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.

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!

Best of on Wedding Wire — Wedding Florist in Jacksonville, Fla

Thank you to all of our brides, grooms and their parents for voting for A Fantasy in Flowers and making us a 2011 winner on Wedding Wire for one of the best wedding florists in the area.

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish you and yours a Happy New Year! We hope you had a great holiday season with those you loved. And may this year bring you good health, and a happy home filled with friends, family and of course flowers!

The Nest! — North Florida Wedding Florist

It’s time for another “Inspiration Bouquet.”

At a Fantasy in Flowers, we call this one, “The Nest.”

Floral Designer Amy Dwarika created this bouquet using  soft pink spray roses, peaches and cream Asiatic Lilies, green tea hypericum, eggshell white Hydrangeas and peacock feathers, white washed curly willow and ivory silver dollar springs.

While the peacock feathers add a nice touch of color and whimsy they are also believed to symbolize the “all seeing” church in Christianity, along with the holiness and sanctity associated with it.

Amy was inspired to create the bouquet by the thought of home and unconditional love–thus the nest of flowers!

Light pink roses typically imply sweetness and elegance. This also contributes to the thought of sweet little birds or love birds.

Amy loved how birds each contribute a piece of themselves to the nest or home.This is symbolic of what a marriage is. Each person joins a piece of themselves to make a family unit.

Wedding planners, feel free to share this blog and concept with your brides! Bird themes are really big right now, especially for cake toppers.

This would be an ideal bouquet for a Spring or garden wedding.

Thank you to those who contributed to this shoot!
