A million littles

We had to make about 80 of these. Cute little bursts of winter love.

A few more of the Engels... By Roya Jade Photography. She was quite amazing- please check her out!

always hurrying

where's waldo?

Sometimes in a pinch to take a shot of something you like, you have to sacrifice location. Not everything can be perfectly lit... that being said, can you find the flowers?

p.s. Shane hates fernleaf. I always think of that when I scroll through this picture in my phone.

for Jess

and Jake. Two super legit people. Love, Love, Love them. Though I must say it's wild when you happen to be a guest at a wedding where we do floral; I am constantly looking around for details that may need tweeked, candles that might not have been lit, place cards that aren't straight... I probably look like the crazy guest that you don't want to talk to! Best was when a server who I folded napkins with saw me later that night and says " Woah- you look nice now!" Awesome.

pears and pine cones

I could not get enough pics of these! I loved how wild and sprawling they are- kind of draping over the entire table. My kind of flowers for sure.

a beautiful wedding space and hurried pictures

greenhouse loft
Bears win season kick off game
65 degrees
75 percent flowers picked by yours truly
some off the highway with scissors and a bucket
happy bride
happy groom
happy, hurried us.

for christine and brett. not brad- brett.

Yes, I made that mistake. Hope they don't hold it against me because we realllly liked them! Christine and Brett were referred to us by event planner and former bride(!) Kristine Galli Hankins from Kristine Aletha Weddings , who by the way is EXCEPTIONAL when it comes to reliability, detail, attitude and event planning. Most event planners are pretty cut and dry when it comes to prepping with vendors (which it totally fine; I don't expect to go out for drink after an event) but Kristine really puts in effort to opening dialogue and hammering out specifics. Trust me, if you are looking for a planner, or even just a day of person- she and her team are amazing.

Here are a few of my pics from the day- I can't wait to see the professionals! By the way-the flowers from the centerpieces are missing in these :( we were using the flowers for the backdrop afterwhich we were replaced them in beakers! I swear, they looked cool! Saving money where we can! Again- we'll wait for the proofs :)
