wedding wednesday: simple floral centerpieces

Hi Ya'll! It's a new month and a new wedding Wednesday! It's my favorite time!!! Today I'm showing ya'll simple floral centerpieces. It's weird because I just had a meeting with one of my brides where we talked about ideas for centerpieces. I think this is the perfect topic for wedding Wednesday! Also, I'm not a professional florist by any means. Florists do a wonderful job creating magnificent arrangements and are total artists!!!

Every bride has different budgets and where they choose to spend for their special day. Some brides splurge on centerpieces, but some brides may opt to splurge on photography. So, if you don't want to splurge on centerpieces and want something sweet and simple stick around!

These flowers are from my back yard! I love flowers! Having fresh florals all over the home is my favorite décor. However, you can go to the supermarket and pick up some fresh florals too! I had so much fun playing with these floral arrangements. It's weird but it's soothing to me to cut and arrange flowers.

Some things I think about when putting flowers together are colors, size, and volume. Don't worry, i'm not going to turn this into a math course!! However, when I put flowers together I think of my wardrobe or paint colors. This will give you an idea of what colors pair well together. (See how florists are artists?!!) For example, purple Lavender with yellow Gladiolus. So don't mix a crazy amount of colors together because that will drive your eyes crazy. Then look at size. If you like tall centerpieces, you'll want to get tall vases and keep the stems long rather cutting them down. You will also want to keep the flowers at a similar height as other flowers you mix in, but not all the same height. For volume, you will want to have fillers. Fillers will give your centerpiece volume if you want to spread your pretty blooms around. My favorite would be lily of the valley or baby's breath. If you don't have that in your backyard lol then you could cut some greens/branches or purchase it like I did below.

Enjoy my simple centerpieces I created all from my backyard!

I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

Charlotte NC Engagement- Maurice + KaShara

Although we had overcast weather and it was in the 60s, this engagement session turned out to be the best! There wasn't any wind and these two are wonderful! Souwan, Haylee and I drove out to the Noda area of Charlotte to meet with Maurice and KaShara at Amelie's. I had a wonderful time getting to know all about the two of them and details about their upcoming fall wedding. As soon as KaShara and Maurice walked in with huge smiles and hugs, I knew this was going to be a great couple to work with! I have known Maurice since college and was so thrilled that they reached out to me on Instagram. I easily fell in love with KaShara and just knew this is a match! We went out to Noda and our old college stomping ground Frazier Park behind Johnson & Wales. Noda is filled with really great places to photograph from all the beautiful buildings and the artistic work! Frazier Park brought back memories for all of us! They have the cutest furbabies who they used to bring to Frazier. I l…
