Outdoor Wedding at Forest Park Golf Club

Here are some snapshots of an outdoor wedding that we recently helped design at Forest Park Golf Club. Liesl and RJ had both their ceremony and reception there this past July.

The flower colors for the wedding were fresh greens and pinks.

This bridal bouquet was very garden-y for the outdoor ceremony.

We set up our chuppah on the patio outside for the ceremony.

We used family tallises to decorate the chuppah. The July weather threatened to storm for the wedding, and did for a little while, but everything stayed nice just long enough the ceremony.

Candles were lit to honor the couple's passed relatives.

Thanks to the staff at Forest Park Golf Club for being awesome to work with, as always.
Best wishes to the bride and groom!!

Seasnoal Peonies, Sweet Pea, and Ranunculus

Earlier this year, we designed very spring-looking bouquets for one of our brides. We used seasonal flowers including peonies, ranunculus, and sweet pea for the bride and her maids. Here are some shots we took just before delivery.

This bridal bouquet showcased green hydrangea as a background, ivory roses, and white sweet pea. The sweet pea is the paper thin, clam-shaped flower seen all throughout the bouquet.

The bridesmaids carried these bouquets of white peonies and orange/coral ranunculus.

All three of these flowers come in many different colors and can be used in different ways. Ask about their availability for your wedding or event!

June Wedding for Tricia and Matt

This wedding was such a pleasure to be a part of! Tricia and her family were wonderful clients and the wedding palate was so much fun to work with! Here are some snapshots that we took of Tricia's bouquet which was a mixture of whites and ivories with hints of green including roses, peonies and stephanotis. Check out the monogrammed satin ribbon wrap!

The following photos are by Browers. They show the gorgeous ceremony at the Shrine of St. Joseph and reception at the Chase.

The bride admires the flower girl's kissing ball in raspberry and green.

The bridesmaids' flowers were chosen to help accentuate the color of the dresses and really give a pop of color.

Sincere congratulations to Tricia & Matt and their families!

Beautiful Backyard Reception

Lindsay and Jay were married at the beginning of August. They had a beautiful ceremony at Memorial Presbyterian. Their reception was a very personal expression of their styles held at the home of the bride's family. Here are some shots of the day by Erin Duggin.

Lindsay carried a bouquet of white flowers accented with bright yellow.

Jay's boutonniere complemented his bride's flowers.

The aisle at the ceremony was decorated with both clusters and spheres of wedding flowers.

The bridesmaids carried a mixture of flowers in bright yellow, orange, white with accents of purple. These bouquets mimicked the color and texture of the bridal bouquet.

The flower spheres from the aisle were transported to the reception to decorate the garden walk way. The dinner and dancing were held under tents in the backyard garden area.

The following photos are from Exclusive Events who provided the gorgeous lighting and lanterns for the tent.

The centerpieces at the guest tables were three vases of different flowers in each vase, clustered as one grouping. Some tables had square vases, some had round vases. The clustered arrangements fit in with the very garden-y look of the whole reception.

What a truly unique and wonderful event to have been a part of! Special thanks to Renee at Weddings by Renee for coordinating the wedding!
Our best wishes to Lindsay and Jay!!

Fresh Yellow at the MAC

These snapshots are of the June wedding for Melissa and Kevin. Yellow and white were the main color in all the flowers. Take a look at the different shapes and textures throughout the wedding!!

This bridesmaid bouquet included gorgeous white stargazer lilies, green bells of Ireland, and bright yellow freesia. This specific mix of flowers gave the whole bouquet lots of interest and texture.

The same yellow and whites were carried through to the ceremony in these altar pieces....

....and into the aisle decor.

A happy bridesmaid with her bouquet.

This is the beautiful bride with her bright, fresh, citrus-y bouquet. It included yellow freesia, bells of Ireland, and ivory roses. So gorgeous for a summer day!

We can never resist any little cuties at a wedding!!

The reception at the MAC was filled with the same flowers and colors that were seen at the ceremony.

Our tall silver stands were filled with sprays of snapdragons, bells of Ireland, roses, spray roses, lilies, and filler.

The family tables had a low, mixed arrangement in the bride's silver containers.

What a heavenly event full of color and texture! Thanks to the bride and her family for being such a pleasure to work with!! Best wishes to the bride and groom!

Linear Bride and Bridesmaid Bouquets

When considering what shape of bouquets you may want for your wedding, don't forget about linear bouquets. Here are some examples of some linear bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. Lots of different tall, thin flowers are usually used in linear bouquets. In these snapshots, our bouquets from this past spring include mini callas and cymbidium orchids.

These shots show the bridesmaids' bouquets of mixed pink mini callas and lily grass with green orchids and greenery at the base.

The bride's bouquet was a mix of white orchids and wine mini calla lilies with lily grass and folded variegated hosta leaves at the base.

These linear bouquets have a much more clean, contemporary look versus gardeny and lush. One is not necessarily better than the other. It all just comes down to personal taste and the style of the wedding.
