Design a white and green wedding, but make it lush and grand? Absolutely! With this Columbia Winery wedding, we were able to take a classical color palette and turn it into a breathtaking design. Endless white roses and lush greenery surrounded everything, from the welcome sign to the wine barrels. The bouquets were designed using lush white roses with long stems, giving the bridal party a classical clean look. The arch was stunning, reaching high above the door way, filled with white roses and greenery. A clean yet grand look for a ceremony, and the perfect segue into a room with a floral ceiling at the Columbia Winery.

Dancing Under A Floral Ceiling

After coming down a candle lit staircase with cascading greenery, the guests would see a floral ceiling in the Columbia Winery reception hall. No words are needed to explain the butterflies you would get watching a first dance under a ceiling of hanging wisteria. This ceiling installation changed the look of the whole room! The head table had a long row of floral arrangements at the front and more placed across the top. Behind the head table were cascading floral arrangements on the wine barrels. An absolutely grand head table to be seated at to get front seats to the magic happening on the dance floor. Throughout the room were various tall and low floral arrangements and candles on each reception table. We love taking a classical color palette and turning it in to a wonderful dream come true!

We love doing weddings at the Fairmount Olympic Hotel! Every corner of this venue is a prefect photo background. Look at how beautiful and creative all of these bridal party photos are! For this wedding, we designed a classic white and lush palette, but with a modern twist. A truly elegant modern white wedding! All of the bouquets were designed with lush white flowers, including roses, ranunculus, and whimsical bits of delphinium. 

Modern Meets Classic Ceremony Arch

The ceremony arch was an absolute beauty! Puffs of white florals and airy whimsical touches laced this asymmetrical arch. White lush roses, hydrangea, and clouds of baby’s breath made these clouds of floral lush and stunning. Adding in beautiful stems of delphinium and cherry blossom added texture and airy whimsical elements. On either side of the aisle was a lush row of white petals and tall floral arrangements. These tall white floral arrangements incorporated the same lush and whimsical elements as the arch. As the couple walked down the aisle after they said their vows and kissed, everyone was ready to celebrate the now, husband and wife.

An Elegant Lush Reception

For this grand reception, the head table was placed in front of the lush white arch. We designed a cascading floral trail to match the lovely arch elements and have it flow from the top of the head table to the bottom. With candles lit around the head table, the front of the room looked immaculate. The guest reception tables were designed with tall lush floral arrangements and candelabra. This elegant and modern white wedding was an absolute beauty!

A recipe for enchantment: mix one part secret garden, two parts romantic summer flowers, three parts breath-taking floral installations, a sprinkling of candlelight, a touch of fairytale whimsy, and top it all off with delicate elven crowns. This enchanting wedding had it all! Ana and Ori’s September wedding at Bella Luna Farms (expertly planned by Jacky at Event Success!) was a feast for the eyes and the imagination. Ana dreamed of a floral fantasy wedding, with an oversized bridal bouquet, a chuppah dripping with flowers, and a cozy dinner by candlelight. We were honored to help make her vision of an enchanting garden wedding at Bella Luna a reality!

A Romantic Garden Ceremony

Ana and Ori’s enchanting ceremony took place in the center of the Bella Luna Farms garden under a lush floral chuppah dripping in blush, mauve, and cream flowers.

An Enchanting Wedding Reception In The Grape House

The enchantment continued with a candlelit dinner in the Grape House. Delicate glass orbs hung from the ceiling, vintage candelabras graced the tables, and behind the head table, flowers climbed up the walls to the ceiling.

Dancing In A Enchanted Floral Wonderland

After dinner, guests adjourned to a sailcloth tent for dessert and dancing. The couple danced the night away under a lush floral ceiling installation. And check out the gorgeous vintage furniture and lanterns by Vintage Ambiance! This was truly a night to remember!! All of the details came together so beautifully to make this enchanting garden wedding at Bella Luna unforgettable!

