Jenni @ Red Pine Lodge

It was a cold, cold day up in Park City for Jenni's wedding at The Canyon's Red Pine Lodge.

The bride was stunning (actually the whole bridal party was -- movie star-gorgeous!) and everyone seemed so happy. I love weddings where there's nothing but joy to go around.

Her colors were navy, hot pink, silver, and winter white. In the photos you'll see how things looked when we left them at 5:00 PM. After the sun went down, though, it went from bright and cheery to nightclub-chic! Each vase and vessel contained submersible lights so that once it got dark, the arrangements glowed from within. It took relatively simple arrangements to a completely different level. I'm so looking forward to seeing the nighttime transformation captured by the couple's amazing photographers from Sweet Memory Garden. I'll be sure to post them when I get them!

Another thanks to Michelle for bringing along her camera during this setup!

Snowballs in February

Since we've haven't seen too many snowballs this winter in Utah...

Lynlee's reception was held in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building's Empire Room. It doesn't matter how many times I've designed for this room -- its so insanely elegant, I just can't get enough of it. Granted, that ornate look isn't for everyone, but its one that's surely never going out of style...

This event's floral designs couldn't have been more simple, but when you piece together all the elements that went into this decor, its stunning.

The centerpieces were pomanders made out of white carnations, placed atop assorted silver glass candlesticks. (Don't they look like snowballs?) The bridal bouquet featured Akito and Polar Star tea roses, white garden roses, and white spray roses. No greenery. None. Nada. The accent color was obviously gray in this wedding. White and gray...thinking this is my new favorite combo for sure.

Thanks to Michelle for bringing along her camera on this setup so I actually have something to post for once!

Purple Sympathy

This sympathy special order was gorgeous. The client was very specific -- she did not want it to look like a traditional sympathy arrangement. No problem! I don't like that stuff either!

With a purple and white color scheme, we used hydrangea, roses, mini calla lilies, tulips, berzellia, variegated pitt and lily grass, and seeded eucalyptus. The galvanized tin vessel really made the whole thing glow.

I could have seriously kept this one...lovely!

Pink Sympathy

I wanted to share some photos from a sympathy order we did a few months ago. The color scheme was pale pink and pale yellow. The main floral request was for the arrangements to incorporate pink roses. We provided a casket spray, a tribute spray from the grown children, and a small mixed vase arrangement to be placed on either side of the pulpit during the service. For the tribute spray, there were four main floral varieties used -- one for each grown child. I thought the entire package turned out very nice...very feminine...
