Enchanting Coastal Wedding at The Treasury On The Plaza

Romance is in the air with Alyson & Bryan’s Enchanting Coastal Wedding.

Today we are so excited to share with you this Enchanting Coastal Wedding. From bridal bouquets to centerpieces we have adorned every aspect of this beautiful day with our blooms! Speaking of bridal bouquets Alyson’s bouquet was created with white hydrangea, roses & soft orchids. Each bridesmaids bouquet was a cluster of white hydrangea with roses nestled in between. Bryan was a dashing groom in his black tux accented with a white orchid boutonniere. 

Alyson & Bryan chose The Treasury on The Plaza as their reception venue. The Treasury on The Plaza is one of the most sought after wedding locations in St. Augustine. In the entryway to the reception guests were greeted with tall glass pillar holders filled with blooms of hydrangea & glistening candlelight set beside the sweetest guest book frame of signed hearts from their loved ones.

The reception hall looked completely enchanting from the shimmering table linens and dinnerware to the towering gold centerpieces that decorated the dining tables. Set in front of the historical 1927 vault,  Alyson & Bryan’s sweetheart table featured a glittering table cloth of blue as the backdrop for more of our gorgeous flowers.  White and blue hydrangea along with quicksand roses, dark purple Dendrobium orchid’s, amnesia roses, burgundy Cymbidium orchid’s, ivory roses, black bocarra roses, memoryLane roses & burgundy mums came together for the most romantic centerpieces. Lovely Mr. & Mrs. wooden signs finished off the look for their table. The amazing gold stands were decorated using the same flowers and each one was then draped with Ivory pearls.

As they all danced the night away & had the most illuminating exit we can honestly say that Alyson & Bryan’s wedding was nothing short of fabulous! 

From our bride Alyson: ‘I cannot rave about Susan and Amy enough!! They were absolutely amazing and their vision exceeded my expectations. Their work is worth every penny and I wouldn’t have traded them for the world! Thank you for all that you did for our special day on 01/21/2017 ‘.

Multi-Cultural Destination Wedding

Today’s Multi-Cultural Destination Wedding will leave you in awe! 

Rewa & Michaels’ wedding is a fantastic fusion of two cultures coming together for one love. This lovely couple resides in Atlanta but dreamed of celebrating their big day in Florida at the incredible Club Continental. Combining Rewa’s Hindu background & Michael’s Christian background they decided to honor both of their upbringings with 2 ceremonies. 

Rewa’s traditional wedding ceremony was nothing short of mesmerizing, her family provided the customary Mandap decorated with vibrant fabric & banana leaves. These weddings featured 2 outfit changes from stunning red & gold embroidered traditional Hindu attire to a beautiful turquoise sari & a snazzy gray suit.

We decorated the large altar arrangements with white mums, white hydrangea, white snapdragons, red carnations & red mokara orchids.  Rewa’s bridal bouquet was positively sensational with red anemones, seeded euch, white hydrangea & red hypericum berries and was then wrapped in gold for a finishing touch.

The reception hall was adorned in red & gold accents, from the gold table linens to the red candles to our floral centerpieces. The centerpieces were in gold compotes with red mokara orchids, red carnations, red asiatic lilies white hydrangea & red hypericum berries, everything was so colorful & warm. We can’t forget the eye-catching 3 tiered buttercream cake featuring small red blooms & berries pulling every detail together!

Appleseed Photography captured such wonderful moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Classic River House Wedding

Krissy & Patrick’s Classic River House Wedding is nothing short of spectacular. Overlooking Matanzas River in St. Augustine surrounded by their loved ones, Krissy & Patrick said “I Do” while standing under a beautifully decorated arch of hydrangea & swagging garland.

Krissy looked absolutely stunning, as if she stepped out of a romantic vintage movie. Her bridal bouquet perfectly complimented her classic look, created with white roses, Israeli ruscus & eucalyptus, while each of her bridesmaids carried hand tied hydrangea bouquets. Our groom patrick also sported a  very classic rose boutonniere with sprigs of Israeli ruscus.

