Wellshire Event Center Flower Decor Essentials
With careful consideration to this transitional design aesthetic of an old English styled country club, such as the Wellshire Inn, paired with contemporary elements of modern fashion forward attire with wedding acrylic accessories, for our design concept we boldly interlaced the two contrasting themes with a cozy café latte bar inspired floralscape design. With cappuccino roses as a focal flower, our team of florists were able to layer in a color story with textures that were cohesive to that of a traditional café menu such as a freshly steamed milky haven macchiato, a foamy whipped salted caramel Vienna, or a sweet cream affogato. Alike most café latte shop experiences, there is an old world meets new era atmosphere, and our design focus was to recreate this distinctive coffee shop ethos with our wedding floral design.
As a transitional style, bridging from old English to contemporary, this comprised of the strategic continual use of supporting metallic materials featuring hues of gold finished chalices and accessories with shades of textured copper. When it applied to the ceremony aisle's growing garland flower pillars or the ceremony flower arch, bold isolated shapes were beholden to our design commitment for combining a contemporary gallery aesthetic. From our flower tablescapes to our event flower installations, our café latte inspired design theme served as a great inspiration for this contemporary and traditional -- thus transitional styled wedding at the Wellshire Event Center.
