Kathryn and Luke were married at the River Road Jasmine House in Irmo, South Carolina on Sunday May 25, 2014.

The bride carried a mixed of true yellow and pale yellow roses, white roses, and dusty miller. The ceremony was simply, yet fabulously, decorated with timeless Mason Jars used for the aisle pieces, filled with yellow alstroemeria, pale yellow roses, as well as bright yellow roses.  The arbor was built in with a similar mix of flowers- white stock, white snapdragons, white roses, brightly colored yellow roses, pale yellow roses, and yellow alstroemeria, as well as various greenery.

The beauty of the these unique, rustic, and antique gardens helped to decorate the rest of this bright, summer-welcoming wedding!


701 Whaley Wedding

31 January;  Author: admin

     Brie Pickens & Chris Huyck were married September 25, 2010 at Columbia College Chapel.
     Brie carried an all white bouquet with hydrangeas, orchids and a little pop of blue.  Her Bridesmaids carried green hydrangeas with white orchids.  Her altar pieces were made of green hydrangeas, bells of ireland, white asiatic lilies, white stock, white snapdragons, and blue delphinium whereas  the family rows were marked by green hydrangea kissing balls( Pomadors).
     The reception was at the always beautiful 701 Whaley where Chris with Gourmet-to-Go provided the eclectic mix of tapis style food.

     The show piece buffet arrangement was built on site around one of the grand columns in the center of the food area. Built 12 feet up with large bamboo as the base and the 7 foot across arrangement at the top of white lilies, green hydrangeas, tie leaves, green roses, green amaranthus and green orchids was a real show stopper!
     Blue fabric draped the stairs entrance with a floral accent made of white snapdragons, green hydrangeas, white stock and blue delphinium.  The combination of hi and low tables made of green hydrangeas, green roses, white lilies, blue delphinium, white snapdragons, white stock and curly willow tips, really finished the look.
     Millie Fort perpared her beautiful cake and it sat on a glass cake stand, bottom lit with floral accents and Craig Hewitt Photography captured the moments and memories.

Sarah Strauss & Brian Levin were married July 17, 2010 with a beautiful wedding at the Columbia Marriott in the Capital Ballroom. 
Sarah carried a white mini calla bouquet and her Bridesmaids carried full size callas. 
Not only did Sarah actually used callas for her and her Bridesmaids but she used them throughout her entire wedding.  The Chuppa was covered with white callas, white lilies, white hydrangeas, white roses, white stock, white snapdragon, with a touch of lavender stock and she also used tied full size callas with lily grass. 
Their reception was at the Museum of Art and was catered by Jack Brantley. They used a mixture of tall & low tables with callas & curly willow in the tall tables and white lilies, white hydrangeas and roses in the low arrangements.  They had a 14 foot tall calla arrangement upstairs. 
 Brenda with Parkland Cakes did her cake,  Heidi Graves was her photographer and Bill Grant was their videographer.



Mozeltoff !! And Congratulations to Sarah Strauss & Brian Levin on thier recent marriage !! The elegant evening began at the beautiful Columbia Marriot for the ceremony. Brandt Hulteen and rest of his wonderful staff did a great job of making the Hotel the perfect setting for the traditional Jewish nuptials. The Chuppah was the focal point and it was stunning !! We used white calla lilies, lilies, roses, stock, hydrangea and snapdragons, curly willow, and for a clean splash of color and fragrance …lavender stock. White pipe and drape and uplights (by Displays Unlimited)provided just the right accent… It was a show stopper ! Sarah carried a stunning bouquet of all white mini callas and her bridesmaids carried full-sized callas cut short…a beautifully elegant choice ! Bill Grant of of Grant Digital Media captured every moment.

After the wedding, it was on to a lavish reception across the street at the always lovely Columbia Museum of Art. Chris Carson & her team of professionals had the setting immaculate. Jack Brantley from Aberdeen Catering provided his usual excellent fare and classic antique diner ware including black pin-tuck linens (by Palmetto Party Rentals) and black Chiavari chairs. Since Sarah loves Calla Lilies, Sarah got Calla Lilies !! EVERYWHERE ! From  dramatically tall table centerpieces to the detail of stair handrails…even a TWELVE FOOT TALL Calla Lilly accent piece….next to the new blown glass Chandelier ….talk about Dramatic !! Even the Cake (Parkland Cakes, so you know it was great !) Had mini callas on it …Beautiful.

What a wonderful event for some wonderful people ! Many Congratulations !! And Thank You for allow us to be a part of such a special time !! The American Floral Family
