Hanna and Noah’s Wedding at Armature Works in Downtown Tampa
For Apple Blossoms Floral Designs and it’s team it was an honor creating this wedding.
Hanna is in the event industry in Atlanta for a major Hotel and came to us with a vision. She also came to us with a budget that was workable. We pulled it all together for her over the course of 3 months. The family has been has been customers of ours for many years. The Wedding consisted of Southern Smilax or Jackson Vine with all white flowers. She just loved the texture of greenery. This has been very popular with brides today.
The Chuppah Hanna wanted was to have a rustic design style with lots of greenery.
Hanna’s family provide a beautiful wood structure that we adorned with Southern Simax, White Stock, Green Hanging Amaranthus, White Hydrangea, Dusty Miller, and White Roes.
Even though a Chuppah is traditional for a Jewish Wedding we find that we also crate these for Christian Weddings as well. The Chuppah symbolizes the Jewish home being created by the marriage.
The additional details of the pew markers using Silver Dollar Eucalyptus were removed after the ceremony and use as additional decoration to the Kings Table for the Reception.
Hanna’s Bridal Bouquet was a Lush Collection of Garden Roses, Blush Spray Roses, Succulents, Dusty Miller, Blue Thistle, and Seeded Eucalyptus in a Garden Style.
We created the Kings Table where the entire wedding party was seated was 32 feet long with an elevated garland of Southern Smilax and hanging votive candles. The table glistened with the twinkle of more than 60 hanging candles.
The Guest tables were adorned with lush High and low arrangements that complemented the Rustic Style of the wedding and the Rustic Style of the Armature Works Gathering Hall.

Terrariums are all the rage. I remember making terrariums back in the 70’s when I was just a kid. We would collect small plants and items in the mountains and create these amazing little echo systems that would last for years with little care. It’s like looking into a miniature garden. The plants we use in our terrariums here at Apple Blossoms Floral Designs are called Pixie Plants. These plants have been cultivated to maintain a miniature garden. These are great for the office or the home. They have also become very popular as wedding centerpieces or a signature arrangement on a special table such as a sign in table, or gift table. Who wouldn’t want to receive these as a gift that keeps giving?read more
