Charlene + Jordan-August 6, 2017

This color palette was a good one this summer!  Bright, with soft and a little bold.  The mix of gorgeous local dahlias and roses came in the perfect shades of coral, peach and blush.  Soft greens and dusty miller peeked throughout and flowed at the bottom of the bouquets.  The ceremony was in the lower grove at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture.  It was a hot and gorgeous day.  There were forest fires in Canada which sent the smoke to our area and make the sky turn hazy and pink.  It made for some interesting pictures.  The decor was simple since the grove is already so pretty.  Eucalyptus with garden roses were hung on the chairs.  The centerpieces had classy and geometric elements to them.  Submerged white orchids were on a few of the tables while the others had different geometric vases with candles and flowers.  Love how these turned out.  Such a gorgeous day for a fun couple!!!

I snapped this shot of the ceremony chair decor.  That haze from all the forest fires made for an interesting sky!

Schultz|Miller Open House 2017

I was so excited to do the flowers for the Schultz|Miller open house again.  They are so easy going and love to use succulents...and I sure love succulents!   The design elements Megan with Prive` came up with were perfect for this event.  For main sitting, she picked out wood farm tables from Seattle Farm Tables.  The cinder block arrangements with lots of textured greenery and succulents looked so great with the classic cedar tables.  The cocktail tables had my favorite linen from CORT on it...great texture and the perfect shade of gray.  Ferns and succulents in taller zinc containers looked so awesome with that pop of green on the different grays of the metal and that amazing linen.  Love how the entry arrangement had a mix of flowers and greenery with soft ferns.  I think my new favorite vessels are cinder blocks!  Cheers to another fantastic open house with this great company.

Shannon + Casey-August 12, 2017

Weddings at a private residence always have such a different vibe to them.  There is different stress that goes into setting up, but it always feels like the families are just ready to have a great time.  I don't think I have ever felt so much help from the couple's family and friends as I did with Shannon & Casey's.  It was a gorgeous summer day and even if it wasn't, that view would have made up for it.  This house on Camano Island was the groom's family home and it was gorgeous.  Right on the water, lush green grass with a huge tent set up so their guests could sit together and enjoy their surroundings.  Everyone was working on something.  Family members arranging the centerpieces, getting the bar set up, and groomsmen putting the chairs out.  It was fun to see so much love and attention go into something for a great couple and be set up so smoothly with a great coordinator like Katy at Seattle Stunning Events.  Shannon had asked me to design the bouquets for her bridesmaids and junior bridesmaids as well as her bouquet.  I also designed the flowers for an arch that Casey had made.  This is one of my favorite arches this season.  One side, full, lush and flowing in the wind.  With the water as a gorgeous backdrop it just all looked so amazing!  Such a beautiful day for this couple to share with their friends and family and to have it in such a special place to them.
