Bold, Beautiful, and Berry Hued Floral Designs Featured in Style Me Pretty

Bold, Beautiful, and Berry Hued Floral Designs Featured in Style Me Pretty

The KSW Krewe’s latest Style Me Pretty feature showcases our floral designs for Fernanda and Farere’s winter wedding earlier this year.

Despite warm weather in New Orleans in January, Fernanda chose a berry-hued color palette that was perfect for a winter wedding in a tropical environment. Not to mention, we absolutely love it when a bride chooses to go bold with her florals for her big day!

Bride & Groom Holding Bridal Bouquet

For her bridal bouquet, we created an organic and asymmetrical bouquet in shades of burgundy, dark red, plum, black, blue, dark pink and peach using garden roses, hanging amaranthus, ranunculus, lisianthus, carnations, spray roses, eucalyptus, scabiosa, amaryllis and other seasonal blooms wrapped with ivory and champagne ribbon.

Groom's Boutonniere and Wedding Corsages

Farere’s boutonniere perfectly complemented Fernanda’s bouquet with a plum ranunculus accented with greenery and wrapped in black satin ribbon.

The mothers each wore our signature corsage cufflet with a classic design of ivory roses and green accents.

Escort Card Table Floral Arrangement

The reception took place at the main ballroom at The Westin, Canal Place.

At the entrance, the escort card table featured a towering, mostly magnolia foliage, fern, flat eucalyptus filled floral arrangement with a pop of red roses, amaranthus and amaryllis in a tall gold leafed container.

Wedding Flower Centerpieces

The head table featured lush and organic styled floral arrangements in gold vases that were slightly varied using the same color palette and style as the bridal bouquet except with a heavier presence of foliage.

Gold mercury glass votives were used to perfectly match the bold, yet romantic ambiance.

Wedding Cake with Ombre Floral Design

A stunning ombre cascade of ranunculus and roses adorned the tiered wedding cake.

A story in the Winter 2015 issue of Inside Weddings Magazine covers a wedding that features flowers from Kim Starr Wise Floral Events.

The New Orleans wedding of Trina DasGupta and Quinton Pillay blended both Western and Indian customs to beautiful effect. KSW was involved in the production of all floral arrangements, and the results were stunning.

The ceremony was held at City Park’s Arbor Room and the reception followed at the Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt. The color palette – hot pink, red, orange, teal, gold – was vibrant and unique, and the traditional Indian elements provided an exciting challenge. KSW helped execute the designs for floating table arrangements, LED trees, a kabuki drop, garlands for traditional statues, and more. Vivid roses, orchids, peonies, snapdragons, alstroemeria, and carnations were used in the arrangements.

Many thanks to the following for all their creative efforts and input: David Beahm Designs, Christine Paul Events, Solomon Group, Cloth Connection, Kappa Designs, and the KSW team.

Weddings Unveiled recently posted an editorial piece on a styled inspiration wedding in New Orleans – designed by Sapphire Events – that featured our flower arrangements. The theme was “Anchored in Love,” and nautical elements – from knots to oyster shells – were prominent throughout. Our wedding bouquet was made from pure white peonies and light blue scabiosa. The boutonniere was a passion flower, and the floral arrangements for the tables were made with white peonies, blue delphinium, lavender anemones, sweet peas, passionflower vines, passion flower fruit, and freesia.

Aisle Perfect recently featured the New Orleans wedding of Megan Misanelli and Byron Brackin, with floral arrangements done by Kim Starr Wise Floral Events. The wedding was held in the lush courtyard at Court of Two Sisters.

We used white tulips, mini callas, and vendela roses for the bouquet, while the floral arrangements on the tables and on the cake used a stunning range of blues with blue hydrangea, thistle, belladonna delphinium, green trick dianthus, seeded eucalyptus, ivy, and succulents. Our candles and table lanterns were included to provide a subtle lighting accent to the table arrangements.

Many thanks to Clandestine NOLA for the event planning and catering, Bittersweet Confections for the cake, and Arte De Vie  for photography.
