Katherine & Jonathan

Despite the drizzle, yesterday's wedding at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham was beautiful. Katherine & Jonathan were good sports and kept the wedding outside in the beautiful courtyard where the colors really popped with the neighborhood trees in the backdrop. Congratulations you two!

Bride's Bouquet & one of the Bridesmaids' bouquets. Despite how they look in the pictures, the bridesmaids' bouquets with the brown ribbon really were smaller than the bride's bouquet!

Apricot roses, white hydrangea, green mini cymbidium orchids, dahlias, sage & seeded eucalyptus.

Fall At Lairmont Manor

We had a little bit of a break from the fall rain for this beautiful wedding at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham. The wind blew really hard....but can't complain about the 73+ degrees & sun for this outdoor ceremony & reception! A very beautiful & sincerely sweet bride, groom & families made this wedding fun for me. Congratulations Serena & Taylor!

If you like the color orange, then that means you're a creative person. Maybe that is why I LOVE working with orange flowers. I was so excited when Melissa met with me & told me she wanted orange flowers. I probably had a huge smile on my face. Melissa & Kalen are an adorable couple & I had so much fun meeting with them & designing their flowers. Congratulations you guys!

I had to leave the ceremony flowers in the holding bay at the Golf & Country Club since they had to close down part of the golf couse a couple hours later for the ceremony. The two arrangements were for the front of the ceremony site & the box held orange rose petals that they then scattered down the sides of the aisle.

Dark Red + Truffle Brown + Bronze....Oh so rich & elegant!

This small wedding was a treat for me! The brides vision was elegant & rich with color. Natasha wanted simple bouquets of red dahlias. So I started off working on this wedding by heading to a local dahlia farm to pick 200+ stems of blood red dahlias. Congratulations Natasha & Howard!

Bride's bouquet had the addition of burgundy mini gerber daisies.

A total of Eight Bridesmaids carried these dahlia bouquets!Two of the below ceremony arrangements set on the ground in front of an arbor with a thick carpet of red rose petals down the aisle.

I always suggest colored linens to brides if it works in their budget. Here is proof why! Absolutely beautiful, the color is amazing and just wouldn't be the same with white linens. A very rich & elegant look.
