Kristin & Mark: The Flowers Featured Wedding: Kristin & Mark

"Kristin and her mom came to the florist more than a year before her October 8, 2011 wedding to let me begin planning her flowers. However, really the plans were all hers!! Kristin knew colors and flowers and centerpieces and every detail she wanted and it was certainly our pleasure to procure, design and deliver wonderful bouquets.

Kristin's matron of honor and bridesmaids carried large bouquets handtied in champagne ribbon with Vermeer and BlackStar calla lilies that are white with an eggplant center and solid eggplant color. To complement the lilies were lavender roses, white mums and cream hypericum berries.

At the church, we covered a large "K" and "M" in moss to hang with white satin from the inside church doors.

For the church pews, we covered oasis wreaths in moss, white spray roses, hydrangea and baby's breath and attached them with white satin ribbon.

For the church altar, Kristin and Mark brought to the florist a huge birdcage for us to fill with candlesticks, candles and flowers. Lining the bottom of the cage with oasis and opening the doors of the cage, we were able to fill the bottom with flowers and they spilled out from the front and sides. Roses, hydrangea, lilies, mums, stock, grass, seeded eucalyptus, Italian ruscus and hypericum berries gave a lush, garden focal point in the church.

At the Clarksville Country Club for the reception, Kristin carried the "love birds" theme into her table designs. Bringing to the florist 47 birdcages in a variety of sizes, she wanted those filled with candles and flowers also. We began weeks before the wedding by lining the bottoms of the cages with moss and placing inside more than 100 glittered and iced mechanical candles in three sizes. We could also work in the weeks ahead by placing dried cream and purple hydrangea, burgundy cockscomb and little birds, butterflies and bird's nests in and on the cages. Two days before the wedding, by using oasis igloos and wreaths we added again a multitude of fresh flowers to create a lush, garden scene on each of the reception tables. We used cream and blush roses, burgundy and white cushion and spider mums, white mini roses, calla lilies and hypericum berries with galax leaves and grass inside and outside of each cage. By adding satin ribbons and raffia ribbon to match the table linens, the effect was spectacular!!" -Helen Morris, Helen's Flowers
