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!

Beaver Creek Wedding | Kate + Phil

We, at Cori Cook Floral Design, love cohesive, well-designed weddings!  That is why we loved working with Kate this summer on her destination wedding at Beaver Creek.  Everything about this wedding screams "Celebrate!" Most of our bride have a common love and appreciate for great floral design.  They can often be heard at consultations saying things like, "I just love all flowers..." Just like them, Kate has a passion for flowers.  So much so that she has created her own floral design business in Southern California and is doing quite well.  So it was a huge honor to be chosen as the person to design her flowers.  We used all kinds of cheery blooms like coral peonies, peony-tulips, kumquat vine, parrot tulips, ranunculus, and poppies.  What fun! 

We also love how her paperware was consistent, lively, and cohesive with the style of the wedding.  This is a new passion of ours...more on that to come very, very soon...so stay tuned!!!

Enjoy this lovely wedding and do yourself a favor and follow Kate's amazing blog: www.floretcadet.com  You won't be disappointed!

New Aprons | Cori Cook Floral Design

Introducing our new aprons!  Aren't they just adorable?

This summer, we went on a mission to find the perfect florist apron.  We searched high and low for aprons that were both functional and adorable.  Our findings = NOTHING.  Turns out someone, somewhere decided that florist aprons should all be boring, solid colors, and basically no fun.  Of course we wanted pattern, ruffles, embroidery, and functionality. So, we set out to have ours custom-designed.  Luckily, we found Aurora at Fabric Bliss who was willing to help us with our mission.  With the help of her brilliant mother and seamstress, Jude, we were able to design this masterpiece.  It has everything a florist could want in an apron.  It's got ruffles, a big floret pin, patterns, and tear-proof and waterproof lined deep pockets that hold all our tools during a big install.  We're in love.  

Thank you to all the happy hearts who took in this project: 

  • Morgan (for making it happen and for sketching the designs)
  • Aurora Sisneros from Fabric Bliss (we love you!)
  • Aurora's mother and genius seamstress, Jude
  • Amy Somerville, who beautifully custom embroidered our logo on the front of the apron (720.323.8675)

 Enjoy!
