Rustic charm at its best, a real southern wedding smells like a Magnolia breeze. According to an old saying in the south, if you bury a bottle of Bourbon where you plan to tie the knot, the sky won’t open up the day you say “I do”. It’s historical tidbits like these that leave us smitten with the south and the weddings it inspires.
Like a charm filled cake pull, our southern silhouettes feature strokes of good fortune like wedding flower centerpieces, wedding party bouquets, luxury floral arrangements and grooms cake flowers.
Camelia foliage, Spanish moss, Cotton bolls and Alabama frog bellies are some of our favorite elements to use in the design of our flower arrangements for a Southern hitching. As always, the kinds of vessels we use can truly take any shape. However, the containers of a southern belle tend to lean toward the simple and nostalgic — from re-purposed crates and wooden boxes to antiques of gold and silver.
Magnolias. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a wedding in the south without them. Something to keep in mind when dreaming up your bouquet, however, is that their blooms cannot be harvested. We suggest Gardenias, Iris, Jasmine, Hydrangea, Garden Roses, Dahlias and Tulips in their place.
A truly southern wedding calls for professionally designed details and a meticulous execution and understanding of the sweet, simple and homegrown. Through unique floral arrangements, wildflower bouquets, fresh table arrangements and statement pieces (like Rose covered arches
and living Tulip tapestries) — we’ll tell the story of your past, present and future days.
