Bridal Editorial Shoot with Spotted:Stills Photography- Portland, Oregon

Where do I begin? This was a beautiful collaboration between several amazing wedding professionals in the Portland area.

I cannot get over how perfect this wedding gown is from Brides for a Cause. Did you see those gorgeous feather details on the bodice? Absolutely exquisite and worked perfect with the all white bridal bouquet I created with all locally grown {Oregon Grown/American Grown} flowers. Including white lilac and deutzia from Glenwood Farms, Peterkort freesia and blooming spirea.

I love designing lightweight, yet lush and full bouquets that look loaded but are practical and elegant for the bride to carry on her wedding day.

Lacey + David {Bohemian Portland Backyard Wedding}

Lacey was the sweetest and most laid back bride ever. The overall wedding was very casual and understated. She wanted a bouquet of wildflowers and a dainty floral crown to match.

I really enjoyed designing flowers for Lacey and David's wedding at their Portland home. 

Bridal bouquet consisted of all locally grown/American grown flowers including: Dahlias, nigella blooms and pods, seeded eucalyptus, craspedia, fewer few daisies, olive branch, scabiosa, gooseneck, thistle, snapdragon, yarrow and queen annes lace.

Winter- Valentine's Day Editorial Shoot

This beautiful editorial shoot took place during the craziest snow/ice storm here in the Portland metro area. It was extremely cold and snow was everywhere. 

The wonderful team of talented wedding professionals made it happen.

My favorite little surprise was the sweet baby pig named "Matilda" who took part in our shoot.

She was quite fond of the bridal bouquet and kept smelling and trying to eat it. Must have been those fragrant pepper berries.

This beautiful October wedding took place at East Fork Country Estate

Klara chose a fall color palette which included marsala, burgundy red, orange, bronze and gold. The overall floral look was lush, elegant and full of texture and locally grown blooms

Klara's bouquet was lush and full of all types of goodies: garden roses, dahlias, scabiosa, cox comb, parrot tulips, rose hips, eucalyptus, jasmine vine, pincushion protea, agonis, nandina, amaranthus.

Mommy and Me Session with floral crowns

Another gorgeous lifestyle mommy and me session by Spotted Stills Photography featuring our ever so popular floral crowns.

Christine's floral crown consisted of blush pink garden roses, white ranunculus, blush spray roses, foliage and textures. Abby had a tiny little elastic headband with single blush spray rose, berries, foliage and textures. I love creating the elastic headbands for the very little girls since they don't get bothered by them and they stay very well on their little heads. This style works great on the very young flower girls as well.

Thank you Jenn for the amazing photos. The Willow tree in the background is so soft and wispy and a perfect backdrop for this session.

Jenni + Daniel {East Fork Country Estate} Damascus, Oregon Wedding

I cant believe it been a year since Jenni and Daniel got married at East Fork Country Estate in Damascus, Oregon. They were absolutely the sweetest couple. I designed flowers for Jenni's sister a few years earlier so it was great to see everyone again. Jenny chose the softest shades of blush pink, peach and ivory as her primary color palette for her May wedding.

Being right in the midst of the local peony season, I could not resist myself to use such lush and fragrant flowers. Fluffy pale pink peonies were everywhere and they were stunning indeed!

Thank you to Anzhelika Gekkelman Photography for the beautiful images. This talented photographer also happens to be the grooms sister who has her own photography business in British Columbia, Canada.

Celebrating 10 Years of Marriage and Flowers

Its not often that I get out of my comfort zone and get in front of the camera, especially featuring my own floral designs. But to commemorate 10 years in the business as well as 10 years of being married to my wonderful husband; who is my rock and I could not do what I do with out his full support and encouragement. We decided to do a photo shoot with one of my favorite photographers Jenn from Spotted Stills Photography.

This was a perfect way to celebrate our marriage and floral design together in one. We are lucky to live right down the road from this nature park, a perfect spot for a mini photo shoot. This being Oregon, it started to sprinkle during our shoot; but we did not let the rain stop us.

A huge shout out to Janelle from The Prettiest You/Contoured Salon for fitting me in at the last minute for make up. Its always a pleasure to work with you.

I loved my dress by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls, it was very stylish and comfy.

My bouquet and floral crown featured some of my favorite blooms in mauve, blush pink, peach and gray tones. Blushing Bride Protea, Astrantia, Pieris, Spray Roses, Carnations and Dusty Miller from my own yard.

Thank you Spotted Stills Photography for the fabulous photos and here's to another 10 years!

Garden Time TV featured fresh flowers by Sophisticated Floral and wedding cakes by Kyra's Bakeshop

I teamed up with Kyra's Bakeshop {100% Gluten Free Bakery} to showcase how fresh flowers can be used to enhance a wedding cake design. 

Here is the Garden Time TV segment. {This was my very first time on camera so please excuse any fumbles.}

You can spot some beautiful locally grown blooms including lilac, freesia, ranunculus, succulents and even grape hyacinths and dusty miller right from my own yard. 

Thank you Peterkort Roses, Yaquina Nursery and Greenhouse and Oregon Flower Growers Association for growing those amazing blooms. 

I would like to give a big shout out to Jennifer at Face Body Beauty for doing my hair and make up for the show.

Jaydeep + Priya Wedding proposal at Lan Su Gardens, Portland Chinese Gardens

Jaydeep chose the most stunning setting to propose to his girlfriend Priya. 

I was honored to provide gorgeous flowers to mark this momentous occasion. Erica Ann Photography captured this special moment at Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland Oregon.

The groom to be, wore a stylish botanical pocket square that I created to coordinate with his suit and tie. It was a fun and unique alternative to a traditional boutonniere. 

Priya's favorite flower "the Peony" was featured along side garden roses, freesia, jasmine, camelia, ranunculus and foliage in this beautiful garden style set up; marking the spot where Jaydeep proposed. 

For more photos of this proposal head on over to Erica Ann Photography Blog.

Modern wrist corsages for weddings and special occasions

Forget about the old high school wrist corsages full of bling, tulle and spray paint. There are countless options when it comes to beautiful and modern wrist corsages.

I really enjoy designing wrist corsages; they are tiny little master pieces. Very intricate, detailed and full of unexpected textures. The sky is the limit when it comes to flowers to wear.
