Amazing florists Stacy K Floral rise to the challenge again with this natural and beautiful wedding display.
We always love a challenge when it is proposed to us…. It fuels our creativity and ingenuity. For instance, we were commissioned to create the floral for an event where the couple wanted to have a natural yet sleek and elegant feel for their wedding. Thus the focus was put upon the unique texture of the birch tree.
Of course there was nothing structurally available to purchase (that we could find) that would meet the expectations of the look the couple wanted… thus we set out to build it for them. Searching high and low, we finally were able to find access to the perfect birch tree logs! Not too thin, uniform in shape, and straight as nature could make them.
Once we had selected the perfect logs, we then started the meticulous process of building. We set to work fixing brackets to the tops, fitting metal bases to keep the structure level, connecting all the pieces as not to put too much strain on all of the points; and finally we had a base structure to work with! However, we still weren’t complete. This natural 8’ by 8’ square needed some glamorous finishing touches.
We attached a luminous fabric that was custom sewn to the top, creating the canopy. Hand strung fresh floral buds and connected glass chandelier crystals to the ends, strategically placing them interspersed between hanging candles and crystal garlands. We created beautiful focal points at the corners of the structure, interworking natural branches and fresh floral all dripping with chandelier crystal accents, and…. Voila! We were able to turn these ordinary birch logs into an exquisite structure that met the couples’ every expectation.
