Southern Vintage Wedding Perfection

Leigh Ann & Miles enjoyed the most gorgeous Atlanta wedding on the most perfect spring day on April 2, 2011 at The Trolley Barn in Inman Park. Jason Travis Photography shot the day to perfection, capturing the designs of Atlanta Floral Designer Le Bonne Fleur ,some great quiet moments and all those little details. 

The couple envisioned a vintage wedding, highlighting the handmade crafts the Bride and recruited friends made for the event. Colorful paper pinwheels were incorporated throughout and were such lovely, whimsical touches. Honey pots favors were also left on each table for the guests to take with them.

Le Bonne Fleur used the vintage inspired florals and created colorful, vintage bridal bouquet, boutonnières and centerpieces using a variety of texture, shapes, and color flowers to capture the look and feel. 

 The mixed peony bouquets also included lilac, dusty miller , ranunculus, hellebores, parrot tulips and many other florals.

The Bride collected blue mason jars and milk glass from friends and antique shops around the city to use for the mixed floral centerpieces.

Special details such as the Bride’s custom broach made this unique event. 

And last but not least, don’t forget about the handsome groom and groomsmen in their garden rose boutonnières by Le Bonne Fleur.

Fleurty Fridays: A Little Fun w Color

Who said you can’t have fun on your wedding day? Nothing better than accomplishing this with bright and fresh floral bouquet filled with peonies, garden roses and other fragrant blooms. One of Le Bonne Fleur’s August brides chose a fun, flirty and striking bouquet which complimented her glow on her wedding day.

A beautiful ceremony at Peachtree United Methodist in Buckhead followed by an intimate and lively reception at The Cherokee Club, this Bride’s peach and coral florals added to the overall mood for this Love-filled day.

Fleurty Fridays: Snap Dragon

The Meaning of Snap Dragon: Derived from the Greek words “anti,” meaning like, and “rhin,” meaning nose, antirrhinum, the snapdragon’s botanical name, is a fitting description of this snout-shaped flower.  It’s said that the common name for this colorful flower comes from the snap it makes when the sides of the “dragon’s mouth” are gently squeezed.  While their actual origin is unknown, it’s believed that snapdragons were originally wildflowers in Spain and Italy.

Legend has it that concealing a snapdragon makes a person appear fascinating and cordial, and in the language of flowers, snapdragons are said to represent both deception (perhaps tied to the notion of concealment) and graciousness.

As seen in this week’s Style Me Pretty Little Black Book blog with Atlanta Floral Designer Le Bonne Fleur, David Murray Weddings, and Ashley Baber Weddings and many more vendors (click HERE to view the full article) snap dragons and garden roses were the star of this Atlanta engagement shoot at The Swan House at the Atlanta History Center.

Snap dragons have always been a favorite of mine, as they can provide a lovely bit of texture for a bouquet or arrangement. There variety of colors and bold and unique form of blooms create a beautiful backbone to a not-so-formal bouquet.

If you are interested in scheduling a consultation with Le Bonne Fleur and finding the perfect flower for your event, please contact me!

Fleurty Fridays: Who Designs the Designer’s Flowers?

Mike and I were married just a couple weeks ago in Jamaica at Rockhouse Hotel. It was amazing and everything we hoped it to be. Surrounded by our amazing friends and family, we had a party we will always remember and cherish.

Using some of Atlanta’s most talented vendors like David Murray Wedding, Paper Daisies, Dolma Pearl, Priscilla of Boston and many more, we couldn’t have been more pleased. Thank you to All!!

One question I received countless times while we were planning the wedding: “Who is going to design your flowers?!?” Well, my first response would always be, “Definitely not me!” I know how much work flowers can be and also how important they can be. I also know from working with clients how stressful the wedding day is. That is why I did not even consider designing my own flowers for my wedding day.

If you find a floral designer you trust and connect with, the wedding flowers can be the least of your worries on your big day.

Since I work with flowers everyday, they mean a lot to me. I appreciate so many flowers for different things and that is why it was difficult for me to narrow down which to use. I had to choose which flower evoked the right style and feeling for the event and which I felt best represented my personality.  A peony and phalaenopsis orchid bouquet were my final choice. For me, this was perfect and I know I will look back on my wedding photos and be confident in my decision.

If you would like to discuss more how to tailor your wedding flowers to your personality and event, contact Le Bonne Fleur for a private consultation.
