Today’s #WeddingWednesday post focuses on a gorgeous couple who seamlessly blended two very different backgrounds and family traditions. Team Fleuriste loved being a part of this stunning wedding and had a blast planning special moments with the bride and groom!
Emmalee and Ben wanted both families to feel comfortable at their wedding so they took great strides to make sure her Protestant German family was at home with his Catholic Italian family. “The ambiance of the entire evening heartened to the big, Italian festivities Ben was accustomed to, but did it in a softened way that also complimented the more low-key celebrations my family is used to. It was a big party, but the softness of the floral arrangements, the garden theme, the warm, golden lights … all of it subdued the “glitter” to make the night more intimate,” the bride told us.
The bride and groom poignantly included floral surprises to celebrate several special people. Taking a cue from the flowers his late father would give to his mother, Ben requested a single yellow rose in each arrangement at the wedding. In order to honor her hero, her father, Emmalee requested a boutonniere using Edelweiss (a flower that only grows in certain areas of the Alps). The “Sound of Music” song has always held a special memory for the bride and her father – she even surprised him with the song as their first dance!
Cheers to Emmalee and Ben! To see more photos of this gorgeous wedding, be sure to check out their gallery on our website!
