Ashley and Genesis were so great to work with. They were laid back, trusting, and had a clear vision of their needs. They also have two of the cutest pups of all time! Harper definitely stole the show with her hand made floral collar. Easily one of my favorite projects to date, check it out below!

Thank you Ashley and Genesis for allowing me to be a part of your day!

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.

Chrissy + Bert

I met Chrissy at Roy Street Coffee in Capitol Hill a few months away from her wedding. She brought her Maid of Honor, Brittany along for support, and as soon as we started talking, I knew she was my type of bride! Sweet, funny, and down to earth. Chrissy & Bert were so easy to work with, we exchanged texts and emails over the next couple of months, and when their wedding day rolled around, I was SO excited to design their flowers! Their color palette was white and red. The red being for good luck.

Krista Welch of Krista Welch Creative took STUNNING photos, and I am so excited to share them with you!

Thank you Chrissy & Bert!

Lora + Max

Sometimes the best things come together unexpectedly, and at the last minute. Lora and Max contacted me shortly before their wedding explaining that their florist had cancelled and they were in need of a new florist. I am SO glad that they reached out. Lora and Max were both kind, grateful, and so in love. They shared intimate gifts with one another before their first look at the altar. Alex Lasota captured their day so beautifully. All of the small details, smiles and one of the cutest bridal party pups to date are below!

Kellyn and Robby have known each other since high school. Their wedding symbolized the true definition of a labor of love. A beautiful backyard wedding complete with an arbor hand made by the groom and bride's step father. Home made pie, BBQ, a fire pit and mountain views make this wedding truly unique and wonderful. 

 

 

Anna + Mike

Date: June 17, 2017

Location: Maroni Meadows, Snohomish, WA

Photographer: Lora Grady Photography

Cake: Baked Seattle

Floral Design: Rusted Vase Floral Co.

There are a few times each wedding season that I meet a bride and instantly know that we are the perfect match. When I met Anna earlier this year, it was one of those encounters. I felt like we had been friends for years. When you pair that chemistry with an amazing vision and vendor team, it's likely that the wedding will be wonderful. Maroni meadows is tucked away on a quiet side road just above the Snohomish valley. It is a sweet backyard venue with just the right amount of decor. Lora Grady Photography blew me away with the photos, soft, romantic and beautiful. To see more of Lora's work and more from Anna & Mike's wedding, be sure to check out her blog here.
