Sisters and Golden Roosters in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Sisters was excited to travel to Fort Wayne, ID for Laura and Jeremy's wedding in October.  They were married in Kramer Chapel on the Concordia Seminary campus.  The reception was in the newly restored Historic Embassy Theatre in downtown Fort Wayne.  They also wanted a special personal touch by incorporating golden roosters for their farming families.  Here are some gorgeous images of the day from Dustin & Corynn Photography.


Laura's bouquet- full of textured dahlias, roses, berries, and calla lilies.


The happy bride and her maids!


The bridesmaids' bouquets featured blush, champagne, and berry tones to pop against their dresses and compliment the bridal bouquet.

Jeremy wore a clean purple mini calla- a bloom used only in Laura's bouquet.







The groomsmen wore blush spray roses

We just can't resist pictures of cute grandparents.........


..........just so sweet!




The famous golden roosters!  We made a bed of flowers for them to nest in on the guest tables.  The look was just what the bride envisioned.


Opposite guest tables had tall gold pilsner vases with a lush mix of wedding blooms.

Best wishes to Jeremy and Laura!  We had a blast working with you and your family!  Thank you for trusting us with your special day!

Rustic Blush and Ivory at Old Barn Inn

We always love when we can work with a family more than once for a wedding!  Kelsey, who is a sister of a former bride, and Sean had a beautiful autumn wedding at the Old Barn Inn.  Blush pink and ivory tones with hints of rustic texture were just perfect for the venue and the great outdoors. (Photos by Keith Lee Studios)


Kelsey carried this mix of hydrangea, anemones, roses, dahlias, and fine-leafed eucalyptus.  Very elegant with just a hint of blush.





The maids carried soft clutches of roses, berries, and stock flower with the same rustic greenery.





Dapper men!


Even though the weather didn't cooperate for an outdoor ceremony, these lovely blush and ivory pieces were used inside for the fireside nuptials.


Low, gold vessels with blush and ivory blooms decorated the guest tables for the reception.

Thank you so much to this wonderful family for trusting us with another daughter's wedding!  Best wishes to Kelsey and Sean!

Rustic Wedding and Reception at Three Barn Farm

Megan and Craig enjoyed an outdoor wedding and a barn reception at Three Barn Farm.  Here are the details from their lovely day shot by Julia Noack Photography.



Megan carried this stunning rustic bouquet.  It included bells of Ireland, bright roses, lisianthus, and spray roses.  The icing on the cake was the green hanging amaranthus to drape.



Beautiful bride!




The bridesmaids carried these linear bouquets of peach stock flower and bells of Ireland.

Look at those ladies!




Coral ranunculus were the boutonnieres for the guys.



The barn was decorated with rustic flower accents on the long farm tables.







Congratulations to the happy couple!  It was fun to be a part of your day!

Spotlight on a Sister-- Shelly

Our focus for this week's spotlight is Shelly.  Shelly started working for Sisters immediately upon her arrival to St. Louis in 2007.  She enjoyed designing in two different states before moving to Missouri to continue her floral career.  These are Shelly's thoughts from our recent Q and A:




Q: What is your favorite flower to design with?
A: Tulips!  They are my favorite flower- always.

Q: What attracted you to floral design?
A: When I was a teenager, I became fascinated with plants and flowers- not just the science, but as a way to brighten someone's day or celebrate.  I respect the amount of time and care if takes to grow them and the type of eye it takes to make them look just as beautiful in an arrangement as they do in nature. 

Q: Where do you look for inspiration?
A: Even though I am not much of a fashionista or an interior designer, I try to pay attention to new color schemes and styles in clothing and home decor.  Those two worlds directly affect the styles and colors that become popular in our trade.

Q:  What avenues do you suggest for narrowing a wedding flower search?
A:  I think that Pinterest can be helpful, when used in a constructive way.  The key is to pin things that speak to you, but also to go back through your boards and weed out some of the ideas that you no longer like.  Don't be afraid to have more than one board for your wedding.  Have a board just for flowers or just for hairstyles, etc.  This will make your time spent on Pinterest more fruitful when your vendors can easily see what you like.

Lovely Chandler Hill Wedding and Reception

Happy Anniversary to Emily and Alex who were married a year ago last month at Chandler Hill Winery.  Here are some excellent photos by L Photographie that show the details of their day.



Emily's bouquet was a mix of blue hydrangea and champagne, ivory, and peach roses.  It was such a rich combination that complemented the landscape of the winery perfectly.











Alex wore a spray rose boutonniere while his groomsmen had clusters of babies breath.







The bridesmaids carried bouquets of babies breath for a soft, romantic touch.











Babies breath spilled out of the urns on the wine barrels at the ceremony.  They were later moved to the bar at the reception.







The newlyweds!


The bride's family.  We are so excited to get to work with them again for Emily's sister Hannah's wedding next year!  They are all so sweet to work with!


These jars of flowers lined the tables at the reception.






Congratulations to the happy couple!  It was a joy to work with you and your family on such a special day!
