Vail Wedding Flowers | Larkspur Restaurant | Shadi & Jonathan

Even though I do flowers for about 40 weddings a year, I still love weddings.  I love celebrating with friends, crying through the ceremony, dancing the night away, and I LOVE holding my husband's hand and remembering the day we got married ourselves.  Marriage is a big deal.  I believe it is created by God for our good.  So naturally, it feels like an honor to share in the celebration of a friends' wedding. 

Enter Jonathan and Shadi.  I love these two.  I have had the honor of getting to know them the last few years through serving together on our church's youth staff.  Both have so much inner beauty, kindness, and concern for others.  It was a blast to share in celebrating their marriage. Congrats, Jonathan & Shadi!

We also had the honor of designing Jonathan & Shadi's personal and cermeony flowers in beautiful Vail.  I love how they turned out.

Vail Wedding Flowers | Piney River Ranch + Donovan Pavilion

I just about died when I saw these photos...I mean, what a gorgeous wedding!  Gorgeous bride, wedding party, flowers (if I may say so myself!), and just look at those mountains!  Beautiful!  Enjoy this lovely wedding photographed by Kira Horvath Photography.  Congratulations, Beth & Robbie (:

We designed simple, fluffy bouquets of peonies for the bridesmaids.  

 


The Bridal Bouquet was made of white roses, spray roses, succulents, scabiosa pods, and seeded eucalyptus.  

Boutonnierres were made of lily grass loops and succulents.  

Centerpieces were an electic mix of florals and branches.  In the center of the table sat a wooden box with birch branches.  Around the base of the box were monobotanical arrangements of white and green: white hydrangea, lime cymbidium orchids, white tulips, and green upright amaranthus.  Each set of birch branches had several hanging votives.  There was also a wooden table number on each table and twine-wrapped succulents as favors.

Crooked Willow Wedding | Cori Cook Floral Design

Love this fun, funky wedding we designed with Ashley from Table 6 Productions in June!

Yellow is my favorite color to work with...EVER.  And when it's paired with grey, my heart swoons a little! Enjoy this lovely wedding brought to you by Harper Point Photography.

Love this panoramic shot of the bouquets + amazing attire!  We decided on designing a monobotanical bouquet for each of the girls.  From the left: White China Mums, Yellow Pin Cushion Protea, White Dendrobium Orchids, Yellow Calla Lilies, Billy Balls, and White Peonies.  I love this style where each bridesmaid gets her own unique bouquet.  The Bride's Bouquet was a modern cascade of white phalenopsis orchids, yellow calla lilies, billy balls, and yellow oncidium orchids.  

Each bouquet had yellow billy ball "buttons".  We love detail!

Modern Boutonniere made of dusty miller, yellow oncidium orchids, white dendrobium orchids, tied in a black grosgrain ribbon with white border stitching.  

Billy Balls in Black Lacquer Vases lined the aisle way.  

Centerpieces hanging out before the room flip!  We designed three styles of centerpieces.  From the left: Fabric covered tall, square vases with velvet ribbon banding.  Each vase had a manzinita branch with yellow cymbidium orchids attached and hanging crystals.  The other style was a black lacquer vase with a beautiful spray of yellow oncidium orchids.
