Memorial Union Wedding

Jenna + Jerry = Love at First Sight

A Stunning June Wedding



Jenna and Jerry's wedding was so much fun!

Jenna's bridal bouquet was timeless. Her bouquet was a handheld with stems and some texture that was wrapped with love knots. It included garden roses, mother of pearl roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, stock, and seeded eucalyptus in the colors of ivory and sandy. The bridesmaids had bouquets like Jenna's but smaller and wrapped in forest green. For Jerry, his boutonniere included ivory ranunculus and spray rose with seeded eucalyptus. All the groomsmen had one spray rose with greens. At the reception, we dressed the tables with loose greens and candles to tie the day together seamlessly. 

While the forecast called for rain, there was not a single drop! The couple's ceremony took place at the Allen Centennial Gardens on the UW Madison campus. They were surrounded by many friends and family as they tied the knot in the outdoor gardens. The couple's day continued on to their reception at Memorial Union on Lake Mendota. There, they took adorable couple photos on the dock and celebrated being Mr and Mrs with much music, dancing, and love flowing throughout the night.

We were so happy to have been part of this couple's special day! Congraulations to Jenna and Jerry, here's to many years of love and memories!

Ceremony - St. James

Reception -

Hubbard Park Lodge

There needs to be more winter weddings - you'll agree once you see Kelly and Gary's!

For Kelly's bridal bouquet, she choose a handheld with stems and some texture that included a lovely arrangement of roses, spray roses, white and silver pine, brunia, and mini pine cones (how cute!) in ivory, gray, and green. The two flower girls had bouquets like Kelly's but smaller while Gary's boutonniere included two ivory spray roses with pine cone and cedar. The flowers all tied perfectly into the time of year!

The couple said their "I do's" surrounded by family and friends at their church, St. James. They then continued their day to the reception at Hubbard Park Lodge, where much love, laughter, and dancing was present. Their entire day was captured beautifully by Jocelyn's Photography.

We were so happy to have been part of Kelly and Gary's winter wedding! Congrats to the lovely couple, here's to many years full of love and memories!

Samantha + Jim = FALLing in Love
A Beautiful September Wedding

Photographer: Mia S Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony: St. Boniface
Reception: Florian Park

Autumn has such stunning colors, especially when they're incorporated into a wedding!

The couple chose a bright arrangement of calla, leucadendron, roses, kangaroo paw, pepperberry, and smokebush in gorgeous deep reds, oranges, and tangerines that are the definition of fall! This arrangement was so colorful and fun, we were thrilled to make it!

Samantha and Jim's wedding last September started out at their church, St. Boniface in Germantown. There they said their "I do's" surrounded by friends and family. The day continued on to the reception at Florian Park, where the night was full of much love and laughter.

We were so excited to have been part of Samantha and Jim's special day (who could say no to those colors?!) and wish the couple many happy years to come. Congrats Samantha and Jim!

This blog is a throwback to the gorgeous October wedding of Debbie and Paul!

The flowers of Debbie and Paul's wedding were just breathtaking. The couple chose an arrangement of roses, spray roses, and hydrangeas with plenty of greens in ivory, nude, light pink, and blush. They also got adorable succulents for each of the tables!

The couple's wedding day started out with them reading the letters they wrote to each other as they got ready, talk about tear jerking! Their ceremony took place at the couple's church, St. James. They then moved on to the reception at the Silver Spring Country Club, which had amazing backdrops for jaw dropping photos. All of Debbie and Paul's big day was beautifully captured by Stephanie Leigh Photography.

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!

Rain on Your Wedding Day is a Day of Luck


Ceremony & Reception: Silver Spring Golf Club
Month: May

Even with the sky covered in gray and rain drops falling all day, Lindsey and Tom were in perfect spirits. Before the wedding, Lindsey and her bridesmaids grabbed white umbrellas to take some pre-wedding photos. Even in the rain, the girls were all beaming with excitement.


Lindsey and Tom were married on the rooftop of the Silver Spring Golf Club in the venue's new white covered tent. The bride and groom were framed with a soft baby's breath garland.


The bride and bridesmaids carried lush ivory and pink peonies, fragrant ivory garden roses, textures in dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus, and finished off with unique succulents.




The reception carried on into the Tremont Ballroom where the bride and her sister hand-painted each mason jar in aqua to match the theme of the wedding. A mix of fresh greens and baby's breath filled the jars, which were placed on a slab of local Wisconsin wood.


The two tiered cake covered in aqua and adorned with a lush peony complimented the entire room.



We wish Lindsey and Tom all the best and many days of sunshine!
