We are still swooning over Andrew + Ashling’s wedding at Spindletop in Lexington, Kentucky. From their classic floral palette to their most personal details, this wedding is a favorite!
Andrew and Ashling combined their Chinese and Kentucky roots to create a truly one of a kind wedding experience for their guests. Our bride, Ashling, owns her own stationary company over at Lotus & Ash and created her own stunning wedding invitations and escort wall display. We loved the colors she chose, as they reflect that Chinese heritage. For food the couple decided to serve the Southern comfort classics like fried chicken, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, biscuits, and corn pudding. These were just some of our favorite details, there were so many more personal touches that made this wedding special and unique.
When you have your wedding at Spindletop, you get the best of both worlds on having an indoor and outdoor space. The couple chose to have their ceremony in front of the venue on the beautiful lawn. We didn’t want to distract from the beautiful scenery, but to dress the space up a little we provided two floral urns to start at the front of the aisle. After the ceremony, the guests were directed to the library inside of Spindletop for cocktail hour. Once cocktail hour was complete, the guests gathered outside the back of the venue underneath a tent filled with greenery and lights for the reception. We love it when our couples utilize a venue properly and take full advantage of the space!
Since the Spindletop tent was mostly white and we had to bring the flaps all the way down because of the weather, the wedding planning team, Laurel and Rose, wanted to soften it up with some greenery. We went all out! Greenery can really transform a space and give it that organic feel that it sometimes need. The before and after transformation was incredible and I’m so happy with how it turned out.
For the flowers we had the classic white and green color palette with just a pop of orange for the reception blooms to again pay tribute to Ashling’s chinese heritage. We used a mix of light and dark ferns with Ranunculus, Dahlias, Majolica Spray Roses, and Anemones. Since the couple had a black and white dance floor, we used our black compote centerpiece vessels to the floral designs be more cohesive.

"Kaytee has been nothing short of AMAZING! From the first time we met with her I knew that she would be able to make all of my wedding flower dreams come true! And that is exactly what she did! From my bouquet, to all of the personals for the wedding party, to filling the terrariums that my mom and I bought for my centerpieces! She never hesitated to help us with suggestions or brain storm when changes needed to be made. Even with her moving out of the state that I live in, she never missed a meeting or detail! Kaytee and her assistant even stayed to make sure all of the transition from cocktail hour location to our dinner location was a smooth and seamless as we wanted! Our day was so perfect and a HUGE reason why was because of Kaytee’s professionalism and passion for her business! Thank you so much Kaytee! I would recommend Roots Floral Design to anyone and everyone!"
