When Meredith came to us to discuss the flowers for her spring wedding we were thrilled to hear her ceremony and reception would be held at Willow Point Golf and Country Club in beautiful Alexander City, Alabama. It is located on the stunning Lake Martin and is absolutely one of Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market’s favorite country clubs!
Wonderful Birmingham photographer Amber Ford of Amber Ford Photography captured the day. We are always excited to work with Amber and are extremely grateful that she was willing to share these photos with us!
Designer Alan Townsend worked with Meredith to create the perfect spring look for Meredith and Ty’s April nuptials. Her bridal bouquet was a clutch wrapped in ivory satin and consisted of blooms such as white peonies, hot pink garden roses, light pink ranunculus, soft pink spray roses, white hydrangea, cream spray roses, and it was finished off with a color of Italian ruscus.
Meredith’s bridesmaids also carried clutch bouquets with star gazer lilies, Sarah Bernhardt peonies, hot pink garden roses, green button mums, and green hypericum berries. Each was wrapped in ivory ribbon with pearl accents.
We like to use a flower specific to the bride’s bouquet for the groom’s boutonniere. For Ty’s boutonniere we used a light pink ranunculus accented with green hypericium berries and wrapped in ivory satin.
The groomsmen’s lapels were decorated with soft pink spray roses and also accented with green hypericum berries.
Shades of pink and green were used throughout the wedding including the ceremony site which was the gazebo on the water. “Pew markers” were handheld bouquets of green hydrangea, hot pink garden roses, green hypericum berries, green button mums, and soft pink spray roses. Each bouquet was tied on using ivory satin ribbon.
Meredith wanted the flowers at the gazebo to make a statement as guests arrived. We used smilax vine to create a garden effect. Large bouquets of flowers were then attached to frame the entrance. These flowers included star gazer lilies, hot pink garden roses, green hydrangea, light pink snap dragons, cream stock, fuschia stock, bells of Ireland, green button mums, and pink tulips.
Centerpieces for the guest tables were kept simple. Some tables had cylinders with pink crushed glass and a floating hot pink garden rose. Others had shorter vases with pink crushed class and a small tied bouquet of green hydrangea, hot pink garden roses, and green hypericum berries.
A few tables used centerpieces left over from the rehearsal dinner the night before. These were glass cubes with white flowers of tulips, roses, hydrangea, calla lilies and wax flower.
Meredith and Ty also purchased their personalized koozies from us. One side was imprinted with a silver monogrammed “B” while the second side had their names and the wedding date and location.
Willow Point Golf and Country Club provided the food and we are sure it was amazing. They always have such a nice presentation and their staff is absolutely phenomenal.
The cakes were brought in from Olexa’s Café, Cakes, and Catering (Birmingham). The bride’s cake was an ivory buttercream cake with a stucco finish, and it was decorated with hot pink rose petals.
The groom’s cake was decorated with sugared fruit, and we’re a little jealous that we didn’t get a slice!
Meredith, you were such a pleasure to work with, and we thank you for giving us to opportunity to help you design such a beautiful day. Congratulations to you both!
