Unique, Unusual and Awesome bouquets

These bouquets use ordinary flowers in very unique ways. They were beautiful and awesome, just like the ladies that picked them........

This round, hand-tied bouquet of phaelenopsis orchids, pink nerene lilies, and white hydrangea really combined texture and drama to create a unique look for the bride.

This tear-drop cascade bouquet with pink roses, cymbidium orchids, hydrangea, lily grass, and jade berries was the perfect bouquet for this laid-back, garden style wedding.

Here are the cymbidium orchids again, this time in a round, hand-tied look. Even though orchids don't have long stems, we created that illusion for this bouquet.

This bridal bouquet had a very soft, romantic look. It is all white lisianthus, clustered together to create this lush, hand-tied bouquet. It took about 30-40 stems of lisianthus!

This bouquet of purple lisianthus was the bridesmaids' bouquet for the white lisi bride. All soft, delicate flowers for a gorgeous wedding day.

Cymbidium Showcase

Here is a great example of tall, showy centerpieces using a more "natural" look. Nicole & Ryan were married this past July and had their reception at the Westin. Nicole picked bouquet flowers with a bright, tropical feel. The centerpieces we created showcased the feature flower used throughout the wedding: the cymbidium orchid.

The bride's bouquet had a base of bright pink hydrangeas accented by white cymbidium orchids with dark pink throats. Loops of lily grass brought another tropical element into the bouquet.

The centerpieces were tall trumpet vases filled with curly willow. The same white orchids used in Nicole's bouquet were submerged inside the vase and placed on the tall branched of the willow. Pink LEDs and clear rocks helped to bring out the pink accent color of the reception.

Orchids inside and out.

Although orchids can sometimes get price-y, we used one stem of orchids broken up on the willow branches to give more "bang for the buck" .

The gorgeous outstretching branches with orchids really brought an element of nature inside the reception room.

Special thanks to Rebecca Boillat at St. Louis Wedding Design for helping coordinate and design such a beautiful event. And, as always, we wish all our best to the newly married couple!!

Hot Pink and Black Wedding

Here's a color palette that really made a statement! Rochelle and Kevin got married this past July. We really played up the hot summer colors and made all the flowers real focal points for the event.

(All of these gorgeous photos were provided by Lace.)

The bridal bouquet was all hot pinks: hydrangea, mini gerbers, roses, spray roses, and freesia.

The bridesmaids' flowers were the same as the bride's, just smaller and without the hydrangea.

The decor for the ceremony reflected the bright color used in the personal flowers.

These little cuties carried ivory spray rose kissing balls down the aisle.

The sharp-looking wedding party.

The reception was at the City Museum. We used some tall and some short arrangements to help bring more variety to the tables.

The tall arrangements were black eiffel vases with pink balls of gerbers, roses, and waxflower filler on top.

The short arrangements were black cube vases filled with pink hydrangea, gerbers, roses, spray roses, and variegated greenery.

Even the cake needs a little pink sometimes!! (Cake by Hank's Cheesecakes)

Special thanks to Patti from All Dressed in White for helping coordinate another successful event! As always, best wishes to the bride and groom for many happy years together!!

Attention Spring Brides!

This is a beautiful use of spring colors and spring-time flowers, for all of you who may be planning for an upcoming spring wedding. Laurie and Adam got married this past May. Here are some great pictures from Gail Fleming.

Laurie's bouquet included large white callas, pink mini callas, and green hypericum berries.

The girls carried large white calla lilies for a very clean, contemporary look.

These white hydrangeas were hung on the pews and lined the aisle for the bride's entrance.

The calla theme was carried through to the reception at the Forest Park Visitors Center (Lindell Pavilion).

It was a pleasure working on this wedding and we wish the newlyweds much happiness!

Glitz and Glamour

This was a wedding that really sparkled! Mindy and Kenny really made every detail of their Labor Day weekend wedding a personal touch. Mindy LOVES crystals and added them in as her signature part of the day. Our hats are off again to Sabrina and her staff at Proposing Dreams for putting together an awesome day for her clients.

Thanks for Browers Photography for these primo shots!

All white "ball" flower arrangements lined the aisle for the bride's entrance.

The bridal bouquet was white mini callas surrounded by ivory roses and "sprinkled" with crystals.

The happy couple.

The aisle flowers from the church were transported.............

.......to the Holiday Inn ballroom where we added hanging crystals and used them as centerpieces on half of the tables.

Here is a shot of the back of our van during the transport of the flowers!! (Photo by Sisters staff member, Christa)

The other half of the tables had our tall, metal trees with curly willow, hanging crystals, votives, and orchids. (Photo by Sisters staff member, Christa)

Lighting and fabric by Exclusive Events, combined with all the other elements of the room, made the space look absolutely fabulous!! (Photo by Sisters staff member, Christa)

We wish Mindy and Kenny many happy years together. Thanks for having us as a special part of your day!

Spinks Pavilion Wedding

Jessica and Ashraf had a gorgeous wedding this past June at the Gladney Rose Garden and Spinks Pavilion. Jessica wanted a lot of personal touches and unique design elements for her event.
Thanks to Lace for all the awesome pictures!
Jessica's bouquet was flame mini callas, ivory roses, and white cymbidium orchids arranged in a circular biedermeier style.
The bride and groom's chairs at the reception were decorated with the wedding colors in orchids and spray roses.

We incorporated the flowers from the bridal bouquet into three different centerpieces for the tables, all in mirror rectangle vases.

Flame mini callas, bells of Ireland, and ivory waxflower
White cymbidium orchids, bells of Ireland, and ivory waxflower

Ivory roses, bells of Ireland, and ivory waxflower
