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!

Kendall + Robert = Wedded Bliss

Ceremony Location: Our Savior Lutheran Church, Hartland
Reception: Delafield Hotel, Delafield
Florist: Bank of Flowers, Pewaukee
Month: July

I met with Kendall a few short months before her July 30th wedding, and we hit it off immediately.  Her bubbly personality is infectious and I wanted to make her flowers as fun as she is.  

Kendall chose peach, white and grey as her color palette.  We combined hydrangeas, astilbe, bouvardia, white oriental lilies, garden roses, godetia, and peach gerbera daisies with grey brunia and dusty miller to fulfill her floral wishes.  Kendall added personality to her wedding by using a personalized burlap aisle runner for the ceremony and having their huskies walk the couple down the aisle after saying "I do".  Her "something blue" was a small heart shaped piece of her father's shirt added to her wedding dress.  

At their reception at the Delafield Hotel, the aisle flowers from the ceremony were repurposed to be used on the cocktail tables.  Tall and short floral arrangements were interspersed throughout the reception tables.  At the end of the night, the couple walked through a gauntlet of well wishers waving lit sparklers.  So much fun!!

I sometimes wish weddings happened more than once just so I can work with the same people over and over again.  Kendall and Robert were be on the top of the list!
We wish them a wonderful, fun happy wedded life together!

Daisy Daydreams Turn Into Love!!!

Katrine & Ben
Ceremony: Christ Lutheran Church
Reception: Legend at Bristlecone
Month: June
Florist: Bank of Memories & Flowers
Photographer: Spinnaker Photography
Cake: Sweet Perfections


I remember being a child, and plucking daisy petals from a blossom..."He loves me, he loves me not..."  So, the daisy can also be a floral symbol of love and affection, not just the red rose.


Katrine and Ben chose Gerbera Daisies as the focal flower for their special day!   They can be found in the bridal bouquets, the boutonnieres were mini-gerberas, the isle flowers were cute gerbera blossoms in hanging vases, and the centerpieces came alive with fun, vibrant colors of gerbera daisies as well!


The bridal bouquets were a lovely combination of gerberas, peonies, roses, spray roses, stock, and rice flower in shades of peach.  They really popped against the coral dresses!


The boutonnieres were mini-gerbera blossoms in a soft peach with bear grass accents.


For their reception decor, Katrine and Ben chose three styles of centerpieces to fill the room, which gave a fun, whimsy feel and a lot of variety to a large space.   The first style was a simple rectangle glass vase filled with river rocks, and accented with bright gerbera blossoms and a candle floating.


The second style was a round low bowl with three bright floating blossoms, and to make it pop, three tiered glass stemmed votives with floating candles all around to give a warm glow at night.


The third style was a long slender glass vase filled with gerbera blossoms and teal decor wire under water, with a floating candle to top it off.


The cake was also adorned with shades of peach gerberas, roses, and rice flower to match the decor.


It was a pleasure to service your wedding and be a part of your special day Katrine and Ben!

North Hills Vintage

Amanda & Chad

Month: September
Ceremony & Reception: North Hills Country Club, Menomonee Falls, Wi
Flowers: Bank of Memories & Flowers

Amanda & Chad tied the knot at North Hills Country Club, just down the road from our shop in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.  A little lace, burlap, and some soft blossoms was all it took to transform a simple brick patio into a charming vintage setting just perfect for a wedding.


Mason jars and vintage bottles filled with hydrangeas, soft peach stock, and charming little spray roses were used to give this wedding its vintage feel.  They adorned the chairs down the isle and hung from the gazebo.


The same feel was used inside for the dinner tables, using a cluster of jars and bottles with burlap tags for the table numbers.  The floral clusters were set on vintage-looking silver serving trays, which were sprinkled with white rose petals.  All of these elements came together to create a simple, elegant feel.


Simple, soft blossoms were also used to adorn the cake, which was placed on a vintage silver cake stand, adding to the vintage decor.


Congratulations Amanda & Chad!  It was a pleasure to be your personal florist and decorator for your special day!

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 :)
