Sarah & John were married at High Hampton Inn in Cashiers, North Carolina. From the second I met Sarah, I just knew I was going to love working with her. The happy couple exchanged their vows Mother’s Day weekend, surrounded by friends and family, in an outdoor ceremony on the front lawn of the mountain resort. The ceremony overlooked the lake and a breathtaking mountain backdrop. The reception was held in the clubhouse overlooking the golf course. The day was perfect.
Sarah gave me a fair amount of creative freedom within her color scheme of coral, white, green, with accents of cantaloupe and lemon. In order to coordinate with the bridesmaid’s coral dresses and the groomsmen’s seersucker suits and bow ties, I used coral peonies, David Austin Juliet garden roses, raspberry ranunculus, scabiosa flowers, fluffy white roses, berries, white peonies, and yellow parrot tulips (just to name a few)! To finish off the bridal bouquet, I wrapped the bouquet stems in lush ribbons hand-selected for Sarah in New York City, and added a cascading satin & velvet ribbon treatment.
I also fell in love with the centerpieces Sarah selected for the reception. Each table had a lush arrangement in a gold footed vases featuring peonies, roses, ranunculus, queen anne’s lace, tulips, feverfew, mixed greenery, and finished with blooming honeysuckle vine, and clematis vine, surrounded by candles. Sarah also requested an arrangement in memory of the groom’s mother incorporating peppermint carnations which were her favorite flower. It was such a sweet gesture to honor the memory of John’s mother. Sarah’s thoughtfulness of the guests was reflected throughout the day.
