enchanted wedding, part five

Well. So far we’ve talked style, photography, stationary and fashion, but have neglected to muse about one of my most beloved wedding details…the magnificent flowers. Our floral decor (and beyond) was envisioned and created by the talented team of Kim and Jim Wilson (and crew!) I was so lucky to have a personal connection to floral genius. Kim happens to be a lovely friend of my mom’s in Cincinnati, and has a long distinguished career in the area. The process was wonderfully collaborative, and began with me sharing pieces of my vision related to color, pattern, structure and construction. Kim provided feedback, asked questions and generated ideas against my verbal and visual inspiration.

Kim knew all about my dreams of red (…crimson, scarlet, burgundy & cherry!) and despite the challenging timing (you want all shades of red flowers on Valentine’s weekend!?!) she made my dream a beautiful reality.

Imagine my delight when the gorgeous bunches from the warehouse transformed overnight into…

The lush shades of red combined with pops of bright green to create a festive and romantic palette. The black & white ribbon on the bouquets hearkened back to an element represented in our stationary suite, and felt reminiscent of the vintage Valentine feel we were creating. Later I can share other amazing touches like the potted trees (with twinkle lights!) and candles in hurricanes filled with red fruit. Speaking of later…

I am counting the days until our entire library of professional shots is ready so I can share how each element came together to create the enchanted evening of February 12, 2011. Until then, the inspiration posts have been fun to catalog. Thanks for following 🙂
