Real Wedding: Cody & Lorna

February 23, 2016

An intimate wedding with family, friends and those dearest to their hearts, Cody and Lorna’s summer wedding was bursting with joy, love, freedom, and color. The florals were comprised of peach and pink roses, eucalyptus, ranunculus, stock, Italian ruscus, spray roses, garden roses and peonies. Everything we did floral wise for C+L’s wedding was my favorite! haha :) But seriously, I loved that Lorna trusted me, had incredible taste, and wanted a luscious, overflowing bridal bouquet, a 40-foot long garland (!!) and florals all throughout the romantic, quaint barn. There wedding was so pretty and many thanks to Jordan for the photos and all the great vendors below!

Modern Copper and Fuchsia Wedding Inspiration

February 11, 2016

A wintry Valentine’s day theme, this rich and romantic color scheme features copper tones with warm berry toned pinks and fuchsia. From Abby Mitchell Events, the planning and designing team, “Our inspiration truly came from the color palette. We wanted it to feel current but traditional, minimalistic but glamorous and just overall very pretty and feminine.”

For the florals, I was very strategic in choosing items that were romantic, elegant and timeless, but with fun and unexpected elements. The floral selection ranged from garden roses, ranunculus, stock, dianthus, berries and lots of rich green foliage. The organic style gave it that fun, relaxed twist.  As seen on The Perfect Palette!

Kudos to the vendor team!

Real Wedding: Travis & Amanda

February 1, 2016

Inspired by blue and white willow-pattern and lots of greenery, Travis & Amanda’s brunch wedding was full of sentimental, charming and fun details (donuts anyone?!?). The florals we selected for their celebration were a mix of white tulips (the bride’s favorite!), ranunculus, blush garden roses, white roses, stock, navy blue privet berries, and lots of foliage. One of my favorite creations that we built for T&A’s wedding was their hanging floral piece which doubled as the focal-point for BOTH the ceremony and reception! It was just lovely and highlighted the couple’s position during both celebrations wonderfully.  Congratulations on your marriage, T&A!

Icy Winter Blues: A Styled Bridal Session

January 28, 2016

From the team, “The inspiration for this styled shoot came from a desire to provide inspiration for winter brides who were in search of a fresh, lighthearted twist on your typical winter wedding.”

For the florals, we strategically picked fluffy white stock, blush-tinted peonies, along with  navy blue privet berries, grey dusty miller and silver brunia berries to accomplish the frosted, blue-toned feel. We wrapped the stems in a silvery, grey ribbon while keeping the style of the bouquet very organic and natural to compliment the romantic and airy feeling of this stunning winter editorial.

Christian + Kate

November 25, 2015

We used the most lovely combination of florals for Christian and Kate’s romantic, elegant and cordial celebration. The florals were creamy whites of lush peonies, fragrant garden roses, whimsical ranunculus and fresh eucalyptus with a gentle touch of lavender throughout. We created an exquiste garland weighing approximately 50lbs for the chapel’s 15-foot rugged wooden cross. That garland and the custom seating chart floral garland were a couple of my favorite pieces. Congratulations on your marriage C+K and thanks for choosing He Loves Me Flowers for your special day! ♥

JB 1:1 Workshop // Celebrating Marriage

November 11, 2015

Dreamy, romantic and devotion are the words that describe this editorial project from Jordan Brittley’s 1:1 Workshop. This editorial’s focus was to celebrate marriage and be inspired to embrace the special person God gave you.  We chose romantic, elegant and organic ingredients including garden roses, giant protea, spray roses, snapdragons, scabiosa, copper beach, amaranthus and more to create a bouquet that would compliment the autumn season beautifully. And how about a fresh floral dog leash!?!  I was delighted to design the florals for this project and be a part of an excellent vendor team (below). As seen on Style Me Pretty.

Nathan + Brittany

November 9, 2015

If anyone loves details, it’s sweet Brittany. She was so attentive to every detail and wanted to make sure her guests felt welcomed, loved, and appreciated at her beautiful vintage, elegant celebration. Everything from fresh floral garlands, foliage capped lanterns, sprinkled rose petals, lush centerpieces and romantic bouquets — Brittany wanted floral adornments throughout the crisp, pristine chapel and reception gathering. And how about that romantic sweetheart table?!?

Thanks to J Design Studios for sharing the lovely photos.
