Wedding Date: October 26, 2013
Location: McClain Lodge
Color Palette: muted vintage colors such as mauve, artichoke and nude pink
Style: Vintage Bohemian

What was you favorite part of the design process?

My favorite part of the design process was meeting with TULIP to look at fabric samples for the aisle runner! I loved the collection of patterns and textures she had available. From sequins to chiffon, I'll never forget all of the gorgeous options we had to choose from. I really thought she nailed the floral pattern we ended up using for the runner and felt it really brought the whole outdoor ceremony together!

What was the most memorable design element?

Besides the golden, antiqued candelabras placed on every table, I think my most memorable design element was the chandelier we rented from TULIP. This thing was gorgeous and dangled under the gazebo as we said our vows. I couldn't have imagined the ceremony without it.

What was the biggest challenge during the design process?

My mother had doubts on the fabric we chose for the aisle runner. She felt that it was too loud and needed to be more subtle, but seeing the previous work Lesley has done for brides, we put our trust in her 100% and it was one of the best decisions we made!

Why would you refer people to TULIP?

TULIP is so much more than flowers. It is the creative team behind the brand, the uniqueness they bring to weddings, and most importantly, the owner Lesley. We were so overwhelmed at times and would often reach out to Lesley for direction. She never failed to help us with every aspect of the wedding. She can see the bigger picture and will keep any bride on track throughout the process.

In three words… how would you describe your wedding?

Romantic, whimsical, bittersweet.

Thank you to Hunter of Three Nails Photography for capturing the day and sharing these images!

Meagan + Collin

April 24, 2013

I have been waiting forever to post these images! Meagan and Collin got married on Meagan's family property in Canton, MS.  It was such a perfect setting for a beautiful Southern wedding.  Adam + Alli did an amazing job capturing the day that Shanna Lumpkin and her team orchestrated.  We were thrilled to be a part of it!  Enjoy!

 


Elevated centerpieces were composed of white hydrangea + pieris buds + snowberry + amnesia roses + white stock + sahara roses.

We accented each table with vintage mirrored trays + cut glass + mercury glass + succulents.





Meagan's bouquet was composed of white garden roses + camellia foliage. 

We wrapped it in lace and completed it with family heirlooms for a personal touch.




Boutonnieres of fern curls + peiris buds + silver brunia + velvet leaves wrapped in lace

















Pretty trio of cakes the Cake Diva accented with our fresh flowers





The Happy Bride and Groom!

There was a killer list of vendors for this wedding.  Thank you to Meagan and her family for including us on their special day, and thank you Shanna Lumpkin for putting together such an amazing team!

Season + Jimmy: Chicago, IL

February 14, 2013
Season and Jimmy got married last July in the backyard of Jimmy's parents' home in Barrington, IL.  I went to high school with both of them and we ended up re-connecting during a visit to my hometown and an intense game of bowling with a group of old friends.  Season and I got to talking and she mentioned how much she loved my work and really wished I could do her wedding flowers.  With me being seven hundred miles away in Jackson, MS...  Season didn't even consider TULIP as an option for her wedding.  I of course jumped at the chance to bring my florals back to Chicago and I told Season I would LOVE to make the trip to do her flowers.  With several long distance meetings we made this thing happen! 

Season and Jimmy had a wedding filled with beautiful pops of color, playful details, and a whole lot of love!  Season really poured her heart into the wedding and she did an amazing job with all of the details.  The day was captured perfectly by the super talented Gina Christine Photography 


 













































NYC with the Chapel Designers 2012

December 01, 2012
I can’t believe it has taken me nine months to blog this amazing trip.  I guess with a little guy at home, two dogs, a husband, and a booming business time gets away from you.  I am quickly approaching my next trip to NYC with this amazing group of designers and I can't wait.  

Last March, I took a trip to NYC to meet up with the Chapel Designers.  This is a group of talented, driven, accomplished floral designers and event stylist led by the amazing Holly Chapple.   I feel so lucky to be a part of this group.

These four days were packed full of so many unforgettable experiences.  Here are a few of many highlights from the trip....

A tour of Martha Stewarts studio was at the top of my list. Her prop room is insane! I could have sent hours in there. I really wish I broke the rules and took a few pictures.

