Photo shoot with Alisa Benay

Aren't these phenomenal photos by Sam Adams Photography? He captured Alisa Benay's work so wonderfully. I created a soft white bridal bouquet of 'patience' garden roses, 'polo' roses, ranunculus and feathers for the photo shoot.

Thank you Karie Mclain for sending over these great photos of Sara & Scott's wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch!
Sara selected a bouquet of all white mini-callas with accents of bear grass:

Bridesmaids carried all green bouquets of hydrangea, kermit mums, freesia, hypericum berries and fern fronds with seeded eucalyptus:

The centerpieces were cool, all green flowers arranged in my brown boxes:

Wedding Inspiration :: The Pines at Genesee

Thank you Katie for these lovely photos of Jen & Sean's wedding at The Pines at Genesee!
Classic & pretty white flowers were used throughout Jen's wedding. I love this combination, timeless, gorgeous and we can play with a lots of textures.

Ranunculus boutonniere:

Jen provided me with some of the coolest vessels to design in for her wedding - logs that had been carved out! We filled them with white flowers, so fun!
First we placed them down the aisle:

And then they were used as centerpieces:

Hello 2011 & Hello Winter

Wow, a month since my last blog entry? I think that's a first in my four year history of blogging. My dear flower friend in Virginia, Holly Chapple , gave me a nudge on the phone yesterday & told me to get back to blogging! Well, the truth is I've been blogging a lot just on a different blog.. for all your flower lovers make sure you are following along on Flirty Fleurs!
Flirty Fleurs is definitely more about the business of flowers. I am thinking I have some catching up to do here on Bella Fiori, lots of beautiful images have arrived from photographers & I look forward to sharing them with you.

What else is happening at Bella Fiori? Well, Chad & I took a vacation to Peru in October once wedding season was over. I love the thrill of visiting a new country & experiencing a different way of life. Plus, seeing Machu Picchu was exhilarating & quite worth the trek!
I will be posting photos from the trip soon on Flirty Fleurs - I have hundreds of photos of the beautiful flowers there.

As for 2011 - what will it hold for us? Sadly, Michelle will be leaving us. She's been my main assistant for 5 years! Wow, 5 years! I will surely miss her and the visits from her cute-as-buttons kids. However, I'm very excited for her and her husband and his new career move!

Oh, in addition to a lot of photographs that I will be blogging about - we've been featured in some magazines lately, I'll post those too!
So get ready - we are about to look at a lot of flowers!

Happy 2011!!
