Pocketbook Friendly Wedding Flowers at the Edgewater

Posted on: April 7th, 2017 by melanie No Comments

It was kind of an overcast day in autumn but we just keep going in Seattle even if it is a wedding. Our amazing bride chose blue and burgundy as her  color palate which I thought would be much harder than it was but since red is in abundance in the fall it was pretty easy. With the back drop of grey skies and cold water, the warm colors were perfect at the Edgewater Hotel. We used garden roses, spray roses, scabiosa and a mix of local flowers for the brides “Lexy” bouquet. She wanted trailing ribbons too so of course thats what we did. The ceremony was flanked with tall branches of fall foliage, gold urns and log pedestals provided by the planner. The aisle was lined with pillar candles for a romantic glow. Guest tables, dressed with blue linens, were decorated with our gold vase arrangements and a few pumpkin jars of flowers. Spice jars, pumpkin jars and the brides bouquet were perfect on the sweet heart table. Little jars were used on the escort card table as well. Lots of details were provided by the bride and Amber from A Rene. It doesn’t look like a budget friendly wedding but it was.

 

The bride chose our Pocketbook line of wedding flowers, beautiful flowers at a great price. The items she chose were our Lexy brides bouquet, Ceci bridesmaids bouquet, pumpkin jars, spice jars, gold vase centerpieces, large arrangements. The bride and Planner provided all the additional decor to make this pretty wedding the best ever.

Kiana Lodge Fall Wedding

Posted on: March 7th, 2017 by melanie No Comments

Beautiful autumn flowers are blooming in abundance this time of year. We especially love the trailing hops available only in the fall. Vines with their loose, twisting, trailing nature give the relaxed garden feel we are always longing for. Our Brides billowy veil and gorgeous custom gown, made with gold thread, is the perfect foil for a bit of hops and lush cafe dahlia, garden rose bouquet. Maris events handles all the many details from Pashmina shawls to carnival games, even a fortune teller. Kiana lodge is always the perfect backdrop for a northwest wedding, the lodge, the sound, the garden, the forest, you have it all. View More: http://rickplusanna.pass.us/caraplusedmund

The ceremony backdrop was the sound itself so we added a bit of drama to the beginning of the aisle with large arrangements in grey urns and rustic farm house lanterns.

The atrium at Kiana lodge was set with farm tables, vintage china and neutral table runners. Long tables need lots of decor so we started with compote arrangements filled with garden roses, vines, crabapple branches, rusty mums, lisianthus and lots of foliage. Between the compotes we placed terra cotta and wire baskets with masses of cafe dahlias. Little bottles of ranunculus and gold votive candles finish the look.

Summer at the Farm Kitchen

Posted on: January 16th, 2016 by melanie No Comments

Peachy pink flowers fresh from the garden are what we used for this super sweet Farm Kitchen wedding. The Farm Kitchen has a relaxed country feel with display and working gardens, orchards and a bachelors cabin. For this wedding we chose locally grown flowers and some from our own cutting garden. Blush garden roses, fruit, clematis, cafe dahlias, vines and sage hydrangeas in pale shades are some of the flowers we used in Sarah’s bridal bouquet. We took inspiration from her bouquet and used them for the ceremony aisle and for the reception tables. Sarah’s beautiful dress from the dress theory in Seattle, we love them. Photos by Kristen Marie, what can I say…Cake, Black Bird Bakery on Bainbridge Island.

Lily of the Valley Bridal Bouquet

Posted on: January 5th, 2015 by melanie No Comments

One of my favorite flowers is Lily of the Valley, the quintessential flower of British wedding flowers. I had never seen one until we moved to a new home when I was about 12. A tiny patch bloomed by the front door every May, somewhat hidden by baby tears and camellia bushes. Now that I live on Bainbridge Island, where Lily of the Valley are easy to grow, my patch of flowers is spreading like mad. But if you want them in your brides bouquet they are still quite special.

The tiny white bells are sold in bunches of 10 with their bright green leaves, they wilt like mad and are super expensive. So  when a bride getting married in August wants a brides bouquet just like Catherine Middelton carried any florist would cringe just a little. But we are always up for a challenge especially if it is a flower close to our heart. For our version of the famous bouquet we used 80 stems of individually wired lilies, freesia, sweet william, myrtle and a few rose buds.

fIts always so fun to work with Michelle at Married and More with Michelle so when she called and said she had a fun couple I was super excited. Amanda and Matt were so sweet and their style shows in this fun and whimsical wedding. Amanda designed all the paper products for her wedding and we took our color inspiration from those colors. Mint, pink and blue could turn out to be a muddle but I love how everything turned out. The pink color came from the Ballerina rose. a pretty single rose that is very difficult to get. Amanda and Matt were engaged under a rose arbor covered with Ballerina so we had to have them on the Chuppah. For the aisle we filled mint vases with minty colored flowers and foliages with light pink and green tulips. A touch of blue came from the velvet ribbon we used to hang them from chairs. Each guest table had a blue glass table filled with spring flowers in pink and green with blue votive holders. I love this wedding and this super cool couple.

Elegant Marries Dashing

Posted on: October 31st, 2013 by melanie No Comments

I was having trouble coming up with one word to describe Elizabeth, beautiful, classic, gracious but I think elegant encompasses all of those qualities. Then there is the groom well what can I say, dashing sums it up. Together they seem so right. elegant bride and a dashing groom

Pickering Barn Wedding

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Early spring around here can be cold and rainy so why not add some bright color. The Pickering Barn painted in bold barn red is a great foil for  bright orange and yellow flowers. I made all the personal flowers for this beautiful bride and her friends and family pitched in and did all the rest. A u-haul truck full of decor arrived along with a trailer containing a super cute homemade arbor. The photos were sent to me by Catalina Jean Photography. She is new to Portland but will happily travel to our area.

Super Cute DIY Centerpeices

Posted on: March 12th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

How about this for a super cute, super easy DIY project for your wedding. Leave the bottles in the pack for round tables or line them up for a long table. The pretty pink ranunculus are fairly expensive in the summer so try dahlias instead. Dahlias come in wonderful colors and have fun buds that should be incorporated into the arrangements. Get started early by collecting and painting your bottles. Dont wait until the night before to arrange your flowers, they will last a few days in the vases, just remove any wilted flowers as you set them on the tables.

JM Cellars Wedding

Posted on: February 25th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

JM Cellars is such a special place for a wedding. The wedding has to be on the small side, but every inch of the winery is lovely. Our bride planned an intimate wedding for sixteen from across the country. Beckie from Vintage Ambiance designed and hung the romantic chandelier. MBF added one large arrangement along with an eclectic mix of sweet little flowers to the single guest table. The bride was dresses in lace so we made a bouquet with lots of textures and soft colors.
