Abby and Mike’s wedding was definitely one we will never forget!

When Abby walked in she immediately stole the show with her jaw-dropping bouquet. White ranunculas and peonies were paired flawlessly with the greenery brunia, broad leaf dusty miller, snow berries, gunni eucalyptus, cedar, and white pine. Her bouquet was tied together with lace from her mother’s wedding bouquet from years ago. Abby’s bridesmaids had smaller, very similar bouquets to hers but with small splashes of playa blanca roses. And of course, boutonnieres! Mike’s boutonniere was an ivory ranuc with cedar, white pine, and mini pine cones all wrapped with twine. Each groomsman boutonniere was made unique from one another but all consisted of cedar, white pine, and a mini pine cone.

The ceremony was preformed at the Hales Corner Church. The alter had a large arrangement made mostly with white hydrangeas, white roses, and lots of textured greenery. The aisle was lined with pine and greens with a satin bow hanging from the pews. After the ceremony, everyone moved over to the reception which was held at The Best Place in Milwaukee. The centerpieces were held in birch boxes with a variety of flowers and greenery inside to match the bouquets of Abby and the bridesmaids.

We love you Abby and wish you and Mike nothing but years of happiness!

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!

Richfield Wedding

Jenna + Paul = Perfect

An outstanding August wedding



Jenna and Paul’s wedding was perfectly unique!

Jenna’s handheld bouquet was unforgettable. Her bouquet was organic and full of texture with a nude and off white palette with a splash of wine. It had burgundy dahlias, white hydrangeas, hanging amaranthus, and mother of pearl roses. Pairing those flowers with the greens of seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and broad leaf dusty miller made the bouquet come to life! The bridesmaids got a very similar smaller version of Jenna’s bouquet but with more hints of blush thrown in. For Paul’s boutonniere he had a single white rose with a mix of greens perfectly pulled together with a twine wrap. All the groomsmen and Jenna’s dad had a boutonniere that had matching greens with Paul’s. All of the bouquets and boutonnieres worked together effortlessly!

The reception, which was held at Terrace 167, had flowers flowing from every table. With Jenna and Paul’s wedding, they made everything perfectly unique to their personalities. All of the center pieces from the tables were flowers held in a variation of different bottles giving the venue and rustic and simplistic feel. There was a variation of sizes of bottles giving the center pieces all different heights. All the Feels Photography captured the story of their wedding beautifully!

We wish Jenna and Paul years of happiness and love. We are always happy to help contribute to a couple’s special day!
