A Southern touch for Amy and Steve

Our wonderful couple Amy and Steve came to us with an inspiration photo found in a magazine.  Many of our couples do.  They see something about the colors, the style, the feel in a photo.  We love to help develop their dream from there.  When Amy mentioned her southern roots, we knew where we were heading...raw cotton bolls and magnolia...LOVE!
Late January in Oregon can provide some interesting weather. The week prior we had snow and lots of rain. The wedding day though proved to have clear skies, even some blue skies!  BeckenRidge Vineyard was beautiful in it's winter state.  Actually, went perfectly with the day.
We love photographers who capture our work in a way that we just cannot!  How we love the photographs from Angela of Tekoa Rose Photography!  Keep scrolling for more!
We love succulents and managed to get a picture of this from the bride's bouquet.  The white frilly tulips aren't too bad, either!  One of our favorites and not very easy to come by! This bouquet also had air ferns, silver brunia, white wax flower,  dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus and southern magnolia!

Each Maids bouquet was similar to the bride, minus some of the goodies.  We added the raw cotton to their bouquets for some fun accents!
The bride chose pewter, cream and white as her colors. The flower girl orb started with an orb of pewter satin ribbon with the small flower accents. We love how this look worked the pewter into her flowers. Such sweetness! Thanks again Angela for capturing it for us!

Small cocktail bistro tables were accented with black cube vases with pewter accents and a fun assortment for flowers.

Amy and Steve chose a combination of both tall and low centerpieces for their reception. White hydrangeas provided the base for these pieces.  Beautiful seeded eucalyptus, curly willow and southern magnolia finished off the tall pieces.  The low centerpieces included some silver brunia and white waxflower.  Loved the finished look of the room!
We would be remiss in not mentioning our friend Heidi and her wonderful Sweet Dreams Cupcakery! We love our flowers, we also LOVE Heidi and her treats! Oh my...just take a peek..

CONGRATULATIONS to Steve, Amy and Shadow!  We loved getting to know you! Happy married life!

Courtney and Jake are Married!

We so enjoyed working with our first 2012 bride and her mother.  They had a great vision for Courtney and Jake's wedding.  Courtney had a vision of what she wanted her bouquet to look like.  Peonies and garden roses in whites, creams, and peach.  We loved the addition of tropical tuberose.  This bouquet was heavenly scented.  Soft, romantic, and lush.
We loved our first bride of 2012!  We loved that we were able to find her peonies! We think she loved them, too!

LOVE this bouquet!
Courtney's maids bouquets had white Avalanche garden roses, white peonys, tuberose and were collared with baby's breath and galax leaves.

We loved these baby breath poufs that the bride wanted!  This was the largest order of baby's breath that we have ever used at one time!  Fun!  How about a great job by the family to transform the large venue? There were between 700-800 tissue poufs everywhere!
The ability to control lighting was  a bonus.  With the hanging twinkle chandeliers and candlelight, the space became magical!
Up close and personal with poufs!
More poufs!  Loved the family's use of tulle and poufs to divide the space and provide the backdrop for the wedding party table.
Thank you for selecting Celebration Florals!

Britney + Jarred at Diamond Woods Golf Course, Monroe, Oregon

We have learned through the years that many parts of a wedding are under the bride or her family's control.  The decisions they make are the ones they expect to see on their special day.  One aspect that is out of everyone's control is that of the weather.  So, that being said, Britney and Jarred had one of those Oregon rain-touched summer weddings.  Many decisions were reconsidered as the day developed and the weather did not improve. Thankfully, their venue did have many inside options. The bride handled every unexpected turn with grace and understanding.

We share this first picture to prove that even rain can be fun!
AND the best news, the skies cleared for their ceremony!

Britney's bouquet held white hydrangeas, a variety of white roses, white lisianthus and beautiful metalina roses.  The bouquet was collared with one of our favorites: galax leaves.

A family heirloom pearl necklace was used on the bride's bouquet wrap.  This was perfect for these flowers. Even the clasp on this necklace was beautiful.  We love adding sentimental pieces to our bouquets.

Such a beautiful group of women!

We delivered the maid's bouquets in Bllumeboxes with details to match those of the white hydrangea centerpieces.

Simply classic white hydrangeas in black Blumeboxes accented with ivory ribbon and the bride and groom's monograms.  So pretty!

Britney and Jarred, Thank you for selecting Celebration Florals for your wedding.  We loved designing your flowers!  Thank you to Powers Photography for most of the photos used here.
