Alaska Weddings: Jamie + Adrian

admin Weddings

I love me a colorful Alaska wedding! Jamie and Adrian got married at Arctic Valley with a mountainous backdrop, so they wanted their florals to pop against all the natural beauty. Kansas and Sarah Bernhardt peonies from Alaska Blooms Peony Farm were of the utmost importance. As were lacy purple larkspur. I just love this color scheme! Pops of orange …

Alaska Weddings: Chelsea + Sam

admin Weddings

It is possible to ship wedding flowers. I’ve done it a handful of times and it’s always a huge worry whether they make it safely. Usually when I don’t hear anything from a long-distance client after shipping an order I take it as good news – everything went smoothly. I didn’t hear back from Chelsea + Sam who got married …

Alaska Weddings: Caity-Ann + Jon

admin Weddings

When Caity-Ann approached me about her and Jon’s wedding flowers she knew what she wanted: purple, white and orange. But the orange had a special significance. It is the awareness color for a chronic nerve pain condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Caity-Ann wanted to feature the color in her bouquets as a tribute to her fellow CRPS warriors. …

Alaska Weddings: Rachelle + Brad

admin Weddings

I love when a client suggests a project I’ve not done before. When Rachelle asked for a full-sized eucalyptus crown with one to match her baby flower girl, I was super stoked. Of all the hundreds of flower crowns I’ve made, I have never made a big ol’ eucalyptus one. There are three types of eucalyptus in that crown plus …

Alaska Weddings: August Elopement

admin Weddings

Every so often I’m hired by an events planner to create flowers for a couple whom I never meet. I don’t know who these flowers were for, but boy were they fun to create! What a lovely combination of colors, height and texture! This bouquet had white peonies, sunflowers, lavender stock, blue delphinium, white larkspur, lisianthus, wild yarrow, wild tansy, …

Alaska Weddings: Chelsea + Brett

admin Weddings

I did several “natural” weddings last year, where the clients wanted neutral colors and lots of greenery so as not to overpower the breathtaking wilderness of Alaska where they were getting married. Chelsea and Brett were looking for creams, whites, wild flowers and lots of desaturated greenery. I was happy to oblige. I especially remember foraging for this wedding. It …

Alaska Weddings: Kelley + Marcus

admin Weddings Leave a Comment

Alaska might be the biggest state, but it sometimes has the smallest-town feel. I first met Kelley around 2002 when she was my lab partner in geology at the university. Marcus I must have met around 2005 in the downtown Anchorage scene. We’ve always exchanged friendly hellos whenever we see each other. It brought me joy when I discovered they …

Alaska Weddings: Sara + Chris

admin Weddings Leave a Comment

Sarah and Chris were out-of-towners living their dream of getting married in Alaska. They also happened to be getting hitched the same weekend as my sister, which required some thoughtful planning. Sara and Chris wanted bright, cheerful florals. This is just up my alley, and I was pretty stoked because it was also the color scheme for my sister’s wedding. …

Alaska Weddings: Jordan + Mikki

admin Weddings Leave a Comment

Jordan and Mikki are two cool cats I’ve known for a long time. When I heard they were getting married I crossed my fingers they would approach me for their wedding florals. I’m so glad they did! They got married in Girdwood, which is the most fitting place for their personalities – they are cool as hell! Jordan’s bridal bouquet …

Alaska Weddings: Aimee + Shawn

admin Weddings Leave a Comment

When I first met Aimee and Shawn I knew we were going to be a good fit. They wanted jewel toned wedding florals with an emphasis on fuchsia and plum. Shawn is big into fishing so he supplied me with flies to incorporate into the boutonnières – how fun! Mini bridesmaid bouquets are now my favorite type of secondary bouquet …
