Danielle & Brian = Meant to Be!
A Gorgeous October Wedding

Florist - Bank of Flowers
Reception - The Bog

A little throwback to the stunning wedding of Danielle and Brian, who tied the knot on October 14th.

The couple chose a beautiful arrangement of flowers for their wedding day. Danielle's bouquet was a textured handheld with stems including ivory roses, white hydrangea, burgundy hypericum berries, only one yellow rose, yellow spray roses, yellow solidago, and a mix of greens. The one yellow rose was to commemorate her father, and she brought in his ring to add to the bouquet as well. Brian's boutonniere included two ivory spray roses with mixed greens and burgundy hypericum berries.

Danielle and Brian's ceremony was held at their church, St. Mary's, where they exchanged their "I dos" in the company of many close friends and family. Their day continued on to the reception, which was held at The Bog, with the tables (and cake!) accented with flowers. They danced the night away, surrounded with so much love and laughter.

We were so thrilled to have been part of Danielle and Brian's special day! Congrats to the happy couple, here's to many years of happiness and memories!

A Stunning October Wedding

Florist: Bank of Flowers

This blog is a throwback to the gorgeous October wedding of Debbie and Paul!

The flowers of Debbie and Paul's wedding were just breathtaking. The couple chose an arrangement of roses, spray roses, and hydrangeas with plenty of greens in ivory, nude, light pink, and blush. They also got adorable succulents for each of the tables!

The couple's wedding day started out with them reading the letters they wrote to each other as they got ready, talk about tear jerking! Their ceremony took place at the couple's church, St. James. They then moved on to the reception at the Silver Spring Country Club, which had amazing backdrops for jaw dropping photos. All of Debbie and Paul's big day was beautifully captured by Stephanie Leigh Photography.

We were so thrilled to have been part of this happy couple's special day! Congratulations to Debbie and Paul, here's to many years full of love and laughter!

Wedding Giveaway!

A Whimsical Day for Amy and Lindsay
What a Dream Come True!

Month: October
Photo and Video: DeGroot Film Co.
Wedding Planning: Weddings With a Twist, LLC
Flowers: Bank of Flowers
Dress Designer: Stella York
Bartending: Drink Inc


This may have happened back in October, but it's still on our minds as one of the most amazing experiences for Bank of Flowers to have been a part of! 

Katie Guth of DeGroot Film Co is the one who recruited us as well as many other talented wedding professionals to give away a wedding for FREE to a couple in need. We couldn't say no! The contest was set up in May and the wedding date was chosen for October 23rd, so it was a limited timeline, but well worth it!

Many couples submitted their stories of why they should be chosen, but in the end, Amy and Lindsay were the lucky couple and they couldn't have been happier! Amy and Lindsay have two foster children as well as a child of her own. Lindsay had lost both her jobs while taking care of Amy, who had a rare brain disease and had fourteen surgeries within one year. The military tried medically discharging Amy on four different occasions, but she refused. She was able to reenlist for another six years.

The happy couple chose to use orange and purple flowers to make their special day really pop! They were both so grateful to have won this giveaway and share their love with their friends and family. Together, all vendors were able to provide a wedding valued at over $24,000! We couldn't be happier for Amy and Lindsay and wish them all the best.

Erin & Travis

Reception:  Golden Mast, Okauchee
Month:        October

Erin and Travis didn't want to have the "typical" October wedding of fall colors and flowers.  They chose instead to use bright colors to match their fun personalities.  And they chose to be married in one of our favorite churches, the chapel at St. John's Military Academy.  It's English Gothic stone interior and beautiful rose window makes the chapel a beautiful ceremony location.


Erin selected flowers that would pop, since the bridesmaids dresses were a bright pink.  We designed her bouquet to have lots of color and texture which included pink stargazer lilies, orange mini calla lilies, celosia, and pin cushion proteas, magenta gladiola blossoms, purple stock, lime green button mums and hypericum berries finished with seeded eucalyptus.  Her bridemaids and flower girl carried smaller versions of Erin's bouquet. 



The gentlemen of the wedding party wore a single orange mini calla.  Travis's boutonniere featured an accent of a hot pink spray rose and green hypericum berry.  The mothers and grandmothers wore wrist corsages on rhinestone bands with a mix of orange and hot pink spray roses and green berries.


Because the chapel is so ornate, the only decor the couple chose for the church were pew decorations. Hanging vases of white hydrangeas and stargazer lilies lined both sides of the aisle, tied with bright pink satin ribbons.  After the ceremony, we transferred these vases  to the reception hall at the Golden Mast, where we placed two hanging vases into antique sewing drawers for half of the tables.  We added orange and hot pink rose petals to the remainder of the dining tables and cocktail tables.



We had so much fun working with Erin and Travis and were proud to be a part of their special day.  Congratulations from all of us at Bank of Memories & Flowers, Pewaukee!!
