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.

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.

sodo park wedding

Posted on: October 26th, 2014 by melanie No Comments

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

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.

WEDDING SHOWS

Posted on: January 18th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Its January, its cold and grey and there isn’t much going on. But wait, its wedding show season!! They are out there almost every weekend through the spring. Super fun and inspirational, its a chance to meet vendors and get ideas. This Year I will be in the boutique wedding show Weddings in Woodinville, at JM Cellars. We defiantly have a great team again this year for our spanish inspired wedding. The whole winery is set up for a ceremony and reception, wine tasting and little bites are available for sampling. Vintage ambiance supplied the  rental decor, Melody at MG Davis events did the styling and I am suppling the flowers of course. Jennifer Tai will be there if you would like to speak to a photographer and see her work, she is phenomenal! Rustic, elegant, and a little bit spanish come by and see all the wonderful ideas  we came up with.

The Farm Kitchen is another venue you should see if you like the country feel and lots of flowers. Their open house is on February 10, come by and see the farm and my table. Pink or purple, I am still deciding on the flowers.Farm Kitchen Open House Flyer

Christmas Wedding

Posted on: December 31st, 2012 by melanie No Comments

So what shall we do on the last day of the year? How about remembering a christmas wedding at Newcastle Golf Club last December. The bride wanted a winter wonderland wedding so that is what we did. Melody Davis at MG Davis Events and I designed the decor form table cloths to Christmas trees. We used the unusual accent color of lavender for the flowers, it blended so well with all the textures and trees.

Summer Reception

Posted on: November 26th, 2012 by melanie No Comments

We showed a lovely summer ceremony the other day, here is the reception. Blush, peach, pink and a bit of lavender made for beautiful wedding flowers at the Fram Kitchen. Burlap table runners were a nice contrast and added texture to the ivory linens. Flowers from the aisle were placed on the tables and we added sweet little arrangements made in bottles. Succulents in rustic tin cans and hobnail votive holders were a great addition to eclectic look. The bride is a German teacher so all the tables were numbered in german. It is alway a great idea to personalize your wedding is someway that is meaningful to you but is also enjoyed by your guests and adds to the decor.
