Michelle and John

Fall weddings are so much fun and the floral options are endless. This past fall, I did the flowers for the lovely fall wedding of Michelle and John. Michelle's requests were simple - fall feeling and texture without the traditional fall colors. I used dalhias, orchids, hydrangea, callas and tons of other flowers to create texture and all the blooms were shades of plum, purple, brown, green and white.
Also, working on this event was Michelle's sister-in-law, Sarah Trotter of Lasting Impressions Weddings and La Vie Photography. Sarah did a great job planning the amazing event for Michelle!!! La Vie, once again, showed their amazing talents with these photos.
The venue for these photos was the Nicollet Island Pavilion, which is so beautiful in the fall.

My favorite arrangement was the cake -I just got a little instruction that Michelle wanted a base of flowers around the stand...I took my cue from that and loaded it with fall hydrangea, roses, greens and orchids. Loved it!

The tall centerpieces were mix of curly willow, white orchids and purple dalhias (my favorite!)

The girls were stunning in plum dresses - perfect for fall.

Close-up of the bouquet - everything fall except the traditional fall colors. Love the texture!

lynn and sean

I had so much fun designing the flowers for Lynn and Sean's wedding this past spring and I was so excited when Lynn recently emailed me a link to her photos. Here are some shots that her photographer, Kris Drake, took on their special day.

ana and josh

One of my favorite venues in Minneapolis is The Mill City Museum and Ana and Josh had a perfect wedding day there last September. Sally from La Vie captured these shots and I love how they turned out!
Ana thought of everything - when I delivered the flowers, she had a little locket photo of her parents' wedding ready for me to attach to her sweet!
