Free Wedding Dress

Many of you have heard of the wedding dress shop in Ft. Collins which shut its doors and left many brides without their wedding dresses! The good news is that many other vendors and dress shops have pitched in w/ free or discounted dresses to help the brides. My dear friend, Tanya Porter, has offered two wedding dresses to deserving brides. Here is her note:

"I'm offering my daughter's wedding dress and one of her formals to any of the brides who might want them. The wedding dress is vintage as it has puffy sleeves and Victorian neckline, but I think in the right hands could be altered to be a beautiful gown. It has a chapel train and veil. I also have a beautiful white, simple satin dress that could be embellished - no train. It would be great for a destination wedding. Both are about size 8. My daughter is a size 4."

Fabulous Florists :: Brassavolas Floral Couture

Dodie Sy of Brassavolas Floral Couture is so talented, I adore his work. I recently pulled up his website to see what he is up to and was met with a gorgeous bridal bouquet at the top of the page (dahlias, cymbidiums, cattleyas, berzilla berries - wow!). Be sure to look through his posts, I'm sure you'll agree that he is amazing!

Flower Inspiration :: Backyard wedding in Boulder, CO

Here's a lovely wedding we had the pleasure of designing the flowers for, we worked with Julie Gambrell of Classic Creations. The wedding took place in the backyard of Kate's parents. I love the personal touch and the creativity we were given. Jared Wilson was the amazing photographer who worked on this wedding, I think he images are amazing.

Kate carried a soft & romantic hand-tied bouquet of white, ivory and pale pink flowers:

The tables were decorated with numerous crystal vases filled with hydrangea, garden roses, veronica, mint, gardenias, spray roses, sweetpeas and lisianthus:

The amazing cake table:

Intricate Icings grand opening

Recently we had the pleasure of providing flowers for the grand opening of Intricate Icings shop. Here is a photo of Rachael and the girls, isn't it too cute??:

Rachael's favorite color is purple, this isn't hard to figure out if you know Rachael and have been to her shop! For the party we designed all purple floral arrangements, which I loved!

One of her lovely cakes:

Here I did a criss-cross design of purple ribbon on a 24" tall rectangular vase, filled it with rolled leaves and allium.

The front entry of Intricate Icings, the sign is so cool:

Cute little favors, the cute boxes held yummy cupcakes!
