Stephanie and Chris

A wintery night at an intimate bar, two people who are very much in love, a close group of family and friends, beautiful details, artisan cocktails...... sounds pretty great, right? That was the setting of  Stephanie and Chris' beautiful wedding in mid-January of this year. They married at Canon, the bar on Capitol Hill known for amazing, craft cocktails and an impressive collection of whiskey and bitters. Stephanie is the talented designer behind Dahlia Press, a design and letterpress studio that makes gorgeous paperie, so she has an incredible sense of style (you can jump right over to her website here to check out her beautiful work!). She created the invitations and paper good for the day, all with a prohibition-inspired theme to match the bar and vibe of the wedding. The fabulous Erinn J. Hale photographed the day beautifully (um, the LIGHT in this first portrait- WOW! So beautiful). And if you want to see this wedding in print, check out the current issue of Seattle Bride Magazine- Stephanie and Chris' day is one of their featured, local weddings.

But before I share the photos, I have to share the email that I received from Stephanie, on the day of the wedding itself, shortly after I handed off the flowers: "Kelly!! I just have to tell you how over the moon I am for the flowers. They are more stunning then I could have ever imagined. The bouquet looks AMAZING with my dress!! I'm taking a little break in between photos and ceremony time and just had to message you. Thank you soooo much!!! Your work made this day so special." Suffice to say, receiving that email put a big smile on my face - that is exactly the kind of response that I hope each and every one of our couples has when they see their flowers.

Congratulations Stephanie and Chris!

From the Garden....

Looks like we're starting a little series here, posting an arrangement that is 100% Seattle-grown, from the Botanique Cutting Garden about once a month. We'll try to keep up the trend! This one is a little berry-toned number, with Koko Loko roses, dahlias, bronze amaranth, queen anne's lace, scabiosa, and just the slightest hint of physocarpus.

Featured on Magnolia Rouge

We loved creating the florals for this beautiful shoot, featured today on Magnolia Rouge. The shoot took place in late May, and we rounded up columbine, viburnum, red peonies, roses and spirea to make these wild, woodsy floral pieces. Full list of vendors at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
