The instant I met Christine and her mom, Mary, I knew our floral-planning journey would be a sweet one. They met me with an abundance of kindness, excitement, and ideas that were beyond beautiful. Originally, Christine and Jonathan were to be married at one of my favorite venues: Montaluce Winery in Dahlonega. We had planned out stunning designs to fit that large space complete with a dramatic mantle design, tall arrangements, and a unique floral installation on the ceremony tree in the vineyard. A few months after we met, Covid hit. We didn’t make any initial changes, but eventually they decided to move the wedding to their beautiful home north of Atlanta. They needed to downsize their guest count, and we needed to go back to the drawing board in terms of the designs. I met them at their home and we walked through the space, making decisions, and dreaming new designs that suited their home. Together, we planned a stunning design for their new location. It turned out to be one of the prettiest wedding days we’ve been a part of, and looking at these photos you’d never know that this location was their second choice.
This family was so kind, and treated our team so well. They welcomed us into their home without any hesitation, as if we were family. That kindness means a lot to me and I’ll never forget that.

For Christine, we chose a romantic and autumnal color palette including deep burgundy, peach, blush, tan, gold, and dark green. Flowers were sourced from my favorite local wholesaler Cutflower, a local farm On the Hill Flower Farm, and Grace Rose Farm in California.
The flowers featured for this wedding include dahlias, butterfly ranunculus, Grace Rose garden roses (Distant Drum, Evelyn, and Stephen Rulu), rice flower, scabiosa, ranunculus, lisianthus, hellebore, dianthus, jasmine vine, and blue eucalyptus.
