Camy and Cliff- July 18, 2009

What a fun wedding! It is our absolute favorite thing when a bride isn't afraid to use a little color and play with her flower selection. Camy was a blast to work with because she was so open to being creative and the results were amazing.

Camy and Cliff were married at Brentwood Country Club, which was also the location of the reception. The colors were ivory and black, yet the bride asked for lots of color in the bouquets with beautiful pinks, purples, greens, blues, etc. The bridesmaids carried bouquets with orange snapdragons, purple lisianthus, hot pink gerbera daisies, yellow Peruvian lilies, Kermit button pompoms, bupleurum, and lavender dahlias. Camy's bouquet had white dahlias, white stock, white Asiatic lilies, gloriosa lilies, purple lisianthus, orange freesia, ivory hydrangea, and Kermit button pompoms.

The yummy looking cake was decorated with pink, red, and orange gerbera daisies. Very simple, yet still beautiful.

It was our honor to be a part of this wedding. Congratulations, Camy and Cliff! Best of wishes!

Kristin and Colton- July 11, 2009

There is nothing more romantic than a couple of childhood sweethearts. Friends since the 8th grade, Kristin and Colton are the quintessential All-American couple. Every one at the wedding remarked that she looked just like a Barbie doll and he was her Ken.

Colton joined the US Army as a senior in high school and serves in an infantry stationed at Fort Riley in Kansas. The wedding took place a couple months before Colton was being deployed to Iraq to allow this very much in love couple the opportunity to enjoy married life.

The two celebrated their nuptials at Monell's at Historic Lillie Belle's in Downtown Franklin and the memories of the day were captured by Evin Photography. Monell's is breathtakingly beautiful, with an outdoor wedding gazebo surrounded by lush gardens. The setting looks like it taken right out of a storybook and every girl's dream for her wedding.

The wedding colors were Tiffany Blue and chocolate brown, which added to the sophisticated elegance of this wedding. Kristin's bridesmaids wore the cutest strapless chocolate brown dresses and carried bouquets of white gerbera daisies wrapped with Tiffany Blue ribbon.

Kristin walked down the aisle carrying a stunning combination of white gerbera daisies with sparkling rhinestones in the center and stephanotis blossoms with pearls in their center.

And, let's not forget the cakes. Oh, the cakes were jaw droppingly delicious looking and were from Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca.

Colton's Groom's cake was in the shape of a military issued gun and rested on a table of camouflage. It was truly unique and also done by Rebecca at Wedding Cake Design.

It definitely was our pleasure to design the flowers for Kristin and Colton. We wish them years of happiness in their new life together.

Thanks guys for letting us be there with you on your special day!

Michelle and Michael- June 13, 2009

There is nothing more exciting than getting to do wedding flowers for one of your favorite couples. We have worked with Michelle and Michael on several weddings as they are the owners of Lamberth Photography (now Mahalo Photography). Being able to see them in front of the lens and prepare for their special day was so exciting. The couple was photographed by Dara Harris of Dara Harris Photography and the results were absolutely stunning.

The couple exchanged vows in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. They could not have asked for a more perfect summer day. It was definitely summer in Tennessee (very hot) and very beautiful.

Michelle carried a bouquet of blue,violet, and white hydrangeas, lisianthus, and green cymbidium orchids. It was a replica of one that Michelle found on and fell in love with. The results were pretty looked so similar and we were happy to give Michelle her dream bouquet.

After celebrating their union, the couple took off to honeymoon in Hawaii. It was true paradise for this photography couple and even inspired the name for their new company, Mahalo Photography.

We wish them a lifetime of happiness and can't wait to work with them again!

Clover and Emerson- May 9, 2009

We can't say enough good things about the wedding of Clover and Emerson. An artist and a med student...apparently the recipe for an amazingly fun couple and even better wedding.

Before we even get into the details of the nuptuals, we have to say how much we love Zach and Jody of Gray Photography. They are absolutely the best, but we don't need to tell you...the pictures do all the talking. The. Absolute. Best.

The two exchanged vows at West End United Methodist Church the day before Mother's Day and could not have asked for better weather. It was originally suppose to rain, but it held them perfect weather.

The bride carried a bouquet of white hydrangea and white California garden roses. And her seven attendants carried bouquets of white hydrangea.

We left our mark on the groom as well, with a single calla lily boutonniere.

After the ceremony, the Bride, Groom, and all of their guests traveled to the beautifully exquisite Hermitage Hotel for the reception. You couldn't ask for a more romantic setting. The room was adorned with candles everywhere casting an elegant glow on all of the tall cylinders of Granny Smith Apples and vases of California garden roses.

And the cake? Stunning! Dulce Desserts did an amazing job!

We had an absolute blast and were thrilled to be a part of this wedding. We can't help but think that our flowers made the evening (yep, shameless self promotion).

