All images below courtesy of Tiffany Burke Photography. Tiffany is such a talented photographer!

'Orange Unique' roses, white mini calla lilies, white hydrangea & green mini cymbidium orchids made up the bride's bouquet

Green pomanders or kissing balls, were attached to the chairs down the aisle for the ceremony. They were then transferred indoors to the dance area & used on the mantle after the ceremony.

"So many people commented on the gorgeous flowers, and they were wonderful. You did a beautiful job and we really enjoyed working with you." - Judy (Mother of Bride)

These are some really fun photos I received from Tiffany Burke Photography. I love how she took so many creative photographs of the bridal bouquet & bridesmaids. If the flower pictures are this fun, I'm sure Sofie & Dayn have an AMAZING photo album!

"Thank you again for all your wonderful work. The flowers were PERFECT!" - Sofie

6/5/2010 Ryan & Gretchen

I've been getting some beautiful images lately from photographers as I am working on updating my website with new photos. I am always appreciative of many photographers generosity!

Gretchen & Ryan's wedding was located at Evergreen Gardens last June. The type of flowers & greenery chosen for their flowers added to the garden feel they wanted for their wedding. They grew lots of herbs that we used for some of the centerpieces & placed in random locations. It turned out to be such a fun wedding to work on.

These beautiful images were taken by the bride & grooms relative! All images courtesy of Timothy at luskSHOT Photography. Thanks Timothy!

"What a pleasure to have you arrange our flowers on our special day! Everything looked wonderful - from the ceremony jars to my bouquet. We received countless comments on how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you for all your hard work!"

8/22/10 Dan & Leea

A few more images to share with you from Dan & Leea's wedding. An article was recently published about their wedding in Northsound Couture Magazine. These are beautiful images of their wedding courtesy of Stephanie Stremler Photography.

Leea was a lot of fun to work with and has such a sweet & genuine personality. She has a huge love for flowers & from the get go she had a clear vision of how she wanted her wedding flowers. I enjoyed working with her to achieve her vision. She recently sent me a thank you card.
"Kim, Thank you so much for all your hard work with the flowers. They were absolutely beautiful!
I will recommend you every chance I get, your work is truely amazing!
Thank you for all your help."

What a cute idea to shoot rose petals in the air with rose cannons!

Beautiful cake by Mechealle's Cakes. This picture was one of the two covers of the current issue of Northsound Couture Magazine.

9/26/10 Katherine & Jonathan

Another early fall wedding at Lairmont Manor. The bright apricot colored flowers looked beautiful on the grounds & really "popped", despite the clouds & drizzly rain. Katherine & Jonathan's color scheme consisted of brown, apricot, white & accents of bright green.
Professional pictures provided by Martin, a local photographer. Look for more of his work on his website: Photos by Martin.

White mini calla lilies, green mini cymbidium orchids, apricot colored dahlias &roses. A touch of seeded eucalyptus & sage added the blueish green foliage for Katherine's bridal bouquet.

Single white mini calla lilly, light pink/peach spray roses, green hypericum berry & a touch of fragrant rosemary for greenery.

Don't these bouquets look great with the chocolate brown dresses! I love this photograph too!! Bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bride's bouquet only with white hydrangea instead of the mini calla lilies.

All of the dahlias for this wedding I picked at a local dahlia farm just a mile from my shop. I always enjoy trucking around the 5 acres to find the perfect dahlia variety to use. For Katherine's aisle, I made small clusters of bright apricot dahlias, green hypericum berry & seeded eucalyptus. I then attached them to a few of the chairs down the aisle. Above & below pictures are a work in progress. The final product had brown ribbon trailing down to cover my mechanics of the bouquets & to bring in the brown accent color into the ceremony flowers.

If you look closely you can see how wet the chairs were...hence the bad hair :)
