Succulents & Found Objects at Architectural Artifacts

Amy and Seth had their wedding ceremony on the patio of Architectural Artifacts with a reception inside to follow. Their colors were navy and kelly green with ivory. Flowers including helleborus, ranunculus, lisianthus, thistle, hydrangea, spray roses, cockscomb, hypericum berries, brunia, and lots of succulents.

Amy and I go WAY back–we grew up just down from the street from each other and her mom still actually still lives in our old neighborhood! We reconnected on Facebook and Tiffany and I met up with her several months ago to possibly do her wedding. Since she is an interior designer and therefore into ambiance and texture and trend, she wanted succulents (LOVE) and picked Architectural Artifacts to be the stage for the event.

For Amy’s bouquet–she had an inspiration photo that I think we surpassed and then some. Her bouquet literally is my favorite bouquet I have ever made (even surpassing my own!) It featured helleborus, ranunculus, succulents, spray roses, lisianthus, and brunia and had its handle wrapped in satin with a raffia overlay and button detail. The bridesmaids also had awesome bouquets of all green including cockscomb, hydrangea, hypericum berries, brunia, and seeded euch, with some blue thistle accents and navy wrapped handles. The flower girls got succulent headbands with button details and the moms got corsages with ranunculus, spray roses, brunia and thistle. The other bouts and corsages were made of spray roses, brunia and/or succulents. I loved the succulent bouts and I loved how we left the stems showing at the bottom.

For the ceremony, Tiffany put down an aisle runner and moved plants that Amy’s mom provided into their locations near the altar. She also put out Amy’s pillar candles in hurricanes that lined the aisle and some reserved signs we made for the first couple rows.

For the reception, Tiffany put out Amy’s drift wood pieces on top of table squares and added moss and succulents to them. The venue then added artifacts around them to finish the look. We also provided a variety of vases for the dessert table for cookies and other items and we also made a bunch of cute signs for this area as well.

I cannot wait to see the pro photos of this wedding! I am sure Gina&Tony took some awesome ones!

I loved working with Amy and reconnecting with her in the process. She looked so gorgeous and I know her and Seth will be so happy together!

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Smole!

PS, Amy’s wedding was like a mini WTHS Reunion when I went back to pick up vases at the end of the night. It was great seeing her lovely bridesmaids (who were all my ex-classmates) Liz, Katie, Amber, and Erin…everyone looked beautiful!!!
