Typically a feature of corporate floral arrangements, branches have made their way into contemporary weddings. “The skeletal pattern of the magnolia branch, and delicate silhouette of the magnolia buds, brings an architectural aesthetic to a wedding arrangement,” says event stylist Amelia Johnson, owner of Bespoke Social.
“Naked branches bring a structural element and asymmetrical balance to wedding styling, which is gaining popularity. Branches add texture and, when juxtaposed against delicate florals, they give a romantic and rich feel to a floral landscape.”
Our highlight from the day? When Erin Holland, Moet & Chandon Stakes Day ambassador, stunned the crowd as she entered the room singing Jube by Klingande, and proceeded to pour bottle after bottle of Moet & Chandon onto a champagne tower—quite the moment!
