September 20th: Tim & Gina

This was an AWESOME event! Gina was very open to ideas & really let me run with the flowers for her wedding! Really a dream client to work with!
The bridal bouquet was a vibrant mixture of gerber daisies, roses, dahlias, spider mums, hypericum berries, safflower, & hydrangea.
The bridesmaids each carried a different type of flower, all in shades of hot pink. Bouquets composed of roses, gerber daisies, & hydrangea.
This is where I had the most fun! The tables at the reception were long, banquet tables that were lined up in 16 foot sections. Each table was a mix & match ensemble of assorted flowers & vases. All of the vases were decorated with some sort of ribbon treatment, some personalized with monograms provided by the bride.
We used over 240 vases, 120 votive cups, & hundreds of yards of ribbon! I hope everyone really appreciated not only the flowers themselves, but the attention to detail that went in to each & every arrangement!
The buffets were decorated with fabulous displays of vases filled with Crenshaw watermelons topped with colorful bouquets of Bells of Ireland, roses, spider mums, gerber daisies, & hypericum berries.
I took tons of pictures of the reception! I posted my favorites here, but if you want to see the rest, visit my Picasa album at:
There are close ups of some of the vases & their ribbon treatments & shots of the room as a whole. Amazing to see all of those vases!
Also, the bride is selling her runners if anyone is interested. She has close to 60 she said! You can contact me & I will get you her info.

Memory Garland. Great way to pay respect to loved ones no longer with us into your ceremony.

The flower girls carried this down aisle & placed on altar.
Cake wasn't quite done yet! I had to hurry back to shop so the cake lady was going to put ribbon around the base of each tier when I was done. I thought it still looked pretty! How can't it with the great fall colors!
The ceremony was held at Stilwell United Methodist Church in Stilwell, KS. The reception was at Lodge of Ironwoods in Leawood, KS.
