Blue and Yellow

Elise and Ben were married this past May. Blue and yellow were their wedding colors, so we designed a flower style around that. Take a look at these beautiful shots taken by Cary Klein.

Elise carried a bouquet of blue hydrangea with yellow tulips and freesia. It was a very garden-y look with a vintage feel.

The girls carried yellow gerber daisies and blue delphinium to continue the garden-y look.

The aisle was lined with the bride's blue hydrangea.

The men wore yellow freesia, with the groom in yellow and blue.

We wish Elise and Ben all the best!

Yellow and Coral -- Part 2

Here they are--as promised!! These shots are taken by Clary Photo of Melissa and Patrick's July 4th wedding in St. Charles. Take a look!!

As mentioned in the last blog, the bridal bouquet was a mix of coral roses with rhinestone accents surrounded by bright yellow freesia.

The bridesmaids' bouquets were the same flowers as the bridal bouquet, but the freesia was mixed in with the roses.

The flower girls even had a mini bouquet to carry down the aisle.

Melissa and Patrick's reception was held at the Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles.

Some of the tables had these garden-y ginger gars filled with yellow and coral roses, spray roses, gerbers, and filler.

The other tables had these tall vases with the same flowers.

Special thanks for Clary Pfeiffer for these awesome photos!!

Congratulations to Melissa and Patrick! We wish you all the best!

Yellow and Coral -- Part 1

Melissa and Patrick were married on 7-4-09 in St. Charles. Melissa loved the idea of having coral and yellow flowers at her wedding. Here are some snapshots of the day that we took while delivering the flowers.

The bridal bouquet was a combination of coral roses with rhinestone accents and bright yellow freesia around the outside.

Anything this beautiful bride carried would have been gorgeous!! She loved the yellow and coral!

Here are some shots of the decorations we did inside St. Cletus Church in St. Charles. We tied small clusters of yellow and coral gerbers to the pews to line the aisle.

We also brought altar vases in the wedding flowers and colors, as well as a unity piece with candles.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this blog with some of the professional shots from Melissa and Patrick's big day--taken by Clary Pfeiffer.

Wedding at Grand Basin and the Chase

Meryl and Scott were married in June at the Grand Basin. They had a beautiful day for a wedding. Take a look at these shots from Benton Park Photography.

The wedding colors were blue and white. Meryl's attendant carried a bouquet of all white and blue hydrangea.

Meryl carried a bouquet of all white peonies with a rhinestone accent.

For the ceremony, we filled our two large urns with all white flowers to frame the couple and the scenery in the park.

The reception was held at the Chase Park Plaza in the Zodiac Room.

All of the tables had a tall silver stand filled with white dendrobium orchids.

The white flowers and silver containers complimented the white and silver of the linens and the blues in the Zodiac Room. As always, the staff at the Chase was very helpful and a real pleasure to work with! (We actually had two weddings at the Chase this same day--this one upstairs and another in the downstairs ballroom!)

Thanks to the Scott and Meryl. It was fun working with you and we wish you all the best for your future together!

Winder Wedding Bouquet

For all you brides out there who are looking ahead to your winter weddings, here are two winter flowers that are available to you in your season and together in no other season. This bouquet has amaryllis and tulips- two very elegant and winter-y flowers that we LOVE together. Take a look........

Emily was our bride from this past January. She wanted a very simple, elegant look for her flowers. We suggested these two types of blooms to also give her flowers a seasonal feel without being too overdone.

The amaryllis have a very large bloom and come in white, red, or burgundy. They are available from approximately November through mid-March. Mixed with the tulips or standing alone, they are an awesome flower that most people don't think to use in their wedding, which makes them unique!

The bride carried fuchsia mini gerbers, white mini callas, purple lisianthus, and bright pink roses. The bridesmaids had fuchsia gerbers and purple filler.

Best wishes to the bride and groom!!
