Jen and Luke are Married!


A beautiful summer afternoon for a wedding at Yellow Gold Farm. We loved designing Jen and Luke's flowers for this very special wedding. Beautiful day, beautiful bride, beautiful venue, and of course, beautiful flowers! Does it get any better? Why, YES! A huge thank you to Sara Lil Photography for her beautiful photographs. You will be able to tell which ones she took!
Love this of the groom seeing the bride for the first time.




We attached sentimental pieces to the bride's bouquet. A very special tribute.










Congratulations, Jen and Luke and may all your garage sales end so happily!

Candlelight Dreams

For those of you following us, here is a wonderful image sent to us from our bride's friend and family. As we work on our blog in the cold rains of December, candlelight just makes everything better. Picture a warm summer evening along one of the most beautiful rivers in Oregon and the glow of these centerpieces surrounding. Not to mention the friends and family gathered for a beautiful wedding. Yes, warms your heart and makes the rain seem not so bad. Enjoy!

Kaitlin + Ace + Eagle Rock Lodge = Beautiful

Who wouldn't fall in love with Kaitlin and her family? We adored working with Kait and her mother as they planned this wonderful wedding at Eagle Rock Lodge on the beautiful McKenzie River. There were so many personal touches throughout the event, it was obviously a work of love. Kait's bouquet was designed with her request for lots of color, texture, and different elements.

Many of our brides request a family heirloom be incorporated into their bouquet. This hankie was carried by several generations of brides.
First looks are always so wonderful. This one did not disappoint!
LOVED the dress colors for the bridesmaids with the natural beauty of Eagle Rock Lodge on the McKenzie River.


A creative and classy boutonniere!
A fun aisle accent used for this wedding.
Wish we had a picture of these after sunset and the candles were lit.

Fathers of the bride are such good sports!
Happy married adventures, Kait and Ace! We LOVED being a small part of your big day!
Thank you to Sara Lil Photography for sharing these amazing photos with us. Beautiful!
We snuck in a few "non Sara" photos...we know you'll figure out which ones....

Nicole and Bill are married!

We were delighted to be selected to design Nicole and Bill's flowers for their recent wedding. The wedding and reception were held on the family's dairy farm. All of the buildings and grounds were polished to perfection. So many memories with this family! Many thanks to Phillip Wise photography for sharing the following images with us! Nicole's bouquet included all white flowers, with a touch of brown from the fern curls, and a collar of seeded eucalyptus. Beautiful flowers for a beautiful bride!
Nicole's mother was a wonderful friend to both of us. She passed away many years ago, but remains very special to both of us. Nicole chose to have her pin prominent on her bouquet handle. There were a few tears shed completing this bouquet.
To honor her paternal grandmother, Nicole asked us to tuck in one of the many owls collected by her grandmother. This bouquet was so much more than just the flowers!
The maids carried beautiful handtied bouquets featuring dahlias, mokara orchids hypericum, and blupurum to add some movement. All of our bouquets are delivered in personalized vases so that they may be featured after the ceremony. We always have fun finding a way to personalize these!
Who wouldn't love a ride like this? Not sure how they decided who got to drive!
Not to be outdone by her maids, Nicole's father drove her to the ceremony. We LOVE this ride!
We love the pure joy captured in our bride's expression!
The wedding was held on the family's dairy farm. Many beautiful locations for photos.
Now, let the party begin...

There is that car again! We wish you all the best and THANK YOU for choosing Celebration Florals to be a small part in your wonderful day. It meant more to us than you will probably ever know!

Meghan and Luke Marry at Paradise Springs

Black + white + rhinestones = Beautiful! Meghan and Luke chose the classic color scheme to compliment the beauty of Paradise Springs. The pictures speak for themselves. This wedding was absolutely beautiful in every way. Thank you for selecting Celebration Florals as your florist. We loved designing your beautiful wedding flowers. Thank you to Emy Lyn Photography for providing these stunning images!








Elizabeth and Karl Marry at Paradise Springs!

It was an honor to design the wedding florals for Elizabeth and Karl at Paradise Springs, in Monroe, Oregon. Elizabeth chose a classic color scheme of shades of red and accents of green. Beautiful!




Paradise Springs offers so many wonderful photography opportunities. These photos were all shot by Blue Castle Photography. We love their work!
These orbs were used as ceremony accents and then were moved into the lodge as accent pieces there. We love the stands provided by Paradise.





Classic cube vases were used for the tables. Once again the red and green accents provided just the right amount of color.



We love how the orbs tranferred into the lodge and provided a pop of color on the bar.
Elizabeth chose to do an additional photo shoot with her beloved Paloma. We fell in love with these pictures, too!

Fairytale pictures!

Beautiful photograph!
Congratulations Elizabeth and Karl!
Thank you for selecting Celebration Florals!

Classic Red Wedding at Adair!

There is just something about Kate and her bouquet. Pure joy and happiness!
Blue Castle Photography was the photographer for this happy event. As always, the photos are special. We love how Carrie and Jonathon capture the details and the emotions of the day! Congratulations, Kate and Kyle! We loved designing your wedding flowers!

Hot Pink and Green !

A beautiful summer wedding started at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Corvallis, Oregon. The reception followed at Garden in the Woods; a venue with so many wonderful elements!
We loved Shelby's colors of pinks and green! Who doesn't love stephanotis...nothing quite like it.

Love the shoes and flower picture! Shoes and flowers...some of our favorite things!

Congratulations!
Great picture on the campus of Oregon State University. Go Beavs!
Centerpieces with submerged flowers and lights. We used several wreaths to decorate the church. These moved to the reception to add to the beauty.


