Elegance at Chateau des Fleures Open-Air Castle

Updated: Jan 7

Some venues – especially destinations amid garden settings – have so much natural beauty in their landscape that you may only need florals on a more minimalistic scale to enhance the space. Others are a blank canvas, with the versatility to take on your unique vision. In this styled photo shoot captured by Ashlynn Miller Photography, we presents a whimsical, garden-like design that we are known for.

Chateau des Fleures' open-air castle and the brick architecture offer a fresh canvas and the ability to embrace any color palette while exuding the charm of a country estate.

The floral designers accentuated each space with the whimsical, garden-like arrangements that are right within her wheelhouse.

At the outdoor chapel, a gazebo marks the altar. Greenery draped along the gazebo’s beams and entrance brings an elegant garden feel to the space while accentuating the unique outdoor structure.

We wanted to create a design that evoked the transition from summer to fall through the use of local, seasonal blooms and timeless wedding flowers. Brightly hued pink and mauve dahlias paired with soft, romantic lisianthus; blush and cream Quicksand and Playa Blanca roses; and ruffled peach David Austin Roald Dahl English Shrub roses come together in a playful, sweet design. The depth, warmth and dimension that copper amaranthus and textural sedum add to the arrangements hint at the coming of autumn. Teacup Floral's signature loose, organic style results in a lush effect.

The majority of these flowers were sourced locally in North Carolina and Virginia – a foundational element of Teacup's operations. We are passionate about supporting local farmers and growers.

Teacup Floral's romantic creations perfectly complement the ethereal New York Bride & Groom gown that model – and middle school teacher – Lexie wears, along with her own personal jewels. Lexie’s romantic hair and makeup by Versatility Hair Studio and Dark Hearts Makeup echo the mauve and pink tones of Teacup Floral’s florals.
