Kelsey + Matt’s flowery modern wedding at the North Carolina Botanical gardens in Chapel Hill, North Carolina was certainly a design highlight of the year for our team. When we suggested creating a ten by ten curtain of floating flowers for the ceremony, they were totally on board! We were excited for this idea because it didn’t block the view of the botanical gardens but added pops of bright fall florals to the ceremony.
Overall their inspiration was very modern and minimalist, the goal was to accentuate the natural beauty and local flora of the gardens juxtaposed with clean lines and bright whites in the reception space.
We were truly obsessed with Kelsey’s dress, it is not every day you see such a unique dress with it’s cloudy blue gray chiffon skirt. We selected ribbons for her bouquet which would compliment the skirt, introduce some more color, but not compete with the vibrant rainbow of flowers.
Gotta shout out our design team on-site for this wedding, Kaitlin + Signe, who made sure the flower curtain worked perfectly even with some last minute problem solving. There is nothing that can’t be solved with a quick trip to Lowes, some gaff tape, and bungees!
