Alaska Weddings – Caitlin + Jason

I don’t have the opportunity to do winter wedding flowers too often. Alaskans make the most of their summer and usually get married from June-August. When bride Caitlin hired me for her January wedding I was thrilled. She wanted all white and greenery.

Caitlin and Jason lucked out – the morning of their wedding it was like a magical snowy fairy land. Anchorage has been severely lacking in snow for the past four winters and this year hasn’t disappointed. We got about 18 inches on their wedding day.

Thanks to Erica Rose Photography for capturing my florals so perfectly!

Caitlin wanted simplicity so I went with white stock, roses, carnations and waxflower mixed with eucalyptus.

Caitlin had me wrap her bouquet in blush silk ribbon. I was overjoyed to finally have the opportunity to use this. It was a dream to wrap and tie! She had me add a little “something blue” at the last minute.

It was the perfect combination when it came to outside shots. Look at that snow globe of a world Caitlin got!

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.

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.

Alaska Weddings: Carrie + Christopher

It’s been a busy summer of weddings and I’ve still got more to go. This week’s was one of my favorites. Bride Carrie asked for cheerful blooms mixed with Alaska foliage — just my style!

Pink, pink and pink. I love it. Spray roses, Japanese aster and salmon hypericum berry were the central blooms.

Alaska Weddings: Dianne + Matthew

Every wedding I make flowers for has a different style and Dianne and Matthew’s Wasilla wedding is one of the most unique this year.

Dianne wanted jewel tones of amethyst and peridot. She adores orchids, which I learned can be limited in color and style in Alaska. I packed her bouquet with fuchsia orchid, purple lisianthus, white roses, baby’s breath, trailing amaranthus, traipsing plumosa fern, sword fern and Italian ruscus.
