unique details at the ceremony made a big impression in creating the overall feel of the day. Light greenery attached to garden ceremony chairs, floral highlighting a welcome sign and table, and living room vignettes complete with complementing floral filled the day with the utmost sophistication and romance.
Continuing to awe guests, a lighted tent with varying tables was the perfect setting for dinner. Because the ambience of the tent on the impeccable grounds was so charming, the flowers were designed to highlight the brilliant color palette of red, burgundy, and pink in long rows and amongst candlelight to make a graceful impact.
In addition, a distinct cake table was the culminating piece of the reception. Displayed on an antique dresser with florals and greenery gently placed in slightly opened drawers, this piece was a draw for everyone. We particularly admire how the simple cake became glamorous in such a creative design space.
Megan and Kevin’s wedding was a true testament to the concept of utilizing unique, bold colors and flowers to make a stunning impact. By giving Lana the creative freedom and flexibility to design from the inspiration they gave her, their wedding was simply inspirational.
