Photographer: JB Wedding Photography

Florist: Bank of Flowers

Ceremony/Reception: The Bowery Barn


Anne and Joseph's wedding was a picture perfect day!

For Anne's bouquet, she chose a handheld with stems and texture. It included hydrangea, peonies, Viking daises, monte casino aster, stock, solidago, roses, seeded eucalyptus, and greens in the colors of cream, yellow, and green with a light blue accent. The bouquet was finished off with a wrap in burlap with lace overlay. For Joseph's boutonniere, he had two ivory spray roses with solidago, white monte casino aster, blue delphinium, yellow Viking mum, and greens wrapped in brown twine.

Both their ceremony and reception took place at The Bowery Barn in Ashippun, Wisconsin. At the ceremony, the couple said their "I do's" surrounded by their many friends and family. Their day continued on to their reception, where much love, laughter, and music flowed. All of this was captured beautifully by JB Wedding Photography.

We were so happy to have been part of this couple's special day! Congrats Anne and Joseph, we wish you many years of love and happiness!

Who doesn't love a stunning Fall wedding? Sara and Matt's wedding is a picture perfect example!

The couple chose gorgeous flowers that screamed fall! Sara's bouquet was a handheld with long stems and some texture including sunflowers, dahlia, antique hydrangea, seeded euc, wheat, and other mixed greens in red, yellow, and green accent. The bridesmaids had similar bouquets with handles wrapped in black. The groom and groomsmen had boutonnieres of a burgundy flat mum with solidago, wheat, and greens!

Sara and Matt's wedding took place at the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, with the ceremony held outside and the reception inside. This venue was perfect for jaw dropping backdrops for all the beautifully captured photos taken by Valo Photography, as well give off the early Fall vibes the couple was aiming for!

Overall, Sara and Matt's wedding was full of love, laughter, and happiness. We are so thankful to have been part of their special day!

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 :)
