Alaska Weddings: Kate + Joe

admin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

I love last-minute gigs. There’s a certain thrill about making people happy when they haven’t had a lot of time to plan. This was the case with Kate and Joe. Their good friend, Alyse had met me earlier this summer at a downtown Anchorage street fair where I was making flower crowns and she decided as a gift to the bride and groom she would purchase flowers for their Eklutna Lake wedding.

It was going to be a true Alaska wedding. The party wore XTRATUFs, the groomsmen donned Pendleton plaid with Patagonia puffy vests and the bride wore a yellow dress. Bride Kate wanted a wildflower, colorful bouquet and some corsages and boutonnieres.

It was a lot of fun working on this small wedding. For focal flowers I used small sunflowers and protea (also called pincushion). Surrounding these were purple mini asters, button mums and peach mini carnations. It was delightful.

My son was thrilled when I had some leftover flowers. He made his own arrangement to give to my friend Laura.
