Real Wedding: Stacey and James

I โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œcolor. I grow flowers in just about every color imaginable: deep corals, vibrant reds, blush pinks, smokey purples. We even grow flowers that are so dark and dramatic, they look almost black (Black Hero Tulips are STUNNING).

But sometimes, too much color can be overwhelming. Especially for a wedding. So what do you do? You take your cue from nature, and green everything up (and throw in some white for balance). Isnโ€™t nature the best? ๐Ÿ’š

The photos below were taken in our wildflower meadow and in our wildlife habitat/forest area, but you could take gorgeous photos anywhere you can find a beautiful backdrop of green trees.

Stacey knew she wanted to run with a classic green and white theme for her wedding, and with Jennโ€™s guidance, they came up with a very fresh and modern take on this color combination.

Just look at this GORGEOUS green and white flower cloud (flower clouds are one of our signature design elements) suspended over Stacey and Jamesโ€™ head table. Stunning!

Lots of greenery mixed with white flowers is actually my favorite wedding combination, and itโ€™s the floral color palette I chose for my own wedding a loooooooong time ago. ๐Ÿ˜‰ These two colors are so timeless that my photos look like they could have been taken yesterday (well, if you just focus on the flowers, and not necessarily on Chris and I, ha!)

White and green were even my go-to colors for the barn itself, and if a couple is uncertain about what colors to choose for their wedding, I always tell them to go with green and white. #noregrets

 
White barn + Lots of natural greenery = ๐Ÿ˜

Staceyโ€™s bouquet was a lovely example of white and green flowers, and it really showcases Jennโ€™s organic, garden-and-gathered floral design style. The video below captured it beautifully.

 
 

The ceremony pergola was covered in greenery, but Jenn offset it just slightly so one side was higher and covered with white flowers. The asymmetrical effect was subtle, but framed the couple in a unique way.

Inside the barn, we gave the flower cloud installation a modern touch by adding tiny glass globes filled with votives.

The table arrangements were very classic, and we always love using taper candles to add a soft glow. If you take a close look, youโ€™ll notice that Stacey and James used our honey sticks (which were bundled and put at each place setting) as favors.

And I always love it when a wedding ends with sparkle! โœจ
