Wedding Ceremony

Ceremony flowers have become an essential feature in today’s weddings. In this Wedding Ceremony Flowers workshop the focus will be on the mechanics, props, tools and techniques for creating large scale installations. We will demonstrate and create beautiful designs for a garden wedding, an urban studio wedding, and an over-the-top vineyard wedding.

The focus will be on three unique event venues.The first venue is staged in a lovely formal garden, the second in a chic urban studio and the final venue is out of doors in a spectacular vineyard.

The Vineyard Wedding 

In this segment the focus is on very large scale and extended floral design. Leanne and the Tulip Team will share the mechanics as they demonstrate how to create a large urn design.Then they will turn to seating and signage decor appropriate fo an outdoor vineyard wedding. The grand scale of an outdoor Vineyard Wedding Ceremony with its expansive vistas demands designs that fit the scale.The two twelve foot high urn designs framing the bride couple in the ceremony are perfect for this setting.

The Urban Studio Wedding

 In this segment the challenges on onsite designing is explored.While we always encourage designers to design in the studio then transport and install at the venue, this is not always possible. 

The Urban Studio Wedding Ceremony will feature flower arrangements free of floral foam. This can be very important in selling to the eco-conscious wedding couple.We will explore the pros, the cons, the benefits and the challenges. We will create a hanging floral cloud and detail the mechanics, equipment, tools and cautions involved with suspended designs.We will create a floral column and a candle lighted aisle decorated with flowers and rental props.

The Garden Wedding 

In this segment you will learn how to create a circular arch with a strong focus on correct mechanics. Once you understand and can execute proper mechanics, the rest is easy. We will demonstrate aisle decor that expands and coordinates with the floral arch. We will finish the garden wedding venue with wedding ceremony decorations that include live blooming plants, fresh flowers, faux flowers and rose petals.

We will create wedding ceremony flower arrangements in the studio as you would for a real wedding, then share the techniques as we break down the designs, pack, transport and install the finished designs in the beautiful LanSu Chinese Garden.

The joy of completing and viewing a beautiful wedding ceremony set makes up for all of the work and frustration of planning, ordering, processing, packing, transporting and designing flowers. Throughout this program Leanne reviews installation details, mechanics and the importance of soundly securing structures. Leanne reviews all of the various tasks and labor involved in completing wedding ceremony flower arrangements from sale and conception to installation and breakdown and reminds you that you need to factor and be compensated for the total wedding package. This program is designed not only to "make pretty", but also to "be profitable" 

The Wedding Floral Specialist Ceremony Flowers Program is a must for all professional designers.
