#projectbloomatl

We have one exciting creative project ahead of us for the year. AJF+D is going to "floral tag" iconic places of Atlanta. Our goal is for our fellow Atlantans to remember why they chose to make this city their hometown. There are so many wonderful places in our city that we want to highlight and accent in a floral way. Throughout the year we will randomly let you know through our Instagram stories where we are so you can follow along or even come join! Follow our custom hashtag at #projectbloomatl to see more pictures of our floral tags and finished projects. 

Side note:: This might be one of my favorite projects I've ever done. :P

The wonderful Natalie Jackson of 4 Corners Photography has decided to bring her talents the this fun project and capture each moment we create. Below you will find our first stop right next door to our very own studio space. We believe it used to be a little girl's dollhouse so we thought it was simply perfect to "floral tag" with spring blooms. Enjoy this inspirational bloom project and make sure to be on the lookout for the next one!

Spring Watercolor Wedding Inspiration

A palette of soft pinks, blush and shades of orange embodies the softness and romance of the spring season. Watercolor details and blush gowns make this perfect for spring. We partnered up with some amazing vendors to make this spring inspiration shoot come to life. Hope you enjoy!

This ombre flower arrangement is one of our favorite parts of this inspiration shoot. Soft colors that blend together to create a breathtaking centerpiece that is truly unique.

Behind the Blue Door

Hello flower friends! 

Today we are showing off our beloved studio space where all the magic happens behind the blue door! If you haven't had the chance to visit us in our studio lately, you will find a few new things! We just finished a brand refresh and updated our logo, signage, website and many other things. We feel it better represents who we are as well as the style of client we love to work with.  We could not be more excited to share it with you! 

Our studio is where we build friendships, get inspired, build things with our hands, create, entertain, work, and play (with a glass of wine in hand of course). As a creative it is so important that we surround ourselves in an environment that is conducive to creativity. We create and inspire other people to create.

Things you will find in our studio:

A moodboard for inspiration

A coffee maker because who can live and work without coffee

A collection of photobooth strips from past wedding events - our favorite souvenir!

Plants for oxygen

Design magazines to keep us fresh in the design world

And of course, ALWAYS a bucket of flowers!!

Our studio is the first place we meet our clients and from there we build budding relationships that enable our ideas to grow throughout the entire design process. Our clients are the most important aspect of our business and we aim to please!

2015 was a big year for us. We were published twice in the Celebration Society Magazine, once for a fairytale wedding at The Atlanta History Center, and once for a styled shoot at The Hay House in Macon, Georgia. We also were voted Best of Weddings on The Knot, which shows our commitment to our clients and how we always strive to put them first.  We hosted our first ever AJ Vendor Dinner in our studio, and got to spend the evening hanging out with and getting to know some amazing Atlanta wedding vendors. Our workshop series at West Elm Ponce City Market was launched in December with the first one being a fabulous wreath making class. Stay tuned for more workshops coming up at West Elm! We participated in our very first Big Fake Wedding at The Atlanta History Center, which was so much fun! We joined the fabulous Black Sheep Bride organization, a wedding network that connects socially conscious brides with vendors who care about giving back. And last but not least, we created and designed more weddings than ever last year. As a result of that, we had the chance to curate some amazing vendor relationships for the future. So as you can see, there's quite a lot that goes on behind our little blue door. 

Stop by and say hello!
