It was a combination of so many things that made this wedding absolutely fabulous. It all started with an adorable and vibrant couple…Mary Jane and Michael! Throw in impeccable design by Rebecca Rose Events, super fun patterns, a bright color palette, and a couple filled with trust in their venders!
Mary Jane carried a hand-tied style bouquet filled with texture including ranunculus, craspedia, solidago, iris, and blue thistle….
Her bridesmaids carried a similar style bouquet, but pulled in more of the vibrant red!
The flower girls carried not a traditional basket…but a bucket of petals…
The reception was an afternoon luncheon on the patio at SECCA. We hung blooms over some of the long tables…
And used tall vases of forsythia on the round tables…
I just had to include this cool shot of the hanging blooms…
It was a beautiful day, beautiful couple, beautiful wedding. I felt blessed to be a part of it!

The Granary Barn at WinMock
is a great space for a wedding. We had fun getting creative with flowers and decorating this amazing venue.
First, we created a unique floral backdrop for the ceremony and hung candles which provided a soft glow. So elegant!
We used similar flowers for the bouquets and featured handmade burlap flowers. The burlap fabric was even mixed with seeded eucalyptus leaves for an unexpected twist.
The purple color scheme and casual burlap accents gave this casually elegant wedding the right touch!
Best wishes to the happy couple!
What a night! Newly engaged brides and their fiancés, parents and friends enjoyed a champagne reception, viewed three rooms styled by Rebecca Rose Events and learned the latest tips and trends from Becca Atchison of Rebecca Rose Events all in an amazing setting of The Graylyn Estate.
In the first room, the Persian Card Room, we used a large centerpiece and dramatic lighting. The floral arrangement was made up of hydrangea, bells of Ireland and agonis after dark. We kept the setting traditional so it wouldn’t compete with the ornate room.
The color scheme for the Front Porch was pink, red and burgundy. We used three tall arrangements across the long rectangular table. Garland of red twig dogwood, caspia and wax flowers stretched down the table. You can see the apples and candles added the finishing touch along with the Bon Appétit place setting.
The Sun Room was full of whimsy and peach and white carnations. Hanging the flowers from the chandelier made it look like they were floating. We also used various size glass vases filled with dusty miller, carnatons and ranunculous. Even the fountain was decorated with floating candles and carnations.
Traci Arney Photography took all of these stunning images. Special thanks to Abigail Seymour Photography for the production assistance, inspiring styling by Becca and Graylyn for hosting!
We hope you’ll join us next time!
We were thrilled to design the centerpieces for the Old Town Club Holiday Party on December 9, 2011. The partridge in a pear tree theme was so much fun, and the black, white, green, and silver color scheme was a departure from the usual holiday red.
In creating the centerpieces, we played off the circular pattern on the linen and came up with the circle design to create the tree. Then many pears were spray-painted black and silver.
In order to create these gigantic “trees,” most of the work was done at our off-site workshop.
Each tree had a black silhouette of a partridge that sparkled with black glitter. The rings on the trees were suspended with fishing line to give the appearance they were floating. Fresh pine garland was used as the base on the rings. Bells of Ireland, green dendrobian orchids, green buttons, green spider mums and plumosa fern were the other fresh materials used.
The finishing touch: Napkin rings made out of black flat wire, black glitter paper leaves and a green button mum.
We hope you’ve been inspired to create your own holiday masterpiece!
We’re throwing a party and you’re ALL invited to stop by! Great food, great drinks, a great space and even better company.
Hope you can make it! ~Amy
The setting was lovely at the Belmont on Saturday. It was great meeting so many brides and sharing my vintage arrangements.
First, I want to thank everyone that came out on Saturday to Women Connect. There was a HUGE turnout – I think over 400 people attended! All that attended not only got lots of useful information, they helped to support the women-based businesses in our community. I found the entire event inspiring!
I had a fabulous time getting ready for the day. I was asked to have a “demonstration” at my booth (I was a bit unsure about this!). This turned out to be a lot of fun and I think many people who stopped by were able to learn a trick or two about floral design! I used my old door as a prop to display an alternative to a traditional wreath. I showed how to make easy flower balls, napkin rings, and a give-away centerpiece.
I met so many supportive and interested attendees AND made lots of connections with other businesses. Some of the highlights for me included:
- meeting Brian from nu expression - a marketing company that I plan on contacting for some assistance!
- Scheduling a massage with Gail Williams from therapeutiks!
- Getting a gift certificate (I plan on using!) from Your Pilates Place
- Picking up “Story Starters” from Dr. Cathleen Pittman of A Step Ahead - great reading techniques to teach my kids!
- Meeting a new event planner from E’Magine
- Learning about all the different types of faux finishing from A Different Kind of Canvas - there are many very beautiful ways to cover your cabinets or walls besides just paint!
- Buying a super fun ring from Jewelry XOX
- Watching the very talented Lisa Miller from Simply Southern Photography take head shots of attendees for their facebook page…she took a picture of me too!
In a nutshell, if you missed the event watch out for it next year – you don’t want to miss it again!