Sweet flower girls dusted the ceremony aisle with petals as Krissy & her dad made their way to the alter. For the reception we decorated the long farm table with a garland of eucalyptus and re-purposed the bridesmaids bouquets by placing them in bubble bowls which  made for amazing centerpieces.

Crystal Bos Photography was there to capture every special moment from Krissy getting ready to their first look to the unforgettable bubble send off.

Romantic Outdoor Nautical Wedding – Ponte Vedra Inn & Club

It’s not everyday that your only daughter gets married. When an extraordinary occasion occurs you need an extraordinary event location to bring it all together. That’s why for Katie & Mark’s Romantic Outdoor Nautical Wedding they chose none other than the luxurious oceanfront Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.

Their Romantic Outdoor Nautical Wedding was positively a dream come true. Fun nautical details can be found throughout their wedding. A custom sailing knot designed by Ginny Krauss & Patricia from Fancy Girl Designs became their trademark logo. From the bridesmaids monogrammed robes to the fun cornhole board to the signature sticker this personalized touch was unforgettable.

Katie was the epitome of perfection in her strapless lace gown with a sweetheart neckline. Her bridal bouquet featured soft pink garden roses with pops of bubblegum pink roses, cream colored ranunculus & touches of anemones. Keeping with the nautical theme, Mark sported a navy suit jacket with a blue striped tie & boat shoes. His boutonniere was a perfect single anemone bud.

For their outdoor ceremony we transformed the oceanfront courtyard into a floral dream. Stunning green foliage intertwined with pink roses was draped over the balustrade and coordinating floral swag adorned the guests seating. As magical as their outdoor ceremony was decorated the reception hall was over the top amazing showcasing a floral wall. The strinking floral partition with lush hydrangeas, roses & lots of green leafage became the perfect backdrop for the bride & grooms table. A cascading runner of roses & cream hydrangeas swept over the table while shimmering gold fabric was woven down the back of the head chairs and decorated with even more beautiful blooms.

Lush pink & gold accents were used in creating their magnificent soiree. Tall floral centerpieces, pink glistening table linens and gold votives are just a few of the special touches. Dan Harris perfectly captured Katie & Mark’s big day and we couldn’t be more thankful.

Romantic Plantation Wedding

On a lovely September day Nicole & Elisha said, “I Do” to an everlasting love together at their Romantic Plantation Wedding at Bowing Oaks Plantation.

Nicole’s parents Karen & John just so happen to own the event planning business Mugwumps that helped make their day even more special. Set under a rustic alter gathered with family & friends, wedding photographer Jamie owner of Couture Studios captured every magical moment of their romantic plantation wedding. Dreamy hues of purple were used throughout this wedding. Nicole’s bridal bouquet was created using lavender roses, dark purple lisianthus and baby’s breath. Her bridesmaids wore one shoulder knee length plum dresses & carried bouquets of light green hydrangea. The centerpieces and altar arrangements contained lavender roses, light green hydrangea, purple liatrus,  lavender pom poms and baby’s breath. The mason jar floral centerpieces were placed on wooden slices and the arrangements used for the ceremony were placed on wine barrels in keeping with the overall rustic look of Bowing Oaks. The scrumptious buttercream cake was adorned with purple blooms. Right before the ceremony the rain started to became very strong but they didn’t miss a beat, the bridal party entered with umbrellas and everything went off as scheduled. Jamie was able to snap amazing pictures that were almost made even better by the rain!

Everything about Nicole & Elisha’s wedding was positively spectacular and we are so happy to have been apart of it.

Princess & Brian’s Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens Wedding

On a Saturday in May, Princess & Brian said, “I do” in a beautiful church ceremony. They chose us, A Fantasy in Flowers to make all their floral dreams come true.

