kaylee + landon, the cute "urban garden" couple

I first met Kaylee last year before she even got engaged when she reached out to me and gushed about her love of both flowers and of our work.  So naturally, I liked her right from the get-go.  A couple of months later she was engaged and meeting with me in a consultation appointment (along with the hubs-to-be).  When I learned that their event concept was based on an "Urban Garden" vibe, I was so excited.  I love that aesthetic!  I am very excited about their designs coming up very soon. 

Kaylee took her bridal portraits last week and the photos from that will wow you to be sure.  Imagine the most giant headwreath you've ever seen on the Blossom Sweet Blog (and that's saying something), and you'll have an idea of the kind of beauty you're in for.  Keep an eye out!

And now, please enjoy the love story of Kaylee + Landon.

How did you meet? 
My little sister set us up on a blind date!

What did you do for your first date? 
We went to Wendy's and talked for an hour. We didn't hit it off right at first. We grew on each other. 

Who said "I love you" first?  
Landon did. He's the sweetest. 

What is the most unique thing about your relationship? 
The most unique thing about our relationship is that we are nothing alike. All of our interests are completely different. He's a sneakerhead from Portland who loves football, hip hop, and Nike. I'm a lighthearted girly-girl from Utah who lives in dresses and loves floral and Taylor Swift. I think that is why it took us a little while to click. We are almost the complete opposite. We complement each other well, though.

What are your favorite qualities about each other?  
she says: He is so sweet and thoughtful. He's funny and really good with people. He is determined and a dreamer. I think that is one of the reasons that I knew I had to marry him. I finally found someone whose dreams were as big as mine. I also love how much he makes me laugh every day!

he says:  I think the thing I admire most about her is how kind she is. Kaylee is nice to me, and while that may seem simple, it means more to me than anything.  Her kindness enables her to be a true friend, a compassionate listener, and a perfect companion.  I love how she's constantly learning more about her own style and how she likes to express it.  She works so hard and stays cute the whole time.  She's top notch and I love her for that.

How did he propose?  
I flew to Portland to meet his family this past December, and he took me to a candlelit dinner at the Portland City Grill. Our table overlooked the whole city. It was breathtaking. He pulled me to the edge of the booth and got down on one knee and proposed. He got all choked up telling me how much he loved me. It was a really sweet and simple moment. 

Where will you go on your honeymoon? 
Waikiki, Hawaii! We are beyond excited!

Tell us a little about your event concept. 
For our wedding we wanted to incorporate both of our styles, so we decided on the theme of an "Urban Garden." We want it to be a fun event with pizza and hip hop in a brick and hardwood venue with lots of lights, feminine colors, flowers and greenery (I've been obsessed with Blossom Sweet's work for awhile now, so obviously I am so excited to have them be a part of this).  We want it to be casual, but very pretty. We're so excited to see what they put together for us!

sneak peeks

We've had a couple of pretty weddings so far this month and today we're starting on yet another.  It's sure-to-be-stunning, but before we dive in to this week's designs we thought we'd share a few little sneak peeks of our first two events of the month.  Professional photos will be posted at some point, but for now please enjoy our amateur snapshots.

wedding #1:

The bouquet


The ga-ga-gorgeous centerpieces



wedding #2:

I just wanted to post the cake for now because, well, it was absolutely incredible.  The definitive focal piece of the event to be sure.


More to come!

couple spotlight: megan + allen

Our spring season came in like a lion this year!  We had our first spring 2014 event last weekend, and it was a wonderful wedding with gorgeous flowers everywhere.  Pretty, pretty, pretty!  We will be sharing a sneak peek of that wedding soon! 

We also had another one of our March client's bridal portraits last weekend.  Her Sundance wedding is coming up at the end of the month and it's going to be a rustic stunner.  Can't wait!  Today we are sharing her love story in the form of a "couple spotlight," complete with la-la-lovely images from her engagements and "groomals" session.   

Without further ado, enjoy getting to know Megan and Allen, and be sure watch for tons of pretty pictures from their wedding sometime in the future!

