Kelsey and Nick - 07/01/17

Kelsey has been a good friend of mine for almost 10 years and Nick is the perfect person for her to spend her life with. 

She gave me a lot of freedom when it came to her flowers. She knew she wanted white and Tiffany blue and picked out a few flowers that she liked. I don't think there is anyone else I would sprayed hundreds of flowers light blue for. All her flowers were roses, lisianthus and freesia.

Nick wore a boutonniere of a white rose and blue freesia. 

As a florist, I often get recruited for other jobs aside from flowers. Nick had a groomsman break his tux pants, and thanks to my tool kit, I was able to fix them. The process of me on the ground trying to fix pants was heavily photographed by both the photographer, other groomsmen, and both the fathers. They all found it hilarious. I liked this photo because it looks like we were having a moment. 

Their pew ends were white hydrangea with blue bows. The flower girls wore little corsages with long streamers and tossed petals. Sofia (pictured in front) was such a little helper. Because we were using hydrangea out of water on a hot day, I needed to spray them with a hydration and protection spray. Sofia was watching me and wanting to help so she was in charge of spraying all of the pew ends for me. She did a great job!

The altar had 3 arrangements on the altar and a unity candle. 

Kelsey said she knew Nick was "the one" the first night she met him. They met at a wedding and they talked all night. Even though it was late, he said he had to get up early for church the next morning. And with that one sentence, she knew he was a keeper. 

Kelsey and Nick both grew up on a farm so it only made sense to take some pictures out on Nick's farm! Ironically Nick's family farm backs up to farm land that belongs to my mom's cousin. 

The baker added the florals to the cake based on the photo Kelsey loved. But isn't this stunning?!?! It was delicious too!

The outdoor tables all had vases with blue hydrangea in them. The inside tables had centerpieces of a cylinder vase and a mixture of all their flowers (I don't have a picture of those) 

Kelsey's bouquet was wrapped with lace from her mother's wedding gown. I love when brides add a personal touch to their flowers!

Happy Anniversary (plus 1 day due to technological issues)! Thank you for including me in your special day, both as a vendor and as a friend. I wish you a blessed marriage and life together!

Janelle and Zach - 04/16/16

Wedding season officially kicked off this weekend! It was sunny and 80 degrees! What more could you want from a wedding in the middle of April?!?!

I met Janelle through one of our local wedding swap groups. She's actually a fellow small business owner! She and her friend Emily own a linen rental company JEM Coverings, so if you're in need of linens for your wedding, you should definitely check them out! 

Jenelle knew EXACTLY what bouquet she wanted before we even got together for an appointment! There was a little bouquet mishap right before photography, so I rushed back to them and remade the bouquet. The trouble with cascading bouquet is that if you don't get it in just the right spot on the first try, it leaves a big hole and then when you put the stem in again near to that hole, it's not well supported in its new home. I'm so glad that Janelle was understanding and we got it taken care of quickly. 


After seeing her pictures, I think she made the perfect choice! They accented the bridesmaids dresses in just the right way! 


The wedding was at River Music Experience (Redstone Room) and the images were by Trisha K. Photography. It looks like their party was an absolute blast! 


I wish Janelle and Zach all the best on their future together!
