Cobblestone Farm winter wedding | Ann Arbor wedding flowers

 

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.

 

Autumn Cornman Farms Wedding | Dexter wedding flowers

 

So many beautiful things to rave about - Sarah and Dave’s gorgeous autumn wedding at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms with so many special details captured beautifully by Nicole Haley Photography, planning by fantastic Melissa Marie Events. Everything about this one felt so warm and joyful, and I truly loved planning the details with Sarah. Such a beautiful palette of soft blues with burgundy, blush, pale gold, ivory and navy berries, with special touches of green hellebore and fresh herbs. The head table was adorned with lush green smilax foliage and candles with a warm glow. Thank you Sarah and Dave - it was a complete joy to be a part of your celebration!

Cornman Farms Wedding Flowers | Dexter, Michigan

 

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!

 

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!

Mark and Sarah - Winter Wedding at the Michigan League

Mark and Sarah had a gorgeous winter celebration at the Michigan League Ballroom captured so beautifully by Violet Light Photography.   Sophisticated, stylish and seasonal, Sarah wanted flowers with natural styling and interesting textures.   Loose but not too loose flowing pieces and large but not too large bouquets.  She wanted her bouquet to be a statement piece, and I hope she loved it as much as I did - I loved the blush and cranberry tones that she picked and the lush textures and natural oblong, cascading shape.  And the ceremony arch design - I loved getting to create this piece, and I loved the arch that Sarah's dad created for the occasion - so much so that I bought it and can now share it with other couples.  Congratulations Sarah and Mark, it was wonderful to be a part of your celebration!

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!

Cassie and Alan - Autumn at Ann Arbor Distilling Company

This wedding was classic and elegant and filed with thoughtful details.  I was so excited when I heard about this reception at Ann Arbor Distilling Company - a warehouse style wedding reception right here in Ann Arbor!  And so wonderful to get to work with truly talented vendors Melanie Reyes Photography and J.Eliza Events - so wonderful to get to be part of this team! Cassie and Alan's flowers featured lush greens and natural, textural elements (including kale!), along with a perfect autumnal splash of gold and copper - we painted succulents and apples in metallic tones and they added just that splash of something unique!  Hope you love these as much as we do!

autumn flowers

There's something special about the colors of autumn in Ann Arbor and the special tones of autumnal flowers that excites me every year.  Autumn brings in the most amazing dahlias and knock-out chrysanthemums, berries and textures and foliages and it's just a special time to be designing. I loved creating these pieces for a wedding celebration at the Gandy Dancer in downtown Ann Arbor, coordinated by Twofoot Creative.  These centerpieces and accent pieces featured golden chrysanthemums, orange ranunculus, burgundy snapdragons, blush spray roses, campanella peach roses, seeded eucalyptus, olive branches (with olives!), burgundy dahlias, blue privet berries, and a gold succulents, in a gold compote dish.  So thankful for this autumn abundance!

Oh how this pink romantic antike garden rose stole the show!  I could not take my eyes off these the whole time we were designing these centerpieces for a sophisticated garden wedding reception at Earhart Manor in Ann Arbor.  Centerpieces also included white anemone, queen anne's lace, orange free spirit roses, peach ranunculus, blush quicksand and fado roses and white majolica roses together with succulents and textured foliages.
