Sneak Peek: Meredith & Drew at The Hotel Palomar

I only have a few, but here's a sneak look at some of the reception pieces from Meredith & Drew at The Hotel Palomar. They were married at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception downtown.

There were three different sizes of centerpieces. Full and lush mass arrangements of hydrangeas in shades of blues and purples. Each table was named after a flower.

The second size was a criss-cross design of mini and standard callas rising up from the lush hydrangeas.

And the third design was a column of callas. Meredith is an architect and was very clear that she wanted clean lines in her designs.

The boutique hotel is near the Georgia Tech campus and allows pets. In the lobby is a large fish tank with brightly colored fish. And yes, I saw a beautiful brown australian shepherd sitting perfectly still and staring at that fish tank, licking his chops.


Virginia + Robin, bouquets and bouts and more!

Love the fresh mint in the bridal bouquet.

Little milk glass urn filled with mint. This precious thing was placed on the sweetheart table which was hidden inside the house so Virginia and Robin could steal a few moments together during the celebration.

I love compotes!

The sign in 'book' was a poster of a tree with bare branches. Guests added their green thumbprint to the branches and signed their names. Another etsy creation.
I really could go on for days with this wedding, but I'll stop. I took about 100 photos! Most of the above photos courtesy of the professional - Addison Hill Photography.

Virginia + Robin, details...

Giant mason jar buffet arrangement. Virginia was quite excited about this ebay find.

Gorgeous hydrangeas, lilacs, stock, bells of ireland, and mint. It was hard letting this one go - I wanted to keep it for me!

The ceremony took place under a tent and in front of the glass doors to the reception area. Two of these fabulously lush wreaths hung on the doors.

And check out the sweet, sweet etsy cake topper.

Virginia + Robin. Happily ever after.

Yahoo! I finally have a chance to blog!

I surprisingly do not have any events/weddings this weekend so I don't know what to do with myself! Actually that's not true - there is a 'to do' list a mile long, and one item is to finally put up on the blog what has been keeping bloom floral design so busy!

Virginia and Robin, both Auburn graduates and hailing from Birmingham, were married at the Pace House in Vinings on May 1st. It was your classic southern wedding - hydrangeas, mason jars, seersucker suits, a rockin' band (somehow connected to Bob Dylan - The Last Waltz was their name, I think?) and the first humid Saturday of the year.

I had a fantastic time collecting milk glass vases to use for the reception centerpieces. Here's a few shots of the collections.

Love the shoe and the vase on the left!

The white and green color palette was perfect for the Vinings humidity. Virginia was very laid back about her flowers and consequently everything came together beautifully. White hydrangeas, snowball mums, bouvardia, vendela' roses, tulips, stock, white lilac, kalanchoe, 'super green' roses, bells of ireland, kermit poms, hypericum berries and glorious amounts of mint.
It was absolute heaven incorporating the mint (and appropriately - it was Derby Day!).
Next post - bouquets/boutonnieres and more details - such as their cool sign-in poster and the sweet etsy cake topper.
