June Bride

Let's warm our thoughts from chilly December and think about weddings in June! This happy couple, Christine and Jonathan, tied the knot this past June when it was much, much warmer! They were married at Bethel Lutheran Church with a reception at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Monsanto Hall. (Photos by Bernie Elking Photography)

Christine's bouquet was a mix of white peonies, light pink and ivory roses. We thought the flowers were as sweet as the bride's smile!!

Christine's make-up artist, Amanda Harris, did a great job highlighting the bride's naturally beautiful features. (Contact Amanda at 314-223-3836)

The bridesmaids carried mixed pink gerber daisy bouquets accented with jade berries.

The aisle at the church was lined with these silver julep cups filled to the top with peonies and roses. These cups were easily transported to the reception and used there to decorate.

The guest tables at Monsanto Hall had tall trumpet vases with curly willow branches, white hydrangea, and light pink roses for a very gardeny look at the gardens!

All our best to the bride, groom, and their lovely families!!

A Wedding at Home

This bride had an intimate ceremony at her parents home and an all out bash at the History Museum. Burns Photography took these shots of the day.

The bridal bouquet included orchids, mini callas, roses, spray roses, and waxflower filler in shades of light pink and ivory.

The rest of the wedding party flowers accented the bridal bouquet with the bridesmaids' bouquets showcasing the same flowers as the bride's, just in more vibrant pinks.

We also designed a few pieces to match the decor inside the house.

The ceremony was held outside in the garden.

This was the awesome party to celebrate at the History Museum.

A big thank you to Sabrina from Proposing Dreams for making the whole day seem effortless!
Our congratulations to Katie and Andrew for a beautiful wedding!! All our best for your future together!

Yellow, Blue, and Books

October was a busy month at Sisters. This wedding was a highlight for us. Jazzy and Brian were married on October 10th. They had their ceremony at the Jewel Box and their reception at the City Museum. Here are some awesome detail shots from Burns Photography.

Jazzy's bouquet was blue and white--hydrangeas, roses, and a dragonfly pin.

Yellow was the accent color used in the bridesmaids' bouquets and on the chuppah.

The guys all had mini calla bouts.--white for the groom and yellow for the groomsmen.

Our chuppah at the Jewel Box.

The head table was lined with yellow and white flowers over the blue table runners.

Tall and short centerpieces decorated the guest tables.

And here's where the books come in.....various yellow books were stacked underneath blue cubes of yellow flowers on some of the guest tables.

Tall spheres of blue and white flowers topped trumpet vases on the opposite guest tables.

Yellow and white flowers accompanied this bright cake.
Special thanks to Shayna of St. Louis Wedding Consultants for coordinating this bright and unique event!!
Best wishes to Jazzy and Brian for a wonderful first year together and many more to come!

Peonies in November!

The last weekend in November is not typically the time of year that you would expect to see peonies. Our bride, Sara, really loves peonies, so we did all we could to get them for her bouquet, even in the off season. Here are some photos taken by Chelsea that show just how gorgeous these November peonies were!

We mixed the white peonies with sahara roses for this lush bridal bouquet.

Not every seasonal flower will cooperate and be this pretty or even available when they are out of season. This is just one of those examples of good fortune and all the planets being aligned just right!! Sisters Flowers will always try to make their clients happy--even when it means ordering June peonies in November!!

Electric Purple, Fuchsia, and Red

Chrissy and Dave were married this past month at St. George in Afton and had an impressive and beautiful reception at the Electricians Hall. We worked on this wedding with Lacy Branch Events. Lacy and her staff worked seamlessly with the hall and all the vendors to transform the reception space! Take a peek at some of the day's highlights! (Photos by Von Devore Photography.)

The beautiful bride and the charismatic Lacy Branch!

All of the personal flowers were a mix of royal purples, red, and fuchsia. They included roses, gerber daisies, spray roses, hydrangea, and little flower crystals. These bouquets really spotlighted the bride and blended well with the bridesmaids' dresses.

The reception design used the purples, reds, and pinks differently for the tables. Here, the colors were separated-- reds and pinks together, and the purples and lavenders paired.

Some of the centerpieces were taller arrangements in cylinders and others were long and low rectangles and squares.

Lighting was an important element in the hall, so every low centerpiece was illuminated with LEDs to make the tables glow.

The cake was topped with a few gerbers on each layer, but the backdrop of lighting and fabric really made all the difference!

Special thanks to Lacy Branch Events for coordinating this event! As always, we had fun working with you!
Best wishes to Chrissy and Dave and their families!!
