Millcreek Inn

Yesterday was Kelly and Chad's wedding and reception at the beautiful Millcreek Inn. Extra special thanks to OpieFoto for the photos (except for the last few...those are unfortunately mine!). Her work is beyond gorgeous...hence the plethora of photos.

Quickly -- The bridal bouquet was a full, round bouquet of pink and cream peonies wrapped in champagne satin, the bridesmaids' bouquets were made of cream roses, they chose two designs for the centerpieces, and check out that adorable ring bearer pillow made out of moss... It was an amazing setting and the bride (a professional model) couldn't have been more beautiful. I can't wait to get a photo or two of her!

We'll be back up at Millcreek this week as well for Alisa's wedding. Stay tuned for that one!

Centerpieces and buffet piece from a 50th birthday party... I hope someone throws me a party when I turn 50! How cute are those ice cream cones???

Anyone know a good plumber?

Photo of this weekend's centerpieces... Clustered pink and cream flowers with green accents. Peonies, hydrangea, lisianthus, bouvardia, poppy pods, heather, and hypericum berries.

Disaster strikes on Saturday!

We come home late Saturday night after being out all day to find the toilet tank in our main bathroom had cracked at some point and water had been leaking through the floor into our basement ceiling for who knows how many hours. The ceiling was significantly bowed right over MY desk (Whimsy central!), looking like it was going to burst at any moment. What a mess. The only silver lining to the situation is that we're already in the process of renovating our main kitchen and bathrooms (we hadn't gotten started on the big work in that bathroom yet), so all it did was add more work onto the already never ending list of tasks to be completed. So if you end up at my house for a consultation or to pick up flowers, don't ask to use the restroom -- I'll have to send you to the basement!

Pink and grass -- a great combination!

Okay -- last post for the day. (Just trying to get caught up here!)

Last night was Crista's wedding and reception at Log Haven. What a gorgeous place and what a gorgeous bride! Log Haven is such a fun venue to use because its already got so much ambiance, anything you do just enhances it's charm. A huge treat for me was the drop-in by Chauntelle Janzer from OpieFoto. She happens to be one of our favorite clients (see her featured wedding on our website) who has since entered the realm of professional photography. She came by just to take some shots of our stuff, and I must say, I was pretty amazed -- her work is just stunning! I am so, so excited to see where the field takes her. I'm going to attach a bunch of the photos she took so you can see what I'm talking about. If you're in the market for an insanely creative photographer, check this girl out!

Crista's colors were light and bright pink, and sage. We used a variety of flowers and lots of wheat grass. Her bouquet featured white, pink, and green callas, the bridesmaid and mothers had mixed bouquets, the toss was all gerbs, the tables contained a mixed arrangement in a cube with a floating mini gerb in a smaller cube on either side, with an even smaller cube containing wheat grass with a pink ribbon embellishment on either side of that, finished off with a few white cylinder votives. (I love the creative designs we're able to implement for those long tables!) We had adorable pink pomanders at the ceremony, and take a look at that cake! It was just all so fun and comfortable. They were such gracious clients -- what a pleasure it was to be a part of this wedding!

Lots of color, lots of fun!

Aubrie's reception took place at the Old Meeting House. She chose a really fun color palate -- corals, salmons, oranges, and chocolate brown. We used gerbera daisies, mini Flame callas, asiatic lilies, chocolate cosmos, and 5 varieties of roses for interest. A few photos: Aubrie's bridal bouquet, the bridesmaid's clutches, the mother's clutches, the toss bouquet, and the cake. The centerpieces were so cute and simple -- 6.5" cubes with floating gerbs. The cubes had an adorable layered ribbon treatment of chocolate brown and orange. Gotta love simplicity!

White wedding

Emily and Mike's wedding ceremony took place at the Cathedral of the Madeleine downtown, followed by a reception at The Point. Their colors were white, black, and sage, so she chose all white flowers with black accents. I can't tell you how gorgeous the entire wedding party looked at the Cathedral -- the guys were in black tuxes with the girls in fabulous black cocktail dresses with sage sashes. So chic! A few images for you: Emily's bridal bouquet of white mini callas with a black wrap, one of the bridesmaid's bouquet's -- large white callas with a black wrap, one of the mother's clutches -- Akito roses, white lisianthus, white mini callas, and myrtle, and two of the ornate Cathedral focal pieces -- all white flowers and greenery.
