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).

Unexpected Places to Find Inspiration: Part III

As we continue to list out more unexpected places that you may just bump into inspiration, keep in mind that inspiration comes from a communicated idea that strikes something inside us. 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.

Unexpected Places to Find Inspiration: Part II

The thing about finding inspiration is that one never knows when it might strike. Whether it hits like a ton of bricks or slowly builds, having the openness to be inspired by even the simplest of experiences is something of a super power (and now I'm regretting not titling this post series "Adventures of The Incredible Inspiration). It may be that such a super power is a learned practice as easy as being aware of everyday experiences and having the expectation to inevitably find inspiration. Simply viewing daily life through a different lens can even make the most mundane errands seem like a visit to the museum!

With its unlimited photo scrolling, how-to lists, and #goals, Pinterest has revolutionized modern event planning. Many of our brides bring us photos of bouquets and arrangements that they love and while we do share Pinterest mood boards with our clients, there is something really quite special about a couple who has found extra-floral inspiration.
