Every now and then Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market has a wedding where we would feature every single photo on the blog if we could. Kierstyn and David’s wedding at St. Mark’s Catholic Church and Ross Bridge Resort wedding reception is one of them.
We knew from the first meeting with Kierstyn and her mom, Claudia, that the wedding would be gorgeous. Birmingham wedding photographer Allison Lewis Photography captured the day beautifully and we are always grateful to work with her.
Kierstyn worked with designer Alan Townsend to create a lush, opulent look including soft tones of white, cream, and blush.
Kierstyn’s bridal bouquet included white, cream, and blush tones. The stems were finished with ivory satin ribbon.
Kierstyn’s bouquet was made up of white peonies, vendela roses, white and blush ranunculus, Carla Romantica spray roses, Juliet spray roses, and white hydrangea.
Kierstyn’s bridesmaid’s dresses blended beautifully with a soft palette of flowers. Designer Alan used white hydrangea, cool water roses, pink majolica spray roses, Sahara roses, and fresh stems of lavender. The bouquets were wrapped in a deep charcoal ribbon.
The flower girl, possibly the cutest we’ve ever seen, wore a hair wreath of cream and pink spray roses. She also carried a pomander ball made up of white majolica spray roses, soft pink spray roses, and white hydrangea.
Kierstyn chose a white ranunculus for David’s wedding boutonniere. We always love incorporating something specific to the bridal bouquet. The mothers carried tussie mussies of white hydrangea and soft pink roses.

For the family pew marker’s we tied on clutch bouquets of white hydrangea, Sahara roses, soft pink spray roses, and white majolica spray roses with soft grey ribbon. We then alternated pew markers with single blooms of white hydrangea.
For the altar flowers we made two large arrangements of mainly white flowers such as white hydrangea, white stock, Sahara roses, white dendrobium orchids, spirea, foxtail, white peonies, oriental lilies, and white snapdragons.
Kierstyn absolutely beamed as she walked down the aisle at her St. Mark’s wedding.
The newly pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Viviano are all smiles immediately after their Birmingham, Alabama wedding.
Kierstyn and David’s Ross Bridge wedding was beautiful, if we do say so ourselves. We love this overall photo from Birmingham wedding photographer Allison Lewis Photography of their ballroom wedding.
One of our favorite things about this Ross Bridge wedding reception was the component table arrangement that welcomed guests in the foyer. Glass cylinders of varying heights were used with multiple blooms of the flowers used in all of the flower arrangements.
For the component flower arrangement blooms of foxtail, cool water roses, white ranunculus, soft pink spray roses, sahara roses, white dendrobium orchids, white peonies, lavender, white stock, and white hydrangea were used in glass cylinder vases.
We used pewter table linens with blush ties for the hi-boy tables. Glass bubble bowls with a floating Sahara rose were used for a centerpiece along with votive candles for a romantic touch.
A single Sahara rose floated in a glass bubble bowl for Kierstyn and David’s hi-boy table arrangements at their Ross Bridge Resort wedding.
Each guest table was draped in a pewter pintuck linen. Silver chiavari chairs were brought in from Event Rentals Unlimited in Birmingham, Alabama.
Two different centerpieces were used at Kierstyn’s wedding. Look one incorporated white hydrangea, soft pink spray roses, stems of fresh lavender, cool water roses, Sahara roses, and white stock in a simple round glass vase.
For centerpiece look number two we used low mounded arrangements of the same wedding flowers to elongate the square guest tables.
The bride’s cake was a gorgeous four tier white cake with packed flowers between each layer. Kierstyn and David also displayed wedding photos from their parent’s weddings — what a cute idea!
The flowers between each layer of Kierstyn’s cake included soft pink majolica spray roses and lavender and white spray roses.
Congratulations to Kierstyn and David! We were thrilled to have been a part of their wedding day and wish them the best of luck in their marriage.
