Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market absolutely loved working with Erin and her mother to create a beautiful concept for a summer wedding. Erin and Matt were married this past June at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Birmingham, Alabama.
One of our favorite photography duos, Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, captured the day and we’re always grateful to them for sharing their work! The day was expertly planned by Meghan Cease of M. Elizabeth Events.
Erin was a classic, stunningly gorgeous bride and carried a traditional handheld bouquet of white roses, hydrangea, scented geranium leaves, dusty miller, and fresh lavender. The stems were wrapped in a white satin ribbon and completed with white crystals.
Erin’s bridesmaids wore vibrant blue dresses and carried clutch bouquets of bold pastel flowers including Amsterdam and cool water roses, antique green hydrangea, green hypericum berry, dusty miller, rice flower, soft pink calla lilies, and fresh lavender.
Matt’s boutonniere was a single white mini calla lily with a backing of dusty miller and a sprig of rosemary.
Erin and Matt’s mothers each carried tussie mussies in traditional silver holders. The tussie mussies were made of antique green hydrangea, green hypericum berry, and Amsterdam roses.
The favorite flower of many Southern brides is hydrangea and we love to incorporate it anywhere we can. Antique green hydrangea is a hearty variety and holds up well for long periods of time. For Erin’s pew markers we used a single stem of antique green hydrangea.
Upon arrival at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church, guests were greeted by a large arrangement in bold colors. The flowers in the arrangement included Amsterdam and cool water roses, blue delphinium, a mixture of herbs, antique green hydrangea, green hypericum berry, peach stock, soft pink mini calla lilies, Bells of Ireland, pink snap dragons and fresh lavender.
Two large arrangements flanked the altar. These arrangements were composed of many of the same flowers used throughout the wedding.
The precious flower girl wore a halo of antique green hydrangea and soft pink spray roses. She also carried a pomander of the same blooms.
Ross Bridge Resort and Spa is one of our favorite wedding venues in Birmingham for many reasons. It’s natural beauty is one of the main ones.
Erin and her mother did a great job with details and incorporated the main wedding color, blue, into many different ways. These included William Arthur wedding invitations, koozies, menu cards, escort cards, etc.
We also love that the couple used their engagement photos to create a unique guest book for their guests to sign.
Guest table centerpieces alternated between low mounded arrangements of antique green hydrangea and taller arrangements of the same flower incorporated with silver candelabras.
Congratulations again to the happy couple and thank you for choosing Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market!
