I can’t believe this gorgeous wedding never was blogged about! I loved the colors because they were so vibrant and fun. They were fall with a twist!  Orange, burgundy, lime green and purple. They just popped! Andrea came in with the picture of a tall centerpiece she and her mom loved and we worked really hard to make them perfect for her. The cascade bridal bouquet was the other WOW!

We’re so excited to see the professional photos from JP Photography because as you can see from the few included here, hers are so much better than ours! Plus, don’t you think the couple looks like they should be models?!

Shannon and Josh had the most beautiful fall day for their wedding! The fall colors that Shannon picked were absolutely perfect!  Please check out the yellow, red and orange bouquets that include sunflowers, gerbera daisies and roses.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to get this posted, because Blue Lux Photography had pictures edited so fast! I love that about them!  Aren’t they beautiful?

My favorite memory of this wedding was when Shannon and her bridesmaids were outside taking photos before the ceremony and we had to sneak her back into the church when guests were already in the church. So fun!

As a full service florist, we pass out bouquets, explain how to hold them, pin on corsages and boutonnieres, set up any ceremony flowers and anything else we may be needed for. This includes pointing people in the right direction to the bathrooms and opening doors to sneak the bride back in since I was still there waiting for a Grandparent. I love my job!

I met Sarah’s mom through the Downtown Sylvania Association, as the owner of New-Trition, and we moved into her building when we opened our second location a few years ago. I was so honored when her daughter chose Beautiful Blooms by Jen to design her wedding flowers!

What was so cool about Sarah is that she chose to turn her mom’s wedding dress into her wedding dress. What a cool idea! Please see the finished look below.

I love fall weddings because it gives us the opportunity to use fun textures and flowers that are not available year round. The little white daisy-looking flowers are called chamomile and the little yellow ones that look like buttons are called tansy.

Last March a customer came in and asked for help planning the centerpiece for a Las Vegas themed party. It led to the conversation that Colleen, my manager, had never been to Las Vegas. I had been a couple times while I was living in San Diego for an internship at a flower shop, I had been a couple times for a conference called Wedding MBA and I had also been there with my husband for the American Institute of Floral Designer’s Conference. It’s a super fun city, but I had never been with a fellow floral designer.

I hopped right on the computer and checked out when Wedding MBA was this year and there was a screaming deal for the conference. I found affordable tickets for the plane and decided that this was the perfect trip for my soon to be 50 year old manager who hadn’t even been to the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas!

I also double checked with my amazing husband who would have to take care of our almost 2 year old without me for a few days. Luckily we have a fabulous team of my parents, my mother in law and our child care provider and we were able to make everything happen.

We went a few days early to the conference so Colleen could see Las Vegas and so that we could check out the hotels and their flowers!

1

We made it! At one of my favorite hotels in Vegas, Cosmopolitan! I LOVE sparkle and crystals!

2

The Bellagio is a florist’s dream! This is the arrangement just for the concierge desk!

3

How cool is this fall display in the Bellagio?!

4

This scarecrow is adorable at the Bellagio!

We love that art is created out of flowers!

We had such an amazing time our first day! Can’t wait to share more!  We are still brainstorming how we can design something on this scale in Toledo!

 

 

 

 

 

I had so much fun with Jackie from our first meeting. I absolutely loved her colors and check out her amazing dress!  She has two of the most adorable dogs and they were so well behaved!  Don’t forget your furry children when you get married! They look great with flowers too!

Jackie’s friend sells pumpkins so she chose to have a pumpkin arrangement on each table. Perfect for a fall wedding!

I LOVE fall weddings! Check out this super fun bouquet!  Kristina brought us a picture that she loved and we created a similar version for her with more orange. The texture used in this wedding was just incredible! It was a little chilly for the guests, but at least they were able to have the outdoor wedding of their dreams!

Here at Beautiful Blooms by Jen, we just love LOVE! Jill has been a customer for years and we were so excited when she told us about her wedding to Joni!  The love just radiates from these two and we had so much planning with them!

Their ceremony was at Wildwood Metropark in the garden and then they had a party that included a tent in the street, outside Treo, in downtown Sylvania. So fun!

We first met Amanda when she was working at Jem Photography in downtown Sylvania with us. We know the pictures are going to be fabulous!  Because ours just do not do these fun colors justice!

Amanda came in with a picture of exactly what she wanted for her bouquet. We were able to get in the miniature calla lilies in the exact colors and we hope she loves how it turned out as much as we do!

What a cool wedding!  Check out this beautiful bride! And they braved the rain showers and got married outside at Toledo Botanical Gardens. Wish we had pictures of their awesome centerpieces that they made with bulk orchids from Beautiful Blooms by Jen but it was so dark in the reception venue when we were there adding flowers to the cake!
