When we first talked with Mary and Patrick about their wedding florals, we spoke about a muted pastel color palette. Hues that were cheerful and colorful as a nod to their late summer wedding date, yet created a cohesive visual experience with the unique museum-like feeling of their reception space at Top of the Rock.

We paired tans and dusty mauves with apricots and purples. Light blushes and peach with coppers and golds. The arrangements highlighted lush blooms like garden roses with a healthy dose of locally grown zinnias, lisianthus, and rudbeckia. Their wedding spoke to summer in the variety of flowers, as well as the soft subtle hues down the color spectrum.

The Ceremony

For the ceremony, the women carried flower-forward bouquets against their incredible floral-patterned bridesmaid dresses. If there’s a layered pattern look we can get behind, it’s floral-on-floral.

We created a long, 16 foot garland with whimsical greenery and flowers for the cross overlooking Table Rock Lake inside Chapel of the Ozarks.

The Reception

The reception took place in The Wine Cellar at Top of the Rock, a unique dining space full of wooden accents, stone fireplaces, and historic artifacts lining shelves against the walls. When planning their florals and decor, we wanted to ensure that the floral design matched the aesthetic of the venue.

We created two types of centerpieces for the large rectangular tables. Half of the guest tables had long, garden-like arrangements growing up from the center of the tables for an organic floral feature. And half of the tables had two lush floral centerpieces in footed gold compotes. Each individual seat even had a bloom tucked into the napkin. The two styles created a nice visual variation throughout the room.

This chic wedding had us feeling like we were creating little secret gardens with each floral element, layering flowers on flowers between the detailed floral dresses, floral invitations, and floral decor. It was such a pleasure getting to know Mary and Patrick during their wedding planning journey.
