Rose Drenched Wedding at Annadel Estate Winery

01-real-wedding-annadel-estate-winery10

Amanda and Bryan were married inside the beautiful stone wall ruins at Annadel Eastate Winery in Napa California in the fall of 2015. These centerpieces were all about ROSES. We had thousands of stems of full, fragrant garden roses for this event, all of them coming from local farms. We kept the design here classic and feminine, inspired by the venue and the delicate lace of the bride’s gown and veil. The groom is a chef, so food was an important piece of this wedding. To incorporate some of this into the décor, Little herb, berry, and acorn bundles were tied to cards with each guests name and seating assignment. It was such a beautiful golden October day for them, congrats Amanda and Bryan!

Spring Mountain Wedding Inspiration

The most important thing to me when creating flowers is that they look fitting in the environment that they will be going in. Whether that is a wedding in a field, a corporate event in a modern building, or an arrangement for the dining room table, I want to make sure the flowers look appropriate for the setting. When I am working out in nature, it is of utmost importance to me to make sure the flowers compliment the surroundings or look like an extension of it.

This photoshoot was a collaboration with Afloral.com who sells faux flowers. All of the flowers that create the aisle here are fake! It was so fun to take on this challenge, and create something that looked so natural with them. See more on Oncewed.

Spring Flower Workshop

sarahwinward.com | spring flower arranging class | photo: Heather Nan

One of my very favorite things about my career is the people I get to meet. I can’t believe how many incredibly talented, kind, strong people there are out there that flowers have brought me to. I have met many of these people through teaching. Last Spring I had the most wonderful group of women in one of my Spring intensive workshops where we worked on designing, and discussed the business side of things.

I had such a good time with this group!

It is so beautiful to watch someone create something that is an expression of themselves. You can see it, each arrangement is in some way a reflection of the person who made it. It is so fun to work with the same people for a few days and see their style really show through every arrangement they make. I love watching people light up with they work with flowers.

In this class we used spring blooms and citrus on the branch to create these large arrangement that explored the use of complimentary colors. Our centerpiece arrangements and bouquets used a softer palette of whites, lavenders, and muddy greens. I love when all of these tiny blooms are available in the Spring, and we used them all.

As a group, we covered a three arch arbor with blooming acacia and forsythia. I love working on these bigger pieces together. We didn’t have Heather for this part of the day, so you’ll have to make do with these grainy photos I took as the sun was setting. This day was so joyful. Thank you to each of the attendees, I truly loved getting to know you, and seeing the beauty that you create.

Dress for bouquet pictures is from the Elizabeth Suzan White collection.

One-on-One Spring Flower Workshop

These photos are of my work from a one-on-one floral workshop I taught with Chikae as my student. Chikae is a florist based in London who was on a tour around the world learning from florists, stylists, and photographers. I feel lucky to have been a stop on her journey. We had a wonderful time using a bounty of spring blooms to create centerpieces, large arrangements, bouquets, and a floral arch.

These bouquets are some of my favorites to date. I think it is also safe to say that between these two bouquets I used all of my very favorite flowers!

As a spring baby myself, I am a total sucker for all of the spring blooms.

We utilized blooming, pear, plum, quince, and magnolia branches in the arrangements, with a plethora of hellebore, frittilaria, and ranunculus in each of our arrangements too. It was a flower feast.
