INQUIRE WITH THISTLE & DOT

Hi! It’s so great to meet you. I’m Jaime, founder and lead floral designer with Thistle & Dot. We are so happy you found us and are interested in our work! 

As you browse these weddings and events, know that your florals will be completely unique to anything out there because they will be designed with you close at heart.

My first meeting with Maddie and Paul was in my cold garage, over a Zoom call. Even without meeting them in person, I knew they were a super fun couple and I couldn't wait to design for their wedding.

The color palette for their wedding was soft sage, aloe and dusty blue. The bouquets consisted of elegant and traditional flowers-white roses, white ranunculus and light blue delphinium- mixed with fun white scabiosa, blue thistle, and white hypericum berries. Soft, elegant and textural was the goal, and I think the flowers fit perfectly with Maddie's gorgeous wedding dress and the soft wedding party colors.

My very favorite part to design was the mantel above the fireplace at The Atrium. The mantel is long, and we felt it needed a beautiful, soft accent to pull all the florals together. We placed a large, framed engagement photo in the middle and then designed around that with coordinating flowers and soft greenery.

Roxy and Levi's original wedding date was in March of 2020, but we all know that COVID had other plans. I have never seen someone so calm and so at peace with all the turmoil and changes as Roxy. 

Roxy wanted warm neutral tones in her wedding flowers, so we chose to use dusty rose and creamy white flowers. Since the wedding was being held in December, we added in some lovely winter greenery to tie the neutral tones in to a winter-not-holiday warm and cozy feel. We used several different rose varieties, plus classic white ranunculus to lay the neutral foundation. We then added a variety of textural layers including blue thistle, the winter greenery, eucalyptus, white dried strawflower, bleached fern, and (my personal favorite)fuzzy bleached bunny tails.

Roxy requested a floral accent piece for her navy hat, and we were happy to oblige! So much fun to design, and we love when a bride really wants to add in something so fun and slightly non-traditional for a few photos.

ROXI AND LEVI

Hope and Evan envisioned a warm, inviting boho-style wedding filled with dried and fresh flowers, friends and family. This wedding was filled with personal touches, from bottles collected by family members to the photo backdrop that Hope painted herself.

We chose to use a variety of warm-toned flowers and grasses to bring the boho wedding to life. Of course, we used Pampas grass, which is a boho wedding staple, but we added eucalyptus, dried hydrangea, dried protea, toffee roses, bleached fern, strawflowers, blue thistle and tuberose, among other fall dried and fresh materials. Hope wanted streaming ribbons, so we chose soft velvet ribbons to bring in the beautiful autumn feel.

Instead of an arch installation, Hope and Evan chose to use kombucha bottles from their home filled with pampas grass and other coordinating dried florals. These were placed at the base of the ceremony arch and then moved to the photo booth backdrop.

We placed bottles of varying sizes, shapes and colors on the reception tables, all filled with bits of fun textures and fall colors to bring everything together. Behind the head table, we designed two smaller installations to hang on either side of the neon sign and grid background.

I met Chelsea at my very first wedding as Thistle and Dot, and we clicked immediately. She is vibrant and fun and is so SO talented. She asked me to design an arrangement for her gender reveal party and I felt so honored to do so!
