Lisa and Mark at Lewis & Clark Catering

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post about some of our weddings due to issues I was having with our site. Ugh. But now that it is resolved I am back to highlighting some incredible couples and their joyous nuptials!

I was honored to create the floral designs for Lisa and Mark back in March at Lewis and Clark Catering here in Eugene. I get to gab with Lisa every 6-8 weeks since she is my hairstylist so it was fun to hear all about the wedding planning from the time of engagement up until THE DAY. Lisa and Mark are a laid-back and fun couple and wanted their wedding to feel intimate and sophisticated without being too hoighty-toity (is that a real word?) or stuffy.

The day was perfect and it even managed to stay dry which is a small miracle for a March wedding in Eugene, OR. It rains a lot here. The colors were simple with a black and white theme and a punch of turquoise to add a little life. The bride was beautiful, the wedding was sweet and the reception (so I heard) was fun, fun, fun! These gorgeous images were captured by MJ’s Photography here in Eugene- thank you for sharing! If you haven’t met Michelle of MJ’s Photography…she’s awesome. Fun, professional and talented. Now to the wedding!

Lisa’s bouquet was an array of white garden roses, clematis, ranunculus, sweet peas, jasmine buds, piers japonica and trailing greenery with a sheer, ruffled ribbon.

Instead of a traditional arch, Lisa wanted something more elegant and modern to designate the ceremony area. Sleek white pillars held tall flower arrangements of white blooms including snapdragons, hydrangea, trailing clematis and white Tibet roses. Post-ceremony they were transferred indoors to decorate the reception area.

Each reception centerpiece differed slightly but all were white flowers with either black or white rocks in the bottom or square vases. The couple’s sweetheart table flowers was a trio of vases including the white anemones with black centers that Lisa loved.

Light Pink Wedding

We often get requests from brides for peonies throughout the year. Unfortunately, peonies have a short growing season locally. The season is extended slightly through farms that grow peonies in Alaska and South America. So for the bride who wants a peony look but can’t afford the $15-$30 a stem price of off-season peonies, garden roses provide an excellent alternative.

This wedding had a very pink theme! The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets were pink and white and the flower girls carried sweet pink pomanders. Helga Piaget garden roses, Mariatheresa garden spray roses and blush pink ranunculus created a soft pink look. The bridal bouquet was collared with silver dusty miller. and had locket pictures attached to the stem wrap. Very pretty and feminine!

An orange and pink bridal bouquet for a “Hawaiian” theme wedding

Although it was a Hawaiian themed wedding, the bride wanted more traditional flowers so we brought in white freesia that were reminiscent of plumeria

These unique tan and pink orchids brought a touch of tropical

The starting bouquet created in shades of green including hydrangea, green trick carnations, sedum, rosemary, poppy pods, green chrysanthemums, ti leaves and a moss orb.

The light green Mega Beaded wire intertwined in this bouquet added a touch of modernity for the bride who likes a little something different

Adding in more natural elements like the curly willow, eucalyptus pods and seed pods turned the green bouquet into a natural and earthy statement.

Three shades of carnations combined to make this bridesmaid’s bouquet. Grouping the colors together keeps it from looking like polka-dots

A great way to differentiate a bridal or maid of honor bouquet is to add a touch of glam with jewels or crystals

I love this Diamond Wrap that can be used on a stem wrap, around vases or applied to corsages & boutonnieres

A traditional combination of roses and hydrangea get an natural makeover with grasses and pods

Adding interesting foliage keeps these hydrangeas from looking to rounded for this bride who wanted a looser, more natural feel
