This was my last wedding before leaving Charlotte and honestly it couldn’t have been better... I miss @sarahbeththie dearly but looking through these stunning photos by @lfridayphoto brings me back and I’m so happy! I’ll probably share like five photos in a row from this wedding so stay tuned 🌿✨
I’ve got an exciting event coming up in January and I can’t wait to tell you all about it ✨ For now... here’s a stunning photo from this past summer by @jimtricephoto at @dukemansion with @sarahbeththie
One of my favorite stairwells... there’s never too much smilax 🌿

Since opening our business earlier this year, we knew having the logistics in order were a priority before we were able to fully serve and provide clients our undivided attention. All that hard work has paid off and TODAY we arrived @foresthallatchathammills delivering bridal party flowers for our first amazing bride, @p_gente We are so honored & tickled to be on this small business journey as a family, but also on a journey with all our amazing couples who have booked with us so far. We are @twigandtendril because of you!! Thank you!!! @weddedkiss @foresthallatchathammills and @harmonyweddingsevents - you are all amazing too!!
When @addcardwell came to me wanting to make an asymmetrical hoop backdrop for @connerrrr93 wedding, I was all 😍💃🏻😍💃🏻. Cannot emphasize enough how fun it is doing creative installs for brides that want to make their wedding uniquely beautiful.
One week away just isn’t enough... I’m more of a two week vacation kinda gal 😬 Between the mountains and the beach I choose the mountains always. Phil and I dream about having a second home in the mountains all. the. time! What about you?? Photo: @adelynboling
Look out, world! There are going to be some good looking wreathes on your block. All of the studio-based wreath classes are booked but there is still room in our off-campus classes at @summerfieldfarms & @preyerbrewing. Don't miss one last shot at being able to soak up all of the WSFS goodness and design alongside Amy before she embarks on a new journey. Head to our profile and click the #linkinbio to reserve your spot!
It finally happened this weekend. Everything froze over in the garden. That means it’s time to dig tubers, do some much needed weeding, mulch, and sit quietly by to wait for spring. In the meantime we can enjoy these roses & dahlias from Ashley’s bridal session. Swoon 💕
The holiday season is almost here! ✨🎄 Who needs a wreath to jazz up their front door? If your answer is yes, then join us at one of our Custom Wreath Design classes.

Flatlay shots are some of my favorite... I love getting to see the creativity of the photographer and planner come through in these. This one by @adelynboling is pretty amazing ✨

I become best friends with @connerrrr93 when I was 11. We would go upstairs during church services and light plastic forks on fire. I feel like that sums up our friendship. Yesterday was so beautiful, & got to meet & work with some sick nasty angel vendors. . (Also, do you see this view!?)
Just dropped off this bouquet to one of my childhood friends. ⠀
When i was really young (maybe 10), i was really into weddings. Our other friend Caitlyn and I would pretend to marry my oldest brother to our gal pal Taylor because she liked him (they were 15). Fast forward 13 years and today Taylor is LEGALLY getting married and asked me to be apart of it again. This time, as the florist and not the officiant 😏

Wanna know something? I can confidently say that flowers are the medium I’ll use to spread art for the rest of my days. I feel it in my bones. I drive down the road and all I can think about is how beautiful God is... looking at His creation. My mind is constantly a collage of various shades and textures.... heights and angles. Flowers create memories... I love working with brides to bring their style to life with them. I love arriving with my creations and setting them on the tables for guests to smell and marvel at while they gather and celebrate with people they hold dear. I love to bring the bride the artwork that she’ll carry down the aisle toward the love of her life. And I love that I have a God as creative as mine. These flowers take my breath away. Being a wedding and event florist isn’t a paycheck for me... it’s a deep passion for taking nature and layering it together into something beautiful... and God willing I’ll be doing it for many many years 🌿

I just need to tell you all how grateful I am. I’ve gotten so many inquiries from the SWEETEST brides the past few days... with the most beautiful style. You wouldn’t believe how much joy I find in flowers 🌿 To know that people want my designs to be a part of one of the most important days of their life is mind blowing. I am looking so forward to the weddings I get the chance to flower in 2019. Thank you 💕

You know what is scary? Waking up and realizing you’ve become your mom almost overnight. Growing up, my mom was the queen of the hot glue gun and would make some pretty elaborate costumes for my siblings and I - Elizabethan courtier, Cleopatra, and my personal favorite, Xena - Princess Warrior. All of these out of glue, loose fabric, and foam, not a proper stitch to be found. I could write a book on how she was a hot glue wizard but I’ll refrain ha! I spent most of last night finishing costumes, with my new hot glue gun from Amazon, and I traded my car in for what my husband calls a “baby wagon” (just like my mom’s) last night, completing my transformation into Momma Carp. And you know what? I’m totally ok with that because I realize how my mom was, and still is, a total rockstar. Happy Halloween all!
Get your Sunday Funday on, holiday style! On December 9th we'll be hosting our Holiday Wreath Class at @preyerbrewing. This is the perfect unique opportunity to gather with your best pals to celebrate friendship and the holidays while crafting a wreath! #wsflowerschool#holidaywreathmaking#greensboronc

It’s 👏🏼 all 👏🏼 about 👏🏼 the 👏🏼 details! LOVE this bookshelf from @crusheventdesign ... I mean 😻 I will never get tired of posting this @champagne_manor wedding with @thegracefulhost . Ashley’s attention to detail paired with @perryvaile stunning photos and a bride too stunning for words make for a pretty amazing gallery to look through 💕
Watching Seinfeld instead of cleaning out buckets because it’s hands down my favorite sitcom. That’s right, I said it. It’s timeless and hilarious.
It’s funny how as you get older you start to like things you used to hate. Like 60 minutes and jeopardy 😬😜
I like to do this thing where i sing little tunes about what I’m doing... Whether it’s cutting mint in the garden or moving my flowers around in my hand to get the shape i want. Thankful for flower friends like @tayserino from @goodseedfloral who like to add on to those tunes and make me feel like I’m not the only one 😏
Just realized one of our styled shoots was featured on @thewhitewren Instagram a while ago... so naturally I did a happy dance. Go check our their beautifully curated feed! Also... neutral brides... don’t be afraid to incorporate blue! How pretty is this muscari? It even comes in a super pale blue and I think it’s to die for 💙

Happy Wednesday 🌿 I’ve got a to do list the size of Texas and the only thing getting me through is my cozy sweater... some yummy kombucha and these photos that @adelynboling snapped really quick while she helped me set these tables at @thebigfakewedding !
Place Settings: @longesttimedesign
I’ve been dying to post photos from @thebigfakewedding and today is the day! This event was seriously so much fun and I’m forever grateful for the amazing vendors I got to meet... and sad that I didn’t get to meet everyone there!! This STUNNING photo is by @blissmorephoto and y’all she is seriously talented. Obsessed with her work and her personality! @jbivphotography and @morgancaddellphoto were the two other insanely talented photographers there and you’ll be seeing some of their photos as well. Gonna try to keep myself from posting 9 billion times a day 😬 @merrimonwynne was magical and I’m counting down the days until I can return for another wedding! 💕
