a very textured bouquet

I did this bouquet for a fantastic client {kelli} and her groom for their pre-wedding picture fun time! We went with a  full texture design, there are a plethora of organic items here in this baby including some of my favs! billy balls, millet, succulents, pincushion protea, and scabiosa pods!  And a succulent bout to match!

Its a holiday week! Enjoy!

abby’s tuscany wedding

Does this look slightly familiar? Abby had a similar vision to Sydney with a little different spin on it and some added blue. Creamy, peach, orange dream! Abby’s bouquet was one of my favorites for the season, it included ruffly poppies, and end stage ranunculus, and believe it or not those creamy peachy flowers are carnations … i know i know … amazing. a few other blooms filled in the spaces.

Abby’s vision was a little home spun but well put together. She re- purposed soup cans and covered them in her favorite fabric & paper patterns for the centerpieces, she also painted small terracotta pots blue and then we added a glass vase to complete the multiple texture/vessel container look. We used a wide range of flowers to compliment the vessels and kept everything mostly creamy with a little peach and orange.

At the entrance to this outdoor Tuscany wedding two tall glass vases stood full of peach glads! such a stunning statement when in full bloom.

The cake was simple, coconut covered and full of texture so we just freelanced a few blooms on the face of each here and there.

Thanks & congrats Abby & Jason!

what should be behind a recommendation ?

What do you expect from me when you ask for a referral? What should be behind that? what kind of knowledge on my part? Today was one of my posting days on UBB and i shared an article about this very concept.

Sydney’s summer country club wedding

Sydney was one of my fav brides of 2010. Classic girl with a little vintage flair going on. Her colors were chocolate brown, creams, buffs, oranges, peaches, & coral. “A creamy feel” as Sydney would say!  For her bridal sitting we used a unique variety of rose mixed with a little filler and for the wedding bouquet we used garden roses both in regular & spray size, football mums, dahlias, carnations, and some added details of curly willow, tulips, ranucs, hydrangea, and hanging amaranthus for the centerpieces. I just loved the simplicity of her cake, it spoke to really the style of the entire event! Sydney has since her wedding contributed some great articles to UBB. A great asset to planning brides {as it is that she was recently one!}, smart as whip and as darling as they come! Thanks Sydney!

on the heals of halloween {orange&black}

I should have posted this last week right?!!? So this black and orange wedding could easily be well suited for halloween, or fall. Ashley loves orange and her other key color was black. Her wedding actually took place in an edgy ceremony/reception in wendover, we were not on site this was a pick up order but we sure had fun with it! We used black feathers to compliment things along with orange dahlias, roses, and calla lilies. Simple. Orange. Black.
