So many lovely details for Katherine and Sharon’s wedding at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, all captured so beautifully by Amanda Dumouchelle. Loved their floral chuppah, their chinoiserie, lush florals with lots of greens and a palette of pale tones - lavender, whites, blush, champagne, pale gold to go with slate and steel blue bridesmaids dresses. This early summer mix included peonies, garden roses, scabiosa, spirea, hellebore, astrantia.
Happy summer! It's the busiest time of the year for designing wedding flowers, so there's not as much time to blog and post, but I wanted to add these beautiful pictures from Kathleen and Jason's gorgeous summer wedding last year at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Dexter and Webers in Ann Arbor. It's the perfect feel of summer! Lush greens and white and ivory blooms, and a gorgeous natural shaped bouquet. And pretty compote centerpieces added a perfect accent of gold. It was a perfectly joyful celebration!
Thank you to always-fantastic Melanie Reyes Photography for these beautiful images!
A perfect summer palette of raspberry and blush pinks, ivory, and lots of lush textures and greens for this lovely wedding at Sharon Mills. We even had amazing smelling fresh sage and raspberries in the bouquets - loving something different and special! Boutonnieres were a sweet mix of greens and herbs, and loved the pin on corsages, too - sweet, petite herbal bundles. The flower girl's all-foliage pomander was a unique, natural detail. And we loved decorating the arch put up by the groom and his father with olive and eucalyptus and blooms of color!
Thank you for the beautiful images by super awesome Melanie Reyes Photography.
As we keep our fingers crossed for spring (!) I'm remembering some outside highlights of last season and so grateful to share these images of Sunset Cove B&B. This wedding was beautiful, and Sunset Cove is just so magical and special and intimate. I couldn't believe this retreat was so close to Ann Arbor! So grateful to Cat Carty Buswell for sharing these. I loved these bright, joyful arrangements!
Chelsea and Jake's summer Cornman Farms wedding was beautiful, natural, joyful - lots of lush green foliage, natural textures, and dahlias! Oh these dahlias! - in ivory, champagne, blush - dahlias dahlias everywhere! The ceremony arch with green foliages and floral accents of dahlias was just perfectly seasonal and soft. And for the table centerpieces the greenery was again the star - we modified the look of a foliage garland and made it into a ring with flower clusters accenting and pillar candles in the center with gold accents.
It was such a joy to meet Chelsea on her wedding day. Planning from California, we didn't get to meet in person until her wedding morning, and it's always really special to meet those brides for the first time at such a special time.
All these gorgeous images from Ryan Inman - ryaninman.com - thank you so much for sharing these! Congratulations Chelsea and Jake!
The fireplace at Zingerman's Cornman Farms is just perfect! So cozy and inviting and special - perfect for an intimate winter wedding. And Sally and Dylan's December wedding was just so joyful and cozy, warm and beautiful. I was so excited to meet Sally for the first time on her wedding day! Coming from Washington DC, they had been planning from out of town and I think it's always extra special to meet the bride on her wedding morning, handing her her bouquet! My cell phone rang as I drove away after setting up, sneaking out just as the couple were arriving at the reception, and it was Sally calling to tell me how she loved the reception flowers - it was exactly what she envisioned - and I was just so thrilled - it always means so much to be me know that the flowers were loved and I was especially excited to get that call right away!
So much gratitude to Kate Touzel for sharing these beautiful images - thank you, these are stunning!
Lisa and Jason's wedding was truly beautiful in every way. And I am just so thrilled that these amazing images by Niki Marie Photo speak for themselves - I'm struggling to explain the love, the loveliness, the joy.. but it's captured... like a thousand words. Thank you Niki - these are amazing!
The first time that Lisa and I talked about her bouquet I wrote down "SHOWSTOPPER!" - and I was so excited that Lisa gave me the green light to go for something spectactular!
I also feel a little sad posting this because I miss emailing and chatting with Lisa - she is one of those people with a genuine warmth that comes through from the very first minute. I just felt so lucky to be able to work with her and get to know her, and I was looking forward to this wedding for months and months. And everything about Lisa and Jason's day at Weller's carriage house in Saline was warm and joyful and truly beautiful. Seriously beautiful. Like the shoes Lisa designed herself! I loved working in lots of little accents of champagne gold and navy along with the mauve and blush tones - so much sophisticated, gardeny pretty!
Thank you Lisa and Jason - I felt truly lucky to be a part of your celebration. Big love to you guys! YOU were the SHOWSTOPPERS that day - so much joy and love coming through this celebration!
A little about the flowers here... we used a mix of blush, champagne, mauve, ivory blooms and lots of lush foliages and clusters of champagne gold berries. For the ceremony space, we hung champagne gold terracotta pots from macrame hangars filled with a lush mix of blooms. We loved how the mix of heights helped to frame the ceremony space and make it more intimate for Lisa and Jason.
Autumn dahlia love at this gorgeous wedding at Frutig Farms Misty Farm. Misty always feels like such an oasis, yet so close to Ann Arbor! Bride Rachel is a dahlia lover, and I was looking forward to this wedding all year, bringing in over 400 dahlias from amazing local growers. Especially loved decorating the arch at Misty for Rachel's ceremony - full of blush, peach, burgundy dahlias and snapdragons. It was a beautiful celebration with lots of special details, and we were so honored to create these pieces! Thank you so much to Nicole Haley who captured this wedding so beautifully!
A perfect autumn day for a campus wedding at the Michigan League for Miriam and Daniel! It was a true joy to be a part of this celebration with so many personal and fun details at the Michigan League Ballroom and such a joyful group! Loved setting up the chuappah flowers for their ceremony in the courtyard garden and the mix of merlot and champagne tones with lots of texture in the flowers. Thank you Chelsea Brown for these beautiful photos! Thank you and congratulations Miriam and Daniel - thank you for letting me be a part of your awesome day!
