White and Blush Duke University Chapel Wedding

We were so please that Kristi 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 Katies wedding was the highlight of our season. Katies 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 grooms garter carried through the modern white theme with simple and elegant spray roses that complimented Dougs navy blue and blush suit. Duke University Wedding, Floral Dimensions Durham NC

Bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets that showed off their blush gowns, and greenery and succulents made the bouquets really pop. Duke University Wedding, Floral Dimensions Durham NC

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. Duke University Wedding, Floral Dimensions Durham NC

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. Duke University Wedding, Floral Dimensions Durham NC

A striking modern and  minimal tall center piece was the perfect balance to the floral center pieces.

Finally, the bridesmaids bouquets graced other tables, performing double duty as centerpieces. The light green succulents perfectly complimented the white roses and greenery.
