Sisters has a New Design Studio!

New this summer, Sisters is proud to showcase their "industrial chic" consultation space. We outgrew the cottage and have moved both our production and consultations to our new location at 431 East Clinton Place-- still in the Kirkwood that we love! We enjoy the potential that a new space brings and we look forward to servicing our clients in style and comfort!

Still the same Sisters in a new and improved space!

Bright and Happy

That describes both the bride and the flowers at this wedding!! Lisa and Kevin were married in September. They had a bright, gorgeous day and we got to help with the flowers. Here are some awesome shots of the day by one of our favorite photo artists Clark+Walker Photography.

Lisa's bouquet was a soft, feminine mix of white, ivory, and pink. The bridesmaids had bright fall mixed bouquets with color that jumped right off of their black dresses!

We love the pink in the shoes and the flowers!

There's nothing cuter than a furry friend in your wedding photos!

Bright flowers made another appearance at Lumen for the reception.

Sincere best wishes to Lisa and Kevin! It was a blast helping you with your special day!!

Sweet Summer Wedding

Stacie and Ben were married this past June. Here are some great pictures of their ceremony and reception. They were such a great couple to work with!!

All the bouquets were a mix of greens and pink. Stacie's was lush and full with peonies, roses, orchids, stephanotis and hanging amaranthus to trail.

The reception was a the Ritz. We had two different centerpieces--one with branches and one that had a round, ball shape. Both carried through the greens and pinks and both had hanging amaranthus.

Best wishes to Ben and Stacie! It was a pleasure working with you and your families!

Two Weddings in White and Blue, Flowers by Sisters

These two weddings both had blue and white colors schemes. Take a look at how the flowers and accent colors are used in different ways.

Emily was married this past April. Her bouquet was an all white mix of lilies and other garden flowers.

All of Emily's attendants wore blue and carried all white bouquets as well for a very classic, clean look.

The aisle decorations at Emily's wedding carried through the clean, all white look.

Mary's wedding was this past August. She also used blue and white as her wedding colors. Her bouquet was a loose, lush bouquet in whites and blues.

Mary also chose to incorporate blue accents in her bridesmaids' bouquets to accent the blue in their dresses. (Fun fact: Both Emily and Mary have one bridesmaid in common--Mary's sister!!)

At her reception, Mary opted for lush, gardeny cube vases--some in blue and white and some in green and white.

Even though both Emily and Mary had very similar color schemes, they used the colors of the flowers in different ways.

It was a pleasure working with both brides and their families!!

All White Flowers at Lumen

Sisters Flowers helped with this very classic and sleek look for Lumen. All the flowers were white for this July reception. The color was brought in with the linens and lighting. The taller centerpieces were brought in from the ceremony, which was held under a tent in the backyard of the father of the bride. Another version of the centerpieces includes a cluster arrangement of two vases of flowers and a cube candle. The third centerpiece is a low arrangement with curly willow tips to accent.

Special thanks to Lacy Branch Events who designed this event!

Phalaenopsis Orchids

Phalaenopsis orchids are becoming very popular in the wedding magazines and reality shows. They differ from other orchids with their large, flat petals and smaller throat. Sisters has used them in different ways depending on the look that is intended. Take a peek!

Phals come on very long stems so they work great for long, flowing cascades as seen in these two pictures of the same bouquet.

The individual orchids can also be removed from the stems and used as blooms to accent other flowers in a bouquet.

Here the phals are being used with other flowers to cascade down the side of the cake.

Phalaenopsis orchids are a beautiful addition to any flower arrangement. What they don't tell you on the wedding shows and in the magazines is that they are kind of price-y, so keep that in mind when you are selecting flowers and adding in phals. They can be more affordable as blooms rather than whole stems. However, the Sisters philosophy is that the bride should get whatever flowers they want in their bouquet and make the rest fit into the budget. :)
