Gorgeous white wedding at Stillwell House

LOVE this wedding!   The wedding floral by Atelier de LaFleur included gorgeous dahlias, scabiosa, white anemones, garden roses and the bride's signature flora "Jasmine".  Photography by Elyse Hall.

An Eco-Friendly, Louisiana style wedding

For this New Orleans style wedding, the couple wanted to stay as eco- friendly as possible.  The centerpieces were planted with different varieties of succulents and beautiful fresh floral.  Each place setting displayed planted  aloes which doubled as the guests wedding favor. For the brides bouquet we used a mix of orchids, roses, succulents, anemones and wax flower.  The groom is the owner and chef of The Parish (a southern fusion gastropub) so we used fresh herbs along with succulents and tied them together with moss to represent the bayou of Louisiana.

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 Workshop

Last week we hosted a floral design class at the atelier!  Given as a holiday gift by their husbands, these lucky ladies got to get their hands dirty and make some very advanced floral arrangements.  They learned how to use the tools of the trade,  how to cut and handle floral, as well as taping and wiring of succulents.

Aqua Linda Farms Wedding

We recently styled a wedding out at Aqua Linda Farms in Amado Az. Our inspiration for the floral was to design arrangements and bouquets that complemented the brides sash. Not only did we design some beautiful and unique floral, but also installed decor and linens as well.

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.
