Simply Elegant Floral Designs becomes Meristem Floral

Simply Elegant Floral Designs becomes Meristem Floral

Big changes are blooming! Simply Elegant Floral Designs has a new name, new brand, new website and more. After much thought and reflection, I knew it was time to rename my business to better align with the brides and clients I am now working with. So today we launch Meristem Floral.

Christina + Andy | Durham, North Carolina Floral Designer

Christina and Andy were one of Ashlee's clients prior to joining our team last year, so when their wedding arrived in September it was extra special to work on their florals!

Married at First Presbyterian Church in Durham with a reception following at The Cotton Room, Christina and Andy wanted a lush, organic garden feel for all of their florals. Our favorite detail? Perhaps the individual bud vases that served as place cards (and favors!) for each guest -- these coupled with candlelight from the tapered candles on brass candlesticks made the entire Cotton Room glow.

Below are our favorites from Grain and Compass!

Ashley + John | Durham, NC Wedding Floral Designer

A classic all white bouquet with touches of Weston Farms southern magnolia, succulents, garden roses and locally sourced tuberrose and dahlia set the stage perfectly for Ashley and John's August wedding at Alazarin Gallery and The King's Daughter's Inn.

Below are some of our favorites from Zoe Pictures!

Erin + Chase | Durham, NC Wedding Floral Designer

Though usually a lovely time in North Carolina, this Fall the weather has been full of rain, rain, rain. Erin and Chase's wedding day was no different, but this couple fully embraced the moisture and still had the best day ever! The two were married on Erin's childhood homestead in Durham.
