Glamorous Pink & Green Summer Wedding

One of the most anticipated weddings of the summer hosted 350 guests at the renowned St. Regis Atlanta. The focal point of the cocktail hour was an abundant display of modern glass candleholders and light pink peony and garden roses presented in the chateau vase on acrylic risers. The entire presentation gave gorgeous foreground to a stunning 12′ wide visual behind the built-in bar.

Love is in the details and we didn’t miss an opportunity to embellish lounge groupings, cocktail tables, and even the ladies restroom with pretty pink garden roses.

Guests were seated in a mix of estate and round tables and featured a lovely display of pink and green floral.  The two 40′ estate tables featured a layered look of tall clear glass vases with floating candles and a low striking green foundation of clear glass vessels filled with vibrant green mini green hydrangea and viburnum. The round tables were adorned with low floral in a glass vessel filled with mono bloom floral arrangements of pink garden roses and blush peonies. A trio of crystal candlesticks with white taper candles and clear glass votive completed the look.


A stately 40’ head table was draped in textured linens and featured a low collection of glass vessels filled with mono-bloom floral of blush garden roses and blush peonies that ran the entire 40′ of the table.

Even more impressive was the 5 MILES worth of ribbon that our team used to create a DYNAMIC statement above the dance floor.

Team Spotlight: Principal Designer, Chris Macksey of Topher Mack Floral & Events

Christopher Macksey, Principal Designer of event firm Topher Mack Floral & Events in Atlanta, GeorgiaTopher Mack Floral & Events (TM) is an Atlanta based full-service floral and event design firm who stands behind the mission of doing what we love, with people that we love, for people that we love.   That love for floral and special events bloomed early for Topher Mack owner, Christopher Macksey, who spent his youth in the garden with his mother and grandmothers and his teenage years working as a florist.  Departing from the traditional path of a college degree, Macksey followed a direct path toward his passion by pursuing floral design full time. In his early career, Macksey blossomed on the Jersey Shore doing container gardens, created fresh flowers for summer homes on the beach, and worked at a floral shop that specialized in funeral and weddings before moving to New York.  

In addition to beautifully designed weddings and social events that took place at landmark NYC properties, Macksey did floral styling for Bergdorf Goodman photo shoots, posh Manhattan hotels, and flagship stores on 5th Avenue.  He was also earned the opportunity to make his boyish dreams come true by styling flowers for THE QUEEN…and by Queen, of course, I mean Madonna.

Centerpiece Ideas from Atlanta's Topher Mack Floral & EventsLured by the Southern hospitality, Macksey moved to the Atlanta, Georgia and began managing the floral department for one of the peach state’s well-known design companies.  He transitioned to design sales for nine years producing a mix of weddings, social, non-profit, corporate, and celebrity events before starting his own company, Topher Mack Floral & Events in 2017.  Macksey humbly attributes his success to the great perspective he received by working in all phases of the floral and design industry. This type of work ethic is what rapper Drake meant when he said: “started from the bottom and now my whole team is here”.
