Summer 2018 Weddings

hoops

Flower girl and bridesmaid’s hoops replaced the traditional bouquets for Mara & Devin’s July 3rd wedding.

It has been a busy summer wedding season and I have enjoyed working with each and every couple who have entrusted me with their florals!

Mara asked for a bright pop of color and a “just picked” garden design for her bouquet.

The trend toward outdoor ceremonies has made designing so much fun. There is such a feeling of success when the last touch is added and I can step back and take a few photos.

My assistants and I have created and set up two weddings per weekend since the end of May. We now have a couple weeks to regroup and refresh and then we’ll be back in full swing starting September 1st with more wonderful couples and gorgeous fall weddings! Please email me if you would like to check availability of a 2019 and 2020 wedding date. I would love to meet with you!

 

 

 

Table Centers

Whether you prefer low and lush, a garland of green, tall and dramatic or anything in between, we love to design centerpieces for your wedding, party or corporate event! (And no, I didn’t mean that to rhyme. :))

Mary and Greg 4/7/18

 

Mary and Greg were married on April 7th at St. Elizabeth’s Church in Tecumseh. The bridesmaids wore wisteria and the men were dressed in black and white. They were a pleasure to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed designing their wedding day florals!

Mary&Greg

Mary1At our first consultation, Greg made it clear that he would like to add his own touch to the wedding decor and I always admire a groom who gets involved in the details. He is a pheasant hunter and provided feathers to incorporate into their wear and carry flowers.

Greg

Greg’s boutonniere~ ranunculus, a spray rose bud, seeded eucalyptus and a few of Greg’s feathers.

Mary3

Mary’s bouquet~ roses, lisianthus, ranunculus, stock, seeded eucalyptus and waxflower.

The reception was held at The Sheraton, Ann Arbor with centerpieces that were both low and high.

For the love of bouquets

There is something so satisfying in designing a bouquet for a bride and knowing that you have captured her style and essence. Each bouquet I create is as different as the person it is created for!

Emily

Emily & Perry, May 13, 2017~ Polo Fields, Ann Arbor

Lately, I have had many email inquiries from young couples who are beginning the process of wedding planning and want to know my pricing or whether I have “packages” available for flowers. The answer, in brief, is no, so sorry! ūüôā The reason I keep my business small is so that I can put a bit of myself into each event and design. I really need to meet with a couple, spend some time discussing their plans and learn about their wedding vision and color scheme. It also helps me tremendously if they are able to provide a few visual images of florals that they love and would like to use as inspiration. I formulate a unique vision for that particular couple that includes elements that may have never been used in other weddings. Again, each wedding I design is as unique and special¬†as the couple who are beginning their lives together.

Fond memories of the 2016 Wedding Season

Well, it’s official…our 2017 Wedding Season is booked! We are super excited to work with so many great couples but also sorry to let others know that our calendar is full and we are no longer booking weddings for this year. If you are in need of flowers for a wedding in 2018 or beyond, please send an email or give me a call to talk about reserving your date.

As we ramp up toward the season to come, I have been reminiscing over some of the photos from last year. Wedding work is so, so much work but also, very rewarding. It is always such a pleasure to meet with couples, talk through their ideas and help them create their own unique vision for the big day. Sending a big Thank You to all of the couples who have entrusted us with your floral accessories and decor!
