We will undoubtedly always remember Mary Elizabeth and Eric’s October 2019 wedding at the Merrimon Wynne House as a Wylde highlight. Mary Elizabeth – along with her talented planner Cheryl Anne of Kast Events – came to us not only with an organized wish list, but with a contagious curiosity around flowers and design, and a lot of respect and understanding for the way floral artistry can elevate the mood of an event. As the couple’s floral vision came to life through a long process of collaborative planning, we felt really supported to run with our interpretation of that vision and with our own expertise around color theory and seasonal materials. Mary Elizabeth envisioned a color palette of cool tones — blues, purples, and mauves softened with neutrals and rendered autumnal through dark contrast and a lot of texture. We spent a lot of time talking with her and her wonderful mother about plants they loved, and the way the ceremony space could look and feel. Inspired by their love for Pink Muhlenbergia, we designed a dreamy meadow-like ceremony installation with this airy grass as a central ingredient, alongside foraged saltbush, light blue delphinium, and a variety of burgundy foliage. The aisle was lined with intricate arrangements composed in brass trays, which were later moved into the reception space to adorn the long dining tables. The floral recipes were full of many of our favorites, including Amnesia Rose, Black Scabiosa, White Astilbe, Blue Tweedia, and Black Prince Tulips. We particularly loved the way the streamlined Maids’ Bouquet recipe turned out: an elegant combination of Blue Delphinium, White Astilbe, and Burgundy Viburnum foliage. Moving inside for the reception, the couple and their guests dined and danced under a huge greenery chandelier and twinkling market lights. What a memorable, thoughtful day, which we were so honored to lend our hands and hearts to help create. Cheers, ME + Eric!
