Merlot Bella Collina Wedding

Every single wedding is special, and we can never get enough of them! Katelynn and Kyle’s Bella Collina wedding was just gorgeous, with beautiful pops of crimson and merlot throughout the ceremony and decor.

Blush by Brandee Gaar did a fabulous job – as always – keeping everything running smoothly to give Katelynn and Kyle the wedding of their dreams, while Collective by Concept was there every step of the way to capture it all for a lifetime.

Katelynn made the most stunning bride; everyone turned to look at her as she walked down the aisle, transfixed by her smile and beautiful gown. Her cascading bouquet had been lovingly crafted in a rich color palette of white, champagne, blush, and merlot wine.  

The bouquet popped against the ivory of Katelynn’s gown, full of lush hydrangea blooms, champagne and blush garden roses, merlot red ranunculus, deep burgundy dahlia, and hanging red amaranthus floral. To finish out the bouquet, we added some seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, Italian ruscus, and Italian pitt foliage.

For Katelynn’s bridesmaids, we created elegant, hand-tied bouquets of white hydrangea with blush garden roses, soft pink ranunculus, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. For a bit of softness, we added in some pink wax flowers.

Of course, our groom had to match his bride! For Kyle, we created a boutonniere with merlot-red ranunculus blooms, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. It was striking against his charcoal gray suit, making him so dashing!

Everyone admired the couple throughout the ceremony, cheering as Katelynn and Kyle were pronounced husband and wife. Soon after, it was time to kick off the party! Everything was perfectly in place for the indoor reception, and everyone was ready to get on the dance floor!

Katelynn and Kyle wanted their centerpieces to be stunning, but a little different, and we loved getting creative with the idea! We crafted their centerpieces with our rustic wrought iron chandeliers, using a mix of the same flowers used in Katelynn’s and the bridesmaids’ bouquets plus a bit of foliage for a hint of a rustic touch.

After hours of dancing the time away and making memories, the day came to a close, and soon, it was time to say goodbye to our couple. Congratulations again, Katelynn and Kyle!

Ballroom at Church Street: Danielle and Lee

 

Danielle and Lee had a gorgeous wedding at the Ballroom at Church Street, planned by Nicole of Nicole Squared Events and photographed by Nelson of Brian Pepper Photography. We were so happy to contribute our floral designs for their special day!

We created a lush bridal bouquet packed full of white, cream and soft blush pink roses. As a special touch, Lee likes to include a note for the bride to read when her bouquet is delivered.

The bridesmaids carried coral-colored bouquets, which offset their cobalt blue dresses beautifully! The pinky-orange color is just brilliant. The groomsmen had complimenting boutonnieres.

We love how the stained glass windows of the historic ballroom made the perfect backdrop for the couple’s ceremony and formal photos.

The reception room was awash in warm lighting. The decor was opulent but classic and simple. Our tall centerpieces of white hydrangea and very lightly colored blush pink roses looked lovely when surrounded by candles and gold accents.

We also added blush pink roses to make their white wedding cake look extra special!

In order to mirror the romantic aura of the occasion, we chose the spectrum of pinks, accented with different textures of greenery, for the floral arrangements. Not only did they complement the bride’s gown from Calvet Couture, but they added to the eclectic Moroccan flare of the reception.

Floral accents of vibrant pinks with a hint of succulents created beautiful bouquets. For the bride, we paired the pink floral with soft white roses for a more romantic and elegant bridal bouquet to complement the beauty of the bride.

The rustic style was tied together with wooden tables, custom chairs, table numbers, and chargers from A Chair Affair while soft linens from Kirby Rental adorned the tables. Lee James Floral Design provided all of the floral arrangements from the bouquets to the centerpieces which were nothing short of stunning.
