ideas that inspire us…

The rustic look is very popular with our brides right now; the idea of vintage and romantic all wrapped up into one look. When we saw this picture in a local magazine, we had to take a picture of it and share it with everyone. It is an older window ledge filled with sheet moss, succulents and individual containers of clustered flowers and twigs.

Fall, here we come!

With the summer heat and drought coming to an end, we were inspired by the colors of this wedding.  These pictures are from a wedding we did last year on Miami, Oxford campus.  Of course the theme “Fall,” was shown in many places; from the pumpkins on the tables, to the mums and berries and the twigs throughout the taller arrangements, the room was a color explosion of warm earth tones!  What a great overall theme.

Something White

  A beautiful bouquet of Vendela ivory Roses covered in white Gardenias.  This bouquet had the most amazing scent!  Can you imagine 17 gardenias?  It was quite sweet. The bridesmaids wore dusty lavender dresses, all with Ivory flowers.  What a beautiful wedding party! The beautiful Bride & Groom. Our bride Farida, is from the Dayton area but she is currently is Medical School in Chicago.  She met her photographer Andrew, of John Andrews Photography and realized he was the wedding photographer for her.  So he made the treck to Dayton, all 272 miles to shoot this amazing wedding!  And wow, was it worth it!  Check out more of his work at

Black Magic, Rose of the Week

The Black Magic Rose is considered the “burgundy” in the red rose family tree.  The petals are dark with a red velvet feeling.  The rose itself, has a large bloom size as well as a strong sturdy stem.  The Black Magic Rose is the second darkest in the color family, only to be beaten by Black Bacarra, the darkest of the dark red roses.

Flowers & Ice

We loved working with Ice Sculptures by Ramon for our grand opening event at Your Dream Day Cafe.  We made a large topper arrangement to go on top of his beautiful “Crystal Vase” ice sculpture. The arrangement consisted of Esparance pink roses, green mini hydrangeas, light pink larkspurs, white stock, white lilies, pink snapdragons and some greens. If you are interested in getting an ice sculpture for your wedding or event, don’t forget to call Ramon.

Country Chic

  All weddings aren’t created equal.  Some weddings are known for their high class, elegance, glitz and glam.  On the other side of the spectrum, brides are taking the “down home, country wedding” a notch above the norm.  All bets are off! Brides are having their ceremonies in barns, crop fields and horse farms (just to name a few).  They are also using so many refurbished ideas from the past; from mason jars to using antique broaches to adorn their wedding bouquet. This is a picture of Floral V Design’s Honey horse; behind the beautiful bridal bouquet sitting on a bale of hay!  Next to the bouquet is a pair of the bride’s original cowboy boots, even with the spurs on! Brides – Remember, be true to who you are.  If you do, all will end up perfect for your day and your pictures will prove it!
