The Ali's: An Atlanta Affair

Hisham Ali (Groom) ATLANTA, GA
Hisham and I (Shaquia) met in Atlanta as graduate students at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Our wedding was held on Sunday, September 30, 2018, in Piedmont Park at the Greystone building. As graduate students, it was important for us to have a beautiful and budget-friendly wedding. Lucky for us, we're both engineering Ph.D. candidates and were able to pull off many time-intensive DIY projects include key wedding elements such as our ceremony arbor, cake stand, and of! We decided on the classic color palette of blush, burgundy, green, and gold...just because it always looks so beautiful when photographed together. FiftyFlowers made it so easy to select the appropriate flowers ... based on color and budget. It was particularly awesome to come across the blush and burgundy flower pack. The garden roses from this pack were by far the stand out components of our floral features. At the last minute, we were notified by FiftyFlowers that a component (carnations) of our order was no longer available, but we received replacements that sufficiently substituted what we were lacking. The flowers were safely packaged, arrived on time (Thursday), and remained beautiful throughout our Sunday wedding. I remember staying up until the wee hours of the morning of my wedding making sure everything was just as I wanted. The quality of the flowers we received made the job much easier than it would have been otherwise. The flowers really contributed to the beauty of that day and the memories forever sealed in our photos. Shaquia-Idlett Ali Show more

Flowers Used for Hisham Ali's Arrangements

El Aleli Sweetheart Pink Flower ( 5 Bunches or 50 Stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

These flowers were used for our wedding arbor and they were the perfect flower to contrast the roses, yet stay within our color palette! Sensitive to rough handling so be careful during transport!

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

We needed so much greenery to complete our look, so we ended up buying a bit more later on but the salal was a key feature of all of our centerpieces.

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Boutonnieres, Other

Definitely my favorite flowers of all. The garden roses bloomed beautifully! A few stems went a long way in all the bouquets. Definitely my best purchase.
