The end of the year was filled with Ever After weddings! Another one coming at ya - Amanda and Chris! They actually got married in a church and had their reception back at the barn.
Amanda’s dad built their own pergola which was decorated with different style arch arrangements - what I like to call high, low. It creates a different look! The aisle was lined with just simple eucalyptus and purple stock. Don’t forget you can ALWAYS reuse your arch decor for your sweetheart table or elsewhere for the reception!
I loved her different, moody type, color scheme - deep purples and reds. We used amnesia roses, Tess garden roses, eggplant stock, wine calla lilies - mm mm MM, m o o d y.
Images caught by Romero Photoworks from Orlando! Loved all of the fun that looked like it was had with this wedding!
Looking forward to working again with Amanda in the future - as we are right now! I don’t have to just do wedding flowers for you - let’s do alllll the flower things foreverrrr!
Oldest home in Merritt Island - check. Oranges - check. Tropical - check. Gimme that Florida good-ness! I had been waiting for Cory and Brian’s November wedding for a minute since we were using all kinds of tropical, Florida elements. They had their wedding at the b-e-a-u-tiful Field Manor in Merritt Island - the town I pretty much grew up yet had never discovered this super magical hidden gem. Historic home and alllllll of the land with a view of the river? Yes please.
Incorporating the oranges was super fun for me - we used oranges for the aisle decorations and the bar area. Lemon leaf garland for the bar, sprinkled with oranges and halos. The reception was filled with vases of water with floating candles and driftwood the couple forged from diving the river! Seriously keeping it homey-vibe related. Which, if you’ve never lived on The Island - there’s 2 main streets with a small town relaxed vibe. It’s the kind of town you go into Walmart and see 3 or 4 people you know. Us Islanders are proud of our little town #bleedblackandgold (that’s the high school colors).
Cory got a big momma bouquet fully equipped with a king protea and some dendro orchids, peony, monstera leaves, seeded eucalyptus, and coral ranunculus.
We also decorated the cake table/cake that her bridesmaid made, in hanging green amaranthus, monstera leaves, spray roses, coral ranunculus and orchids!
Loved being able to do this for you Cory and Brian! Mazel tov!
Give me allll the Christmasy weddings! Ashley and Jacob tied the knot over at one of my faves - Ever After Farms Blueberry Barn in December! It may not have felt wintery at all, because well - Florida - but these pictures by Kartsie Photography are s t u n n i n g.
White and red were her main colors and some navy. We used the magical Tess garden roses for her bouquet to give a va-va-voom, paired with anemones, white stock and spray roses. Oh and of course Christmas greens - cedar and pine. So her flowers smelled really good.
Sweetheart garland too! Big beasty 10ft garland with white wax surely made a statement on their table.
All of the congratulations to you Mr. and Mrs. Spann!
Garden wedding - check. Colorful garden wedding - double check. Pups and guns?! - Triple checkkkk.
Ashley and Mike said their “I do’s” at Rockledge Gardens with a super simple and awesome wedding. She wanted super simple greenery for the centerpieces with floating candles in my 6in, 9in, and 11in cylinders - rentable!
Ashley was a super mega fan of billy balls and - fun fact - they will retain their shape for forever and a day! As long as you resist the urge to flick them or something…
My dope-tastic twin, Sweet Miss V’s, made an entirely gluten free cake for the Mr. and Mrs., while their guests were treated to an array of desserts! She can do it all folks!
Collective by Concept team captured all of these amazing photos!
More garden weddings pleaseee!
Out in the woods of Clermont - yes, Florida - lays a hily portion of woods. Tucked away in the middle of the woods is Bridalwood Ranch Gathering Place! A super cute rustic barn venue! Get hitched by a lake and then dance the night away in their barn reception space!
Haley stood out from her girls whites and greens, while her girls had burgundy and greens! Love the different contrast to stand out. She said I made all of her Pinterest dreams come true with her garlands. Large and in charge on the tables, we had to move the plates back just a smidge to make everything sit right on the table!
