Kathy + Raymond at Lake Lanier Islands Resort

15 Sep

We’ve always loved designing weddings with pink touches, and this romantic wedding at the Monarch, Pineisle Center of  Lake Lanier Islands Resort was blush pink gorgeous!

The stunning Kathy carried  a lush bouquet filled with touches of  blush pink  – – her bridesmaids pretty in blush pink gowns also held bouquets designed with pink roses and hydrangeas. Ivory, curtain style altar draping with matching flower clusters were designed with hydrangeas, peonies, and roses. A silver chandelier hung in the center!  An amazingly elegant ceremony – – then.. Kathy and Raymond released doves into the sky.

A Beautiful reception followed in the ballroom of Pineisle Center.

We appreciate these photos from Theary Meak Photography.

Congratulations Kathy and Raymond!

Katie + Evan at Lake Lanier Islands, Legacy Pointe

12 Jan

Katie and Evan had a gorgeous Fall Wedding held at Lake Lanier Islands Resort, Legacy Pointe.  Katie’s Bouquet was arranged with Vendela Roses, Blue Hydrangeas, Sunflowers, and Mini Calla Lilies wrapped in ivory satin with a chocolate braid.  Elegant yet perfectly simple.  Smokey blue colors dominated this serene outdoor ceremony.  Golden lit grapevine balls twinkling underneath the Legacy Pointe tent awaited this happy couple as they celebrated this magical evening with family and friends!

Jessica + Drew at Lake Lanier Islands, PineIsle Point

27 Dec

This is no ordinary Wedding Day. In Fact, no Wedding, by Design House is ever “ordinary.” One of the many compliments we receive from our Brides is how special, unique, and remarkable their Dream Day was for them because of the incredible Design House staff. Exceptional, indeed, this memorable, Fall Wedding held at Lake Lanier Islands, PineIsle Point was certainly far from mundane or atypical.  The stunningly gorgeous Jessica, slightly familar to Design House of Flowers, and all the amazing people involved with her wedding, is the daughter, of Design House Owner, Pamela Holley.  Thanks to Laura Birney, Wedding Coordinator, Mom had the night off to embrace and enjoy this very special day with her daughter.  Jessica’s Bridal Bouquet was nothing short of spectacular designed with blush pink hydrangeas, white roses, white ranunculus, white dahlias, blush pink snowberries and freesia wrapped in ivory satin adorned with a rhinestone broach. Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets wrapped in satin navy ribbon also adorned with rhinestones.  The North Georgia weather was idyllic with breathtaking views of Lake Lanier.  The ceremony arbor was dressed in Champagne and sheer fabric drapery with Crystal Chandeliers hung on each end opening!  Simply Elegant.  Oversized floral clusters filled with various roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, and orchids complimented the arbor drapery.  Guests waited anxiously as Jessica was escorted down the aisle by her beautiful best friend – Mom. As you can imagine an exquisite reception followed with guest tables designed with oversized florals, candleabras, gold candlesticks, and votives. More noticably – the Head table displayed long smoked cubes filled with flower bed clusters extending the end of this magnificent royal blue Estate table. The Bridesmaid bouquets were placed inside the cubes surrounded by champagne flutes.  The evening carried into the night as Jessica and Drew enjoyed dancing with family and friends to the jamming music hosted by close family friend, DJ Sir Charles.  Quite the celebration!

Thank you Carmen with Atlanta Photo Studio for capturing our favorite Dream wedding couple!!

No .. nothing “ordinary” about this Design House wedding – -proudly, we’re NOT the least bit afraid to boast about this EXTRA ordinary couple.

And – we think, hmm, we know,  Design House Owner, mother of the bride, is extremely proud of  her daughter .. and.. her staff.

Congratulations Jessica and Drew!

Brandy and Donnie were such a joy to work with! The couple had a picturesque wedding set outside overlooking Lake Sidney Lanier. They were married at the Pineisle Pointe site at Lake Lanier Islands Resort in Buford, GA, which is one of favorite venues! Brandy had a fabulous “bling” theme using a color palette of hot pink, guava & lime green. She chose a beautiful combination of flowers including gerber daises, hydrangeas, peonies, roses and lisianthus. The pomanders which adorned their wedding aisle during the ceremony doubled as the table centerpieces at their reception. The lush arrangements were the perfect addition to their decor! We loved everything about this wedding and are so thankful to have been a part of Brandy & Donnie’s big day! Amy Arrington Photography captured all the beauty of Brandy & Donnie’s big day in their amazing photographs, which you can see below.  A huge thanks to them for sharing their work with us!
