Elizabeth & Kyle: Behind the Scenes

We worked with Elizabeth and Kyle to design a small but stunning winter wedding at the Grand Bohemian Hotel. Sometimes when we’re on a set up everything comes together so well we just can’t help ourselves but to take pictures with our fancy phones. This event had so many sweet details- we couldn’t wait to share it with you! IMG_1404-2We used neutral tones of blush, ivory, and silvery dusty miller for the floral arrangements.IMG_1405-3IMG_1406-4Two long feasting tables were assembled at the reception. Scattered soft arrangements were interspersed with ivory candles, champagne colored silk, and custom tinted metallic containers on a mirrored table runner that reflected the sparkle of the chandeliers. IMG_1407-5The Bohemian is one of our favorite indoor venues- the opulent gold accents of the room enhance any color scheme. Here we were finishing our set up by incorporating tall brass candelabras with lush floral.IMG_1408-6IMG_1410-8Out on the adjacent balcony, the ceremony was assembled with the same romantic feel.IMG_1403-1We lined the aisle on both sides with tiered floating candles.IMG_1409-7We hand painted the bride’s new monogram on their fabric runner a few days before the wedding. Our team patiently outlined each letter with matte silver paint.IMG_1412-10IMG_1411-9A few finishing touches- like taping down the edges of the runner to keep it from floating up in the December wind (and forced air heating!) and what seemed like an hour of steaming silky champagne colored linens, we were finally able to leave the event for the happy revelers.

IMG_1421-11 IMG_1423-12The next day we sent our team back for the break-down to collect and wash out containers, return linens, and gather what flowers the guests didn’t take home with them. Elizabeth and Kyle asked that their flowers be recycled into vases that they provided and donated to the hospice center in Asheville. With most events requiring hundreds of hours of consults, ideation, organizing, formulating, actual making, delivering, driving, layout, and clean up, it was wonderful to see the gorgeous blooms brighten even more people’s days than just the few hours they decorated the event.

We hope you enjoyed our behind the scenes peak! If you’d like to talk to one of our designers about your upcoming event please don’t hesitate to call us at 828-650-6464… And remember, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner…..
