Holy Ghost Catholic Church Wedding | Jodi + Drew Part I

When I first met Jodi and her family over coffee for our consutlation, I knew we would make a great team!  Not only is she incredibly sweet, creative, and beautiful, but she comes as a package deal with her equally talented and sweet sisters.  Lucky for us, these sisters are multi-talented in the wedding industry.  Jodi's eldest sister, Jenna, owns a fabulous paperware company that Jodi also works at called Fleur de Lis, A Paperie.  And Jodi's other sister, Jessica, is a fabulous wedding planner and planned every last detail of this wedding to a tee.  In fact, the Ciravella sisters even have their own wedding blog, Tutto Bella, which is super sweet and packed full of great fashion and design advice and fun wedding-related finds.

Enjoy Part I of this lovely wedding!

We lined the church's aisleway with rustic lanterns and pillar candles.  I love the simplicity of it.  

The flower girl rode in a wagon decorated in viney florals down the aisle...

Jodi's bouquet was a blast to design and was inspired by her amazing gown (favorite wedding dress of the summer!)  It was a composit bouquet made to look like a romantic rosette.  I loved how it turned out and how perfect it looked with her dress.  

The adorable Ciarvella sisters...

Bridesmaids Bouquets were made of sunflowers, bill balls, hydrangea, wheat, lysimachia, and bluplurum and hand-tied in burlap ribbon.

Della Terra Wedding Florist | Cori Cook + Audrey Hannah

I just love the textures and colors for this beautiful Della Terra wedding we did in August!  Isn't it lovely?  And I love when our flowers get to be the only "pop" of color in a wedding against darker, contrasting bridesmaid dresses!

One of our favorite things about this season was getting to design for more weddings in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.  We have designed for numerous weddings now at the Della Terra in Estes Park, and love this venue.  Not only is it a gorgeous location for a wedding, but their staff is super accommodating and stress free!  If you're looking for a venue in the mountains, you should definitely check it out!

Daniel + Rachel | Irvine, CA

My brother-in-law got married this August!  It was an beautiful day with a homespun, casual, family-style feel.  Guests enjoyed lawn games and BBQ brisket and sat under the shade on long rows of picnic tables adorned with wild flowers arranged in mason jars and gingham.  It was a wonderful day!

Congratulations, Daniel & Rachel!  I am so happy for the two of you.  Marriage is a blast and I pray that yours is filled with love, respect, and joy overflowing.  I love you both so much.

Vail Wedding Florist | The Donovan Pavilion | Heather + Josh

Ever since I was given a yellow canopy bed as a little girl, I have always loved yellow.  Lucky for me, I got to do many a yellow wedding this year.  But my absolute favorite pairing with yellow is grey.  Charcoal, Pewter, Grey...whatever shade, I love it all.  

This wedding excudes CLASS.  Classy attire, classy colors, and classic beauty for flowers.  Plus, my dear friend, David Gaston, of Gaston Photography got some of my favorite ring bearer and flower girl shots to date.  They are a precious pair! 

Heather---I loved working with you every step of the way for your wedding!  You are the definition of true beauty.  Congrats to you and Josh!

The Bridal Bouquet was made of peonies, white and green hydrangea, gardenia, and veronica.  

Groom & Groomsmen Boutonnières were made of dusty miller leaf, scabiosa pods, and lily grass loops.  Tied in yellow ribbon.  

Chair Arrangements were made of peonies, spray roses, and garden roses, with varying shades of yellow and grey ribbon trails that looked amazing blowing in the breeze.

The Bridesmaid Bouquets were wrapped in yellow ribbon to coordinate with dresses with a white lace overlay.  

Half of the Centerpieces were tall cylinder vases with curly willow and white and green hydrangea.  With dendrobium orchids attached to the branches.  

The other half were a lower version of the tall centerpiece, with twisted curly willow inside the vase and a charming arrangement of white and green hydrangea.  Each vase had a lace banding.
