Katie and Michael, Part II

Hello and happy Friday! As a follow up to yesterday's post, we wanted to show you some of Jimmy Ho's photos from the event. You can see more of Katie and Michael's wedding on Jimmy's blog by clicking here.

Katie's bouquet was made up of beautiful mini purple calla lilies that were hand tied with fabric from her dress.

Here's another great shot of her bouquet...

Katie's bridesmaids had a similar look, except they carried bouquets of white mini callas. You can also see Michael's boutonniere, which was a purple calla lily, while his groomsmen wore white ones.

Congratulations Katie and Michael!! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Thank you for letting The Plant Shoppe be a part of your big day!

Katie and Michael: Part I

Katie and Michael were married back in February at Queen of Peace Catholic Church and had their ceremony at Sweetwater Branch Inn. This first post is going to showcase their reception decor.

The centerpieces at the event were made up of six white milk glasses vases, filled with a mix of purple flowers. Below is an example of two different tables.

Up next, on the appetizer table for their cocktail hour, we have a beautiful arrangement with curly willow accented with some purple orchids.

And finally, I love this picture of the guest book table. Not only can you really see the white vases and flowers, but you also can see a sneak peek of the gardens at Sweetwater - so beautiful!

Be sure and check back for our next post, showcasing the bridal party's bouquets! :)

Have you missed our frequent blog posts? It's no secret that we haven't posted in a while, but that's because we have been busy little bees at The Plant Shoppe. Lots of things have been happening around the shop in the last few weeks. Baby Andrew is growing and a little over 2 months old, Abbey is about to be SEVEN and Whitney (that's me!) got married! So.... we apologize that we have been a little absent on the blog, but get ready, we have lots in store to share.

So, be sure and follow along as we update and share all the exciting things we have been doing. Also, be sure you are following us on Facebook for contests, updates, and exciting things that are coming!

In the meantime, check out what we can make... isn't this perfect for a summer surprise!?!?
