Vintage Whites and Greens

Sarah and Oran were married at St. Andrew's Church in Franklin and had their reception at a new venue called ONE.  Sarah loved whites ad greens and arrangements full of texture!  Below are the bride and bridesmaid bouquets full of fun pods, succulents, and flowers.


This was our first time doing a reception at ONE, and we loved it! If you didn't know... ONE is a new venue above the Cannery Ballroom.  It has a great rustic and romantic vibe with a great view of Nashville.

  

I love the way their favors of honey were displayed!
  
Here is a look of the space all ready for guests to arrive!
   
We had several different looks for the centerpieces.  The first was an antique silver candelabra.  Below is a picture of arrangement with and without the candlelight.  Lighting makes such a difference!

Another centerpiece was our tall candlesticks with flowers and a frosted pillar candle on the top.


I love this look of various antique silver pieces all grouped in the center of the table.


Mercury glass and silver were a big theme for this wedding and I think they all blended perfectly!

Do you recognize these from the rehearsal dinner?  We love re-purposing flowers (and in this instance, plants) from one event to the next. This is a great way to save on cost but not on looks!

The sweetheart table had a beautiful cloth along with a collection of our silver and mercury glass.


This beautiful cake was made by the talented Leland Riggan at Dessert Designs!

There is a great space for a photobooth at this venue, and Sarah and Oran took full advantage of it!


I love all the lounge furniture that helps to warm the space and give a more intimate environment.

Each highboy had a small bouquet of flowers on top of a wooden log.  I love this arrangement, and I believe that the succulent makes it!

  

The next several pictures are of the space off to the side that offers more lounge seating, family pictures, and of course - a bar!


Congratulations Sarah and Oran! What a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple!

Succulents and Mercury Glass

Oran and Sarah's rehearsal dinner was at the Old Natchez Country Club.  I love the use of green, succulents, and mercury glass together.  It is such a lush and fresh look!


Jim and I had so much fun putting various succulents and plants together for a natural and free formed arrangement.  The texture of the plants compliments the mercury glass bowl perfectly!


The small details make this look! I love the sweet love bird salt and pepper shakers.






More to come soon from Sarah and Oran's happy weekend!

Sunset Safari at the Zoo

Jim and I were thrilled to be able to work with the Nashville Zoo for their Sunset Safari fundraiser again this year!  We designed the decor for the Patron's Party that was chaired by Michelle Roberson and Mary Wilson.  Keep scrolling for pictures of this year's fun jungle party!


We dressed the restrooms up in true jungle style.


We love using bamboo!


Patrons had a special party during the night where they were treated to delicious treats made by Chef Chuck White and Chef David Miller. They also had fancy bistro tables where they could set their glasses.


Drumroll please.... (for the unveiling of this photo!) I LOVE this tree from Visual Elements. We dressed up the iron base with flowers, greens, and branches.  We also suspended lanterns and hanging votives from the tree's outstretched arms.  I wish I had a picture of this room at night!



The party continued outside to more high boys, lounge seating, and of course - a bar!



Patrons could stand at this overlook to watch the band playing below.


Another perk to being a patron is that you can come here and have your photo taken with some of the animals at the zoo!

Late Summer Zinnias

Fall is approaching quickly and football season has begun.  Jim and I love to provide the flowers for parties during this time of year.  We even mess around with a little bit of planting.  I think that the zinnias and ivies turned out beautifully in the urns at the front of the house.

For the dining room table, Jim hand made a rustic wood box to custom fit the table.  For the arrangement we used a mix of fall flowers that would dry beautifully and keep for the fall season.

We love to use various colors of zinnias with other elements that add a lot of texture.
