Merri-MINT 2013

2013 brings with it the promise of mint as a beautiful base color for dresses, vases and any other wedding decor one can think of.

I adore this all mint bouquet  made with airplants, succulents, seeded eucalyptus and hydrangea- ooh!! I would love to create this for a bride or her bridesmaids this year!

2012 Popular Trends Revisited


As we approach the end of the year, it's fun to look back and see what our brides were consistently attracted to in terms of color and design. The truth is that here in Savannah, Charleston and the Low Country, southern vintage charm will always reign. Blushes, grays, spanish moss, mason jars, burlap, lace, sweet tea, cotton and peaches always make for a comforting, beautiful combination.

New Year's Resolutions


And so another year rolls up before us. I'm blushing to see my last entry was in June. Hence, "New Year's Resolutions". I shall not set myself up for failure by promising to write everyday. On the contrary, several times a month might be more realistic. Thus far, most of my posts have been highlights of our beautiful brides and their lovely weddings, but with Pinterest visually taking us over by storm, there's simply so much eye candy to share and chat about. Speaking of resolutions, the Knot has some fun ones for you brides to be.

Are those resolutions tucked into a bridal bouquet? Close- they're love letters! My brilliant bride Kellie, made origami flowers out of her beloved's missives and we fashioned them into an amazing bouquet- talk about teamwork! I love it when brides think out of the box :)

Thank you to each of you: brides, families and vendors who made 2012 a tremendous joy and a Happy 2013 to come!

A Woodsy June Affair

********* What a lovely pair! Jessica & Tim, both SCAD Photography graduates, celebrated their nuptials at the historic Ships of the Sea Museum paying homage to her family's naval past. The green ferns, succulents and purplish florals were the perfect cooling touch to a warm Savannah Saturday. Adding to the memories were the bride's family's collection of silver that were staggered in vignettes throughout the tables. Ever the artists, Jessica and Tim created gorgeous laser cut chandeliers and hanging embroidery hoops fitted with lace. Burlap runners trimmed with lace and delicate glass candlesticks and votives, mason jars for drinking tied the vintage affair together and a wonderful time was had by all. {photos: Molly Joseph Photography}

Hooray Annie + Dustin

********** It was a perfect day for a perfect wedding. Annie and Dustin celebrated their nuptials at the Tybee Wedding Chapel, on a sunny, early summer afternoon. The flowers embodied eclectic elegance while the decor design exhibited southern rustic charm. Bouquets of blush stock, roses, peonies, and dusty miller accompanied tablescapes of lace burlap runners, homey candles, and milk glass bud vases. The wedding cake was just as charming and beautiful as the decor. Everything flowed together, and it was such a pleasure to create the look and feel of Annie's big day. All of the floral design complemented her and her party in such a beautiful way. Thanks to Jade and Matthew for their absolutely gorgeous photos.

Congratulations Chelsea + Rylan

********** I had a great time creating a bright, crisp design look for this lovely, quirky couple for their spring wedding. Chelsea had chosen a cheerful color palette which inspired me to make something part playful, part tame, all fantastic. The result: a combo of roses and tulips in spunky shades of yellow, orange and ivory. I'd like to thank Teresa Earnest from Memories N More for capturing the jolly duo of Chelsea and Rylan.

Congratulations Keara + Ryan

********** Blush, plush, posh!! The wedding of Keara and Ryan was inspired by Victorian Era luxury and modern flair. And the reception was appropriately housed at The Olde Pink House in historic Savannah. Influenced by a pomp setting, I combined globes of white carnations with decadent black and white runners, as accents of black feathers provided bold contrast to the centerpieces. The bridal bouquet was just as grand. I paired blush and pink roses with white carnations and baby's breath, and crowned it all with brooches. It was indeed a pleasure to help make the couple's sovereign vision a reality.

Congratulations Katie + Nate

Styling Fun: The Tybee Wedding Chapel


Although the temperature was unusually cold, we had a wonderful time at SOUTH Magazine's, "The Celebrations Issue" photo shoot for, "Perfecting the Party Dress." Courtney, manager of Bleubelle Bridal was a gorgeous model in a stunning Oscar de la Renta, braving the bitter 22 degrees; Christine Hall was our fabulous photographer and Urban Poppy had the pleasure of styling the shoot and the blooms at The Tybee Wedding Chapel.
