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.
As Spring is a mere 30 days away, we think it is time to start embracing spring fever by decorating with bright, cheery flowers like tulips, daisies and daffodils! Here are a few fun ideas to spruce your home up for spring!
Another week was packed with weddings! We had a total of 5 weddings over the course of the week including a ceremony on both Wednesday and Friday and each wedding had its own, unique look. I made 2 trips out to the gorgeous Whisper N Oaks outside of Junction City where I was very impressed with the grounds. I had never been out there before and it far exceeded my expectations! Here are some shots from last weeks weddings…

This last weekend was FULL of weddings here in Eugene. We worked on the flowers for 4 weddings for Saturday, July 9. Congratulations to all of our couples who said “I do”. The colors and the flower choices were as varied as the couples but all were beautiful and fun to work on.
This wedding was full of strong colors including red and orange for the ceremony in Elmira, OR. The bridal bouquet incorporated dahlias, gerbera daisies, roses and alstromeria. There was also a beautiful arbor arrangement that Roseann created.
Rebecca loved the two tones of roses that created more texture in her wedding bouquet that also included pure white gerbera daisies. The bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the same bouquet.
Marie whipped up this beautiful bouquet for a last-minute bride who chose blue iris, white gerbera daisies (do you notice a theme for this weekends’ brides??) and other white flowers.
Leah wanted only gerbera daisies for her country wedding at Deep Woods Events in Elmira, Oregon. All of the corsages and boutonnieres were made with miniature gerbera daisies and the girls carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet which was solid gerbs.
This last weekend Kelly Boseke married Charles Prince in beautiful Vida, Oregon. Summer finally showed its face and gave gorgeous weather to this sweet couple. Kelly was wonderful to work with and her bright color choice definitely reflects her sweet and vivacious personality.
"Circus" Rose Bridal Bouquet
Kelly choice Circus roses for her main flower. Her wedding bouquet is strictly Circus roses and was a statement on its own. Corsages & boutonnieres were made with both orange roses and orange mini gerbera daisies. Her daughters (18 years old & 9 years old) wore more modern wrist corsages with wire bracelets.
