Destination Wedding: Celeste & Sidney I Detroit/Miami Event & Floral Design

Today calls for a throw back…..  It is Thursday after all!  And this one is a good one.  A realllllly good one.  Celeste & Sidney, oh where oh where do we begin.  Well, for starters, we begin with the fact that this is the most beautiful and wonderful family- inside and out.  Just the most generous and fantastic people we’ve maybe ever had the pleasure of working with.  Celeste and Sidney invited us along for their destination wedding at the Palms Hotel in Miami, Florida.  To say that we were excited, might be an understatement.  The Palms Hotel was stunning and perfectly appointed with everything a destination wedding requires.  This hotel and venue doesn’t miss a beat, they are spot on with every single detail.  Of course, our sister company, A Moment In Time Wedding & Event Production coordinated the big day and the days leading up, and it was a seamless and perfect day.   Just perfection in every way.

We, of course, created the floral in the Miami branch of our floral wholesaler, all while Preston Bailey was also working in the same space.  Yes, you read that correctly- PRESTON BAILEY.  So, not only did we get to work with a beautiful couple, their fantastic family, at a stunningly perfect venue, while being guests in the hotel- we also got a chance to view one of the most successful wedding florists work, up close and personal.  This, is what they call “serendipity” and it was all we could do to contain ourselves.  If you can picture us doing a little dance, a “can-can” (to be exact), while fireworks are going off in the background and champagne bottles are popping- well, that’s a fraction of the excitement that was brewing under what we hope appeared to be a calm demeanor.

You’ll notice, we have posted quite a few photos of the couple rather than of our work.  We can’t help it.  Our floral was pretty, but this couple trumps anything we could have created with floral or otherwise. They are show stoppers!  So gorgeous.  Enjoy their beauty and the Miami scenery in all it’s glory……and a few photos of our work thrown in for good measure!   Thank you to Maggie Stolzberg Photography for being so amazing to work with and for providing us the opportunity to download photos to our hearts content!  You my dear are a true talent!  I can see why folks fly you all over the world to capture their important moments.  Such stunning work. Swooning still, 6 months later……. ahhhhhh…….

Just Married: Hayley & Jake I Detroit Floral & Event Design

Hayley & Jake are what we would categorize as DREAM clients.  Sincerely.  Just the most perfect clients to work with- and bonus- their love for each other was positively contagious!  And it’s never a bad gig when you feel good being around a couple you’re working with. They always told us how happy WE made them feel when they came into the office, but I’m pretty sure it was the other way around.  From Jake’s beaming smile to Hayley’s gorgeous glow, we just couldn’t get enough. Their personal style, while more edgy and uptrend- they actually surprised us at our first design consult and opted for a more classic and traditional wedding with light, lush floral and simple but gorgeous linens, provided by Luxe Linen of course!  It was all just perfection all neatly packaged in a ballroom at the Royal Park Hotel.  Twas’ a stunner, that’s for sure!

The “Lillian Wild Peonies were GIANT this year and the “Sarah Bernhardt” were the perfect shade of pink. And oh how we adore Peonies.  It’s a true love affair.  We also hand dipped over 250 terracotta pots and transformed them to glittery little vessels for the cutest miniature succulents, which the guests took home as favors.  The custom “thank you” tags were the perfect accessory.  It’s all in the details people! ;)

Of course, while the floral and overall design was more classic, and a traditional with a teeny tiny modern twist- they couldn’t and wouldn’t settle for a traditional or classic photographer.  They went for the most unique guy around, someone featured in our last post actually!  Jeffrey with JLB Wedding is a favorite of ours, and once again, it’s pretty obvious as to why when you take a look at these incredible photos.  He captured this gorgeous couple with his typical perfection and artistry.  SWOON.

Congrats to Hayley & Jake!
