Drew and Lynettes Anniversary

Drew and Lynette had a party to celebrate their third anniversary. Lynette's inspiration for the party came from Italy. She is inspired by the shapes, colors, and intricate textures from 1950's Italian styles. Lynette made her dress, isn't it gorgeous? Lynette made all the food herself too, it was a perfect Italian picnic.

Thanks for letting me be a part of this Drew and Lynette, happy three years of marriage!

Spanish lace

Way back this spring I made some flowers for a shoot that Megan of Easy Dreamer Photography styled. She put together the shoot taking inspiration from her love for monarch butterflies and Spain. This bouquet had lots of geranium, reminiscent of the pots of geraniums down alleys in spanish neighborhoods. Also in this bouquet were coral charm peonies, poppies, dinner plate dahlia, bleeding heart, jasmine vine, and foxglove. I made that little headband with flowers on it.

Fall is my favorite, but I really do love the delicate flowers spring has to offer too. It is nice to see them in these pictures and remember them. I wish I could have bleeding hearts year round. I would grow them in my house if I could. Can you imagine having them dangling from a bookshelf or windowsill?

Thanks to Megan for the pretty photos, and her special attention to taking detail shots of the flowers. Darcie of Pink peach cakes made that cake that smelled so good I wanted to lick the frosting off of it. Pretty model too, I love the way she photographs. This shoot was featured on postcards and pretties.

Sometimes I forget to post things on the blog because I tweet them. Back in September I opened up the shop for the 9th&9th street festival. It was so fun to meet people! I sold flower bunches and a few other things, here is a taste. I am going to be accepting orders and opening the shop for thanksgiving, so stay tuned!

amber and greg's flowers

Here are a few rather pathetic attempts to photograph my flowers as I am loading/unloading them on the rainiest day I have yet to do flowers in. Whites with bits or deep purple and navy blue again, this time I used some dark begonia leaves and foraged fall berries. Amber and greg were a lot of fun to work with, I quite liked them. Greg is a tattoo artist who is passionate about orchids, amber is the daughter of a minister. Greg's dad was wearing suspenders with flames on them....under his suit jacket of course. All of the boutonnieres and corsages were made of different orchids, there were a few crazy varieties in there that looked like they might spit venom.

Amy and Will's flowers

Amy and Will are such a sweet couple. They are kind and creative, I loved working with them. They had a gorgeous wedding at Log Haven in the first week of September, complete with dresses for the ladies from Alta Moda and Lily & Iris, and a night of dancing to the gatsbys-who I highly recommend if you are looking for a wedding band. All of these bright and cheerful photos by Amy Lashelle.
