Florain Park Wedding

Samantha + Jim = FALLing in Love
A Beautiful September Wedding

Photographer: Mia S Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Ceremony: St. Boniface
Reception: Florian Park

Autumn has such stunning colors, especially when they're incorporated into a wedding!

The couple chose a bright arrangement of calla, leucadendron, roses, kangaroo paw, pepperberry, and smokebush in gorgeous deep reds, oranges, and tangerines that are the definition of fall! This arrangement was so colorful and fun, we were thrilled to make it!

Samantha and Jim's wedding last September started out at their church, St. Boniface in Germantown. There they said their "I do's" surrounded by friends and family. The day continued on to the reception at Florian Park, where the night was full of much love and laughter.

We were so excited to have been part of Samantha and Jim's special day (who could say no to those colors?!) and wish the couple many happy years to come. Congrats Samantha and Jim!

Our Vase Giveaway!

Our Vase Giveaway!
What a Success!

As you well may know we at Bank of Flowers do our Friday Name Game where we give away free flowers to those who are the picked names for that Friday. Well, we decided to up our Fridays even more!

On September 1st, we hosted our Vase Giveaway. This giveaway was one for the books! Both of our Bank of Flowers locations opened at 8 AM to give away free vases to the first 150 people through our doors. These special vases can be brought back to the store every Friday for the rest of the year to be filled with FREE FLOWERS!

The giveaway was a HUGE success. Both locations had a lone down the block (with the earliest people lining up at 5:45!). All vases had a home by 8:30 AM and those who didn't receive a vase left with a gorgeous rose. We couldn't have pulled this off without all the hard work of our Bank of Flowers teams (and of course our shop kitty Chloe!).

Congrats to all of our Vase Giveaway winners, we can't wait to see you every Friday for the rest of the year!

Germantown Wedding

Amy + Will = LOVE
A Stunning May Wedding

Ceremony: Lutheran Church of the Living Christ 
Reception: Florian Park Conference and Event Center
Florist: Bank of Flowers
Photographer:  Sami Lyn Photographer

Amy and Will were married back in May in Germantown, WI at a cute little church tucked back in a wooded prairie, Lutheran Church of the Living Christ.

The bride's bouquet was filled with my favorite flower -  peonies!!  Cream peonies and blush roses made the bouquet so lush and elegant, and the fragrance filled the room where there girls were getting ready.  The bouquets complimented the bridesmaids long dresses which were all different shades of blushes and nudes.

The men wore boutonnieres made from  petite blush spray roses accented with lush greenery.  The groom's boutonniere was made from the same blush spray roses, and accented with a hyacinth blossom to add an extra touch of class.

To carry on with the classic feel, vintage bottles were used to decorate the church and the reception.  A lush long and low arrangement draped off the alter and was later used at the bride and grooms head table.

Congratulations to Amy and Will, we were honored to be a part of your special day!

Boho Styled Engagement

Lexi + Tomek = Future Couple!
A Whimsical Engagement Session

Photographer: Nikki Kate Photography
Florist: Bank of Flowers

This engagement session was one for the books!

Lexi and Tomek's engagement was full of love, laughter, and happiness! The gorgeous woods scenery with the sunset made us swoon! And who could forget their precious pooch?

The couple chose a bouquet of whites with a few splashes of peach and red, and of course many greens. Lexi also wore a beautiful flower crown that tied together the boho style they were going for.

We are so thankful to have been part of this stunning engagement (which was beautifully captured by Nikki Kate Photography!) and cannot wait for their wedding next year! Cheers!
