Weddings with our Team at Floral Dimensions our (Durham, local flowers shop) is always one of our favorites. But, when it is a friend and co-worker it is even more special. Our sweet Caitlin married her love Thomas at the beautiful University Club this past January. The wonderful K.G. photography did an amazing job on all the images. When I asked Caitlin what she would like for her bouquet her response was ” You know what I like and I want it to be big.” Well, I got you there girlie we love big bouquets and this one turned out beautifully. The pink ice protea, garden roses, scabiosa, hanging amaranthus, mini calla and assorted, fun foliages all worked great together to create a stunning bouquet.
Our assistant manager Jose Garcia was determined Caitlin and Thomas would have a flower wall for their ceremony space. He procured, gathered and designed a beautiful piece for their backdrop. The boxwood and magnolia foliages along with open polar star roses and hydrangea were simple, elegant and very effective. The wall is designed with no floral foam as it is better for the environment and chicken wire worked great to hold all the foliages and flowers. The two side pieces of branches, eleaganus and magnolia were a perfect statement along with a candlelight addition to set the mood. Adding a backdrop to any wedding works well to create a focal area for the Bride and Groom. The backdrop also enchances the photos and allows for a great shot. Enchancing the imagery of this wedding can be enjoyed for many years to come.
The reception at The University Club was filled with candlelight, flowers and special memories. With a simple, classic style the centerpieces and candlelight brought the main dining space at the UC club to life. A mixture of Tall Centerpieces of foliages and hanging amaranthus along with lower pieces highlighting Pink Ice protea worked wonderfully to create an interesting and finished look. Candlelight along the window sills and on the tables made the room feel warm and inviting.
The show stopper at the reception was definitely the Focal Table under the chandelier in the center of the space. This technique gives the room a WOW factor and leaves guests with a beautiful memory of the flowers. This elevated statement piece designed on a glass floating table surrounded by candlelight and votives added such a POP to the room. The combination of texture gave it a feeling of romance perfect for the space and the couple.
I love all weddings. They have always been my favorite thing to design but I will say this one was definitely at the top of my list. The freedom to design along with a client who we all love made it just perfect. Click to check out our A La Carte menu for your intimate wedding.
