The Free Wedding II

unique wedding bouquets

I think it would be hard to do a feature on The Free Wedding and not mention florist extraordinaire, Amy Osaba. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Amy on several events, and I can say hands down she is one the best florists Atlanta has seen in a long time. Her work is unique and original, and she is one of the hardest working individuals you’ll ever meet. Now back to Joy..

Oh, the flowers.  I’m so in love with the flowers!  Amy Osaba rocked them. Kaitlyn’s more on the hippie side of things so we wanted them to be more organic and hand-picked looking…which we happen to love anyway.  I just gave her some direction and she ran with it!




The oh-so-stylish Sid Mashburn chose the seersucker suit for Sam. Guys, if you’re ever in doubt of what to wear, Sid and the fellas in his shop are the men to ask. They know what’s cool and what’s even better is how un-pretentious they are about it.



Ashley, the brilliant designer behind Dolci Odille, created all the paper goods you’ll see scattered throughout this entire event. From the letterpress invitations to handmade confetti packets, Ashley designed every detail as a reflection of Sam and Kaitlyn and their love for each other.




We’re just getting started for the day, so stay tuned for more eye candy and details coming up…

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
