(Above) It’s almost magical, being at the center of an adventure that’s just beginning, so it’s fitting to mark the occasion with a circle, a symbol of wholeness and eternity. This circular backdrop by Artemisia Studios includes pampas grasses, roses, eucalyptus, olive branches and Italian ruscus. The dramatic structure is set off with elegantly nonchalant groupings of fresh flowers.

(Below) Brightening the day a little more: this stunning bouquet from Petals & Beans including creamy quicksand roses and butterfly ranunculus, punctuated with passionate bursts of deep red, burgundy and pink anthurium and dahlias. Dried pampas grasses, white pieris bud heather and white genestra provide texture, all tied up with a fluttering fuchsia ribbon from Tono & Co.

(Above) Warm tones provide friendly flair in this casually chic tablescape. A centerpiece from Sadie’s Couture Floral includes golden butterfly ranunculus, dainty leucadendron, garden roses and seeded eucalyptus.
A flamboyant king protea and feathery dried pampas grass fit right in with the delightfully boho table setting from Après Party Event Décor & Tent Rental and menu cards from Champagne Press.

(Below) A dramatic hanging installation makes a striking contrast to the laid-back, make-yourself-at-home vibe, courtesy of Collected and Co. Studio C Floral creates this unusual floral piece with moss branches, red hanging amaranthus, spider grevillea, leucadendron and pampas grass, with a take-flight exuberance—a symbol of your new life about to take off.

(Above) Every woman is a queen on her wedding day, and this winsome floral headpiece is the perfect crown. Using pampas grass as a base and other dried elements including fern, bunny tail and bleached ruscus, Studio Fleurette adds butterfly ranunculus, statice, astrantia and pieris japonica to finish the dainty accessory.

(Below) Add to all the warm feelings with the warm tones of these gorgeous blossoms from Studio Emme at the “petal bar.” Strewing a cone full of flower petals on the departing bride and groom is a delightful way to wish them luck. Adorning the petal bar, styled by Pink Peony Weddings & Events, are florals in cozy peach and pink tones, including pincushion protea and its showy brother, the pink king protea, mauve snapdragons, caramel spray roses, baby eucalyptus, pieris bud heather and pampas grass.
