Brittany & Billy Hammock Beach Resort 4.5.14

I had such a wonderful time planning out all the fabulous details of this particular wedding with both Bride Brittany and her two amazing parents! Brittany and I hit it off instantly when we had our very first consultation. She is a true sweetheart. It was great bouncing ideas off of each other and of course even better that Brittany allowed me to have some creative freedom which ultimately made for one STUNNING wedding.

Plans were underway a year before the big day was scheduled to happen and many, many meetings later the day finally arrived. I was so excited, although I am always excited for each client:), to finally begin designing all the beautiful blooms.

The wedding was is in shades of Blush Pink, Gold, Silver, Champagne and a pop of Soft Green. Perfect for April nuptials! I loved all the little unqiue details Brittany did, from turning China Plates into table number designations, to the ribbon garland her amazing mother made and hung from the back of her’s and Billy’s seat at the reception to the pearl monogram “H” on top of her cake. Effortless details that made their wedding unlike anyone elses.

Another thing to set Brittany and Billy’s wedding apart from the rest was the freestanding curtain wall with suspended antique window panes that we built for her ceremony backdrop. I love being able to create and custom build unique statement pieces that are not cookie cutter. As my goal is to always “Uniquely Personalize” each and every client’s wedding.

Enough about the wedding.. now onto the “Eye Candy” showcased below. But first… a big Thank You to Brittany and Billy for allowing us to be an important part of your wedding. It was such a pleasure working with you and we wish you all the best in your new adventure of being a “married couple”.

Kristi & Chadd, Ribault Club – Fort George Island 3.22.14

I officially had the pleasure of meeting Kristi, a published author and sports writer, at the Ultimate Fantasy Bridal Show in Ponte Vedra a year before the big “I do” was scheduled to take place. A couple months after our first introduction Kristi reached out to us with hopes that we would be her perfect florist. Well.. I think she was safe in that thinking:)

The wedding was held at the elegant and private Ribault Club up at Fort George Island north east of Jacksonville.  The venue is truly beautiful and has such unique character. It was the perfect place for Kristi and Chadd.

Kristi definitely did not want anything stereotypical for her bouquet florals and centerpieces. Her color palette had a lot to offer, but at the same time, maintaining simplicity in it’s design was important to Kristi. We used lots of different and exotic blooms that aren’t typically used at weddings to give the wedding texture and originality. From pin cushion protea to blue thistle, to peonies and amaryllis, Kristi’s flowers were certainly not lacking in presentation.

Kristi told me after the wedding that many people went out of their way to tell her that her bouquets were the prettiest they’d ever seen. So I’d take that as a job well done in our collaborative efforts:)

It truly was a perfect Florida day for Kristi and Chadd’s wedding. We appreciate so much that they thought enough of us to include us in something so special.

We wish you all the best!

Queency & Scott 03.08.14 – The Casa Monica Hotel

Vibrant Color!! Two words to sum up the beauty of the flowers used for Queency and Scott’s gorgeous wedding at The Casa Monica Hotel in historic St. Augustine.

I spoke with Queency three months before the big “I do” was supposed to happen. After a brief consultation over the phone and a few color and design specifics I was thrilled to be able to create her DREAM wedding! The desired look was vibrant hues with lots of unique textured blooms to weave together a Spanish/Moroccan inspired reception. I always love when any Bride gives me creative freedom to pull her ideas together. It shows me that she has complete confidence in hiring our company and there’s nothing more important than trusting the vendor whom you hire to be a part of your special day.

So fall in LOVE with all the beautiful imagery below showcasing Queency and Scott’s unforgettable wedding.
Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of such a momentous day in your lives!!

Jeanine & Allen – Hammock Beach Resort

Where do I begin on Jeanine’s wedding?? It was gorgeous to say the least! I had such a blast working with Jeanine and her wonderful mother to create and layer the décor of the wedding piece by piece. Jeanine provided a lot of creative freedom for me which I just LOVE because it really gives me the opportunity to design freely. With Jeanine’s specifics in mind, we bounced ideas and came up with the perfect Pink and Gold wedding, best of which was happening on New Years Eve!

We glittered the guest tables with loose gold sequins and even glittered the votive candles to provide sparkly lighting. We used mirrors as table runners to beautifully reflect all the layered candle lighting.  All of these details paired with lush blooms in both blush pink and a pop of hot pink! In addition, a sophisticated presentation of crystals was placed on top of a thin cylinder bud vase and a single rose bloom placed inside. It’s the simple approach to design that makes such an impact! Check out the images below to see each individual brought to life:)

It was such a pleasure working with you Jeanine! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your wedding. Myself and the rest of the RKD Team wish you and Allen all the best!

Jennifer & Jason – The Shores Resort and Spa

Alright, time to stop neglecting our blog! It’s been a crazy wedding season to say the least. 2014 has been nothing short of amazing and 2013 ended with a bang. Here’s a look back at a wedding in November of 2013 at the beautiful Shores Resort and Spa here in Daytona Beach.

Jennifer and Jason had an elegant wedding with subtle hints of beach accents brought in through the centerpieces. Jennifer wanted a simple approach to a beach wedding since the venue itself sat directly on the “Worlds Most Famous Beach”. I always find that using large focal beach accents is the perfect compliment to a beach theme.. small shells and little nick-nacks either get lost or become overly cluttered to where there is no real design. So I opted to use gorgeous white coral shells in the sand boxes for half of the centerpieces and I spray painted coral “fans” a shade of coral to work into the actual floral arrangement of the second centerpiece design. The flowers were stunning!! Coral Charm peonies, coral Movie Star roses, white fluffy hydrangeas, large succulents and white dendrobium orchids added a lot of texture and made for fabulous photos!:)

When it came to laying out the layered design of the reception, less was more and we went subtle in the linen colors with a soft gray with beautiful white chavari chairs. This allowed the coral in the flowers to POP! in the room. Everything just layered together so perfectly and you can see for yourself below…
