going out with a bang: an AMAZING year

Simply put, 2012 was an amazing year here at Blossom Sweet.  We had more events in 2012 than in any year previous, and the events we did have were beyond-words-beautiful.  Wow, we often catch ourselves speechless looking back over the past year and what it has brought to our studio.

And we are closing out this wonderful year with a BANG!  We first have large event at a lovely ski resort this weekend, and to top that off we have a Park City destination elopement on New Year's Eve followed by a mountain-top ceremony for yet another bride on New Year's Day.  What a GREAT end to a great year, and promising start to what is sure to be another year of showstopping weddings.  We can think of no better way to end one year and begin another!

So as we say goodbye to 2012 and hello to 2013, we want to thank you all for your continuous support of Blossom Sweet, our art, and our passion.  We also want to announce that we have some very exciting things going on in January so you will want to check the blog on a very consistent basis after the New Year!  Until then...

Happy New Year!

special order: christmas statement piece

While we don't typically take on "everyday" design requests, we do occasionally create large-scale custom orders.  Each December for the past several years we've created a holiday piece for the birthday of a client's wife.  We are given creative reign with these designs which makes creating them such a joy (not to mention that the recipient is the sweetest soul)!  This year the husband wanted us to do something using his kitchen light as a base.  So, we got our creative juices flowing and below is a photo of what we came up with.

**disclaimer, this is a phone pic so please excuse the poor quality


We loved, loved, loved designing this piece which hangs above the kitchen table.  Not gonna lie, it was pretty fun to use a lot more glitter than we do in our typical events... which amount (with a few exceptions) is usually close to zero.  :)

winter wedding wreaths

We had two weddings this past weekend, one of which had these two winter wreaths hanging at the entryway.  So gorgeous!  We would love if every bride chose to include fresh wreaths - they really make a statement and add so much to the atmosphere of an event.  Just wanted to share a sneak peek.


Elements used in wreath:  cedar, blueberry cedar, pine, holly, spray roses, garden roses, aster, hypericum berries, pepperberry, and winterberry.

nichole + cole

We love getting the emails from our clients when they share their love stories for a blog spotlight!  It is so fun to read all about the back-story behind our events.  In our work it's exciting that everything we book comes from a place of l'amoure.  

We enjoyed reading Nichole + Cole's responsesThey are such a cute couple and their love for each other is apparent.  We are so excited for their beautiful winter event which takes place this weekend.  Enjoy their spotlight!

How did you meet?
After I returned from my mission, I was invited to speak in several wards in our stake.  I spoke in Cole's home ward.  After the meeting, Cole's mother approached me and said, "I never do this, but I would like you to go out with my son."  I gave her my phone number and he called and asked me out.

What did you do for your first date?
For our first date, we went on a short hike to a waterfall.

What are your favorite qualities about each other?
She says:  Cole is kind.  He is constantly serving others, including me.  He asks me every day, "What can I do for you today?"  He is very patient with me.  He is humble and teachable.  He is intelligent and hard-working.  If Cole sees that there is work to be done, he jumps in to do it without being asked. 

He says:  Nichole is beautiful, on the inside and out.  She is personable, giving, intelligent, and hard-working.  She is trendy and lovely.

Tell us a little bit about your event design concept.
I never imagined having a winter wedding.  I always planned to have a spring wedding with pastel colors.  When I realized that we would wed in the winter, I decided that I wanted to nod to the season, but still incorporate the pastel colors that I love.  As I met with Melissa of Blossom Sweet and discussed my vision, we decided to take a modern vintage approach.  We decided to use clean lines and elegant flowers, with a whimsical palette of ivory, bright winter reds, soft pink, and mint.  

Who said "I love you" first?
I wanted to tell Cole that I loved him, but I was a bit frightened to say it first.  One evening, I was telling him about something mundane.  He said, "I love y-it.  I love it.  I love that you do that."  I knew he was ready to say those three special words.  The next night, I put on my favorite outfit and a charming smile.  He said, "I love you."  I was speechless when he said it, even though I was hoping for it and expecting it.  I had no idea how it would make me feel.  The love that I felt for him grew stronger.

