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.Read More
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.Read More
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!Read More
Using a wild mix of found product and local Sweet Pea to match the soft romance of Quicksand Roses achieves an untamed vibe that is married to a gentle, modern sweetness.Read More
Using mall Spring blooms, Tulips, Poppies, and an assortment of Ranunculus, this design is full of whimsical movement, incredibly complimenting colors, and negative space that is *flame emoji*.Read More
Really what it comes down to is not just one particular detail, but rather all of them combined that moves you in some way, which is why we were so excited to contribute florals to the Wes Anderson inspired nuptials of Katy and Frank.Read More
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.Read More
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).
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.Read More
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!Read More
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.
Getting a great detail shot of a bridal bouquet is a must for any wedding album and some of our favorite photos of our bouquets have been of them simply laying on the ground! I wanted to share some of our favorite bouquet photos, and it’s definitely no coincidence that these are all from our favorite film photographers...Read More
