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!!

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!
