Ponderosa & Thyme Workshop

Date: November 17, 2017

Location: Tendue, Portland, OR

Workshop Host: Katie Davis, Ponderosa & Thyme

Photographer: MacCoy Dean

Workshop Team: Mark Davis & Sarah Pearson

 

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Back in November, I was sitting in my van anxiously awaiting set up for a big event, and on a whim, I decided to register for The Ponderosa & Thyme Bouquet Workshop. I am here to tell you that I am so happy I trusted my gut, and so grateful that I made a spontaneous decision to go.

IT WAS WONDERFUL. MAGICAL. INSPIRING. All of the good things, truly!

I walked in to the beautiful Tendue space, and I was greeted by smiling faces and beautiful blooms. I immediately felt at home. 

Katie is an angel. She is the sweetest, most down to earth person I have ever met. She kicked off her shoes, invited us to eat, drink coffee, sip tea, and reflect together. 

We went through a flower meditation, foraging adventure, ate delicious meals and had the most wonderful GLUTEN FREE | VEGAN DONUTS from Katie's husband Mark of BigWig Donuts.

Katie's workshop staff included; Sarah Pearson, her husband Mark Davis, and photographer MacCoy Dean. Everyone was kind, supportive, and had their own inspiring stories to share.

Thank you for everything Katie, Mark, Sarah, and MacCoy. And thank you Antje, Robyn, Lindsay, and Emily for being yourselves, I feel lucky to have flower friends like you.

A roof top courthouse ceremony followed by an intimate rehearsal dinner at Casco Antiguo started off Jesse and Sophia's epic wedding weekend. There are so many little details that made this my FAVORITE wedding of the year. Jesse and Sophia worked hard to bring their modern, artistic wedding to life. A stellar vendor team, hand painted artwork from the groom, unique decor touches (including a SUPER FUN photo booth back drop), and a custom made neon sign are just a few of the details that make this wedding so special. Thank you Jesse and Sophia for trusting me with your vision, and for letting me have so much artistic freedom with your florals.

Megan & John's wedding was the perfect "Seattle" wedding. Rooftop first looks at the Thompson Hotel, bridal party photos in Pioneer Square, followed by a reception at one of Seattle's top wedding venues, The Foundry by Herban Feast.

When Molly of Bridal Bliss reached out to me about Megan and John's florals, she described the day as "romantic and classic with a nod to the South". My DREAM client. Megan is originally from Georgia, so we thought it would be fun to incorporate some peaches in to the head table decor with just a "pop" of peach in all of the arrangements. 

Megan and John's day turned out to be one of my absolute favorites of the year. A beautiful combination of classic and romantic with a modern and natural twist. Matthew Land Photography captured everything beautifully. When I opened their gallery for the first time I squealed, (literally). Thank you Matthew Land, your work is STUNNING!

Take a peek for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
