We loved designing flowers for Nate and Lauren’s intimate Louisville, Kentucky wedding. In our first conversation, I learned that there would be less than 20 people at their wedding. Nate and Lauren had started out with originally invited over 250 guests. They soon realized that the most important part of getting married was being taken over by other details. Catering, budget, logistics.. Elements that are so important for weddings. Nate and Lauren decided they wanted to go without and have a small and intimate wedding.
Since there were about 15 people invited, the couple only needed two centerpieces for their tables. For the ceremony, they asked for urns so that those arrangements could also be reused. Her bouquet and his boutonniere were the final floral elements for their wedding. No installations and no wedding party. It seemed odd at the beginning, but I think when you scroll through their photos you will find that it was perfect.
My favorite arrangements were the entrance urns. Those lush peonies and overflowing southern smilax created a unique and stunning design. Entrance urns are a great element to add for your ceremony that can easily be reused for your reception. We highly recommend them!
Lauren owns a floral truck in Louisville called Fleur & Frond in Louisville, Kentucky. It’s a build your own bouquet truck that travels around the Louisville area. It was a bit intimidating to flower for someone who also works professionally with flowers. I was honored that she wanted me to design her wedding day arrangements.

“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."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"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!"
