Dana's Pretty Plumeria Pewter and Yellow Wedding!

Dana's flowers were gorgeous! We got fresh plumeria from Hawaii, and Dana was so excited! Originally we were just using phaeleonopsis orchids, but I was able to get her first choice, plumeria! They smell delicious!

Her bouquet had white mini callas, stephanotis, and gorgeous plumeria blooms.

This bouquet smelled amazing!

The girls wore pewter dresses so we added dress fabric around their stems.

They carried bright yellow calla lilies and more plumeria blooms! I can't wait to see the professional photos!

Sneak Peak at Angela and Kevin's wedding on May 21, 2011

I loved working with Angela, she was so fun to work with and so easy going, it made my job effortless. I have to say I have no idea who their photographer was (it was a friend of the couple, who by the way did an AMAZING job taking these photos!), but Angela said I could blog these and I am so excited to share some of these gorgeous photos! Her and Kevin's wedding was by far one of my favorite, maybe the most favorite, when it came to colors, textures, and the variety of flowers I could use. I felt like a little kid for this wedding!

The ceremony took place at an adorable little catholic church in Mullica Hill.

The flowers looked gorgeous! I used Coral Charm peonies, pink peonies, pink and peach garden roses, hydrangeas, and loads of other flowers!

I LOVE the colors of all the flowers with the champagne dresses!

The reception took place at Running Deer Golf Club, and this is their awesome purgola, which we decorate for all of their outside weddings!

The room looked breathtaking! I went crazy with the flowers! Check out my previous blog of all her flowers! Can't wait to post the rest!

Lauren's Wedding on July 15, 2011

I can't wait to see the professional photos from Lauren's wedding, but wanted to post a few of her bouquet! I loved her bouquet. It was simple, clean, and totally my style! We used white hydrangeas, lavender sweet peas, Purple Haze roses, and white Patience garden roses. It was so fragrant and romantic!

Lauren did something so cool! She took lace from her mom's wedding gown, and we wrapped her stems with the lace. It was so pretty and such a great way to add something memorable!

We also tied on Lauren's grandmother's gold ring to her bouquet, so she had two "Something Old"pieces in her bouquet!

Laura's Wedding at Running Deer on July 17, 2011

I had a blast doing Laura's Sunday morning wedding at Running Deer Golf Club. Laura's cake was decorated with loads of ranunculus, green hypericum berries, green trick, and prince's feather.

It's a good thing I have 5 years under my belt as a cake decorator. One of the things you will learn very well is how to save cakes that are almost destroyed and make them so pretty, no one knows how they looked before. This cake had an accident. We don't know who the baker was, or why they left the cake in an unmarked box, and on the floor. Who does that? So the girls at Running Deer asked if I could fix it, and I knew I could no problem. So I put the tiers back together, and covered all the seams and then added flowers where the icing had been destroyed. I was sooo happy with the final product, and so were Heather and Tara at Running Deer, and so was the bride and her parents! It was a good day :)

Her centerpieces were super cute! We added curly willow tips into clear rectangle vases, then loaded it with seasonal flowers. This is another one of my "bright wildflower weddings". I love them! I used hydrangeas, lisianthus, garden roses, ageratum, freesia, zinnias, ranunculus, and loads of other flowers. The day turned out gorgeous! The professional photos will be posted on my blog soon!

Samantha and Dave Part 2

I wanted to share some of my photos from Dave and Samantha's wedding at Running Deer Golf Club in July. I just blogged her wedding two blogs back, and her vintage library themed wedding turned out beautiful! This is one of my favorite photos of the day. My baby is the sweetest thing in the entire world. I love when he helps me! He is the best part of my job!

The cake was from The Sweet Life Bakery and it was adorned with gorgeous wildflowers!

Her tables were so much fun!

Each stack of books was a different group of colors.

So pretty!
