We were so please that Kate and Doug chose us to design and excute their Duke University Chapel wedding flowers. It’s always an honor to be part of someone’s wedding, and the trust that couples place in our ability to bring to life their floral plans is priceless.
Doug and Kate’s wedding was the highlight of our season. Kate’s modern bridal bouquet was a compact but luxurious white and green arrangement. Stock, white roses and hydrangea were off set beautiful by the most amazing succulents the market had for us that week.
The Bridal Portrait in the cloisters of Duke Chapel is amazing. The soft color palette accentuated the detail on the brides gown. Combined with her cathedral veil, the look was a soft and elegant but still formal wedding style.
Can we have a quick word about succulents here? We LOVE them for many reasons, but in a wedding bouquet, the primary reason we love them is their hardiness. In the southern summer weddings, flowers might begin to wilt in the heat. A well chosen succulent loves heat. It doesn’t wilt. So if you’re planning a wedding during warmer months, adding a succulent or two to your bridal florals will help them stand up to the heat AND give your florals that minimal modern vibe that’s so popular right now. You won’t regret that choice.
Moving on to the reception, the couple opted to for tall statement making center pieces. Lush arrangements of hydrangea, greenery and light pink roses helped carry on the blush and modern theme from the ceremony.
A striking modern and minimal tall center piece was the perfect balance to the floral center pieces.
