Throwing back to a fun project with some of our favorite local vendors, Caty created a 20’s inspired wedding at the newly renovated Georgian Ballroom here in Athens, Georgia. Inspired by the architecture and lines of the space, Caty brought in textiles and details to really bring her vision to life. We love the darker tones and lush blooms, paired with this romantic gown and classic tux, and the pops of color are exactly what we are tuned into lately especially!
Gardenia Floral Design adorned the altar space perfectly with seasonal greenery, and we just love how it all tied in together! Elijana took Caty’s inspiration of the era and gave our sweet bride the perfect wave bob without being overdone.

Often times people ask how they can save on flowers, especially for smaller budget or non-wedding events. If you're like us, you appreciate all of the beautiful colors and textures that nature reminds us of during the fall. To quote Whitney and Christy, "look no further than the curb, or your own backyard for colorful leaves, natural greenery, and seasonal flowers for a foraged centerpiece.”
Here are the steps for creating this dynamic piece!
Step 1: Select a vessel – we went with the Irving Glass Vase. The hand forged iron legs give height to the arrangement, while the found greenery gives it bulk. The height, unique shape and bulk give the piece presence, which creates humble warmth.
Step 2: Start the arrangement with greenery – in this case, the ladies used magnolia and seasonal leaves. If you are lacking access to fresh cut greenery, use faux greenery like our Live Preserved Oak Leaves.
Step 3: Add florals – bring color and symmetry to the centerpiece by sticking to two colors. Christy pulled her floral inspiration from the colors of the beautiful umbers and rusts of the florals. A similar feel could be accomplished using our Autumnal Mum Bundle.
