Silver Spring Wedding

Melissa and Alex, A Beautiful Wedding Day

Ceremony & Reception: Silver Spring Country Club, Menomonee Falls
Photographer: Katie Guth Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Month: September

The word "Romantic" comes to mind when I think about Melissa and Alex's wedding day. From the soft color palette of whites and blushes, to the lush fairy-tale looking greenery used, and even the candle-lit lanterns and mercury glass, all came together to give a simple, elegant feel to this love story.    
A simple wood arch was adorned with hydrangeas, garden and spray roses, astilbe, and rich greens like bay leaf and eucalyptus.  The open patio doors behind gave an open airy feel.  To add to the charm, candle-lit lanterns were scattered around and accented with blossoms to match the arch.
The bouquets and boutonnieres followed the same floral theme of hydrangeas, stock, peach garden roses, soft pink spray roses, and pink astilbe, with soft greenery accents like eucalyptus, bay leaves, and dusty miller.
The lovely romantic floral theme was carried through to the reception were it was really brought to life by lovely mercury glass pedistal vases, mercury votives, and hanging jewels. A truly beautiful event.  Thank you for letting us help you create your dream wedding Melissa and Alex! Congratulations!

Joshua & Greg - A Perfect Match

Ceremony: Potowatomi Hotel- Harmony Room
Reception:Potowatomi Hotel- Serenity Room and Patio
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Month: July

Josh stopped in one day, out of the blue, to discuss flowers for his wedding.  He had some great ideas for both the ceremony and reception at the Potowatomi Hotel on the weekend of the 4th of July.  He and his groom Greg wanted a little elegance, a little glitz, and lots of fun. 

This wedding had quite a few firsts for me, my first time at Potowatomi Hotel and my first gay wedding, among them. As with traditional weddings, the grooms had ladies standing up for them, we call them Groomsmaids (name, patent pending ). The Groomsmaids bouquets were a mix of white hydrangea, white mini calla lilies, dusty miller topped with Blue Bom dendrobium orchid blossoms and finished in white ribbon and rhinestone wraps.  The groomsmen all wore orchid blossoms and the grooms wore a single mini calla.

The ceremony was set in the Harmony Room where a center table was accented by tall arrangements matching the reception pieces and two garden urns filled with curly willow branches.  In the Serenity Room at the reception, each table was topped with the same tall vases filled with curly willow and white hydrangea.  Clear hanging vases filled with tealights hung from the branches.  The Groomsmaids' bouquets were used to dress the head table.

We loved working with Josh and Greg, and thank them for giving Bank of Flowers the opportunity to create the wedding they hoped for.  We wish them love and happiness for their wedded life together.

Turner Hall Ballroom

Elizabeth + Brian = Love

Ceremony and Reception: Turner Hall
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Photographer: Gloss Photography Studios
Month: August

What better place to get married than the heart of it all in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Liz and Brian planned their dream wedding so their guests could experience the urban beauty of our great city at the historical Turner Hall. Turner Hall Ballroom is a two story 7,000 square foot space that was originally used by German Immigrants of Milwaukee for weekly concerts, dances and theatrical performances.   This gem of a space was fully renovated in the early 2000 after nearly being vacant for 70 years.  Congratulations Elizabeth and Brian!