Floral class at New York Flower School with Ariella Chezar......  a designer I have adored for years.

Cocktail party and floral demonstration at Matthew Robinson’s beautiful studio located in Chelsea.  Matthew is so down to earth and such a great host.  He is also crazy talented.

A heart felt, VERY real conversation with designer extraordinaire David Beam.  He is so awesome!  Looking forward to designing with him in March, thanks to Holly. 

A full day of open conversation and education with designer Tara Guerard of Soiree.  

A beautiful lunch at La Grenouille, a French Bistro known for their beautiful fresh flowers.

Touring the floral markets and supply wholesalers on 28th street. Blocks and blocks of AMAZING finds.  This was especially a treat since we have nothing like this in Jackson.  Makes me miss living in a big city.

I have at least a dozen more that I could name, but I need to save some room for pictures.  Enjoy!

 

 

A special thanks to Holly Chapple for all of your hard work putting this together!  I can't wait for March 2013!!  XOXO

Frank Turns One!

July 23, 2012

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness!! I cannot believe our little man is already a year old. This past year has gone by so fast. It seems like just yesterday I was in the middle of wedding season nine months pregnant. I never thought I would get through that season let alone my first year as a new Mother.

Frank has brought so much into our lives. Sleepless nights, thousands of dirty diapers, a messy house, baby contraptions that clash with our design style, toys everywhere, tears, non-stop pumping, and frustration to name a few. But more than anything he has brought us joy, laughter, smiles, happiness and a kind love that we have never felt before. I will gladly take all of the difficult things that go along with being a parent. This past year has been the hardest one of my life (more so than I expected… props to parents everywhere!), but it has also been the best and the most rewarding. I can’t imagine a life without our little monster.

So… to celebrate Frank’s very first year of life, Marty and I decided to throw him a party! And of course it had to be the best party, complete with fun patterns, cool colors, three cakes (yes, three!), a Frank Bar, balloons, and a few flowers of course.

When coming up with a concept for the party I knew I wanted to incorporate the cute little bow tie he wore in his very first photo shoot. He always looked dapper in it and I knew he would be wearing it on his birthday. I also wanted to incorporate patterns and textiles since they are an important element to my design style. I found some great patterns in our chosen color palette that we used to make table runners, backdrops, and pillows to place around the house. Beverly also re-created the patterns to use as the envelope liner for our invites along with all of the print work. She also designed a “Frank Logo” that was used throughout the party on things such as the to-go cake boxes, the CD covers, invitations, and the goodie bags. We decided to throw some balloons and cute monsters in there for fun! For the flowers, I really wanted to keep it minimal. White gerberas with a black center were placed in green and blue bottle throughout the house. 

A special Thank you to our talented friends Adam and Allison Hudson for capturing our special day! We are so grateful to have had you guys there. Here a few of our favorite pictures from the day:

Below are a few more fun details from the day:

Party fun: The Frank Quiz. We left “Frank Facts” (clues) throughout the house so guests could find answers to their “Frank Quiz”. The winner got a vase filled with pretty flowers.

Party Food: The Frank Bar. Guest chose between Frank Franks (beef), Bird Franks (chicken), and Spicy Franks (Andouille) and topped them with their favorite toppings.

Adult Party Favor: Frank’s Favorite Tunes. A CD complied of music that we all listened throughout the year. It included the song that played as he was delivered. I cry every time I hear it!

Kids Party Favor: Goodie Bags. The bags included bubbles, crayons, monster stickers, goofy sunglasses, and candy.

Little Monster Workshop: Beverly drew and printed out monsters that the kids colored at the “Little Monster Workshop”. We now have the pictures displayed in his playroom.

Cake: Maria’s cakes are always so amazing. They taste as good as they look, and they always look so good! I asked her to keep the design minimal and I requested a bowtie on top of the main cake. They looked so perfect displayed on a few of my white cake stands. With three cakes, we obviously had leftovers so we sent them home in boxes accented with Frank’s adorable logo.

July 02, 2012

Happy 4th of July to all of our wonderful friends, vendors, and clients. Here is a little red, white, and blue goodness for the holiday. 

A couple weeks ago we styled and designed flowers for the awesomely-cute couple, Anna and Michael, at the Mississippi Craft Center. From the invitations to the candy bar, we did it all! She was such a laid back, fun bride. I absolutely adored working with her. And of course our images from the day are AMAZING! Thank you so much Adam + Alli.... we love you! By the way..... how perfect was that red door for the pics? Amazing right?

Erin + Christopher

June 29, 2012

So when Adam and Alli from Adam + Alli Photography approached us with a favor, we knew we couldn't turn it down. Very good friends of the photographers were planning a DIY wedding and had been growing their own flowers for it. Since the weather in Mississippi is, well um, unpredictable (to put it kindly), the flowers didn't quite make it. When we were asked how we could help, Lesley decided we would sell them the flowers at cost and show them how to make the bouquets and boutonnieres.

Erin, with the help of family and friends, learned how to do her own wedding flowers at TULIP's studio. With the exception of the bridal bouquet (designed by Lesley), the girls made everything else with some guidance along the way. They were such a precious bunch of ladies, who were so grateful for the opportunity. The flowers were perfect for Erin and her simple, but thoughtful, wedding and TULIP was honored to be a part of it.

 


 

Ashley + Jared

June 22, 2012
I’m going to keep this post short and simple since it really is all about the beautiful images right? Anyway…. Ashley was such a fun, cute bride to work with. She is a photographer (check her work out at hellobeautifulphotography.com) and she also has an adorable Etsy shop called Peach Linen. She is obviously creative and has good taste. She is also beyond beautiful… a very photogenic lady! 

Ashley and Jared’s wedding was held outside at Castle Hill Pavilion in Florence, Mississippi. From what I remember the sun was shining that day, and the weather was amazing. The ceremony and reception were filled with beautiful flowers in a palette of blush, peach, yellow, pink, and blue. She was looking for a playful, yet romantic look with a lot of personal touches and thoughtful details. Here are a few images of our favorite moments and details of the day. A special “thank you” to Rebecca Long for her talent and lovely images!


Sneak Peek

May 11, 2012
This wedding was so much fun. Chris and Rachel were the most laid back couple--EVER. With a last minute ceremony location change due to the rain, the couple had both the ceremony and the reception in the same spot. Not even once did Chris and Rachel sweat the decision, they just wanted to get married and have fun doing it. Here are a few images I took the day of the wedding of all our fun flowers we were able to use. Stay tuned for more details of Chris and Rachel's wedding!-Beverly

 

 

Inspiration Shoot with Three Nails Photography

May 01, 2012

When Hunter and Brittany of Three Nails Photography approached us in the Fall to be a part of an inspiration shoot, we absolutely did not hesitate! After working with them on THIS WEDDING, we knew that it was quite an honor to be involved. Not only was Three Nails Photography taking photos the day of the shoot, they were conducting a photography workshop for photographers nation wide--read about it here!

Enjoy our flowers and "live table scape" (as we like to call it) in this whimsical, Bohemian shoot! Thanks Brittany and Hunter for letting us be a part of such a beautiful shoot!

Spring Floral Photo Shoot

April 26, 2012
Last week we got a fresh floral shipment in from one of our very new flower vendors. I was so excited to be receiving product from a new company, but I was also a little nervous. Working with a new vendor for the first time, you never really know what to expect until you open up that box. We are always in search of the best quality and most unique blooms, so we have to take the risk and branch out. It's part of what sets TULIP apart from other floral designers in this area, so it's very important to us...plus, it's really exciting! When the boxes arrived, I did a little dance. I'm pretty sure my FedEx guy thinks I am nuts. I ran outside to greet him, did my dance of excitement, and then I immediately ripped open those boxes. I was thrilled! The product was beautifully packed (this is important...it shows that this vendor really cares about my flowers!), exactly what I wanted, and it was all up to TULIP's standard of quality. Beverly and I were so happy we decided to do an impromptu photo shoot of our beautiful blooms at the new studio.
 
Here is a sampling of  the floral goodness at TULIP...

