Romantic Ultraviolet Wedding | Barnsley Gardens Wedding | Georgia Wedding Florist
Barnsley Gardens in Georgia is an absolutely gorgeous venue! We were smitten from our first look. It was an absolute dream wedding day for Jackie and Ehren. We almost can't even put it into words.
I love these two so much and working with them was a wonderful experience! When asked about their wedding date, Jackie told us "My dad got sick a few weeks after we got engaged and I went back to Pittsburgh to be with him. He would say things like, "Please don't forget to tell me when the wedding is. I really want to be there." Ehren suggested we get married in the chapel of the hospice that Thanksgiving and I said that was ridiculous because I truly had hope that my dad would pull through as he always did. Sadly, he passed away a few weeks later and I kicked myself a lot for not getting married in that hospice chapel. So when it came time to picking a wedding date, getting married on my dad's birthday felt like the perfect way to honor him. And it was. :)
Ehren's mom lost her dad when she was young and his parents got married on her dad's birthday as well so it was a special way to connect everyone and was so meaningful to us. "
Cue ALL the tears right now. Doesn't it just give you the chills?!
The color palette played a huge role in all of the design choices. It had touches of the 2018 Pantone color of the year, Ultraviolet. As well as burgundy, fucshia, pink, lavender and gray. It was so incredible romantic and worked beautifully at the venue- with the surrounding greenery and historic ambiance (hello exposed brick).
Boutonnieres were created with Hellebores in white, a lovely deep, dusty burgundy tone and pink.
We carried the hellebores through into Jackie's bouquet, as well as Fritillaria (the cascading burgundy bloom), ranunculus (we used multiple varieties, include a new fav, butterfly ranunculus), garden roses, and peonies.
Arrangements for ceremony and reception were a mix of large and small pieces in their stunning color combination. We added lots of candles for romance. And the table numbers, paired with the scalloped edge plates were a beautifully contrasting texture with the soft linen & florals.
We can't forget to mention the chairs! Aren't these the most incredible choice?! The circular back white wood chairs were sturdy, yet modern and delicate. They made such a beautiful impact in the overall design- really pulling all the pieces together. They truly were perfect!
