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: Artichoke

History of the Artichoke:

The artichoke is a perennial in the thistle group of the sunflower family and is believed to be a native of the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands. In full growth, the plant spreads to cover an area about six feet in diameter and reaches a height of three to four feet. The “vegetable” that we eat is actually the plant’s flower bud. If allowed to flower, the blossoms measure up to seven inches in diameter and are a beautiful violet-blue color.

According to an Aegean legend and praised in song by the poet Quintus Horatius Flaccus, the first artichoke was a lovely young artichoke flower girl who lived on the island of Zinari. The god, Zeus was visiting his brother Poseidon one day when, as he emerged from the sea, he spied a beautiful young mortal woman. She did not seem frightened by the presence of a god, and Zeus seized the opportunity to seduce her. He was so pleased with the girl, who’s name was Cynara, that he decided to make her a goddess, so that she could be nearer to his home on Olympia. Cynara agreed to the promotion, and Zeus anticipated the trysts to come, whenever his wife Hera was away. However, Cynara soon missed her mother and grew homesick. She snuck back to the world of mortals for a brief visit. After she returned, Zeus discovered this un-goddess-like behavior. Enraged, he hurled her back to earth and transformed her into the plant we know as the artichoke. – WhatsCookingAmerica.net

Artichoke, yes, I said artichoke! I know this may sound a little different, but that’s exactly what I like about the artichoke. At Le Bonne Fleur we, like to put surprises in our bouquets sometimes. We love the classics, but a little pop of something interesting, just like an artichoke, can be the perfect accent.

My inner foodie loves to use produce like artichokes, cabbages, as well as fresh herbs to highlight an arrangement or wedding bouquet. It makes it fun, fresh and little playful.

Contact Le Bonne Fleur to discuss how we can incorporate artichokes in to you next event or bridal bouquet. Purple artichokes and green artichokes are best in spring and fall and can be found domestic from California.
