Wedding Wednesday: Glamelia Bouquets

by Benjamin Keys

Our Wed on Canvas Bride, Ashley, had the most beautiful Glamelia bouquet which inspired this post!  I've pulled together a short gallery of photos to inspired from Ashley's bridal bouquet!  You might be thinking ... "what exactly IS a Glamelia bouquet?"  A Glamelia is basically a handmade single flower that is created using many petals.  From a little research, I learned that the Glamelia became a trend during the 1940s when Camelia's were very expensive blooms as a result of the war.  Florists would take petals from Gladiolus flowers and use them to build up a single Camelia flower.  (So that's where we get the oh so glamorous name :Gla-melia!)  Today, whether as a bridal bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, or even as a decor accent, the Glamelia look is simply gorgeous ... and sure to make a statement!

On Trend: The S-Curve Table

by Benjamin Keys

We were just recently painting at the wedding of a wedding planner.  And when a wedding planner is the bride you can expect the most PIN-worthy wedding!  One of our favorite details about the reception was her S-Curve table formations.  The reception was intimate with about 40 guests.  Two curved tables were set facing one another in the middle of the room with round table tops surrounding them.   This actually filled the room beautifully, giving it an interesting and welcoming feel.  Space is key in pulling off this formation, but when it works it adds the most creative touch!  I would love to hear thoughts from other wedding planners, photographers, and even guests who have enjoyed this creative seating arrangement!  Is this a LOVE or a LET GO?