Joanna and Ben’s August wedding at Chateau Lill was truly a fairytale come to life! The Chateau’s park-like grounds were the perfect backdrop to this elegant green and white wedding. Upon arrival, guests were welcomed with a glass of bubbly (check out the custom champagne wall by Gene Alexander Designs!) and ushered through the first of three floral arches through the vineyard, past the pond, and up under the trees to the fairytale ceremony site.

A Fairytale Brought to Life in the Dreamy White Ceremony

The couple exchanged vows under a lush floral arch filled with English tea and garden roses, dahlias, delphinium, hydrangea, and stock blossoms. The wedding ceremony design was an enchanting combination of clean modern lines and overgrown romantic floral designs – all framed perfectly by the leafy tree canopy of Chateau Lill’s fairytale upper garden.

A Fairytale Wedding Reception Tent

After cocktails on the lawn, guests headed back down through the vineyard to the cool respite of the white reception tent. Here, dark chocolate and black blooms mingled with the white to create an elevated black-tie atmosphere. At the center of the tent, over the long head table, hung a stunning floral chandelier dripping with white blooms. And, as the evening light faded, the ceiling twinkled with fairy lights – a perfect end to this fairytale wedding day at Chateau Lill!

The Wedding of Emily and Frank at Novelty Hill Januik Winery

It’s been almost a year since this beautiful, romantic pastel wedding of Emily and Frank on a sunny spring day in March. Lavender and blush roses, purple and peach stock, the prettiest ranunculus in shades of lavender, purple calla lilies, fragrant jasmine vines. and many more early spring flowers brightened up their beautiful wedding day.

A Romantic Pastel Ceremony

The ceremony inside the ballroom of the chic Novelty Hill Januik Winery was transformed into a romantic spring garden featuring fragrant blooms, lots of hurricane candles, and a rounded garden arch. The ceremony arch incorporated lush spring flowers and greenery in an a-symmetrical design style.

A Dreamy Purple Reception

We loved this elegant reception setup with romantic ceiling draping, lavender table linens, silver Chameleon chairs, and of course dreamy centerpieces in shades of light purple, blush pink, light, peach, cream, and greens. Lots of silver mercury votive candles and soft wall up-lighting added amber light for this romantic pastel wedding. Swoon!

This couple was so much fun to work with! Their smiles and cheerful personalities could light up any room and you can see that through their photos. Seeing couples laughing and enjoying their big day makes us so happy to have been a part of it. We are so grateful Roddy Chung was able to capture all of the special moments and smiles! Hint: There is some epic photographs below – just stunnning!

We chose soft blush and white florals to design all of the floral arrangements and bouquets, transforming Chihuly into a lush glasshouse wedding.

A Lush Flower Garden Aisle

We were able to create a perfectly lush gardenesque ambiance for this Chihuly Glasshouse wedding. Flowers arranged in varying heights and styles lined the aisle, leading up to the front of the Glasshouse. As sunlight poured into the room, the details and beauty of the lush white and blush cascading floral arrangements came to life. The floral arrangements were designed with hydrangeas, roses, anemones, cherry blossom branches, and delphiniums. The aisle transformed into a flower garden, and the bride walked down the aisle with her mom. Cheers and celebrations for the bride and groom commence once the ceremony comes to an end as they kiss.

A Golden Glasshouse

As the sun sets on the Glasshouse, the bright orange and yellow hues in the glass ceiling art created an almost golden light at night. The celebrations continued with toasts and dancing as the couple took their seats at the head table. The head table backdrop was a golden metal design, and on either side of it, cascading floral arrangements were placed. Tall lush floral arrangements and candelabras decorated each table, along with a variety of candles to go around each centerpieces. The lush floral arrangements were designed with hydrangeas, roses, anemones, cherry blossom branches, and delphiniums. The lush cascading bar arrangement was an absolute show stopper for everyone to see as they grabbed their drinks throughout the night.

