| The Griffin Wedding @ The Atlanta Botanical Gardens |
Exactly what kind of flowers do you select when you you get married in the Rose Garden of an award winning botanical garden? Well the answer is, any kind that you like of course. Which is exactly what this visionary bride did, faced with a large guest list for her dream wedding at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and a whopping table count of 29 tables for over 300 guests, our centerpieces got very creative. Since we were surrounded by beautiful flowers everywhere, why not go ultra chic on the tables with just large bundles of babies breath in crystal clear Eiffel Towers. The focus flowers were all put into the bride’s gorgeous traditional all white, English Garden cascade style bouquet. It was filled with Creme d’ la Creme Roses, Freesia, Dendrobium Orchids, Stock, Larkspur and English Ivy. The bridesmaids carried simple hand tied bouquets of baby’s breath, while the flowers girls each had a small kissing ball clad in tiny white sweetheart roses. For the ceremony site we used 54 feet of fresh smilax rope garland to drape each side the aisle and then lined the edges with white rose petals. There were two large urns filled with a glorious mix of white Gladiolus, Larkspur, Snapdragons, Stock, Lilies and Roses to create a faux alter space along the garden wall. These urns were relocated to the main buffet tables in the reception hall for dinner, then used flanked the main stage for her live 24 piece, Big Band during dancing portion of the reception, talk about your 3 for 1 use, but that is smart in the wedding game.
