Now, before you have an anxiety attack reading this (because we can see how it could make your heart race and your palms sweat), know that this story, when all said and done, ends happily! But we have to give you the not-so-happy story that leads up to this memorable day to appreciate how beautifully it came together.
Amanda and Edin faced a natural disaster while wedding planning, that set them back nearly six months. As they watched their wedding day approach on the calendar, they watched a massive hurricane, not so affectionately knowns as Matthew, approach the east coast of Florida. Due to hit St. Augustine eye on. And boy did it ever. The entire downtown area was flooded – with most of the businesses in this quaint destination location under four feet of water. In the wake of the storm, between the storm surge and incessant rain that caused severe flooding, the town was without power and public water for days (for some, weeks) following the storm. They faced the absolute worst case scenarios for a Florida wedding planned during hurricane season. Having to reschedule the entire occasion.
Fortunately, the entire vendor team was local and close to the tragedy. Our hearts hurt with them! We didn’t have to image what they were going through because we knew. Fortunately, they also had an amazing wedding planner, and with more than a few phone calls + emails, the had a new date set and planning commenced. Again.
Fantasy Floral Details
The color combination was feminine and soft- lots of pink hues paired with bright and creamy whites. Florals were an important element to the couple (which, of course, we fully support). They wanted lush, full blooms with high impact.
Amanda’s cascading style bouquet included white dendrobium orchids, white calla lilies, Esperance roses, blush spray roses and greenery.
Bridesmaids carried white football mums, white hypericum berries, blush + white spray roses, and bright pink roses.
The ceremony chuppah & reception centerpieces included the same florals already mentioned, as well as white hydrangea, babies breath, blush garden roses, soft blush pink roses, white button mums and white chrysanthemums.
With the exception of Amanda’s bouquet, all the florals had full, rounded shapes. It was lovely and luxurious.
The couple was thrilled with the result. And although it was hard to admit, it was worth the wait! The weathered a tough storm, and we have faith that they can get through anything in their marriage!
Ps- we highly recommend wedding insurance year round, but especially from June 1- November 30.
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!
