Peonies are one of the most popular spring flowers, especially for weddings. I haven’t met a bride who doesn’t love this romantic bloom. They make the perfect focal point for any arrangement whether it be used in a bouquet or a centerpiece.
I especially love peonies clustered together in monochromatic colors. You can use pink peonies to make a modern statement or use white peonies to set the tone for an elegant affair.
When I think of spring, one of the first flowers that comes mind are lily of the valley. They are beautiful wildflowers that bloom in the spring. They have a delicate bell shape and are extremely fragrant.
Lily of the valley makes a perfect addition to any spring bridal bouquet. They are just as stunning all on their own. Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly even had lily of the valley bouquets!
Megan and Paul had a beautiful winter wedding on December 17, 2011. Their ceremony was at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Lake Orion, followed by lots of partying at the Lafayette Grande in Pontiac. Check out the fun trailer from 5th and Main Productions!
Fun, fun, fun!!! Allyson and Marc were so amazing to work with… laid back, casual and super cool are a few words we’d use to describe this duo. Planning a Michigan wedding from out of state, they knew they were going to need some help. We not only provided hands-on planning assistance throughout their engagement, we also provided all of the decor and floral.
With a guest list of only 24, we were able to use a family members backyard for this intimate and casual event. Seating all the guests at one long (beautiful!) family style table helped everyone feel like they were at a family dinner party, rather than a more traditional wedding. We used a mixture of silver mercury glass, rustic wood planter boxes, succulents, candles, tons of floral and heirloom family china to create the dining table.
Allyson’s bouquet was designed with burgundy dahlias, purple ranunculus, variegated greens, scabosia pods and succulents, giving it a summery and very textural look. The mens boutonnieres are created with mini succulents, scabosia pods and seeded eucalyptus. The flower girls mini birch ball (accented with a burgundy dahlia) was one of my favorite pieces of the day!
Calynn Berry was on hand to photograph the event… and as you can see from the above photos, she captured every essence of the day!
Can we say GORGEOUS?? Not only are the bride and groom beautiful, the room decor was over the top! Le Reve Creations , out of Virginia, drove in with truck loads of goodies to help transform the ballroom of the Marriott Renaissance Center into a spectacular event.
We provided our Signature Flourish Coordination services throughout the weekend helping with everything from guest experience, set-up, logistics and timing (and of course, everything else that happened throughout the weekend!). We had a blast working with all of the vendors, but especially Fauzeen and Ali from The Q Studio! Not only did they provide all of the photography, they also had their video team on hand. (We posted their same day edit film here).
400+ guests, 3 events + one crazy weekend = so much fun!!

I love it when brides use props for their engagement photos. That balloon is super fun… and those tights, those are even more fun!! Jessica and Eric are getting married on May 11, 2012 at The Lafayette Grande in Pontiac. We’re super pumped to be working with E’Lisa from E.C. Campbell Photography for the first time too!
We had such a great time working with Kristen Taylor on this lovely Royal Park Hotel wedding. With Nadine and Ryan (and many of their guests) being from out of state, they knew they needed some help pulling all of the final details together. We provided our Signature Flourish Coordination for them and helped with all of the logistics of the day.
Nadine was super detail oriented so we knew their wedding was going to be fabulous. The Lighting Guy, Special Events Rentals, and Bellasario created the perfect “wow” factor when guests walked into the ballroom with amazing lighting, draping, and floral. Guests enjoyed the talented musicians of Panache during cocktail hour, and both a band and DJ during the reception. Bringing their two families together was great and we couldn’t have been more pleased to work with them!
Megan and Paul’s wedding is in less than 2 months and we’re super excited to share their day with them. They’ve planned their winter wedding at the historical Layfayette Grand in Pontiac for December 17th. We can’t wait to see the wedding photos from Jess & Nate Studios! (PS: Paul is Kendall’s big brother… do you recognize Megan from her bridal party?)
Thanks for sharing Jess & Nate!
