Marin Wedding: Kate + Jeremy

A few months ago I was offered a unique chance to take my floral skills out of state. A family friend’s daughter, Kate, was getting married in Marin County, a paradise in the Bay Area. This was not only an opportunity to work with flowers I can’t get up in Alaska but it also meant I could reunite with my old floral partner, Evan Falconer of Paper Peony.

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!
