Brooke + Paul | Slidell, Louisiana

 

Brooke and Paul said their vows in the most magical swamp setting.The venue was surrounded by marshy terrain and wetlands, a South Louisiana dream. We loved creating what we kept calling "the nest". For us, it was a snapshot of the lush surroundings. We created a half-moon shape of palmetto, pampas grass, fern, and other native greenery for the couple's backdrop.

The reception was at the prettiest of venues. Patton's Catering is the historic Salmen-Fritchie House built in 1895. This venue is rich in history and is even included in National Register of Historic Places. For the reception, our focus was to bring the outside in. We created a collection of larger arrangements that were paired with smaller ones in vintage cloches of different sizes and shapes. Outside, we created two seating areas with Patton's stunning collection of vintage furniture coupled with our modern coffee and side table. And, of course, taper candles are always invited to the party.

Brooke and Paul's personal flowers were a diverse mix of greenery, air plants, and moss. We love the idea of the couple being able to have something for years to come and air plants are the perfect thing to keep as a reminder of their big day.

We had such an amazing time styling this couple's wedding. We wish them all the happiness in the world. Cheers!
