A Garden Fantasy: Jenna and Lee’s Romantic Day

January 13, 2019

One may think that designing a gorgeous wedding day must consist of interviewing a variety of floral designers, scheduling a plethora of meetings throughout the planning process, looking over multiple mock-ups, and then selecting the exact flowers and look for the day.

Sometimes, that is true.

And sometimes, it is not.

When it came to planning the floral romance and swagger of Jenna and Lee’s most special day at Bella Collina, it was anything but conventional. And it made all the difference.

After receiving a rave referral from a friend, browsing over top reviews, and loving the pictures online, the sister of the groom called Fairbanks Florist and booked Lana and her team without Jenna and Lee even meeting her!

Throughout the planning process, Jenna sent Lana inspirational concepts via photos and Lana then interpreted the concepts into a unique look just for them - without meeting or speaking with each other until the week before the wedding.

It may seem surprising to some not to meet with your wedding florist until the day of your wedding, but because Jenna and Lee trusted Lana to select the best quality flowers available and create a design that was inspired by their likes, but yet distinctly their own, Lana was able to make exquisite floral arrangements that exceeded all their expectations.

The bridal and bridesmaid bouquets consisted of white anemones with rich navy hued middles, burgundy scabiosa, seeded eucalyptus, smilax, Brazilian berries, and roses. They were whimsical garden bouquets with delicate pops of stunning color. The groom and groomsmen donned white rose boutonnieres.

For the ceremony, two large garden arrangements consisting of antique green hydrangea, smilax, roses, lisianthus, Italian ruscus, eucalyptus, and dusty miller created a beautiful altar area.

A variety of round and rectangular reception tables held lush garlands of greens with white roses interlaced throughout and the sweetheart table was absolutely breathtaking with the ceremony arrangements on either side, dripping garland on the table, candlelight and gold accents. Complementing the bridal bouquet, the cake showcased delicate decor. The reception simply glowed throughout the garden as guests dined among the candlelight. It was a night to remember.

This wedding was the epitome of romance and to imagine…not one in-person meeting to make it all happen! We think that adds to the magic of it all.
