Hilton Ballroom Wedding

Sarah + Dustin = Meant to Be!

An Amazing April Wedding



Sarah and Dustin's wedding was one for the books!

For the bridal bouquet, Sarah chose a handheld with stems and some texture with a spill drop shape. It included wax flowers, heather, tulips, lizzy, ranunculus, and roses in the colors of peach, mauve, lavender, green, and deep wine/purple. The bridesmaids had bouquet's similar to Sarah's, but were more rounded. Dustin's boutonniere included two peach spray roses with peach ranunculus, heather, and wax flower. The groomsmen had boutonnieres with two spray roses, heather, wax flower, and greens.

The couple's ceremony took place at Lumen Christi Church in Mequon, where they were surrounded by many friends and family to say their "I do's". After, the wedding party took a trip downtown to the lakefront for a gorgeous shoot. They then continued on to the reception, held at the Hilton Ballroom in Downtown Milwaukee. There, the music, dancing, and love flowed throughout the night.

We were so happy to have been part of this couple's special day. Congrats to Sarah and Dustin, we wish you many years of memories and love!

Cancer Awareness Bridal Shoot

Cancer Awareness Bridal Shoot
Heather, A Warrior.

Florist - Bank of Flowers

Heather is battling a relapse of a rare form of bone cancer called High Grade Ewing's Sarcoma. Her support system and source of strength is her family - her husband Gregory and their two little girls, Stella and Ivie Mira (short for Miracle).

Every two weeks Heather goes in for treatment for five days in a row, which takes a toll on her body. The doctors have given her a 20-30% chance of survival, but she is fighting 100% for every chance of remission. Heather's reason? "I do this all for my girls- they need a mother. Without this treatment my chances of survival would be much smaller."

Linked above is her Go Fund Me page - your contribution will help with her travel expenses to the clinic as well as everyday needs for her family. With the holiday season upon us. let's extend our love and compassion to those in need.

Everyone at Bank of Flowers as well as Heather appreciate your support.

This photo shoot may have been taken in July, but this Wisconsin weather lately has made us miss this gorgeous shoot!

Our couple put their own unique twist on the widely celebrated holiday with a beautiful color palette of burgundy and dusty blue. They chose their favorite park for a stunning natural background and brought a cozy and casual vibe to a usually chaotic day. Keeping with the simple theme, picnic tables with mason jars, greenery, and florals were present throughout. But wanting to celebrate 4th of July, the couple sprinkled in red velvet cupcakes, festive drinks, smoke bombs, and of course, fireworks, ending the night with a bang.

Our Vase Giveaway!

Our Vase Giveaway!
What a Success!

As you well may know we at Bank of Flowers do our Friday Name Game where we give away free flowers to those who are the picked names for that Friday. Well, we decided to up our Fridays even more!

On September 1st, we hosted our Vase Giveaway. This giveaway was one for the books! Both of our Bank of Flowers locations opened at 8 AM to give away free vases to the first 150 people through our doors. These special vases can be brought back to the store every Friday for the rest of the year to be filled with FREE FLOWERS!

The giveaway was a HUGE success. Both locations had a lone down the block (with the earliest people lining up at 5:45!). All vases had a home by 8:30 AM and those who didn't receive a vase left with a gorgeous rose. We couldn't have pulled this off without all the hard work of our Bank of Flowers teams (and of course our shop kitty Chloe!).

Congrats to all of our Vase Giveaway winners, we can't wait to see you every Friday for the rest of the year!
