What a treat to design for this sweet Hickory wedding. It was even sweeter for me since this is my hometown!
The flowers were a mix of deep jewel tones designed with a natural style. We used garden roses, tulips, spray roses, antique hydrangea…and so much more (even some chocolate artichokes!). The bride was so trusting and laid back…that made it even more fun. I was given a little direction and then creative freedom - my favorite situation!
Probably the most interesting part of this wedding was that BOTH venues were under construction when I first met the clients. I am sure this added a bit of stress, but I found it so exciting. I was going to be one of the first to design for a wedding in both spaces. The ceremony took place in in Grace Chapel on campus at Lenoir Rhyne University. The word that comes to mind when I think of Grace Chapel is breathtaking!
The reception was held at Moretz Mills - another new venue! I could go on and on about the space. The atmosphere was a mix of old and new. It obviously had a warehouse feel to it since it was originally a hosiery mill. But...the art, fixtures, and details gave it a contemporary twist. I can't say enough about how cool this space is.
