Wedding at FK Event Space

This new event space down town is a blank slate when it comes to decor. Here is how one of our clients used it for their ceremony this past February.

(Snapshots by Chelsea!)

The ceremony decor included our uncovered canopy and two small tables with our crystal trees to frame the bride and groom.

These pics are of our set-up. We used the event space's freight elevator to transport our materials to the ceremony and reception rooms.

Going up, Chelsea!?!

The flowers were a mix of all reds. Calla lilies, roses, and dahlias were used in the bridal bouquet. The same red color scheme was used in the bridesmaids' bouquets and at the reception.

Fruit and Flowers

Sisters designed these lush, fall arrangements for a rehearsal dinner last October. Our clients wanted to incorporate lots of texture and interest for the season. Fall roses, hydrangea, daises, berries and curly willow worked well together in the arrangements. We used red apples inside the cylinder vases to continue the fall color low on the table.

Fun with fruit and flowers!

Busch Stadium Ceremony

Erin and Colin were married last October at the stadium. HUGE fans of the Cardinals, they cheered for their team, while secretly hoping there would be no game at the stadium on October 30th! No game meant a great wedding for a cute couple!

The bride and groom's picture lit up the big screen!

Erin carried a bouquet of white, green and pink. (Not Cardinal red!) It included lots of texture using succulents and orchids.

The bridesmaids' flowers were very similar to the bride's with a little more pink added in.

Getting ready for the ceremony!

The reception was held at Mad Art Gallery. The cocktail tables were decorated with floating succulents (similar to the ones used in Erin's bouquet), candles and petals.

The guest tables had three vases-one with submerged variegated lily grass, one with a green submerged orchid and one with curly willow and white orchids. A very modern look for a modern venue.

Best wishes to the bride and groom for a successful 2010--for their marriage and the Cardinals!!

Crystal Moss Tree

Many of you have seen our black wrought iron trees with hanging crystals and votives. We have rented and decorated them for several events. We have blogged many times about the very different ways these trees can be used for each individual event. This moss version of the crystal tree is one of our new favorites. We decorated this one for the Busch Stadium wedding show that we recently attended. All the natural elements we used gave this "enchanted" tree an organic yet eclectic look.

We added curly willow branches to the black metal of the tree to soften the base. We added reindeer moss balls to the branches in addition to the hanging crystal and votives. Spanish moss was also used to hang from the branches to add another natural dimension.

The base of the tree was built up with four different types of moss, lotus pods, green orchids and river rock. Satellite cube vases of the river rock and green orchids accented the tree trunk.

This is just one of the MANY ways these trees can be used. Meet with Sisters to discuss this design or another creative look for your event!

Sisters Honored at 2010 ISES Awards!

Sisters Flowers had a great night last Friday! The annual ISES Awards were held, recognizing St. Louis wedding vendors. Sisters was asked to provide a few centerpieces for the tables and was nominated for an award. We were so thrilled to win "Best Florist" for an event with a flower budget $10,000 or less!! The icing on the cake was winning the award two years in a row! Here are some pics of the event.

The party was held at the Palladium with a Cirque du Soleil theme. Here are some set-up shots of the centerpieces we provided for the night.

Tall, rectangle vases were filled with curly willow branches, peacock feathers and purple tulips. Hanging on the outside of the vase were curly gold wires with purple dendrobium orchid blooms. We thought this was a fun way to stay with the Cirque du Soleil theme.

The Palladium looked awesome all decorated for the dinner! There were performers in costume and on stilts for the entertainment of the guests!
There were even female performers that did routines high above with nothing but flowing fabric holding them up!
The Sisters staff just had to get a picture with one of their favorite "stilt men" of the night! (From left to right-Shelly, Kirsten, Emily, Chelsea and Jennifer)
Our centerpieces looked great on the tables, too! It was fun to get to come back to an event and enjoy it, rather than set it up and leave before the event starts-like we do every other weekend!
We were a little nervous when it came time for the awards, but we were honored to hear our named called!!
Our table congratulates Emily and Sisters Flowers!

We were also thrilled to present two awards of the night.
Emily presented in one category.........

.......and Shelly presented in another.

Both awards went to the staff at Exclusive Events!

It was a fun night and we were so happy to be there and to be honored. Thanks to all our brides and grooms and their families who make what we do possible!

Our staff rocks and our supportive families rock, too! We wouldn't have success without all of you!!

Best Men and Best Friends

This is a great story about two weddings that Sisters Flowers helped with in 2008.

Max and Adam have been life-long friends. When Rachel and Max were married August 31st at Forest Park Golf Club, it seemed natural that Adam would be Max's best man. Rachel and Max had a bright and sunny wedding day and Sisters was there to do the flowers and decorate our chuppah for the ceremony.

(Rachel and Max enjoy time with their wedding party. Kneeling on the left is the best man, Adam.)

(Sisters' chuppah decorated for the ceremony outdoors at Forest Park Golf Club.)

Six short weeks later, Elizabeth and Adam (Max's best man) had their wedding and reception at the St. Charles Convention Center. Of course, Max supported his friend by being Adam's best man. Once again, Sisters Flowers was there to help out with the flowers and chuppah decor.

(Elizabeth and Adam enjoy their wedding day. Best man and former groom, Max, is right of the groom.)

(Sisters' decorated chuppah was a part of Adam and Elizabeth's ceremony.)
How awesome for two good friends to be a part of each other's special day!
We were delighted to be a part of both weddings and help out two wonderful couples!
