Real Wedding: Victoria & Matthew

We had the honor of consulting with DIY enthusiasts, Victoria & Matthew on flowers for their charming New Orleans fête. Through private classes we were able to send our little nesting chicks flying high. Boy oh boy, are we proud!! The flowers turned out fantastic and the pictures from Chellise Michael Photography are magical! Take a look below! 

The Great Bridal Expo…Exposed

We had an amazing night at the Great Bridal Expo last week.  Here are a couple pictures of how it all turned out.

Phew! This weekends wedding is giving me a creative rush. I'm in love. Check out one of the 18 gorgeous branch centerpieces I am working on. It is truly going to be an amazing and stunning event. Just 17 more to go...

Birch marries Velvet

I love working on all of the details that go into making a floral arrangement magical and truly one of a kind. Sometimes all it takes is a throw of luxurious ribbon and a vision. Check out this sneak peak of the many birch and velvet vessels I am working on for this weekend's wedding. 

Butchart Gardens

What an amazing birthday present from my husband Aaron! When visiting family in the Pacific-Northwest, Aaron surprised me with a trip to the beautiful and historic Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. It was gorgeous! I was entranced by all of the vibrant and texturized plant life. I saw so much, including wild Anemone flowers, Dahlia's the size of my face, Roses, burgundy Amaranths, Chocolate Cosmo's, curling branches, a mesmerizing spider web, foliage, foliage, foliage! AND BEES: beautiful and hard at work!

At one point it felt like we stumbled into The Secret Garden of Frances Hodgson Burnett's fantasy! Complete with floating-stone walk ways and a family of deer made entirely of moss.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the day.
