I can’t believe I skipped this gorgeous wedding when I was blogging! This super sweet bride looked incredible and this wedding was not missing a single detail! I can’t wait to share it with you! Prentice’s mom was an fabulous wedding coordinator!

It was a chilly April day and so the picture below is with the cutest sweater on over the bridal gown but doesn’t it look great?

Prentice had a picture of a bouquet she loved and we went for it. We love when a bride and their mom trust us to have some fun and make beautiful designs!

Alisha came in for the first time and when she mentioned she was all about bling, I knew we were going to click! Check out her gorgeous dress!  I love that she chose shades of purple and fuchsia for her colors. They just popped!

Of course it was the first hot day of the year and this poor bridal party was super tough making sure they had the perfect pictures! We’re so excited to see the pictures from Grand Lubell Photography! The backdrop of the Toledo Zoo in June will be perfect!

Alisha's bouquet includes lavender roses, park purple carnations, lavender stock, and lavender lisianthus.

The bridesmaids bouquets consisted of orchids- a perfect mini version of the brides!

Unfortunately due to the space allowed we couldn't have the alter arrangements outside, however we found a perfect place for them in the reception hall! The tall vase held silver branches , crystals, hydrangea, and purple and fuschia dendros.

What a gorgeous wow! Silver branches with hanging crystal votives were designed in a tall vase with shades of purple flowers.

The Toledo Zoo was the perfect backdrop for her purple pops of color! The tall and short centerpieces gave the room so much depth and color!

The head table arrangement was by far our favorite piece! Tall vases balanced a mirror between them with crystal balls, orchids, silver branches, hydrangea, and lighting.

Maggie and I went to school together growing up. It was so fun to have her come in and chat about wedding flowers. Maggie has such a fun style and I really wanted to show her personality in her flowers. With a Toledo Zoo wedding, it’s the place for funky flowers! Check out the craspedia and kangaroo paw in her bouquet!

In 2013 we designed the flowers for Tracey’s sister Carolynn’s wedding and it was such an honor to now do Tracey’s!  Tracey lived out of town and so Carolynn helped with a lot of the planning. With a Toledo Zoo wedding it is always fun to do fun colors!

Tracey ordered bulk flowers so that they could design their own centerpieces. Didn’t they turn out super cute? Loved how the entire theme turned out beautiful!

Of course when Amy had planned the wedding to be outside in the gardens, it decided to rain…. So we added on these fun altar pieces on iron stands, rented from BBBJ, to add a pop of color to the stage.

Melissa and Peter’s wedding was so fun because we used a bunch of flowers that we don’t typically use in weddings. Melissa was looking for orange flowers that were super cool textures. They turned out awesome and they were the perfect flowers for a Toledo Zoo wedding!