How did he propose?
Cole and I had planned to go to his family reunion together.  I was looking forward to the trip, especially after a long stressful week.  When he came to pick me up, I had my bags packed and ready to go.  He came in and asked, "Do you have everything you need for our trip."  I assured him that I did.  He said, "Are you positive, I don't want you to forget anything."  I said, "Yes, I have everything."  He was not picking up my bags, so I grabbed my bags and headed out the door.  I quickly realized that he was not following me.  I turned back around and went inside.  I found him on one knee with the ring box open.  He said, "You are forgetting this."  He asked me to marry him.  I was speechless (which never happens to me).  It took me a long time to respond, but I finally whispered "yes."

december's photo of the month

Happy December and Happy Holidays to all!  As this is the last month of the year, it is naturally a time of reflection, and we've been reflecting as of late upon all of our amazing clients and events this year!  So for this month's "photo of the month," we decided to feature one of our favorite portrait bouquets, along with a testimonial/thank you email we received from this particular bride shortly following her wedding, in which she called Blossom Sweet her "dream-come-true-er."  She actually sent TWO separate thank you emails, so we'll share the second one with you once we post the wedding (can't wait for you to see it!).  Enjoy.


"I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you for making my wedding dreams complete!  I can't even express to you how perfectly you carried out my vision and even went beyond to make my wedding even more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined or planned.  I recently got a picture of me and my bouquet that a family friend had snapped on their cell phone and was just taken aback at how stunning those flowers were.  I knew they were beautiful on the wedding day, I wished I could have had a year to enjoy them in their full beauty! That picture was just a confirmation of how stunning they were, I can't wait to get all of my pictures back from the photographer!

You are truly an artist and, for me, a dream-come-true-er. What a fun job to be able to be surrounded by such beauty AND make so many brides happy.  Congrats on finding something in your life that is so completing!  That is rare.  Best of luck in everything!  

Thank you, thank you again."

thankful

It seems that this time of year brings out the grateful side of us all.  Well, today we'll jump on board and add our gratitude to the mix.  We really are so thankful for the work we do in creating beauty on the "most special day" in the lives of so many.  The clients we work with are stellar -- we couldn't ask for better. 

And speaking of being grateful for beautiful clients and events, today we are sharing a photo of one of our summer brides and her SMASHING bouquet.  My oh my, we loved it.  And along side the bride is one of her bridesmaids, Melissa Nickle, the Owner of Blossom Sweet herself!  It was such a pleasure to be a part of this wedding in both a florist and bridesmaid capacity.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.  We hope you have a wonderful, yummy, and safe holiday.


Flowers used in bouquet: 
roses, lisianthus, garden roses, spray roses, freesia, football mums, allium, calla lilies, israeli ruscus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and pittosporum.

We will be out of the office until Monday, November 19th.  All calls and emails will be returned at that time.  Thank you for your patience!

And now onto pretty things.  Today we have a lovely sneak peek for you from one of our September weddings.  The bouquet was to die for (if we do say so ourselves).  We loved it.  There's something about fall elements that speaks to our floral souls!  More to come from this darling backyard wedding.

photo of the month + more!

We're back!  After a brief hiatus from the shop and the blog (due to an out of town event), it's time for a belated photo of the month.

Today we're featuring Makenzie's bridal portrait session as captured by Rebekah Westover.  Wow.  Gorgeous bride, gorgeous bouquet, gorgeous setting, gorgeous photos.  All around gorgeousness!  The first image is our photo of the month, and the rest feature the entire session.  Enjoy.



Ah, the final image has to be one of the most beautiful bridal portraits we've ever seen.  What a beautiful area we live in -- this is just up American Fork Canyon in Utah.  This is why brides come here for their Utah Destination Weddings (for which we love designing!).  Sigh.  Can you blame them?



flowers used in bouquet: football mums, hanging amaranthus, ming fern, cattail, stock, rosehips, and brunia.

spooky centerpiece

While today's post has nothing to do with our typical subject of weddings, it does have to do with flowers.  And... with Halloween!  We love the spooky holiday, and wanted to share a simple centerpiece concept with you if you'd like to try your hand at it for tomorrow.  Enjoy and have a fun & safe holiday!




