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!

They chose a bright arrangement of flowers which included numerous roses in different colors and sizes as well as succulents and greenery. Who could say no to that?

April showers bring May flowers and the flowers at Christa and Al's wedding were bright, cheery, and perfect for the couple's special day!

The love-struck couple wed in their family church in Wauwatosa, with friends and family coming from all over to be in attendance for Christa and Al's special day. Afterwards, they took a quick stop by the lake to get a few pictures, the city of Milwaukee filling the background.

Christa and Al's wedding day continued onto their reception, which took place in the Miller Room. The venue was an amazing choice, as it had breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. Their was much dancing, laughter, and of course love flowing at Christa and Al's wedding.

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.

Turner Hall Ballroom

Elizabeth + Brian = Love

Ceremony and Reception: Turner Hall
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Photographer: Gloss Photography Studios
Month: August

What better place to get married than the heart of it all in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Liz and Brian planned their dream wedding so their guests could experience the urban beauty of our great city at the historical Turner Hall. Turner Hall Ballroom is a two story 7,000 square foot space that was originally used by German Immigrants of Milwaukee for weekly concerts, dances and theatrical performances.   This gem of a space was fully renovated in the early 2000 after nearly being vacant for 70 years.  Congratulations Elizabeth and Brian!

Lush Summer Designs

It's halfway through the summer and here at Bank of Memories & Flowers, we've been busy designing and delivering the best and most beautiful blooms in town!!  We see a lot of our customers gravitating towards sunflowers, brightly colored gerbera daisies, and green hydrangeas.  




Summer is all about bright pops of color and these arrangements deliver just that. I love designs that feel like they are straight from the garden. Think dramatic and versatile, the fresh picked look is very popular and some of my personal favorites include green ball dianthus, fuchsia zinnias and orange cabbage roses. 



Compact arrangements seem to be the most popular style that we see at the shop, and they are so much fun to design.  When ordering, we love it when you leave the design up to us.  These types of unique arrangements seem to turn out the best.  This way we can work with some fun color combinations and different foliage, some that we can even submerge into the vases for a different design. 



I hope that you enjoy some of my personal favorite designs.  Wishing everyone a safe and fun summer!

Rustic Love

Megan & Scott


Ceremony: Holy Cross Church, Menomonee Falls, WI
Reception: Rustic Manor, Delafield
Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers
Baker: Sweet Perfections
Month: September


After a lovely ceremony at our local Holy Cross Church, Megan & Scott headed to the barn for a rustic reception!


 Megan chose the elegance of a simple white bouquet comprised of hydrangeas, roses, freesia, and stock, wrapped in white satin ribbon and accented with pearls.


 Fall jewel tones were the perfect choice for the bridesmaids bouquets.  Each bouquet was designed in a monochromatic style with an assortment of flowers including roses, gerbera daisies, sunflowers, alstromeria, and stock.  This gave each bouquet a simple, but charming style.



 The reception flowers added to the rustic, yet charming feel with clusters of vintage bottles filled with bright blossoms and slender vases filled with birch branches and gerbera daisies.


 The rustic charm continues with a blossom-covered cake and the bride and groom's initials set up with bright flowers as an accent.  You can just feel the rustic love fill the crisp fall air on Megan and Scott's special day!  Congratulations from everyone here at Bank of Memories & Flowers!

Samantha + Anthony = Beautiful Fall Wedding


Ceremony: St. James Catholic Church in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Reception: Silver Spring Country Club in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
Month: October


I had the pleasure of servicing Samantha and Anthony's wedding last month at St. James's historic chapel located in Menomonee Falls. The day could not have been more picture perfect for the fall season and the flowers were a beautiful echo to the fall colored leaves on the trees.

 

For Samantha's bouquet, we blended red, orange and yellow gerbera daisies wrapped in an ivory satin ribbon to match her beautiful gown.  For an added sparkle, we added rhinestones to the centers of the flowers. The girls carried a lush bouquet of all roses in the same colors wrapped in royal blue ribbon to complement their dresses.

 

As Samantha walked down the aisle, she passed lovely mason jars filled with white hydrangeas - just the perfect touch!


Other than flowers, the cake is always one of my favorite details in a wedding. Everyone loved their trendy, ribbon inspired wedding cake and we were thrilled to add our flowers for a pop of color in between the layers.

The Bank of Memories & Flowers team wishes Samantha and Anthony many congratulations and lots of happiness!!!

Summer Flowers!

If there were ever a time to be excited about flowers, it's now!  Summer is in full swing and blooms are everywhere you look when outdoors -- so why not bring them indoors?! In the spirit of the season, we here at Bank of Memories & Flowers have put together just a few of our favorite designs we made this past week:

 This one is a relatively simple arrangement but contains an amazing blend of oranges and yellows with peach-colored dahlias, brilliant yellow and orange gerbera daisies, all tied together with cheerful yellow roses and subtle alstroemeria.

Subtly unique, the above arrangement contains small homegrown tangerines as well as looped bear grass within the vase itself. The bouquet is packed full of summer colors: fun lime green hydrangeas and hypericum berries, fuschia roses and daisies, and a peachy orange dahlia. So fun! 

For the garden lover, this "watering can" arrangement is as beautiful as it is quirky. It is impossible not to smile with the bright and cheerful yellows and oranges adorned with a whimsical monarch butterfly.

Don't have time to garden and add bloom to your outdoor space? We've got you covered :)
