On June 1, 2019, Christine and Michael tied the knot and had a beautiful mountain wedding in North Carolina! Their summer color palette included pinky-peach hues, creamy ivory and a ton of lush greens that complimented the natural environment.
Christine envisioned a rustic, elegant wedding filled with fresh flowers and greenery, but with only two florists in town and a budget to stick with, she decided to DIY her flowers.
“I didn’t know anything about how to arrange flowers, and was nervous about trying to do it myself,” Christine shared in her Flower Story.
Before she ordered her wedding flowers, Christine spoke to one of our flower consultants, Chloe, who helped her create a wedding flower worksheet and offered advice.
Christine said, “She helped me understand the entire process from planning to arrange and how to care for the flowers after they’re arranged.”
With a little help, guidance, and Christine’s natural talent, she was able to create show-stopping arrangements!
Here’s what she ordered to make her arrangements:
- 36 stems of butterscotch cream garden roses
- 100 stems of high arena creamy peach roses
- 50 stems of scabiosa pods
- 75 stems of Sahara cream roses
- 200 stems of el aleli peach stock
- 12 bunches of white spray dahlia-style cremon
- 10 bunches of creamy pink spray roses
- 20 bunches of Italian Ruscus
- 2 extra-large packs of the eucalyptus greenery box
- 30 bunches of Israeli Ruscus
