Katty and Jordan had their reception at the Philbrook Art museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma that feel like a piece of Italy plunked down in the middle of a neighborhood. It was such a beautiful setting for their celebration.
I loved the color palette for Katty and Jordan’s wedding. Muddy pinks and soft taupe, lots of soft blue, and deep burgundy accents. Ginny dyed up countless yards of soft blue ribbon for us to tie around Katty and her bridesmaids bouquets and it felt like a ribbon feast.
We covered half of the tables with garlands and flowers in burgundy tones, and made the others tables softer with muted pinks and taupes. Both tables had early fall fruit trailing down them between candles. It was a wonderful color combination, one that I think would fit in any season, I’d like to do it again!

I absolutely loved working for Yubeteh and Dennis. Yubeteh challenged me to make her an all white rose bouquet that was round and simple. I ended up loving her bouquet, and am so grateful for those clients who challenge me to make something different than I usually do, and trust that I will come up with something beautiful.
Yubeteh and Dennis were married in beautiful Jackson Hole, with a backdrop of the Grand Teton mountains. I live near similar rocky jagged mountains at home in Utah, but I am floored by the beauty of the Tetons every time I am there.
Their ceremony took place in a tiny wooden chapel up against a lake, and their dinner and reception at the beautiful Amangani resort.
Yubeteh’s flowers were soft, feminine, and fragrant. I loved working with such sweet flowers in a space like Amangani that is more masculine and strong. We made these custom lace linens for the dinner tables, and brought several aspen trees into the dinner space to soften it for their celebration. It was such a beautiful event, thank you Yubeteh and Dennis for letting me contribute!

For Ruxandra and Scott we brought all shades of pink and white in seasonal blooms to fill their tables and ceremony space with. Sunstone Winery is such a beautiful setting for a wedding, inside and out. The stone and weathered wood of the building were the perfect balance for Ruxandra’s ultra feminine flowers. One of my favorite details from this wedding was the escort card display we created with vintage silver trays and vining plants covering a piece of furniture at Sunstone.
I have spent the last few years teaching just as much as i’ve been doing weddings, and I really love it.
I love sharing what I love about flowers, how I work with them, and seeing that flower fire ignite in the people I am teaching. There really is nothing quite like finding your passion, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to work hard and turn mine into a career.
In person workshops are wonderful, but they are also time consuming and expensive, making them available to only a small group of people. I am so excited to announce that I have just launched a digital course! I poured myself into writing this course, and am so thankful for the huge team of people that contributed to it. Because this option is much more affordable than attending a personal workshop, and you can do it on your own time, I hope I can reach a much bigger audience with this!
Thank you to all of you for your interest in learning more about what I do!
You can read more about the course and purchase it here.
It is hard to beat being surrounded by a dozen flower loving creative people for several days, and doing nothing but create, visit, and eat delicious food in the most beautiful setting imaginable. I was so inspired by the group of women that attended the workshop, I feel like at each of these workshops I leave feeling that I was more inspired by the students than they were by me! I love their enthusiasm and fresh take on flowers. I am so grateful for each of them what they contributed to our few days together at Bibury Court.
We were able to take everyone to Green and Gorgeous Flower farm and cut our own flowers to work with for the few days. Thank you to Rachel for opening up the farm and letting us cut so many of her beautiful flowers. It is hard in the states to get so many of these beautiful foliages and smaller textural flowers. It was so wonderful to be in the Uk where there are so many small farms, and so many florists who grow their own flowers. So many of the interesting flowers and greens that I love to work with are readily available. Not to mention the foraging! The hedgerows in England are filled with all sorts of wonderful material.