We wish Clover and Emerson nothing but the best! Thank you again for letting us being a part of your day!

Anne and Ed- May 2, 2009

It was the bride's love for gardening that inspired this colorful wedding, highlighted with beautiful periwinkles and vivid corals.

The marriage of Anne and Ed took place in early May. The two exchanged vows at Franklin Cumberland Presbyterian Church and they celebrated with a beautiful outside reception held at the family home.

Anne was absolutely radiating, as she carried a bouquet of blue hydrangeas and deep coral roses. It was a joy to be a part of their special day.

Rachel and Eli- April 18, 2009

It was clear after our first meeting with Rachel that this was going to be a fun wedding to be a part of. Rachel is absolutely the coolest girl with a very artistic sense, so the we knew the wedding would be nothing less than a blast.

Married at the Cool Springs House in Brentwood, Tennessee the wedding and reception took on a picnic style theme on the perfect spring day. There were handmade quilts everywhere and guests enjoyed fresh squeezed lemonade and chicken salad sandwiches from Merridee's (our favorite place in Franklin). Plus, there was an adorable cupcake tower from none other than Curious Gourmet Cupcake Cafe.

Rachel carried a beautifully unique bouquet that complimented the purple and green theme. It included white and green hydrangeas, green hypericum berries, purple moon carnations, purple anemones, and purple and white lisianthus.

It definitely was a fun wedding to be a part of and we wish Rachel and Eli nothing but the best!

Danielle and Jeremy- January 17, 2009

This wedding truly was a labor of love. We met Danielle and her mom our first day at David's Bridal in Franklin, where we serve as a preferred vendor. Bonnie Colleen, our Design Coordinator, and Danielle's mom quickly formed a great friendship and worked in tandem to help Danielle plan her special day. With Danielle's mom being out of state, Bonnie served as the wedding planner for Danielle and Jeremy.

For memories to last a lifetime, the entire day was documented by Lamberth Photography.

After months of planning, the big day had arrived. It was what felt like the coldest day of the year, but the temperature virtually went unnoticed as the love that this beautiful couple had for one another could be felt in the air.

The two were married at First United Methodist Church in historic downtown Franklin. And, Danielle walked down the aisle carrying a bouquet of white lilies and blue delphinium. She was absolutely stunning!

After the ceremony, family and friends continued the celebration at the reception held at Mere Bulles Restaurant where they enjoyed a to die for cake from The Cake Lady.

As Danielle and Jeremy creep closer to their one year anniversary, they are still as in love as ever. They also have exciting news to announce. Danielle, a talented vocalist, has begun performing regularly. She's been the wedding singer at two of our weddings to date...and we anticipate many more in the future. Check her out:

Congratulations, Danielle and Jeremy! Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day!

Emi and Michael- November 28, 2008

The day after Thanksgiving set the stage for the beautiful union of Emi and Michael. In all of our years seeing couples join together, we are at a loss for a more beautifully perfect couple than these two.

Married at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Franklin, Tennessee with the reception held at The Hermitage Hotel, the entire day was breathtakingly beautiful.

Emi carried a bouquet of white tulips, white stock, mango calla lilies, ivory spray, California garden roses, hypericum berries, and roses.

The bridesmaids' bouquets were just as beautiful, made up of mango calla lilies, lily grass, and hypericum berries.

The cake looked to die for delicious and was designed by Jo's Cakes and Catering.

And the stunning photographs for the entire wedding were taken by our dear friends, Peter and Whitney, at Dove Wedding Photography.

Crystal and William- October 18, 2008

Our first out of two weddings on the beautiful October afternoon could not have been more perfect.

Although they grew up in what would seem like polar opposite environments, with Crystal being from Canada and William being from California, they joined together in perfect harmony. Crystal looked absolutely stunning and carried a bouquet of Black Magic and Orange Unique roses.

During both the ceremony and the reception, Crystal's violin and fiddle students from Vanderbilt University serenaded guests. It truly was an event overflowing with love and happiness, where everyone close to the couple was involved- including their dog, Mandy, who greeted guests with an array of flowers adorning her collar.

Meeting Crystal just one month before her ceremony at the Love is in the Air Bridal Fair at the Cool Springs Galleria was a blessing for both of her and Belles Fleurs. We all were able to relish in the beauty of the day, the flowers, and the love.

Carla and Brian- October 18, 2008

What do you get when you combine the perfect October day and an an outdoor wedding? Perfection.

Carla and Brian exchanged vows at the bride's home in Nashville and the results were simply stunning. See for yourself...

The bride's bouquet was a beautiful mixture of antique green hydrangeas, pink roses, and miniature calla lilies.

Much like the bride's bouquet, the three bridesmaids dressed all in black carried bouquets of big antique green hydrangeas and pink roses.

It truly was a beautiful wedding. We were happy to be a part of Carla and Brian's big day.
