Vintage Velvet Wedding at a Historic Atlanta Venue

We got married in March at Livingston restaurant in the Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta, GA. Our wedding was intimate (20 guests!), with an emphasis on great family, great food, and great wine. We're definitely a little on the offbeat side (I was a tattooed bride in a blue dress) but I wanted to capture a classic and elegant look with plenty of texture and vintage touches. Keeping things neutral in shades of white, cream, and blush with little hints of light blue and burgundy (a nod to my background as a sommelier) to keep it from being too uniform.

We planned our entire wedding from Austin, TX where my husband and I live, teleconferencing the whole time with my mother in Florida. Doing a trial run while my she was in town definitely relieved my nervousness about doing my own flowers, there was definitely a learning curve but the trial made it easier to figure out than without it!

The flowers arrived promptly when they said they would, and our hotel was able to hold them for us at the concierge desk until we were able to process them (only about an hour). The quantity was perfect for our purposes, we had arrangements that varied from tiny buds to larger arrangements. The assortment of flowers ensured that each arrangement wasn't matchy-matchy.

So many people asked who our florist was, and I gladly responded "me!" every time. Thanks again, Fifty Flowers (and Violet!) for helping me with the wedding flowers of my dreams! I've already sent flowers to friends and family since the event.