We love a wedding full of textures and unique characteristics! Lindsay and Matt did not shy away from bringing their personal touches into this velvety red winter wedding. And what better venue to have a wedding like this than The Ruins? We used so many different textured florals and unique designs while designing this wedding, and we loved every bit of it! Bringing together roses, anemone, eucalyptus, and amaranthus in all different shades from blush to red, the bridal bouquet turned out gorgeous. All of the bridesmaids worn velvet red dresses that we thought beautifully tied in with the florals and textures of the rest of the wedding.

A Ceremony At The Mantel

Nothing says a winter wedding like a fireplace. We designed a lush and growing arrangement for the fireplace mantel. The lush wild greenery in the arrangement complemented the striking florals and draping amaranths. We designed the floral arrangement on one side of the mantel, while offsetting it with candles and hurricanes on the opposite side. With petals and candles lining the aisle, the cascading fireplace was the focus of the room.

A Renaissance Reception

The ballroom in The Ruins is an European inspired masterpiece. With hand painted murals, which tie in hints of life on the PNW, it creates a mesmerizing ambiance. Dimly lit and darkly painted, it makes for a perfect place to hold a royal velvety red winter wedding reception. The gold chairs and linens from CORT decorated with gold candelabras and red taper candles create a vibrant and rich color palette for the night. The celebrations carried on as the couple danced the night away surrounded by their loved ones. We are glad to have been able to be a part of this unique wedding!

This wedding is all about volume! The Hilton Bellevue was transformed into a wedding in the clouds! The brides voluminous dress, the large round luscious floral arrangements, and let us not even start on how grand the head table looked! We went for an all white design for this wedding, and we can easily say that it felt like we were in white clouds by the end of the setup. The bridal bouquet had a cascading design with beautiful white orchids. For the bridesmaids, we kept the bouquets pretty simple with a single rose stem surrounded by babies breath. We enjoyed working with Master Plan Events on this event and making sure everything the beautiful couple wanted was possible.

All In White Ceremony

All the guests wait in the white draped room for the bride to enter. When she walked down the aisle with her veil and dress trailing behind her, all the guest are in awe. The whole bridal party was wearing white, celebrating the couple in a room draped with white fabric, with large white floral arrangements lining the aisle all the way to the back of the stage. This is no doubt, a wedding in the clouds! The floral arrangements were designed with white roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath, creating beautiful round floral clouds. Everyone cheers and celebrated as the ceremony ends and the newly married the couple kiss.

Dining In A Floral Cloud

The head table was a breath taking work of art. Just look at the cascading clouds of floral! The head table was designed using fluffy hydrangeas, fully bloomed roses, and clustered of baby’s breath. The tables in the ballroom had rows of candles and a variety of tall and low floral arrangements and bud vases decorating them. The reception hall had an elegant ambiance that was strikingly beautiful. The head table was the main attraction in the room! Who would be able to take their eyes off of that table as the bride and groom sat amongst clouds of cascading florals?

As wedding and event florists, we often get asked to weigh in on the hot 2023 wedding floral trends we see our clients asking for in the coming season. And, since our average wedding client books our services between 6 and 18 months before their wedding date, we are in an excellent position to give you an idea.

So, here it is, our predictions for the popular 2023 Wedding Floral Trends:

  • Ceiling and Wall Installations
  • Ceremony Floral Backdrops
  • Head Tables
  • Color of the Year 2023: Viva Magenta

Ceiling and Wall Installations are a Big 2023 Wedding Floral Trend

First up: Ceiling Installations, Ceiling Chandeliers, and Wall Installations. Oh my goodness, who doesn’t love entering a room and being showered in roses or lush hanging greenery? 2023 brides love utilizing every inch of their ceremony and reception venues – from the floor all the way up to the ceiling. These hanging installations can incorporate greenery vines, greenery garlands, silk or fresh flower chandeliers, floral mixed with crystal strands or antique chandeliers. And there are no limits for the 2023 bride.

Below are some more installation projects we created for very recent weddings and events – and in 2023 we will definitely see more of this trend.
