Vintage Wedding

Carly and Tait got married September 24, 2011 at The Evergreen Lakehouse.
Lot's a planning and detail.   They collected the old keys, vintage frames and vases for the decor.
Beautiful paper for the hand-made paper airplanes.
The bridemaids dresses with a colorful print, each different and each girl wearing cowboy boots.

Paper airplanes to fly and announce the newly married couple.
I like that the guys told me these bouts were "space age Jetson-like.

Organic Wedding

Rebecca came into my studio to discuss her wedding flowers for Sept 4th a few months back.
She told me she and her fiancĂ©  were "foodies"
and having fresh vegetables, herbs, and hops was most important.
They provided the fresh vegies from an organic farm and each table had a different theme, such as
Corn, Squash, Eggplant, Tomatoes, Carrots....I added fresh mint, sage, rosemary, lavender, moss, cones, hops and berries.  I really liked how they turned out!
I got fresh radishes from the local market to add to the bride and bridesmaids bouquets.
The scent was unbelievably fresh and calming from all of the herbs.

Her bouquet.

Bouttonniers with hops, berries, baby cones and rosemary.

Baby Succulents

I love succulents. Really. I do. When a bride comes to me and tells me they want to use succulents in their wedding...I get excited.  They just have so much personality.
This weekend, I have a bride who will be having these on her tables.
Succulents, moss and canning jars. And, of course, a lily grass tie. 
The babies. 
Jars with a layer of pea pebbles and reindeer moss.

A little tricky slipping the succulent inside the jar....
Add water.

Tie the rims with a lily grass blade and there ya go!

Dunafon Castle

Dunafon Castle is a private residence that occasionally allows for special events.
The castle was built in 1941 and is surrounded by the Bear Creek
and water falls  and ponds.
Simply a beautiful pristine setting. It is a treat to design flowers
for weddings held at the castle.

A First

I've been a florist for longer than I've been a Mom.
I've loved seeing my sons' friends from baby hood and kindergarten grow up.
I got to design wedding flowers for one of  my son's classmate that I met in his kindergarten!
This was a first for me.  I've done the prom flowers, birthday flowers, first date flowers,
and now, wedding flowers. Kind of cool.
And, Mary was a beautiful and chill bride.  Congratulations, Mary and Josh!
