Our first wedding of 2016 was for the darling couple, Colleen and Eddie. I loved working with her cheerful color palette and of course, so happy to have peonies, ranuculus, hyacinth and other spring favorites to use in our designs. Thanks to Kim Ho of You're Invited for including us and The Grays Photography for sharing these photos.
Here are some photos from our IndieWed booth at The Bauer by Jana Marie Photography. I haven't done a bridal fair since I very first started almost 14 years ago. It was one of those big, overwhelming ones at a trade center and though it was good to get my name out there, it just really wasn't my thing. I've been lucky to work from referrals by brides and planners, so I hadn't been interested in participating in another one until I heard about IndieWed. It was a small but well curated bridal fair at an actual venue and it had such a great vibe! All of the vendors really meshed well and it was a great turnout!
I had a small space and really wanted to appeal to different styles of brides, so I decided to show four options: bright and modern, organic and local (incorporating local makers Convivial Productions ceramics and Axel reclaimed wood tray), classic blush and gold and traditional blue and white with silver accents.
I also wanted to try something different from a standard book portfolio, so I ordered a ton of square prints, backed them with fun paper and hung them from a mixed greenery wreath. It turned out great and drew brides into my booth:)
We were lucky to be right next to Jana Marie Photography and added some bright pops of color and fun greenery to her booth. Love her energy and kind spirit, it shows through in her photos and we have been lucky to work with her on a few weddings this past year!
Ultrapom and West Elm created a fun "Stellar Lounge" for guests to hang out in and enjoy delicious treats from vendors like Dolce Bakery and Moxie Catering. Botanica created the florals for the head table, layout by Chappelow Events and paper goods from Sugarbean and Little Yellow Leaf. It really shows that the details, like dishes/flatware/glasses/linens/placecards, all can make a huge difference in how a tabletop comes together to create a cohesive style!
Much thanks to Ultrapom and Hello Bride for coordinating such a unique wedding fair. Can't wait to see how it grows next year!
This was my first wedding at The Stanley Aspen Room and I was so delighted! The bride's classic palette of whites, grays and silver mercury glass was stunning against the exposed brick walls and dark wood accents. Another great family to work with and love these pretty photos from Kristen Clayville!
Whitney and Lucas had the most perfect fall day to celebrate with family and friends at the new Weston Red Barn Farm-70 degrees and sunny on November 1st! Whitney chose a classic palette of white and gray with lots of textural greenery. We created loose, hand-tied bouquets of garden roses, orlaya, ranuculus, scabiosa and ferns. Bouquets and boutonnieres were wrapped in a pale gray velvet ribbon. We hung a wood frame covered in mixed greenery-silver dollar euc, olive branches, and ferns over the ceremony area and after, the head table was placed underneath. Guests moved to the patio for cocktail hour while the room was flipped-guests enjoyed dinner at long farm tables topped with ivory linens, gray napkins and mixed greenery garlands with rose gold and mercury glass candles.

I know I say this a lot, but such a sweet couple/family to work with! Two stunning venues as a backdrop for the flowers: Redemptorist for the ceremony and The Hilton President for the reception.
This sweet bride's classic white bouquet full of peonies, roses, hydrangea, ranuculus, freesia and queen ann's lace along with her gorgeous dress and veil was perfection! And loved all of the bright, cheery colors accented with hints of gold and polka dots from this wedding last summer was so much fun!

Even though spring is here, we're going to flash back to this fabulous New Years Eve wedding of Ashley & Chris! Ashley wanted shades of ivory and blush with accents of wintergreens, berries, sticks and gold to pull it all together. We created a 24 foot long hanging piece covered in curly willow, preserved branches and greenery with hanging candle holders. This hung above the ceremony area and during the reception, the head table was placed underneath. Three different styles of centerpieces all included gold and lots of candle light.
What a fun way to ring in the New Year!
Getting ready for our pop-up shop next week and put together a little board of the details! Fun enclosure cards, bakers twine & polka dot craft paper to wrap hand-tied bouquets and new Botanica labels. Don't forget to pre-order for best selection!
