Although summer is the height of wedding season, more and more brides are choosing a spring wedding for their nuptials. If you’re wondering which flowers are best for your big day, here are a few suggestions: Ranunculus: These blooms are … Continue reading
This was such a fun wedding! Working with the bride, Mindi, was a treat and all of the special touches made the event top notch. Mindi chose the best of the best for her vendors including Essig Entertainment and Moxie Events. Her groom, Nick, was also very involved with the wedding planning which was sweet that it meant so much to him.
The wedding and the reception were held at Smith Oaks Ranch on Lorane Hwy in Eugene. Nick built the ceremony arbor himself and guests were seated on covered straw bales. The reception was in another cleared field area and the rectangular tables were a fresh alternative to the traditional rounds. The burlap table runners were hand-made as well as the burlap “Just Married” banner. We added simple milkglass budvases to each table, wine barrels and buffet tables. The overall look of the centerpieces was cohesive but each table had a different combination of flowers.
For Mindi’s bridal bouquet in shades of yellow and white I used “Alexandra” roses, “Butterscotch” roses, freesia, yellow-green cockscomb, hydrangea, stock, “Helga Piaget” garden roses and “Moonstruck” spray roses. Lots of jewels were added for plenty of sparkle.
These pictures were taken by Dandelions but if you want to see more of the wedding, check out Erika Nicole who photographed the event.
One of our sweet sales clerks, Sophie, got married to her beau, Todd, this August and the flowers were a perfect reflection of Sophie’s sweet, bubbly personality. They were married at a local church and then the reception was held at Sophie’s parent’s rural country home. Since Sophie is definitely a girlie-girl there were lots of pink touches and plenty of tulle!
Wedding consultant, Julianne, worked with Sophie to turn her fantasy wedding into reality. We ordered in a variety of rose that is actually called “Sophie”… HOW PERFECT! She also used nerine lilies, hydrangea, roses, freesia, cymbidium orchid blossoms and green “Athos” poms. The bridal bouquet was made even more stunning by adding bead details to loops of lily grass. This was reflected in the groom’s boutonniere as well.
Sophie did the reception centerpieces herself using birch branches, the green poms and lighted branches that really showed up once the sun went down. We are so happy for Sophie and Todd and were glad to help one of our own make her dream day come true!
Since Matt from Matt Emrich Photography provided us with all of these beautiful pictures from the Rager-Pappel wedding I decided to make it its own post! Chelsea and Jim are such a fun couple and Matt did an amazing job of capturing their personalities and spirit on their wedding day!
Chelsea worked her entire wedding around the polka dot theme she fell in love with. We used black/white polka dot ribbon for the stem wrap for all of the bouquets as well as the corsages & mini gerb boutonnieres. Her invitations featured hot pink gerbera daisies and we carried those throughout the entire wedding decoration.
The bridal bouquet was made of white Polar Star roses, Stargazer Lilies, and 3 shades of gerbera daisies. Chelsea wanted it “huge”…so we made it big. The bridesmaids carried bouquets made of different shades of pink gerbera daisies.
Here is Jim with his pink mini gerb boutonniere. I added black beaded wire to tie in with the polka dot theme. (The guys even wore hot pink shoe laces and the bridesmaids had polka dot shoe laces!!) Even the 2 dogs had flower collars!
Originally Chelsea planned on DIY reception centerpieces but the wind proved to be a bit of a challenge so I added the 3 tones of pink gerbera daisies to the clear rectangular vases with clear stones. These were put on mirrored tiles which enlarges the look of the centerpiece. The head table also held tiered vases with pink gerbs.
Another last minute addition was a few stems of flowers on the gazebo where the ceremony took place. It added a bit of color to the all-white gazebo.
We placed tall glass cylinders in the reception with pink and white arrangements that “floated” on top.

I love going to Pottery Barn. Mostly I go and dream of what my house might look like if it weren’t covered in toddler toys, a stroller parked in the corner and the ever present pile of laundry. Ok, maybe it still wouldn’t look like a Pottery Barn showroom…
We were actually at Pottery Barn because they invited us to be a part of their Bridal Event so we joined other local vendors and spent the evening chatting with brides about all of the fun new floral trends for the year.
Ranunculus was the star of the show at last night’s Bridal Event. It was displayed in the bridal bouquets and centerpieces but really got bride’s excited as a ring, corsage & boutonniere. Ranunculus is in its prime right now and is a great alternative to roses with its peony-like petals.
The exotic pincushion protea took best supporting actor because of its uniqueness. We made everyone touch it so they knew it was real!!
The newest issue of Eugene Weddding came out recently and our work from one of our weddings is featured!! Unfortunately the magazine didn’t let readers know we created the flowers but I know our bride, Kelsey, was delighted to see her bouquet featured.
This was such a fun wedding and took a team effort to pull it off. Julianne created the designs and Shirley transported them “up the river” to Eagle Rock Lodge on the McKenzie River. The beautiful sunny day allowed the rich orange tones to shine and photographer Bryan Rupp captured the day stunningly.
Here is a gallery with additional images by Bryan Rupp Photography (amazing photos) that shows this fun and joyous day. Kelsey incorporated the woodsy atmosphere into her bouquets and decorations but kept it decidedly upscale. Burnt orange calla lilies, “Coffee Break” roses, & sedum were the basis of all of the designs with manzanita branches throughout both the ceremony and reception.
The fun and unique sedums are the perfect accent for that eggplant/plum wedding color, which is the “It Color” of the season. This mixture of eggplant, champagne, green & white is fantastic… LOVE IT! These are our own photos but check out these vintage-themed photos from Imagery by Jordan who was on hand to capture the day.
This beautiful wedding took place for the bride, Michelle Krebs and her groom, Nick Nielson, at Domaine Meriwether Winery outside Veneta, Oregon. Congratulations to the bride & groom!
