Southern Bride & Groom is excited to share some of our favorite photos, including many not seen in print, from the floral designers featured in our 2016 magazine. In this shoot, Fresh Affairs sets a wedding table with a hand-crafted fresh flower-encrusted linen that sweeps across the tabletop to the patio floor for an opulent and sophisticated statement. The unencumbered glass top over the flowers opens a panoramic view of the glimmering lake at the Angus Barn Pavilion. Such an imaginative floral masterpiece could serve as a wedding altar before it becomes the reception centerpiece!
