Triad Wedding Planning/Design Services

DianaDigsDirt is a landscape design/build company assisting recently engaged couples with “GREEN” solutions for their wedding day. “Green” does not mean cheap, granola or tacky, simply, you are demonstrating a conscious effort to minimize individual carbon footprints. Fresh flowers can also be incorporated into “Green” Wedding Designs, adding special accents and touches not obtainable due to seasonal restraints.

DianaDigsDirt Wedding Services

  • Consulting-Designing-or Implementing of

Residential Landscape Wedding Ideas, creating an outdoor photogenic vignette for the bride and her maids reflecting colors, style, theme of the ceremony.

This service is for those wanting a personalized outdoor scene for wedding photography, usually at the couple’s home or residence where she is preparing for the ceremony with bridesmaids.

  • Consulting-Designing-Implementing of

Green” Wedding Decor, Centerpieces, etc, by analyzing bride and groom residential landscape or those of family members to determine the possibility to create from existing plant material. This would include, plant foliage, berries, blooms, twigs, and grass plumes. If additional “Green” decor is needed, Diana can suggest installing certain plants to later on provide what is needed and what will grow on the property. We can also discuss including actual food within centerpiece design.

   

Fruits, nuts, various leaves and vegetables may add a conversation piece to  your special day

  

 

  • Wedding Venue for Landscape Enhancements

If the Wedding Venue Location is perfect, but could use additional color, with the permission of the venue, additional potted plants could be brought in and later taken home by the couple or whomever makes the purchase. Below are fabulous arrangements for tropical themes. Outdoor pots come in an array of styles, shapes and colors, click here.

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Venue in the Piedmont Triad

Are you newly engaged and looking for the perfect outdoor wedding venue-magical, dreamy, ethereal, fairytale, or the garden of eden? Do these terms reflect how your day should be emulated in your wedding photography?

If you are visiting several wedding venues, ask to see photographs of the gardens about the time of your own wedding. Trees, shrubs, perennials and even grass will look different from your initial visit. Gardens are constantly evolving and completely changing color palettes (even the green family changes).

Many wedding venues provide outdoor structures, gazebos, arbors, pergolas, tents, covered porches (portico) or a veranda for the actual ceremony. Every bride has their own style and entitled to make suggestions by keeping silk flowers in their boxes. Several vines could have been selected to soften the gazebos below adding just green or another color. The silk vine below looks unnatural because vines do not grow perfectly around a column. If a green vine was installed and color was needed, small bouquets or even potted plants could have been attached, good for a “Green” Wedding.

Below is an example of fake flowers strung on a gazebo. Do you like this?

Many wedding venues provide pre-fabricated gazebos, a wonderful structure for wedding themes like, cottage-style or country. Some outdoor structures even have a Victorian feel.

Here is a smaller version located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Outdoor pergolas and structures will be included in your photographs, make sure every plant enveloping the site is blooming a neutral color so your photographs are in the same color palette.

Outdoor structures are built from various materials including, stone, wood, brick, wrought iron, PVC pipe or steel (like the one at Biltmore Estates).

  

Make sure you and your husband-to-be choose the perfect outdoor wedding venue for your special day. Think about structures, colors, materials, your color palette, plants on site and if sunlight may be an issue. You deserve your cinderella wedding!
