Floral Family Traditions

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 & Ben

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.

Emmalee & Ben

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!

Southern Chic

Strap on your boots for Halle & Steve’s rustic, yet charming ranch wedding filled with personal touches from head to toe! Stroud, OK, provided the perfect setting for a wedding styled in southern flair and vintage accents. A one-of-a-kind, awe-inspiring – and truly breathtaking! – floral chandelier created with Eremerus, Curly Willow, Wild Smilax, Amaranthus and other wild flowers hung as the centerpiece of the ceremony.

The reception left no detail unturned: from floral adorned wine barrels at the barn’s entrance to nostalgic photos of the couple’s family, a wagon wheel inspired cake to centerpieces designed in antique french pails and vintage dough bowls.  A unique, bold wall draped in greenery framed the dais and created the perfect backdrop for the new “Mr. & Mrs.”  And no reception would be complete without a floral adorned wagon wheel chandelier, where the bride and groom danced the night away.

From the buffalo sculpture to the bride’s cowboy boots, this wedding was 100% made in Oklahoma and full of southern charm! Cheers to the happy couple!

So, which details are you swooning over?

2013 was an exciting year at The Fleuriste!   We finally got through the holidays and realized a social gathering was in order … one where we could unwind and celebrate a great year!  { One where we might just get Elfed Up }

With stunning views of the Myriad Botanical Garden and Downtown Oklahoma City, Team Fleuriste and friends enjoyed hors d‘oeuvres and libations at the beautiful Historic Landmark Colcord Hotel!  The Colcord’s Sullivan Room was the perfect venue and definitely “the place to be” that night!  Bring The Party Productions provided the perfect dance jams and The SNL Booth captured all the fun we were clearly having with their fabulous props and photo booth.
