Emily + Patrick
The Only Decor Your Wedding Needs

A whole year has gone by and still Tom + Lindsay's wedding comes to our minds as one of the best (happy 1 year, you two!). Feeling like it was set atop a cloud, this cocktail celebration was an absolute dream. If I had to define what it is about this particular event that makes it so romantically spectacular, I would say it's the air of simplistic elegance provided by the only decorations: floral designs.

Confessions of an Evergreen Florist: Part I

More than once I have been at a social gathering making small talk with vague strangers who, upon hearing that I am a floral designer, have informed me in some way that they would just love to be a florist. And while I do love my job, I am here to inform you that it isn't all glamorous. I'm looking at you, Chelsea Peretti (and your Netflix stand-up bit about having my serene florist dream-job). So here's Part One of the dirt on being a florist at Evergreen.

A Fresh Spin on Rustic

The word "rustic" tends to get a hesitant reaction at EFC but we recently made designs for a styled shoot at the Rusty River Barn that have completely redeemed the rustic feel. Typically when I hear "rustic", I think burlap and boots and a mason jar of sweet tea (not Evergreen's cup of tea). However, these images from Sweet Williams Photography give me all the wild, romantic, Tuscan vibes that I can get on board with!

Pop of Purple

Something Old Dayton  recently hosted their second Pop-Up Wedding Event and, guys, I am SO here for it. "Wait, what is a pop-up wedding?", you ask...Well, let me start by saying that it's nothing if not magical. Mari and Kyle Foster at Something Old Dayton transform their studio into a small ceremony site, taking care of all the details, so that the only job the happy couples have is to pop, I mean, show up. There is something so fun and romantic about the pop-up wedding concept and this purple and peachy-blush toned scene is plum proof.

Garden State of Mind

Nearly a year has gone by and still Jenna + Casey's garden-party nuptials are still on our minds. This adorable affair took place at Scarlet Oaks Estate and was full of joy, whimsy, and (of course) garden blooms. Nicole Clarey beautifully captured these images for us to soak up the details of this garden-party to remember. Happy 1 year anniversary to this wonderful couple!

All The Little Things

When it comes to planning your event, the emotional spectrum spans anywhere from "I have no idea what I'm doing, this thing is going up in flames" to "Planning may be my calling. Should I quit my day job?". Whether you have had your wedding planned since age 7, or you feel like you're being suffocated by seating charts and tulle, hiring a professional is totally worth it.

Be Still, My Tablescape

Much like receiving a warm hug from Rembrandt, this Golden Age inspired photoshoot with Mari Foster from Something Old Dayton welcomes you back! If you are just now joining us, I recommend you see the sister post to this one here (for context's sake). Sure to take your breath away, this stunning tablescape straight out of a still life painting certainly deserves a post of its own.

Be Still, My Heart

The year 1650 called, it wants its still life paintings back...and I don't blame them! This styled shoot with Mari Foster at Something Old Dayton is an absolute dream! Caroline Koehler simply outdid herself capturing these designs. Never have I ever had such a difficult time selecting images from a shoot and I may just have to make this a three-part post (if you're lucky).

What's Black, White, & Elegantly Modern?

You can't beat this sleek, design savvy wedding surrounded by dazzling views of Columbus, especially with a bride and groom as stylish as they come! Alongside event design by Events Held DearJuniper's rooftop venue, and Danielle and Todd's vision, EFC's most modern wedding to date was born. The couple's attention to detail and tasteful use of personal touch was nothing short of rad (seriously...just being a part of their big day boosted our cool-factor by 1000%).

How To Push the Boundaries of Floral Design

Timeless. Romantic. Elegant. Emotional. All words that could be used to describe elements that EFC strives for. But also among them is “evolving”. A large reason that I love being apart of Evergreen Flower Co. is that our team recognizes that we haven’t “arrived”, and it’s understood that we never will. We are constantly brainstorming and questioning, looking for ways that we can push ourselves creatively. To grow as artists, to push the floral design boundaries.

The Flowers Speak for Themselves

There are many elements that work together with floral design and an extremely important aspect is the actual product being used. At EFC, we are constantly on the hunt for blooms and greens that intrigue and communicate. We sense the personalities of various products and intuitively choose one over another to fit a specific mood or occasion. Often times we even become emotionally attached to our product, feeling sad when the "head" of the flower accidentally snaps off or loses all its petals (we aren't crazy, it's fine).

So trust your instinct, the emotions attached to your source of inspiration. After all, when planning an event, you are wanting to curate a space to communicate a feeling to your guests.
