Just wanted to share a couple images from a wedding this weekend. I'll post more pictures later. The bride, Chelsea, has such a truly sweet personality, I think the flowers represent her well! Mostly white flowers with touches of soft pink & chartreuse green at the ceremony....white, chartreuse green, shades of pink at the reception.
All arrangements at the ceremony had a garden feel to them. This tied in nicely with the reception flowers at Evergreen Gardens.

Flowers are on my black metal arbor & matching stands.
I searched everywhere to find containers that would fit on this tiny window ledge. I was so excited when I found them because not only did they fit in the window, they were black also! Black details were incorporated throughout the wedding.

Elegance, Romance, Candle Light!

Not only did this wedding have all that (elegance, romance, candle light), it also had some great modern elements as well. Unfortunately I did not have time to photograph them, so I'll have to post more pictures later when I get them from the photographer, Ean Perkins.

I had so much fun working with this family again as now it was their daughter's turn to get married. Kylee & Darrel chose Evergreen Gardens for their ceremony site & the Ferndale Event Center for their reception. Everything went great, looked great....only if I could have calmed the wind! Oh well, I'd rather have the wind instead of the rain or 80+ degrees for this garden ceremony.
Congratulations you guys! I loved working on your flowers. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day.
Red Rose petals were added on the stage right before the ceremony. The wind that day did not allow for me to put them down when we were setting up. More red rose petals were added down the side of the aisles right before the ceremony. This must have looked beautiful for the ceremony with the candles lit, red rose petals...elegant!

Outdoor Garden Wedding

This weekend I was able to set up a small wedding at my favorite outdoor location near my home, Evergreen Gardens. The colors of the floral arrangements at this wedding really grabbed your attention & looked beautiful with all the natural beauty the surrounding gardens provide.
Working with the Bride, Gretchen, was a treat for me! We both have a love and appreciation for plants which I think is the main reason her wedding was so much fun for me. She was knowledgeable about flowers, very organized, & willing to let me use my judgement on her flowers.
Congratulations Gretchen & Ryan! You had a beautiful June wedding. I plan on visiting you at work Gretchen next time I need some plants for my yard!
Half of the centerpieces were a collection of glass jars the bride collected. I incorporated simple groupings of flowers in them & set them on a "tree cookie" the bride & groom made. Each centerpiece was just a little bit different. The rest of the centerpieces were groupings of herbs the couple grew. These also were placed on tree cookies.

The aisle for the ceremony consisted of simple arrangements in mason jars. Each arrangement hung from a shepherd hook.
