Cait and Ryan's Stillwater Minnesota Wedding

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.

Emily and Paul's Greenery Wedding at Aria Minneapolis

Emily and Paul were married on a rainy day in August but they had a beautiful romantic greenery infused wedding inside Aria in Minneapolis Minnesota. They were creative with their intimate ceremony and chose to have it in the main lobby of Aria under the chandeliers which we draped with soft greens. Vines were installed on fabric and a candlescape down the aisle completed the look. Inside the main room for the reception were cafe lights and hanging garlands to create a welcoming atmosphere. Mixed metals, textured gold linens,trees and romantic light flowers contributed to this classic and garden style wedding. Photos provided by Geneoh Photography.

Wedding Bouquet Preservation

Congratulations to Jaimee Morse and her new business The Heirloom Bouquet! This is an innovative and exciting approach to preserving your wedding bouquet. The team behind The Heirloom Bouquet will source the blooms, create a custom flat-lay, photograph it and then each flower is titled by way of custom hand calligraphy and placed beside its corresponding bloom. What a modern way to transform a bouquet into an elegant and timeless heirloom!

Kristin and Matt at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis

Sunday September 4th was warm and humid but still perfect for Matt and Kristin’s wedding day at St. Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles and the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis. One of my favorite things about their wedding were the eight bridesmaids in mismatched blush dresses. It was a pretty view looking out across the lawn at Minikahda watching them all getting photos taken with the amazing Laura Ivanova. Neutral flowers with a heavy base of greenery, ferns and texture were used with gold and blush accents. Warm wood tones added to the organic garden feel in the classic ballroom at the venue. Blush and Whim coordinated the wedding with photography by Laura Ivanova.

Jake Anderson Workshop at the Outing Lodge Part II

These photos are from another segment of the Jake Anderson film workshop that took place at the Outing Lodge in Stillwater Minnesota last June. This session focused on the natural beauty that can be found in simplicity. I designed a table runner of foraged greenery, shrub clippings and tree branches for a textured and slightly less refined look. A hint of blue was brought into the styled shoot for attendees through the use of botanical plant dyed ribbons from Silk and Willow, blueberries and the groom model’s blue suit. Flowers in the bouquet included the coveted Distant Drum garden rose, solomon's seal, clover, nigella, queen anne's lace and garden clippings. Evelyn Barkey (one of the attendees) and Jake Anderson provided the photos from the workshop.

Winter Loft Wedding at Solar Arts Building Minneapolis

Sula and Danny had a vision for their winter wedding at the Solar Arts Building in Minneapolis. They pictured an intimate urban loft wedding with their close family and friends that incorporated the use of delicate birch branches and greenery. Sula’s color palette was a base of white and cream with pops of burgundy black and a little vintage pink. Peonies, spray garden roses, chocolate cosmos, delicate orchids and privet berries added color and texture and a touch of gold added warmth to the space. Thanks to Ash & James Photography for the images!

Taylor and Mark at the Minikahda Country Club Minneapolis

Taylor and Mark were married on a bright and warm September day in Minneapolis at Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church and the Minikahda Club. I was happy for their day but sad to see our year long relationship end. Taylor wore a beautiful lace dress and requested a classic white bouquet with minimal greenery and a polished look. Her bouquet included roses, sweet peas, ranunculus and gardenia for a hint of southern sweetness. See Jane Plan coordinated the wedding and Jaimee Morse Photography captured it perfectly.

Jake Anderson Workshop at The Outing Lodge Part I

Jake Anderson, who specializes in film photography, asked me to be a part of his workshop and provide inspiring floral for the attendees. I created several styled tablescape designs and bouquets using seasonal flowers only available for a few weeks in June including white clematis and mockorange blossoms for this garden wedding inspiration. All foliages used here were from my gardens and some of the varieties were viburnums, bush honeysuckle and clematis vines. This photo shoot took place on the grounds at the Outing Lodge in Stillwater Minnesota and was featured on Once Wed.

Clean and Modern Winter Floral Inspiration

This simple and little photo shoot took place at LAB Minneapolis this past January with partners Jake Anderson Photography and stylist Emilie Szabo. We wanted to create a neutral winter look with a modern but still overall organic feeling. Warm grey fabric and plant hand dyed ribbons added softness with the ruffled floral while the cement vessel on the table provided some clean lines. A touch of gold in the tableware and handcrafted jewelry finished off the winter look. Thanks to Cottage Hill Magazine for featuring this project! A full list of credits is listed below.