Princess was a vision wearing an all lace gown. Her luscious bridal bouquet was created with lime green hydrangeas, pastel pink lisianthus, bubblegum pink esperance roses & light pink spray roses. We absolutely love how the lime green hydrangeas really pop! Princess’ bridal party wore coordinating pastel floor length dresses, they each carried full voluminous bouquets of white hydrangeas.
Brian’s boutonniere was a cluster of lydia pink spray roses and italian ruscus which perfectly complimented his grey suit. The groomsmen’s boutonnieres were a white eskimo roses and baby’s breath.
The reception venue at The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens was the ideal location for their elegant soiree. Wedding coordinator Christina Kopecki of Christina’s Kreations designed a romantic setting with sweeping swags of fabric & luxurious lightening. We created low centerpieces using birch vases that were filled with white garden roses, green hydrangea, pink esperance roses and light pink stock, the table was finished with sparkling table numbers, while the cocktail tables were adorned with light pink hydrangeas.
Thank you for including us in your big day. Here’s to a love everlasting!

Sawgrass Mariott Bridal Show — North Florida Wedding & Event Florist

We recently set up at the Sawgrass Mariott Bridal Show. It was so nice to see so many of our current brides as well as to meet so many potential brides!

I do have to say that probably the biggest hit in our booth had to be our designer Amy Dwarika’s hand painted work, including these marvelous bridal shoes!

She received soooo many nice compliments from brides and vendors about them. She’s already started taking orders from brides. She can hand paint them in a fun and funky styling like this to match your wedding day decor, flowers or just something different to reflect your personality! We can’t wait to see her shoes popping up in our clients’ wedding day photos!

If you didn’t get a chance to stop by and see them, no worries, come by UNF this Sunday from 1-4pm for their bridal show, we’ll be there!

Thank you Christy Whitehead for the photos!

We’re moved–come see the new shop! — North Florida Wedding & Event Flowers

The summer of 2011 has brought both a new location and a new look to A Fantasy in Flowers.

Since our last post, we have officially moved from our San Jose location to our new design studio on County Road 210 at 110 Cumberland Park Drive in suite 108. And we couldn’t be happier with the move.

We have a new workspace in the back of the shop that is much better for our talented designers to work and for our delivery staff to pick up event orders.

The staff loves it and we feel much more organized to do every day work as well as our many weddings and events.

We even have a back door to our design studio, unlike our past location, so no more hauling flowers through the lobby.

And speaking of our lobby, we are especially proud of our new showroom area. We have designed it in rich and bold orange tones with sage, chrome and glass incorporated throughout.

It is much more comfortable for consults as well as visually stimulating, all in an effort to allow our brides and event planners the chance to relax, feel welcome and be creative with their floral needs. We provide a complimentary consultation to all our new brides where a floral design artist sits with the bride to assist in creating a floral vision for the bride’s big day.

The bride can also tour the work space area, and take a look in the cooler to see and handle flowers getting a very hands on experience.

Getting married or have an event? Give us a call and come see our new studio: 904-268-7022

A Fantasy in Flowers is North Florida’s premier florist, well known and well loved by brides. We have been voted the best florist in town by Jacksonville Magazine, Wedding Wire and The Knot.  Let us show you why we are different.

We’re moving! — North Florida Florist

If you hadn’t gotten one of our postcards or heard– we’re moving!

But don’t worry, we aren’t going far, and our service area is remaining the same.

We have moved off County Road 210 in St. John’s County: 110 Cumberland Park, #108

We are excited about the new space which is a blank canvas for us to design from the ground up with a new meeting area to meet with brides and corporate clients.

New photos coming soon!

We made the cover of San Marco Magazine — North Florida Florist

If you live in Jacksonville and are in the San Marco area, pick up a copy of the Spring issue of San Marco Magazine. One of our bouquets is featured on the cover!

And look for our new ad in that issue!
