Dylan & Anna's Lake Mayfield Marina Wedding was so much fun! We love outdoor weddings (when the weather is just right), and these two picked a beautiful backdrop for the big day. Their color palette was a delicate mint, with some taupe, white and blue. It was rustic, bohemian and the perfect pop for the nature inspired decor.
We wanted to utilize lots of texture for their florals - from the greenery fillers to the thistle and amaranthus, this floral design was all about boho!
Brandi and Andy had a two-state wedding event. For those of you who are from the area, you know that actually sounds much more involved than it is in reality. The couple was married at the Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Vancouver and then hopped the state line to host their reception in Portland at the World Trade Center.
They opted to clean and classic - black and white with a subtle accent of greenery (this is perfect for 2017 Pantone color of the year lovers). Roses, hydrangea, bells of Ireland and green hypericum berries.
One of my favorite floral designs for their wedding was the adorable pomander ball of miniature mums. This is a great option for flower girls, but also looks lovely as chair or aisle decor.

Ashley and Chris' wedding was hosted at the beautiful Abernethy Chapel & Ballroom Wedding in Oregon City.
Their floral color palette was created with plum, purple and lavender with touches of greenery and white. For the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, we used calla lily, stock, hydrangea, roses and green hypericum berries. The boutonniere was crafted with seeded eucalyptus, miniature mums and calla lily.
We used much of the same floral for the large ceremony arrangements that were placed on columns. We added curly willow branches for added height and filled out the arrangement with additional greenery. We loved how much dimension and texture the arrangement had!
The centerpieces were floral rings that surrounded a trio of purple water filled cylinder vases and floating candles. We used three shades of hydrangea for the fluffy factor and accented with roses and stock.
Nothing says spring weddings like peach, blush, fuschia, coral and white. You may recognize some of these photos from my homepage. This is one of my favorite designs of the year! Brittany and Jeremiah's wedding was at Columbia Edge Water Golf Club- we love working with their team and the ballroom has so much gorgeous natural light!
For Brittany's bouquet, we used three types of roses- garden roses, traditional roses and spray roses, as well as hydrangea and ranunculus. We wrapped the stem in a white satin ribbon and completed the look with the prettiest of bows!
For the escort card display, we created an arrangement with willow branches and suspended white orchids and crystal strands. At the base were a variety of pillar vases with candles.
Centerpieces were created with many of the same florals as Britany's bouquet, with the addition of carnations, stock and LOTS of floating candles. It was romantic, classic and cheerful.
We decorated the cake with a cascade of garden roses and stock, sprinkling rose petals around the base. They looked gorgeous with the gold sequin linen!
We love working with the garden roses. The Juliet variety is not only gorgeous, but it smells heavenly and it's a nice full bloom. You don't need many to make a BIG impact. They're also a great alternative to the peonies when they're not in season! If you want soft, romantic florals, the garden rose is a worthy consideration!
Tauni and Kevin selected a classic color theme- black and white with splashes of gold. We used all white florals to create their arrangements with subtle accents of gold and black. A little behind the scenes- we actually painted some of the seeded eucalyptus black for a dramatic pop!
The bride's bouquet was created with hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus, freesia, roses, anemone and gold glitter circles as accents (isn't this element so neat?!).
Centerpieces were a combination of high and low options- some florals, some candles. We created the tall centerpieces with willow branches, white hydrangea and seeded eucalyptus. They were placed in clear vases, which complimented the trio of floating candles on the "low tables" beautifully!
This couple has so much personality and they were so wonderful to work with! Their purple, yellow and fuchsia/red color theme was vibrant and unique. We loved how the bridesmaids dresses, umbrellas and linen choices tied everything together. It was hard to NOT be happy seeing it all!
For Stephanie's bouquet, we used Gerber Daisy, Calla Lily, Stock and Billy Balls.
For the centerpieces, we used many of the same flowers as the bride's bouquets but added delphinium (a great alternative to orchids), roses, Asiatic lilies and tulips.
Erin and Dom's beautiful wedding at The Aerie at Eagle Landing was casual elegance! They're a laid-back couple and planned an event that really reflected that. Their color choices were quintessential Spring - they opted for a posey shaped bouquet and whimsical centerpieces which created a joyful atmosphere.
Erin's wildflower inspired bouquet (and centerpiece) florals were created with mostly mums, freesia, calla lily and hyacinth. The bridesmaid's bouquets had a similar look but we added spider mums, hydrangea and roses also.
Their centerpieces were SO much fun! We had a few that were wheat grass and Gerber daisies, while others were in cute white textured bud vases with freeform florals.
On an unrelated note, we love that Erin's wedding dress had pockets!

Erin & Brian's patriotic themed wedding at The Reserve Golf Club was a fantastic red, white and blue military wedding affair! We adore couples that embrace the unique details of their relationship and find a way to make them part of the big day. Erin and Brian definitely did that!
Erin's bouquet was created with red roses and white Asiatic lily, accented with rhinestones. Her bridesmaids carried all white rose bouquets.
Centerpieces were created with white mums, stock, red roses and the smallest splash of blue came from thistle, and places in gold vessels. The base of each arrangement had a ring of red and white rose petals.
We were delighted to be part of making Erin & Brian's wedding dreams come true!
