Ceremony/Reception - The Atrium


Caitlin and Spencer's wedding was just breathtaking!

We were in LOVE with the color combo of their wedding! For the bridal bouquet, Caitlin had a handheld with stems that had an organic and messy feel. It was full of mum, dahlia, peonies, ranunculus, freesia, waxflower, roses, and a mix of greens in the colors of ivory, cream, mustard yellow, and golden yellow. It was all tied together with gorgeous ribbon. The mismatched mustard bridesmaids dresses were to die for, and their bouquets, similar to Caitlin's, complimented them perfectly! For Spencer and his groomsmen, their boutonnieres all had a mix of greens wrapped in twine. Simple, but they tied the bridal party together!

Both their ceremony and reception took place at The Atrium in Shorewood. At their reception, they had backdrop flowers of greens as well as stunning trio cylinder candles that lined the aisle to bring the whole space together. After they said their "I do's" surrounded by many family and friends, the bridal party took time to take pictures on the boardwalk, which turned out amazing! They then continued their day on to the reception. The couple decided to reuse the ceremony greens and candles to decorate the tables. The newlyweds were a picture of pure happiness as the night was filled with much love, laughter, and music.

We were so happy to have been part of this couple's special day! Congrats to Caitlin and Spencer, here's to many years full of love and memories!

Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony/Reception: Seeboth

Kelly and Sam's September wedding can be summed up in two words: jaw dropping!

The couple's flowers were just lovely. For her bouquet, Kelly chose a textured handheld with exposed stems. She picked out an arrangement of hydrangeas, roses, spray roses, as well as plenty of greens in cream, ivory, white, sage, and grey. Her bridesmaids has bouquets of white hydrangeas and greens which went perfectly with their personalized bridesmaids dresses! Is anyone else in love?! The couple also included flickering lights, wooden pillars, lanterns, and loose greens to decorate their ceremony and reception.

Throughout the ceremony and reception, you could tell that not only were Kelly and Sam in love, but they were also best friends.

We were so excited to have taken part of Kelly and Sam's special day! Congrats to the happy couple, here's to many years of love and happiness!

Roof Top Proposal

Top of the World!
Cait and Dave = Match Made in Heaven

Month: November
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Wedding Planner: Weddings With a Twist
Photographer: The Keel Collective
Location: The View at Evolution

This styled proposal is a dream come true! We were so thrilled to have been apart of this gorgeous shoot, breathtakingly captured by The Keel Collective.

The location for the proposal was perfect! The View at Evolution was a stunning backdrop for Cait and Dave's proposal. The 'view' of Milwaukee brought a chic twist to the romantic occasion. It was also surprising warm despite being November!

For the flowers, we stuck to gorgeous whites, nudes, and a few simple greens for the surprise proposal. These elegant arrangements tied the scene together for Cait and Dave.

Once the engagement went underway, the newly engaged couple not only shared a lovely evening with jaw dropping views, they also had two tickets to see a Broadway show! We couldn't be happier for them and all from Bank of Flowers wish them the best.

After all of the holiday engagements, January marks the start of wedding planning for many. Brides-to-be are busy gathering ideas about their upcoming nuptials, and what better place to be inspired than the Wonderful World of Weddings show at State Fair Park in West Allis. Here, vendors from every corner of the wedding world gather to show off their wares and services, hoping to attract the attention of brides.
We look forward to this show every year, and always put our best foot forward.  Everyone here at Bank of Flowers had a part in the show, from the concept design for the booth, gathering of items to display, the flower designs, and even the set-up and take-down of the booth.  It's all hands on deck for events like this.
Shop owner Melissa Maas and director of operations Ceci Scheuber talked to so many wonderful ladies and their families, it was an amazing weekend!

Hilton Double Tree Wedding

Danielle and Chad's Wedding!

Ceremony: Brew City Church, Milwaukee
Reception: Hilton Double Tree, Milwaukee
Photographer: Nate Castner Photography
Flowers: Bank of Flowers
Cake:  Aggie's Bakery and Cake Shop
Month: September

Nothing says love like the red rose, and so it was a perfect choice for these two amazing people in love!  Add a touch of gold, and you've got a simply glamorous wedding!  Danielle chose a simple design for her bouquets.  She loved the idea of bright red roses accented with sparkling jewels.  It really stood out against her soft white dress.  Her maids all wore elegant dresses covered in gold sequins, so to contrast their flowers, the maids carried tight clusters of white roses.  The men wore simple boutonnieres of red or white spray roses.
The aisle of the church was accented with clusters of red roses vased, hanging from the pews.  They really added to the elegance and glamour of this wedding.  The reception was quite stunning with red roses everywhere!  Clusters of red roses on the tables came alive when tall goblet-style tiered holders were filled with gold sand and candles.  Even the cake was accented with gold frosting and red rose clusters and petals around the table. Everything came together so well, and looked amazing. We are so happy to be a part of making Danielle and Chad's wedding dreams come true!

Grain Exchange Transformation

Sarah + Ryan =  Wedding Day Bliss!!

Reception: The Grain Exchange

Month: January


It is pretty amazing to see a brides vision unfold between your eyes.  As a florist, it's euphoria when you exceed their expectations!!


As I think back on Sarah and Ryan Buck's wedding story, I remember Sarah standing in the front lobby, she was stunning in her lace wedding gown of St. Peter Paul church.  She beaming with excitement to see her groom.  Both were so excited to get their party started.


One of my favorite moments from the day was when Sarah and Ryan entered their reception before any of their guest to see their vision come to life.  


The towering centerpieces were filled with over 3 dozen ivory roses, gray brunia and 45 hydrangeas!  Birch branches extended out the top making each these stunning arrangement over 8 feet tall.  


The other guest tables had a lush arrangement filled with ivory hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus, gray brunia and succulents.  Hundreds of unique mercury votives filled the space with candle light.


The Bucks, carried their last name into all elements of their wedding, 
from the personal lighted logo that illuminated the grand reception area, 
to the deer antlers used in the floral decor in the entryway table. 


Even in the last minutes leading up to midnight, Sarah and Ryan guests filled the dance floor not wanting the night to end.  Thank you to Sarah and Ryan for letting us be a part in their wedding and sharing these beautiful photos with our readers.
