Michigan winter weddings

Wedding vows renewed after 50 years

 This couple have been dear friends of mine for over 23 years. Their youngest daughter Missy is my good friend. They bride and groom were married 50 years ago at the pastors home in Hastings Michigan. They never had a real wedding. So the kids decided it was time. I got to be part of this amazing event and was a guest at the wedding too. I was thrilled to design this heart felt keep sake all fabric wedding bouquet for the bride. Here are some of their photos, they are so lovely.

Winter wedding December 1, 2012

Welcome to December! Here is a cute winter wedding I did today. My bride Erica wanted to have a winter theme wedding with a dusting of snow on the ground. Well it was about 50 degrees and NO snow. But it put no damper on her day. She was so in love with her flowers. I did Ericka's mothers 2nd wedding about 7 years ago. She was just a teenager, Now she is all grown up and married. BOY am I old..

Paper Flowers

Yes I have to admit I love paper flowers. I think they are awesome and if done right can be made into a very stunning bridal bouquet. My bride this weekend is a music major and this was just her style. She love it too. I must say the flowers take a lot of time and in wedidng season I dont think I would be able to pull it off. But just look at this wonderful creation. 
 My post are going to be far between weddings are almost at a stop  for me. But 2013 is going to be HUGE. I do have some fun  stuff to still for from this past season. Hugs..Tracy

Lapel flowers

Sometimes  I really step out of the box and make something way cool (well most of my stuff is cool) But I love a challenge  and I saw the cute way people were using scrabble pieces. It just so  happened a photo friend wanted it for a photo shoot.. It looks GREAT here it is Thanks http://carriemilesphotography.com/
 This is just adorable, I will be designing  the flowers for this wedding too.
