7/17/11 - Shari & Trent

Today it rained & rained & rained! But despite the rain & how soaking wet we got setting up the flowers, I still had a lot of fun. I was told the rain didn't dampen the mood at the ceremony either. Which doesn't surprise me knowing the bride & her family. Such a fun group! I can't wait to see the professional pictures from Evantide Photography to see all of Lairmont Manor's white umbrellas being used during the ceremony. I'm sure it made for some sweet pictures!

Congratulations Shari & Trent! Thank you so much for choosing me as your florist & allowing me to design the flowers for yet another Heeringa wedding!!

Bride's bouquet with mini gerber daisies, garden spray roses, freesia, billy balls, bouvardia, sage, scented geranium & succulents. The stems were wrapped in ivory double face satin ribbon & rhinestone trimming.

The reception under the tents at Lairmont Manor had both tall & low centerpieces. Two beautiful "floral chandeliers" filled with greenery & snapdragons.

The sweetheart table which will have the addition of the bride's bouquet at the reception in the center.

The low centerpieces were in groupings of jars, milk glasses & bottles. These set on records as the Groom business in Vancouver, B.C. is called Lotusland Electronics and Music. He sells vintage turntables, receivers, amps, records, musical instruments & other items too. So the records are a perfect personal touch!

The ceremony in the courtyard by the fountain had a cluster of flowers on the chairs down the center aisle & a cluster of gerber daisies along the back row of chairs. The flowers added much needed pop of color on cloudy rainy day. Two Ginkgo trees were at the of my favorite trees! Shari used some ginkgo leaf details on some of the decor at the reception to tie everything together.

7/9/11 - Julie & Sam

Julie & Sam's wedding was at Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine. I love how the flowers turned out! The colors, the fun wine cork details & all the other details Julie & her family/friends did as well for the wedding. It was a beautiful day to be out by the water. These are just a few pictures of this great wedding taken by Hana, the intern for the past two weekends. Thanks Hana!

7/9/11 Sabrina's Bouquet

Sabrina hired me to design her bridal bouquet along with her Jr. Bride's bouquet. I always love this fun color combination. Obviously other bride's do too because I do it every year!

7/5/11 - Nicole & Duane

Nicole & Duane live in Colorado, but chose Lairmont Manor in Bellingham for their wedding & reception largely due to several of Nicole's family living in British Columbia. Nicole & I planned her decor via several emails & phone conversations. Below is just a glimpse of the wedding & decor while we were there setting up. I love the way the decor turned out & the eclectic feel everything had, but can't wait to see the professional pictures to see the addition of the bamboo chairs & final details added by the coordinator from Added Details. You'll have to wait to see the professional photos to see the rest!

Congratulations Nicole & Duane!

7/3/11 Lauren & Jake

I am so grateful to have had the chance to be part of Lauren & Jake's wedding. I enjoyed getting to know Lauren & meeting with her, her mom & mother in-law. Such great families & Lauren's genuine sweet personality made this wedding incredibly fun. Below are a few images from the day, taken with my camera...but I can't wait to get photos from the photographers, Fleming Photography to post. Then you'll see how really pretty the wedding was & how great the bridal party, bride & groom looked.

Congratulations Lauren & Jake! Thank you for choosing me to design your flowers!
