8/29/09 Wedding

I enjoyed adding the "Bling" for Jessica in the gerber daisies. This was a very simple wedding, & I liked how the little details turned out. I am always surprised at how different each wedding turns out. Congratulations Klayton & Jessica!
A Bridesmaid's Bouquet.
Crystals were incorporated into the center of the gerber daisies & on the stem wrap.

Simple, yet detailed corsages. Each had a crystal in the center of the mini gerber diasy & lily grass was "looped" & tied on the stem secured by a pink corsage pin. Matching bouts. were done with black ribbon.

8/1/09 Wedding

Nicole Medcalf of Medcalf Photography kindly gave me these images to post on my blog from Eric & Crissy's wedding earlier this month. In the last minute mad dash to get everything delivered & set up, I was not able to photograph any of the personal arrangements. So thank you Nicole! Now you can see some professional photographs of the wedding.

Garden Wedding

I don't know where to begin with this wedding! We had so much fun setting up this wedding, when we were done...we didn't want to leave. I wish I could have been invisible & watched this whole day from the beginning to the end. The setting for the wedding was amazing. Allie chose to get married in front of the garden at her parents home in Ferndale. Allie chose cantelope as her main color and have accents of white and a soft touch of pink. When I saw my flowers come off the truck this week for Allie's wedding, the colors were perfect, some even an exact match to the bridesmaids' dresses. I couldn't wait to get started. Congratulations Josh & Allie! You had a beautiful wedding day. I enjoyed working with you.
Not shown are the mass tangerine orange & yellow rose petals that the wedding coordinator, Anne Rasmussen, added before the ceremony. Look for more pictures later to see the petals.Allie's dress had a vintage feel to it. I suggested the addition of a broach to her bouquet to carry on the vintage theme of her dress.Lynne from Lynne Baron Design provided this amazing broach.

8/23/09 Sunflower Wedding

I didn't give myself enough time to photography todays wedding, but did manage to get a shot of one of the bridesmaid bouquets. Linda chose sunflowers as one of her main flowers & grew a lot of them herself in her garden to use in the ceremony & reception at Lairmont Manor. Hydrangea, lisianthus, yellow mini cymbidium orchids, petite sunflowers, rosemary & mint were used in the bridal party bouquets.

Garden Wedding

Michelle & Ben chose Evergreen Gardens for their wedding location & reception. Michelle wanted her flowers to also have a garden feel to them. How did I do? I really love the colors Michelle chose, I can't wait to see how they look in her wedding pictures. Congratulations you guys! Thank you for letting me design your personal flowers.

Roses, mini cymbidium orchids, lisianthus, hypericum berry, scabiosa & seeded eucalyptus.

Calla lillies, freesia, mini cymbiduim orchids, roses & seeded eucalyptus.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

To photograph Michelle's bouquets, I decided they should be photographed in the garden. The backdrop is a pond that my husband & I built way back when I had just graduated from High School. Sorry, I'm not telling how many years ago that was! Lets just leave it at "way back". I have them setting on a bench that we also built together for one of my school projects when I was in college studying for my Landscape Design Degree. Wow how time has flown since then!

Red & Turquoise?

Most people would never think to put Red & Aqua together for their wedding colors...right? But Crissy did & it turned out beautiful...see for yourself. Crissy's color scheme was inspired by a wedding she found online. What I loved most about this bride is that she wanted something unique, different, yet elegant. I've posted a few pictures, but the best part of the wedding, the bridal bouquet & the bridesmaids' bouquets I did not have time to photograph. That often happens in the dash to get flowers loaded & delivered. Look for them to be posted later when I can get pictures from the photographer.
Bright, bold red arrangements hung from every other pew in the church. Dahlias & mini gerber diasies made up these arrangements.Dramatic centerpieces on the head table. Submersible lights were used so the water in the vases would "glow". For someone who wants height & simple centerpieces on their tables at a lower cost...why not have orchids, calla lillies or other flower inside the vase with out an arrangement on the top.
