Fantastic Coral Peonies!

Heidi and Josh were married in May and wanted a bright and natural look to their wedding.  Heidi got some of the most gorgeous peonies we have ever seen in our studio for her bridal bouquet.  Frankly, we were in love with those coral blooms!  Though rare, the coral peonies are becoming more and more available from year to year.  Here are some images by Shelly Goodman Photography.


Coral peonies, ivory tulips, peach ranunculus, waxflower and loose draping greenery made up this stunning bouquet.


These two were so sweet!




A peach ranunculus for Josh to match his bride.


Probably one of our favorites to date.





The maids carried peach garden roses and fillers in the coral and yellow with draping natural greenery.



Best wishes to the bride and groom and their family!

Trendy Cascade Bouquets??

Often times, we hear clients refer to "old-fashioned cascade bouquets" as something outdated and not for them.  Recently, we have had an abundance of clients requesting and sending pictures of bouquets that definitely have cascade bouquet characteristics, but with a modern flair. We like to call them mock cascades.  These bouquets do have draping blooms and greenery and are not tight and round.  They have flowers that are more forward-facing as opposed to the hand-tied bouquet look.  However, they are not the old-fashioned teardrop shape and exhibit more of a natural, asymmetrical look.  These mock cascades take all the good points of the popular hand-tied and more traditional cascades and fuse them into something romantic, textural, and modern.  Here are some examples of a few mock cascades we have done just this wedding season.


This example uses the popular blush and ivory tones with natural greenery and soft blooms to create a look that is very unique and romantic.


This bridal bouquet is bright and exciting!  It has many different types of smaller flowers to create a "just picked" look straight from the garden.


The shape of this cascade is more compact than the previous examples, but is still very natural and asymmetrical.  This bouquet has peonies in the background to add to it's lush beauty.

As we speak to more and more clients, we are seeing a trend towards a more natural feel and shape to bouquets and centerpieces.  We hope it continues as we really love this entire look and all that we can create within it!

Ameristar Ceremony-- Kemp Auto Museum Reception

Amy and Jesse had a very romantic and unique wedding last fall.  They said their "I dos" in a romantically set ballroom at Ameristar and then celebrated with a reception at Kemp Auto Museum.  Photography by Switzerfilm.

Aisle petals and candles made an awesome impact at the ceremony.


The reception flowers were all classic white and ivory.


Long guest tables were decorated with large white hydrangea pieces accented by petals and candles down the length.


The Kemp all decked out!



A special thanks to the team at Kate & Company for making the day a success!

Best wishes to the bride and groom!!

Wildflower Wedding in July

Hannah and Michael were married in July a few seasons ago at Kirkwood United Methodist Church.  Hannah loved the look of wildflowers for her wedding.  They wanted their day to be fun and joyful and wanted their flowers to reflect those feelings.  Here are the photos by Emily Wehling Photography.


Hannah's bouquet was a mix of loose, soft blooms including hydrangea, stock flower, lavender, dusty miller, and her favorite- Queen Anne's Lace.






The bridesmaids' flowers mimicked the same loose, garden-y feel that the bridal bouquet displayed.








Sweet flower girls carried little bouquets down the aisle too!



The boutonnieres were a mix of wildflower elements including lavender and berries.










Michael had groomsmen and groomsladies stand up for him.




Hannah's mom carried a small wildflower clutch of flowers down the aisle instead of wearing flowers.



















The reception tables had vintage blue mason jars with more loose wildflowers.



All our best to Michael and Hannah!!

Vibrant Lumen Ceremony and Reception

We recently found these images tucked away on our desktop from a wedding we did a couple of seasons ago.  Nicolle and Grant had a colorful ceremony and reception at Lumen Event Space.  Here are the bright colors of their day that never go out of style.  Images by LPhotographie.


Nicolle's bouquet was a bright mix of yellow billy balls (crespedia), orange ranunculus, hot pink spray roses, and buplerum greenery.

Nicolle's bouquet was very petite to match her features.

The guys sported bright pops of color, too!
 
The maids carried these clutches of mini green hydrangea, spray roses, and yellow solidago.



Nicolle is from Australia, which her girls represented nicely!

The ceremony took place upstairs at Lumen in front of this vibrant ribbon wall.
 




Downstairs for the reception, rustic touches were added to the food and guest tables.



Long guest tables with pops of green, orange, and hot pink.


It was a special treat to be a part of this wedding.  Best of luck, Nicolle and Grant!
