Cornman Farms Wedding Flowers | Dexter, Michigan

 

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!

 

 

Lauren and Jeff at Cornman Farms

It was such a genuine joy to be a part of Lauren & Jeff's summer wedding at the always stunning Zingerman's Cornman Farms.  Their celebration was full of joy and warmth and family.  The details were gorgeous, and Silver Thumb captured so many beautiful moments, I had such a hard time picking favorite photos!  Also such a pleasure working with Twofoot Creative who always make things run smoothly and beautifully behind the scenes. Lauren & Jeff's flowers included caramel antike garden roses, romantic antike garden roses, white peonies, white majolica spray roses, blue viburnum berries, white astilbe, mint geranium, silver dollar eucalyptus and a mix of other foliages.  Congratulations Lauren & Jeff!

Alexa and Tony at Zingermans Cornman Farms

It was a perfect summer day on the farm for Alexa and Tony's wedding day at Zingerman's Cornman Farms.  I just loved creating all these flowers with bold colors and textures - bold reds, oranges and raspberries along with blush and peach and lots of lush greens.  We loved creating the ceremony decor at the front porch of the farmhouse - such a gorgeous space and adding foliage garlands and floral accent for a pop of color seemed so perfect.  Thank you so much to the truly talented Melanie Reyes for these beautiful images - so many beautiful moments!  Congratulations Tony and Alexa!

Loved this arch decoration for the ceremony - it's such a perfect spot, and a little eucalyptus foliage and floral accents at the top made it just so special!

Gorgeous celebration at Misty Farm

I just loved Amanda and Jonathan right off the bat when we first met.  Kind, young, fun, cool, confident, and stylish - I was so excited to be a part of their wedding and loved their ideas for interesting textures and a very romantic arch design for the ceremony.  And their wedding at Misty Farm was so beautiful and joyful!  These images from Heather Jowett just blew me away - I was so, so excited from the first sneak peek she posted on Facebook!   I can only imagine how hard it is for these two to pick their favorites - there are just so many  that make me think 'how awesome would it be to blow that up and frame it!' Thank you Amanda and Jonathan - it was really such fun to create these pieces and such an honor to be a part of your wedding!!

 

I was so honored that Jonathan left this review on Wedingwire:

"Tracy did all of the floral work for our wedding, and it was a great choice. She was one of those vendors who you sit down to meet with, and they somehow just read your mind. Seriously, my wife had a very particular type of imagery in mind, but doesn’t know a lot about flowers and was worried we wouldn’t be able to describe it well, but right away Tracy knew what she wanted and did an *excellent* job with it. She’s very upfront with her pricing, and can help come up with several different options to fit in your budget. Just stop reading these reviews and book her. You’ve got a lot of other things to figure out for your wedding, and flowers won’t be one of them if you call Tracy."

And how about Misty Farm moving the ceremony arch design to the reception?!  That's awesome!  It looks gorgeous, and it's really special for a venue to go that extra mile for their couples - awesome people at Misty Farm!

 

 

Autumn wedding at The Valley

When Kassia and I were discussing her bridal bouquet, we were deciding between a more simple, clean lines, rounded ivory bouquet, and something with a little more foliage and natural, flowing shape to it.  I know it would have been gorgeous either way, but I'm especially happy seeing these beautiful images from Nicole Haley Photography - I'm so glad she went for the more flowy option - I think it worked so well!  A bit fun and romantic, but not too over the top! We keep the materials simple so it wouldn't feel too busy - lovely foliages of seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus, white hydrangea, burgundy dahlia and white majolica scary roses.  Thank you Nicole for these beautiful images at The Valley - such a special spot to celebrate!

Spring Misty Farm Wedding

There are these moments when it feel like Christmas when photographers send images of a wedding and it's all the joy of seeing the happy couple celebrating and seeing your floral designs in action, and it's just so wonderful.  This is one of those times!  Thank you  The Compass Points Here for these gorgeous images from Lauren and Brandon's spring wedding at Misty Farm.  They were so wonderful to work with and I just was so looking forward to all the variety and texture in their flowers!  Lauren had some beautiful family glassware mailed in from Massachusetts, and I was also so thrilled that it all arrived safely and was so unique to work with.  The Compass Points Here captured everything so beautifully - even beautiful photos of the rain streaming down outside the barn doors that will be making people wish it rained on their big day!  Congratulations, Lauren and Brandon - so honored to have been a part of your celebration! bride and groom ann arbor misty farm wedding

White oaks farm wedding

I was so excited to see these beautiful images of Laura and Sean's wedding at White Oaks Farm in Dexter.  Melanie Reyes Photography captured the day so beautifully - this family's warmth and joy shines through!  And the moments she captured of the adorable flower girls are precious.  I hope you enjoy.  Congratulations Laura and Sean - it was a genuine pleasure to be a part of this celebration! flower girls down the aisle outdoor barn wedding

These flower girls could not be any cuter!  I just love being asked to create flower crowns - these were mostly soft foliage with lavender and ivory rose accents for a soft, natural look.  The aisle flowers featured dark and light purple with white hydrangea and a splash of yellow, together with silver dollar eucalyptus foliage.

Cottonwood Barn Autumn wedding

It's so wonderful to receive these images from a gorgeous wedding at Cottonwood Barn in Dexter.  It was such a pleasure working with this bride and her vision for a lovely but not too traditional mix of autumnal colors and textures in her wedding flowers.  We used a mix of burgundy cymbidium orchids, orange pincushion protea, mango and plum calla lilies, yellow chrysanthemums, and a mix of textured foliages to create a seasonal look with texture and warmth.  Photo credit to Emily Alt, Watassa Wedding Photography for these lovely images! autumn wedding flowers at cottonwood barn, dexter ann arbor michigan

Cottonwood Barn Partner Vendor

I am so excited to be named a partner vendor for Cottonwood Barn in Dexter, Michigan, just a few minutes from Ann Arbor.  This is really a special place, thoughtfully designed and renovated to be a wedding venue full of character, and it's also practical and modern and all the right ways - a beautiful bridal suite, gorgeous copper bar, and practical things like a beautiful updated bathrooms and a large coatroom.  Wedding guests will feel right at home, and there are lots of options for indoor and outdoor ceremony, reception, and cocktail spaces.   The decor has the right mix of rustic and elegant - the chandelier is amazing!!  

I loved doing this photoshoot with Luna Soiree, Melanie Reyes Photography and Danya Mae Photography at Cottonwood this autumn, and I can't wait to return for some weddings this year!
