Wedding Style

We get asked to plan, design and style weddings of all shapes and sizes and it's always fun to collaborate with other vendors in the process. Photographers Casia + Eric Fletcher, with Purple Nickel, a boutique portrait photography studio based in Tucson are some of our favs!  We always feel extra special when they agree to take on one of our weddings, because they specialize in creating custom art using architecture, interior design and unique backgrounds.  Combine their talent and the honor of being asked to style a fellow wedding planners wedding and WOW!  Magic happens!

Vertical Gardening

Vertical gardening is on the rise. You can call them what you like...living walls, eco-walls, green walls or even wall art.  Such walls may be indoors or outside, freestanding or attached and come in a great variety of sizes. LaFleur Plantscapes can design and install a wall that's right for you.

The Backup Plan

Tucson averages 11 inches of rain per year translating to about 48 days of measurable precipitation.  Many clients choose Tucson because they know the odds are in their favor. Gorgeous mountains, beautiful desert flora, warm temperatures and sun!  Well we know better...don't we... How does LaFleur Plantscapes make their New York bride feel like she's in the warm, sunny desert on a rainy day?  We rally the team and execute the back up plan, bringing in over 100 tropical plants and cacti to create a mobile greenhouse inside of a clear tent.

Warm and cozy.

Floral Details

Most of our events are big affairs with plenty of pomp and circumstance, but this one was an intimate sunset wedding and we can't stop gushing over the photos! table 8

The lovely Tanque Verde Guest Ranch...yes we've styled quite a few events at this venue and we think it's because their clients love our design aesthetic.  Clean, natural, modern yet classic, eco-friendly floral design.

LaFleur Plantscapes Supports Same-Sex Weddings

Image

In light of the current Arizona Senate bill allowing businesses to discriminate against our LGBTQI brothers and sisters, we felt compelled to share one of our recent same-sex weddings.  We are a downtown Tucson business that fully supports and is willing to serve our community regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender and disability. 

This story is so close to home because it starts with one of our own, Amelia, Lead Designer and Manager of Atelier de LaFleur who recently married her best friend and partner in life Callie.  These two beautiful women met in the bay area 9 years ago and this summer they decided to tie the knot.

It was very important to both of them to create a ceremony that portrayed their spiritual beliefs. They specifically wanted to create an experience where everyone would feel included and the importance of the day would  fill their guests hearts with unconditional love.

ImageGuests were seated in a spiral and the wedding rings were blessed by passing them around to family and friends.They burned sage, called in the four directions of the Cherokee medicine wheel, the Seven Jewish Blessings were revised to represent their same-sex marriage and they displayed a ancestor altar.

Every detail of the ceremony and reception was styled by Amelia.  Hand-crafted banners, table numbers and party favors were made by family and friends and decor props were provided by LaFleur.

Amelia designed a bouquet that included hand picked cotton from a field in Alabama, dahlias, poppy pods, delphiniums and lace leaf dusty miller.

ImagePictures of friends and family that could not attend were with them in spirit.  Amelia and Callie strung their photos from the trees through the path connecting ceremony and reception.

Scout (American Bulldog), Luna (Olde English Bulldog), and Shelby (Olde French Bulldog) participated in the ceremony as ring bearers and additional entertainment throughout the evening.

LaFleur feels so honored to feature Amelia and Callie's wedding and we strongly believe their message of love and acceptance is universal.  We will continue to support same sex weddings, serving the entire Tucson community.

Happy 2014!

WOW...I had no idea...2013  would exceed my expectations in every way!  I am so thankful for my beautifully talented and extremely dedicated team.  There's a standing joke that I require four things to get an internship or position with our firm ...

  1. Comfortable cowboy boots
  2. A little black dress
  3. Red lipstick
  4. The ability to lift 60 lb. in a dress, boots with red lipstick on and not bitch about it.

I hired all of my designers serendipitously. They are the happy accidents that every employer wishes for.  I feel so blessed to design along side them every week. Thank you- Amelia, Brittany, Megan, Lizzy, Nicole and Claire
