Getting Married: Elizabeth + Patrick

We are just in love with the Kate Spade inspired wedding of Elizabeth and Patrick. When Elizabeth and her family came to us, they were thinking of bold stripes and bright colors to reflect  the couples fun and vibrant style. We could not have been more excited to begin designing the space, which was the renovated Patrick F. Taylor Library in the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. It just so happens that Elizabeth’s father was one of the architects who restored the library to it’s stunningly beautiful state.

Elizabeth walked down the aisle in these fabulous Kate Spade shoes. What bride doesn’t love a little glitter?

The Bride is as talented as she is darling! She designed her custom invitation which were letter-pressed and featured gilded siding.

We also worked with Elizabeth and Patrick to create the bridal party’s ceremony florals. The bride held a stark white bouquet which looked lovely in comparison to the bright colors of the reception centerpieces.

Guests were welcomed to the reception with some colorful chalkboard signage by the endlessly talented Kelly Draws.

The stone fireplace in the library held a floral wreath which mirrored the color pattern of the reception. Along with wreath, we created an arrangement for the hearth which was filled with variegated pittosporum and a medallion of colorful florals. The intimate ceremony of family and close friends was incredibly heartfelt and authentic.

We decorate the reception space with twinkle lights to give a glow above the tables and added charming over-sized paper lanterns above the dance floor to create a playful vibe.

The table centerpieces were a true homage to the words of Kate Spade, “live colorfully.” We mixed up the arrangements with groupings of sleek gold vases and mercury accents.

The menu that we created with Elizabeth and Patrick featured some fun and laid-back items to reflect the couple’s style. Items such a pickle fries with sriracha-ranch dipping sauce and mini grilled cheese over warm tomato basil soup were a big hit with the guests!

Getting Married: Jennifer + Blake

We’re officially in the thick of summer in Louisiana and that means hot days and nights. Without a doubt, July can be brutal! But, we’re  cooling off this week thinking about Jennifer + Blake’s winter wedding at the boutique French Quarter venue, Hotel Mazarin.

This January ceremony was held in the hotel’s courtyard, which is home to a stunning up-lit fountain. We covered the fountain in an eclectic mix of glass vases and kept the glow going with white column candles.

Jennifer + Blake wanted a floral backdrop for their nuptials so we worked with their vision to create floral arrangements full of hydrangea and delphiniums housed in our silver trumpet vases.

A stark white ranunculus with silver foliage made the perfect boutonniere for the groom.

And, we used hydrangea and a mix of delicate ranunculus to give Jennifer a sweet and traditional bridal bouquet.

Guests were welcomed to the ceremony with a photo frame to sign and wish the couple well, a birdcage to drop their cards off, and this fragrant white arrangement.

The bride wanted to save her bouquet – and we love a true nod to tradition! So, we created a cake topper that later doubled as a toss bouquet for her gals.

It was such a pleasure being a part of Jennifer + Blake’s elegant wedding. We wish them all the best in their future together!

And, a special thank you to Scott Myers Photography for sharing these gorgeous photos with us! They did a truly phenomenal job (I mean look at that detail!) and were such a pleasure to work with.
