Lauren & Stephen's Wedding at Hickory Street Annex


The planning process with Lauren & Stephen was all that it should be - fun, seamless, and focused on the love that these two share with one another. Any decision we made came back to the careful consideration of whether or not it was an accurate representation of the couple's personality and style, which culminated into a carefully curated wedding day, full of personal touches and gorgeous details at every turn. Check out the full feature on Style Me Pretty!

We started with the idea of juxtaposing the industrial aesthetic of their ceremony & reception venue, Hickory Street Annex, with the couple's new, shared last name "Flowers." This created a gorgeous garden atmosphere for Lauren & Stephen's guests, as they enjoyed the comforts of an intimate setting as rain lightly ran down the window panes that Saturday.


We selected a color palette of lavender, blush, and hints of deeper colors to give the wedding depth and excitement. Our florist, Venus & Co., selected wild spring blooms to bring a French garden aesthetic into our design. The ceremony was set to evoke an intimate feeling, with guests arranged in a semi-circle, looking on at Lauren & Stephen surrounded by tall, garden inspired arrangements, and floral centerpieces adorning the aisle.


After the ceremony, guests dined on passed appetizers and signature cocktails while we transformed the space upstairs. Lush velvet textured linens, patterned chargers, hand-torn place cards and gold rimmed glassware adorned the table, along with the soft glow of candlelight as guests dined on home-style barbeque, a favorite cuisine of the couple.


The couple and their guests danced the night away under string lights, and walked through a confetti tunnel at the end of the evening, into their new life together.
