October Wedding In Horse Country

Elizabeth Beckman (Bride) LEXINGTON, KY
An Indiana girl and a Kentucky boy decided to get married in a 1800s mansion in Lexington, Kentucky. It was the perfect day surrounded by their closest family and friends. The flowers were a big part of bride's vision, and FiftyFlowers did not disappoint! With the help of some aspiring florists (mother and sister of the bride, mother and sisters of the groom), the 1500 blooms transformed into a lush indoor garden landscape. The majority of the wedding guests did not know that the blooms arrived by the box on the brides front porch only 2 days earlier! The vendors were shocked when they heard the florals were arranged by a group of novices! A total of 14 centerpieces were made, ... 2 boutonnieres well as additions to the garland on the staircase and the four fireplaces. Show more

Flowers Used for Elizabeth Beckman's Arrangements

Used for: Other, Centerpieces

Great addition to enhance the garden theme as these flowers had great texture and depth (we left them long and poking out of the arrangement).

Used for: Other, Centerpieces

Disappointed as the berry branches were quite fragile and lost many berries in transportation and arrangement phases.

Used for: Centerpieces

Traveled well and stayed beautiful for a couples weeks after the event.

Soft Pink Fresh Carnation Flowers ( 100 stems Allow 4 business days for delivery )

Used for: Centerpieces

Great quality, but a lot pinker than I bargained for. Picture is true to color. Ended up using them them sparingly.

Pink Astilbe Flower ( 50 stems )

Used for: Boutonnieres, Centerpieces

Great for texture, height and filler.

Used for: Centerpieces

Much larger leaf and sturdier stalk than I expected. Worked well for the greenery base in the centerpieces.

Whimsical Garden Rose Sample Pack ( Whimsical Sample Pack )

Used for: Other, Centerpieces

The blooms were entirely closed on delivery, and opened up nicely in the first 24 hours. By the wedding day, they had "over-bloomed" so that the center was visible. The colors were great for adding the blush color I desired.

Used for: Other, Centerpieces

Essential for adding texture and the "droopy" or "cascading look that I was aiming for.

Used for: Centerpieces

Great for a filler. These were the superior berry compared to the black pearl ligustrum berries.
