Classic with Texture

Many of our current brides are asking for an updated version of a classic design for their bouquet.  Here is an example of how an all white and ivory bouquet can be made more modern by incorporating lots of textures.  (Photos by Julia Noack)

Ashley wanted a soft and romantic all white and ivory bouquet.  Though the overall style is more traditional, we added lots of textures to give the flowers interest and definition.  We used two sizes of roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, and a platinum greenery.

To contrast Ashley's bouquet, the bridesmaids' bouquets were soft clutches of one type of flower- blue hydrangea.

Classic can still be fun!

Best wishes to Ashley and Garrick!

Vintage Blush Tones at the Renaissance Grand

One of our favorite venues is the Renaissance Grand.  We were so happy to work with Heather and Michael on their Renaissance wedding and reception last June.  Enjoy the detailed images of their day courtesy of  L Photographie.

One of our favorite bouquets of last year was this stunner.  It was simple yet so romantic with these antique blush garden roses, white peonies, and silver dusty miller to frame the blooms. 

The bridesmaids carried bouquets of ivory, champagne, and blush that included hydrangea, stock flower, roses, and dusty miller.

Such a sweet groom!  We really love this shot of Micheal and his ranunculus boutonniere.

A perfect match!  Such a lovely couple!

The ceremony was held in the Hawthorne Room at the Renaissance.

Clusters of wedding flowers were tied onto the chairs for the ceremony.

Similar but larger flower clusters were tied onto the front legs of the chuppah and reused on the bar at the reception in one big vase.

After the ceremony, guests moved into the Statler Ballroom for the reception.  The tables were decorated with tall and short arrangements of full blush and ivory blooms.

Time to celebrate!

 All our best wishes to you, Heather and Michael!  You two were such fun to work with!  Special thanks to you and your families!

Fall Textures Featuring Dahlias!

Tara and Patrick enjoyed a beautiful fall wedding day.  The flowers we designed for them included lots of texture including an abundant fall flower- dahlias.  Dahlias are such a fun bloom, add texture and come in a number of colors.  Take a peek with images from  Bobbi Brinkman Photography.

Tara's bouquet was a mixture of small and large blooms- roses, stock flower, hydrangea, berries, and dahlias.  The dahlias here are in ivory and add a petal-y softness to the bouquet.

This sweet little flower girl is holding a small clutch of burgundy dahlias.  Dahlias can be rich-looking and full of texture all on their own. 

Best wishes to the happy newlyweds!

Soft Spring Wedding at Graham Chapel and Forest Park Visitors Center

Here's a peek at a fresh, spring wedding to remind us that spring is coming!  Danny and Christina were married at Graham Chapel and celebrated with their friends and family at Forest Park Visitors Center.  Everything was very soft and romantic.  Pictures by Zettl Photography.

All the bouquet flowers were soft in color and texture.  Garden roses, dahlias, stock flower, hydrangea, and ranunculus are just a few of the blooms included in these clutches.

A decorated canopy framed the couple during the ceremony.  Aisle clusters of wedding flowers softened the aisle.

Low and tall lush arrangements decorated the guest tables at Forest Park Visitors Center.

Special thanks to Sabrina and the team at Proposing Dreams for planning another wonderful wedding!  Best wishes to the bride and groom!

Winter Wedding Textures at Chandler Hill

Michelle and Charlie enjoyed a beautiful winter wedding and reception at Chandler Hill in December.  We used lots of winter textures for their flowers.  Take a look at the images from Brea Photography.

Michelle's bouquet was a mix of whites and ivories with silver accents.  The feature flowers were the peonies accented with roses and a platinum-colored berry call brunia.

The bouquet was framed with a silver greenery called dusty miller.

So beautiful!

The bridesmaids had pine cones and winter evergreens added to their ivory roses for a winter-y touch.

The guys' flowers were ivory spray roses with an evergreen touch.

Look at those two trouble-makers!

 Thanks to the bride and groom and their families!  It was a pleasure to be a part of your day!

So Many Wonderful Smiles at Des Peres Presbyterian Church

Marissa and Kyle are a fun-loving couple that had a joyful wedding day.  Here are the images of their wedding ceremony at Des Peres Presbyterian Church.  (Heroic Photography)

Marissa's bouquet was all rich shades of purples and burgundy with full fall textures.  The bridesmaids bouquets were the opposite of the bride's- clean and simple all white hydrangea clutches.

These girls look like a fun bunch!

Marissa likes Harry Potter.....just a little.

Stoic men.

The ceremony begins.

The newlyweds!

There were so many smiles on this day!  Thanks to the bride and groom for making us a part of it all!

Classic Coronado Ballroom Wedding and Reception

Alex and Katie had a gorgeous wedding filled with LOTS of lush flowers.  Here is how they celebrated their vows with their friends and family.  (Photos by Kelly Pratt Photography)

All the flowers for the day were formal white and ivory blooms.  Katie's bouquet was a mix of standard and garden roses against a hydrangea background.

The ceremony at the Coronado.

The canopy that framed the couple was covered in branches and white blooms.  The aisle was lined with vases of flowers and candles that we re-used at the reception as guest tables centerpieces.

Opposite guest tables had tall vintage-shaped vases filled with white hydrangea.

So cute!

 Best wishes to the bride and groom!  It was a pleasure to work with you and your families!

Special thanks to the staff at the Coronado who always make every event unique and fun!
