Landscape with some modern elelements

Some people don't know I design residential landscapes for people in my local area. I really enjoy working with homeowners & hopefully my passion for plants rubs off on some of them! Recently I've scaled back a lot on my landscape work with wedding business expanding, as well as my family. (Currently I am watching my belly expand!)

This week I finished up a landscape plan that was so much fun to create for a couple in Lynden. They wanted touches of some modern elements in their landscape plan. We did this through plant selections, hydrapressed slab pavers & gravels. They will be installing the landscape themselves, so I look forward to driving by their home & seeing things progress! Here is their landscape plan.

Hope of Spring

The wedding that we set up today was such a cheerful wedding. The bride chose daffodils, an early spring flower as one of her main flowers. I'm sure all of their guests from the local area will have spring fever for the next week as we have still not seen spring....and it's March! Enjoy these pictures & if you're planning a wedding of your own, maybe you'll get some ideas.
Congratulations Kevin & Kayla! I really enjoyed designing your flowers & working with you.

Kissing Ball

Arrangements for the windows at the church. The bride's parents built them and grew the grass in them for the Bride & Groom. Tiny detail...notice the initials branded into the side of the container!

Reception at Lynden Fairgrounds Rotary Building
I love how the mantle turned out. Most people want candles and greenery on the mantle, so it was fun to do something a little bit different.

They had lots of guests, so we broke up the mass of tables by doing a couple different centerpieces.

Simple, but very cute!

Dave & Shannon

My cousin Dave & his beautiful wife Shannon got married this weekend. They lucked out and had great weather for their wedding & pictures. Shannon chose a classic color theme...white, black & red. You can never go wrong with these great colors.
Bride's Bouquet

Bridesmaids wore black dresses and carried a bouquet of white roses.
All white flowers on some of my black metal rental items. A white runner blanketed with real red rose petals completed the look for the ceremony. Candles in the windows also added to the romantic & elegant theme.
