Firehouse Fun! April and Ryan Teel tie the knot.

DSC_0651

April and Teel chose to do bright fun colors for their big day. Hot pinks, vibrant oranges, limey greens, touches of rich purples and even some buttery yellow hues. We filled rustic silver juleps with green mums, roses, and pink peonies and decided to add some bright green geranium for scent and color. We also, incorporated some rustic rot iron, and more tarnished silver to enhance that firehouse garden look. Overall, this wedding was such a fun event! We hope you enjoy the photos.

Hi All!

Frist off, we would like to wish everyone a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend!

Also, we wanted to share this adorable wedding with you all… sadly we did not take any photos of the best part… the collection of tea cup center pieces!! However, we will for sure share the professional photos when we get them.

Diamond became such a dear friend of ours through the process. She had such a fun eye and brought in oodles and oodles of cutsie inspirations. She died over anything china, pink, soft shades, lace, pearls… it was all her! One of the last weddings during the craziest weekend thus far in the season, it went off without a hitch and all was well in wedding world. We were so graciously invited to stay for dinner and were so obliged to sit and enjoy a meal together. Here are some photos of her day that we did capture… hope you all enjoy!

Best,

Chelsie

Showing the bride the proper way to hold her bouquet. It’s best to rest the bouquet on your hip so to tilt forward just a tad and show off all your lovely blooms!

Randi and Parker’s wedding at The Grand Island Mansion

DSC_0517

We met Randi a while ago, she was such a joy to have around the flower shop and we instantly bonded with her! We shared the same loves of eclectic style and collecting vintage vessels. She knew from the get go that she wanted red as her main color. We later added more textures and pops of fuchsia and oranges for accents. She also provided us with a HUGE collection of ruby red vessels to use for centerpieces (we thought we liked to collect)! Here are some of the shots we got on her big day, hope you all enjoy!

Best,

Horses, Horses, Horses…

DSC_0528
My favorite photo of the shoot! Photos shot by me.

When I hear horses, horses, horses, my mind initially goes to Meg Ryan in Sleepless in Seattle… singing on the way to the new in-laws house! However, I’m talking about a different horses. The Kentucky Derby is coming up, and we have been meeting with a certain bride who loves her horses!

Danielle is a bride we are working with late this summer, she is an absolute animal lover and a country girl through and through. We have been brainstorming for some cool way to incorporate her loves into her big day without being cheesy or over the top. Finally we decided a route to take… horses!

I’m sure everyone has seen the plastic animals painted gold or white for showers and other events, we wanted to play off of that look but leave it a little more rustic and kept true.

Mixing elements is one of our favorite things to do here at the shop, so we chose old trophies, show ribbons, and play horses to create a fun theme that is reminiscent of childhood. You could even add some glam to this look to create a Kentucky Derby-esque look! Have your guests wear big crazy hats and wah-lah… insta-fun!!

Anyway, we dressed up a rustic chicken coupe to look like a bookshelf and started playing with some other do-dads to create a style we feel will make your guests smile. So pull up a chair, grab an Arnold Palmer, bust out the stripy straws and stay a while!

Best,

Chelsie