The details:

Flowers used:  roses, spray roses, bronze football mums, seeded eucalyptus, agonis, pepper berry, stock, button mums, cushion mums, snapdragons, and birch branches.

Other elements:  tin can (tutorial below), pull-apart spider webbing, glitter spiders ($1 at Walmart), and fake cockroaches (pack of 12 just $2 at Walmart)



Tin-can tutorial (to make your tin-can container look spooky-licious):
  • First, simply use a spray bottle to spritz the can with water.
  • Next, take some black spray paint and spray over the water. 
  • Finally, take a paper towel and lightly dab the can.  
  • Let dry.

a jim & a gem

We are so excited for Tiffany's wedding which is coming up this week.  Seriously, is she not one of the prettiest girls you ever did see?  She (along with her cute mom) is an absolute gem.  Enjoy the spotlight below featuring her love story!

photo courtesy of alixann loosle photography

How did you meet?
We met on the 4th of July through mutual friends. We hit it off pretty quickly as he is really outgoing and easy to talk to. On our first date he was so excited to surprise me with a date he'd been planning. He picked me up and started driving towards the mountains, and he wouldn't tell me where he was taking me. He brought me to a little lake and pulled out a raft, pumped it up, grabbed a whole bunch of blankets and we headed to the lake. We had a really good night cuddling in the raft, looking at the stars, and just talking and getting to know each other.  Cops came and kicked us out, which made it more of an adventure. I thought he was so cute and thoughtful. Best date I've ever been on.

What is the most unique thing about your relationship?
Something unique about us is that our parents were in the same ward (church congregation) twenty-something years ago.  When my parents were newlyweds they lived in my grandparents' basement and his parents lived down the street.  Who knew Jim and I would meet so many years later!

Also, Jim has 16 nieces and nephews, and I have none. Two of his nephews are older than me and one of his nieces is my age. We think it's pretty unique that I'll go from 0 to 16 nieces and nephews in one day.

What is your favorite thing to do together?
We love going rafting (like we did on our first date), camping, picnics, and anything outdoors really. 

What are your favorite qualities about each other?
 About him:  Jim is really talented at everything he does. He is so thoughtful and caring, and such a likeable person. I love how genuine he is -- I was comfortable and myself with him from day one. One of my favorite things about Jim is he always makes me laugh until I cry.  He's always joking and is really witty. If he thinks you're funny he'll put his hand on his chest and his laugh will go a little higher.  I think it's cute!  He is so good with kids and is very family oriented, which makes me excited for us to be a family. I just love everything about him!

About her:  Tiffany is one of the most thoughtful and caring people I have ever met. The first time we hung out she brought me an elaborate cupcake that she had made because she knew I loved them. She is constantly thinking of others and doing special things for them! I love how ambitious she is and that her ambitious desires are always for the benefit of others instead of recognition for herself. She is going to school to get a degree so that she can help others feel better about themselves! That's just how awesome she is!  She is also extremely funny and easy going. She is always making me laugh, is fun to be around, and is up for any kind of adventure at anytime... and I love that about her!

Tell us a bit about your event concept.
I love anything floral, lace, and gold. I'm translating that into a vintage, feminine, and classic wedding.  My colors are soft jade and coral with gold and neutral accents. I love simple elegance, so my wedding wont be over the top.

Who said "I love you" first?
Jim said "I love you" first. I was teasing him one night saying, "you must be real 'in like' with me," and he told me that night he was "real in love" with me. He caught me off guard; I told him he was really sweet and didn't say it back for a couple days.

