Saemi at Sundance

Gorgeous colors for this romantic wedding down at the Sundance Resort. The bride Saemi wanted a romantic and traditional feel, so we used tons of roses, rose petals and hydrangea. She wanted shades of purple, reds, whites with gold accents. I ended up using white peonies, white & purple hydrangea, purple mini calla lilies, green hanging amaranthus, red "luna rossa" roses and purple "coolwater" roses. It all ended up looking very elegant. I wrapped the vases in beautiful gold ribbon and I think it looked great with the gold and purple linens. Wow, all I can say that it was so scary getting up on a ladder and hanging the fresh flower wreaths. That ceiling is so high, I thought I was going to die. Thankfully, my darling husband came down and hung the remainder of the wreaths. Life savor!!!! Again, these are just a few quick snapshots and I'll post the professional pics as soon as I can get my hands on them!

Amy Preview

The following pics are from Amy's wedding on June 13th. Her ceremony was at the breathtakingly beautiful Greek Orthodox church downtown and her reception was held at the Grand America. I seriously need to get a new camera, my pictures do not do justice to these vibrant flowers. I will have the professional photos posted soon, so please check back.

Amy loves flowers and loves color, so she pretty much gave me the go ahead to create whatever I thought would be amazing. The royal blue of the bridesmaid dressed just popped with bouquets of intense color. I tend to design with bright bold color in mind, more so then pastels. I used white peonies, blue hydrangea, red tulips, orange & hot pink roses, yellow freesia, and orange celosia. I love how this wedding turned out. We were setting up the flowers on the outside of the church as that huge dark rain storm started to blow into downtown Salt Lake City. Allison was drenched trying to save the gathered bunches! 200 red roses were used for rose petals that blanketed the church aisle. It was so romantic!


These simple red rose centerpieces were for a V.I.P. event that Zrii juice put on at the beautiful venue Cucina Nassi. The simplicity of the red roses looked amazing against the Tuscan formal interior.
