Hannah + Michael at Legacy Pointe, Lake Lanier Islands

6 Apr

Congratulations to Hannah and Michael who married on a perfect Fall day at Lake Lanier Islands Resort, Legacy Pointe.  Hannah looked absolutely stunning!

Elegance and Bling were prominent among the blush Anna roses, calla lilies, and ivory hydrangeas all wrapped in satin ribbon with a round bling broach. Gorgeous Bouquets~

Once the Georgia Doves were released, it was time for the happy couple to celebrate!

Silver, Blush and  BLING!  Design House loves sparkly decor. The estate table was an amazing trio of bling wrapped halo vases with loose crystals and floating candles. Ivory hydrangeas and silver votives surrounded the decor. We also designed guest tables with tall silver candelabra floral arrangements filled with calla lilies, blush roses, hydrangeas and hanging crystals. Flowing ceiling drapery with twinkling lights glowed warmly to compliment this memorable evening.

Jenny + Andrew at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort

5 Sep

Beautiful Jenny brought a little cowboy country to Chateau Elan Winery and Resort. This awesome couple were married on a summer evening at the Winery lawn. Bridesmaids styled in blue dresses all uniquely different, but, ALL wearing their fashionable cowboy boots.  Design House loved creating her full round bridal bouquet with hydrangeas, coral peonies, yellow sunset calla lilies, orange gladiola blooms, and hot pink ranunculus. Absolutely stunning as the colors transcended to the Winery Pavilion reception where “Coral” dominated the guest tables along with blooming manzanita trees, and colorfully elegant floral centerpieces. Even the dance floor had pink, orange, guava, and yellow lit paper lanterns glowing from the draped twinkling ceiling! So much fun – Such a festively perfect night.

Wonderful photos by Angel Wings Photography – – Thank you!

Congratulations Jenny and Andrew!

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!

Mary + Adam at 550 Trackside, Lawrenceville, GA

5 Feb

Vintage + Rustic = Elegance.  Mary and Adam were married at 550 Trackside, a unique event venue, nestled in cozy downtown Lawrenceville, Georgia. Everything so delicately created by Design House of Flowers, Weddings and Events. Mary’s bridal bouquet wrapped in ivory lace and pearls was filled with mango callas, roses, orange dahlias, silver brunia berries and a touch of eucalyptus.  This charming ceremony setting is straight from the Architecture Digest as lanterns lined the aisle, tree light stands surrounded the altar, and historic brick walls framed the audience. The happy couple shared their vows at this beautiful rustic arch with ivory curtain draping touched by Floral sprays, Hydrangeas, Orange Dahlias, Callas, and Rio Chilis Roses. Following the ceremony, Design House quickly turned this remarkable room to Reception Ballroom.  Lantern topped tables and cylinder floral vases captured the continuity of fall color on the guest tables.  Twinkle lights and perfectly placed candles complimented every turn in this romantic evening.  Similar to a movie setting feeling as you are consumed with being swept away with this extraordinary atmosphere.  A beautiful, celebratory mood, only to perhaps – – “hopefully” – – be slightly interrupted by the nearby train whistle.

Yes– Vintage Elegance for sure.

We thank 375 Photography for their amazing photos.

Congratulations Mary and Adam!

Katie + Bryan’s Fall Wedding at Lake Lanier Islands, PineIsle Pointe

28 Jan

We loved loved designing this wedding!  Katie and Bryan were a pleasure  to work with and Design House was honored to be involved with creating this elegant decor – – accented by lovely floral colors of Garnet Reds, Taupes, Chocolate Browns and Deep Oranges.  Katie looked absolutely gorgeous as she walked down the aisle to the breathtaking gazebo by the Lake – – surrounded by a perfectly manicured golf course, the exquisite – PineIsle Pointe.  How did her bridal bouquet become such a work of art?  Well, it began with Design House of Flowers mastering the perfect choice of flowers which consisted of purple mini andraeanum anthuriumns, 3 orange pin cushion proteas, mango callas, red and orange crown celosia, mokara orchid blooms, fern shoots and calathia leaves.  The bouquet was wrapped in twine accented with rhinestone/gold adornments and peacock feathers.  Katie’s bridesmaids held smaller versions of this amazing ensemble.  After the ceremony, the happy couple celebrated at the PineIsle Pointe Pavilion where they danced the night away.  Design House created 2 amazing styles for the reception tables. Guests were treated with antique candleabras topped with florals designed with orchid blooms, cone dahlias and hanging amaranthus. Beautiful tall vases combined with more orchids, dahlias, peacock feathers, hanging crystals, and gold votives highlighted these romantic tables.  Purples, reds, oranges and intimate candle globes consumed this perfect evening. Furthermore, golden fabric drapery and twinkling lights magically covered the ceiling!  This was a photographer’s dream. The Design House staff are grateful to have been a part of this memorable wedding – – and to help make this dream come true!

Jaxon Photography  did a magnificent job with this wedding!  Thank you!
