The color combination of fuchsia and emerald green makes my heart sing oh-so-much, so you can imagine how excited I was to see this wedding from Michelle March and Sullivan Owen Floral & Event Design. The rich colors play off each other beautifully, and accent the couple’s romantic ceremony and reception more perfectly than we could imagine. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Joann and Nate!

From the bride, Joann: I envisioned a garden wedding with old world influences. The venue was my inspiration. I chose bridesmaid dresses that matched the lush greenery and palms. I saw the giant oak tree in the garden, and wanted to transform it into the backdrop of where we were to get married with Spanish moss and romantic florals.

Emerald green and fuchsia were our main colors. I think my head table really encompasses the look of our wedding. We used vintage lace runners on the rustic farm tables, mercury glass and rose gold candle votives and vases, and assorted Vintage candlesticks with taper candles. We had a Vintage postcard station for guests to sign instead of a guest book, which one of my bridesmaids gradually mailed to me throughout our first year of marriage. Used Grandma’s vintage bell collection – one on each table for guests to “ring the bell to see kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs.”

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try to have fun with your partner in making the plans. My husband is really into music so I let him take account for all things music related and he loved being able to contribute to the planning of our wedding day. I love florals and had so much fun being able to work with my florist to make my vision come true!
