Choosing the right florals for your wedding day is so important. It’s a way to express your personality and to make a statement about the love you and your partner share. In many cases, the floral design is what sets the tone and feel for your wedding day.
This was especially true for Nina and Jaiden’s late summer wedding. Their wish for their wedding was to create a shared community experience with their friends and family. So they kept their design simple, with a focus on natural beauty and lots of florals!
Durham Springs in Bucks County, Pennsylvania is truly the perfect spot for an elegant, outdoor wedding with breathtaking country charm. Nina’s BHLDN gown is simple and sophisticated, while Jaiden’s Earnesto suit has a clean, bold design. The simplicity of these elements, allows for the florals to set a specific ambiance and mood for the day.
Bouquets and Boutonnieres
Nina’s bridal and bridesmaid bouquets were designed to compliment the pretty simplicity of their dresses with an abundance of blush and peach florals, and a touch of grey/green texture.
These bouquets feature some of our favorite seasonal blooms, including lisianthus, ranunculus, zinnias, carnations, hydrangeas, roses, and a pop of Iris.
It’s not everyday that we get to feature boutonnieres. They are an important complement to the bouquets and are a great opportunity to incorporate meaning and symbolism into your wedding day. Ranunculus symbolize charm and beauty, which couldn’t be more perfect for Nina and Jaiden’s wedding day!
For this wedding’s ceremony florals, we used an asymmetrical arbor design and fastened chair florals along the aisle. The chair florals draw you in, while the arbor piece creates a visual anchor. When we design asymmetrical floral pieces, we typically place the larger of the two pieces on the right, to balance out the florals held by the wedding party on the left.
Nina and Jaiden’s table pieces were designed by repurposing the arbor pieces. The ceremony is so short, and it would be such a shame for the florals to be out of sight immediately after, so we often will repurpose those pieces at the reception. For the long tables pictured though, we started with a spilling ruscus table runner, and then added drifts of florals to create a cohesive and extravagant look. The round tables were adorned with small round arrangements that were meant to feel light and airy by incorporating delicate and textured elements like limonium and fern.
