winter wedding

Burgudy blush and ivory wedding flowers

I loved creating this classic style hand-tied bridal bouquet for Susan.

Dark burgundy and ivory is a tough color palette from a design perspective. It can easily go wrong and look polka dotted. So I love incorporating a touch of blush to bridge the color gap and have a smoother transition.

Susan’s bouquet included dark burgundy baccara roses, black calla lilies, burgundy hypericum berries, italian ruscus foliage, ivory garden roses, blush pink garden spray roses, burgundy anemone and my favorite -blooming jasmine vine.

Sara and Dana Snowy Bridal Session at Mt Hood with Spotted Stills

Spotted Stills Photography once again blew me away with this stunning winter session at Mt Hood, OR.

This has been a very snowy season so far and those who brave the weather get rewarded with some gorgeous images.

Who says Winter flowers have to be primarily red or white? Nope, incorporate some blush in with the winter foliage, pinecones and flocked branches and you have a perfect winter design.

Katie + Torsten November Wedding at McMenamins -Kennedy School

This beautiful November wedding at McMenamins Kennedy School has got to be one of my absolute favorites from 2016 wedding season.

I love it when the bride chooses a bold color palette and lets me design the rest. I enjoyed selecting the dark moody tones with a lot of textural elements.

To me floral design is like painting, the various flowers and textures that I choose are perfectly blended together to create a beautiful masterpieces or in this case Katie's stunning bridal bouquet.

A cold November wedding outside in Portland, Oregon cannot be done without the cozy blankets the couple has provided for the guest during ceremony.  So glad the rain held off and we got some beautiful outdoor photos by Elissa Deline Photography.

What Katie had to say:

" The flowers were amazing and we could not have been happier. I would use you again in a heartbeat and will tell everyone I know...We got so many compliments on the flowers. "

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.

Spotted Stills also created this gorgeous video clip.

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.
