Kelli + Art at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort

28 Jul

How do we describe this beautiful wedding?  Peach..Pink..Green..Orange..Cherry Blossoms..Flowing Ivy..Elegant!

Kelli + Art were married at the Chateau Elan Atrium with their reception in the Winery Pavillon.

Kelli’s bridal bouquet was a full, textured, elegant bouquet designed with white hydrangeas, peachy orange roses, peach stock, pink spray roses, light orange ranunculus,  peach dahlias, pink tulips,  greenish gray succulents, light pink sweet pea and pink astilbe with a touch of seeded eucalyptus partially wrapped in ivory ribbon adorned with crystal pins.  Now that’s a description!

Kelli provided a wooden cross for the ceremony which we added a floral spray to the center to follow the cross. The spray was designed with white hydrangeas, peachy orange roses, peach stock, pink spray roses, light orange ranunculus, peach dahlias, light pink sweet pea and pink astilbe with flowing seeded eucalyptus and ivy.

At the corners of the ceremony stage we designed arrangements of white hydrangeas with white cherry blossom branches.  A crown of seeded eucalyptus was added with hanging ivy in tall cylinder vases. Breathtaking~

The reception in the Winery Pavillon was also filled with peach, pink and orange floral center piece arrangements with some additional rustic lanterns and our Design House amazing draping.

A Night with Friends

3 Jun

What an amazing tribute to Lena’s mom, “Muriel.”   Lena invited many close friends of the family to this Surprise Soiree.  The evening was filled with laughter, tears, great food, music, dancing, games, speeches, and more laughter! What a Night to Remember!

This classy celebration was held at a private home in Suwanee, Georgia. We designed elegant floral arrangements of calla lilies, hydrangeas, and roses. Bookcases, the mantle, stair bannister, and entry table decor had touches of gold and silver with gorgeous lit votives, and hydrangeas, & calla lily ensembles.  Of course, the Estate Guest table stood out beautifully with a flower bed down the center of table with a gold table runner, gold candelabras, and matching floral designs.  Sophisticated Soiree Indeed!

The delicious appetizers and sit down delectable dinner was catered by Lu Lu West of Lu’s Events and Weddings.  Check out her amazing menu below.

Sophia + Scott at Lake Lanier Islands Resort

22 Aug

The stunning Sophia loves Callas, Hydrangeas, and Peonies!  Look at this gorgeous bouquet!  The happy couple held their ceremony at the Monarch Tower with a fabulous reception at the Pineisle Center Ballroom at Lake Lanier Islands Resort.  We also loved designing the curtain style drapery with matching floral clusters on each side. Thick layers of ivory petals accented the center aisle.

Elegant and so very romantic, the Design House staff created tall elegant centerpieces with ivory hydrangeas, orchids, mini callas and champagne roses for the reception guest tables.

Thank you to Korede Akinbami for these lovely photos.

Dionne + Orlando at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort

22 Apr

Dionne and Orlando are the perfect couple.  They asked and we delivered Elegance at Chateau Elan Winery and Resort! This was an easy order as this fabulous wedding party  was stunning. The bridesmaids wore long black gowns and there were Turquoise accents in their white hydrangea bouquets.  Design House of Flowers designed Dionne’s bouquet with white hydrangeas, white polo roses, white mini calla lilies, white tulips, white freesia & lisianthus, white orchids, with each flower embellished with turquoise or silver rhinestones. The bouquet was wrapped in white satin ribbon with turquoise ribbon accents and rhinestones.  Extremely breathtaking!   The soft lit white back drop altar was equally breathtaking as 2 large Manzaniti trees with hanging crystals were on stage surrounded by many candles. Of course, the reception decor was an absolute thrill for the Design House staff.  Flowing ceiling drapery with twinkling lights and hanging chandelier – – is one of our specialties. Guest tables were lined with turquoise satin accents and tall elegant arrangements. We love to design and We love to create magical wedding memories for our couples!

Enjoy these amazing pictures by Gene Ho Photography.

Congratulations Dionne and Orlando!
