nicole + mike

Oh, I could not wait for these pictures from Jodi Ann Photography of Nicole and Mike's beautiful June wedding!!! I knew Jodi would capture the vintage look that Nicole wanted for her day and she totally delivered!
Nicole's bouquet was study in lush: peonies, orchids, feathers and crystals....I just loved it! Her super cute bridesmaids wore black and held green flowers.

Chic and sweet

Here are some more amazing shots from Olive Juice Studios of Katie and Josh's chic, yet sweet wedding last fall. I love the way Katie used red accents - shoes, flowers, dresses...so sweet!! This couple was a joy to work with - easygoing and focused on each other and their new life together. Best wishes to Josh and Katie!!

katie + jim

Kelly Brown from Kelly Brown Weddings just forwarded me the amazing pictures from Katie and Jim's lake wedding a few weeks ago. I didn't get to see the bride and groom that day because their terrific wedding planner Sarah Trotter from Lasting Impressions graciously offered to pick up the flowers for them on her way to the lake. Kelly's pictures make me feel like I was there - just breathtaking!!

For Katie's flowers, I used a mix of seasonal flowers - delphinium, hydrangea, iris, dahlias and others. The designs were to be both colorful and casual to compliment the lake setting - I think it was mission accomplished!!!

Ribbon inspiration

A small detail on Anna's dress inspired me - it was a patterned ribbon in shades of green on the sash of her eyelet gown. So precious!!! I immediately thought we needed to use those shades of green to inspire the flowers - the end result was flowers in all shades of green (and a few whites ones too!) and all wrapped up with different green ribbons.

We are in the thick of wedding season now, but I wanted to take a minute to pause and reflect on some of the beautiful things created in my studio in the past few months. When things settle down and the professional shots start coming in, I will post more about each one. But for now, just enjoy...
