A summer breeze. An intimate gathering on the lawn. A soft organic smell is in the air. A collection of people. A melange of things. What a beautiful day for a wedding!
Hali has been one of our favorite brides this year. She really wanted a one of a kind flower experience. The wedding was set with collected wonderment, burlap, vintage tea cups and saucers, gathered containers, and succulents as favors. The flowers included everything from grandma’s garden with many additonal twists. Dahlias, hydrangeas, roses, sweetpeas, lamb’s ear, dusty miller, clematis, queen anne’s lace, euphorbia and so much more.
Her bouquet was designed in a flat european-style with stunningly textural elements and details beyond imagination.
This weekend we had two beautiful weddings staged around the deep rich color purple. Classics such as sweet peas and roses, freesia and lisianthus play beautifully together.
In our first wedding of the weekend, the bride carried a classic cream colored bouquet of ‘helga piaget’ garden roses, cream colored ‘vendela’ roses, hydrangea, miniature callas, sweet peas and freesia. Her attendants carried luscious bouquets of ‘vendela’ roses, purple trachelium, lavender freesia, hydrangea and deep purple sweet peas.
The wedding was held at Heathman Lodge. For her reception, the centerpieces included much wonderment. Tall pilsner vases were filled with lavish overstuffed arrangements of roses, hydrangea, plum dahlias, tulips, orchids, jasmine vine and clematis flowers. A truly whimsical organic setting was created for the reception!
Our second wedding of the day was held at Lac De Fleur Gardens in Washougal. A beautiful free form bouquet of roses, lilies, sweet peas, green hydrangea, calla lilies, and freesia was created. With our signature maiden hair fern and grasses, the bouquet was breathtaking.
The girls carried bouquets of luscious flowers in soft neutral colors. Roses, orchids, hydrangea, freesia and lisianthus created these stunningly simple clutch-style bouquets. Touches of maidenhair fern and ladies mantle softened the overall effect beautifully.
An impomptu wedding day arrived for a darling bride, as deserving as any looking forward to a beautiful spring day. Every wish was granted for Julie. In the brightness, freshness and newness of the day, her flowers mirrored the overall feeling.
Her bouquet shown below consisted of a wonderful array of textural wonderment. From lusciously full hydrangeas and garden roses, to succulents, sweetpeas, jasmine vine, and hellebores. Some many fabulous elements were combined in this tapestry of botanical wildness.
Stunning flowers were added to embelish her beautiful cake.
Once in a while, team FW gets a project that might be considered out of the realm of a flower shop’s regular duties…But not to us! We welcome all the quirky ‘odd requests’ with excitement, pouring into them creativity and life. This last week, we were faced with a ‘pumpkin carving party’ yard project.
A good customer came to us and requested a festive scene fit for all the ghosty and gobliny kids of the neighborhood to exercise their creative pumpkin wielding. We created a six-foot scarecrow with lighting pumpkin head, a ‘trick or treat’ pumpkin totem of stacked pumpkins and bittersweet, and a patch with beautiful autumn mums, corn, millet, apples, pumpkins, and gourds. We sure had fun doing it. And everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Happy Halloween and Pumpkin carving Nielsen Family!!
We meet with so many bride’s in the spring, that we are almost nonchalant about it. Summer is a distant concept. Our weddings are “down-the-road.” Certainly, we understand and value each and every bride that entrusts us with her flowers to complete the day that has taken her hours upon hours of planning and endless details. We have, as well, spent hours upon hours working with our growers and wholesalers, purchased ribbon in just the right shade of purple, babied roses and other flowers to the perfect stage, and communicated with our bride’s almost more than our own family members. But, it’s all worth it.
We finally know, after all the sweat and stress of making sure everything is just right, that we have done our job. We finally understand just how important our role is when we see our bride’s faces on their special day. Many, many times, we see our brides begin to tear up, give us a gigantic hug, and just plan gloat about “my florist” to all of their family and wedding party. We value each and every bride that comes to us, trusts us and gives us a little creative freedom to show them what we can do. Here are a few of our special bride’s bouquets from the past month. Enjoy!
My oh my, the last few weeks, we have had some weddings. Aside from heading to San Francisco…There have been tons of weddings. We do only take 3 a weekend. We are not the flower shop that wants more more more. We take pride in our work and provide our customers with quality, attention to detail and care. That being said, there are lots to show…Enjoy!
Stacey’s Beautiful Wedding Flowers…
This weekend, we did wedding flowers for a bride getting married in Canby, Oregon. Beautiful weather, a perfect outdoor barn, and stunning blossoms.
Fantastic classic wedding flowers such as roses, sweetpeas, hydrangeas, orchids, and stephanotis were used in soft shades of pink, white and deep eggplant color. This soft and gardeny style fit her personality and venue perfectly. We added a bit of subtle bling with the addition of some rhinestones in her bouquet as well. Enjoy!

This stunning bouquet was created for a bride at Skamania Lodge last weekend. Julie created it with the use of fragrant lilacs, late season snowball viburnum, luscious maiden hair fern, ‘Helga Piaget’ garden roses, wood hyacinth, grasses, and fern curls. This casual wonderful style fit the bride’s personality perfectly.
Sympathy flowers can create a calm and relaxing mood for family as they are greiving. This past week, we were given the opportunity to create flowers for a stunningly simple funeral held in Brush Prairie.
