Kelly and Justin

If you have never been to a winter wedding at Nicollet Island Pavilion, it is such a treat! Kelly and Justin were married a few days before Valentine's Day in a heated tent on the Pavilion patio.
Kelly chose dark red roses for all the bouquets and centerpieces - stunning on the white winter background.
These shots from E Photography capture the warm moments of the wedding day.
As with all my weddings, I incorporated details into the flowers to make them more special for the couple. Note the rhinestone buckles on all the bouquets and corsages - Kelly thought they were the perfect way to add "sparkle" to the black satin ribbon. Also, as a memorial to Justin's mother, I created a large rose arrangement to rest on the first chair at the ceremony - the cutest little ring bearer is standing next to it in the picture.
Congratulations to Kelly and Justin - I loved your winter wedding!!

Jodie and Andy

One of my absolute favorite events of my career was Jodie and Andy's wedding this past fall. They are an amazing couple and gave me so much creative freedom with their designs. Even the final design for the chuppah was a complete surprise to the couple and I was thrilled to create that for them.

Jodie carried white mini calla lilies and her bridesmaids' held orchids and calla lilies in an upright design to compliment the shape of the flowers.

The reception was at the fabulous Westin in Edina. The look was again orchids and callas lilies in fall colors shown two ways - either submerged in glass vases or in tall designs for height.

Congrats to Jodie and Andy and best wishes to you for an amazing life together. Thank you for allowing me to create for your day!

Thanks to Contiempo for these great photos.
