Outdoor Garden Wedding

I have absolutely loved my 2010 brides! This year has been about color & some elegant modern touches. This is one wedding that have been looking forward to since I first sat down with the bride, Leea. It has so many of my favorite things: flower types & combination, lots of bright colors, crystals, kissing balls, rose petals, outdoor location...just to name a few.

Congratulations Dan & Leea! I enjoyed designing your flowers to create the setting you had been dreaming about for so long!

Bride's bouquet with roses, mini calla lilies, freesia, dahlias, hydrangea & burpleurum.

Bridesmaids' bouquets....mini versions of the bridal bouquet only with green button mums replacing the hydrangea.

The ceremony at Evergreen Gardens. I designed flowers to put on Evergreen Garden's Arbor & shepherd poles.

I have been waiting for a couple years to do something creative with rose petals down the aisle. Thank you Leea!

Thank you unknown bride who was married the day before at Evergreen Gardens & left behind these beautiful arrangements! I added pink, orange, yellow & green flowers to these white oriental lilies. With Leea's colors added, they looked like they were part of the plan all along!

Both tall & short centerpieces were used on the dining tables. Tall silver candelabras with crystal strands added.

Lower centerpieces in mint julep cups. Hydrangea, dahlias, roses, mini gerber daisies, button mums & burpleurum.

Calla Lilly Flower Theme

The floral arrangements for this wedding were simple with mainly just calla lilies. Simple, elegant & classic is how I would describe them. I didn't get to see Michelle, the bride, that day but her parents were beaming & so happy when I met them with flowers for them to transport to Everett for the ceremony. I'm sure Michelle was more exited & beautiful bride! I can't wait to see some of the pictures Rachel Bayne took of the wedding day. Truly an adorable couple & I wish them the best as husband & wife!

Rain, Rain Go Away

Rain, Rain Go Away, don't you know there is a wedding today? Well, it didn't go away....but this outdoor wedding was still fun. (If you look close, you can actually see the rain pouring off the tent in the above picture.)
This wedding was full of gerber daisies and bright colors. You couldn't help but be cheerful. It was so much fun for me to design flower for yet another Roorda wedding. Congratulations Kevin & McKenzie! Thank you for letting me be part of your special day!

I love these bright cheerful colors. I can't wait to work with a similar palette again in a couple weeks.

My new favorite orange rose for the summer....Orange Unique. Each water tube was wrapped in green wire.

Also a new favorite rose....High & Mighty Looks like a garden rose!

This month has been full of weddings where the families have been tackling some DIY projects with the decor. This wedding was another example of it. I gave the bride a picture with this idea for the aisle. McKenzie gave it to her Aunt Renee & this was the final product. LOVE IT!

The bride's family also tackled the centerpieces. I'm always a fan of the wheat grass! They turned out great.
