Feature: Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine July/August 2015 Issue

We are thrilled to announce we were recently featured in Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Magazine July/August 2015 Edition! We had a blast creating gorgeous floral pieces to accent this beautiful grand garden wedding inspiration photo shoot with touches of old-world class.

To bring this garden wedding inspiration to life, we designed a beautiful purple bridal bouquet with hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus and hints of greenery. They complemented the purple floral arch we designed for the ceremony scene perfectly. We also created a beautiful purple floral wreath tied with lucky horseshoes and purple ribbons.

Their Story

Bride: Anna Boyd, 23, account coordinator for Dodge Communications

Groom: Houston Hough, 26, research analyst for Equinox Inc.

How They Met: Through Anna’s brother

Wedding Style: Anna and Houston wove shades of mint and gold throughout their elegant Southern affair.

“I came across gold sequin dresses I fell in love with. Before I even asked my friends to be bridesmaids, I texted them asking for their dress sizes and ordered them immediately–praying they would all fit,” Anna says. “Thankfully they did, and they turned out gorgeous!”

The Knot, Lee James Floral Designs, Orlando wedding flowers, page 4

 

Anna and Houston chose an all-white wedding cake finished with a cascade of sugar flowers and their monogram piped on the top tier. “It was delicious!” Anna says of the amaretto, marble and lemon confection. The bride wore a formfitting organza and lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and a crystal-embellished belt. “It was everything I wanted and more,” she says.

“I hate wearing heels, so I always knew I would wear flats,” says Anna. “My mother-in-law found me a pair of Kate Spade shoes with a blow on the toes that I loved!”

Maitland Art Center: Style Me Pretty Feature

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Father and BrideWe are thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty for one the most unique weddings we’ve played a part in. This wedding ceremony took place at the Maitland Art Center in Maitland, Florida and was followed by an intimate reception at 310 Lakeside Restaurant. The bride and groom celebrated their marriage with family and friends from across the world. They had guests from Japan, South Africa, Europe and Australia. Pietri Photography captured beautiful photographs from the day.Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal Gown

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal BouquetFor the bridal bouquet we used a King Protea, the national flower of South Africa, and other South African favorites like gardenias and eucalyptus. We love that our bride chose to add gardenias to her bouquet to keep with family tradition–how special! Her David’s Bridal gown was simply gorgeous, and the texture of the lace looked lovely with the bold shapes of her florals. The traditional Catholic ceremony took place in the roofless chapel at the Maitland Art Center. Instead of communion the priest gave a homily which compared a pineapple to the sweetness of marriage. Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Ceremony

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, First KissCan you believe this entire wedding cost under $10,000? The bride’s mother-in-law brought table linens from South Africa, and Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals provided chair rentals for the day. Sprinkles Custom Cakes designed a traditional South African fruit cake for the reception. DJ Scott Thompson of Thompson Entertainment provided entertainment for the reception–not to mention a surprise visit from Elvis! Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bouquet
