Nate & Haley Hammock Beach Resort Wedding 04.13.13

Haley and Nate had an absolutely beautiful wedding with over 200 of their closest family and friends at the oh so fabulous Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast. However.. not without a few glitches along the way. Originally, when Haley and I first sat down together to plan the florals and décor all design plans were based on her wedding being inside of Hammock Beach Resort’s tent… We were going to make a 10ft custom manzanita branch chandelier to hang in the center of the tent that would have suspended votive candles hanging from it. Her dance floor was going to be under the stars with our market lighting hanging over head… Well.. thing’s didn’t go quite as planned. Due to the influx of guests attending she had gone above maximum occupancy and two weeks before the BIG day the reception was moved into the Ocean Ballroom.

Now as Haley said it and I of course would agree.. I would have totally planned my décor differently if I knew I was having it in a ballroom versus an outdoor tent. So without hesitation I offered her the opportunity to come sit down with me and CHANGE everything!! And so we did. Two weeks before the wedding she sat with me in my front showroom and we changed the design to be more appropriate for an indoor setting. Surprisingly she took it the necessary transition very well and in the end everything was GORGEOUS and we had a very happy Bride! Which of course is my ultimate goal.

Thank you Haley and Nate for placing your trust in us! It was a pleasure working with you and congratulations on your new bundle of joy ;)!!!

Wayne & Forcia 04.06.13 Tavern and Chapel in the Garden

Forcia and Wayne’s wedding by far was one of the most elegant and over the top weddings to step through Tavern and Chapel in the Garden’s door!! However if you were to know anything about Forcia, you’d understand that it was the perfect representation of who she is. I remember the day the three of us sat down together along with their planner, Katie from the Tavern. Forcia said few things to me to best describe what she envisioned for her wedding…but those few words were enough to sum it all up! BLING! OVER THE TOP! FLOWERS! Pretty much all she had to say to me after that was.. GO! Because I was in full design mode. Nothing was too much nor was anything off the table!

Her and Wayne are absolutely do adorable together and while she was gracious to consider his input it was clear who was going to win 😉 So within a couple short hours of brainstorming and browsing our studio to decide on vase wear, we had it all figured out and well… the rest is “fabulous” history!  And as you can see the pictures speak for themselves.

So a VERY special Thank You to Forcia and Wayne for choosing us to be a part of their amazing day and for placing so much trust in our hands to make it perfect for them! We wish you both all the best!!

Stephen & Krista 03.02.13 – Hammock Beach Resort

All the planning began Krista about a year before the wedding.. all of which via email! As Stephen and Krista’s wedding was a destination wedding to the stunning Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast. There are many clients that I actually do not get to meet until the very day of the wedding. So being very detailed is key and what we do best!

Krista was so wonderful to work with and so laid back. Her design goal was evident when she first sent me her inspiration photos, the goal… “Vintage, Clean and Simple” I could tell that she was a no fuss kind of Bride so as we began collaborating our ideas we came up with the perfect fit for her beautiful tent wedding. Unfortunately… the day of the wedding, the Florida wind had something to say about it.

We had planned for this AMAZING one of a kind backdrop for her Ceremony altar space that would include the use of suspended vintage window frames. But as we all know, Florida is very unpredictable.. so due to the safety of herself and her guests we were unable to construct what would have been a showpiece at the event. But, Krista did NOT let that phase her… She kept a smile on her face and rolled with the punches. In the end, she had a wonderful wedding and the most important part of it all, she married the love of her life.

Our mission was accomplished, we had another very HAPPY Bride and you can tell just by reading the wonderful reviews she gave us (See Below)

Thank you Krista and Stephen for allowing us to be a part of your wedding. I loved working with you Krista, and thank you for your thoughtful gift!
