WEDDING FLOWERS

WEDDING FLOWERS

HI!

For this week's Wedding Wednesday, I want to talk all about the amazing florals at our wedding. Tanarah Luxe Floral (TLF's Instagram) did all of the flowers and the installations. TLF is based in Little Rock, AR. From start to finish the process was amazing. Daniel and I met with Tanarah on a Saturday morning early in our wedding planning process. We had a long design meeting with her and discussed the overall vision for the florals. She 100% understood the vibe we were wanting, and we both walked out of the meeting feeling completely confident that our florals would be exactly what we wanted. TLF nailed it on the wedding day. O M G y'all!!! From the ceremony columns covered in floral, to the centerpieces, to the hanging installation above the dance floor, TLF knocked it out of the park with the flowers. I also have to give a shoutout to our amazing wedding planner, Jessica Kersey, aka JLK Weddings (her Instagram). TLF and JLK are a DREAM. I'd get married 100 times over if it meant I could work with these two again and again. 

Prepare for photo overload! The flowers, for me, were the most important design aspect of the wedding. We really put an emphasis on the floral and I am so thankful we did. 

 For the bouquets, I wanted lots of greenery and very airy and light flowers. They ended up being beautiful.

 We got married at Daniel's house. His house has these beautiful columns at the steps we were going to get married on. Jessica and I talked about making a big impact with the columns. These columns are TALL, you guys. I don't even know how TLF pulled this one off.

 This angle shows how insane these columns were. When I first saw them on the wedding day, I DIED. I'll be talking about these for the rest of my life.

 Daniel and I wanted our pup, Nelson, to be a part of the wedding day. He walked out into the ceremony with the groomsmen, so of course he needed to have a floral collar. He was the real star of the show, if you ask me.

 Okay, okay, okay, I'm still PINCHING myself that this was our wedding. For the reception, I always wanted an installation on the dance floor that was lush and beautiful. When I was on the dance floor, I wanted to be able to look up, and see flowers. That's exactly what happened!

 I die!!!

 I snuck down to the reception tent while everything was being set up, and I couldn't believe how intricate this installation was!

 The centerpieces were so dreamy.

 This picture shows how giant the floral installation above the dance floor was. There was a moment during the reception, where I was surrounded by all of my friends on the dance floor, and I looked up and saw that there were individual roses hung upside down above us and in that moment, I was so incredibly happy. Our wedding day was so surreal because it was genuinely everything Daniel and I had imagined.

Basically, our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Daniel and I can't believe we are so lucky. I can't say thank you enough to Tanarah for exceeding our expectations. Jessica was a dream to work with, as well. I felt like every time I sat down and talked to Jessica about what we wanted for the wedding, she instantly got it. I don't know what else you can ask for out of a wedding planner. 

Every photo was taken by BJ Matthews of B. Matthews Photo. You can find him here and here. I'll never be able to say enough about BJ. Just look at those photos, then RUN to find yourself a fiance and then hire him to be your wedding photographer!!! Okay!!

My dress is the Dare gown by Hayley Paige. I got it from Tesori (find them on Instagram here) located in Fayetteville, AR. All of the bridesmaids dresses were by Hayley Paige Occasions from Tesori. Daniel and the groomsmen's tuxes were from Menguin

See you next time!
