Did you know apricot and cream colored daffodils smell just like apricots? I asked Tom to smell these and confirm so I knew I wasn't just imagining it. I am going to plant a lot more of these bulbs this fall.
I'm pretty sure the guys at Architectural Antiques thought something was wrong with me when I first walked into their shop. I had to stop, catch my breath, I could barely speak and my eyes were bugging out of my head. Yeah. Real professional, huh? Just look at this place, it is filled to the brim with inspiring pieces. Go there.
I was so happy to be a part of this amazing shoot created by Lisa Gilbertson of Simply Fabulous Events & Design and photographer Tasha Hergott of Red Bird Hills. When someone asks me to create to my hearts desire I immediately jump at the chance. Especially when it is for a dress like this one from Kate Towers. I like out of the box wedding inspiration.
The optimist in me said it wouldn't rain. Rain it did.
Good for the flowers. (Harumpf) May.
Leah and Jess still had a beautiful wedding inside the tent.
Outside the tent...again, good for the flowers.
Leah made all of the cranes, pom poms and knew what she wanted for her color scheme: red, yellow and orange with touches of pink and turquoise. The infusion of color was a welcome sight on this gray day.
I used locally sourced apple branches from a friend's orchard near Chaska and dahlias in the bride's bouquet are from plants in my own garden. (Purchased from Farm and Garden around Mother's Day)
