Intimate weddings are all the rage for 2020 and this wedding at The Factory Events was the perfect example of how intimate weddings should be. Despite the many changes of plans, Jordan and Emily’s wedding day was perfect in every single way. Since the wedding was at The Factory Events in the outdoor courtyard, Emily only wanted to enhance the beauty that was already there in the gardens. We decided to do a plant ceremony installation! Instead of a floral arch, I bought potted plants to frame the happy couple. To add some dimension, I purchased several colored pots as well as wooden bud vases. All though these details may seem small, it added depth to the installation and gave it interest.
For the actual floral arrangements, Emily wanted all the texture. This gets me excited as a florist since I hardly get to go all out with texture! I purchased Snowberry, Astrantia, Lace Cap Hydrangea, and Calycina. These blooms really gave each arrangement the texture and interest that the bride wanted. To soften it up sightly and to give each arrangement height I added Butterfly Ranunculus, Majolica Spray Roses, and Ranunculus. The flow-y cream ribbon on the bouquet was the perfect touch to add that balance.
I partnered with Samantha Joy Events to make sure the tables at the reception were along aesthetic lines. I saw green and purple tomatoes at the wholesale and knew I wanted to use them somehow for this event. Samantha and I placed them along the table in between the grey candles and centerpieces. The tomatoes added a sense of texture without it being too overwhelming. It also was extremely unique. What wedding has purple tomatoes on the tables?!
Although this wedding was small, it was my favorite intimate wedding of 2020. Jordan and Emily were rays of light during the dark cloud of the pandemic and I’m so blessed I got to have them as clients. I know they are living a happily ever after and I wish them all the best.

“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.

"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!"
