Angela & George at Cator Woolford

First things first, though - tonite is the last night of the April Jazz Nights in Oakhurst of which bloom is a proud sponsor. A comfy green lawn tucked amongst a vibrant neighborhood village, a nice glass of wine and open-air jazz. I'd say that's a perfect plan for this evening! Be there or be square!

I, of course, will be square as I have a charity gala along with a good ol' seersucker suit wedding this weekend. Have a glass for me, will ya?

Now - Angela and George had picked Cator Woolford Gardens for their wedding last weekend. Unfortunately we had a bit of a monsoon but no worries - the ceremony was moved under the tent and the reception remained up the hill at The Atrium. Here's a few pix of the pretties for Angela's day -

Girls bouquets (8!) were mexican sun ranunculus, billy balls (aka craspedia) and brunia.

Wrapped with a lovely "cancun blue" ribbon!

Flower girl pomander. Yellow button mums work so well!

Tiny flower pomander for the two-year old along with Angela's bouquet. Hers included snow white ranunculus.

Sweet mother corsages. A tiny 'star of bethlehem' tucked in.

Rose petals lined the aisle with a few full open roses nestled in. I like the way it looks - a little surprise along the way....

Cake topper. Cake was designed by Michelle's Elegant Cakes.

The Atrium has a fantastic wall mosaic that you can see behind the cake.
Despite the rain, Angela and George were married. And that was the whole point, right?


Carrie + Dan at Emory's Little Chapel and The Carlos Museum

It was truly a pleasure working with Carrie! She and Dan married at Emory's Little Chapel with a reception at The Michael C. Carlos Museum (on the Emory campus). Her request was for soft blush tones and a very romantic and textural look for her bridal party flowers.

Her bouquet was a mix of white and pink peonies, seeded eucalyptus, stock, viburnum, ranunculus, peach roses, lilac, scabiosa, spirea, and lavender.

Corsages for the mothers and grandmothers - Carrie had accents of gold throughout her wedding day so I used a gold-edged ivory ribbon for the pin-ons. (photo taken with iphone - apologies!).

Her gorgeous rosette cake was done by The Flour Shoppe.

Obviously the groom was a graduate of Georgia Tech!

Placecards were printed on gold metallic with architectual design detail.

This was the sign in poster - very vintage and sweet - it may have been an etsy, not sure.

Tablecenters were similar to the bridal party except in bolder hues. Linens were a soft peach and each table was named for a destination which Carrie and Dan had traveled together. Tablecenter flowers were hanging amaranthus, scented geranium, ranunculus, peonies, wax flower, lilac, peach roses, lavender tulips, hydrangea, scabiosa, lavender, viburnum and stock. Their scent was divine!

Again, another iphone photo - sorry! I was tweeting from the set-up!

Inside the peony - that would be an awesome shot to have blown up really large for a wall piece!
(If I do say so myself.)

Lavender scabiosa and peach rose.

Gorgeous day + Easy bride + Lush flowers = Perfect wedding!

Thanks again Carrie - you were a gem!
Now it's on to Ashley, Jackie and Angela this weekend. Ashley at the Decatur Courthouse tonite!

Apple Blossoms

Whoa! I didn't realize how long it has been since my last post! I think Spring Break last week had something to do with that.

It has been a very polleny past few days but seeing all the blooms bursting forth makes it all worthwhile (and thankfully I'm not allergic!). Here's a few of the 5,000 photos I took of some blossomingly abundant apple trees while in N. Georgia for the break.

I wish these were in my backyard. So serene when the petals fall floatily to the ground.
