We first met Brittany and Bob when they began planning their fall wedding at Forbes Farm on St. Simons Island. Their Forbes Farm wedding was to be filled with rich fall colors and be set amongst the most beautiful St. Simons Island backdrop. It was truly the perfect southern venue for a one-of-a-kind day. 

Floral Design Details

For their floral design, Brittany wanted to embrace the rich and romantic colors of fall with pops of light blue throughout. With this floral design, we tried to emphasize the flowing movement of the blooms. From the scaling florals on the wedding cake to the various lengths of buds used in the floral arch, it was as if the flowers were meant to be there.

Saint Simons Island Wedding Ceremony

Our favorite part of this wedding was the aisle design. The bride trusted us to work our magic on designing low meadow aisle arrangements using a technique called color blocking. Color blocking is when we use clusters of the same color and contrast them again with an alternate color to create a bold look. By doing so, the flowers feel more natural, and they look as if they would appear in nature in clusters of lovely groupings. We loved how it turned out! 

Forbes Farm Wedding Reception 

Inside the ballroom, wood and white accents were selected to complement the space’s wood beams and white walls. We opted for mixed table designs, which included three different looks that flowed seamlessly together. The tables with rose-colored velvet linens had a sage green taper candle and a singular floral centerpiece in the middle. The tables with the ivory linens had pewter-colored pillar candles and clusters of bud vases. While the long wood table featured low-lying arrangements on each end, groups of blush taper candles and lush long floral arrangements aligned the table. Each table’s design was unique, yet they all tied together beautifully!

We love it when our clients trust us to create a one-of-a-kind floral design, and Brittany and Bob allowed just that! The uniqueness of the color-blocked floral arrangements in their ceremony not only looked breathtaking but was fun to design! If you are looking for a floral designer to work with you and create an exquisite floral display for your wedding, we’d love to chat with you!