A beautiful shot of the wedding cake. Love the special cake topper!
Thanks to Justin Dane Photography for the great photos!

It's Orange and Blue at Paradise Springs!

Jenn and Justin chose a color scheme of orange and blue for their July wedding at Paradise Springs, a beautiful venue located just outside of Monroe Oregon. We loved designing all of the floral elements that Jenn selected. From the floral orbs, to the flower girl pomanders, to the individual floral cake centerpieces, to the beautiful bouquets. We LOVED EVERYTHING about this wedding, bride and her family!
Thanks to Sara Lil Photography for the beautiful photos!
Orange roses and mango callas! Beautiful!


Two adorable flower girls proudly carried their pomanders down the aisle!


The ceremony orbs moved into the lodge and became part of the accents there...LOVE the fireplace!


Each table held wedding cake centerpieces! How fun is that?

Our wishes for you two!



Where have we been, you ask?

We have had a fantastic summer wedding season...so busy that the blogging got left behind...The good news for our brides is that we spent all of our time designing and creating one of a kind wedding florals just for them...The bad news, if there is any, is that we weren't able to share them with our friends here in a timely manner.
So, let the fun begin!
This July 2nd bride selected a wonderful color palette of reds, oranges, pinks, and a touch of green. Yummy, as you can see from the photographs! We loved designing these beautiful bouquets. Congratulations Marni and Scott! Thank you for trusting Celebration Florals with your wedding flowers! A huge thank you to Shonda Barlow Photography for sharing the following pictures!



















Arwen and Peter are married!

Local peonies for Arwen and Peter's wedding July 24th at Beazell...could there be anything more beautiful? We think not! This bouquet was stunning! The bride and groom are absolutely delightful. What an adventure they are about to embark on together...on to Australia! We wish you all the best and are sorry we are losing you to Australia, Arwen! Arwen's maids carried wonderful garden style bouquets with delicious garden style roses, alstromeria, kolanchoe and a few other surprises! Yum!
What flower girl wouldn't be delighted to carry this around for the event?

We look forward to the professional pictures coming our way from Lauren Hurt Photography!


Jerry and Erin are Married!

The weather cleared, the skies were blue and it was a wonderful spring day at Dancing Deer in Cheshire Oregon. We loved meeting Erin, the bride. It was so fun to hear how she and Jerry met. We knew Jerry and his family when we were all much, much younger! Jerry, the groom, was a first and second grader in Peggy's classroom!

Erin selected bright fun colors of yellow, orange, red and lime green! Her bouquet also had an accent of purple!
Beautiful bride, beautiful weather, beautiful event! Congratulations!

A flower girl just too cute for words! She did actually drop a flower...of course, she dutifully picked it right back up!

Fun dresses for fun girls!


The groom!









Fun woodsy centerpieces to highlight the natural beauty of the venue!



Congratulations! It was an honor to be a small part of your celebration!









Jamie and Levi marry at the Philomath Scout Lodge!

What a wonderful bride to start our summer wedding season here at Celebration Florals. Jamie came to us with a vision of her bouquet and other floral needs. We absolutely loved designing all of her selections. When we arrived with the pieces, we were so happy to find Jamie and all of her girls absolutely have a great time. There were peals of laughter coming from the bride's room as they were getting ready. We are sure the rest of the evening was a wonderful success! Best wishes to Jamie and Levi! You were a stunningly beautiful bride! To view some professional pictures, please head to their photographer's blog: http://www.becerraphotography.com/blog/2010/05/03/472/ As always, great pictures, Chris!




















December Weddings for Celebration Florals


What a wonderful treat to share flowers with two special December brides! Kayla and Sarah were both lovely brides with great ideas.

Here are a few sneak peeks at their flowers.

We start with Kayla and Andrew. Kayla has to be one of the most excited brides we have seen in a long time. What a delight to see her so happy!



Next are Sarah and Ben. They will soon be moving across the Pacific Ocean, so a tropical theme was their choice. How fun to be able to work with all the beautiful tropicals in December!

A Beautiful Fall Wedding!

The day started out very wet and the skies opened up...what do they say about rain on your wedding day? Well, by the time the bride walked down the aisle, the sun was peeking through the clouds and the light was almost as beautiful as the bride. Here are a few photos to share until we get the professional ones!
Mango callas, roses, hypericum...
A beautiful cake by Edelweis cakes....

Two of the maid's bouquets: mango callas, terra cotta roses, hypericum, and more....
Perfection!




In the Oregon Cooler!

We have been having fun watching an unbelievably great florist on the east coast (http://hollychappleflowers.typepad.com/thefullbouquet) post her "In the Cooler" each weekend. Last weekend, another florist from Michigan (http://greatflowerlady.blogspot.com/) joined in, and now we are hopping on board as the West Coast locale! How fun is that? We realized that with the time changes, we would be a bit late, so decided to offer just a sneak peek of this weekend's wonderful flowers! We just LOVE the fall shades chosen by the bride. We are thrilled to be providing the flowers for this very lovely bride! We won't share any names! Check in later for the finished pieces...after Saturday! These mango callas are some of the prettiest we have seen!

The photographer tried so hard to show how beautiful these flowers are...I guess you have to be there in person sometimes! Trust me....they are gorgeous!




Pami and Jon

We loved being asked to design the wedding flowers for Pami and Jon. Their venue on the McKenzie River in Oregon was breathtaking. Thank you for choosing Celebration Florals!

Congratulations, Pami and Jon!
