Ashley and Coty’s wedding had a mix of traditional flowers and pops of succulents throughout the whole day. Ashley’s bouquet was no exception. She had ivory roses, mother of pearl roses, blush and light peach spray roses, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, blush stock, and of course the succulents. To fit the color scheme and look she also went with a burlap and lace wrap around the handle to tie it all together perfectly. The bouquets Ashley chose for her bridesmaids complimented hers perfectly with similar flowers and the same gray green, ivory, blush, and pale peach tones. We can’t forget about Coty and his handsome groomsmen! All the guys had 2 blush spray roses with greens but Coty had a little extra pop with a succulent on his. All the boutonnieres were wrapped in twine, one of our favs!!

The ceremony isle was lines with small mason jars hanging from the chairs with white hydrangeas and greens filling them. Down the isle was the stunning backdrop arch with hydrangea, roses, lots of greenery and more. The arch had a larger piece draped on the top left corner and a smaller piece on the right side. During the reception each table had 5 inch grey boxes with theme colors and flowers in them. even the cake tied in with the theme with 3 groups of flowers cascading down. Behind the head table they used the flowers from the archway and hung them on the fireplace but added more greens cascading down.

We were so honored to have been part of their special day. Congratulations Ashley and Coty!

Kelly and Derek had a lush wedding with soft accents in colors in the timeless third ward Milwaukee. Kelly’s bouquet was very original and looked like it was straight out of a photo shoot. In her bouquet she had pink and white Protea, Roses, Olive Branch, Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, and Gunni Eucalyptus. Her bridesmaids were looking absolutely beautiful with their mix matching dresses that work together flawlessly. Their bouquets were just like Kelly’s but without the Protea and no cascading greens. Derek also did something different for his boutonniere. He had a succulent backed with greens. Each of this groomsmen had a boutonniere of mixed greens.

For the reception they moved inside but kept the soft lush vibe they created outside. For the tables they had 2 different types of centerpieces. Half of the tables had a gold lantern and the other half had 3 containers with a candles. But around both they had different sized succulents and a mix of greens. They also had small pops or greens scattered throughout different areas of the reception to tie everything together.

Kelly and Derek are absolutely adorable together and we are wishing them a lifetime of happiness!

The Farm at Dover

Kristina’s bouquet is one her guests will never forget. It had some texture but was more lush and had an oval shape. The bouquet had fuchsia peony, peach garden roses, tangerine spray roses, and some craspedia for a pop of yellow. They were all wrapped beautifully together in satin. The bridesmaids had smaller versions of Kristina’s with more greens. Dylan’s boutonniere had 2 light peach spray roses with small pops of fuchsia and yellow accents and was backed with some greens. All of his groomsmen had 1 peach spray rose backed by greens. The color scheme used in the bridal parties flowers flowed and went perfectly with the flowers used in the ceremony. Kristina and Dylan said their vows under a gorgeous arch with 2 large arrangements on it. The flowers matched the bouquet flowers and color scheme. At the entrance of the isle there were 2 whiskey barrels that had arrangements of them that matched the arch pieces.

After the couple said their I Do’s it was time to party, and they sure did. At the reception the color scheme continued perfectly. All the tables had centerpieces that matched the bridesmaids bouquets. The head table had a jaw dropping 25ft of lush mixed greens with pops of flowers all the way down. But the flowers don’t stop there! Kristina and Dylan’s beautiful 4 tiered cake had a flower cake topper with small clusters of flowers cascading down the rest of the cake. The whole day was captured flawlessly from the amazing East Elm Photography!

We are so grateful we got to be apart of their special day and are wishing Kristina and Dylan nothing but years of bliss!

Fete of Wales Photoshoot

West Coast Vibes

This photoshoot has to be one of our favorites! All the colors and styles of vendors blended together perfectly. For this shoot we got to play with a lot of different textures and flowers we don’t usually get to use. For the table centerpieces we switched things up and put an aloe plant in the center of it. surrounded with Banksia, Pin Cushion Protea (for another unique statement), Anthurium, Blue Thistle, peach/cream Garden Roses, and Eucalyptus. But let’s be real, the showstopper was that bouquet!! We has so much fun making it with King Protea, Anthurium, Ranunculus, Garden Roses, Flat Fern, Palm, and Monstera Leaf. The grooms boutineer was a single beautiful Ranunculus with some greens behind. Let’s not forget about the small things that pulled everything together! The greenery on the circle ceremony backdrop or the suspended leaves behind the donut bar! This wedding exudes a fresh fun style while still keeping the wedding look clean and classic. We are so thankful to have been apart of this awesome shoot with some amazing vendors, go check out their links above!

