This past weekend I was able to set up a wedding at a beautiful outdoor location in the Ferndale/Lynden area...Evergreen Gardens.

Unfortunately it rained, but they have a wonderful covered area that the ceremony & reception could take place in. These images do not do the flowers justice, but they really did look great. The wedding flowers were mainly red & orange, with a touch of cobalt blue delphinium. The arbor below is Evergreen Garden's that I was able to incorporate the fresh flowers onto. The bride and groom had a small table that they set inside it to sign their marriage liscense.
The thing I enjoyed the most about this wedding, is that the the bride specifically wanted nothing to be exactly the same. The end result was really great, I wish I had thought to take pictures! The corsages & boutonierres were all different combinations of flowers in red & orange. Even the bridesmaid bouquets were each arranged slightly different. I definately would do this again.

Soft & Elegant

Sarah Button and Bryn DeVries chose a soft, elegant color pallet for their wedding. We had lots of compliments on their colors as we set up their wedding at 3rd CRC in Lynden. Notice some of the details on the bouquet wraps!

This weekend was busy! Each wedding I did I used lots and lots of dahlias! One of my favorite flowers, the dahlias are in season and very affordable. Leela wanted all dahlias in her bouquet with a touch of stephanotis and greenery. You can't tell from my photograph, but the stephanotis all had a rhinestone in the center. Also, I incorporated rhinestones on the stem wrap of her bouquet. These small details sparkled great for her outdoor wedding in the apple orchard at Hovander Park.

This picture Leela emailed me. Thanks Leela!

Memory Arrangement

I often design arrangements for weddings where the bride & groom want remember loved ones who have passed away. I've done candles, single stem flowers, & arrangements most often. Sheri had a great idea for her memory arrangement: a single stem calla lily for each grandparent who had passed away. It was an elegant & tasteful touch to their ceremony.

Outdoor Elegance

Alisha chose purple & bright green flowers for her wedding. The fun colors are bright and contrasting, yet they were really elegant for her outdoor wedding. The above picture is of her aisle. The hydrangea in the urns were very elegant. Right before the ceremony, a thick carpet of white rose petals were added. If Alisha sends me pictures, I will post them asap! I know it was a beautiful aisle!

The centerpieces were very fun to design. When you went to smell the flowers, you would get a yummy scent of the limes. Thank goodness there were only 12 centerpieces....I sliced 90 limes!!! FYI - These vases are one of my rental items.

This picture shows one of the bride & groom chairs.

Alisha chose to rent one of the 5' metal wedding trees. Shown on her tree are hydrangea, roses, cymbidium orchids, crystals & candles.
