I was so happy to see Ashley and Ben's wedding featured in the Real Weddings section of Gulf Coast Bride Magazine! When Ashley first contacted me I was so intrigued by her style and color selection. The wedding was to take place at Sunset Beach. A small, intimate, upscale beach community. The time frame was early spring. Many brides love the soft, pastel colors for beach ceremonies so having the opportunity to work with this bright red color was going to present a design challenge that I fully embraced! The flower choices continued to evolve as the wedding day approached. Ashley wanted tropical flowers but wanted to be careful as to not over use any one particular color...specifically purple! The flowers I chose were Calla lilies, protea, orchids, rice flower, alstroemerias, and palm along with a few other fillers. The result was a lush, sophisticated tropical look. I'm hoping other brides will consider taking this bold step with color choices and trust their wedding florist to produce a unique, beautiful result!
