Meet April! | Employee Blog Series | Day 1



Team Photos | Laura Murray Photography

Anyone that has been a friend to Cori Cook Floral Design knows that I (Cori), have never wanted to do this adventure alone.  When I dreamed of being a floral designer, I always pictured a staff full of friendships and the happy, silly chatter that would likely happen while we designed beautiful bouquets of flowers.  Over the last 5 seasons, this little staff has grown into a team that I am both amazed by and extremely proud of!  These young women are another extension of my family.  I love them all not only for their talent and contribution to CCFD, but for their friendship and support in my life.  

This winter, we met up with Laura of Laura Murray Photography and Jessica of A Vintage Affair Rentals, and took some lovely staff photos.  I love how they turned out. 

Stay tuned for next week's blog series that will give you a more personal look into the lives of these lovely young women (and man!)

Spring Wedding Flowers | Denver JW Marriott |

Spring is in the air in Denver!  Trees are blooming, the sun is shining, and my heart is happy.  Enjoy this lovely Denver wedding we did in mid-April that is full of beautiful Spring blooms.  Any opportunity I have to work with lilac and cherry blossom branches is a happy day!  Photographed by one of my fav Denver photographers: Laura Murray Photography!

Winter Wedding in Estes Park | The Della Terra | Molly + Zach

Winter weddings are some of my favorite to design!  Maybe it's because they are few and far between in a state that could either be an insane blizzard or beautiful and sunny on any given day in January.  Either way, I adore the textures, colors, and types of flowers that are available in January.  And when we go with the season and what florals are available in their prime, it adds to my glee.  

Molly was a joy to work with, and I know I say this a lot, but her and Zack are beautiful people.  They are obviously a gorgeous pair, but they are also gracious, kind, and overall beautiful inside and out.  I so enjoyed working with them!  

For Molly & Zach's winter wedding in Estes Park, at the Della Terra Mountain Château, we designed florals that were both modern and seasonal.  We used beautiful, white amaryllis, freesia, black and white anenomes, silver brunia, mini pinecones, roses, dusty miller, pine branches, eucalyptus, and blue privet berries.  Oh, how I love how these bouquets and centerpieces turned out.  For centerpieces, we designed in lovely birch wrapped pots and used full sized pinecones.  Cozy accents like sweater-wrapped vases, yarn balls, and wood rounds were used as accents on escort card tables, cocktail tables, and a beautiful table full of wedding pictures from the bride and groom's families.  

Congrats, Molly & Zach!  Enjoy marriage.  It's the best thing ever!
