Bri and Andy on October 17, 2009

This effortlessly beautiful bride was equally uncomplicated in her planning. From my first conversations with her during planning process she described a simple, natural, elegant and lovely experience for her wedding day. The delicate bouquet was created using heather, lavender, purple beauty berries, mums and fresia. I have blogged about this wedding before, but I loved it so much I had to show you what their photographer sent me!

The gorgeous mother of the bride wore Versace! Love it.

Sweet as can be; waiting for their big entrance :)
Thank you again Bri and Andy, this was one of my favorite weddings of the year, my only regret is that Mesa and Bentley, your two pups, were not able to attend the wedding due to their, exuberance, shall we say? :) All my best to you both in the future!

Minneapolis Style

Put together a September wedding at Semple Mansion, a custom dress, a gorgeous bride and her maids, a dapper gent and photos from and you will get pure loveliness...

The bride's bouquet includes white hydrangea, purple lady slipper orchids, white cymbidium orchids, large white mums and brown seedpod accents from a field near my house :)

Bridesmaids bouquets include white hydrangea, white mums, hypnose roses, scaviosa seed pods, eucalyptus seed pods, and the oh-so-cool purple mini artichoke.

scaviosa seed pod, eucalyptus leaf, purple leaf, folded over, from my garden (I will find out the name and tell you soon), and brown seed pods from a wildflower field.

Carmelle Hennagir, the incredible dress designer and seamstress from Grace Bridal Boutique, helps adjust a custom bracelet and broach the bride created herself from pieces she found at antique stores.

The bride with Jocelyn Davis-George, owner of Grace Bridal Boutique, and one of my favorite people in the world to work with and laugh with! I just love her!

Amazing details on the bride's dress created by Carmelle. Your work is incredible!

Kristi and Nathan, I just love you two, thank you for including me in your beautiful day!! It was so much fun designing for you!
