From the event designer, The Wildflowers... Samantha and Michael’s winter wedding was like dancing through a work of art right out of the Romantic Era. The initial vision of their celebration called for moody and dramatic color themes, when the discovery a floral watercolor painting hung in Samantha’s home presented us with the perfect palette: dusty blue-gray, deep navy, rich plum and berry, with tiny hints of blush and green. Samantha’s love for art beautifully influenced many of our design decisions, like Southern Fried Paper's watercolor envelope liners to the custom-painted ombré blue escort card display.

Along with an ode to fine art, another aesthetic ethos was an emphasis of the color palette in subtle yet impactful ways. Gradients of twilight made appearances from the spectrum of bridesmaid gowns to the invitations, including dining cards that used shades of blue to dictate meal choices rather than standard text. The rich shades of plum and amaranthine complemented the blues in the bouquets and the breathtaking floral ceiling installation at the reception. Vibrant freesia that was dip-dyed by The Southern Table to create dramatic depth, as the flowers rained down among string lights over the tablescapes in a truly ethereal dining atmosphere.

From the ceremony to the reception, we strove for this harmony of classic and whimsical. In subtle ways, like the undone romantic florals, carefully arranged staggered silverware, and flowing fabrics with loose ribbons. And more noticeably, in the medley of androgyny and femininity in colors, textures, and shapes throughout. It was a night that was beautiful, sentimental, and iconic; with Samantha and Michael’s getaway in a 1964 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud leaving a last, long lasting impression on all of us.
