Details, details, details! It is easy to think of all the big things, centerpieces, bridal bouquets, corsages etc... but often it is the little things that will set your wedding day apart from otheres. A flower at each place setting, flowers on the backs of chairs, a flower on a chandelier. All together add up to a wow! when your guests come in the room.

Here are a few more images from the day
Clusters of baby's breath and candles add to the charm of the Shawdowbrook Restaurant.
Shawdowbrook Restaurant has been around for many years! I loved the rustic 70's vibe.
Notice the candles on the floor.

The three flights of stairs you go down AFTER you have taken the tram.
Nicole and John's wedding was lots of fun as it brought together a few fabulous vendors from the Sacramento area, Jennifer from http://www.memoryjournalists.com/ was the photograher,
Carissa with sugarandspice.me did a fabulous dessert bar and amazing cake that matched the invitation that was designed by stationary exdrordineree, Stephanie of stephaniejdesigns.blogspot.com. You really need to go the the Memory Journalist blog to see what an amazing job Carrisa did in matching the cake to the paper!
Also along for the fun was Phil of sheffieldmultimedia.com I will post the video as soon as it comes out.
Now onto the flowers!
These are some of my all time favorite boutonieers.
The bridal party flowers were made up of chocolate orchids, hyacinth, muscari, roses, galax leaves, ping pong scabiosa. I used satin ribbon and then fresh emblelishments down the front.
The centerpieces were composed of thistle, roses, Hyacinth,succulents, ranuculus and spider mums.
The reception room had glass windows that look out to the flowing river. We hung mini chandeliers from the ceiling to add a candlelit glow when it got dark.

I really do love my computer, I totally don't know how to use it most of the time, but I love it anyway.
I have a little morning routine, I wake up send my husband off to work then I sit on the couch with the best cup of Joe you ever tasted. I cruise lots of wedding blogs, I love photography sites, planning sites, and now and then I hit the big cities and see what the citified floral designers are doing. It is my favorite time of day, all my children are safe and sleeping, (it's nice to know where they all are for these brief moments).
It's also been a privilege and lots of fun to have my work featured on so many different blogs! In fact in the last 3 months Blooms has been featured in Hong Kong, Ireland, London and as of yesterday, Paris!!!
While checking out a post Jamie of itsajaimething.com did of my work, I found I had a comment, (see how this works, your on one blog, then you HAVE to click to the other blog etc.... and so on and then oh no you better get the kids in the car to get them to school)
Anyhoo, I came across http://www.luxeproductionsnw.blogspot/ the owner, Misty had left a comment about my work so of course I knew she must be fabulous because she liked my stuff and she is! I browsed her blog and loved it, you should take a minute and browse it too!
Thats me, celebrating that it's Friday!

Mark LOVES golf, so the party had a golf theme.
We used wheat grass, white carnation balls and glorisoa lilies to add a pop of color to each table.
Each table had it's own hole in one!
Birthday boy, well not really just a life size cut out of him!
White carnation golf balls
