photo of the month + a couple spotlight

We'll start out today's post with a (very belated) photo of the month.  This bouquet was one of our favorites from a couple years back and would be a gorgeous accessory for a spring bride (...or summer... or fall for that matter)!  We adore the mixture of bold and soft tones, as well as the fluffy textures and pops of gray.  When we created this design we called it our "honeycomb bouquet" because for some reason the waxflower reminded us of just that.  Cute!

flowers used in bouquet:  stock (two varieties), roses, silver brunia, pepper berry, pittosporum, and waxflower.  Finished with gray satin ribbon.
Also, we have another wedding coming up this weekend and today you get to enjoy the backstory of the cute bride & groom.   We posted a photo of the bride's portrait bouquet a couple of weeks ago, it was the beautiful orange-toned piece with draping andromeda.  So lovely.  And now, before you read their story of l'amour, go ahead and take a guess as to how long they dated until they bought a ring.  Will you be surprised?  Well read on and let's see, shall we?  :)

What did you do for your first date?
Well, our first date was to Tepanyaki Grill and Temple Square.  Mind you, he's from Arizona and only had lived up here for a week, so the cold was a huge change and a bit interesting for him considering he didn't even own a winter coat! 

What is your funniest memory as a couple?
Our funniest memory... that's tough.  Tyler and I tend to be children most of the time--we keep each other laughing and laughing.  Something unique about us though, we just happened to buy a ring two weeks after dating. When you know, you know!

Who said I love you first?
I have to admit, I hinted the three words all day but never actually came out and said it.  I kept saying, "I need to tell you something... but i think I'll wait."  Finally that night he came out and said "I love you."  He beat me to it!

What are your favorite qualities about each other?
She says:  My favorite quality about Tyler would have to be his childish fun side.  There's a never a moment where he's not throwing in a joke--he rarely takes anything seriously.  He's such a motivated person when it comes to anything!  He keeps me on my feet and I love it.  He will be such a successful person someday; I've never met a boy who's so organized and on top of things.  I could go on and on about how amazing he is and the example he is to me in my life. 

He says:  She's the most caring person I have ever met.  I love her sense of humor and how we're always laughing.  She makes me want to be a better person, and I can't wait for our future together!

Tell us a little bit about your event concept.  
Our reception will be held at Gardner Village, which is STUNNING to begin with.  I'm going for more of an anthropology vibe--I've bought nearly everything there in my colors!  I'm hoping that when you walk in guests will instantly know what my colors are, especially with the beautiful flowers!

How did he propose?
Here's the story of our proposal.  We had plans to go to dinner on a Saturday night, and somehow we ended up at my parent's house.  He got me to go downstairs to my room where "Will You Marry Me" was spelled out in roses on my bed.  There were candles lit everywhere and a handsome boy on his knee.  While on his knee, my cute brother jumped out of my closet to take pictures (I told him I wanted a photographer in hiding).  It was simple and sweet.
