Tea Pots

Tea pots & tea cups oh my! I had about a million little cups to fill for this sweet wedding. My work area looked like a china shop in England. I used dahlias, roses, queen annes lace, dusty miller, petal-less sunflowers, billy balls, hydrangea & roses.

Orange & Purple

Looooove this orange and purple bouquet. I will never get sick of using succulents.

The Homestead

This was such a beautiful and whimsical wedding that took place up at The Homestead in Midway, Utah. This awesome couple decided to get creative and had their ceremony on top of the crater. The crater is a giant geyser looking mound that guests can hike up to get amazing 360 views of the surrounding mountains. Within and below the top of the crater is a natural hot springs you can soak in. The Homestead actually renovated the top of the crater to now host wedding ceremonies. It was blazing hot, so I didn't really take any pictures of the site :( Need to get a hold of some of the professional shots. This bride wanted a very organic and meadow like look to her flower designs. We used ferns, delphinium, scabiosa pods, iris, stock, curly willow, bush ivy, kale, kermit mums, fuji mums, rosemary, hydrangea, & statice. It was a nice change of scene using some different varieties of flowers that I don't usually think of. Please brides, challenge me!!!
As designers, I know we get accustomed to using the same flowers and colors time after time. I like changing up the look. I'm glad my creepy nude man painting made it into one of the shots. He loves wedding flowers! Enjoy these photos!

Stein Eriksen

Summer 2012 was the summer of ivory, white & yellow. Soft vintage inspiration in the mountains. This lovely wedding took place on one of the decks of Stein Eriksen Lodge. The weather started acting up, but made for a lovely backdrop. Good thing I tighten this arch down good or it would have been a goner. One of my favorite roses used was the pale yellow Creme De La Creme.


Love the pale blush and ivory tones going on in this bouquet.


A beautiful botanical inspired bouquet. Oriental lilies, Dahlias, Hydrangea, Coxcomb, Billy Balls, Artichokes, Scabiosa Pods and looped leaves were used. This bouquet makes my heart go pitter-patter.
