  •     A wedding is one of the most important moments in a couple’s life. It’s a day when they come together to declare their love and commitment to each other in front of their loved ones. As an events florist, it’s our privilege to help them create a fairy-tale day that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Alexandra and Yousef’s wedding at Ault Park in Cincinnati was a dreamy affair that will inspire every bride-to-be. The Venue: Ault Park is an ideal location for outdoor weddings. With over 224 acres of lush greenery, the park provides a perfect setting for enchanted garden weddings. The picturesque venue creates a romantic and whimsical atmosphere that makes every wedding special. The Ceremony: We created a luxurious arch on a white stage background for the ceremony. The lush floral arrangement, combined with greenery created a dreamy ambiance. We lined the wedding aisle with their large centerpieces, which added elegance to the aisle. The overall setup felt like a grand entrance to the ceremony area, which befitted the occasion. The Reception: After the wedding ceremony, we moved the guests to the reception Pavillion. We placed the tall centerpieces on their gold stands, which added height to the tables. The low centerpieces, adorned with lots of candles, decorated the rectangle tables, creating an intimate setting for guests. We moved the wedding arch behind the sweetheart table and placed more candles on that. Greenery grew up the columns, and the bistro lighting on the ceiling created a magical garden party ambience. The Details: It’s the little things that add the final touch to the fairy-tale wedding celebration. We carefully chose the color and the texture, for each detail. Every detail was aimed at creating the perfect atmosphere that Alexandra and Yousef had dreamed […]

  •         Weddings can be described as one of the most important days in any person’s life. From the flowers to the venue, every detail adds to the magic of the day. One wedding that stands out in terms of its creative and whimsical nature is the wedding of Hannah and Luke at French House in Cincinnati, Ohio. Hannah’s use of heirloom-collected vessels and containers from her family, as well as her bouquet filled with vibrant summer colors, made the wedding an experience to remember. In this blog post, we invite you to take a closer look at this beautiful and unique wedding and how the couple made it a day to remember. The first thing that caught the eye of anyone who attended the wedding was the picturesque centerpieces that sat atop each table. Hannah’s use of vessels and containers from her family was a unique touch that added a touch of nostalgia and history to the ceremony. One such vessel was a water pitcher from her grandmother’s depression glass collection, which was used to hold the stunning and vibrant flowers. Another heirloom used were the candle holders from the mother of the brides wedding. The mixture of light blue delphinium, coral peonies, magenta sweet peas, jasmine vine, peach ranunculus, light pink ranunculus, scabiosa, and greenery made for an explosion of summer colors that took everyone’s breath away. The wedding ceremony was held in the Sunken Garden at French House, which added to the charm and intimacy of the day. The stacked Harlow-style stands with coordinated floral arrangements created a unity that tied everything together. The beauty of the garden was further enhanced by the bright sunshine that filled the area. As the couple exchanged their vows, there was a serene beauty that overwhelmed the entire setting. […]

The peonies, roses, and ranunculus used in the floral arrangements were not only beautiful but also added a touch of warmth that was perfect for their special day. Let us dive in and take a closer look at their gorgeous wedding that took place at The Pinecroft and St. Francis Serif. Abby and Jake’s wedding ceremony took place at St. Francis Serif, a lovely church with high ceilings lined with tall, gorgeous columns. The couple got married in front of a beautiful backdrop of the altar that was adorned with magnificent peach and coral summer flowers. The aisle was decorated with simple ivory satin hand-tied bows. The understated elegance of the ceremony perfectly complemented the radiant joy on the faces of the couple and their loved ones. The reception, which took place at The Pinecroft, was equally stunning.

Abby’s bridal bouquet was also an absolute dream, composed of delicate and romantic flowers.

She and her partner, Dan, wanted a serene and romantic atmosphere to tie the knot, and they found the perfect location in The Steam Plant in Dayton, Ohio. With pastel shades of lavender, light blue, light pink, and champagne, their wedding was a breathtakingly beautiful affair. The couple chose the perfect flowers and linens, and with each detail meticulously planned, their wedding was the dreamy event that they had imagined. Taylor and Dan’s wedding at The Steam Plant was a work of art. The stunning flower arrangements were the first thing that caught the eye, with lush full-flowers spread across the venue. The ceremony and reception spaces were the same, and there was a flip made during the cocktail hour to repurpose the flowers. The ceremony aisle was adorned with a long white runner with large arrangements at the back that were later placed as elevated centerpieces.  At the front of the ceremony, a beautiful arch draped with white fabric and a bar of flowers was filled with hydrangeas and roses. It was a beautiful day, and outside the cocktail hour was breathtaking, with white and light blue floral tablecloths with small lush florals matching perfectly. The reception was equally enchanting. There were tall glass vases with flowers and lots of candles setting the mood, coupled with low compote arrangements surrounded by candles on other tables. The head table was set in front of the ceremony arch to repurpose it and to frame the couple for pictures while they sat. The wedding cake was a fabulous cake meadow of flowers almost as tall as the cake. It was a masterpiece, which matched everything else in the wedding. As Taylor and Dan walked into the reception, […]