Jessica Jones Photography’s style is so awesome, I love it and glad to work on future projects with her again! Stay tuned folks!
I was over the moon when Arefah said her colors were involving yellow! All of the bright and beautiful things!
Over at Ever After Farms Blueberry Barn, was this September wedding. We did garland with white wax accents and garland rings around their lanterns with a yellow pin cushion. The bouquets got succulents, yellow solidago, roses, white wax and all the greens. The gentlemen all got succulents too! Garland for the pergola and for the cross! Which can always be reused for a sweetheart table or elsewhere!
All of these capture by the radiant Michelle Sarkissian, out of Orlando. SO in love with them and all of her work! Just gorgeous. She is a delight to work with <3
Wishing these two beauties a lifetime of happiness!
All the big momma succulents! Karla and Zac were the cutest couple having their wedding at Ever After Farm’s Blueberry barn in September! It’s fun to know my brides can also be crazy plant ladies because we used all the succulents and she even sent me a picture of the garland rings and garland in one of her bridesmaid’s rooms.
We used Juliet garden roses - not your normal rose! They have a cup like shape to them and aren’t what you’re thinking of an actual, in your garden, type rose - pink ranunculus, peach hypericum, hydrangea, white spray roses, and silver dollar eucalyptus. She hand painted the mason jars to give off the mint in her colors!

Here’s to hoping you don’t have to share the corvette too much Karla!
You ever start to plan a wedding then move across country and come back for wedding weekend and then fly right back out? These ladies did! So many kudos to them!
Ive known Tanya a long while now and then she messaged me about her wedding! I loved getting random messages from her to send her Alex flowers just because. She really loves that lady. Now they’re in Oregon!
They had their wedding day at Sterling Stables with the dream team Oak and Iron capturing the day. Can never go wrong with those two! A rag tag team of friendors with them, plus Mark Emr and his lady Angela’s car - a 1953 Chevy Belair - driving them to and from the venue. And Todd Reed busting out some charictures. A neat little touch to your day!
In the best Sailor Moon voice - we did our Mooooon gaaaate for ceremony - her first debut! Greenery galore with hydrangeas and roses. We did garland for the tables with vases and floating candles. Simple and clean look. Two bouquets for the lovely ladies - the same but not! White football mums, roses, spray roses, thistle, white anemones and allllll the greens. Oh and succulents too of course.
We will come pick everything up at the end of the night if needed! The last shot being all of our vases getting ready for clean up. Im sure nobody wants to tackle Serena (moongate) at the end of the night of festivites - ha!
All of the congrats dear ma’ams and I hope Oregon treats you two well!
Holy molllllyyyyyy! These pictures! These brides! This venue! Ugh. Everything is so dang pretty from this wedding in November over at The Acre in Orlando! Love the layout of this place and the weather was just perfect!
Photography by V captured everything so stunningly, I can’t handle it! She is absolute dream to work with, so make sure you check out her work! Ocean Hawks Rentals provided super dope decor rentals, with their sitting space and the massive king’s table they built! They both pay super attention to detail and we all love working together!
We did 2 bouquets for the Mrs. and Mrs. Brooke got hanging amaranthus, light pink lisianthus, burgundy cremones while April got some super gorgeous red roses and succulents. I love using alllll of the succulents for weddings! All of their bridesmaids got a succulent too that they can replant for later!
We did garland rings with a slight floral touch and OHR provided the glassware this time. We also did a big mammer jammer garland for the sweetheart table with white wax, burgundy cremones, and hanging amaranthus.
All of the congrats lovely ladies!
What fun these two were! Recommended to me by my lovely friend Lauren, owner of Infinite Memories who shot this wedding too!
Out in Orlando, the Reunion Resort is a fancy place. I found Heather who hadn’t checked out the place yet and mentioned the fancy-ness, she said, “ Well ya gotta have the best! It’s only one time!”. She was so stinking cute when she saw the ceremony area and when I brought the flowers to her later.
