The Clay Theatre is such a brilliant venue! They are located at 326 Walnut St, in Green Cove Springs, FL 32043. With white walls and black trim there are so many possibilities to compliment your style and create a wedding or event that reflects your unique personality. Which is what this featured wedding shows. The color palette was a mix of moody purples and touches of black.
The bouquets featured ranunculus, scabiosa, anemones, thistle, astrania and mixed greenery.
What an aisle! The celestial theme runs throughout the whole event. Even the bridesmaids dresses featured a small star pattern. The backdrop is a crescent moon arch which is filled with cremons, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, lisianthus and mixed greenery.
The aisle decor is a mix of roses, cremons, astrania, thistle, anemones and mixed greenery. Bringing the decor all the way to the start of the aisle really finishes the look and gives a longer sight line.
One of the things I am most excited about is this floating arrangement framing the bar. Such a nice touch! The gardeny lush design with the clean gold frame is so gorgeous. This would also look great on a gathering table. Hanging clear votive orbs could be hung from it to give a romantic candlelit look.
Look at that beautiful tile work behind the sink! This venue is so lovely. If you are still looking for the perfect spot to host your event, check them out.
This is a great shot of the ballroom from the balcony. The floors are so pretty! All the tables had black linens and unbelievable place settings, which you’ll see in a closer shot on the next picture.
Ahhh look at the crystal stemware, the plates, the chargers and the flatware!! All of those details really make a huge impact. It was even prettier in person. The place setting gifts are a small clear globe, great touch! One more thing to gush over is the geode, each table has a different type. The bride has a collection so this really show cases her personality is a very charming way.
The arrangements are placed on a gold modern stand. The flowers are a dark mix of hydrangeas, cremons, David Austin garden roses, scabiosa, thistle, astrania, anemones and mixed greenery.

This is an absolutely enchanting celestial themed wedding at the Oldest House Gardens in St Augustine. Here is the beautiful bride with her bouquet.
All of the pictures were taken by the amazing Folk House Photo, www.folkhousephoto.com
The Oldest House is such a magical spot to get married.
The bouquets have Hearts roses, Dark Blue delphinums, Blackberry scabiosa, Purple kale, White football mums, White stock, White limonium, Dark pink wax flower and lots mixed greenery.
The jewel toned bridesmaids dresses are super pretty!
Such a pretty view from the sweetheart table. Look at those gorgeous trees!
The crescent moon arch is serving two purposes a seating chart with names on hanging stars and also a great spot for photos. It sits between the sign-in table and the cocktail tables and is one of the first florals that are seen as you walk from the ceremony, talk about a WOW factor.
This is the perfect way to dine, surrounded by soft mounds of flowers. How dreamy!
The sweetheart table is situated between two head tables filled with lush flower centerpieces. The celestial plates and gold flatware are so beautiful!
The gold boxes really elevate the look of the long centerpieces and are perfect on the purple sashes.
A great money saving tip is to reuse the bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces. Here all the components are placed around with an empty vase for the bouquet to simply be placed in after the ceremony. The little florals around the base really finish off the look.
The picture below was taken by me, that’s why the quality is different. But it had to be included, just look at it! I love the potting bench sign in table.
Awww the bride and groom are cutting the cake under the stars. This is so romantic!
The beautiful dessert spread was created by the super talented baker ChocoLatte in St Augustine, www.chocolattes47.com It smells soooo good!
A close up of some of the desserts….YUM!
This is such a wonderful way to commemorate this beautiful union. Would be really cool to take a picture at every anniversary next to it.
Thanks for spending some time in the flowers! Now back to the real world. 🙂

We get a sneak peak at the first look. This is one of my favorite moments of a wedding.
Beautiful St Augustine by the river. One of the many great things about hosting a wedding at The White Room is that you get the best of St Augustine. As you walk around historic downtown to find the perfect photo spot tourists will congratulate you and give their well wishes. So fun!
The first four pictures are by the incredible-
Awww that smile says it all!! Sooo sweet!
This is what true love looks like…
Let’s take a moment to look at his tie! Seriously that is gorgeous!
OK so the pictures following are taken by me on my cell phone.
She is radiant!! Her cascade bouquet has roses, veronica, lisianthus, moonstone roses and a mix of eucalyptus greenery.
The low centerpieces were a cluster of cylinder vases filled with whimsical babies breath under water with candles set on a bed of greenery and roses.
This gorgeous mirror is in the ballroom at The White Room and is the perfect spot for a vase arrangement to reflect.

