FauxReal Flowers Sets the Tone for Sailboat Elopement 

If you love nature and the outdoors, you may also be looking for NC wedding vendors who focus on the planet and incorporate practices like “Leave no trace”.  FauxReal Flowers brought this Pastel at Sea elopement to life with the smallest footprint. All floral arrangements made by FauxReal are synthetic flowers, making them re-useable and sustainable. This eco-friendly florist transformed the sailboat’s mast into a pillar of pinks and greens in a sea of blue; featuring roses, wisteria and eucalyptus. The eco conscious floral arrangements at the ship’s bow were fixed loosely and moved with the boat and the wind to add a magical and dreamy element straight out of a fairy tale.

Plush Party Rentals

American Party Rentals elevated the elegance of the setting by contributing gold plates and cutlery. They also brought beautiful pink glassware – each party rental item worked in harmony with the color palette and style of the elopement. Accent pillows from Petal & Oak turned the sailboat into a plush oasis for the couple to lay and dine in comfort.
