Summer Romance

Two shades of pink nestled amid white garden roses created the classic, romantic feel of these wedding flowers. The bride and groom knew exactly what they wanted, and chose raspberry calla lilies and soft pink orchids to create the perfect look. Tied together with lake blue ribbon, the flowers looked absolutely stunning for the early summer affair.

Built to Last

These are a handful of silk bouquets that I have made. Silk flowers are becoming a increasingly popular choice for the brides that want to make their wedding flowers last past the wedding day. Silk flowers are looking more and more realistic, and often blend in well with fresh flowers. Silk offers a great way to get the perfect bloom, even when that flower you have to have is out-of-season.

Classic Elegance

What could be more classic and elegant than a crisp white bouquet? The bride chose to pair white roses with pearl-centered stephanotis to complement her navy blue wedding color. Stephanotis is the quintessential wedding flower, adding delicate charm and a perfumed scent to the event.

A Western Affair

Using the same deep eggplant irises and fragrant choke cherry blossoms from my mom's garden, I went for a wildflower look to create a fun centerpiece for a western-themed family party. A vintage-looking stew can created a unique vase that tied the whole look together.

Stems' First Wedding

This is the bridal bouquet from the first solo wedding I worked on. The stunning December wedding was the perfect premier for Stems. The combination of the rich ruby red and deep black bacarra was set-off by vibrant goldenrod for a truly romantic winter look.

Garden Fresh

I made this bouquet with all fresh flowers out of the garden. I love the intrinsic spring elements and the contrast between the dark purple irises and white choke cherry blossoms.
