Alta Lodge

A gorgeous wedding up at Alta Lodge last summer. I used wheat, dahlias, zinnias, roses, millet, stock, and hydrangea. The bride wanted lots of fun details like, mason jars, natural twine and burlap. The mason jar & twine wedding was a very popular look for the summer of 2011.

This was a beautiful mountain wedding up at The Canyon's. Shoot, I didn't bring my camera for set up. I always do that! Love the lime green coxcomb (celosia). It adds such a great color and marvelous texture.

I would have to say, I think I make such lovely boutonnieres. I really take a lot of time in creating them. Most blooms are wired and taped together, then the entire stem is wrapped in coordinating ribbon. Gorgeous! My boutonnieres usually average between $10.00-$15.00 each.


I love orange. Orange flowers look so great paired with whites and creams to create a crisp fresh summery feel. We were supposed to have orange ranunculus rockin in this bouquet, but alas, sometimes they are just not in season. Ranunculus have increased in popularity as of late. They really are beautiful, I especially adore their round papery petals. I would say they are in season most of the year, but on and off sometimes. Oh geeze, that really is confusing.
