August bridal bouquet for a very nice bride. The thing about weddings is you become a part of this very special day; a focal point in photos and memories. I never wanted to do weddings—for nearly two decades I said no to tape and pins and what I thought would only be a stressful pursuit. But since getting some training and saying yes, I have to say that every single bride we have worked with has been a delight. Yes it’s stressful because you want the work to be beautiful, to hold up in the heat, and to meet the expectations of the girl and what she envisioned you would create just for her. But it’s also creative and celebratory and rewarding—especially when you get a hug. This beauty was created by my wedding specialty Nadine Elmgren and she did a beautiful job as usual. #farmerflorist#weddingflowers#leelanau
Here is my wooden bouquet from our wedding 6 years ago.
Still looks the same, and that’s why I opted for wooden flowers. I didn’t wanna pay extra for preservation. I was also quoted $$$ for a customized shadow box for it. Didn’t wanna pay for that either .
If you’re looking to save some $$, here’s a tip. There are standard shadow boxes out there that are cost effective. I found mine at Michaels for less than $40 (plus coupons). Tada! My bouquet is staying pristine.
Tenemos la primera #expohistoria en nuestros domingos de compromiso .
@laleegr Nos cuenta: Cumplimos dos años de novios el 19/07. Me llevó engañada a su departamento donde había preparado una cena romántica, todo lleno de velas y pétalos de rosa. Mientras comíamos se acercó, me levantó y me propuso matrimonio SIN ANILLO. No le creiii , pensé que era una conversación más sobre casarnos algún día, hasta que me mostró que había encargado el anillo pero aún no había llegado! Y comencé a llorar de alegría! Llegó la mañana siguiente, fue a mi casa, fuimos a mi habitación para dormir una siesta y cuando me di vuelta estaba de rodillas con el anillo proponiendome otra vez ...volví a llorar. .

Brittini and Wilten declares their love for one another yesterday in front of their friends and family. .
Their outdoor wedding had a stunning background. The Cross is a perfect added touch. .
The mango calla Lillies, roses and hypericum berries were perfect for the day. .
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your big day! we wish you many years of love and happiness!
Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite.
As a photographer, I have noticed that I look at things a lot (slightly random but I am going somewhere with this). I noticed this especially after watching a documentary about David Hockney (aka the most delightful artist alive) in which he talked a lot about traveling & coming home to England & taking the time to really look at things. Noticing details in the landscape or the emotional effect of what your eyes are seeing.
It wasn’t until he mentioned it in the film that I really connected to that portion of what I do. Looking first & then capturing it with the camera. .
Anyway, it’s been cool to keep all that in mind while editing.
It’s been a week & I still keep thinking about this stunning flower wall from Yolande & Fred’s wedding.
It was a smallish detail on the wall behind the wedding parties table.
But it struck me when I first saw it walking into their reception & it’s stuck with me ever since.
Porsche Weddings & Majestic Weddings did a beautiful job transforming the venue!
Sometimes I get too excited to give the bouquets to my beautiful brides @shwally that I forget to snap a pic and all I have to share is her beautiful centerpieces. Have to wait for the professional photos congratulations Ashly and Daniel!
This weekend’s bridal bouquet for the sweet @chels_trox I will always have a special place in my heart for this couple! Congratulations to the Elms!

Creamier versions of our beautiful Brides flowers.
I get a little excited about all of the florals available when buying for weddings and more often than not you end up with Bridesmaid bouquets ( almost ) as big as a Bridal.
Huge floral impulse shopper over here! ♀️ #bride#bridalparty#weddingday
Those who know me well know I have a little #ocd & that I love to be organised.
When you get to the end of your lives together, the house you had, the cars you drove, and the things you possessed won’t matter.
What will matter is that you had each other.
Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Oien!
