Recently converted lover of winter weddings here. All the coziness and warmth and joy - when it’s cold outside and there’s candlelight inside, and it’s just so romantic. This wedding at Ann Arbor’s Cobblestone Farm and reception at Weber’s was just gorgeous and an honor to be a part of. I loved this lush color palette of jewel toned cranberry, amethyst purple, navy blue, reds, and lots of textured foliages. So thrilled to share these beautiful images with you from Matt + Ashley Photography.
Allison and Brad’s Michigan League wedding was elegant and beautiful and I just loved this collection of blooms in her bouquet. We had been working with this beautiful recipe of flowers, and after the royal wedding this past summer, Allison mentioned that she was really inspired by the shape and size of Meghan Markle’s bouquet - petite and chic. We put together this collection with lots of variety and textural elements but kept it on the petite side for a sophisticated feel. Just love this. Thank you First Comes Love Photo for these gorgeous images. Planning by Staci at Who’s Got the Time? Congratulations Ally and Brad!
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!
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!
Congratulations Katherine and Brian! It was such a pleasure to get to design in Zingerman's new downtown Ann Arbor space in the old greyhound bus station - the Greyline. Katherine and Brian had a beautiful wedding day and it was so wonderful to be able to add lush, natural greens and splashes of burgundies to the space. So many lovely green textures, including giant foliage garlands draping the mirrors in the entryway and at the cake table. Lots of lovely details - I just loved how the copper toned terracotta pots turned out in the centerpieces! Thank you so much to Ester Cobe Photography for these beautiful images!
So excited to share these images from Emily & Aniket's summer wedding celebration at Earhart Manor. Alison from First Comes Love Photo captured so many sweet and fun moments - baby toes! dancing in the the rain! flower girl twirling! So many moments that I know will be precious to Emily and Aniket when they look back on their special day. So many wonderful details coordinated by Julie of J. Eliza Events (and Julie includes a lovely description of the day and epic rainstorm on her blog) - it was so great to be a part of this celebration, and Emily and Aniket even generously donated their flowers to Arbor Hospice afterward (I couldn't believe how great these flowers still looked the day after). On the floral side, we were so excited by these bright, bold colors - jewel tones paired with more muted peaches and blushes, a foliage garland accented with flowers and gold and silver candles down the head table, and foliage garlands for the couple's hindu ceremony. So excited to share this, and so lovely to be a part of this lovely celebration!