Loved to have been able to do both tall and short centerpieces - they really break up the space! We did cylinder vases with small cube arrangements and tall pilsner vases with arrangements on top of hydrangea, pink stock, queen anne’s lace and plenty of greens!
These two looked like they had THE best time getting down on their wedding day. They were so much fun and their bridal party was awesome, I mean, look at the pictures! Don’t you wish you were there?!
Another lovely lady from high school got hitched and I got to do her flowers! Megan and Michael got married over at Winter Park Farmer’s Market while getting ready at a neat little place down the road.
Her colors were simple - whites, greens, navy, and grey. We used white ranunculus, thistle, dusty miller, succulents, and white roses. Forever warning all of my brides to not throw their bouquets around like baseball bats when succulents are involved.
The gentlemen got succulent boutioneers also! With little thistle bouts for the smaller gentlemen.
We actually reused her bridesmaids bouquets as centerpieces! Something we could totally do for your day too! Saves on cost and guaranteed to be drinking all through the night too. Well, hopefully. Garland rings were used for the rest of the centerpieces of ruscus, leather leaf and white wax.
M.A.D. Images Inc. captured all of this beauty and is all for traveling around the state too! Make sure you check her out
These picture are just amazing and I can’t handle it! Emma Shourds Photography just did such a beautiful job and I just need to go ahead and print all of these out…
Julia happened to find me just a few months before her wedding - yeah, whoa nelly - and this lady knew what she wanted. Makes my job a lot easier! Dahlias are her favorite and one of the most delicate flowers out there, ha! I did warn her several times about these babes - and surprised her with the biggest blooms possible, as big as your head! Anemones, astible, delphinium, roses, veronica, Juliet garden roses, lisianthus, football mums, eucalyptus and ruscus throughout!
Held at Venue 1902 in Sanford, this awesome venue fit Julia and Nick’s big day perfectly, especially with their color scheme. Loved, loved, loved the different centerpiece set up also. We did a variation of tall, medium, and small and my hoops made an appearance too!
Julia made the macrame seating herself and the cake stand was also DIY! Florals everywhere on everything - including the banister. At the ceremony was a genius idea for a backdrop - a fake Christmas tree wrapped with smilax! What?! I just added the roses!
With the help of my ma and her friend, we tackled the day and what an exciting day it was, haha.
Right when they got back from their honeymoon, these two lovebirds booked it to the West Coast - all the way to California! I hope for all of the good things for you both Mr. and Mrs. Cisneros!

April showers bring May flowers! And frigid temperatures that Floridians are just not ready for…Things happen on your wedding; shoes were forgot, someone ripped their pants, mom got in a fight with his mom, weather, etc. The biggest thing to remember is each other and to just enjoy your dang self! Emily and Michael made the most of their big day when it was forecast to snow but turned out to be an annoying rainy and windy day. I heard that family members were holding the tent down and the clay barn may have given her dress a new hue - but all of their pictures show them smiling!
This lovely duo had their wedding on a family ranch in North Carolina, the first weekend in April with an unexpected rain storm that had the possibility for snow! What?! I mean, I’m sure my flowers loved the coldness! They made the best of it with their rain boots and leather jackets though.
I used Juliet Garden Roses for her bouquet and flower crown, white anemones, peach hypericum, succulents, some peony and of course eucalyptus. The wholesaler I used in North Carolina, Jegg, and had the pleasure of talking to Plain Ole’ Jeff! He was a riot. Highly recommend their selection.
Photography courtesy of the amazing Nick and Lauren Photography that also traveled up North for the wedding! They are a super fun and colorful duo. Make sure to check them out!
One of my first big traveling weddings and I loved every minute of it! So please - let’s travel!
If you could imagine the sweetest, nicest, cutest, loviest, most adorable, couple on the planet - that would Lex and Logan for me. You look at them and just can’t help but smile! And man, the way he looks at her - I hit my boyfriend asking why he doesn’t look at me like that. Muh heart - I literally can’t even.
