Kristin and David exchanged vows at New City Church and continued the celebration at Wrigley Mansion at their hilltop Phoenix wedding. I was honored to create the floral arrangements for their big day. The love they had for each other was evident, along with the love for their church body. Having held their ceremony in such a personal spot, the couple was surrounded by their community of friends and family at the place where they can cherish the commitment they made to each other every time they return.
Their choice of the historic Wrigley Mansion was beautiful inside and out. The antique interior of the venue provides for an experience not often found in daily life. The views looking out are quite a treat as well! During delivery and installation for Kristin and David’s wedding at Wrigley Mansion, I felt like I had taken a step back in time. The quirky characteristics of the aged building made the space as unique as the couple’s love story. Small doorways and creaky floors mark the building’s age.
Being able to look down on The Valley from the entrance of the mansion is a memory I’m sure each guest will keep with them as I surely will. It is opportunities like these that remind me of the beauty Phoenix holds. I am also reminded of how grateful I am to get to do what I do, discovering more of this great city while bringing flowers to those in love on the best day of their lives!
Kristin’s chosen color palette of neutrals with hints of soft pink is a spectrum I so enjoy working with. I think this particular combination can lead to some lovely results. I have a blast choosing flowers for arrangements with a subtle secondary color in a neutral palette. Depending on the desired mood and theme of the wedding, a couple’s choice may appropriately call for a timeless natural palette. When the occasion is right however, adding a soft secondary color can make for a pop of fun.
I am always a fan of greenery, and Kristin and David’s wedding was no exception to the feature. Their arch displayed an asymmetrical greenery installation of eucalyptus and draped fabric. Framing the “I Do’s” were floor arrangements that featured soft pink garden roses, greenery and allium. The pink flowers allowed for Kristin’s stunning white sweetheart neckline dress to stand out even more.
One of my favorite points about each wedding are the special details the couples pour their effort into making perfect, so the day is all their own. Kristin requested an “H” of rose petals in the center of the aisle representing the first letter of the last name she was to share with David. Being able to have brought this detail to life for Kristin was a treat.
I am so thankful to have been able to be a part of Kristin and David’s wedding day. It was a beautiful celebration of personal touches and amazing Phoenix views. Wishes for a lifetime of love to the couple!
