Southern Glam:

The ladies from Aesthetic Floral and Event Artistry put together that sweet Southern Wedding we were all waiting for: Southern Glam! Southern Glam was full of elegance and class with a touch of sweet southern hospitality. Think Steel Magnolia meets high powered style. The Gatsby-like atmosphere, inspired by historic plantations, garden parties, the Kentucky Derby, Emily Post, peony blooms and pearls, proved to effortlessly chic. They gave their brides unique ideas to sass up their southern wedding by having their bouquet made of vintage broaches, which the brides raved about! Aesthetic Floral and Event Artistry inspired brides to use their grandmother’s lace and mama’s pearls with a twist. Truly Stunning!

Vintage Chic:

The team at Bloom Floral Design found their inspiration for Vintage Chic from all things organic. Antique stores were a must and flea markets a necessity. This theme was for the brides that admire history, lace, ice tea, home-made additions and those charming vintage customs! At the NotWedding, Bloom Floral Design slipped in those soft colors from the post war era, that vintage lace your grandmother made, doilies, weathered woods and wild flowers mixed with roses for that classic wedding day feel. With different sized bird cages, giant round white balloons and antique styled soda pop bottles, they pulled off the perfect shabby chic wedding!

Enchanted Forest:

The incredible team from The Savage Garden was behind the Enchanted Forest theme. The Enchanted Forest was a fantasy landscape complete with native trees, shrubs, ferns and lush moss covered branches in a serene woodland setting lit by darling chandeliers. The Savage Garden created an oasis of exotic vines, beautiful flowers, sparkling fairy lights, richly beaded and sequenced table linens, mercury glass and Egyptian glass potion bottles for that one-of-a-kind touch. Each setting had a candied apple, sugared fruits, and stunning jeweled insects giving that feeling that you just stumbled upon a forest fairy’s feast! This striking theme made for an incredibly captivating wedding design!
