Bouquets from recent weddings

Stephanie's Bouquet

Stephanie’s bouquet of ivory and coral roses, Asiatic lilies and veronica.

Babies Breath Bouquets

Rachel’s nine bridesmaids carried “clouds” of babies breath bound with pink satin ribbon. This is a fresh, cost effective idea when you have a large wedding party.


Bridesmaids bouquets include lilies, dahlias and roses.


A beach wedding in St. Joseph, MI

Congratulations to Kristen and Joe who were married on July 20th! The beautiful setting for their wedding was the beachfront town of St. Joseph on Lake Michigan. The day was sunny, breezy and lovely. Kristen requested shades of pink and ivory for her bouquets and centerpieces to complement the pale aqua of the bridesmaids dresses and the color of beach glass. The stars of the bouquets were the fabulous garden roses…so full and so many petals they appear to be peonies!

Kristen's bridesmaids

Eight bridesmaids bouquets in tones of pink, ivory and peach.


The cake table with small cake topped with white ranunculus. Cupcakes to come!

Kristen's bouquet

Kristen’s bouquet included silvery dusty miller and pale pink garden roses.


One of the centerpiece designs…simple and elegant…the blue green mason jars and frosted vases captured the feel of beach glass.


Candles suspended from branches and arranged in sand.

More candles with babies breath.
