The One Where I Admit I'm Coming Around to Babies Breath

Wow. Here we are. It’s a momentous occasion, ya’ll.

If you’ve followed us for any sort of time, you know that there are very few flowers that I hate. In fact, there’s really just ONE if we’re being specific. And that one flower…. is babies breath.

STAY WITH ME HERE.

I’m a child of the 90’s. My perception of babies breath is one sad spring alongside a way-too-tight red rose in cellophane paper at my local Safeway. It sheds. It’s hard to tell when it’s alive and fresh because it kind of holds its shape when it dies. And when you use it in mass, it smells like old feet. True story.

SO, for the first few years of this company, I all but refused to use it. If clients requested babies breath, we gently swayed them in a different direction. If they DEMANDED IT (lol our clients are lovely and no one ever does this) we would use it but, ya know, on the DL.

Then, Mandy Moore got married. And that broad’s wedding was FULL of babies breath and pampas grass. AND GOD DAMNIT IT LOOKED SO COOL. So now, we’re inundated with babies breath requests. And after this shoot from the incredible mind of Molly Donovan, dare I say…. I sort of like babies breath now…

Alexis & Trey's Winery Wedding

October is going to be a month of "oh my goodness this wedding was my favorite wedding" posts. But really, Alexis and Trey had a day full of SO MUCH magic that I can't believe it's taken me nearly a year to share.

DA Ranch Fall Wedding

First things first, these two were one of the kindest couples we have ever worked with. And that's saying something because our clients are awesome. Every step of the way, Alexis guided us with her vision while simultaneously trusting that we would bring our creative vision to the table for a result that would be a dream for everyone involved.

Alexis and Trey tied the knot at a winery owned by Trey's family in northern Arizona. The utilized the whole property but our favorite space was the incredible barn that housed their reception. I'm getting ahead of myself but just wait for the incredible set-up later in this post!!

Let's start with the happy couple and all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The color palette for the wedding could only be described as "Arizona realness" with a gorgeous mix of ivory and copper. My favorite bloom in the bunch were the incredible koko loko garden roses that grow in this unbelievable shade of nude and immediately make every arrangement about 100 times classier and more mysterious.

The ceremony centered around this AMAZING tree. The only additional decor were some oversize arrangements at the entrance to the space and some blooms to adorn the chairs down the aisle. We topped it all off with a light sprinkling of rose petals.

After the ceremony, everyone made their way to the gorgeous tented reception space. Copper and ivory centerpieces graced the tables and gorgeous twinkly lights lit up the tent. Speeches were given and everyone danced the night away and honestly, we wish we were part of that party.
