On a lovely day in August, Brianna and John got married at Pineridge Hollow. I love working on weddings out there, because the light airy feel of the reception tent is so easy to bring flowers into! It works great with lots of different colour palettes, and the tent is really adaptable to several different aesthetic styles. I also happen to love a good soft blush and cream palette in this all-white setting. Brianna was actually the first bride to meet with me after launching Stone House Creative, and also the first bride to book with me! Thank you so much for trusting me with your blooms!
And another huge thank you to Hailey Funk Photography, who always takes such beautiful pictures of my blooms.
I absolutely LOVE lilacs, and when they are in bloom, man! Do I ever have to capitalize on them! These were picked from my lovely friend's yard, and I mixed them with some apple blossoms and other things I found growing around the neighbourhood. It smelled lovely, and was just the sweetest addition to Teighan and Adam's engagement session with Austin Kylie Photography!
Studly flowers…sort of an oxymoron, right? Here's the thing: boutonnieres can be pretty dated and boring (and corsages as well, though the awfulness that some corsages can be is a whole other topic). I really hate boring boutonnieres. Why should they be anything other than awesome? Detailed boutonnieres are proof that even the smallest of details should be attended to in a special manner. I like to pull together different elements out of the bouquets to dress up a boutonniere. Oh, and one last thing - just like a tie finishes a man's look, so a touch of ribbon finishes up a boutonniere nicely. I'm sure you'll agree!
