If this yellow wedding doesn’t put a little pep in your step- we don’t know what will! Yellow is the happiest of hues and a perfect fit for Jenny & Adam’s spring wedding reception at The White Room in downtown St. Augustine.
The couple selected one of St. Augustine’s most popular downtown venues for their wedding reception. The White Room is absolutely gorgeous. It has a timeless, southern elegance ambiance. From the exposed brick, large white columns, breathtaking water view and glamours finishing touches (the crystal chandelier and fabric draping are exquisite), there isn’t much not to love!
Fantasy Floral Details:
We used a mix of yellow roses, white spray roses, and yellow tulips with a greenery base for the bouquets- each wrapped with a creamy ivory ribbon. Jenny’s was twice the size of the bridesmaids and also included daffodils (one of our favorite spring blooms symbolizing new beginnings/rebirth). Be it size, floral choice or color combination, we encourage the bride to have a bouquet that is unique to her.
Jenny & her flower girls wore a fresh floral accent their hair. White for Jenny (to match Adam) and yellow for the lovely littles.
The groom’s boutonniere was made with a white rose, while the groomsmen wore yellow.
Centerpieces of the same florals were created in a mix of low and mid-height. They were the perfect pop of color against the white linen and deep mahogany chiavari chairs.
The simple, one-tier textured buttercream cake was topped with fresh yellow garden & spray roses, accented with Lily of the Incas (more commonly known as Peruvian lilies, and symbolic of devotion).
We wish the couple happiness, eternal devotion, the joy of lifelong friendship and true love- just as their flowers symbolize!

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!
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.
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!
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!