Rebekah and Alex’s ceremony was held at the Beautiful World Golf Hall of Fame. One of the things I love about this venue is that they offer everything in one spot which makes it easy for the guests. There are various locations for the ceremony, reception and also the rehearsal dinner.
The ceremony was held overlooking the iconic pool of unity, which Sarah Hedden Photography captured a great shot of below. This cutie patootie couple is so adorable and their smiles are contagious.
The bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets were loosely arranged with a variety of blush roses, larkspur and mixed greenery. I personally love the texture in these bouquets and the roses are gorgeous.
One thing that is great about having shades of blush as opposed to just one color is that they stand out nicely against the bridesmaid’s dresses. That is something to always keep in mind when choosing floral colors. Even the greenery helps break up the colors nicely.
The Groom and Groomsmen’s boutonnieres had a single blush rose with greenery. I really love the classic tuxes with a subtle pop of color which looks good on it’s own and also ties everything together when combined with the other florals, dresses and decor.
Ahhh we are to my favorite part… the aisle. This was so beautiful for many reasons. First the softly patterned scarves added a blast of personality, Secondly the scarves were bought while Rebekah was on vacation with her bridesmaids which is super special and Thirdly they added movement to the aisle as the soft breeze blew through. Always, always, always incorporate things that are personal and special into your wedding day, those are the things that make the decorations memorable. The ceremony arrangements were a mixture of roses, hydrangeas, larkspur, babies breath, caspia, orgonia, myrtle and ivy. The classic style of the arrangements complimented the overall vibe of the ceremony.
Below is a great shot of how the flowers overall frame the whole event, the groomsman’s boutonniere, the bridesmaid’s bouquet and the ceremony arrangements. Also it is worth noting that the flowers added a great backdrop without obstructing the beautiful view and can be reused at the reception later.
Oh my goodness!! All this cuteness!!! Look at her shoes… The ring bearer and flower girl making their exit.
I absolutely adored the streamer exit, So Fun!! My cat Ruby would have loved this!
Rebekah chose to have half the reception tables decorated with a low centerpiece and half with a tall centerpiece. The reception was held at the Sheraton, Deerwood which has tall ceilings and having a mix looked awesome.
The laser cut butterfly boxes were a really nice touch. Each one had a LED votive in it so they looked really whimsical and fun.
You can see the boxes a little better in the picture below. The centerpieces had a few shades of blush roses, white hydrangeas, purple caspia, babies breath and mixed greenery. The tall centerpieces were placed on top of a clear vase which allowed the flowers to shine.
…and as always the throw bouquet has the Fantasy signature long ribbon tails.

A Fantasy in Flowers was thrilled to be a part of Erika and Nathan’s beautiful wedding day at the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club. The vows were said with the sounds of the endless ocean and seagulls overhead.
A perfect backdrop for a perfect love story.
Erika’s bridal bouquet was a mixture of sunflowers, fragrant white stock and burgundy dahlias.
Nathan’s boutonniere was a perfect compliment with yellow viking daisies, a touch of burgundy limonium and a bit of greenery.
The couple dined in the Conservatory room which is a beautiful octagon shaped space that opens to a sun filled trellis overlooking the ocean. The centerpiece was filled with sunflowers, delicate white stock, burgundy dahlias and greenery. Such a lovely time sharing and enjoying the company of those who are the closest to this dear couple.

Silvia and Jacob’s Epping Forest Yacht Club wedding was a waterfront design in vibrant blues, purples, green and white. It was a pleasure working with the couple and the vendors!
Fantasy Floral Design Details
Bouquets: Silvia’s cascading bouquet was made with blue delphinium, white roses, Asiatic lilies and just a sprig of greenery. It smelled wonderful! Her bridesmaids carried a cluster of light blue hydrangea.
Ceremony: We added blue hydrangea clusters to the aisle chairs- the pop of blue was so pretty and really helped draw the eye to the altar. We also made a stunning garland to define the ceremony- we accented the greenery with orchids and roses, then added huge lilies at the corners. We used much of the same floral in the built-in urn (a fun feature at Epping Forest).
Reception: The sweetheart table stole the show! We made a lush garland with lots of roses, hydrangea (mini and full size), roses and lilies to drape in the front. It was also flanked by two large arrangments on white pillars and added another on the floor. It had so much WOW facotr! The centerpieces were made with the same types of florals, but also included orchids. The purply-blue blooms looked so pretty with the pops of white and greenery.
