Allie and John at Waldenwoods

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!

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!

Feeling autumnal!

It's feeling properly autumn!  I loved creating this burgundy bouquet with accents of peach, orange, coral, and ivory for a wedding this past weekend at University of Michigan's Matthaei Botanic Gardens in Ann Arbor.  It was a lovely mix of autumnal flowers, including dahlias, local zinnias and scabiosa.  Lovely textures and foliage - such a pleasure to make this for  wonderful bride!
