South Jersey Wedding Florist : Rachael & Korey at Pratt Gardens

Pratt Gardens is one of our favorite gems in Salem County.  Peter, owner and resident of Pratt Gardens, has opened his home to share his beautiful property with those who appreciate the wonders that nature can offer.   The gardens have hosted a number of nature-lovers in the community, from photographers and artists searching for inspiration to weekly yoga sessions by Bee Inspired Yoga.

With its quiet reputation for lush landscaping and freedom of design, it's no wonder Rachael and Korey decided to be married at Pratt Gardens this past May.  The endlessly talented Tina Jay Photography documented the couple's wedding day flawlessly, and we are overjoyed to share these images with you.

Enjoy!

Before heading over to the ceremony, Rachael snuck in a few shots with her horse, Stormy, at her grandmother's house.  What a great call, because these are stunning!!

The picture of bridal beauty!  Rachael's bouquet was made of pale pink garden roses, white lilac, white freesia, lavender sweet pea, tulips, and white peonies for this delicate and sweet design.

There are a few different ceremony options at Pratt Gardens, and we loved Rachael and Korey's decision to really enhance the gazebo.  We accented the archway with a huge garland of mixed blooms, with hydrangeas, peonies, tulips and roses.  One of Rachael's favorite flowers was tulips, how fitting that they were all blooming around the gazebo for their ceremony!

High top tables were scattered through the cocktail area, giving a nice pop to the space.  We used our silver mercury vases with lisianthus and blue hydrangea to dress them up a bit.

Blue hydrangea, freesia, tulips and garden roses in our silver damask vases made up these low centerpieces.  We just love the color scheme here!  Our silver wooden table numbers are great for helping guests find their seats while still being aesthetically pleasing.
