WOW – wedding season has hit and Mary and I have been living in a sea of flowers for weeks! I can’t believe we haven’t done a blog since the beginning of May, and we are going to really try our best to blog at least once a week through the wedding season. We have been making it a point to post little wedding sneak peeks on our facebook, so pop on over there if you need a wedding fix. The past few weeks have been insanely busy, but also so much fun. My sister in law, Torey, is now designing for A Garden Party, and I feel so fortunate that I get to work so closely with my family and friends, doing something I love. It has been so refreshing working side by side with Torey. She brings in so many unique and creative ideas and I know between the three of us, we can accomplish just about anything. It has been amazing to see our business grow, and bringing on a new designer was the next step for us. We are so excited to see what this year is going to bring; so far we are off to an amazing start!
Today I want to share a stunning wedding that we did in February. Leigh Anne was a gorgeous bride and I have been dying to show off these pictures. Leigh Anne and Anthony’s wedding took place at The Westin in Mount Laurel. Their wedding was an elegant black and white affair with touches of blush pink, lots of crystals, ostrich feathers, and candlelight. I always love setting up at The Westin because we usually stay to flip the room after the ceremony, which means I get to hide out and hear the bride and groom’s wedding ceremony Dan Lerro Photography did an amazing job with the photos, check them out for yourself.
Mary did an amazing job with Leigh Anne’s bouquet. The bouquet featured white peonies, tulips, anemone, cascading white phalaenopsis orchids, strands of blush pink hyacinth florets, and rhinestone studded lily grass and stephanotis.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of white peonies, tulips, and anemone. The junior bridesmaids carried kissing balls of white spray roses. I love that each of the bridesmaids wore a black dress of their choice and the black fur wrap on the flower girl is just darling!
Many times we are set up and gone long before the bride arrives to check out the venue. However, I had the chance to witness Leigh Anne checking out the room prior to the ceremony, and it is moments like this that make this job so worthwhile. Seeing her walk down the aisle and the smile on her face was priceless. We lined the aisle with our wax luminaries filled with blush pink ostrich feathers. The luminaries cast the perfect glow and are ideal for lining an aisle.
On the place card table I used more luminaries filled with white hydrangea, ivory roses, champagne spray roses, and black ostrich feathers.
Here is a close up of the wax luminaries used to line the aisle. I love the feathers!
Half of the tables were done with tall square glass vases accented with a wide band of rhinestone trim. In the vase we submerged white hydrangea and floated a candle. Smaller square wax luminaries accented the tall vase.
I was obsessed with this centerpiece. This was the first time that we used the wax luminaries with a square floral design and I LOVED how it turned out. The luminaries that lined the aisle were moved after the ceremony and placed in the center of the square floral design. We used white hydrangea, white football mums, ivory roses, and spray roses.
I love using scatter crystals…check them out decorating the cake table.

Thank you Leigh Anne and Anthony for letting us be a part of your wedding day. We really enjoyed designing your flowers and wish you both all the best, xoxo!
