I love neutral colors, in fact my entire house revolves around soft greens, cream, peaceful blue grey, khaki and greys. But I always jump at the chance to create something with color, especially a complex bohemian color palette with De Vasco Daughters! Those exciting bold reds and corals with pops of yellow and orange-pink really speak to me and they are perfect for a fun and relaxed event like this afternoon bridal shower outside of Minneapolis Minnesota in Bloomington in August. Accents of moss, gold and bronze metals and eclectic table settings styled by twin cities wedding and event planner De Vasco Daughters welcomed the guests to this intimate outdoor event. A floral crown was worn by KP the bride, a moss and flower chair was a welcoming focal piece as guests arrived at the party and a bohemian floral teepee created the perfect place for pictures.

Catherine and Quinn chose The Bachelor Farmer in Minneapolis for it’s intimate and eclectic style. Originally we had planned on neutral flowers in the space but in the end Catherine decided to settle on happy and colorful pops of spring color. We kept the wedding ceremony backdrop floral installation romantic whites and creams for a timeless feel against the textural and rugged urban wall upstairs. Delicious and artisan food was provided by The Bachelor Farmer for this intimate and non traditional wedding and photographed by Jonny and Liz.
Audrey and Allen were married on a warm and rainy day at the Hutton House outside of Minneapolis in early July. We were almost ready to set up the ceremony inside the venue by the fireplace when the rain finally stopped and the sun came out. We were able to design the arch Audrey had her heart set on out in the Hutton House courtyard. The color palette included romantic neutrals, blush and mauve tones with gold and rose gold accents. Tall floral centerpieces created a statement for the reception dinner and gold candelabras with winding greenery and pink votives brought warmth into the large white space. Thanks Audrey and Allen for choosing us to be apart of your day! Images provided by Tandem Tree photography.
The talented mother and daughters planning team Devasco’s Daughters asked me to be a part of this event for local Minnesota artisans in late October at Ace General Store in Excelsior Minnesota. This intimate outdoor dinner celebrated a sense of community and a beautiful meal along with new and old friendships. A bonfire and unique local brews from Excelsior Brewing Company finished the evening. DeVasco’s Daughters styled and coordinated the event and incorporated their rentals into the design.

Jessie and Vince contacted me from Milwaukee Wisconsin and asked if I would travel from the twin cities metro to design their wedding flowers. We talked for several months about different ways to style greenery in the historic urban space at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee. Jessie and Vince had a vision of lush foliage’s and blooms with candles at their wedding ceremony and greenery styled on blush fabric runners for the reception. This was actually a planned surprise for their close family and friends who were under the impression this was just a party. (Both sets of parents knew however!). Thanks to Geneoh Photgraphy for the images.
We are eagerly waiting for the professional photos of this blush and cream wedding at The Hutton House in Medicine Lake Minnesota (just outside Minneapolis) but in the meantime, here are a couple of our favorite Instagram pictures of Audrey and Allen's wedding day. An abundance of greenery from the gardens at Studio Fleurette with gorgeous local peonies and other whimsical flowers were used. Gold was the metal of choice used throughout with taper candlestick holders, vases and candelabras. A sophisticated shade of blush fabric was wrapped around the in house modern white arch in the courtyard at the Hutton House where the ceremony took place and lush greenery and flowers climbed the steps inside as a welcoming entrance for the guests.
Tracey and Shaun had hot and humid weather on their wedding day but luckily this wedding was indoors at Muse Event Center in Minneapolis. Tracey had a vision of a large lush floral wreath to stand in front of for the wedding ceremony. We used many different types of foliages, foraged appleblossom, vines and gorgeous spring flowers including tulips, peonies and spirea in shades of white and cream. Mixed metals and cascading whimsical silk ribbons completed this romantic look for Tracey and Shaun. Thanks to Brittany at Lux Events for pulling it all together and Rochelle Louise Photography for the images.
August weddings in western Wisconsin are always delightful and this late summer event at Birch Hill Barn in Glenwood City was no exception! Danielle grew up in the area and appreciated her family’s history nestled in the hills near Glenwood City. She requested romantic late summer neutral blooms with a just picked look and feel. We incorporated many local blooms and foraged greenery along with some choice flowers grown in my gardens just for this wedding. Photos are provided by BethCath.
Brogan and Keith were married last March at Aria in Minneapolis and they had a long history of travel and exploring the world together. They brought in their map decor, custom made signage and incorporated globes as table numbers. A wood swing with whimsical floral and vines hung from the catwalk and Brogan had a vision for deep jewel tones with a fresh moss tablescape for the 32' long harvest head table. Bud vases filled with spring blooms hinted at the changing season and lush greenery was used for the hanging orb installation. Blush and Whim coordinated the day with photos provided by Twig and Olive Photography.
Weddings are winding down for the season and it’s time to pick up the blogging habit again. The photos are rolling in and first up are Cait and Ryan and their Stillwater Minnesota wedding photographed by the talented film photographer Jake Anderson. A marsala, burgundy and blush color palette with autumn textures popped against black dresses and tuxes. Cait looked amazing in her dress standing in her childhood bedroom in her family’s home high up on the banks of the St. Croix River in Stillwater. The ceremony was at St. Michael’s Catholic Church and reception at Lake Elmo Inn.
