Kate + Jordan = Natural Bliss

Ceremony and Reception: Schlitz Audubon Nature Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Month: August


Kate and Jordan have been long time customers of ours at Bank of Memories & Flowers which always makes preparing the flowers for a wedding even more rewarding for us!  Jordan has been buying all of his flowers for his sweet heart, Kate, here long before they were marred this August.


Their incredibly natural yet elegant ceremony took place in the middle of the forest at the Schlitz Audubon Center, complete with 30-40 massive trees towering over them as they exchanged their vows.



The bouquets consisted of an organic mixture of Queen Anne's lace, purple stock, white hydrangeas, purple gladiolas, green hypericum berries, lavender roses, purple lisianthus and touches of fresh herbs (mint, basal, and rosemary)!  Her bridesmaids' dresses were an incredibly elegant shade of deep plum, each with a different style.



 
Kate's hair was weaved back with large curls -- a large purple gladiola blossom was nestled off to the side to complete the look. After just a quick walk down a wooded path, the bride and groom were able to pose for some amazing photos of them out over Lake Michigan from the beach. What a venue!

After the ceremony, the guests made the easy walk through the gardens to the Schlitz Audubon reception area.  This area is so unique -- its large wood pillars and windows give it a rustic feel while still providing elegance and class -- truly a perfect venue for all lovers of nature and the outdoors!


Kate and Jordan's table centerpieces had a collection of different sized vintage bottles, each filled with purple stock, Queen Anne's Lace, fresh mint and blossoming basil.

Thank you, Jordan and Kate for letting us be part of so many incredible memories -- we look forward to continuing to do so for many, many years to come!
