Kirsten had a beautiful vision for her barn wedding in Lexington, looking to bring the outdoors inside. We steered away from our tried-and-trues and decided to include only greenery on the tables inside the barn. It was definitely a first for us, but definitely not the last time we’ll be incorporating this look into a wedding!
We knew we needed the perfect greenery for Kirsten’s tables. We decided Italian Ruscus were the best choice, with its beautiful dark green color and a long, lush stem – it would be perfect for this bluegrass barn wedding. The inside of the barn was more industrial than most, so our vision was to bring some softer edges back into space with the greenery without over-doing it. It was important the charm of the reception space stay in tact, allowing the greenery to compliment the space instead of compete with it.
To make sure her personal flowers stood out from the reception flowers, we decided on dreamy whites and creams. Kirsten’s bouquet was one of our most favorite summer bouquets with peonies, spirea, astrantia, queen annes lace, charity garden roses, majolica spray roses.
The property had a designated ceremony spot, so we dressed up the structure with a beautiful lush asymmetrical design that would stand out against the rolling bluegrass hills of Kentucky. To define the ceremony area, we also added floral-adorned bourbon barrels to the entrance, which we then reused at the reception. Anytime we can find a way to repurpose the ceremony flowers at the reception, we’re 100% in!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
