Alaska Weddings – Olivia + Neil

In December I had the opportunity to create wedding flowers at Our Lady of The Snows Chapel in Girdwood. I’ve seen many photos of this quaint cabin in the woods but there was something special about being there in person for the first time.

Olivia and Neil were looking for a wintery floral decor without too much of a Christmas look so I used flowers in deep magenta and scarlet.

A huge thanks to Grace Adams Photography for her breathtaking photos. She’s one of my favorite wedding photographers and I was thrilled to finally be able to work with her.

A perfect winter wedding to be sure.

The bride’s bouquet was brimming with the most exquisite white waxflower. She had wanted anemones in her bouquet but they unfortunately weren’t available. I was so happy Olivia was open to my using burgundy gerber daisies instead. Their dark centers gave the look of anemones and are much more durable a flower.

The dark bridesmaids’ dresses made all the bouquets pop!

It was hard for me not to wear around the flower girl’s crown, which was chock full of baby’s breath, waxflower and spray roses.

Red hypericum berries gave the boutonnieres a little bit of punch.

The altar centerpiece was one of my pride and joys. Trailing amaranthus was spilling over the sides and with the eucalyptus, stock and waxflower filled in between the roses it smelled so good!

The altar was framed with two large arrangements bursting with color and happiness.

I had so much fun designing the centerpieces and got some wonderful assistance from my friend Rachel of Alaska Blooms Peony Farm.

But what I really enjoyed working on was the garland for the sweetheart table.

Alaska Weddings: Ariel + Erik

I’m always learning something new with each wedding. With Ariel and Erik it was sending fresh flowers nearly 1,200 miles. This couple lives in Unalaska and for the first time I shipped my floral creations far, far away.

Alaska Weddings: Lena + Ivan

Last winter I did flowers for a couple in Alyeska. When I delivered them to the bride’s suite she introduced me to her maid of honor and said she would be getting married next summer.

Fast forward to today when I delivered flowers to bride Lena’s suite and I was greeted by last winter’s bride. The tabled turned and she was now the maid of honor. I love how small this town is.

Lena and Ivan’s colors were navy, coral, cream and orange. A perfect palette for the amazing autumn weather we’re having.

This bouquet made me giddy! The most perfect little orange spray roses looked like miniature garden roses. Combined with peach carnations, cream roses, solidago, scabiosa pods, salmon hypericum berries, billy balls and seeded eucalyptus — this bouquet was just what the bride ordered.

Alaska Weddings: Roxanne + Michael

I’ve been waiting all summer to use Alaska-grown dahlias. When bride Roxanne contacted me and requested “designer’s choice” bouquets, I knew it was finally my chance.

Roxanne’s dress was unusual – traditional red Chinese brocade with a peacock embroidered in gold. It only made sense to include gold sprayed eucalyptus and peacock feathers.

This bouquet was over the top thanks to the enormous dinner plate dahlia from All Dahlia’d Up Flower Farm.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were equally as luscious with smaller pink and purple dahlias, waxflower, myrtle, seeded eucalyptus and white spray roses.

I couldn’t resist putting a peacock feather in Michael the groom’s boutonniere.

One of my favorite bouts to boot!

The groomsmen’s bouts were all similar but slightly different. I love that!

The bride and groom were wed in misty, beautiful Girdwood this afternoon. Many congratulations to the happy couple!

I had to start out this post with a photo. There’s no more unique flower than an indigo anemone. I’ve never seen them before and jumped with joy at the opportunity to work with them.

Alaska Weddings: Peter + Jessica

Brides are all different. Some know what they want, others need a little more guidance, but some have a creative vision. Jessica was one of those brides. She and her mother came to me with the boldest theme I’ve encountered yet – burgundy, gold and deep purple. When they told me those colors, my eyes got big and I just said, “Oooooooh!”

A bridal bouquet of true majesty. Burgundy peonies, gold sprayed eucalyptus, antique pink carnations, red roses, white spray roses, burgundy and white stock, rosemary, purple mini carnations, Italian ruscus and leucadendron is a perfect wild, regal, ravishing flower arrangement fit for a queen!

I seriously contemplated putting on my wedding dress just to hold the bridal bouquet (the above photo is the toss bouquet).

Alaska Weddings: Jason + Rebekah

Some things I never get tired of. Foraging for wedding arrangements has to be at the top of the list. For Rebekah and Jason, it was important that a part of their state be incorporated into their wedding theme of teal, green and purple.

For the flowers they chose peach and fuchsia roses and purple Japanese asters as their palette to which I added wild yarrow, grass and ferns.

Finished off with a teal satin ribbon and presto – a lovely Alaska bouquet.
