2018 – An Enchanting Rose Garden Wedding at Phipps Conservatory

Walking in the Rose Garden at Phipps is just like going into Burnett’s The Secret Garden.  We were first greeted by fragrant, delicate pink and white Astilbe, Hostas, and other lush greens.  White garden chairs were set up in the center of the Rose Garden for the ceremony.

Our bride, Courtney,  and her bridesmaids carried lush bouquets of ivory roses and peonies.

The romantic centerpieces carried forth the same lush tones with roses, hydrangea, gypsy dianthus, peonies and flowing greens.

The cake was simply decorated, light pink spray roses adding a breath of color, and white peonies softening the traditional white form.

We were enchanted to be a part of our bride’s special day!  In spite of the Kenny Chesney concert, the Journey/ Def Leppard concert and  high humidity with threatening rain, a grand time was had by all who were part of Courtney and Steve’s beautiful day.

2018 – “The Hurrier We Go…”

“Sometimes, the Hurrier we go, the Behinder we get!”  That’s a quote from my beloved Grandma.  Today, it seems somehow fitting.

Since the spring wedding season took off at a full-blown gallop in April, we have been so busy producing flowers and taking care of events that we’ve become very behind in posting some of recent bouquets.

Here are some beauties that needed sharing:

Big, Textured & Beautiful!

Julie had a vision for her wedding that we enjoyed fulfilling.

Her request for her bouquet was for it to be “lush” & full, with lots of texture.

Julie’s bouquet, pictured above (left),  included Garden Roses, White Peonies, Light Pink Spray Roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, Lisianthus, Soft Astilbie & lots of flowing greens. The bouquet complimented her light ivory lace dress very nicely.

The Bridesmaids’ bouquets were similar in the textures used in the Bridal bouquet, but on a smaller scale.

Using lots of texture & greenery is a trend that we are seeing often this year. We hope you like what we created for Julie!
