A few weeks ago La Fleur teamed up with Riehl Events to create lovely floral designs for a Indian wedding celebration. Thursday night was a traditional Mehndi ceremony. I decorated the Mandap with garland of bright yellow carnations accented with green hanging amaranthus. So sad that I forgot my camera, so no photos. It was gorgeous believe me!

Saturday was the traditional American ceremony followed by a huge party at Rice Eccles. We decorated all the long 30' tables with fresh greenery, blooming jasmine, spider mums, orchids, bowls of purple alstromeria and rose petals. It looked really amazing!

Here are a few photos....

Rachel had her wedding up at Rose Sachs Gardens last week. I have never done an event up at the gardens before and I have to tell you, it was beautiful. It's just minutes up Parley's Canyon but you feel away from it all. The winds were picking up so we had a hard time lighting candles and Matt had to stand guard next to the ceremony arrangements so they didn't knock over. He disappeared right before the bridal party starting walking.... he is good, oh so good.

Bridal bouquet of eggplant & flame mini callas, dahlias, variegated pitt, milva roses, super green roses, & green hypericum. Stems were wrapped in plum colored ribbon.

Accents of cut lemon & limes were used throughout the floral design. This cake was so hard to decorate in the gusting wind but I managed to pull it all together!

Again the lemon & lime theme on the inside tables. Loved how bright and summery everything felt.

Liz's Grand Affair

Liz's wedding was so much fun to work on. Not only because she was a super cool bride but that she picked uncommon colors and themes. The color scheme was aqua and red....so fun! They also had a vintage tennis theme going on with so many creative details. Her ceremony took place outside in the Grand Salon Courtyard of The Grand America. It was a morning ceremony so the air was crisp & fresh. Not a cloud in the sky. So gorgeous. We did two different styles of centerpieces. One was in a aqua ribbon wrapped vase and the other were in tall silver glass squares. I used roses, dahlias, ranunculus, gerbera daisies, spray roses, & carnations all in shades of red. Other accents were hydrangea, red dogwood and seeded eucalyptus. Here are a few images.....

Britt's Sundance Wedding

Wow, what a great Memorial Day wedding weekend by La Fleur. 3 weddings and 1 bridal sitting bouquet!! It's so fun working on all these amazing weddings! This wedding featured is Britt's big day down in Sundance. We had our fingers crossed for good weather and it worked! Spectacular views of partly snowy mountains, green lower hills and the start of blooming trees and flowers. The sun was creeping through the dark clouds creating amazing light and shadows. Her ceremony was out on the deck by the Creekside Room. So lovely. I decorated a wooden archway with variegated pitt, orchids, hydrangea, queen anne's lace and ginkgo leaves. The entire theme & symbol of the wedding was the ginkgo leaf which had sentimental value for the bride. The aisle was covered in white rose petals and single gingko leaves. Her are a few of my pictures. So sad that I didn't snap a picture of the bridal bouquet. Looking forward to seeing the professional images....