Lex has been one of my easiest brides to work with - only for certain thing - star gazer lily. That actually may have been Logan piping up too, ha. We went with a wildflower type theme, seeing as they were getting married at FIT Botanical Gardens.
We incorporated the star gazers with light pink lisianthus, succulents, purple monte, white wax flower, ranunculus and eucalyptus.
We did some arch arrangements with all of the flowers and some curly willow to give it that extra wild flavor. You can always reuse your arch arrangements for your sweetheart table or wherever you like!
These amazing photos were provided by The Hornes. I absolutely loved the black and white photos they did and especially the last ones! Suh-woooooon!
Logan has still used me after their amazing day for just because arrangements, Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. He’s one of my best promoters out there! You got yourself an amazing man Mrs. Reedy!
I meet 98% of my couples the day of their wedding. There’s about 1.5% I actually sit down for a meeting with and then there’s the ones I can count on my hand - that I never actually met! Jessica and Bradlee would be in that category! I appreciate all of the trust lovely maam!
Held over at Rockledge Gardens Weddings, the lovely Liz (lady of the gardens), let me drop off her bouquet and his bout early, so thus the no encounter! But I got these amazing pictures back from Danielle Taufer! Orlando based but will travel!
We used super earthy tones having the wedding be at a garden venue, whites and lots of green. It may have rained but that means all the luck right? Plus it makes for some killer photos.
So Misti and Blakes first wedding, their elopement, took place in June. Their original date was a day before Hurricane Irma was supposed to hit so the weather wasn’t the greatest…so December it was!
Misti has always been a lover of my flower crowns so she had to have one, along with her daughter Astrid. Her florals consisted of succulents, ranunculus (one of her favorites), leucadendron, green hanging amaranthus, brunia, white stock, thistle, italian ruscus and eucalyptus.
They had a super cute, sweet, and simple ceremony with an Apache ritual! The reception involved a surprise salsa session for the mom and groom dance and there were all of the tacooosssss!
The wonderful duo Nick and Lauren are responsible for these bomb pictures and this was where I first met them and got to fan girl. Because look at these pictures!
We’re not allowed to grow up - Neverland kids forever. That’s how I feel when my friends start getting married at least. I’ve known Ryan since elementary school and Chelsea since high school and I was so stoked when she asked me to do the florals for their big day!
That darn Florida rain struck, but this whole crew didn’t seem to mind. Knowing the entire bridal party is always fun too because you know the pictures will all be fun.
Connoisseurs of beer, we used growlers and bottles they’ve collected over the years for the centerpieces, but keeping it neutral with the flowers in the whites, navy and green spectrum. White hydrangeas, mums, thistle, white roses, white spray roses, lisianthus, stock, and yes, eucalyptus.
The pictures turned out amazing though with that overcast sky and Tara Sproc captured all the magnificence!
These two act like the biggest kids around and he is just head over heels for her. Their relationship was a little hush hush at first and I’ll never forget driving on 520, seeing her truck going, Angela! And zooming to get closer - only to see Angela wasn’t driving…but Mark was! Oo0o0o0o scandallllll! Jk.
Her November nuptials included all the fallish tones with some thistle thrown in because its awesome. Yolo. We used burgundy cremones, white stock, red hanging amranthus, yellow solidago and some Sahara roses. Oh and eucalyptus. Angela still has her succulents going from her bouquet! We picked them out over at Florida Cactus Inc. in the heart of Central Florida. Ok the booneys, but it was a fun drive together.
They got married in their own back yard under a huge and magnificent tree. There was only a slight panic since the hurricane and storms just didn’t seem to stop and the yard managed to have a nice little pond area…that eventually soaked back up. We danced the night away to the Bee Gees, and Mark may have ended up in the pool.
