Early this year Tamia Stinson, a stylist at Cincinnati Wedding Magazine, contacted me to contribute to a style page. The theme was Wood Nymph. Before the shoot for the magazine I asked Leah of Leah Barry Photography to come and document the bouquet for me. Here are Leah’s beautiful images:

I did a second bouquet for the shoot, which wasn’t used in the magazine. Here are more of Leah’s beautiful images:

This is one of the coolest weddings that I’ve been a part of – an engagement party turned surprise wedding! It all went down at Hyde Park Country Club at the end of March. Casey and Brian are both Cincinnati natives, but had recently relocated to Portland. They wanted flowers inspired by the woodlands of the Pacific Northwest.

Casey’s bouquet is one of my favorite bridal bouquets to date. The purple sweet peas, scabiosa, hellebores, and fritillaria are so gorgeous, but my favorite part… the variegated Solomon’s seal!

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were made to match the bridal bouquet, and doubled as cocktail table arrangements. The bridesmaids snagged them off the table right before walking down the aisle.

The beautiful fireplace and mantel at Hyde Park Country Club were dressed with ferns, succulents and branches.

An hour after the engagement party started the wedding party slipped out and changed. The doors to the dining room were opened immediately before the ceremony, and an aisle runner was rolled out to the ceremony arch. I used my new black steel chuppah (folded down into an arch) and dressed it up with ferns and hanging succulent terrariums.

After the ceremony, guests sat at tables with woodland centerpieces inspired by Portland native Francoise Weeks. The center of each arrangement featured a Juniper slice that I purchased at the cut flower market in Portland over a year ago. I couldn’t imagine finding a more perfect couple for these!

You know that you are working with good photographers when you are presented with so many stunning images that it is hard to choose just a handful. Lucky for me, Christy and Josh at Eleven:11 Photography Studio make a habit of taking gorgeous images, so I spent some serious time trying to narrow down the amount of images in this post. Carrie and Jake were married in June of 2013, and I provided the personal flowers. They had their ceremony and reception at the The Little Red Schoolhouse in Indian Hill, Ohio. Carrie and I never met – we planned all of the flowers via phone calls and emails. I think they turned out quite lovely. See for yourself…
