Weddings & Special Moments
Please visit our photo section below
to get a feel for our flair and flexibility.
We create a small number of bespoke weddings and events each year–local and destination. We love working right alongside you and those helping you plan your wedding to make it just what you want it to be.
How Far in Advance Should I Book?
About 6-12 months in advance. Decide on your venues (church, synagogue, reception venue) and who will perform your ceremony, then contact us!
What is the Process?
Once you have made initial contact with Mary Louise or a member of the MLCHgarden design team, we schedule an in person appointment at an agreed upon location. We like for this to be a personalized process so that we have all details of your wedding covered. You may want to invite whomever is helping you plan your wedding. Once you have decided on a date, we will confirm the date and move forward with the planning process. We want to work with you on your ideas for bouquets, installations (wreaths, floral chandeliers, arbor, etc.) so that you will look back at your photos and videos pleased with the selections we chose together.If you don’t feel the creativity flowing we will help you with suggestions and inspiration.
We have a penchant for designs that have not been used over and again.
We’d like to work with you on coordinating the wedding ceremony and reception…
Mary Louise and her team now offer event coordination as a service in conjunction with our floral design services AND as a separate service. Please contact Mary Louise at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a consultation for coordination needs.
How Much do Wedding Florals Cost?
Budgets for wedding/event flowers vary. Our basic wedding package begins at $2,500. We work with you on deciding an appropriate budget range. Our goal is to make our bride and her family happy.
What Venues Do You Suggest?
Venues we have collaborated with are Augusta Country Club, Sanderlin’s Horse Farm, Pine Knoll, The River Room, Marbury Center, Augusta Museum of History, Quinney Oaks Plantation, Palmetto Terrace (North Augusta, SC), Monteluce Winery and Estates(Dahlonega, GA).

Garden Walks are great for conjuring up landscape/garden design ideas.
Mary Louise assists you in selecting plants that will offer beauty and function.
We call these “pay back plants”— your return on investment in flowers, foliage and food!
