Winter Flowers

If you have been following our blog for a while, you know that we are BIG on local flowers! And you might wonder what that looks like in the winter, when there isn't nearly as much blooming locally as in other seasons. Hopefully this post will be inspirational for those planning winter weddings, who don't want to skimp on the lush florals, but want to stay local too. In the winter, we source a lot of our blooms from California- not as local as Washington and Oregon, but not too, too far away either. Almost all of the beautiful roses we used in these designs came from Eufloria and Green Valley Floral, two of our favorite sources for California grown roses. We went foraging around Seattle for bush ivy (the ivy that you see growing up all the trees and telephone poles) which has beautiful, midnight blue berries in the winter. Those elements made up the bulk of these designs, with ranunculas, anemone, hyacinth, maidenhair fern, and huckleberry foliage adding extra textures.

All of these beautiful photos were taken by Jennifer Tai. This was our design with MG Davis Events and Vintage Ambiance for Weddings in Woodinville this past January, at JM Cellars. The paper goods were created by The Card Bar. Enjoy!
