Meet Dylan and Wesley, Afloral’s 2016 Submit Your Wedding Contest winners.  Stationed 2000 miles from her wedding venue, this DIY bride set to work on creating a dream wedding filled with friends, family and faux flowers from Afloral.com.

My husband is stationed in San Diego, so we had the fun challenge of planning our Minneapolis wedding remotely.   It would have been really hard to coordinate with a florist to achieve the exact look we were going for, so I was thrilled when I realized that I could achieve the exact look I wanted by using Afloral and personally selecting each flower.

I featured peonies, dahlias and succulents in the bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces, with shades of pink and peach to contrast against the light blue bridesmaids dresses.

Our wedding was inside a magical glass dome on top of the Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis.   I wanted to have an indoor-outdoor feel and the natural light brought out the vibrancy of the flowers.

I also created a 2-foot tall floral letter monogram for our seating card table, and our guests loved it!  This floral letter was the caveat to my business, Begonia Rose Co., where I create silk floral letters, mobiles, and chandeliers for weddings and nurseries.

Using Afloral for our wedding was one of our best wedding-planning decisions.  It gave us peace of mind and an amazing value that didn’t compromise our vision.
