sydney's bouquet for the big day

Like we mentioned in a recent post, Sydney was married last Tuesday. The reception was gorgeous up at The Garden Place (a new venue at This is the Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake) and it was made up with somewhat of a vendor dream-team (i.e. Culinary Crafts, Pink Piggy Design, Carrie's Cakes, Blossom Sweet (obviously), etc...). It was gorgeous!

We loved this event and should be getting photos from the photographer at some point, but for now please indulge us in our sharing a few photos we took of the bride's bouquet.

More to come!

flowers/elements used in bouquet: dusty miller, fiddle fern, queen anne's lace, roses, spray roses, freesia, lisianthus, birch branches, scabiosa pods, silver brunia, ornamental black pepper, and viburnum berries. finished with a charcoal satin wrap and gunmetal pins.

Have a great weekend, all!

a [very belated] photo of the month

Goodness gracious! It may already be the 17th, but we just realized that October's photo of the month never happened! Needless to say we've been busy. Without further ado...

We loved these gorgeous fall bouts from one of our October 2009 weddings. When it comes to boutonnieres, going for "simple" often yields a simply lovely result.

Flowers/elements used: Mini callas, smokebush, lily grass, and rosehips. Finished with either chocolate brown or orange satin ribbon and olive green pins.

sydney's portrait bouquet

The oh-so-cute Sydney is getting herself hitched tomorrow, and we are working on her gorgeous designs as we speak! We wanted to take a quick break, however, to share with you a sneak peek of the portrait bouquet which was used in her recent groomals session with her fiance. Enjoy!

flowers/elements used in bouquet: stock, football mums, spray roses, dusty miller, black pepper berry, and scabiosa pods. finished with a gray satin ribbon and gunmetal pins.

mikaela at la caille: sneak peek

We had a wedding up at the beautiful La Caille a couple of weeks ago. It began with a gorgeous morning ceremony in an absolutely picturesque setting followed by a lovely luncheon on the third story of La Caille's restaurant.

We will be getting more photos from the event's actual photographer (whom we are happy to say is very talented!), but for now, here are a few photos we took ourselves prior to the event. Enjoy!

the bride's bouquet

ranunculus, standard tulips, parrot tulips, lisianthus, freesia, craspedia, football mums, queen anne's lace, feverfew, stock, gold airbrushed branches, and hanging amaranthus. finished with a mustard yellow satin ribbon wrap and draping crystal jewels.

the luncheon centerpieces
gypsophila bunches with finishing touches of hanging amaranthus, gold airbrushed branches, and draping crystal jewels in extra tall cylinder vases.

vintage bud vases... everywhere!
the bride wanted a rather eclectic and free look to her flowers. for the head table, there was a collection of twenty vintage bud vases lining the center of the table filled with various blooms mirroring the bride's bouquet. we also placed bud vases throughout the luncheon on cabaret tables, etc.

one more of the bouquet for good measure:
...because we loved this bouquet.
