Real Wedding: Sydney & Joel

Tecumseh, Michigan | Photographer: Heather Jowett

If there’s one thing the covid-19 pandemic has taught me, it’s how to pivot! Unfortunately, it’s also impacted how our awesome clients celebrate the major events in their lives, like their wedding day. The good news is, changing a celebration does not mean canceling it. At Design Quintessentials, we have worked hand-in-hand with our couples to craft their new wedding visions. Keep reading to learn how we brought Sydney and Joel’s vision to life! 

The Perfect New Party for Sydney and Joel 

Sydney and Joel had always envisioned their wedding as a grand celebration of their love, and their initial out-of-state locale reflected this vision. But, the couple realized that this would not be safe with Covid-19, and they needed to take a pause and recalibrate.

What Did This Mean for Them? 

Well, most importantly, this meant rethinking their venue, and it turns out they didn’t have to look far. This amazing couple looked right in their own backyards to find the perfect setting, which turned out to be Sydney’s parents’ yard! The yard is undoubtedly beautiful, but it is also minimalistic. This gave the Design Quintessentials team a blank canvas to work with, and I was excited to get started!  

Because the yard was very minimalistic, we ended up inspired by these open-ended creative possibilities. Looking at the backyard, we realized that we could go bold with our floral arrangements and make them the highlight of the ceremony. 

The Flowers Selection

After careful consultation with our bride and groom, we selected primarily white roses with extravagant greenery to add a huge pop of color. I definitely heard ohhhs and ahhhs from the crowd the first time they saw Sydney’s stunning wedding bouquet.  And, this bouquet was not the only visual stunner at the event. There was a beautiful floral arch with lace draping that the happy couple was married under. 

And One More Benefit … 

White is an amazingly versatile color to use in wedding floral arrangements. It adds a touch of elegance and purity to everything. But, it can also be dressed up or down with other colors. In the pictures from Sydney and Joel’s wedding, we can see how the flowers truly pop against the bridesmaids’ dark, halter-style gowns. This versatility is one of the reasons why the Design Quintessentials team loves working with white flowers.
