Mayesh & Artistry Designs Group at TSE’s Wedding Galleries

Barb OehlerkingDuring the TSE 2012 show, we were involved with The Special Event’s Wedding Galleries as we sponsored Barb Oehlerking of Artistry Designs Group by providing her with wholesale flowers.  Again, as The Special Event was my first show, I had no idea what to expect.  I was BLOWN away!  The creativity of all the galleries was amazing and I will share some pictures in the near future, but think of everything from Buddha to chicken coops! 

I loved Barb’s vision so much that I thought an interview was in order.  So please watch for the interview early next week.  I did take my own photos, but I was able to get my hands on professional pics from  Limelight Photography

The Artistry Designs Group’s gallery was split up by season – Summer, Winter, Fall, and Spring.  Continue down to get all the details by season …. enjoy wedding and event inspiration at its best!

Filled with French tulips, hydrangea, roses, dusty miller and sweat peas, one couldn’t help to feel warm in this wintery setting.  The bar was super “cool” because of how the lip of the counter was lighted.  Love it!

This is what you first see when you walked into Barb’s gallery.  And YES, that is real sand on the floor.  No detail was left untouched.  This scene was filled with driftwood (this must be a trend because I’m seeing it everywhere), hydrangea, dendrobium orchids, sea shells, star fish, and silver dollar branches.

For all you Twilight fans, does this table remind you of anything?  Edward and Bella’s wedding ceremony!  I heard a woman talk about the linens and those are the actual linen’s used for the Breaking Dawn reception.  Even if you are not a Twilight fan, you can surely appreciate the wedding in the movie, it such a beautiful setting that is will surely create its own trends, as depicted in photos below.  The hanging wisteria are silk blooms, but I believe everything else is fresh – lavender roses, antique green hydrangea, and waxflower.  Last but least, and I couldn’t get a good picture – the ground was covered in bark pieces to give the feel that you were actually outside in the middle of the woods.  Swoon!

Last, but not least the fall table scene.  Dark fabrics, gilded gold peices, candlelight mixed with dark red blooms.  The fresh cut floral line-up included roses, garden roses, mini callas, cymbidiums, and antique hydranges.
