June has been a super rainy month here in MN and today was no exception. Last week while at the Calhoun Beach Club, it poured as I was setting up. Today, it poured again while I was setting up at the park for Karin's reception. I only pray that it stopped for a bit so she could have her ceremony out at the Arboretum. I love the soft pinks matched with light blue of this wedding. Out at Lake Ann Park where the reception was held, it was neat to see all the details that the couple added in to make it personal...they rented a bouncer for the kids, and set up a bunch of lawn games...I think this wedding would have been lots of fun!

Heather's wedding this weekend was every florists' dream! I have been "playing" with flowers for over 10 years now and I finally got to design for a bride that was having her reception at the Calhoun Beach Club! I have so wanted to go there for years, and it was as beautiful as I thought it would be! Too bad my camera battery died by the time I got there...I have seen some professional shots though and will post them soon, they were awesome! This wedding was also amazing because I got to use Peonies and Hyrangeas! I also got to use my two favorite colors, Pink and Purple! I think my favorite part about this wedding was how the pew flowers doubled up as table centerpieces down the center of the huge oval head table...professional shots later will show you what I mean, it was a long and busy weekend!

This weekends' wedding was all about color and it was so much fun! I love each and every wedding that I get to design because it involves my most favorite thing, flowers...but this one brought a ton of color into my house and got me excited for summer! Sara had a fun idea for her flowers, and wanted each of her bridesmaids' to carry a monochromatic bouquet, while her bouquet was then a mix of all the colors. This wedding also held a "deja-vu" moment, where I delivered the flowers to her church, and realized that I had been there before, but it was like 7 years ago! The wedding coordinator at the church was the same as before...small world...and even smaller that she remembered me! Super fun day!
