Oregon Winter Wedding Flower Inspiration

This winter was pretty tough to get through in Portland. We had so much rain and we went months and months with very few, if any sunny days! If there is anything good about an Oregon winter, it's this. How beautiful are these birch trees?

Jenni was dreaming up a winter bouquet for this shoot, and that's exactly what I created! Lots of greenery and twiggy details, with pops of winter white flowers such as lisanthus and spider mums. I even include some dried lunaria too! It was nice to play with some winter flowers and textures that I don't get to use often.

Thank you to Trendy Bride Magazine for featuring our work! It's always a treat to have our designs published. :)

Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding Flowers in Bright, Vibrant Summer Hues

When Olivia and Eric first reached out to me they mentioned that they were getting married at Mt. Hood Organic Farms and that they loved bright, summer colors; can you imagine my excitement? A lot of couples have been sticking with a more neutral palette of whites, greens, and blush lately, which I love, but it's so nice to break out and go bold every now and then too. Plus, I love Mt. Hood Organic Farms!

O & E also contracted me to do some flat styling for their big day. They ended up enlarging a print I designed and used it near their ceremony entrance, which was so flattering and exciting to see. I also designed all of the table numbers the same way. You can view the photos below to see the flat styling I did for them in their initials using fruit and flowers. Such a fun little project!

Since their color palette was "all colors" we ended up going all over the spectrum. Olivia wanted a nice mix of lighter shades, and brighter ones too, to contrast. Here bridesmaids wore soft, pastel shades, so we kept their bouquets soft. Meanwhile, Olivia's bouquet was a mix of pastel and pops of deep and bright colors. Some of the flowers used were dahlias, clematis, zinnias, garden roses, poppies and more!

Congrats again to Olivia and Eric! :)

Milwaukee Yacht Club Wedding Featuring White, Cream and Peach Flowers

Last summer I had the opportunity to do the personal flowers for a beautiful wedding in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the Milwaukee Yacht Club. It was a beautiful day with A & M's ceremony outside on the lawn and their reception overlooking Lake Michigan. Such a perfect early summer wedding!

When I think of early summer flowers, I don't often think of the juicy bright flowers that most people think of, I honestly think of whites, creams, peaches, etc. Just like the summery bouquet you see below! I used clematis, ranunculus, dahlias and my favorite - honeysuckle vine! I love how this one turned out.

Here is a sneak peek of the bridal bouquet from A & M's Milwaukee Yacht Club wedding. :)

Simple and Natural Wedding Flowers in White and Green

I really enjoy collaborating with other creatives for editorial photo shoots. My favorite shoots take place outside, deep in the heart of nature, because I believe my florals look best among the lush green backdrop. My style of floral design is very earthy and organic, which seems to be complimented best with the great outdoors as its backdrop. :)

This shoot took place in a forest preserve, just outside of Chicago. We were inspired by all of the beautiful greenery and flowers that were popping up that time of year (Spring!). Simple, clean and understated florals made this shoot very unique. Sometimes a smaller bouquet, rather than a large, over sized one, makes all the difference. Peonies, dusty miller, scabiosa, garden roses and more were used in these designs.

I also created a rose and succulent bridal hairpiece, which still remains one of my favorite hair pieces of all time. I love how it curves against our models head for a natural look. It was a bit larger than most brides want, but you'd be surprised on the size of hairpieces. This one was fairly large, but really doesn't overpower our model's head at all. It was a true perfect fit for the look we were trying to achieve.