I fan girled over Oak and Iron when Angela mentioned who was doing her photos. I was like wha who? And then went. Oh. Em. Gee. I happened to be at Ryan’s and saw them walk in the door and gasped. And had to introduce myself. I said, “Hey, are you guys Oak and Iron?” and their faces lit up and said “Heck Yes!” I was like, “Holy cow, I’m doing Angela’s wedding too and I just had to come over and say Hi and I love your stuff.” And then awkwardly made my way out. Insert awkward turtle hands. But ever since working with them on Angela’s wedding, we’ve created an awesome friendor relationship…more to come on that.
But check out all the rad cars, rad photos, and rad people in these gems.
This love has been a long time in the making! I’ve known Aimee since high school, we were in art class together and I am forever hollering at her to put her artwork into shows! Now it’s on the interwebs Aimee - you have to.
Way, way out in the middle of Florida is Skyline Ranch. It’s so quiet out here, you wouldn’t think you were in Florida! And it’s so stinking pretty - I mean look at the scenery!
We kept it very simple, as Aimee is very simple and not a girly girl by any means. Whites and greens were the name of the game, so white stock, ranunculus, roses and allll the eucalyptus. The dog of honor, Avery, even got her own floral collar! Please include your pups in your big day and let me make them collars.
We actually didn’t do anything for the guys because Aimee and TJ are avid duck hunters, so they used duck feathers! Love when nontraditional elements are brought in!
Lisa Marshall was the perfect fit for this wedding with her style being so crisp and clean. Her work is always amazing!
So let’s do all the greens, all the dogs, and all the far away Florida places. Ok? Ok cool.
One thing about this wedding every knew - it’s going to be a freaking party! It was all anyone involved could talk about and we couldn’t wait to kick up heels as guests after setting up!
I’ve known Sam since high school and then Veronica came into her life and she was all Sam could talk about. First comes love, then comes a bar, then comes lady owned empires! These rad babes own The Salty Fox in Downtown Eau Gallie. If you haven’t been, ya need to. Try the candied jalapenos - they’re my fav.
These two were so funny in deciding flowers. Veronica wanted tall centerpieces, Sam wanted low ones. That’s why I love weddings - the possibilities are endless! So we all compromised and did both! White, navy and a hint of coral were the colors so we went with thistle, astible, ranunculus, spray roses, succulents, and anemones.
Once again, Oak and Iron dominating these photos! We all got to sit together and experience the vendor world but it was a long weekend of weddings for me. I flew in from North Carolina the day before from Emily and Michael!
First time at Up the Creek and man is it a beaut. Plus, there were dogs. Okay, setting up the pups were around. But then come party time, they were tucked away. The property is huge and has a great big area for photo ops.
Make sure to check out their foxy place - brews, foods, pups and dancing. What else could you want?
Another friend’s wedding - hooray! I’ve known Ali since high school, so naturally I told her I was doing her flowers, she didn’t really have a choice. She was to be my guinea pig for my CRM software that I use for all of my brides now!
I’ll be honest - and I was honest with her - anemones are not my favorite flower. Why? They are SO tempermental! BUT, man oh man, did these babes come in beautiful. It’s like they knew they had to shut me up and they did.
We used blue anemones, yes blue, the flower world is weird, white anemones, statice, roses, stock, caspia and all of the greens!
She actually trained herself to do all of the calligraphy from the invitations to the table numbers! And she is also my first bride where I can showcase - the garland rings! Insert Xena chakrum noises here. I was so excited with how they came out. My boyfriend actually helped on this one a lot too with the greenery backdrop wall we did. She is the first one to use that too! She sure was a guinea pig for a lot of things now that I think about it…
Held at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market and shot by the amazingly magical Shannon Miller , these photos are just bomb. It was a fun night, with a choreographed first dance that wow’d everyone and there may or may not have been an incident with smoke bombs and Ali’s reception dress…all of the shenanigans were had!
This sweet bride found me through her friend all the way up in Jacksonville! Cristina & Bernie were so awesome to work with being almost all of our communication was through email. Lovely Hurricane Irma was not happy she was not invited so of course she tried to reek havok on the family friend’s home they had their reception at. But Mother Nature prevailed!
