Botanica Flowers: “Best florist for Wedding Flowers in Columbus Ohio” – Cassie

A snippet from Cassie’s recent review that warms our heart to read as we have put a lot of time and energy into building this brand. As time slips away constantly, I realized it’s been far too long since we took to the blog! So many things and changes have happened since this time last year. Our biggest happenings include the welcoming of a new Botanica Flowers team member, Amy, who I will introduce later in this post, bridal shows, relationship building, completely booked weekends and *drumroll* a total revamp of our wedding website columbusweddingflorist.com

With this new wedding and events website overhaul, we have incorporated a far better and more detailed Wedding Flower Packages page for our prospective clients. We realize that there are two types of brides and rarely the in-between when it comes to selecting your wedding flowers. You’re either the bride that knows exactly what you want down to the technical name of colors with a very definitive vision or you’re the bride that doesn’t really have any idea and would like guidance in selecting the best flowers to accommodate your personality and type of wedding. Regardless, we love to work with all types of brides, we have tools to help you define your budget and the ability to make many accommodations to ensure that your wedding flowers will be the least of your stressors leading up to your big day!

For the bride who’s not so sure, you now can browse through trendy pre-packaged wedding flower designs that our design team has created. You will find more traditional style packages along with some eclectic designs to showcase a little something for everyone. After you make a selection, you can choose between three different options based on your needs, Intimate, Trendy and all All out Bash. At this point, you have the capability of editing any quantities within the package or completely customizing a specific wedding flower package from scratch.

Dreamy Downtown Columbus Wedding

Purple Wedding Inspiration

This stunning wedding was held in the beautiful Downtown Columbus Athletic Club founded in 1912. The gorgeous bride, Ivana, was not shy when it came to incorporating a bold purple hue into her special day. The bridesmaids wore dazzling royal dresses and carried gorgeous, traditional style, hand-tied bouquets of purple hydrangea, pale peach roses and burgundy calla lilies. Ivana’s bouquet was softened version of the bridesmaids bouquets using only a touch of burgundy calla lilies along with white lisianthus, white stock and pale peach and pink roses.

White Weddings. In or out?

In an ever changing industry, colors change, trends change but one thing seems to remain consistent… White weddings never seem to go out of style. They’re classic, they’re elegant and clean and we can’t get enough with this one! Our design team really pulled through with this big event to make a lucky central Ohio brides floral vision come to life.

In the photos you will see luscious white hydrangea, gorgeous white lilies, white snapdragons, seeded eucalyptus and simple stand-alone white gladiolus just to name a few.

Upon entering the ceremony seating, you were greeted with an oversized vase full of simple white gladiolus on each side with curly willow tips used for an earthy feel that gives natural height. The aisle was lined with beautiful and elegant white rose petals down each side that lead to the simple archway where the bride and groom would stand.

The newlyweds table was gorgeously decorated with an oversized clean and natural table piece of hydrangea, lilies, roses, snapdragons and dusty miller. With a piece like this, there would be no questions as to where the focal point of the reception was.

A modern and trending thing to do with your wedding centerpieces is to have a combination of tall pieces on half of the tables and low pieces on the other half and mix and distribute them evenly. This gives the room a nice flow.

In conclusion, to any Bride to Be, if you ever find yourself stuck on what colors to choose for your big day, assume that white is always classy, elegant and never going out of style!

Macedonian Wedding Reception at the Hilton Downtown

With over 900 stems of gorgeous white hydrangea ordered for one event, it’s no surprise that the end result was classy and breathtaking! Mario and Jessica tied the knot at the stunning Macedonian Orthodox Cathedral at 400 Waggoner Road, Reynoldsburg, OH 43068 this past Saturday. Buckets and buckets of gorgeous hydrangea filled both sides of our trailer as we prepared ourselves for the big day!

Jessica’s one-of-a-kind bridal bouquet, round in style, featured luscious hot pink garden roses accented with hot pink petite roses, gorgeous peonies, fragrant white and lavender freesia and a touch of purple stock. This bouquet was hand-tied with beautiful satin ribbon. (pictures coming soon!)

Bridesmaids Bouquet

Jessica’s special maid of honor and bridesmaids were recognized with a bouquet of lush hot pink garden roses and stunning hot pink peonies hand-tied with sheer ribbon.

These peonies were to die for and the garden roses smelled heavenly!

Wedding Reception Flowers

These two love birds, joined with their families and friends, partied the remainder of the day and night away at the Hilton Downtown at 401 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43215

Eight round guest tables at the reception featured 3-4 foot tall martini glass centerpieces with white hydrangea and luscious white garden roses accompanied with several smaller vases and candles around the base full of lisianthus, hydrangea and peonies. The dazzling gold linens with the white floral blooms really made this reception a classy look and feel.

There were four family tables that were decorated with low style centerpieces down the middle of the table made of white hydrangea and white garden roses.

The head table of the newly weds and their wedding party featured three very large floral pieces made of white hydrangea and lush garden roses. These arrangements were a focal point of the room. These picture do no justice as to how beautiful and powerful these pieces really were.