When Abby walked in she immediately stole the show with her jaw-dropping bouquet. White ranunculas and peonies were paired flawlessly with the greenery brunia, broad leaf dusty miller, snow berries, gunni eucalyptus, cedar, and white pine.

Discovery World Wedding

Kristin and Ndiva

Happily Ever After

Kristin and Ndiva’s wedding was one unforgettable night!

As soon as Kristin walked down the isle she made a statement with her bold burnt orange and tangerine bouquet. It was filled with different shades of Roses, Cymbidium Orchids and unique splashes of Coxcomb. They were paired with the muted greens of dusty miller and brunia. The bouquet also had hints of Navy Blue Privet Berries that matched the men’s ties and the bridesmaids dresses! The bridesmaids bouquet’s were smaller versions of Kristin’s but had only the roses and muted greens. We can’t forget the boutonnieres! Ndiva’s boutonniere balanced Kristin’s bouquet flawlessly with 2 roses and some greenery. The groomsmen all had very similar boutonnieres to Ndiva’s.

The wedding was held at Discovery World in Milwaukee. The venue is mostly white and muted tones so their color scheme of navy blue and oranges really popped. The reception had blue lighting which set a cool underwater tone to the night. At each of the tables the center pieces were candles with loose floral scattered around it. The floral consisted of small orange roses paired with some green leaves.

Congratulations to the newly weds! We are wishing you many anniversaries to come!

Doing a wedding photo shoot is completely different from a wedding and so much fun. It is a full day focused around the photos. We get perfectly stage the area to make sure the photos show off all of our amazing work. We got there at around 11am and didn’t leave until close to 6pm. We had to set up the table with centerpieces, overflow the chest with flowers, give the model her bouquet, and decorate the base and top of the cake all while the other vendors were running around getting all of their parts perfect too. There is a beautiful controlled chaos to the whole day. Working with all different people and vendors is one of the best parts of the day. We see all the work that goes into all the different parts of a wedding. We normally don’t see the photographer working hard to get the perfect shot or the makeup artist flawlessly complete the look of the bride. It is so amazing to get to see all of their work and appreciate it so much more. This photo shoot was so much fun and definitely one of our favorites, and look how AMAZING the photographs turned out!

Richfield Wedding

Jenna + Paul = Perfect

An outstanding August wedding

Jenna and Paul’s wedding was perfectly unique!

Jenna’s handheld bouquet was unforgettable. Her bouquet was organic and full of texture with a nude and off white palette with a splash of wine. It had burgundy dahlias, white hydrangeas, hanging amaranthus, and mother of pearl roses. Pairing those flowers with the greens of seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and broad leaf dusty miller made the bouquet come to life! The bridesmaids got a very similar smaller version of Jenna’s bouquet but with more hints of blush thrown in. For Paul’s boutonniere he had a single white rose with a mix of greens perfectly pulled together with a twine wrap. All the groomsmen and Jenna’s dad had a boutonniere that had matching greens with Paul’s. All of the bouquets and boutonnieres worked together effortlessly!

The reception, which was held at Terrace 167, had flowers flowing from every table. With Jenna and Paul’s wedding, they made everything perfectly unique to their personalities. All of the center pieces from the tables were flowers held in a variation of different bottles giving the venue and rustic and simplistic feel. There was a variation of sizes of bottles giving the center pieces all different heights. All the Feels Photography captured the story of their wedding beautifully!

We wish Jenna and Paul years of happiness and love. We are always happy to help contribute to a couple’s special day!

Beautiful Botanical Garden

Jenna and Zach were stunning on their special day!

Complimenting her Ivory dress, Jennas’ flowers were organic, green and textured with some pops of light peach! Variety of eucalyptus, succulents and roses made up the bouquet.
