Bella Collina – Tuscan Elegance

Daniel and Jessica’s day could not have been more perfect. On a sunny Saturday in April, Montverde provided a stunning backdrop on a day this couple will never forget. The wedding was filled with deep, jewel-toned blooms ranging from an extensive arch piece to their reception centerpieces. We loved the bride’s adventurous side that allowed us to add some lesser seen product, such as the gorgeous red Amaranthus, Celosia as well as use one of our favorite flowers – Peonies! This elegant wedding matched the venue’s “Spirit of Tuscany” perfectly and combined to create one of the most gorgeous events. We are so glad we got to be a part of their day!

Capen House- Photo Perfect!

We had an absolute blast working with Damon Tucci Photography, Michele Butler, and Bridal Collection on this fun photo shoot! The Capen house was a beautiful backdrop for our light and airy bouquets and arrangements! The dresses from the Bridal collection were simply stunning. Damon Tucci Photography did an amazing job capturing the charm of the venue, dress, and floral.  It was so much fun working with everyone!

Luxmore Grande Estate- Jewel Toned Romance

Katie and Austin’s was nothing but a show stopper at the Luxmore Grande Estate 2/4/17. We simply adored being a part of this loving couples special day. The contrasting shades of white and red hues made an unforgettable vision their guests will not soon forget. We loved working with all the different textures of greenery, succulents, cabbage, twine, wood, and sleek metal. Her bouquet was designed with contrasting colors to make the jewel toned floral pop! We created enchanting centerpieces with hanging globes on a whimsical tree. It was a gorgeous day filled with a ton of love.  We were just tickled to be working with these amazing vendors! Can’t wait till our next Luxmore Grande Estate wedding!

Leu Gardens – Irish Wedding

We really enjoyed designing this romantic, almost all green wedding with a touch of white and thistles. This stunning bride with the most gorgeous red hair wore a romantic lace gown with a stunning shawl draped over her arms as she walked down the aisle. Her maids wore a soft teal and a gray shawl draped with green and white bouquets. The bride carried a soft cascading bouquet with queens ann lace, brunia, thistles, green hydrangea, garden roses and amaranthus. The ceremony was moved inside for weather, but we moved their birchwood ceremony arch inside with corner floral of white hydrangea, ivy, thistle and amaranthus. The couple had a bagpiper in honor of their heritage to start and end the ceremony.

Mission Inn – Networking Lunch

We were honored when asked to design floral arrangements for a recent networking lunch at one of our favorite venues, Mission Inn. We were able to set the mood for the social affair with fun and unique tropical designs using simple arrangements of hydrangea and greens in golden caraway vases. Golden pineapples and ivy draped on the chandeliers brightened up the room and added a brilliant final touch to bring the tropical feel together!

Cypress Grove~Chic and Classic

We were just tickled to work with one of our favorite Tickled Pink ladies, Michelle Moyer, on her most special day. Cypress Grove created a beautiful backdrop for her gorgeous wedding. We had fun using some of Bluegrass Chic favorite flowers such as the panda anemone, sweet fragrant Juliet garden rose, berries, and succulents of course! This whimsical bouquet was filled with many of the ivory and peachy/blush elements to create a timeless image. The reception and tables where some of our favorite. There where a mixture of wood slices, garland, and bud vases that gave a very chic and romantic feel. What an an amazing day with an fantastic team!

Rabbit Hollow – Elopement

 

We just had to share these photos from an elopement at Rabbit Hollow where we provided the floral. The stunning professional photos and styling by Kathy Thomas Photography. Stop for a minute and enjoy the sparkle and smell the roses. Audrey’s bouquet and centerpieces consisted of hot pink roses and peonies, coral roses and white ranunculus.

Mission Inn Marina – Babies Breath Beauties

We loved the elegance and simplicity of Stephanie and Brian’s wedding!  They held their special day at the Mission Inn Marina Del Rey.

We designed Stephanie’s lovely bridal bouquet with babies breath and blush & white gerber daisies.  We designed her maids’ bouquets with babies breath and white gerber daisies.  For their ceremony, we designed babies breath inside her hanging lantern jars with streaming ribbons.  For their reception, we scattered babies breath around candlelight centerpieces for half of their guest tables, and then placed babies breath lantern jars for the other half.

We hope you enjoy these photos just as much as we did!

Good Counsel Camp – Rustic Outdoor Wedding

We wanted to write about the floral, but then we contacted the bride to get the story of her wedding told in her words. From our Bride, Kayla.

My husband, Stephen, and I met when we were 14 years old at a little outdoor summer camp in Floral City, Florida called Good Counsel Camp (GCC). We met as campers and our love for that place and each other grew as we continued to go summer after summer. When we were too old to be campers, we became staff and worked as counselors until we graduated from college.

After 8 years of dating and a big move from Florida to New York City, Stephen proposed at Central Park on 12/13/14. We both knew right away where we wanted to get married. GCC was our favorite place in the world and we couldn’t imagine a “best day ever” without that place.

Unfortunately, earlier that year, a fire burned down the center of and the biggest structure on GCC’s property- the Mess Hall. Without even a foundation of a new Mess Hall (aka the reception location), we agreed that we would get married there the next year. Through the generosity of other alumni and supporters who loved the camp as much as we did, it was rebuilt by the following summer… this time with AC and bathrooms (imagine a wedding without that!).

For our wedding, multiple friends, family members and vendors helped transform our little camp (not typically a venue) into an even more breathtaking place. There is nothing that will ever compare to walking down the “aisle” into the GCC chapel, a walk I had taken daily in summers past- this time ending with all my loved ones from different parts of my life under one roof. Stephen and I enjoyed every second of our ceremony and reception and feel so grateful to GCC for bringing us together.

Summer Wedding Expos-2016

The Bluegrass Chic ladies have been hard at work to meet the new brides of summer 2016! The first wedding expo we did this summer was the PWG wedding expo at The Hilton Orlando on May 1st. We chose to do a beach theme for our booth. For our tablescape we used large pieces of drift wood and covered it with floral! We used white hydrangea, white football mums, white tibet roses, white stock, and dusty miller. We furthered our look with starfish, seashells, sea glass, and candles. We were also chosen to provide a beautiful array of bridal bouquets for PWG’s runway show and floral for their VIP room. For the VIP room, we played with an Earth and fire theme creating our look with all kinds of greens and red, yellow, and orange floral and textures.

On August 21st, at the Wedding Expo also at The Hilton Orlando, our team created a rustic and romantic french market experience. Our large wood doors were a show stopper as new couples walked the expo. To further this look, we used wine crates, rustic lanterns, a birdcage, and some of our gorgeous rental signs on one side of our booth. On the other side we had three tiers of flower buckets for our brides to take home with them! The flowers did not stop there, we created a bridal bouquet, halo, and chair sashes of beautiful red freedom roses, white tibet roses, ester roses, brown agnus, red ranunculus, and lots of greens. For our tablescape, we designed a garland for the center of the table with a romantic centerpiece surrounded by twinkly candles.

Thank you PWG and The Wedding Expo for allowing us to meet the new brides of 2016!