The containers I used for her centerpieces were ones she actually found and they were so neat - they were wood but carved into a bowl and sat on these stands. They were super cool. She wanted all the greens so that’s what we used! Small garlands of eucalyptus, leather leaf and italian ruscus. Some white and peach roses, white sprays, for some of the other florals. To get the containers, they actually drove down to for their Grandma’s birthday in Miami and met me with the CUTEST gift basket, that I thoroughly enjoyed snacking on. So awesome of them, totally unexpected <3
I stayed with a lovely friend of mine who is learning ASL, which Jacksonville has a large deaf community. I have slowly been teaching myself how to sign, with her help through Snap Chat! But yes please to more Jax weddings!
Photography of this delightful duo by Kristie Horton Photography.
It’s Florida but this was my FIRST tropical wedding! And I loved making allllll of this tropical goodness. Samantha actually sent me photos from a styled shoot with this bouquet saying she wanted EXACTLY that - you got it ma’am!
This October wedding was held at a private residence but man is it gorgeous! I actually met Derek at the parking lot of BJ’s because I was going out of town the next day and they were coming back into town for the night but he beat Samantha to BJ’s. It was like a flower drug deal - without any drugs of course. I told him he was held responsible from that moment forward and whatever happened to the flowers from that point on - was on him, ha.
This tropical magic is made up of orange asiatic lilies, Pink Floyd roses (they blow open to half the size of your face!) yellow pin cusions, apricot ranunculus, peach hypericum, some robilini and verigated pitt!
These pictures by Casie Marie Photography are freaking stunning. Insert heart eyes here. I follow her work on Instagram and it’s just amazing! Plus her pup is pretty cute too.
I think she may be my only bride I didn’t actually get to meet, since her bo beat her to the meeting spot and I sure hope we can link up again! Also - those bridesmaids dresses! That color! Ugh, love. Especially the Maid of Honor! What even! So magical.
More tropical vibes please!
All of the friend’s weddings!
I’ve known Morgan since elementary school! We actually used to ride the bus together to school! We both share a passion for the softball field and her love is actually an umpire! She came to the tattoo studio and got work done and then asked me to take care of her big day!
I loved her color pallete with the greens and whites. Mini green hydrangeas are the cutest, paired up with some white roses, green leucadendron, green hypericum, eucalyptus, and some white wax flower.
The venue was the adorable Birdsong Barn, tucked away in Titusville - which fit perfect with the bridal party’s shoes - cowboy boots!
Pattillo Portraiture with the amazing photos and I just love when the bridal party is fun and it gets capture. It’s all a giant party y’all - celebrate!
I’ve known this sweet momma since high school and was super excited to do a crown for her early morning maternity shoot! The amazing Violet Joy Photography captured these gems and just a few days later, little Miss Bailey made her debut!
All about the flower crown life - so let’s do ittt!
ALL OF THE CHUNKY GOODNESS! Insert heart eyes here.
This teeny precious babe sports a flower crown like the best of them! The tiniest one I’ve made to date - but let’s do more!
Magnolia Bee Photography approached me with this and how could I say no to those cheeks! Ugh. So in love with these - more milk sessions please!
This wedding was my very FIRST wedding at Ever After back in June! Lots of lessons have been learned since - haha. Mandy, Christy, and Zoey are all like gal pals now when I see them there. Awesome group of ladies - not to mention the lady of the barn Monica and Miss Jenny with her little Daisy and there’s Ali too! So glad to be with the Ever After family.
We did some wild type bouquets filled with different types of eucalyptus, wine ranunculus, Mother of Pearl roses, white spray roses, white wax - all the fun things!
For the ceremony, her dad built a large cross we hung a garland from and did garland for the reception! Simple, wild vibe. Im about it.
Kebenae Photography with all of these photos!
Congratulations again Chloe and Ryan!