 

 

Flower School in New York

March 21, 2012

While in New York last week on a trip with the Chapel Designers (the most amazing group of women...I will blog more about them later!), I took a class with one of my floral crushes, Ariella Chezar. It was a class focusing on hand tied wedding bouquets. Her style is very rooted in nature, romantic, loose, and all about color balance and texture. I am in love with the bouquet that I created in her class. Oh, how I miss it so! I started with a base of velvety dusty miller and pink wax flower and then I added majolica spray roses, quick sand roses (a beige rose with a lavender undertone that opens beautifully and is super pretty!) lavender parrot tulips, white ranunculus, lavender ranunculus, white anemones, and amazing bi-color pink carnations. I completed the look with passion flower vine and jasmine vine woven into the bouquet as well as trailing to create a loose, natural look. This bouquet smelled so unbelievably wonderful!!

These are pics that I took, so they are not the best.  The bouquet was ten times prettier in person.
 


 

Happy Spring!

March 08, 2012

Spring is in the air and it's definitely in the flower markets. This is my favorite time of year for flowers. With so many luscious, fragrant blooms available how could it not be? We whipped up this fresh, spring infused floral piece for a lucky birthday girl today. This arrangement is composed of creamy white hydrangea, lavender hyacinth (this smells SO good by the way!), white tulips, mini green hydrangea, Sarah B. peonies. 

Like what you see? Visit our website or call TULIP and place an order. You deserve a little bit of Spring happy in your house too! 

Favorite Spring blooms: sweet pea + anemones+ quince + hyacinth + poppies + astilbe + daffodils + parrot tulips +pieris japonica + muscari + ranunculus + narcissus + peonies (the best ones come later in Spring!) Favorite Spring Colors: lavender + blush pink + chartreuse green + cornflower blue + white + peach + yellow Happy Spring everyone!

Too Pretty to Forget

February 21, 2012

I can't believe I forgot to post these pictures. This was a wedding we did back in the Fall. Lesley usually likes me to bring my camera along to capture a few of our details that may be overlooked by wedding photographers. If you are a vendor of any sort, you know exactly where I am coming from. We spend hours and hours preparing and creating for a wedding, and sometimes we just don't have the photos to show for it. We understand flowers are not THE most important thing going on that day, but we are very proud of what we do, and we love having the photos to show for it. Here are a few shots I took of a wedding that was held at Luckett Lodge in Brandon, MS. We had a lot of fun with textures and modern containers to balance out the rustic venue in which they were placed. I especially love the last photo where we did groupings of different flowers in their individual containers. Enjoy! -Beverly



Flower Market

February 15, 2012

Have you ever wondered how floral designers get their hands on such beautiful flowers?? Well, the answer is actually simple! We go to market. I decided I wanted our readers to have an inside scoop on what a flower market looks like for us in Jackson, MS. This particular day I brought my camera along to capture a few shots. It's actually quite fun, and the employees are super nice. Enjoy! -Beverly


Valentine's Day 2012

January 23, 2012

Believe it or not, the one thing I miss most about my shop in Chicago is Valentine’s Day. Other designers may say I’m crazy, but I’m for real.  It is, hands down, the most exciting holiday of the year! This is the day where there would be a line out the shop, phone ringing off the hook, 14 hour work days, and laughter for hours while cleaning a couple thousand roses. For me, this holiday is always such a rush!  I absolutely love the madness that comes along with being a flower boutique owner and Valentine’s Day.  Even though I no longer have an everyday retail shop (weddings are our focus here at TULIP), I try to do a little bit on Valentine’s Day each year. This year I am excited to say we are launching our brand new ecommerce site! This is a place where Jackson peeps can come to our site, view our Valentine’s Day collection, pick out what they like, place and order online, and we will deliver it to that special someone on Valentine’s Day. Super easy right? These arrangements are not your typical, boring dozen roses with all that crazy, icky greenery and filler.  These arrangements were actually designed to impress and make your lady (or man) swoon over you. These are delicious treats made with love for your love. 

Our shop will be up and running and we will be ready to take orders starting February 1st. If you are a lady reading this post, do yourself a favor and send your man a little hint, hint.   

