Wedding at the Clay Theatre

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.

   Another shot of the guest tables. The chiavari chairs look really nice with the blend of textures throughout the space and prove that mixing your metals is a win.

 

 

   Check out these amazing cakes by the super talented Cali Marie Bakes at http://www.callimariebakes.com/ She is a cake genius! Each cake is a different flavor. The gorgeous cake displayed were accented by mounds of flowers! Seriously what is prettier than cake and flowers? 

 

 

   The sweetheart table has a bountiful arrangement filled with a luscious cymbidium stem, scabiosa, cremons, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, lisianthus and mixed greenery.

Wedding at The Oldest House, St Augustine

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.  🙂

The River House Wedding

Take a look at this gorgeous wedding at The River House which is located on the banks of the Matanzas River in the heart of downtown St. Augustine, Florida. 

The bride and her bridesmaids look so incredible with those shawls.  

   This beautiful moment and following two pictures were captured by the superbly talented – 

TheCapps.co

   The bouquets are a mix of white moonstone roses, ranunculus, roses, lisianthus, stock, trachelium and mixed eucalyptus.

 

The bride and groom are so precious! His boutonniere is a white rose with greenery.  

Now that’s how to make an exit. Ahhh the sparklers are so fun!

 

   The River House has such a beautiful view! 

   The aisle flowers bring your eye right up to the most magical ceremony spot, Classic white in urn topped pillars. The ribbons on the chair decor were dancing with the wind. 

   Flowers are Hybrid delphinium, Roses, Moonstone roses, Football mums, Trachelium and a mix of Eucayptus. 

 

 

   Greenery swagged on the Bride and Groom’s chairs are such a great touch, tying in the boxwood wall. In case you are wondering the neon name sign was ordered from –

   I wish I had a picture of the centerpieces lit! It was magical! The ballroom at The River House is such an incredible backdrop.  

 

 

   This beautiful cake, which smells amazing was created by Publix. We added some sprigs of eucalyptus and assorted roses. The little throw bouquet is laying on the table beside.

Rebekah Marie and Alex’s World Golf Hall of Fame Wedding

  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.

The Lodge & Club

  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.

Certus Bank Corporate Event — Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Event Florist

We recently had the honor of doing flower arrangements for an event at Certus Bank in Ponte Vedra (right around the corner from Sawgrass).

It’s a beautiful bank and we were honored to be a part of it.

After the event, we got this nice note from Lori Byrd, Assistant VP at the Ponte Vedra branch:

Susan,

I wanted to thank you and your staff for helping to make our event so successful. The flower arrangements were beautiful, and really added a special touch to our evening. Thank you, and we look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

The above photos were from the lobby areas. The below arrangement was on a table in a hallway.

And the flowers below were in a large conference room that had flowers going down the center of the table and then a grouping on the hutch along the back wall.

The trio of arrangements on the hutch in the back of the conference room:

And this is one of the arrangements that was made for an office:

We were on Junebug this week — North Florida Wedding Florist

Did you miss the announcement on our Facebook page? We were on Junebug Weddings this week!

We love working with a talented group of professionals and loved the article (click the link above) and all the photos!

One of the best parts of the article was where they asked the bride for her advice for other brides. We SOOOO agree!

What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? If you’re not a natural party planner and your budget allows it, get a wedding planner! I didn’t, but I think that’s my only regret from the whole process. My stress level was through the roof during much of the wedding process and I think the extra expense would have been completely worth it.

Such a beautiful ceremony! Loved the flowers in the metal tins lining the aisle way.

Margy & Dave’s Ponte Vedra Lodge Wedding — Florida Wedding Florist

Margy & Dave got married 2/23/13 at the Ponte Vedra Lodge and Club.

They used black and white as well as a lot of damask for their colors and theme.

We asked Margy to tell us about her wedding and she shared these snippets and photos with us.

His proposal?

He recreated our first date and proposed at the first place we kissed.

What was the best part of your wedding?

Having my friends and family all in one place, over 50% of my guest were from out of town like Texas, NY, Louisiana and South Carolina so this doesn’t happen too often.

Margy originally called another florist in town but was put off by the phone call, so we asked her why she chose A Fantasy in Flowers.

 I called Susan, at A Fantasy in Flowers, and she immediately made me feel warm, welcome and comfortable.

 

After having my consultation with Amy, I felt like she was reading my mind. Not only did she listen and give me every detail of what I was asking for but she was also very creative and conscious of my budget. I told her exactly what I wanted and she gave exactly  that and more for the price point I was wanting.

 

All my other friends were disappointed with their florist but not me, I was very happy. Anytime I needed anything Susan was there for me she answered all of my questions and helped me keep everything on budget.

What tips would you give others planning a wedding?

USE FANTASY IN FLOWERS TO START!!! They know a lot of local vendors and can help you along the way.

 

Anything else you want to add?

Thank you Susan and Amy for making my day beautiful!

Thank you to Gary, with Naturally Photography for photos from Margy & Dave’s wedding with our flowers.
