Ideas for Two Venues

These snapshots of the Ballpark Hilton and Top of the Met give just a few glimpses of what the rooms look like set up with centerpieces on the tables. There are many different ways to use these two versatile venues. Take a peek!

This table outside of the ballroom at the Hilton was used for the placecard table. We designed a large vase of flowers for the table so that attention would be drawn to the table as guests arrived.

Inside the room, each table had a low, round centerpiece in shades of pinks and green.

These next pictures are of the Top of the Met. This reception had all shades of red flowers in two different centerpieces.

Clear glass decorative candelabras with balls of roses, dahlias, and alstromeria were the center of half of the guest tables.

Round, full bowls of the same flowers decorated the other half of the tables in the room.

There are so many awesome event spaces in this city! We'll post up more pictures of reception ideas as we get them!

St. Francis Xavier and Lumen

Alicia and Chris were married this past September at St. Francis Xavier with a reception at Lumen. Thanks to Aritsan Photography for these gorgeous photos.

The bouquets were beautiful mixes of whites and greens. The all white and ivory bridal bouquet included mini callas, cymbidium orchids, roses, and crystals. The bridesmaids carried ivory roses and green cymbidium orchids with bear grass accents.

These little cuties are one of our favorite parts of the wedding! The little flower girls carried small bouquets of roses, since the church does not allow petals to be thrown.

The bride and groom rented this white box filled with grass from Sisters Flowers. They used it at the entrance of Lumen for their place cards.

Different white flowers for each guest table were chosen to be submerged in tall rectangle vases.

This elaborate cake had green cybidium orchids cascading down the side. The cake stand was also rented from Sisters and was filled with clear rocks, lights, and more orchids.

Special thanks to Sabrina at Proposing Dreams for planning such an awesome event!
Best wishes to the bride and groom!

Red and Black at the City Museum

Becky and Jeff were married and had a party to celebrate all at the City Museum. They had a very contemporary color scheme using red and black. These great shots of the ceremony are from Zettl Photography.

Becky's bouquet was a gorgeous, lush mix of deep red roses and red mini callas. The bridesmaids bouquets complimented with the contemporary-looking red callas.

The groom wore a red calla bout. to match his bride.

Here are some snapshots that Sisters Flowers took of the set-up. All the tables had black cubes vases filled with mixed shades of red flowers.

The aisle was lined with clusters of dark red roses tied onto the chairs.

This cake was decorated with a topper and flower clusters of dark red roses.

Thanks to Zettl Photography for the great personal shots.
Best wishes to Becky and Jeff!

Little Flower Church and MoBot

This wedding took place in September with a ceremony at Little Flower Church and a reception at the Botanical Gardens. Here are some photos taken by our very own Sisters, Chelsea.

Two large vases of mixed flowers in wedding colors decorated the center aisle at Little Flower. This helped make a distinct center aisle, since this altar is in the center of a circular arrangement of pews.

At the reception, tall and short centerpieces were used on the guest tables. Both used pinks and ivories with garden-y flowers stuck as gerbera daisies, roses, and fillers.

Curly willow was used in both the tall and the short arrangements for a whimsical look and feel.

This was a great example of a more traditional ceremony with a less traditional and unique reception.

Wedding at the Fox

We had the pleasure of doing the flowers for Jamie and Andy's wedding in September. They got married and had their reception at the Fox Theatre downtown. Take a look at these great shots! Some were taken by the "Sisters" and the professional pictures are by Browers.

Jamie's bouquet was lush and full of fall shades. It included asiatic lilies, calla lilies, circus roses, purple statice, and greenery around the edge.

Cute, Cute, Cute!! (Photo by Browers)

The happy couple was married on the stage with all their friends and family looking on.

The centerpieces were full arrangements of red roses and purple filler in cube vases. Two different heights of the same arrangements were used.

These taller vases were used on the wedding party and family tables.

Best wishes to the bride and groom!!
Special thanks to Browers Photography for the great shots!
