Carither’s Wedding Flowers Featured at Summer Atlanta Wedding

We had the privilege of participating in Dustin and Christine Hawkin's wedding at the Gardens at Great Oaks. Here, we share some special moments from their Atlanta summer wedding that highlight the flowers we created for them as part of their memorable day. These beautiful photos of their Atlanta wedding and our wedding flowers are courtesy of Anna Shackleford, a local professional photographer from Atlanta. The wedding photos shared by Dustin and Christine illustrate the beautiful examples of the wedding bouquet, ceremony flowers, wedding party flowers, and the reception flowers. We worked with the couple on their flowers when they contacted us for a free wedding flower consultation through our exclusive wedding flower website. Christine was looking for a traditional Southern charm style that would match well with her outdoor wedding ceremony at this gorgeous Atlanta area wedding venue. Our wedding floral design team worked with Christine to create a pastel color palette that reflected the garden feel of the outdoor wedding venue. Gorgeous floral designs also highlighted the special outdoor settings that made up the ceremony area with an almost bohemian feel. Each wedding guest had a special floral name card that told them where they were seated at [...]

Wedding Fever

With its ideal weather and lush, natural floral landscapes, it’s no wonder that June weddings seem to be so popular. Have you ever wondered why a June wedding never goes out of style? Where did this tradition come from? Just like the saying “all roads lead to Rome” proclaims, the tradition of a June wedding can also be traced as far back as Ancient Rome. According to Ancient Roman myth, “Juno” was the goddess of weddings, and so, getting married in June was deemed lucky for the bride and groom. A June wedding also meant that if the wife conceived (immediately after the marriage), she would give birth before the next harvest, and thus, be well enough to work the fields come harvest time. With time these reasons, however fabricated they may be, fade into the background and June comes to symbolize romance and new beginnings. There are also an abundance of flowers in season for a June wedding. From alstroemerias to belles of Ireland, calla lilies, daisies, hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, and sunflowers, you’re sure to find the perfect flowers for your special day. If you’re planning a summer or fall wedding, Carithers Flowers in Atlanta offers more than just [...]

Choose Wedding Flowers from Carithers Flowers Award-Winning Designs

“Every rose is an autograph from the hand of God on his world about us.” - Theodore Parker The last Saturday in May unofficially marks “opening day” of wedding season, where more than 2 million couples get married and collectively spend about $72 billion every year in the United States. We think it's safe to say that wedding season has already started. As the weather warms up, take a stroll through a park or a meandering tour of a garden and you're likely to run into a giggling bridal party, a blushing bride, or a nervous groom. Flowers are one of the main focal points of a wedding. They serve to enhance a beautiful bride as she walks down the aisle, add color and dimension to a table arrangement, and colorfully accessorize a wedding cake. No wedding day is complete until it is solemnized with flowers. Reception centerpieces and ceremony arrangements turn an ordinary room into an extraordinary one. Carithers Flowers in Atlanta offers more than just beautifully designed floral bouquets and gifts. The company has a successful event design business and prepares floral arrangements and centerpieces for everything from corporate gatherings to weddings.
