Blues and Browns

Alyssa and Matt were married last Friday at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Maple Grove and they wanted brown and cobalt blue flowers with a cottage garden feel. What a beautiful day it was!

I love brown flowers. They seem to add depth to a bouquet and bring out the bright colors and textures of the other flowers around them.

Alyssa is a very petite woman so I made her bouquet small, easy to manage and chock full of beautiful little flowers: tweedia, delphinium, ranunculus, viburnum berries, chocolate cosmos and tiny, cream spray roses.

The bride's bouquet, groom's boutonniere and the 3 year old flower girl's spray rose and eucalyptus wand.

Thank you to Studio Laguna for the beautiful bouquet images!

Here's a quote from the Mother of the Bride sent to me a couple days after the wedding:


Everything was wonderful! I very much liked the table decorations as they were modern, beautiful, and set the table perfectly. Alyssa's bouquet was exactly what we were looking for. It was great to work with you Ashley. We received many positive comments on the flowers.
Thanks! Kathy"

On the cover of Lake Minnetonka Metro Magazine

A big thank you to Lake Minnetonka Metro Magazine for putting my coral peony bouquet on the cover for their September 2010 issue. What an honor! They also showed four other bouquets inside for the magazine's annual weddings issue. This was an incredible, collaboration photo shoot. I will always be grateful to have been a part of it!
