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.

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!

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!

Unexpected Places to Find Inspiration: Part I

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.
