Sisters Studio Re-Do!

Check out what we have been working on here at our shop! We did a complete re-do of our studio and consultation areas here at the cottage. We have updated and re-arranged to keep our showroom interesting!

Here is our new and improved entryway. We had help from Aries who provided us with a cocktail table, place settings, and linens. We decided on fresh, bright colors to really wow our guests.

Next, our sitting room and showcase area has been really changed around! We have featured our crystal tree and some of our other work in this room as well. We have LOTS of awesome photos on the wall and, of course, our new T.V. to scroll pictures of our flowers on a slide show.

The beautiful photos that are seen throughout our studio are by some of our favorite photographers-- T. Kratzer, Luke Walker, Lace, Artisan, and Zettl, just to name a few!

Our consultation room has been improved as well. We have more table and designs showcased throughout the room.

These bright linens and the cool chiavari bar stools are also on loan from Aries.

We are very excited about the changes! We hope to bring even more elements of sophistication and style to our clients who meet us at our studio!

Say Yes to Yellow

Yellow is fast becoming a popular color for weddings- for everything from bridesmaids' dresses to table linens, and of course, flowers. Here are some snapshots that we took of yellow bouquets for a recent wedding that we designed.

This bridal bouquet was all yellow and whites/ivories. It included gerbera daisies, roses, hydrangea, and pearled stephanotis.

The bridesmaids' bouquets were a similar mix of flowers, except theirs had green hydrangea as an accent.

Don't be afraid of color in your flowers!! A neutral bridesmaids' dress compliments brightly colored flowers very easily. If color is what you want, then go for it!!

One Wedding, Two Gorgeous Ceremonies

Here's the story of one great couple, two ceremonies, and an awesome party. Melissa and Kedric were married in early May. They had a traditional Jewish ceremony on Friday with their close friends and family on hand. On Saturday, they chose a beautiful outdoor ceremony at World's Fair Pavilion in Forest Park and a gorgeous reception at the Chase. Take a peek at the pictures from both days!

Here are the bride and groom at their Jewish ceremony. We set up our chuppah and decorated it with the bride's wedding colors--bright pinks and oranges. (Thank you to the family for supplying these snapshots!)

The following are professional shots from Luke Walker Photography of Saturday's details and ceremony.

Melissa's bouquet was a mix of cherry brandy roses, pink hydrangea, orange spray roses, hot pink waxflower filler, and pink cymbidium orchids.

Outdoor ceremony at Forest Park.

The following snapshots were taken by Sisters during the reception set-up at the Chase. There were two different centerpieces for the guest tables-one tall and one short. All the flowers were the bright pinks and oranges of the personal and ceremony flowers.

We filled the bride's vases with hydrangea, roses, and stock, and accented with hanging amaranthus and pheasant feathers.

These short, rounded centerpieces included roses, stock, and waxflower to add a pop of color on the tables.

Congratulations to the bride and groom! It was a pleasure working with you! Best wishes for your future!
