When Eliza came in and showed me her inspiration for her bouquet and wedding, I fell in love with the amazing colors and textures. We then realized that I knew her dad from the Horticulture industry from when I was teaching floral design. As a landscape designers daughter, she was all about the unique flowers. I had so much fun picking the flowers for this outdoor Nazareth Hall wedding because I knew Eliza trusted me to take make her vision a reality.

Check out one of my favorite bouquets I’ve ever made below! Thank you so much to Kent and Stephanie Photography for capturing our work!

Anna and Jacob came to us from California a few months ago and poor Anna had just had knee surgery. When she came for her first consultation, our consultation room is upstairs and she said no problem and hobbled right on up! We planned her wedding the first day and then had a skype meeting and then her wedding day was here!

I was in love with her simple, elegant dress!  Anna came in with a plan of red roses and baby’s breath and then fell in love with circus roses when she saw them in the store. The rest is history and she had a beautiful wedding!

The bride and groom met fencing and there was a foil at each chair along the aisle that they held up as the bride walked down the aisle. So fun! I love when bride’s and groom’s incorporate their love story into their ceremony!

Unfortunately it was so windy that the plan for the altar arrangements had to be moved inside. Luckily in the gorgeous windows of Cadet West, they looked awesome!

I met Taylor’s mom through a networking organization I am involved in and she recommended Taylor to me. When I met with them the first time, I fell in love! I loved the colors and the textures that Taylor was looking for! Flowers were a very important part of her wedding and I was so honored that she trusted me to let me have some fun and be creative!

Please take a look at these gorgeous flowers below highlighted by some awesome shots by Dave and Kerri Photography at the elegant Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, Ohio.
