Jaden's and Heather's Wedding

I can be very critical of my work, and in fact, there are a few bouquets that I wish
 I could go back and do again, but there are no do-overs with wedding flowers!
However, every now and again, I exceed my own expectations and am very surprised
at how a bouquet and the flowers in general turn out for a wedding.
This was my first attempt at a bohemian style bouquet, and I honestly fretted about doing it,
but I absolutely loved the way the bouquet, wreath, and especially the floral arrangement
turned out.  The bouquet isn't anything like it started out to be, but I think it 
looks much prettier than I expected.  The pictures do not do it justice.  It was stunning!
I loved the combinations of flowers the bride chose...perfect for a Christmas wedding!
Congratulations to Jaden and Heather!  It was a pleasure doing your flowers.

Aaron's and Kara's Wedding


I was excited when I learned that Ranunculus is now available all year round in our area, 
and excited to do these flowers for my cousin's daughter's wedding!
Kara loves Dusty Miller, so with that as the background, we used light pink garden roses
and pink and purple Ranunculus along with black dahlias.  
If you're looking to do a soft, romantic bouquet, I think this combination was perfect!
I hope the bride was pleased.  It was a pleasure to do her flowers.
Congratulations Aaron and Kara!

Travis' and Kim's Wedding



I love autumn!  Wasn't sure how I felt adding blue to the orange and yellow tones,
but I thought it turned out really cute!  Perfect flowers for this cute couple!
Congratulations Travis and Kim!  What a great couple!

Homecoming 2016

What a weekend!  Two weddings and Homecoming!
And I figured out that I did flowers for five different schools!
It made for a couple of long days, but I sure love what I do!
Here's a sample from the thirty-one orders I filled.

Allen's and Marisa's Wedding


We're kicking off the Fall wedding season with sunflowers.   
Adding blue into the autumn color mix is a popular trend right now.
Hope the couple was happy with their flowers.
I wish them a very happy life together!
Congratulations Allen and Marisa!

Flowers for Aunt Leila

Did each of these arrangements for my Aunt Leila who recently passed away
at the age of 94.  I found out at her funeral that purple was her favorite color.
It just seemed to fit her!  She'll be missed.

Austin's and Danielle's Wedding


It was such a pleasure to do these flowers for my friend Danielle and her new hubby.
They seem so happy!  I think the combination of white roses, white oriental lilies,
and blue Dendrobium orchids is stunning!  And with the teal dresses and ties...
well, it made for a beautiful wedding! And I got to do a few bouquets for the occasion. 
She chose to use her toss bouquet at the temple, a cascading bouquet for her reception,
and another hand-tied bouquet for an open house. (I also did a cascade for her bridals!)
That's a lot of bouquets and I loved doing every single one of them!
Congratulations Danielle and Austin!  I'm so happy for you!
