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.

Laura Hooper Calligraphy Workshop

Have you ever been to a wedding where a menu or welcome sign catches your eye? And you think, what a lovely detail!

Well, Laura Hooper Calligraphy specializes in the lovely details and we couldn’t agree more with that sentiment. So, when Elyse Skansi of Tying The Knot Wedding Coordination reached out to us about getting involved in Laura’s upcoming workshop in New Orleans, we were thrilled!



Laura creates gorgeous calligraphy- wedding invitations, place cards, hand drawn maps, and signage of all types.

Greer Gattuso of Greer G Photography hosted the event at her beautiful studio near downtown New Orleans. The white walls and bright lighting were the perfect clean backdrop to all of the event’s unique facets.


Palate New Orleans provided some small bites, refreshments, and decorated the table with local foliage. Below are a few of our photos from the workshop. But, we’re looking forward to seeing the photos Greer will be posting in the near future!
