Mark and Sarah – Winter Wedding at the Michigan League03/02/2017

Mark and Sarah had a gorgeous winter celebration at the Michigan League Ballroom captured so beautifully by Violet Light Photography.   Sophisticated, stylish and seasonal, Sarah wanted flowers with natural styling and interesting textures.   Loose but not too loose flowing pieces and large but not too large bouquets.  She wanted her bouquet to be a statement piece, and I hope she loved it as much as I did – I loved the blush and cranberry tones that she picked and the lush textures and natural oblong, cascading shape.  And the ceremony arch design – I loved getting to create this piece, and I loved the arch that Sarah’s dad created for the occasion – so much so that I bought it and can now share it with other couples.  Congratulations Sarah and Mark, it was wonderful to be a part of your celebration!

Jen and Will – Downtown Ann Arbor Wedding02/01/2017

It was a beautiful summer day for Jen and Will’s downtown Ann Arbor wedding, and we just loved these gorgeous images from Melissa Elaine Photography!   So many classic elegant downtown Ann Arbor moments with their ceremony right near campus at First Congregational Church, photos in the law quad and art museum, and reception at Vinology – lovely!  Congratulations Jen and Will!

We love doing these bracelet style corsages for mothers – a little more sophisticated than the elastic wristbands of the past!  This one included hellebore and lily of the valley.

And we love a classic groom boutonniere of blush majolica spray roses and buds.

There is nothing better than a friend calling to ask if you can put together something lovely for an adorable couple – it’s so great to be able to share a little floral piece or two and hope it makes someone’s day!  Bonus when that friend happens to be an incredibly talented photographer and there are gorgeous photos to inspire afterward!  Thank you so much Dayna of Dayna Mae Photography  – this winter couple is making me all kinds of cozy!  Perfect doses of fun and joy and sweet and romantic, a festive splash of red on a perfect wintry Michigan day.  These are so warm and perfect and please see more images and Dayna’s adorable story from the day here.

Allie and John at Waldenwoods01/05/2017

Such a beautiful celebration at Waldenwoods for Allie and John this autumn!  Thank you so much to Ray Anthony Photography for capturing these lovely images and sharing so generously!

We had a great time working with rich autumnal colors and textures as the weather and mood were shifting from summer to autumn.   We had beautiful burgundy dahlias, blush garden roses, lush foliages with berries and great textures – Allie picked such beautiful elements and we just love how it came together for a natural, colorful, sophisticated look.

We loved decorating the large pergola for Allie & John’s ceremony, and were so thrilled that the weather cleared in time to get outside for a blue sky ceremony!  It was still raining outside when we set it up with fingers crossed, and we were so thrilled it worked out so beautifully!  Congratulations Allie and John!

Katie & Joe at Earhart Manor11/30/2016

Katie and Joe’s Earhart Manor wedding was stylish and sophisticated and joyful and it was just such an honor to be a part of this celebration!  Really – I have been thinking about this wedding all year since the summer and I am so grateful to Rachel Smaller Photography for sharing these images with me.  These are truly stunning!  And I am so excited to share them with you.  Most of all, thank you Katie and Joe, and wishing you so much love and laughter.

 

So many details to love!  This first look is so perfect!  Katie’s gold shoes!  And and why not slip into a flower crown for the reception?
