When Hannah and her mother first came to us, it was obvious from the very beginning that this was going to be a spectacular wedding. We were brought on board not only for floral design but to also be their day of coordinator.
Oak Island Plantation is an amazing Antebellum estate situated 40 minutes Southeast of Birmingham, Alabama, on beautiful Lay Lake. The venue offers several sites for a ceremony as well as a reception; lake side, at the fountain/courtyard, the mansion itself, or at the barn. Hannah and Kyle chose to get married at the fountain and they could not have picked a more perfect day to do so.
The bride’s bouquet was a mounded clutch of large and stunning white dahlias, spray roses in multiple shades of pink, green hydrangea, cream roses, and was finished with the stems wrapped in ivory ribbon as well as a handkerchief (her something blue).
Kyle and his groomsmen wore classic blue suits. The groom’s lapel was adorned with a standard white rose, hot pink spray roses, and small leaves of dusty miller. The groomsmen wore standard hot pink rose boutonnieres.
The beautiful ladies in Hannah’s life carried clutch bridesmaid bouquets of circus roses, antique blue hydrangea, hot pink garden roses, green hypericum berries, dusty miller, orange spray roses, and were wrapped in fuchsia, satin ribbon.
Like we said, there is definitely no shortage of locations to take photos on this beautiful property.
The ceremony took place on the lawn in front of the fountain at sunset. Arrangements were placed around the fountain in the wedding flowers of purple stock, antique blue hydrangea, orange and hot pink garden roses, orange, yellow, and pink dahlias, miscellaneous greenery, dusty miller, Belles of Ireland, and hot pink and orange spray roses.
For the family’s seats, large heads of antique blue hydrangea with greenery were tied to the chairs with ivory satin ribbon.
Guest tables, both inside and out, alternated between repurposed bridesmaid’s bouquets, mounded cube arrangements, and candles surrounded by a wreath of flowers.
Guests ate from a buffet and danced the night away on the terrace. When it was time for the night to end, Hannah, Kyle, and their guests lit lanterns which sailed away in the sky.
Thanks again to Hannah and Kyle for allowing us to be a part of your day. Congratulations to you both, and we wish you many years of happiness!