Here's a sneak peak of our offerings this year……

Modern Whimsy

January 04, 2012

So…… I’m pretty sure I say this a lot, but I absolutely adored working with this couple! Leslie and Jason are the kind of couple that florists and stylists dream of working with--a laid back bride with style and an architect groom who was willing to let go of visual details and completely trust us. Lesley and Jason basically handed TULIP the wedding and gave us complete creative control. In meeting with the couple it was pretty clear that Jason was drawn towards a more modern aesthetic, but he also wanted some character, and Leslie envisioned a more whimsical, DIY feel to the day. In one of the meetings they mentioned they wanted to incorporate a bike into the wedding somehow, so we did just that. We started with a bike and a color palette, and the wedding evolved from there! I worked with Mary Margaret Harper on designing an invitation that really set the tone for the entire day. To incorporate a modern, graphic element that would satisfy the groom’s style, we chose to bring a modern chevron print through textiles and print work. In the end, I was thrilled with the outcome. All of the elements and different design styles came together perfectly. I like to call it Modern Whimsy! 

Beverly, my partner in crime at TULIP, designed and executed an amazing backdrop for the cake table and groom’s pie table. Here's a little blurb from Bev on her crafty project:

From the get-go Lesley gave me full, creative freedom with the backdrops and made it very clear that this was MY project. Being my first project with TULIP, naturally I was a little hesitant. I kept feeling the urge to run every little detail by Lesley for her approval. After doing a sketch of each backdrop showcasing a very clear idea of what I wanted to build, I was able to move forward quickly. From the sketch process, I went out to purchase and gather materials. The Bride's cake table backdrop was completed in no time. Consisting of the perfect branch, string, ribbon, and dyed coffee filters, the backdrop was a perfect combination of whimsy and crafty. The Groom's pie table backdrop--on the other hand--was a little more difficult to complete. I created a frame of gathered sticks on a fabric-covered piece of plywood. I then printed multiple designs on paper to create the folded starbursts. I know that sounds simple, but THE FOLDING OF PAPER TOOK FOREVER! Lastly, I embellished the final product with lace-sewn pennant flags. Overall, I think we were all happy with the outcome!

A Wedding with FAN-tastic Details

December 29, 2011

I met Mary Margaret a couple years ago when she inquired about working for TULIP. Although we were not hiring at the time, we stayed in touch and ended up working on some really fun invitation/print work projects together. She is such a talented designer, and I absolutely adore her work. So...When she called to tell me she was engaged and wanted TULIP to do her flowers and collaborate on styling, I was obviously thrilled! I had SO much fun working on this wedding with her. The day was filled with elements of paper, wood, lace, muslin, burlap, succulents, garden roses, and mercury glass. An organic palette of green and ivory was accented with coral for a splash of color. It was the perfect combination of DIY details, organic accents, and a touch of romance. 

Rachel Brooks did such an amazing job capturing the love that day…and the details too!

Inspiration Shoot: A Mid-Century, Modern Wedding

December 20, 2011

About a month ago, a few of us creatives in the wedding industry decided we wanted to do an inspiration shoot that was not your "traditional southern wedding." In the South, it can be extremely easy for WEDDING AFTER WEDDING to be the SAME OLE SAME OLE. Here at TULIP, we are always searching to push the envelope in every aspect of event styling--from flowers, to linens, to print work, to dessert tables, to backdrops--you name it! We love when we get that creative bride that just rolls with the punches and gives us total, creative freedom. So here's a shoot we pulled together to show all our southern lovelies what we have up our sleeves! Enjoy our Mid-Century, Modern wedding:

 


A special thanks to all the vendors that made this fun little shoot possible.

Homespun Southern Wedding: The Dupree House

December 05, 2011
Sarah was one of those Brides I absolutely adored working with! She is an artist, so naturally she was creative and had clear ideas of what she wanted--yet trusted me to make the final decision on things. Me + creative, easy-going bride = happy Lesley and really pretty things! She wanted a homespun wedding with Southern charm and wanted to incorporate items of her own such as vintage books, wooden crates, and mason jars. We chose a romantic color palette of creamy white, soft peach, blush pink, and gray for the flowers and added in rustic elements such as wooden boxes, burlap, and tree stumps for a homespun feel. My favorite of the day were the baby’s breath bridesmaid bouquets...they looked amazing against the white bridesmaid gowns.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day from the amazingly talented Three Nails Photography...