How did you meet?  
We met at church a year and a half ago and were asked to lead a service committee together so we became best friends.   


What did you do for your first date?  
We had spent a lot of time together for months as friends (who always secretly had a crush on each other), but our first official date was to Spicy Thai (Thai is our favorite!) and then we walked around the Riverwoods and watched Pride and Prejudice.   


Who said "I love you" first?  
Well really, Allen told his sister first.  I glanced down at his phone as he was texting his sister about me one time and his text said, "I'm so in love!"  I started blushing and said, "You are??" After that we both openly said we loved each other all the time.      


What is the most unique thing about your relationship?   
From the first time we spoke, we felt a connection. The next time we really talked, sparks flew.  It really feels like we already knew each other when we first met. Throughout our relationship, it's felt like we've been remembering who each other is instead of getting to know each other.   


What are your favorite qualities about each other?  
She says:  Allen is the most selfless and giving person I know.  He is so patient and kind and is always a gentleman.  He also is always working to improve himself.  He is the most thoughtful person I know as well.  I can't count how many times he's given me the sweetest and most well thought out gifts.  He is constantly telling me how he feels about me and he is so uplifting and inspiring. 

He says:  Megan is compassionate. She always cares for others and makes it a point to serve them; she loves others. She is free-spirited. I've never had more fun with anyone in my life! She is genuine and loyal. I felt like as soon as I met her I was meeting the real Megan. She lives in a way that shows her true nature and she's fiercely loyal.  


How did he propose?  
On New Year's Eve, we went to his parents' house and took a walk out in a park that's special to us.  All of a sudden candles started lighting up a path covered with roses.  The path led underneath a tree where he told me how he feels about me and how he wants to be with me forever.  Then he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. 


Where will you go on your honeymoon? 
We're going on a cruise to the Bahamas! 


Tell us a bit about your event concept.  
We both love nature- especially trees and the mountains.  So we wanted to go with a rustic/woodsy feel for our reception.

new year's eve elopement magazine feature

As spring knocks on the door and winter is on it's way out, we wanted to share a New Year's Eve elopement feature before the chilly season says goodbye.  We were excited to see our client Kari's wedding featured in the latest issue of Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom Magazine.  The first image below shows the cover of the issue.


You may have also seen Kari's wedding featured on Martha Stewart Weddings as well as Carats & Cake.  Her big day was an intimate and cozy occasion (our first elopement to design for, in fact!), and her florals were the perfect little compliment to the occasion.  Pick up a copy of the magazine to read more about her wedding, and enjoy some images here today on the blog!

a gorgeous centerpiece from our open house display

We had a fun time at The Vista's Open House last weekend.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by.  We were happy to be invited by The Vista to participate in the Open House as one of their recommended vendors, and our display turned out really cute.  Enjoy a few amateur photos of our entire booth as well as some close-ups of the gorgeous centerpiece we created for it.


Flowers used in designs:
Ranunculus, anenomes, garden roses, stock, tulips, veronica, kangaroo paws, heather, silver dollar eucalyptus, variegated pitt, hydrangea, and lisianthus.  We also used a pretty gray foliage, but the name is currently slipping a tired florist's mind.  :)

new minimum order + february's photo of the month

Happy February!  As we announced last month, as of of February 1st our minimum order was increasing.  Please note that our minimum order is now $1,200.  Clients who booked with us prior to February 1st will be subject to the previous minimum requirement.

Also, a new month means a new photo of the month!  As this is the month-of-love, we thought we'd honor the color pink by featuring this pretty pic of a pink-themed wreath we created for one of our past weddings.  If you follow our work you've probably heard us say--many times over--that creating fresh wreaths is one of our VERY favorite things to do for our clients.  They are just so pretty and make a huge impact at an event!  We love that this particular wreath is fresh, green and organic with just the perfect little pop of pink.  Mmmmm, so good. 


elements used in wreath:
geraldine roses, pink majolika spray roses, hanging amaranthus, calcynia, lemon leaf, gunni eucalyptus, and silver brunia.  finished with draping satin ribbon, lace, and pearl strands.
