Kathryn is a pearl!

This past week, we also created flowers for a downtown bride. Kathryn decided to get married at the Armory in the Pearl District in Portland, a industrial chic venue perfect for a young bride. Her flowers were reflective of that chic style with anthurium, roses, calla lilies, cymbidum orchids and fern curls.

This young bride decided to have us create a whimsical toss bouquet for her reception of dollar bills and lottery tickets since most of her party was "grown-up and married off already"...isn't that a fun way to honor your guests? I hope nobody lost an eye trying to catch that bouquet!

Karla's Cascade...

It's been a whirlwind of wedding activity this last couple weeks! One of our weddings was a casual simple one for Karla. Although her bouquet was beautifully elaborate! With starfighter lilies, fuschia roses, freesia aspidistra foliage and lily grass, this cascading bouquet is full and wonderful! Erik has never created such a large and fragrant bouquet for a bride! She loved it! SUCCESS!

Cheers to Cindy!

Last week, Julie created a stunning look for Cindy, a beautiful bride that chose the most sensational vibrant summer colors. Cindy left the details to us in creating a beautiful late summer wedding of her dreams. Many of the flowers were grown by the groom's mother which made the wedding ever more special. Sunflowers, dahlias, lilies, crocosmia, roses, callas, berries, and grasses to name a few of the great flowers utilized!

Here a melange of summer flowers nestled into a red tin container, with a heart carved out in the face of a sunflowers. A whimsical detail that fit Cindy's personality perfectly!

Cindy's bouquet of everything wonderful included gloriosa lilies, dahlias, berries, sunflowers, brown gerbera daisies, and rudbeckia pods. STUNNING!

Even the cake had a casual wonderful look about it with petals strewn about the table.

A beautiful arbor of flowers was created of sunflowers, roses, dahlias and much more for the ceremony site.

Best Wishes Brooke and Jeremy!

This last weekend, we had the great opportunity to create beautiful flower for a beautiful bride named Brooke. Her colors were crimson and burnt orange...We used orchids, roses, summer dahlias, lilies, amaranthus, crocosmia, and much more to create this fantastic wedding! From towering flowers on silver candelabras, to dahlias down the head table, this wedding was incredibly opulent!

Brooke's bouquet of rust lilies, and cymbidum orchids was really stunning and dramatic. The girls carried clutch bouquets of cymbidum orchids.

For this outdoor ceremony we created a monogram of rose petals for Jeremy and Brooke. When she walked the aisle, the petals would travel down the aisle beneath her beautiful train.

At the reception, stunning centerpieces atop silver candelabras splashed upward into the vaulted tent!

The head table had vases of dahlias traveling down the table with silver mint julep cups for the girls to place their bouquets in for the evening of remaining festivities.
