a contemporary orange wedding

The wedding we worked on today took place at Mount Vernon Country Club in Golden. Jenise had really fun ideas for her wedding, all orange, clean lines and very contemporary. We had a great time designing the arrangements for her wedding. Here are some photos:
We placed vases filled with orange gladiolas supported by orange and clear glass pebbles down the aisle.
The front altar pieces were about 5' tall, the orange gladiolas were submerged inside the vases and then a cluster of more gladiolas sprouted from the top. Quite an impact with bright orange gladiolas against the Colorado blue sky!
The bridesmaids carried hand-tied bouquets of vendela roses, white ranunculus and orange mambo spray roses. The stems had a simple band of brown satin ribbon.
Jenise carried a hand-tied bouquet of orange roses, three different varieties of orange roses were used, orange ranunculus and white stephanotis with pearls.

AIFD Symposium

I'm back from the AIFD symposium that took place in Palm Desert, CA, this past week. We had 2 1/2 days of demonstrations to watch. Some of them really knocked my socks off - ok, I didn't have socks on since it was a balmy 108 degrees in the desert... I took a ton of photos and will post a few of those here. It's amazing how these designers can take to the stage and construct pieces that go to the ceiling - just fabulous! We had the pleasure of seeing Sylvia Weinstock on stage, she's the famous cake designer from NYC. None of her materials showed up at the hotel and she took to the stage w/ just three stems of flowers. She managed to keep everyone laughing and engaged for around 40 minutes until her powerpoint presentation could actually be shown to us! Preston Bailey came to dazzle us with his latest events, one taking place in the South of France. I also enjoyed demonstrations by Life 3 - a design group from Europe. In fact, the European designers really dazzled me this year - so much energy and great ideas!
Next year Symposium will take place in Chicago....

The 7-6-07 - Good Luck Wedding!

On 7-6-07 we worked on a wedding with a good luck theme of lucky bamboo and the number 7. The ceremony took place at a church on University Avenue in Denver, reception at Arrowhead Golf Course.
The bridal bouquet was a composite bouquet of white callas lilies which surrounded a cluster of lily of the valley.

The decor at the church consisted of two altar arrangements, each with 7 stalks of lucky bamboo. Green hydrangea with black ribbon adorned the pews.

The reception had two different table centerpieces. One was of 7 stalks of bamboo with black river rocks.
The other option was a vase constructed of green kermits. Seven stems of stars of Bethlehem were clustered together.

We are part of blog catalog

news from the studio!

I can hardly believe it is July 1st! The past two months have just flown by. We've worked with such awesome brides that have had great ideas - perhaps that is why our season is flying by!
Yesterday we were in Beaver Creek working on a pleasant wedding taking place at Beaver Creek Chophouse. Perhaps the bride and I had so much fun together once we realized we both attended University of California, Santa Barbara at the same. More than likely we had friends in common and classes together! It is a small world we live in.
Next weekend I fly to Palm Desert, CA to attend the AIFD symposium. I'm looking forward to this quick trip. I'm sure I'll be reinvigorated with fresh ideas in floral design. Plus, looking forward to seeing many of my flower friends.
Here's to the next four months of weddings!

The Broadmoor wedding