How did he propose? 
He proposed on the Fourth of July, just a year after we met. Jim thinks a lot of girls have too high of expectations, so for our first Valentines Day he was dreading it because he felt like I would be like most girls and would want the date to be over the top (he had a bad past experience). I started teasing him saying "Yeah, it would be nice to have rose petals, go to the nicest restaurant and get a dozen flowers, go to a tall mountain with the prettiest view, and there better be a helicopter involved!" He knew I was totally joking and we just had a nice dinner at Chili's where we ended up having the best time. We considered the 4th of July our one year anniversary mark. We gave each other a couple presents, he got me a dozen roses and we went to a nice dinner. After dinner he brought me up the mountain with the prettiest view and told me he had one more present. For some reason I was oblivious and thought maybe he was embarrassed to give me this present earlier in the day. I opened up the present and it was a toy helicopter. I again was so confuse... when did I ever want a toy helicopter?  He told me that he knew I would want the prettiest view and a helicopter would need to be involved, then he pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him. He had his friend video taping and taking pictures, so we get to replay my confused face and me crying after. He is the best listener and remembers everything I say.  On the Fourth of July there were fireworks when we met, and once again when he proposed.

a backyard wedding feature

Hello Blossom Sweet friends and thanks for stopping by.  Yesterday a few images of our work were seen on Utah Bride Blog in a post showcasing the lovely backyard wedding of one of our August brides.  Enjoy!

photo courtesy of jacque lynn photography

PS. It was an adorable occasion and when we arrived to set up, we noticed that the couple's answers from their Blossom Sweet spotlight were printed out and displayed at each cocktail table so that guests could get to know the couple's love story.  It gave us all sorts of warm fuzzies to see that!

the bride with two portrait sessions

We have a wedding coming up in November that is sure to be a showstopper.  The bride has chosen to have two separate bridal portrait sessions pre-event, which is a first for us.  That being said, that means we get to create three bouquets for her when all is said and done, all cohesive to her event design yet all different one from the other.  So, needless to say we wholeheartedly approve of this plan!

Below are a few gorgeous images taken from her first bridal portrait session.  Enjoy!

Flowers used in bouquet:  
Roses, football mums, tree kale, veronica, rosehips, and knifeblade acacia.  
Finished with a champagne satin wrap and lace overlay.

a dose of cuteness for your friday

We are about to embark on another two-wedding weekend here at Blossom Sweet (which is to be followed up by yet another one next week!).  Ah, we love fall weddings.  And to all of our fellow wedding-obsessed souls, today we are sharing a link with you which showcases the emotion of various grooms in their "first look" photos.  We love the idea of having a private "first look" moment.  Do you?



Visit THIS LINK to view over twenty similarly sweet images.  
Have a great weekend!

an original palette: a new photo of the month

Happy October!  Our new photo of the month features an arrangement we created last fall for a retro co-ed inspired shoot (which shoot was featured on Green Wedding Shoes!).  We chose this particular image because of a few of the elements which are only available this time of year.  For example, check out those cool navy blue tones coming from the black pepper berry as well as viburnum berry.  There are so many rad (yes, rad) items you can get during this stunning season, and we say go for it.

So if you are having a fall wedding, why not mix it up with a color palette that isn't typical?  Be the exception to the cookie-cutter rule by utilizing the unexpected elements fall offers to you.

evelyn + marcelo

A wedding is coming up very soon 
Of a gorgeous bride 
And a handsome groom.  


So excited for Evelyn & Marcelo's wedding this weekend.  It is going to be truly stunning!  Evelyn herself is a talented photographer in the industry (Evelyn Eslava Photography), so we were flattered to be her florist of choice.  She's a detail-oriented soul and we cannot wait to see her plans and our designs come together.

photos courtesy of alixann loosle photography

 
How did you meet?
We met long ago, the summer before my last year of high school at a friend's house after a day at Lagoon.  He actually wanted to meet me when he saw a picture of me, so this was his opportunity. 

What is the most unique thing about your relationship?
We think the most unique thing about our relationship is that even though we don't always think the same or like the same stuff (such as religion, food, music etc.), we respect each others opinions and love each other for who we truly are.  We are accepting of each other, and we somehow meet in the middle and like lots of stuff together.

Also, we have been dating for seven years.  He's from Salt Lake and I am from Orem, so long drives will be remembered from our dating years.  :) 

What is your favorite thing to do for fun as a couple? 
We just like doing whatever together, it can be anything fancy or just simple.  We like to watch movies at home or go eat in the middle of the night and talk to each other about everything. 

