Autumn Michigan League Wedding


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!


Soft summer mix

Before we're officially into winter, I wanted to share the little shot of a favorite bouquet from this summer.  This soft mix of lavender little silver roses, caramel antike garden roses, burgundy astrantia, seeded eucalyptus and queen anne's lace was such a sweet combination!  I love putting together a mix of colors that's a little unexpected but still soft and elegant!bridal bouquet by red poppy floral design ann arbor  

UMMA wedding

When Colleen and I first discussed her wedding flowers she said they were doing maize and blue, and wanted it to be a sophisticated and elegant version.  They perfectly combined an elegant, classic aesthetic at the University of Michigan Museum of Art with fun, spirited touches of Michigan and Ann Arbor.  And oh my goodness, that dress!! Thank you Colleen and Jeff for letting me be a part of your wedding day! Beautiful, joyful images by the very talented Heather Jowett - thank you, Heather for sharing these with me!!

Colleen's bouquet featured white peonies, garden roses, freesias, pale yellow parrot tulips, and white cymbidium orchids with very pale yellow throats.  Silver dollar eucalyptus and dusty miller added a splash of texture.  Oh, that dress!

Christina and Michael's University of Michigan Summer Wedding

It is such a treat to share images of Christina and Michael's summer wedding, captured by Melanie Reyes Photography.  I can't say enough great things about Melanie's work, and I can highly recommend her insightful, low-key photography classes in Ann Arbor. Christina and Michael were married at St. Mary's Student Parish and followed with a reception at the Gandy Dancer and some beautiful images on the University of Michigan campus, all on a gorgeous Ann Arbor summer day.

University of Michigan Union spring wedding

It was so nice to hear from Anna and Chris who were married last year at the University of Michigan Union.  Chris asked for flowers reminiscent of Anna's bouquet for their first anniversary in May - what a guy!  And they sent me these gorgeous images from their wedding by Lennon Photo.  Thank you Anna and Chris, and congratulations on your first anniversary!
