Intimate Matthaei Botanical Garden Wedding

When I was emailing with Carrie about her bridal bouquet, I mentioned using seeded eucalyptus, and she said "That sounds great!  I work with eucalyptus trees!"  How neat is that?! Carrie was planning her winter Ann Arbor wedding from Australia, and I was so pleased to get to create this natural, textural bouquet for her.  And I was even more excited to receive these lovely photos from Nicole Haley Photography, who captured this lovely, intimate, joyful celebration so naturally.  Nicole captured such beautiful images at the wedding ceremony at Matthaei Botanical Garden, and I love the really lovely modern spots she found on the grounds there.  And I love that with an intimate group, they were able to have their reception seated at one long table at Aventura downtown - sounds like a fantastic evening out!

Carrie's bouquet featured lots of textured foliages - seeded eucalyptus and bay leaf as well as green mini cymbidium orchids, blush majolica spray roses, pink protea (from Australia!) and fern curls.  Congratulations!

Autumn bliss at Matthaei botanic gardens

This wedding is a personal favorite for so, so many reasons.  I have been so excited to share these images with you of Natalie and Mike's blissful wedding last autumn at the University of Michigan's Matthaei Botanical Gardens.  I can't say enough how happy these images from Abby Rose make me, and just how beautifully she captured the joy of this truly wonderful couple (and Abby's shared even more amazing images of their day!).  So truly honored to have been a part of this celebration!
