I am excited to announce a new workshop I’ll be teaching this Summer!

This is a collaborative workshop with the wonderful Becca and Maz of The Garden Gate Flower Company.

Becca and Maz have put together an amazing two days for us at the cozy Botelet Farm in Cornwall, England.

In our two days together we will make bouquets, centerpieces, large urn arrangements, a big ceremony arch, and have some time set aside each day for business discussion. Each students’ work will be professionally photographed by Allen Tsai so that you can use the photos in in your portfolio.

Read more about the details of the workshop, and sign up over here.

Wedding Planner Masterclass with
Laurie Arons Part Two

sarahwinward.com | Photo: Jose Villa | Laurie Arons Master Class | Winter Wedding Ideas

These photos are part of my post about Laurie Arons masterclass from the Spring, see part one here.

As look two for the couple for the ceremony shoot, I made this springy bouquet. I loved working with so many different colors of hellebores. They are one of my favorite flowers, and having so many varieties to work with was really fun. This bouquet was springy, was also very inspired by the landscape that was just barely beginning to thaw out from a long winter. Willow branches and other small branches were budding up, and the earth was golden with the dried grasses from the previous year, but starting to show a bit of new life. I love the color palette of spring, the contrast between the muddy earth colors, and the bright flowers that begin to burst through it is one of my favorite combinations. This bouquet encompasses that for me.

The dinner shown here was the final dinner for the workshop. Laurie and I created this rich colored tablescape to elevate the barn space and make it a bit more cozy. There was  a chestnut colored velvet table topper, each guest had a cashmere scarf draped on the back of their chair, and was able to sip their drink from a beautiful amber colored glass. The florals were textural and spilled out from gold platters onto the tables.

It was such a joy to work with Laurie and the rest of the collaborators for this workshop to create these fun designs as demonstrations for Laurie to teach with.

Laurie will be teaching another Masterclass in March 2017 at the Santa Lucia Preserve in California. Applications are now being accepted, for more information visit the masterclass website.

Wedding Planner Masterclass with Laurie Arons

01-laurie-arons-workshop-sarah-winward011

Laurie Arons is a wedding planner that I feel very lucky to be able to work with. She has been in the industry for a very long time, and she knows what she is doing.

The events she designs and executes are flawless. Laurie asked me to do the flowers for her masterclass in Montana at The Ranch at Rock Creek. Here is part one of  what we created together at the workshop for the attendees.

The welcome dinner was held in the blue canteen building at the ranch, it is this adorable building with a canvas top and walls. We took inspiration from the copper bar in the space, and then built the look of the dinner around that. We filled the table with delicate spring flowers spilling down the table, and created this will branch hanging installation to float above the tables. Attendees were greeted with a warm drink, and walked through the ranch to the canteen where they were able to warm up around the fire before being welcomed in for dinner. It was such a fun way to start the week!

As a part of the workshop we also created this ceremony setup so that Laurie could demonstrate and discuss how she approaches the ceremony design and function at her events. We wanted the ceremony décor to be light, and compliment the natural surroundings. We chose this spot right in front of the icy pond for the ceremony, and I created florals by taking inspiration from this location, and kept it delicate so that it didn’t distract from the natural beauty. Simple floral clusters growing from the benches, and some votive holders made from ice at the head of the aisle.

This was such a fun project, and it was so fun to collaborate with all who were involved.

A huge thank you to my friend Kelly Lenard for assisting me with the florals for the workshop.

Laurie will be teaching another Masterclass in March 2017 at the Santa Lucia Preserve in California. Applications are now being accepted, for more information visit the masterclass website.

As seen in Geraldine Magazine and on Style Me Pretty.

Colorful Ranch Wedding

01-sherbert-wedding-ideas-by-sarah-winward001

Jenny and Taylor wanted COLOR for their wedding flowers. Jenny loves bright colors and contrast. It was fun to play with different color combinations for her, and take on the challenge of making these colors compliment the soft golden hues of the grassy hillside surrounding their venue. We made them a floral aisle runner, and a giant, beautiful arch to stand beneath for their ceremony. The day was windy, and all of the flowers fluttered in the breeze making them really feel alive.
One of my favorite elements of this wedding were the gold stands that we put on the head table and filled with silvery greens that danced above their heads. Thanks to Leo for capturing all of the colors in this wedding perfectly, and happy one year Jenny and Taylor! You can see more of this wedding is in the current issue of  Geraldine Magazine.

New York Wedding at The Glass Houses

Britt Chudleigh - Photographer www.brittchudleigh.com www.chudleighweddings.com

I usually work in outdoor or fairly rustic spaces, so working in New York City and an ultra modern, minimal space was such a fun change.

For Jaclyn and Jordan’s wedding we covered the ceiling of a glass room with vines. When the light came through the room it was incredible! Guests dined beneath the vines and chandeliers as the sun set over the city and I imagine it was a pretty magical dinner for Jacyln and Jordan’s guests.
