Happy Friday! Today we’re bringing you some major, environmental floral design—think arbors, chuppas, wreaths, and floating, floral explosions (yes!). We absolutely love the way floral structures can take an event to the next level; like turning a basic warehouse into a magical garden or establishing an intimate ceremony setting within a vast, mountainous landscape. We’ve rounded up ten of our all-time favorites so get ready to be inspired. TGIFlowers!!

1. A giant wreath dripping with florals and greens is always a perfect intro to an elegant, outdoor celebration.

2) This full-blown floral wall is what GLW dreams are made of and makes for a striking  ceremony backdrop.

3) Floral arbors are all the rage right now, and for good reason—they are GORGEOUS! We’ve featured some serious beauties (like this one) and it’s hard to narrow down to one favorite so we’ve included five of them in our round-up:

Asymmetry rules in this coral beauty.

We love the pastel floral explosion on this spectacular arch.

Giant, graphic palms are SO cool for a tropical wedding.

Small flowering blooms add give this full arch an amazing textural look. We love how perfect the unexpected color combo is for an incredible Tuscan wedding.

5) Make a statement in your tent with a suspended floral and candle chandelier. Wow!

The Wedding of Lauren and Brian

6) This hanging box installation is basically A Midsummer Night’s Dream brought to life in a warehouse.

7) Why not create a foliage ceiling?!

8 ) Super-bright + Super-bold is always a show stopper as seen here.

9) How about this fabulously fruity chupppa! It’s so graphic and so cool.

10) Last but not least, we’re still crazy about this paper, floral arch from Mai and Aaron’s punchy graphic wedding.  Why not paper?!

A bit from Rebecca Rose Events:

Nestled just outside of Charleston, South Carolina, this historic landmark site is so beautifully preserved and curated that something blooms year-round. It is full to the brim with beauty and quintessential southern charm. Inspired by the grounds and gardens, with this shoot the creative team imagined a summer garden wedding celebration that is as strikingly simple in its beauty as it is cheerful and welcoming – both hallmarks of classic southern hospitality. In the 1700’s, Henry Middleton championed geometry and symmetry in planning the layout of the garden. They crafted our details with a like-minded approach, using clean and simple lines paired with colorful organic floral details.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “earth laughs in flowers.” Today’s irresistible floral feature from Mariel Hannah and Poppy Design Co. is proof that Emerson had it right. Everything about this shoot is pure happiness. The jewel tones are mesmerizing and the final arrangement is lighthearted and spectacular. Go ahead. Enjoy some of earth’s laughter.

From Poppy Design Co.: In this series, I used a ton of color. Jewel tones are really happy, and they really work well together. There isn’t much rule when working with such an abundance choice in tones, just go for what you love. For this series, we found a lot of inspiration from simply walking the market and choosing healthy, seasonal blooms in rich, deep tones.

Jennie and Zach celebrated their marriage with a gorgeous wedding day at the historic Bingham House in Texas. The couple sought the help of close friends, and fabulous stylists, at Blooming House Collective, for all their event styling—and, wow, was it ever beautiful! The florals are beyond spectacular, from the signage wreath, to the head pieces to the striking bouquet. And we love the underlying romance in every stunning image captured by Cassie Loree, who happens to be another friend of the couple. How talented are Jennie and Zach’s friends?!

What made the wedding special and unique?

Our October wedding celebration was special to us because it was actually a follow up to a more intimate ceremony we had in April. We were able to use our close friends at Blooming House Collective for all our styling, the title theme “I Love You, I Do” came from a song written by a close friend of the brides, Maggie Koerner, photography by another close friend, Cassie Loree Photography. Having it in the evening at the Bingham House set the perfect backdrop for the atmosphere we were trying to accomplish. This really was a celebration for all our friends and family!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I first became aware of Berta Bridal through searches on Pinterest, but quickly realized how hard it would be to actually get a dress, let alone just see one in person. The nearest store to try one on was NYC or Boston and that wasn’t happening. In perfect timing, I found out they were doing trunk shows in Texas and I was able to talk myself into an already booked show at Bridal Boutique Lewisville. The dream dress fit in one try. No alterations needed – so I knew for sure it was the one. So they sent off the order to be hand made and I would get it just a few weeks before the actual wedding date – cutting it super close.

What were some touches added to make it personal?

We tried to keep the whole ceremony very personal. First of all it was super low key – less than 100 guests – very close friends and family. Everything from start to finish was done through the same company (BHC) who did our invitations and also our event styling and all calligraphy (pics) . We were married by our friend and church pastor. In one of the sitting areas we were able to use some of my parents old radios that my dad had restored and scattered family photos around. Our 18 month daughter was a flower girl and also made her way up the stairs to join us for the sand pour. And finally for our sand pouring and first dance we had our close friends sing and play rather than a DJ. We also made sure every guest had a personalized name tag (BHC) to go home with.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The entire day was a happy blur (even more than I thought it would be) but there were a few points where we were finally able to slow down for a moment. The first time was our first dance. We had our friend Taylor Phelan sing “All Of Me” by John Legend and that was when Zach and I were finally able to relax and feel everything happening around us. What an incredible day it had been so far! The next time was at the very end. We were picked up by a horse and carriage in front of Bingham house and I think we both had the biggest smiles and tears in our eyes as we were driven off and were able to look back at all of our friends and family who made all of this so special.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We met in Shreveport while I was recording an album at Blade Studios but it wasn’t until a few weeks later on the back of Dave Matthews tour bus driving to SXSW that we actually talked. Soon after that we moved back to Dallas and had a daughter named Stella. We had talked about getting married, but didn’t get serious about it until he proposed at our Valentine’s Day dinner the next year.
