Not very often do we have a bride who wants a super colorful wedding. It’s also not very often a super colorful wedding is executed this perfectly. While we only designed the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres we couldn’t resist sharing the rest of this wedding!

Ever considered a surprise wedding? Kylie and Justin pulled off the absolute best surprise wedding for all their wedding guests- including their wedding party! Only their parents and vendors knew the secret. Read how the night played out and take notes!
After Kylie and Justin announced their engagement they told everyone they were going to have an intimate destination wedding. However they wanted to throw an engagement party in town to celebrate with close friends and family. The wedding party were told that they would be a part of the photos and to please wear black dresses and suits. Dress code, check!
The guests entered from the sidewalk to the venue with an Airstream photo booth. We tied old maple sap cans to the railing with all the bridesmaid bouquets disguised as arrangements. All the other table arrangements were kept low so that nothing looked too fancy or suspicious.
During the cocktail hour a projection screen came down and a video featuring both sets of parents talked about Kylie and Justin. Then the bride and groom chatted about their relationship and their experiences together. About 10 minutes in Kylie yelled out, sorry we lied to you! We’re NOT going away to a destination wedding but we’re getting married NOW! People were flipping out...especially the wedding party. The guys were led to their room where they were told to put on suspenders. Justin changed into his tux and boutonnieres were pinned on.
The guests were asked to stand in rows and were given protected tapers that lit up the aisle with a beautiful glow for the wedding party, Justin and Kylie who wore her mother’s sleek wedding gown from 30 years ago.
Even after the ceremony the guests were still in shock as they danced the night away to The Patrick Lentz Band!
Look at those surprised faces!
Greenery installations in wedding venues have become so common yet it is anything but “common”. It’s a beautiful way to warm up a space, especially an urban loft area like this one at The Bauer. The live greenery with the exposed brick and weathered wood creates a truly romantic vibe when you add in the extra flowers, twinkling lights and a stunning bridal party!
A few extra photos from our phone:
While we have our own vases and containers at the shop, there are times a customer will bring in a specific container or vase for us to design a floral arrangement in. This got us thinking about how a personalized vase would be perfect for Valentine’s Day. We searched Etsy for some of our favorites to share with you. We would be happy to design in any of these unique containers!
Bright colored weddings seem to be having a comeback and we're all for it! While we still love classic white and soft blush, vibrant hues are fun and so cheerful. And those two words, fun and cheerful, really do describe the vibe for Sarah and Dave's wedding day.
When designing the bouquets for this shoot we wanted to create a look that was classic with a modern twist. In the first bouquet we color blocked bright orange tulips, free spirit roses, sweet pea, bird of paradise and freesia. Knotted flax and parakeet heliconia stems were added to give a modern and visual interest.
For the second bouquet we designed a cascade in a range of purples. To create a less traditional shape we used the large green selloum leaves and variegated aspidistra to form a base. The choice of leaves and sweet huckleberry branches gave a unique and tropical look. We added a funky purple spiral wire for sheen.
When adding flowers to a wedding cake sometimes less is more- you don't want to take away from the cakes design. For the first cake we added only a few sprigs of greenery at the base allowing the cake to really shine. As an accent to the delicate sugar work on the second cake we carefully traced the shape with white orchids.
