Button flowers

Button flowers can be with any color combos you can come up with~
So one of my MANY projects this year is theses cute "ECO" reduce, recycle, reuse wedding projects for my brides who want flowers but in a different way. As a designer I have to have many things up my sleeve, and this is one of them. Add some fresh greens, or herbs and there you have it button lapel flowers. SSOOO cute.

Church Doors

Nothing is more pretty then to be greeted at a wedding where the front doors are adorned with a wreath or monogram of the bridal couple. I have seen a huge trend in these I also made quite a few this past year. I really love the look of this moss monogrammed I used on last weekends wedding. It really fit well into the church at Starr Commonwealth the rustic charm and outdoor natural setting. This is really a great way to greet your guest. We also moved it to the reception for the guest to enjoy too.

Dave and Karin Married!

A smiling bride is a "good thing"



Dyed blue orchids for the head table
This was a special wedding for me Karin the bride is my husbands cousin, She was and is an awesome bride and person, so sweet and kind and never worried about her flowers.

I just love the quail feathers for fall~

Fall wedding flowers!

So much texture ~

Little details~
I love fall. Here in Michigan this time of year it's warm, the leaves are changing, and the smells out side are amazing. Here is a wedding bouquet the screams FALL. Using lot's of fall elements to create this master piece. Its a shame I will not be able to see the brides face when she gets this. Her mother is going to pick up all the flowers.  But I am hoping to get some great shot's from the pro.