What are your favorite qualities about each other? 
She says:  My favorite qualities about him would be that he is such a smart guy, a super sweet guy, and he's just nice to everyone.  Plus, he knows how to cook.  ;)
 
He says:  My favorite qualities about Evelyn would be that she's a nice, talented, and smart girl.  But also, my favortite thing would be her heart -- she has a pure and sweet heart. 
Tell us a little bit about your event design concept.
We wanted something simple, but at the same time elegant (yet not too over the top).  A little bit of a vintage and romantic feeling... but still whimsical!

How did he propose? 
We went out to dinner at Macaroni Grill at Riverwoods Mall and then we drove up Provo Canyon.  When we got to the top we got outside of the car to see the lights from the city, and he looked at me and showed me a little box.  Then he opened it and I saw the ring and he simply asked me, "Would you marry me?"  I had a feeling this was happening... and I said... "Yes!"

lovestruck & moonstruck: holly + greg

We are over-the-moon excited for Holly's wedding tomorrow, the flowers are going to be insanely fantastic.  And speaking of moons, check out this couple's cute love story which contains romantic tales of "Full Moon Adventures".

photo courtesy of giovanna lou

How did you meet?
We actually met sometime in Jr. High.  We know we had at least one class together, 9th grade Spanish class.  Throughout Jr. High and High School we never really talked or hung out much but Greg was friends with my twin brother so that always kept us in reach of each other.  Once high school ended we started hanging out more and after Greg’s 2 year mission he called me for our first date.  Once we finally went on our first date (actually, from the night of our first kiss the night before) we were inseparable and have seen each other nearly everyday since.


What is the most unique thing about your relationship?
She says: One of the most unique things about our relationship (besides the fact that we’ve known each other since we were 12) is that I have a note from that 9th grade Spanish class where a friend had asked me for my top 5 crushes and I had Greg as my number one crush. I found that note after high school and told him about it. I like to think that my heart was in love with him way before my head knew about it. 

He says:  Another unique thing about our relationship is our full moon adventures. Which you’ll hear a little bit more about further below...


When did you first know you were in love?
She says: On my birthday about a month after we’d started dating.  
  
He says:  Within the first week of dating I knew that I loved Holly and wanted to marry her. 


Tell us a little bit about your event concept and what you are most excited about regarding your wedding.
A romantic, slightly rustic garden party wedding in a beautiful backyard. Our colors are essentially neutrals (navy, cream and red-brown) accented by floral design.  I’m most excited to see it all come together especially to see the flowers which will primarily be providing most of the color. 


What is your favorite thing to do for fun as a couple?
We have both “low key” and “high key” nights.  On low key nights we love just cuddling up and watching one of our favorite movies.  High key nights usually contain some sort of outdoor adventure like climbing on top of pavilions or hiking mountains together. We both love being in the outdoors and being active. 


What are your favorite qualities about each other?
She says: Greg is so gentle and loving.  He always puts me first and is watching out for me.  I love that he’s super comfortable in the outdoors and will go on big adventures with me.  I also love his blonde hair and blue eyes, he’s a major cutie. 

He says: I love that Holly is so kind, smart, pretty, thoughtful, sincere. I love her cute smile and long eyelashes. She is my best friend and I’m so excited to get to have her in my life for forever!


How did he propose?

When we first started dating we decided we were going to celebrate the full moon every month with something we call “full moon adventures.”  These have consisted of everything from night snowshoeing on the golf course to swinging under the moon light to watching the moon rise while eating cafe rio in the car.  On the night of June’s full moon we went on one of our favorite drives, up East Canyon to where East meets Emigration canyon.  We found a hill top, grabbed a blanket and started hiking up the hill.  We talked about our relationship, Greg said some really cute things about how unique our relationship is and especially how our full moon adventures kind of illustrate our relationship well... we love the outdoors, we go on adventures, etc.  When we got to the top of the hill he set out the blanket and I had turned away for a bit.  When I turned around he was on one knee.  He told me how much he loved me and that with every full moon our relationship had gotten so much better and each month he found that he loved me more and more and that he figured that if these adventures were any indication that our future together would continue to be amazing and decided that that night would be a good time to ask me if I would marry him.  And I said Yes!! Definitely the best Full Moon Adventure yet. 


May you have many more "full moon adventures" for years to come.
