    I met with Malia and her mom well over a year ago to discuss planning their wedding flowers. They had a crystal clear vision of what they wanted and it was so nice to see their details finally come together. Pink was the color of the day, for sure. For now, here’s a shot of Malia’s bouquet along with her sassy pink shoes and purse. Her bouquet is a mix of cream and bridal pink roses, calla lilies, cymbidium orchids and stephanotis blooms.

    I loved Jinni and Nick… within about 10 minutes during our first consult appointment we were laughing and having a great time. Nick was a great sport in feigning interest in shades of white, joking as to why pomanders shouldn’t be hung in pairs and showing support for Jinni and all her ideas on how to make their wedding their own.

    We stuck with a classic white and green color palette with modern and whimsical touches throughout. For now, here’s a few pics (courtesy of Lucky Clover Productions) of her bridal bouquet (a mix of import and domestic Akito roses, green hypericum berries and aspidistra leaves).

    Amanda & Nick were married at Drees Pavillion on a perfect Sunday afternoon. Amanda Egan captured these beautiful photos highlighting their classic and romantic details. See more from this wedding {here}

    Her bouquets were a mix of warm peachy-pinks and coral tones including mixed roses and peonies handtied in lush clusters.

    Doesn’t she have the most gorgeous blue eyes?! Makeup by the always amazing Nancy of Brideface.
    They were married outside overlooking the Cincinnati skyline under an arbor “blooming” with dendrobium orchids.
    Their cake was from one of Cincinnati’s best bakeries – The BonBonerie. The ‘finish’ on their work is always beautiful. The icing was so smooth it could’ve almost passed for fondant. The design was classic and elegant, perfectly fitting the rest of the details of the day.
    Their centerpieces were 3 vases clustered together with simple groupings of flowers. The pinspot lighting on all white flowers really adds a warm ambiance to the whole room as the flowers reflect the light and really pop in a dimly lit room.
    I told Amanda that I was simply amazed by this next picture. This was taken overlooking the city lights. Normally I would expect to see a ‘fog’ surrounding the lights this close to the city but this skyline shot is so crisp you can actually see the stars!! Great work, Amanda. It’s been so great working with you so many weeks in a row. The eye candy has been awesome :)

    Gayle is one of the sweetest and spunkiest clients I’ve gotten to work with lately – one of my favorite qualities!! We incorporated a trendy black and green color scheme with more unusual and organic textural elements.

    All photos are courtesy of Amanda Egan with more photos from this lovely wedding {here}. This next photo is simply stunning!

    Gayle’s makeup was done by Mollie Elliott with Brideface. Her bouquet included a unique combination of china mums, white mini calla lilies, green goddess calla lilies, star of bethlehem, bouvardia, hypericum berries and camelia foliage.

    The bridesmaids carried spunky green fuji mums, lisianthus, star of bethlehem and hypericum berries accented with laurel leaves.

    I just love the fact that the Bell Event Centre allows so much candlelight… isn’t this just beautiful?!
    One of the first questions I ask my potential clients is how they’re infusing their personalities into their wedding day. Regardless of your budget there are always one or two things that you can do to make your event unique and stand out in your guests mind. For Gayle and Jon it was their cake – or their lack of one, actually :)
    They had yummy waffles from a vendor in Findlay Market come in and do custom order waffles in place of cake. What a fun and tasty treat and something that everyone will always remember about their wedding.

    Kate and Thomas did the majority of their planning for their wedding while living in Michigan. And despite the obvious stress and difficulties that come with planning an out-of-town event their wedding by all accounts was fabulous.

    Having a great team of vendors is always helpful in pulling off such a feat and this wedding was no exception. The ceremony and reception were held at the Taft Museum of Art. Julie with Cincy Event Planning was on board to coordinate the whole affair and ensure everything went smoothly. All photographs are courtesy of Amanda Egan - we’ve been lucky enough to work together 5 of the last 7 weekends so be on the lookout for more photos from her!

    As for flowers, we wanted to incorporate a fresh take on vintage southern charm. Kate’s flowers were lush and fragrant including peonies, freesia, bouvardia, stephanotis, lisianthus, fresh rosemary and magnolia leaves tied with dupioni silk.

    and just because I love this picture:
