We had a blast at the Rock the Veil Bridal Show on Thursday night. We were so excited from just returning from our conference so the creative juices were flowing! That was one of the big reasons we signed up to participate in the Rock the Veil Bridal Show and Colleen actually convinced me to buy these super fun metal pieces while we were at the conference because she fell in love.

We love to participate in bridal shows because it is our chance to design whatever we want and have some fun. Colleen chose to go with a tropical beach theme since the show was at Maumee Bay State Park Lodge.  Wouldn’t that be super fun for a Maumee Bay wedding? This gorgeous linen is from Meredith Party Rentals.

We designed gorgeous tropical leaves and orchids coming out of the lanterns with woven grasses and hanging green orchids on the sides. The we even decorated the votives with twine and seashells to tie our tropical beach theme together.

Then Colleen designed this super sweet bouquet which would be perfect for a flower girl, mother of the bride or groom, or even for a bridesmaid!

We LOVE Maumee Bay State Park weddings and we were so excited to see that they are working on some beautiful renovations right now! Can’t wait to see the finished product!  Kendra, the event coordinator is fabulous too!

We can’t wait to start meeting with all the brides and grooms we met on Thursday and hope everyone loves our green tropical lantern wedding theme! Can’t you picture one of these lantern trios up at the altar or in the entryway at a reception? It would be such a wow! They are now available for rent from Beautiful Blooms by Jen.

Devon and Kyle were married in April in the Caribbean and yesterday was their wedding reception in Toledo! Devon decided to do bouquets for herself and bridesmaids as well because they would be taking all of their formal pictures here in Ohio.

So the bride for our wedding today played on my first fastpitch softball team back when I was in third grade and she was in fourth. Her dad was our coach. Imagine my surprise when she walks in to schedule and appointment for her wedding flowers. I love blasts from the past!  Erica and Adrian are such a fun couple and they did not miss a single detail for their wedding!  As it storms out my window, I am really hoping that it is not raining at their wedding up in Brooklyn, MI!

Their wedding took place at Hidden Lake Gardens today.  Erica’s bouquet was white garden roses that smelled amazing, orange ranunculus, green hypericum berries, white hydrangea, dusty miller and succulents.

Their location at the gardens was gorgeous! These were on the chairs.

Aren’t these some of the most gorgeous centerpieces you have ever seen?

Each person got to take home a succulent in these super fun yellow containers. I love how it adds to the tablescape and is also the favor.

They had super fun areas for hanging out and listening to the jazz band.

Here’s a view of the tent.

As I said before, not detail left forgotten!

We had so much fun planning Kait and Jeff’s wedding! I have known Kait and Jeff since before they started dating because I went to college with them. It was so awesome that Kait thought to call me when they got engaged! They got married on the beach in the Caribbean and had a reception in Columbus when they got back.  I loved all of their creative details!  Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
