Ellie + Justin’s Wedding Day

May 25, 2021

As many couples experienced last year, Ellie and Justin had to postpone their May wedding to later in the year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. After many hurtles in the planning process they were able to come together to finally celebrate their love with their closets friends and family in August of last year. Originally the wedding was going to be a burst of spring florals in shades of lavender, pink, and white. My challenge was to make the design still look like Spring which I achieved with additions like lisianthus, stock, orlaya and jasmine vine. I wanted to keep the bouquet natural looking yet romantic and feminine. I always want the flowers to look like they are dancing whenever someone is holding the bouquet walking down the aisle. In this case the lisianthus and the clematis did just that and it was breathtaking. Another challenge I faced was incorporating babies breath or gypsophila while still making it look modern and romantic. The best example of this is on the chuppah where we created groupings of the gypsophila but kept it loose and natural looking so it did not create any specific shape. We added in roses in lavender, pink, and white to bring more focus into the design with their larger heads and the base of the design features sweeping smilax vines for a whimsical touch. Check out the more photos in the gallery below of their special day which was captured beautifully by Lauren Lee Photography!
