Sarah and Ben- November 7, 2009

We put our whole heart into each wedding we do, but there are some weddings that go beyond. It is when we know the bride or groom that makes creating for the wedding that much more special. We give our heart and soul to see to it that everything is just perfect. This was definitely the case with Sarah and Ben's wedding back in November.

Ben holds a special place in our heart, as he was the web designer for the Belles Fleurs site and we couldn't be more grateful for the amazing work he did. Additionally, Bonnie Colleen, our Design Coordinator, is a family friend of Ben's and has known him for years. Of Ben she said, "We've watched Ben grow into a wonderful man. He is talented, charming, and witty and it was our honor when he introduced us to his college sweetheart, Sarah."

Seeing these two together, you just know they were made for one another. They compliment one another in the perfect way and truly radiate happiness. Yep, we think they are a pretty awesome couple.

So, on a beautiful November day Sarah and Ben exchanged vows at the Riverview Courtyard in Nashville. This venue is absolutely breathtaking. It is chic and has stunning views of the river and downtown.

Complimenting the surroundings, Sarah and Ben chose a sophisticated color palette of blush pink and graphite grey which was stunning with ivory calla lilies and dendrobium orchids that had a natural blush pink to the centers.

Beautiful on any given day, Sarah was absolutely stunning on her wedding day. Her hair and makeup (as well as the hair and make up of the brides maids) was done by the uber cool Pink Mullet Salon.

Following the ceremony, the happy couple and all of their guests celebrated at Cellar One. If you haven't yet seen this place, check it out. It is an amazingly unique space that is just perfect for a reception.
It really the perfect day for this awesome couple to entering into marriage. They will have memories for a lifetime of the day...especially with the help of the talented Gavin Saha Photography.

We are so overwhelmingly happy for Sarah and Ben and wish them nothing but the best of luck in their life together. Thank for letting us be a part of your day!

Top Picks: Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca

We are back after a long hiatus. Hopefully everyone had an enjoyable holiday season. Here at Belles Fleurs, we definitely did! We had the privilege to work on some really exciting weddings over the holidays and we'll be sharing those with you shortly. But, you will have to stay tuned...

For now, we are going to introducing a new series: Top Picks.

We have the honor to work with some amazing vendors and have developed some great working relationships. We want the best for your wedding, so what better way to introduce you to our favorites than to blog about them? First up: Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca.

Wow, where do we even start? Rebecca Schreher of Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca has to be hands down one of our favorite vendors to work with. She is an absolute breath of fresh air...and her cakes? They are to die for.

We do have to tell on ourselves a little though...when Rebecca first contacted us over a year ago about meeting and possibly collaborating, we kindly explained that we already had two preferred cake vendors and didn't really need another. Rebecca may tell the story differently even though we are positive we were nothing but sweet and thankful for her inquiry. :) A few weeks later, Rebecca visited a wedding dress boutique that Belles Fleurs worked with exclusively and she left samples of her cakes. We may have devoured the equivalent of an entire sheet cake in one sitting. Her cakes are amazing! Needless to say, we emailed her and have been recommending her ever since.

Rebecca has over 15 years of baking experience and grew-up working in her family baking business in upstate New York. So, you could say baking is in her blood. She specializes in cakes with butter cream icing and says that her most popular cakes are white, chocolate, and marble. But, let's be honest...everything she makes is great!

We love Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca and know you will too!

Oh, and if the fabulousness of her cakes weren't enough to convince you...this might (Wedding Cake Design by Rebecca will be at the Nashville Premiere Bridal Show on January 17th):
