Flower Inspiration :: Rembrandt Yard, Boulder Colorado

I think you'll pretty easily guess what Amanda's favorite flower is when you look at this post. However, Amanda presented me with an interesting request when we first met - she LOVES sunflowers & she is having her wedding at the modern and clean lined art gallery in Boulder called Rembrandt Yard. Typically sunflowers are seen in a field, outdoor style wedding, how are we going to use them in a modern design?
Amanda carried a hand-tied bouquet of sunflowers with feverfew added in. Her bridesmaids carried just sunflowers wrapped with a big, satin chocolate brown ribbon.

Here's our first taste of going modern with the sunflowers. Tall rectangular vases filled with a bouquet of sunflowers and surrounded by monstera leaves.

Sunflowers as the escort card:

Amanda & I created this centerpiece, how to display sunflowers in a clean & modern way? Here's a good way:

Amanda was a great bride to work with and I share her love of sunflowers!

Here's a light, airy, feminine and sweet wedding.. Kristie loves elevated arrangements full of hydrangea, Asiatic lilies and roses, this is what we made for her:

We alternated tables with a few lower centerpieces of hydrangea, sweetpeas, roses and cymbidium orchids:

We went a little contemporary and clean style for the sign-in table, three wired cymbidiums submerged in water:

Flower Inspiration :: The Flagstaff House in Boulder

My idea of flower inspiration -- rectangular tables filled with flowers and candles down the center. Especially when those centerpieces contain hydrangea & Phalaenopsis orchids! Throw in a few of my favorite white garden roses, cymbidium orchids and fringed tulips and we are all set!
Check out the centerpieces from this summer-time beauty of a wedding reception at The Flagstaff House in Boulder:
Chad made the dark brown rectangular boxes for us, we filled them with hydrangeas and Phalaenopsis for the head table:

The round tables had a collection of clear glass cube vases each holding one type of flower - polo roses, fringed tulips, Phal. stems & cymbidium blooms:

The guests tables had arrangements of hydrangea and either roses or tulips:

Cocktail table arrangements, three vases each with a peony:

Flower Inspiration :: Fossil Trace

I'm finishing off red & white inspiration week with a modern wedding we created on Fossil Trace Golf Course in Golden Colorado.

The centerpieces definitely went for the modern/simple look:

The bride carried a bouquet of red roses, callas & coxcomb, we embellished it with lily grass loops and crystals and wrapped rolled ti leaves as a collar, we finished it with a lily grass wrap (no ribbon):

And the cake, we filled it with roses and added charms on silver wire for embellishment:
