Backyard New Year’s Eve Wedding

New Year’s Eve is always special, and there’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with a wedding! Kate and Josh are such a sweet couple, and their New Year’s Eve wedding will tug at our heartstrings for years to come!

Team James had the pleasure of designing the floral for Kate’s sister’s wedding a year ago, and it was an honor to be called back for another Devine wedding! Kate’s parents’ backyard made the ideal venue for such a beautiful day, with Weddings Unique bringing every detail together flawlessly, while Kristen Weaver worked magic with her camera lens, as usual!

The blush and white color scheme was soft in its elegance, allowing us to create the most lovely and romantic arrangements. The entire space had a backyard garden wedding atmosphere in the late afternoon, transitioning to an ethereal atmosphere during the nighttime ceremony with fairy lights gently lighting the night sky.

Kate made a stunning bride as she walked down the aisle, wearing a big smile and a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown as she carried her lush bridal bouquet. We lovingly created her bouquet with blush hydrangea, white peonies, and champagne roses throughout, with ranunculus blooms and blush rice floral. Dusty miller and clusters of seeded eucalyptus and Italian ruscus made for an elegant finish.

Kate’s bridesmaids looked stylish and beautiful, dressed in an assortment of beautiful gowns for a Gatsby-inspired touch. Their bouquets were truly striking against their gowns, crafted with blush hydrangea blooms with open cream and champagne roses throughout.

The floral throughout the ceremony was created with Kate’s vision in mind: magnolia foliage woven into stunning garlands accented with baby’s breath. Everything came together for a truly breathtaking ceremony at this New Year’s Eve wedding!

Joshua looked so proud and overjoyed throughout the entire day, and it was little wonder why! They made the most adorable couple, and it was a beautiful sight to see two souls so in love with one another.

Pretty soon, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds at the reception. Every detail was beautiful, with lovely white wooden round tables draped with stunning blush lace, topped with assorted gold mercury vessels holding lush arrangements created to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

All too soon, the evening came to an end, and it was time to bid our newlyweds farewell. Congratulations again, Kate and Joshua! Designing the floral for your New Year’s Eve wedding was an honor, and we wish you a long, happy life together!

Winter Park Racquet Club: Erica and Matt

Earlier this year, Erica and Matt celebrated their big day at the Winter Park Racquet Club with the help of Tickled Pink Brides. The couple was quite stylish! The bride wore a sleek, strapless gown with tiered bustle by Oscar de la Renta from The Collection Bridal, and the groom looked handsome in his navy blue tux with black lapel. We think Andi Mans Photography did a great job capturing the couple’s easy, romantic feeling. We’re happy to share some of our favorite photos from this classy wedding.

Our floral work was classic and simple. For the ceremony, the aisle was lined with a generous amount of white rose petals. The bride carried a white rose bouquet that was a perfect combination of modern and traditional. In the groom’s lapel was a single, large white rose. For the reception, we used small arrangements along the long banquet tables. Each clear glass vase contained a single type of white flower, tulips or hydrangeas, accented by greenery. The couple’s sweetheart table included a larger arrangement of, of course, all white floral. Plenty of candlelight warmed the room as the sun set in the background. So romantic!
